251  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: A gift for someone I hardly know on: April 19, 2007 08:57:37 AM
Hi There!
Maybe a gift voucher from a local wool supplier?
If you want to make her something, what about a couple of felt play balls for her pets? You could put a sort of jingle bell in the middle, in a small plastic container, like something from a Kinder surprise egg, and felt wool around it?
If you can't felt, don't panic! You can felt  knitted wool in a washing machine! I've seen it done in books, although never tried myself -

I think serialdeviant's ideas are great -
I think what makes it more challenging is that it is for a guy! ( always tons of stuff for girls)
Maybe you could try to make a pocket kite, or you could decorate a bought item, like a frame, or a CD cover?
253  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Fill a Shoe Box Swap! on: April 19, 2007 08:37:46 AM
take a shoe box (either one of the plastic ones that you can buy at the store or a cardboard one <- with a cover) decorate it ...then fill it with goodies .

That's a great idea! But wouldn't it be a bit heavy to send? Also some countries don't let you send food in the post Undecided -
I 'd love a "crafting special" shoe box!
254  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Discussion and Questions / Re: I come here, For only YOU will understand on: April 18, 2007 02:20:15 PM
And i now have a nice autumnal leafy braclet!

You are so right! I just love making intricate designs on small felt objects, it's like drawing! So many details -I find it impossible with wet felt!
255  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Re: A Vessel on: April 18, 2007 02:15:19 PM
yes, I used the balloon method!
I've made felt vessels in the past using tins, wood block, plastic bowls... anything that can take a beating and a steaming! Cheesy
But I've never used a balloon! What kind of balloon? I've always wanted to make something with a wide body and small aperture.
Also, do you find that something shaped with steam does not necesarily keep its shape very well?
256  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Re: what are the rules on banknotes in art work? on: April 18, 2007 01:44:09 PM
I use old money in a lot of art-especially now that so much of Europe is on the Euro, the old money isn't worth any monetary value.
Actually most countries still change their old banknotes - check http://www.ecb.int/bc/exchange/html/index.en.html
And also I'd be careful if you wanted to use copies of the banknotes instead as they will be regarded as fraud ( because they have a value) or an infringement of copyrights! ( you can read all about it here: http://www.artquest.org.uk/artlaw/money/29596.htm)
