PVA isn't sold in small enough quantities around here for my liking, but I got some rubber cement and it seems like it will work, so I just need to not be hesitant to cut the fabric, and if I'm brave, book might be done today Cheesy I want to a different fabric on the spine, so I'm trying to guesstimate how wide I want that strip to be and raid my mother's sewing kit because the sewing machine isn't working right now and I don't know how to use it anyway.

thanks for your help!

yay! Okay, had to fiddle around a bit in word to figure it out because I have Word 2002, but I figured it out!

I'm currently stuck on how to attach the fabric I have to the bookcover cardboard that I bought, because I think it's too heavy to sew with, but I want to have a really sturdy cover so I still want to use it =/

hmm... okay, after reading through it and reading that tutorial a bunch of times I think I sort of get the gist. I've seen tutorials for how to do the cover and such, so my main problem is just getting together the actual pages... I need to find a program (or figure out how to do this in word) that will let me arrange the text into smaller 1/4 pages. Then I need to find A3 paper.

But this should work! Thank you =D

Yeah, I think the biggest thing is getting the materials together...

So I need:
A3 paper (3 or 4 sheets?)
Fabric or something else for the cover
Bookboard/Heavy Cardboard
Some sort of glue or something to attach cover bits and book insides together

So I wrote a short story for someone but instead of just e-mailing it to him I want to print it out and do something cool with it so I can mail it to him, but I know nothing about paper crafts and I have no idea what my options even are.  Huh

It was supposed to be a very short story. Like a page or two which would've been easy. I could've just printed it out and stuck it on decorated cardboard or framed it or something. But it's more like three and a half pages, single spaced. It's a tiny bit over 1900 words. It's an awkward length =/

I don't want to add illustrations. It's a very simply story and doesn't really call for pictures. But... I'm honestly at a loss as to what to do with it and I've digged through the boards a bit and can't find anything similar.

So... help please? There's a paper store I can walk to and probably will be going to tomorrow, but I don't want to go without some sort of project idea.

Thank you everyone!

Very cute, and Wow that you did it freehand!  Good job.  I like how his neck tips back to get to the chapstick.

I kinda think thread would show too much, through.  Maybe you already know this, but if you leave a long tail of yarn when you finish a piece, you can use that to attach it to the other pieces.  Doesn't make the sewing any easier, I reckon, but it does make for less yarn ends to weave in.

I didn't even realize that I did this freehand. That makes me happy. I always thought I'd never be able to work without a pattern!

I do leave long tails of yarn, when I remember, but it still gets a bit annoying. Ah well. I guess there isn't too much I can do to make it easier on me Smiley

I got the idea from these, by the way, to give credit where credit's due, but I did work after having only seen them the one time. Looking back at them now, I like mine more ^_^

Maybe if I had one of these my daughter would stop eating my Chapstick.

Yes, I said eating.  Wink

haha, oh no! I guess that's better than some of the other things kids eat though, right?

Thank you all for the compliments! I appreciate them muchly.

If only I had the patience to make more of these because I have lots of friends who would love them. The problem I had was sewing everything together neatly. Maybe I should start trying to use thread instead of yarn?

Inspired by all the creative lip balm cozies, I decided to make my own. I'm not exactly sure how I ended up making a penguin, but I did... And I think it's adorable because it very looks like it was made by a beginner =D I am essentially a beginner still anyway, so it's okay. This was my first lipbalm cozy and my first thing this small with this many details.

All made with RHSS yarn and Caron Simply Soft. The orange is a red heart sport weight which is like RHSS but slightly different.

Have no idea what hook I used. D? E? F? Somewhere around there.
