Ooo, the fleece boas are cool! I'm gonna have to make some of those. So easy too. And I love your monkey avatar joeychen.  Wink
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Photo Bookmarks on: December 15, 2003 12:56:36 PM
I had a bunch of small, extra photos from portrait sessions and some scraps of watercolor paper that had been painted with a wash. I tore the paper to the size of bookmarks (scored first), ran the photos through the Xyron sticker machine, and added ribbon at the top. You could use any photo or image.

I haven't seen the scarves that are all fringe. Do you have a link to any?

For the hats, I started following these intructions, but I ended up adapting them slightly. Here's what I did:

1. Measure fleece to 13" for hat length, and approx. 23" (adjust to your head size) for circumference. Cut fabric. Fold fabric in half lengthwise and cut in half (so you should end up with 2 pieces that are about 11 1/2" x 13").

2. Sew along both 13" lengths.

3. Sew along one 11 1/2" length.

4. Keeping hat inside out, trim away excess seam. (Since the brim will be turned up, you don't want excess seams showing.)

5. With hat still inside out, align seams so that they are one on top of the other. The tips should form triangles at the top.

6. Stitch a single row across the top of the triangle, about 1/4-1/2" down. Trim away excess seam.

7. Turn hat right side out. Fold up seam and hem around the brim. Trim away excess seam.

8. To create a pom-pom, see instructions on Martha site above.

9. Voila! You're done. To wear, the brim is folded upwards.

That's the beauty of fleece, it doesn't fray! The ones for women are not hemmed in any way (except where the two different colored panels are sewn together of course). The ones for men are hemmed on each side... I just liked the look it gave.

I'm sure a lot of you have made these before, but this was a first for me so I wanted to show them off! We're giving them as Christmas gifts this year.


The ones made for women/girls are two-toned with a pom-pom on the hat and fringe on the scarf. And I made this camo one for me!


The ones for men are plainer, without a pom-pom or fringe and are either a solid color or a print.

I was surprised how easy they are to make (especially the hats, which kind of scared me... I don't sew much).

Oooooo, very cool! How did you do it? Just decoupaged onto an existing frame?

I don't have a pattern, but I saw instructions for an auromotherapy eye satchet recently (can't remember where I saw the unfortunately) that sounded really easy. You just get some nice fabric and cut two recantgles large enough to fit completely over your eyes (leaving a seam allowance). Then you sew up 3 sides. You add some essential oil to rice and let it soak it up completely, then fill the bag with the rice and sew the other side shut. I haven't tried it, but it's high on my crafting list to try.

I grew up in the SA vicinity, and my parents are still there. I'll have to check out scrapbook Heaven when I'm there next time!

SA has some of my favorite thrifting in the state, especially on the South side where it's less picked over. Pull out a phone book and a map and just go find some of them.
10  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re:?baby food jars? on: November 22, 2003 03:43:50 PM
I have used them to as containers for homemade brown sugar scrub (then given as gifts). I paint the lids to make them more decorative.

I am hosting a baby shower in a couple of months so I think I'm gonna steal that idea!
