31  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Toilet paper rolls, cardboard milk jugs on: May 24, 2007 03:37:41 PM
These are two items I always have too many of- toilet paper rolls and cardboard milk jugs (like the kind that organic and soy milk come in)  I've cut the milk jugs in half before to make small boxes, but I only need so many.  I had an idea to paint the toilet paper rolls, cut the in half, and glue them into some kind of wall art, but I don't know if I want to do that.
Any ideas for what I could make with these?
32  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / A good book to learn weaving on: May 13, 2007 07:29:56 AM
After looking around on here, this is something I'd really like to try.  Does anyone know of a good book to learn weaving from?
33  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sunglasses holder on: May 09, 2007 04:27:36 PM
I got a lovely new pair of sunglasses a few weeks ago, but alas, they did not fit in any of my sunglasses cases.  Being too thrifty to go out and buy one, I decided to kniw one.  Basically it's two rectangles of stockinette knit sewn together, but you could use garter or seed stitch or anything else too.  I chose to have two layers so it would be a bit thicker and protect the lens from scratches.


34  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Orange you glad... that I love blueberries on: May 09, 2007 04:19:44 PM
So, I loved the Orange You Glad bag, but I live in Florida.  The only people that have oranges on their purses are primarily tourists.  And I never wear orange.  So I decided I would revamp the purse with blues and a blueberry.  I also changed up the strips on the strap, and made the strap longer.  I put in some snap closures after the photo was taken to keep it closed.  To make the blueberry star (I'm not sure what you would call it) this is roughly the pattern:
chain 3, sl st into first loop.  2 sl sts in each back loop (6sts)
2 sl st in each back loop (12 sts)
then I tried to be random, but for each of the points I would ch 3, dc in same st, hdc in nxt st, sl st in same st.  I varied it a bit with each one, so that it would look more organic and natural.
Hope you like it! (This is my first post!)

(I couldn't get it to post my pics, but here's a link to them)
