1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Pricing on scarves on: April 14, 2009 02:48:37 PM
My school has started selling student arts/crafts in the bookstore, and I want to sell some scarves there, but i don't know what to price them at. They're both plain pink scarves, about 80 inches by 2.5 inches,  made out of this thin yarn I salvaged off an ugly sweater. The fiber is 40% merino, 30% viscose, 20% angora, 10% cashmere.

It's really nice yarn, but I have no idea how much scarves usually go for. Any help?

The Jo-Anns black friday sale is the the BEST SALE EVER. It is the only black friday sale I am willing to brave. At least in my area (Portland, OR), they have polar fleece for 2.99 a yard, flannel for 1.49 a yard, 99 cent patterns, and 99 cent fat quarters, plus 20% off your whole purchase on top of all that.

Sweet! Those look super comfy, plus they have penguins. What more could you ever want from the world?

Howdy doody, everybody. It's been a while since I've been around.

So Jo-anns had a Black Friday sale that just couldn't be beat. Polar fleece was $2.99 a yard, even the patterned stuff, plus you got 20% off your entire purchase.

I originally went to get stuff for making christmas presents, but then I saw this fabric and did the math, realizing that I could have a pair of polar fleece pants for $3.60.

Hells YEAH.

I whipped these up using Simplicity pattern 3640. It took about 2 hours; or rather, it would have taken 2 hours if I'd worked at it straight, and the internet didn't keep distracting me. As it was, it took about 2 days to finish Undecided

BUT... now I have awesome fuzzy pants.

The awesome fuzzy pants.

I am making a hat and scarf for my cousin's baby daughter, and I'm not sure how big around to make the hat. She is about 14 months old, and neither exceptionally large nor exceptionally small.

I love it. Most girls might rather have hearts or Zac Effron on their bag, but then, most girls are lame. Rock the Godzilla.

I agree- the ruffles look very classy.

Nice job!

Very nice! Did you use a pattern (if so, which one)?
10  COOKING / Dessert / More oatmeal breakfast bar goodness, this time in mint chocolate! on: December 07, 2008 04:17:19 PM
My first batch of the oatmeal cookies is running dangerously low (already...) so I decided it was time for round two. This time, I attempted to recreate my very favoritest Cool Mint Chocolate ClifBars.

My recipe:
3 c. oats (NOT instant oatmeal)
1 c. flour (I used whole wheat)
3/4 c. applesauce
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 egg
1/3 c. milk
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp. mint extract
3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Step 1. Mix together the applesauce and sugar.
Step 2. Add the rest of the liquid ingredients.
Step 3. Add all the solid ingredients. Adding the cocoa powder and flour before the oatmeal will make this easier to mix.
Step 4. Form 12 equal bars on a greased baking pan and bake for 10 minutes at 375 F.

The Results:
It definitely doesn't taste like ClifBars, but it doesn't taste bad, either. It was a little to minty (even for me, who loves mint with the great passion of a thousand suns) and not chocolaty enough. I would suggest cutting down to 1 tsp or even 1/2 tsp of mint extract, and either adding more cocoa powder, or adding some dark chocolate chunks. It also has a very different texture from Clifbars; because of the baking soda, they're much lighter and fluffier.
