11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Mod Podge and Rubber Cement... ??? on: March 15, 2009 09:13:03 PM
Hello!   Grin

I would like to make my sister some wall letter things as per thankyoulocust's thread and tute here:


But alas I have no Mod Podge.  Sad

However, I DO have rubber cement. Elmer's brand pretty good stuff you know...

So I was wondering if the rubber cement and mod podge are anywhere similar enough that I could use my rubber cement instead? I've never used Mod Podge before and I don't know the consistency or anything else.

If I can't interchange them I will just have to go pick some up. But I thought I would ask you experienced Craftsters your opinion because it would be nice to get started right now. I haven't used these two things enough to know how similar they are.

Oh I also think it would be pertinent to mention that I will be using cardboard letters cut by hand from old boxes instead of the sweet wooden ones from the craft store. Got to recycle what you can! So maybe that is important because it could get soggy or something I don't know.

But anyways...

Thanks a ton for your help!

Thank you! Cheesy

yeah the carrots are handmade! and actually very easy i bet you could do it.
they are just frosting and i sort of piped it forward a little and then backed it up on itself and then forward and back again until it was a good length and the end just tapered itself off which was helpful. the leaves are a leaf tip of course so that was easy. maybe a picture would help you with the carrots? if you want i'll try!!

yes peppermint is definitely my favorite!! haha

so i am a serious lurker/obsessive bookmarker.
but i decided what the heck i'll post some things i've made.
which is about four cakes- nothing special here.
haven't worked up the courage to try fondant yet though.
i have a box of wilton in the pantry but i don't really want to ruin a good tasting cake with its not so good taste. haha so i'm waiting  Smiley
(hope the pictures work! really crossing my fingers)

first one was for my dad for fathers day last year.
tasted divine and looked pretty too!
chocolate cake with buttercream frosting and chocolate ganache:

Mother's day cake (also from last year haha)
mom was on a "healthy" run like she gets sometimes but you can't not make a cake!
so i made carrot to pretend it was healthy  Wink
the frosty got crusty though yuck. not using that recipe again!

This one is mine hehe
made for myself since no one else wanted to  Sad
its chocolate peppermint cake with peppermint frosting and peppermint peppermints on top haha
you can sort of see where it got stabbed by the candles  Undecided

Last one!
made it with my sister - its just chocolate with frosting from a can...
and of course i had to go and write grooy instead of groovy so thats why the v is wonky
the colors were a lot lighter than we'd hoped but whatever that didn't compromise on the taste so i'm not complainin'!

I am jealous of your fondant skills.
It looks like it came right off of Ace of Cakes!
Three thumbs up!

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lots of Muslin? on: February 06, 2009 04:26:09 PM
So I was going to make a pirate shirt for my brother and I went to wal-mart and bought the most pirate shirty fabric that I could find which was some muslin. So I figured out how much I needed to make two (one for him then one for me) and got one yard of extra because i've never sewn anything but pajama pants before. and those were from an actual pattern. so the lady cut the fabric and i thought wow that looks like a lot once she folded it up but i watched her measure it so i just let it go. so then i came home and i remembered looking on the edge of the fabric board thing (sorry i don't know all the lingo) and it said 108" and i had no idea what that meant because i thought fabric from wal-mart only came in 45" or 60" so i ignored it. came home made the shirts (his looks good! the neck line in the back is quite wonky but i didn't know how to fix it) and then after i was done then i realized what the 108" meant. ha ha.

So now i have 2 or 3 or 4 yards or so of muslin and i wanted to make some cute clothes since i have it left over and you can't waste good fabric! but what clothes could i make out of muslin?

does anyone have any ideas?

ps. i'm pretty beginner in the sewing area but my mom knows whats going on.

Thank you!!  Smiley
