Making cool things when I should be studying

Check out Julie Jackson's Subversive Cross Stitch book - you could make one for him ("Go Fuck Yourself", "Bite Me", "Get a Life", "Get Lost" or "Have a Nice Life") or make one as a cautionary reminder for yourself ("Rat Bastard" or "Love Stinks").
I always told my partner that if we broke up I'd sent him a dead rat in the mail. We broke up and got back together, but he has been warned!
Good luck, and remember that a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle.

I LOVE this thread! Grin

I'd probably put an ugly photo of him, iron-on transferred to a t-shirt or pillow, and stencil "I AM A WANKER" or something similiar on it (I'm not very original). If I know there's a place he'll be, or a place he picks up (for my last one, the university student lounge), I'd leave the pillow there for other girls to enjoy Grin

Lousy boyfriends and lousier breakups suck. Ick.

Anyway, if anybody is looking for a knitted voodoo doll pattern, there's one on The Anti-craft website..


It's so cute. Plus, you get to imagine that it's your ex and poke it to death with needles. (Aim for the eyes, heart and the nether regions..hehe.) Awesome. 

Oh, I also second the Subversive Cross Stitch idea.

Ugh... sounds like you're WAY better off without that guy.  So congratulations on  your Jerk Boy Liberation!!!   Wink  I vote for a voodoo doll of some kind, but that's only because it lightened up my mood after a breakup (nothing like jamming pins in where the sun don't shine!).  If you don't want to knit one, you can always sew, glue, staple, or otherwise construct one that will serve the same purpose. 

In the event you want to do something less angst-riddled, you could make something really nice for yourself to commemorate being single and happy once again. Make some cool jewelry/accessories, a cute outfit... whatever screams "I'm so over that idiot" to the world  Smiley

actually I saw the subversive crosstitch book today, makes me wish I was into crostitch so I could make those things (eat shit and die ... mwa hahahaha)

I remember reading a thrifty book ages ago (don't ask me title etc) but the best way to make a 'home made' punching bag is to get a pillowcase and pack it tightly with wads of fabric, then apparantly you hang it up somewhere and beat the shit out of it.. I definitely second your idea about making pillows of his ugly mug and leaving them places... try cafes. also save money and see if you can get them screen printed by a firend.. god knows you don't want to spend money in anyway shape or form on him.

congrats for ditching the rat bastard! hello free nights and catching up with your friends!!!

I have a wist!
So I up and decided to do the whole blog thing...

I do personal swaps!

if you're feeling "giving" you could always make him a boxed gift...
"Life in a box"
  • dictionary and thesaurus: so he wouldn't have to demand others rephrase things down to his (stupid) level.
  • A watch and datebook: so he wouldn't stand others up anymore
  • A mirror: so he could check it before he started ragging on others for doing the same crap he's done repeatedly to them.
  • a brain: so he could use all of the above
  • Elevator shoes. Or high heeled shoes. or stilts.(You can make nice stilts out of tin cans... Cheesy) So he doesn't have to whine about how short he is on the physical plane (he's got plenty of shortcomings on the personality level...)
alas, I can think of no representative replacements for the other shortcomings of his personality, namely empathy, caring, and a personality. Well... perhaps a boxed set of Jane Austen's works, in hopes of instilling those qualities and making him understand what's likeable about English as a major?

Or you could just take the money and buy yourself new shoes and a new dress, and find yourself a fun rebound fling!

My god, I want an exboyfriend just so I make this to send the arse!

Good luck with whatever you do, and most of all have fun! Wink

I saw something cool on a website... You take some clay and mold it into the shape of a person lying on their back... Then poke holes in it, let it harden, and voila! A voodoo doll toothpick holder!  Grin

I dunno, maybe I'm feeling a little too zen this morning, but a voodoo doll seems like putting way to much of your energy into hating this creep. 

I'd focus on something that expresses good riddance, or happy independence

I love the "life in a box" idea. I also like the idea of tossing the doll to the cats, cause then he's not your problem any more, he's the cats' problem.  If you don't have cats, even better, give the doll to a friend's cat. 

Do something that celebrates life without him.  I'm sure there's something that you really love to do, but didn't do when you were with him because he didn't like it.  Go do it, and take your friends with you.

Make yourself a T-shirt with your break up date on the front and "Thank God that's over!" on the back. Wear to parties. Be happy.

There's always something good.
