I just taught myself how to sew on a sewing machine a few months ago and I love it. Lately, Ive been making fleece fingerless gloves and trying to sell them to buy my school books. Im always looking for quick and easy crafting ideas, mainly so I can give them away as gifts.

Re: Win Seasons 1 & 2 of Teach Yourself to Sew on DVD

How cool! I'd love to watch these videos seeing as I never really learned how to sew properly. The exciting thing is that my sister just bought herself a sewing machine too and sharing the experience with her is so amazing. I'd love to share these with her too. :)

Re: Crafts I Want to Punch in the Face

Oh my gosh! You are so spot on with your list. I think the one that peeves me the most is the unrealistic requests by friends/family. I had made a bunch of fingerless gloves to sell during Christmas (and I was giving some away as gifts too) and my sister not only takes a pair for herself, but also tell her boyfriend to come over and choose a pair. AND NEVER PAID ME! Then she has the gall to tell me the week after that she lost one of them, while she's chuckling. As if she got them from the 99cent store and they didn't cost or matter that much. *Fuming*

Ok, I'm done :) God - that felt good!

Re: Crafting on a Budget

You can also join your local freecycle group and request the items you need. I've scored crochet needles and baskets. There are so many people trying to get rid of things but can't bring themselves to throw them away and would rather give away to people who actually need or will use the items (as well they should!).

How awesome!!! I'm going to make one and simply add some buttons. Thanks for the great idea!
