Re: Book Giveaway: 4 How to Felt Books much fun! I'd love to add one of these books to my library. Thanks for the great give-away!

Re: Designing a Vinyl Clutch

I didn't have any trouble following the directions, especially with the pictures. I like the size of the clutch and especially like the re-use of the vinyl. Maybe you could also use an old vinyl raincoat, or a heavy duty vinyl tablecloth for this project. If you enlarged the design to be large enough to hold documents, this could also be a nice portfolio - maybe using vinyl wallpaper, which would be more lightweigh - that stuff's indestructible, it seems.

Re: How to Make a Kitty Hat (for Humans)

Too cute! An organization here collects caps and mittens for neighborhood children in the winter. What a fun way to use all those sweaters I got sick of this winter and bagged up for donation. I'll make kitty hats instead for the kids! Ooohhh, a new fun project. Thanks so much!

Re: How to Make a Felt Baby Toy with a Crinkly, Crackly Recycled Surprise

Just wondering...during laundering, could you put this in the dryer, with the plastic inside? I know line drying would be best, but what if?? I make toys for Chinese orphanages and have made baby balls from fabric scraps and placed the sturdy-type cat balls with bells or a round pellet inside (not the dollar store cheap cat balls). The baby would need to get through the toy, and then break through the plastic ball to get at the bell. I'd like to try the plastic wrapper idea for crackle, but I know the toys there get washed on a regular basis. Anyone tried drying one of these yet? I love this idea!

Re: How to Make Heart Sachet Sets

Very cute! My 7 year old sewed potholders and an apron this weekend in my sewing room and this will be a great introduction to piecing for her She can make this cute project for her teachers for Valentine's Day. Thanks for the great idea!

Re: How to Make a Watch-Piece Ring

My son collects all things metal and he probably has parts just like this. Hmmmm.....I'll have to drop a mighty hint in his direction. If you don't have a small dish of beads, I imagine a small cup full of rice will work too.

Re: Make a Tyvek Shopper Tutorial

This bag just makes me laugh! I love it! It's imaginative and fun. Gotta find me some Tyvek....

Re: How To Sew a Classic T-shirt Neckband

That does look easy! I have been thinking of making up a batch of toddler tees to send to a Chinese orphanage but was stumped about where to find the narrow ribbing. Thanks for showing this technique. I have a ton of tee fabric which can now turn out great and for a good cause! Yippee!

Re: How to Make Fabric Envelopes

I can't wait to make one of these. OK, maybe two. My daughters have small games for their portable Nintendo games and these would be great little carriers to keep the games safe. Sounds like an easy project they can help make, also. Thanks for the cute project.

Re: How to Mix Up Linen Waters

This sounds like so much fun! Kinda sounds like a flavored vodka, but I'll try to remember just to spray it! Fragrance sprays are so expensive and sometimes you just want a nice little scent when you enter your kitchen or bedroom. Can't wait to try this!
