A seam ripper is a sure sign I must save and share this!
Sweetie, if you don't have a fabric shop near you, then you can use a search engine that rhymes with Poodle to look for places, or buy on the E Bay Ho or Am I Going To Space Place. X
Bikezac-type Shopping Bag for Cyclists
Wish I had the printer part. I'm old, so I just graduated from my Granny's hand-cranked Singer sewing machine (which I still have and love), to a Brother! I have Duct Tape, but pretty sure I can't really sell them as units. Still, lovely Instructable, sweetie!
Faux Limestone Block Wall
If it is going to be outside, like anything else, it will need a decent sealer. I'd go with a flat for the "grout" and Satin/SG for the rest, or the entire thing. I'd use at least two coats, apply 24 hours apart and use a brand like Minwax, Spar, etc, depending on the materials you've used in this treatment. JMNSHO.

I'm a retired Union Scenic Artist, with years of experience and even credit on several Major Motion films. I must say that this is a truly beautiful job. I love the subtle texture and colour shifts and that you understand that a natural look has a bit of "movement" in both the line, tone and such. Well done!

How to Make a Coloring Book
Easy Mold Using Hot Glue
Fantastic idea! I have a massive amount of glue sticks, as I bought a case, in a moment of madness...and I so don't have a load of money! This is such a great option; thanks!Just so you know, a friend of mine is a Master in casting, and even so, her casts will come out with flaws, such as little "positives", as well as the occasional hole. She makes very intricate pieces, an uses dental tools to remove excess, whereas I hit it with a wire brush...my clients aren't as discerning! With the holes, it's easy enough, until you get your mix/pour down, to fill with a bit of plaster, before painting. I voted for you. Best wishes.

And I checked out and hearted the FB jackets!
I love your instructable, as well as the product! I've been doing embellished jackets for a few months, and here are a couple of things I've learned, or stumbled upon. From my mistakes, mostly! I don't have a serger, so I use a zig-zag stitch. and if I'm too short of time/fabric (or lazy) to turn the edges, I use a fray check. Unless I'm aiming for a bit of a shabby look. Which happened, unintentionally, at first, as I use vintage and upcycled fabrics. And I'm learning on the fly!Also, one option to do the back panel, would be to use a water soluble stabiliser on the yoke, and side panels around the back centre one. Then trim out the centre panel, and sew the Skull/other to it, a la Alabama Chanin. You could use a monofilament/fishing line, to sew it on securely, then add fabric pa…

Denim Jacket Framed T-Shirt (JuxTeePosed Jacket)
Shock Absorber Stools
Janet’s Flight Cage
That is a great use of a plastic bottle and so pretty. One idea, that sprang to my tiny mind, was an option to the clay circles on the top, would be those glass beads, with flat bottoms, you can get in dollar and craft shops. A clear drying glue, such as Weldbond, would allow light to shine through. Depending on all sorts of things, such as the colour, or lack thereof, of either the bottle, or beads, the light source, be it from a bulb, sun, above, or below, or a watch battery/solar operated string of rice/fairy lights, this might become a night light, for your porch or bedroom.......wandering off to gather those items from around my insanely messy house....see you in a year, when I've made an example to share!

Tasty? Are you licking them as you're hugging them? Just checking, because right now, I'd like to come back as one of your chickens, but ending up as dinner isn't part of that picture!It's an incredibly beautiful piece, with the craft shining throughout. I love the humour and that you gave such a rich and detailed Instructable. I'm saving to buy a house and chickens may also be part of that future. So, even though you won't be hugging and tasting me; I can now dream of making one of these for my chicken pops.
20 Before and After Transformations
Unbind a Hardcover Book
Fantastic! I used to do book binding, but am looking at some old children's encyclopaedias my grandfather picked up from a flea market when he was young. And I'm fifty. Thought I could make some things with the charming illustrations, or sell some of the ephemera in them, to cover my vet bills...so taking them apart carefully would be important. They are in bad shape, but I love them and want to do right by them. Thank you.
Has anyone tried using water based caulk for this sort of thing?
Thanks! I used to weld for a Scene Shop that made stuff for cruise ships. Everything from stage trusses for lights to massive props (e.g. a "rock" that opened up to be a winged monster, whose mouth the dancers came out of!), to massive, curved stair cases, lit, with inch thick plexi treads....I haven't welded in ages and seriously miss it. So, I was brushing up, in case they'll let me stop by and play with their equipment on a couple of projects I have. Either way, I appreciate the great info and it should help lots of people. Cheers.
Amazingly beautiful and a lovely use of common items.
Plastic Lid and Straw Fractal Lamp
I love this and that you gave links in it, as well as in the comments, for people like me. I do a lot of work on my 1860's house, but was BANNED from electrical work, after replacing the jerry-rigged thermostat. Of course, I just did what the previous owner had done, instead of reading the instructions, which resulted in screams from my partner, a boiling hot house and gallons of equally hot water being discharged by the system. Not such a big deal, right?!Anyway, I have a bunch of skulls that this would be great to do, as currently they are not shown to their full glory and are tempting to the dogs, despite their good manners, which is unfair. For the people who were wondering about sourcing such items, I have an option to consider. I've been working on a low tech (aka cheap) way to…

For the people who were wondering about sourcing such items, I have an option to consider. I've been working on a low tech (aka cheap) way to cast a skull and have pictures of it up to a certain point. Guess I'd better pull it out of the Mega Pile of Ongoing Projects and finally finish it. I'll try and get to it this week and if I do, would you like a link to the Instructable?Thanks for your beautiful project and yes, kick in me arse to get going on my not so pretty, but hopefully useful one! Cheers.
Also, I can't give credit where it's due, but I did see something about using crayons on sandpaper and then flipping it over and heating onto clothing...If I remember, I'll let you know. Probably here, or the other time suck: Pinterest!
Sorry I took so long to answer, but I had shoulder surgery and couldn't use my left (dominant) hand for a while. By "drain", I meant the drain pipe you used on the top, which I presumed would also be holding a drip system.Of course, it probably wouldn't work well, as the heat on the metal might evaporate too much of the water. Anyway, I'm allowed to lift one pound in my left hand now, so in a few months...!Thanks for your kind response and all the best.
How to win Instructables contests.
Love it and understand why you are so modest, but I'm going to vote for this, definitely! I have voted on many, as I'm like that. One is too many and...you get the alcoholic trope.So, my question is, what on earth are those beads you used? I live in a bubble, which is pretty like your bottle, but seriously confusing at times! Ah, I scrolled down and now I am far wiser. I just was all excited and had to say something to you!One added note: Pastry requires being kept cool, so your pretty and cold rolling pin is far loftier than a purty thang! Thanks and I'm off to find a drunk.
Look at this great site for the fun and chemistry info! My eyes have been opened. Oh and you can get silly amounts of them online, just using the name Slippery arm provided below: Orbeez.
I love this and the bold statement cracked me up! I have no kids, but I have crayons in my studio and now I'm thinking.....Good reminder about the center of the letters, as well as the keeping track of your iron being on/off. Guess being a mother makes you super aware of the potential risk of unattended irons and we all need a reminder!Thanks and good luck. I'm voting for you.

Sorry I don't know how to highlight text....ooops! EXPLODING ROCKS!Um....Luddite giving up. Sigh. Thinks.....ExplodenopeGuess I'll be looking that up, when the shrimp's on the Barby!
Great idea and so timely! I'm usually broke, with leftover stuff like you and have been playing with making some sort of grill/bbq in my yard. Something about a National Holiday, where I know I'll be smelling good cooking all weekend has really lit the fire, personally. Pun sort of intended!I appreciate the simple instructions, great photos and safety advice about EXPLODING ROCKS. That's the sort of thing I'm likely to find out the hard way and may explain a fair amount of the scars and surgeries I've had...! Giving you a vote and may even fiddle around and put something similar together in time for the 4th. Thanks!
Raised Bed Garden From Roofing Sheet Metal
I love this. I see a fair amount of metal troughs that are used for food/water on farms being used as planters; you've taken the Industrial Chic/Repourposed to a whole new level!Looking at the first image, I had vaguely wondered if the drain was not only a safety/critter blocker function, but if it served as a form of drip watering sort of system. That's my brain working overtime!You have my admiration, my vote and my hope I can make one soon for my urban yard. Cheers!
