Using Patty Paper as Tracing Paper for Crafts
I was looking for some tracing paper in my art supplies to make tracings of quilt applique templates and other drawings to create some felt leaves for a project.
Trouble With Fray Check
I recently purchased some Fray Check for a project. I applied it according to the package directions and left it to dry. When I went back to start my project I was bummed to discover that it had caused the pen lines, from when I traced my templates, to run all over the fabric.
No More Frayed Bracelets
Every young girl loves friendship bracelets and we all know they always end up fraying and falling apart. To keep this from happening just simply grab a lighter, literally any type of lighter will work.
Embroidery Floss and Felt Color Code Chart
I do a lot of felt crafts that have stitched features. I had a hard time remembering what floss colors went best with the various felt colors. I made this color code chart that has a small sample of each felt color with its coordinating embroidery floss (and color number).
Finding the Center of a Circle
I recently posted the cat tree project. I selected a round base to use for it, but that made it a little harder to find the center than if it had been a square. I thought I would share a quick way to find the center of a circle.
Clear Hook for Hanging a Wreath
I prefer to hang my holiday wreaths on the inside of our front door. The door has a large window in the middle. I don't like the look of the over the door hangers so I decided to attach a clear Command Hook (holds 3 lbs.) to the glass. Now I can hang my wreaths and the hook is practically invisible.

Craft Ideas for Baby Bottles
If you have baby bottles that are not getting used anymore, you can repurpose them and the nipples for crafts. This is a guide about craft ideas for baby bottles.
Cutting Duplicate Paper Shapes
I do a lot of crafts at home. One of my problems is cutting out traced shapes and getting a messy table after working on it. Also it takes a lot of time when I trace and cut each, one at a time. This is especially true when you need hundreds of duplicates.
Finding Free Yarn
I love to crochet and am on a limited income. How can I get free yarn?
Finding Sources for Donated Yarn
I work for a non-profit organization and we are currently putting together an event for Earth Day on April 22nd. One of the crafts that we want to do calls for a lot of yarn. Due to our limited budget as a non-profit sector, I am in desperate need of donated yarn.
Using Decoupage Glue to Attach Jewelry to Glass
I'm doing a art project. I'd like to use decoupage glue to glue down a bunch of jewelry in a picture frame. If I were to pour the decoupage into the frame in layers, let it dry, and reapply layers until I've covered all the jewerly, would the glue dry clear onto the glass, or look weird from layering?
Selling Craft Magazines and Kits
I am currently clearing my mother's property. Due to dementia she has accumulated a great deal of craft magazines, most are un-opened in the cellophane wrapping with kits, etc. included. I am looking to sell them to raise funds for her continued care. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Using Mod Podge on Styrofoam
This is my first time using modge podge. I painted the mod podge onto my Stryofoam ball and sprinkled glitter on it. The whole color of the ball changed. Does the mod podge dry clear and the color that I had sprayed on the ball come thru? Any help would be appreciated as the craft store sells, but never teaches.
I would like to donate approximately 5 boxes 18x18x24 of fabric (all types, including: velvets, wool, some lace, silks, etc.) in the Salida, California area. The recipient would need to pick up. Any ideas who to contact?
