    Crafty ladies, my daughter is starting to become more interested in sewing and crafts with fabric and felt. Can anyone recommend some kind of craft she could do? She has been home for fall break all week with her sister, and she has been looking up tutorials on how to sew stuffed animals and Barbie furniture (!!) on Youtube, and has already made several items. I don't sew. I'm not very knowledgable about crafts, except I like making friendship bracelets with embroidery thread. Can anyone give me some ideas to pass on to her?

    Looking at you, Hannah, Courtney, and Alma. (or whoever else!)

    what is her skill level? i remember pillows being the first thing i tried to make. also clothes! things like simple skirts & dresses. it's a good way to get her used to patterns too.

    Some really cute ideas here. Especially the Pumpkin People, just in time for Halloween/Thanksgiving.

    Thanks for the ideas! Her skill level is very basic, but she has made some small pillows sewing with thread. She is very determined and much sharper about these things than her mommy.

    The first things we made were mufflers (like wool woven scarfs) and pillows. A simple skirt with an elastic waistband. Loose pull-over sleeveless shirts. Doing clothing that needs a zipper is much more difficult, as would be setting in sleeves. If you go to a fabric store, they should be able to help you pick a beginner's pattern or two.

    Some of the other projects I was given when I was young were those loop potholders (kind of pointless, but you learn to weave), small hand-sewing tasks like sewing a button or fixing a hem that is coming undone. I wish I'd learned to knit when I was younger too. That turned out to be pretty easy, at least until you start using patterns. It's really easy to just make a scarf.

    Is cross-stitch really passe? My mom used to do it, so I tried it for a while, and I think that's the main reason my hand sewing is so precise and even. (You get used to making even stitches). It's easy to do since the fabric has tiny holes to guide where you stitch, and it's easier to read the patterns than doing embroidery.

    Edit: I tend to think of cross stitch as being stupid homey samplers, but people do some cool things with it. I remember my mom once did a family "portrait" that had our extended family on both sides (like 50+ people) and you could actually easily pick everyone out.

    Also people who are really good do stuff like this in cross stitch...

    Yea, I was just looking at patterns, there is some really cool stuff now. I'm not sure what I'd do with the finished pieces though. Maybe hanging them like you'd hang a canvas (mounted, unframed)?

    That looks like footwear the eyeless, long-tongued female monsters would wear in Hellraiser 5.

    We were out to dinner last month and saw a woman quickly cross the street in super high, heel-less strappy dress sandals, so her entire foot/ankle wasn't even enclosed. We had no freakin' idea how she did it.


    And god, those things are ugly. I don't know what would possess someone to buy a pair.

    Amy, you like Hellraiser. Therefore, the assumption could be made that you find the boots attractive.

    I think Heidi's on the right track with knitting and/or crocheting - those are pretty good (and portable) kid-friendly crafts and they're popular enough that there's a ton of information available and the materials are really easy to find. It'd also set her up to make nice holiday gifts and whatnot, which is a sort of liberating thing for a kid to be able to do.

    Edit - sorry, didn't read this thoroughly enough and thought you wanted suggestions in line with what she was doing, not directly related to it. I actually would recommend you guys find a good fiber store and take a needle-felting class. That way she's still working with a material she knows but is getting to experience a new side of it. Plus, needle felted stuff is fucking cute. Really fucking cute.

    Hannah, thank you for the ideas. I found a beginner's book online for needle felting. Maybe I will get that next paycheck.

    In other news, I made an appointment to dye my hair purple. I'm really scared and excited, and I should probably look into buying some hats to wear to work.

    I think Lady Gaga made these things popular. Sort of reminds me of having to walk on grass in stilettos.

    I learned to sew when I was a kid, Amy. I started out with things like bags/purses, bandana clothes, sock animals, holiday decorations, etc. I even took a job in middle-school hand-sewing pieces for baby blankets (pain in the ass!)

    Weird body question. This morning and on Sunday morning, I had some painful cramps that lasted maybe an hour at most. I thought my period was starting — it's scheduled to come, I think. Comes every two months because of my birth control regimen. But it didn't.

    I'm gonna assume this is normal. Of course, the Internet will always tell you you either have caner on you're pregnant; right now, they're saying cramps and no period means I'm carrying spawn. But, this should be impossible; I take my birth control every day and have never skipped a pill. Every pill gets taken. So, should I think it's something else (cysts?) or it's totally chill. (I don't have any other symptoms typical of what the Internet says "being pregnant" brings. I've never been preggers, so I dunno if those are true.)

    I doubt just having cramping would indicate anything unless you had some other symptoms. With birth control you are altering your hormones and it can cause weird things at times.

    i have no idea what causes irregular periods.

    i know a whole fucking lot about cramping though. ask your doctor about pelvic floor dysfunction. i'm starting physical therapy for that tomorrow. even after three surgeries and complete removal of endometriosis (another possibility), i still have cramping that will hopefully be cured with therapy. cysts are extremely common and they come and go. they become a concern when they are either really large or they are a "chocolate" cyst that bursts (endometriosis). also, this is probably unlikely given that your cramping isn't excruciatingly constant, but a twisted ovary is also a possibility.

    i bought some adorable teal aldo pumps today to go with a teal wiggle tahari dress i got on clearance. pumped.

    I don't think having painful cramps once is something to worry much about -- if it continues, then perhaps you should check with your doctor.

    hey girls! I have a wedding to go to on Saturday, and I have the hardest time dressing for them. I feel like I am either over dressed or under dressed. Do you guys have any suggestions on what would be appropriate?

    Be dressier than office attire, but not so dressy as to be confused with anyone in the wedding party. I'd suggest a nice suit or dress, depending on the weather- tailored and structured is a good way to go.

    It's difficult to make a suggestion without knowing the circumstances of the wedding... is it a day time or night time wedding, what is the setting, did they give any clues about attire on the invite or save the date?

    they didn't and that is the frustrating part. The wedding is early afternoon with the reception into the night time. I don't even know if it is inside or outside. I was thinking a nice dress? The rules always confuse me. You don't want to wear white, or black, but not loud colors right? What does that really leave?

    Loud colors are fine- bright colors are celebratory so no reason not to wear them. You can wear black too, but I'd punch it up with a colored bag or accessories. I'd call the bride/groom if I were you and ask about the indoor/ outdoor thing.
