Fabric is a great resource! Be sure to save your old clothes. You never know when you'll be struck with a good idea. Here are some great ways to reuse your fabric:
Make new clothes. Make something that doesn't require a lot of fabric, such as a tube top or halter top. Combine fabrics for a patchwork garment
Make fabric accessories. Make headbands, hair ties, bracelets, necklaces or belts. Stitch a long strip of fabric together and turn it inside out. Braid strips of fabric.
Make winter accessories. Make a hat, scarf and mittens from an old sweater.
Make a miniskirt. Cut off the top of a long t-shirt. Cut horizontally just below the sleeves. Turn the raw edge over twice to form a waistband. Insert elastic or use a ribbon as a drawstring.
Make patches. Add colorful patches to your blue jeans or jean miniskirt. Add an extra pocket to the inside of your coat.
Make toys. Make a set of doll clothes or stuffed animals. Make bean bag chairs for the kids.
Cover a special book. If fabric has sentimental value, use it to cover a scrap book, journal or photo album.
Make a picture frame. Layer cardboard into the shape of a frame. Cover each piece with fabric as it's being glued and assembled.
Cover a lampshade. Pleat and glue fabric onto a lampshade. Glue a row of decorative ribbon to the top and bottom of the shade to cover the raw edges of the fabric. Add a row of dangling, sparkling beads to the lower edge of the shade.
Cover a corkboard. Use a large piece of fabric to cover the front and sides of a corkboard. Secure the fabric in place with glue at the back of the board. Add notes and messages to the board with a stick pin or common pin.
Make a quilt for your bed. Add a pretty eyelet bedskirt and matching shams.
Make new curtains. Make a simple valance for the top of a window. Add a small drawn curtain, to the lower part of the window, made with a different fabric.
Wrap small presents. Cut fabric into a circle or square with pinking shears to create a cute zig zag edge. Gather all sides of the fabric around your gift and secure it with a ribbon. This creates a beautiful package for soaps, sachet and other small items.
Create a rectangular gift bag. Cut fabric into a long, wide strip. Fold the strip in half. Stitch the side seams. Use pinking shears to trim the top of the bag. Secure the top of the bag with a ribbon. This creates a beautiful package for a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers.
Make a big cushion for your dog. Use fabric from flannel shirts and stuff the cushion with scrap fabric.
Use fabric for cleaning. Make plenty of dust cloths. The edges of the fabric do not need to be finished. Cut frayed edges as needed.

After reading aconites discussion I started doing something with my husband. We rotate the drink, but daily get together and talk. It is amazing how sitting down for a few minutes everynight together can bring you closer to your spouse. Also, I realized how little I knew about my husband because we really weren't talking.

Download Link --> http://www.giveawayoftheday.com
as a vista user, this newer photo gallery is a VAST improvement over the standard Vista version in my opinion. Brings backs the great XP image resizer button and many more features including picture straightener that you scan in crooked!
NOTE: Simply check off movie maker as the option you wish to download, it will install the complete picture/movie package and not all the other junk like messenger, etc. that you may not want.
you do not have to make live.com your default search engine, do watch your check buttons carefully.
So far, I'm very impressed and pleased in this newer version. I use Vista premium on my PC. Feedback is encouraged by the techies out there.
