    Love your stuff.I need to be more practical with my crafts. Can you direct me to a site (hopefully you) who can show me how to alter pants into maternity pants. (the ones with a high, soft overbelly band. I have several surgeries still to come so need this type of "waist" that puts no pressure in my midriff area. Thank's for everything. I'm 73 and comfort is everything.

    creative textiles – you need not throw away your old laddered tights any more – recycle them – learn how to make bowls out of old tights!

    Oh my goodness, I couldn't figure out who this was (: So glad to hear from you. No, I never could get the tights to not curl immediatly, but this project has led me to other exciting projects! I started doing the same thing with strips of scrap denim & that was much easier for me to manipulate. Then, I had one of the bowls I had made sitting on a table & a woman approched me, commenting on it & told me she made bowls out of pine needles! And that is what I am currantly working on (: too much fun

    Im really struggling with this project, I'm o.k. coiling up the tights, my problem is when I go to make the round, it starts turning into a bowl immediatly. I'd like to make the base a little bigger, to make a little bit bigger bowl. Please, can you tell me where I'm going wrong, any help will be appreciated.I'm loving this so far, just can't get past making the tiny bowls! (:
