kerravonsen: Crafty: a medly of beads (craft)
[personal profile] kerravonsen
Y'all know I like craft. So I get these project ideas, and I buy stuff for them. But I haven't been so great at putting my purchases away, of late. It is only in the last week or two that I have finally finished sorting out and putting away maille rings which I purchased (goes and looks) more than a year ago. I've been pecking away at the chaos bit by bit.

Today I started looking through the pile of stuff that I'd put on the bed in the spare room when I cleared the desk in my study when I was setting up my laptop as a server back in January. Really miscellaneous stuff, including bags with craft-supply purchases from Lincraft and from el-cheapo places like the Reject Shop and random "$2" stores. Now, some of them would have been "oh, this could be useful in the future, I'll get it now", but some of them I am sure I bought with specific projects in mind, but now, for the life of me, I cannot remember what those projects were.

What did I want to do with these things?

* A bag of random scraps of leather.
* Four 15cm metal zips - I have a vague idea that it was important that they were metal zips and not plastic, but I still can't remember why.
* Black ribbed elastic.
* Two 6mm-thick blue foam sheets. (That's thicker than usual for foam sheets)
* 5mm-wide satin ribbon in different shades of green; the fact that they were bought in a specific set of colours implies to me that I had something in mind for them, but perhaps it was just a case of "ooh, pretty!"

Ribbed elastic is good for garters and things where you need the elastic to lie flat.

If you knit socks, one's mind turns to garters - or it did until I discovered shirring elastic....

An interesting assortment of oddments, a patchwork leather purse or handbag perhaps?

For some reason, I'm thinking maybe some of it was for something steampunk-related? I think the metal-vs.-plastic zips makes me think that.

Blue foam sounds like a Dalek project.

Random scraps of leather--I immediately thought, "Well, a leather quilt, of course." :D
