Ok. I admit. Im really addicted to patches. Patches for bands, ideas, or just images. I sew them on my vest, my pants, my hoodies, my backpack....You get the idea. And a lot of us know how to make them! Screen printing, stencils, freezer paper, freehanded painting, embroidery...We know how to get it done!
So what if we all had a little patch-addicts anon, and made each other some sweet patches?
I think it would be cool if we kept it small, say, 10-15 people, and we made a patch for each person? I know that's a lot, but we might be able to make the same design twice even? That way we also get a broad variety of patches as well.
If you think that that's a bad idea and everyone should just have one partner, thats cool too. I just thought it might be more fun this way.
hey guys! so, i just graduated high school and am attending the community college this fall. part of staying at home though is that i wont have a little dorm room to call my home. wait. says who? so now i want to turn my bedroom into a dorm room of my own. step one, the 21 year old ABC wallpaper. ive done my best to cover this with posters, but it still doesnt do the trick. ive asked if i can just paint over, but mom says no. also, ill probably be funding this project... what are some cheap ways to almost completely cover walls without paint, and without spending a fortune? id much appreciate your ideas! im sure ill have many questions to come, but this is task number one! t.i.a, craftsters!
I KNOW there has to be a ridiculously easy way of doing this, and Im sure I could figure it out with lots of stress and profanity, but I figured I'd see if any of you lovely people had already been through that
Thats when I knew I had to have one. I saved my money(thinking i would need $25-30 in supplies, but only spending $8.32) and set out towards Hobby Lobby for the felt and polyfil that would surely be a fix to my need of a robot just like Ro-Bert. I grabbed my materials and in a frenzy drove home and spent 8 hours cutting and sewing and giggling. And this is what I came up with.
I was in love. So I took him on a trip.
And he met some new friends.
Who have lots of fun posing his mouth and tongue to give him his one little personality.
So now he spends lots of time traveling around with me and having his adventures documented to Facebook.
Ok, Craftsters! I need your help. The wonderful woman who lets me babysit her 8 and 10 year old is due with her third in mid April! She's going to be a beautiful little girl! So as a craftster, I'm very excited about the new challenge of baby clothes. What are some basic essentials that an April baby will need? Obviously not heavy clothes(We live in central Illinois), but seeing as I'm not a mom, I really don't know what babies need clothes-wise, besides diapers and something to cover them.
Oh, I also have a limited budget, so free pattern links would be terrific!
I knew one day I would make my prom dress. I just knew it. So when Trav asked me and we decided to wear Converse, I had to make a dress to match my shoes! Duh! This one photo explains our relationship better than anything.
I had to hand sew the hem. I nearly killed someone and was finishing it the night before, of course. Just back stitch.
My date(s)! (They're brothers, and I love them) This one makes me look not as slim as I am.
The pattern was a deconstructed white party dress that originally had 14 pieces of fabric. My version had 39. Made with bright red crepeback satin, a black sheer made my the Devil himself, and a lace. I hadn't even put on my make up or take off my jeans when we realized the sheer was pulling away from the seams in the bust, as visible in picture number 2. It did it in another spot over the course of the night, but the lace makes it less noticeable, and I'm planning on wearing it for my piano recital. C;
So I've been wanting a motorcycle jacket for a long time. And then when I saw how attractive one looked on Shia LeBoeuf's charachter, Mudd, in Indiana Jones, I decided it was imperitive that I have one. So I was catching up on all teh new Burdastyle patters and came across Larissa. I'm in love.
I spent this morning with a bunch of boyscouts ripping the covers off of hardcover books for recycling. Some of the covers were just to adorable to throw away, coz on older books, they put the design right on the hard cover!
So now I have this adorable cover with a circus on the front, and I was wanting to give it some new pages and maybe give to the boyfriend's mother since she loves antiques.
Any advice as to how to go about filling the cover> I was thinking maybe coptic stitching some signatures together, then gluing to the inside, but I have NO IDEA how to coptic stitch AND i dont even know if thats a good idea! HELP!
I cant link to images, but google it and you'll see. My boyfriend is A, a big Boondock fan( we both are) and B, Catholic. So even if it's just the cross, I'd like to try to replicate the rosary from the film. Here's the problem. The cross is wood, but the ring is metal! How do I get them to stay together? I'm guessing Loc-Tite isnt my best bet. Any guesses, guys? Really, anything is helpful!
