21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Flip Flop Swap Round 2? on: July 16, 2005 06:13:31 PM
i saw the flip flop swap gallery and loveeeeed it. too bad i missed it  Sad. so i was thinking all of you lovely craftsters would like to do another flip flop swap. because i adore flip flops, and i'm sure all of you are addicted too  Smiley.

i couldn't organize, as i haven't been in any organized swaps .. though i have swapped items with other users.

but yeah, you could buy some cheap fllip-flops and decorate them to your partners liking!

if we did i 1 or two week signup we could have the send-out date by mid-august and still have some wear for the summer and for school while its still hot!!
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / okay, this isn't exactly craft related, but i still need help ... on: July 13, 2005 05:23:36 PM
my mom was on ebay the other day, and found an autographed bernie carbo hat. her favorite player. i bid on it for her, and she told me to go up to $16. so i got to that and was outbid. she told me to go up to $18, then i was outbid again. she told me to bid again, and i said, are you sure? she said yes, so i bid, but by then it was too alte, and i lost. i lost both times, there were two hats. and now i'm upset cause she really wanted the hat. and her 50th birthday is coming up, so i want to find a Red Sox autographed BErnie Carbo hat, but the only one on ebay is $60.00. any ideas where i can find another?
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / how to make a pattern from an existing pair of pants? on: July 08, 2005 04:35:05 PM
So I bought a few yards of $2.00 black corduroy at Wal-mart the other day to make a messenger bag. but then i fell in love with a bag at JCPenney and bought that instead. heh, so much for making one. soo then i was cleaning my room today and found a favorite pair of cords that i loveee but have a hole in the butt and the knee (the mice, i swear, jess!! Grin). so i want some new cords.

i have a pair of jeans that fit perfect, and i'd like to make a pattern with these, BUT, i don't want to rip them apart - i still want to be able to wear them. is there any way to make a pattern with my jeans to make some new cords? any advice is appreciated!!

thanks  Smiley!
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / This belt was made possible by d. (my amazing new bottlecap belt!) on: July 06, 2005 05:11:50 PM
sooo i made a black belt at school one day when i was bored. and i brought it home and i loved it but it was too plain. sooooo, d (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=24124) sent me a lot of AMAZING bottlecaps from Holland (i believe, lol), and i sent her some pretty beads. so i punched some holes in the bottle caps with a hammer and nail, and sewed them on a belt. it took me forever but i loveeeeeeeeee it so i don't care. i just won't ever make another. hah, just kidding  Grin.

here are some lovely pictures:

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink, black, a t-shirt, and quite a bit of time! on: June 07, 2005 05:07:40 PM
Yeah, so this started out as a square skirt. Just pink. But it was wicked short in places. So i put some other black square underneath, the long pieces showing where the short pink was. I didn't really like it. So I pinned up the corners and now it's uh, kind of a circle skirt? Just not really cut along the bottom as a circle. I wore it today, and got like 5242634795884256 compliments. They all asked where I got it, too.  Grin. That made me quite happy, as it was my 3rd project, and 1st without a pattern! I don't really know how long it took, I did the first version in about 20 minutes, but then I forgot about it and went back to it, and again, and again ... So yeah. Both fabrics are just plain cotton, and the waistband is an old black t-shirt. I love it Cheesy!

And here we go ..

The only problem I have with it is that when I go up o down the stairs I have to hold it down, or else it poofs up and you get to see my undies  Tongue.

27  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / free soda tabs/pop tops? on: May 15, 2005 02:30:14 PM

28  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / peasant skirt and sequiny shoes... HELP please on: May 10, 2005 01:17:52 PM
i was looking through the remnant bin at wal-mart the other day and came across some white gauze. it was two bucks so i bought it. there are 2 yards and 6 inches of it. i want to make a pesant skirt, like this one: http://www.delias.com/item.do?categoryID=450&itemID=44362&sizeFilter=&brandFilter=

but i'm not sure how to go about it, as i don't have a ruffler foot, nor am i about to buy one. if someone could get me a tutorial or explain how to do it, that would be great!

also, i LOVE these shoes: http://www.delias.com/item.do?categoryID=441&itemID=44266&sizeFilter=&brandFilter=

would i just get a cheap pair of flats and sew sequins or sequin trim to them? and how would i go about doing the ankle tie. help is very appreciated.

also any suggestions for a top to wear with this .. its so not my style .. i'm the t-shirt, jeans, checkered shoes kind of girl but i loveeee this outfit.

so yeah, tutorials would be appreciated, thanks so mcuh!! <3Lisa
29  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / i really don't think it's good for my sewing machine to be spitting out oil ... on: May 07, 2005 07:42:51 PM
yeah, so i was attempting to sew my neighbor a white pillow today. and whenever i would press the pedal, it make this clanking noise. so i was like, what the hell? i just kept going, and i noticed my thread was turning black, and i realized that couldnt be too good. so i stopped and was taking out the stitching, and my machine started to smell ucky. and ideas on what could be wrong?

thanks sooo much! <3 Lisa
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pink, polka dots and ruffles .. my second project and first skirt!! on: April 12, 2005 06:02:49 PM
so this was pretty easy, except the ruffles. i despise rounded seams! but it came out good in the end.  Cheesy.

 i got the fabric on sale at Jo-Ann's for about $7 a yard  Undecided, but it's pretty and silky, so it's good.

it took me less time to make than my pants, about 10 days .. probably about 6 hours or so. i had to take it out a bit in the hips, and it's still a tad snug, but it fits perfectly. it kind of angles down on the side too. elastic waist.

i used simplicity 5100.

i reallyyyy like it, and hopefully i will be making more. enjoy, and let me know what you think!!
