1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / 70's room... I need ideas! on: August 31, 2005 09:11:23 PM
Ok, so I just gave my room a much needed cleaning... and my parents said if I cleaned my room (a "real" cleaning and not just a 'moving things from one corner to the next' as they call it) I could redecorate. I'm not sure of the budget but I don't think its too tight. I'm a cheapskate anyway lol. But anyway, I love the 70's, so what better than to have my room decked out like a 70's timewarp? I've been watching The 70's House on MTV for some ideas but none seemed logically possible for  me (or maybe I'm just not looking good enough) Undecided  Oh yeah, I'm planning on getting a futon and getting rid of my full sized bed that takes up pretty much half my room. I'm open to any ideas!

Edit: Oh yes, I forgot to add if any of you guys had ideas for a little "sewing center" in my room. I tote my ewing machine back and forth from the dining area because my room was always too dirty to sew in but now that it's clean and I actually have space to move around I can sew in there. I have no desks in my room, though, but I plan on getting one. Any suggestions on tables and storage space?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shirred Tube Dress :) My first project on: August 24, 2005 02:14:56 PM
This is my first project ever... besides taking in a t-shirt.  Embarrassed Anyway, I really love these shirred dresses by Cool Change: http://www.playhouseclothing.com/store/cchwhtdress.html

But there is no way on earth I'm gonna pay $140 for something that looked so easy to make just because Jessica Simpson was caught wearing it. Soooo... I bought some cheapy cotton fabric at Joann for $2 a yard and got to experimenting. Thanks to mickncrispy's tutorial and a little patience, I made this dress.

It looks a little muu muu-ish w/o the belt.



Here it is belted. I gotta wear a tank top underneath it 'cause my hoo-hoo's are too big for me to go bra-less  Undecided

I look like Laura Ingall's black twin with the boots on and this fabric lol, but I think it came out good for a first try. I'm gonna buy rayon (that's the fabric the real Cool Change dresses are made of) and try again.  Grin

Edit: I had to edit the link to the tutorial I used. Here it is: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=49544.0
3  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Any idea how to make this Marc by MJ dress? on: August 23, 2005 03:12:58 PM
I reaallllly love this Marc Jacobs dress Sad Except I have no moolah to pay for it and they don't make it in my size, I don't think lol (I'm not a size 0, 2, 4, or 6)  Undecided Here are some pics of it:

I haven't seen the back yet, but I'm assuming its not extravagant. Do you guys have absolutely any idea of how I can go about making this? I'm relatively new to sewing so this is a challenge  Lips sealed but I'm ready to take it on  Wink Do you know what material it looks like it's made out of, too?

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / How to make a magazine? on: November 17, 2004 09:34:48 PM
*sigh*
My English teacher assigned my class a project today. I have to make a magazine (yep, the glossy kind that's printed on 11x17 paper and folded in half.). The problem is: I have no clue where to start!  Huh Could any of you super zine makers (or anyone that's really experienced w/ paper crafts) help me? How can I make a good magazine? Would I use Microsoft Publisher or Microsoft Word? Also, since my printer isn't big enough to print on 11x17 paper, how would I go about doing that? Would Kinko's be able to do that for me? Thanks in advance for anyone who gives me even the slightest bit of help.  Smiley

I was at Hot Topic earlier today and I saw these packs of lined school paper (8 1/2" x 11") with pictures of Invader Zim printed on the top right hand corner. They were 10 bucks though!  Shocked Does anyone know a way for me print pictures onto my own paper? Thanks in advance.  Smiley
