1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / fabric sketchbook cover with pocket on: March 17, 2009 11:19:57 AM
I wanted to make a fabric cover for a small sketch book and it turned into this:

back cover: (it looks a bit strange with the needles behind it)

front, closed with button:

front with pencil in pocket:

It was made while improvising, without tutorial, only using the sketch book to measure. It has a pocket for a pen or pencil so it's easy to take anywhere.
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / anarcha-feminist flag on: October 19, 2008 08:01:37 AM
i've done some waving with this one already on demos:

it's completely hand-sewn, i didn't have a decent sewing-machine yet when i made it.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / guitar pick buttons on: October 19, 2008 07:50:14 AM
i've seen ear rings made of guitar picks (plectrums) but i don't wear ear rings so that why i used them for buttons/badges (and also to play guitar):

these are all a bit anarcha-queer-feminist themed
4  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / embroidered graffiti on: October 19, 2008 07:30:07 AM
I'm calling these embroidered graffiti because I picture them hanging on walls outdoors, sort of like art actions...

6  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / DIY day in Belgium on: October 19, 2008 06:33:24 AM

some friends and me are putting together a DIY day. it's called "buy nothing, make something" and it takes place on November 15th in Hasselt, Belgium. that's 2 weeks before "buy nothing day", an international anti-consumerist action day.
so we're going to do several workshops on the DIY day, like recycling clothes, making wooden sculptures, self-publishing, etc. you can find some more info here: http://rgcollectief.110mb.com/diydag.html (in Dutch) and there will be updates when the program is confirmed.

maybe see you there?
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / menstruation cloth pads tutorial on: October 19, 2008 06:25:03 AM
I like that there's so much interest in sewing pads here!

Here is a tutorial I made a little while ago:

i hope it's a bit clear...
The measurements are in centimeters and probably could be altered, depending on your underwear and all...

I'm mostly using pads made from bath cloth fabric now (store bought  Embarrassed ) because they don't leak easily. they don't have any "protective" layer and don't need it. i use thinner self-made cotton fabric pads for low flow days. i usually rinse them after use, then machine wash. it's easy, you don't have to worry about running to the store to buy new pads.
i just need to make a wet bag now...
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / felt keychains on: October 01, 2007 06:18:54 AM

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / riot dolls on: September 30, 2007 04:47:55 AM
here are some dolls i made. they are not entirely finished yet. they are crocheted with felt faces and fabric or crocheted dresses for clothing. i'm working on a few more dolls at the moment. they are meant to be exhibited along with some drawings in a doll art tour project I'm going to do with 2 friends.
the little animal dolls are finger puppets.
