I have a t-shirt quilt I want to make, does that count? lol.  I've been staring at the pile of shirts for a year now, and I would really love to have the craft bin back that they are taking up... but so far I haven't been too motivated.

Would you guys recommend cutting them all the same sizes or cutting to the size of the design and trying to match it up like tetris? 
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Nursery that isn't cutesy and doesn't suck. on: January 21, 2010 07:51:22 PM
I was thinking about nursery decor not too long ago, not sure why because I'm not pregnant or even trying. Guess my clock is ticking?  One idea I thought might be really great is peacock themed room (probably more for a girl) using bright jewel toned colors. It was be so colorful and fun as a childs room but not typical and cutesy.

If you like greens and neutrals, and since green is pretty gender neutral maybe you could go with a "tree of life" theme.  You could add in animals but they don't have to be cutesy. I had a friend who cut out birds from those sheets of craft foam, I don't know if you know what I'm taking about, and she took tiny nails and put them up all over her walls.  You could even use double sided tape I'm sure.  But you could make up a trunk, leaves, birds, owls, rabbits, deer, squirrels, frogs, insects, whatever and do a large scene/motif over one whole wall. It'll make a really interesting wall without painting.

I love the size of these! I never got into ATCs because I used to be to busy. Inches just seemed so small to me. Recently I've wanted to try altered journaling, so maybe these could be a good jump start. These also strike me as a great size to be bookmarks. And I could totally see me leaving them in returned library books. How neat.

I probably won't make one for every day of this month since I'm jumping in kinda late, but I'm going to give these a shot.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: Anyone up for a garb-along? SCA, Rennie, LARP, costume geeks? on: May 08, 2009 08:53:15 AM
Aw, I would totally be up for this! I've got stuff I put down that needs to be finished. A tunic for him and a cotehardie for me. But I think it's all in storage Sad I'm moving and probably won't be able to drag it out until mid June.

For your white silk I could totally picture a skirt front elaborately embroidered, if your into that.  Or a head covering of some kind, but you have too much yardage for that maybe.

So many pretty things, Never! enough time.

I made something very very similar to this from a large t-shirt (I don't think it was XL, but it may have been).  
Here's a pic   http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v651/nymnotte/P1010548.jpg

I ripped all the thread from the sleeves to seperate them from the body and I took out the neckband as well. In a move of laziness I used the neckband as a waistband and attached the sleeves as bodice peices. The hems on the sleeves became the neckline.  I overlapped some in the front because it's a very plunging neckline and I wish I had overlapped more sometimes. Overall I really love it, but I only wear it around the house because I never put finishing touches on it to make it nice enough for public. The tshirt material doesn't really need hemmed but I wish I hadn't used the neckband as a waist, it's a bit rough and tight.

I don't know of a tutorial but I think it's really easy that you could piece one together this way and then maybe use it as a pattern to make adjustments.  Hope that helps some...

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Fiance in the Air Force... on: May 28, 2008 09:39:35 PM
Yay for the Air Force! Kinda...

I'm going to be in the same situation soon, my fiance is in DEP and will probably leave around Aug. or Sept.  I am already stockpiling ideas for letters and things to send him.  I'll have BMT and tech school to go through and then we'll still be apart until I finish school.

I'm so nervous about being away from him and it's really depresses me sometimes, but at the same time he and I are excited.  It's going to be such an adventure for me to be an Air Force wife. And it's a great experience and career choice for him.

I love love love the underwear idea! and the photo booth style pictures, I'm a photography major.

We want to to buy cheap-ish camera/video cameras that record on SD cards.  Then we can just mail SD cards back and forth with videos, sound and pics.  Saves us trying to upload and email large video files.  Also SD cards are getting kinda cheap now and I think if you mail them in the plastic cases that some of them come with, and maybe a little bit of tissue paper padding or bubblewrap, you can just stick it in a regular envelope and it shouldn't get smashed or broken.

I just thought it was great when I found this thread though!! goodluck.
7  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / New Newbie :) on: November 08, 2007 06:29:34 PM
Lol.  I'm delurking now to become a newbie.  I love all the lovely stuff people create on this site. It's always an inspiration.  I'm a full time college student and a part time crafter when I find a few hours to work with.  I was hoping that by joining and finding a few new friends on the site that I could get focused and make my minimal crafting time as productive as possible.

I like paint and paper, alittle digital scrapbooking, I'm a beginner knitter and I'm improving my sewing skills currently.  But my biggest thing is photography. Smiley
