1  Magnets I made? in Discussion and Questions by DancinInTheDark on: December 23, 2015 05:39:39 PM
Hey everyone,
I made some bottle cap magnets last summer and the magnets keep leaving bits of magnet residue on the fridge. It wipes off with no problem, but I'm not sure why they are doing this. I used the little round button magnets from Walmart's craft section, if that helps. I was wondering if there is anything I can do to prevent the residue from getting on the fridge. I live in an apartment and don't want the residue to keep getting on their fridge.  Undecided I have a magnetic calendar I made too but it's fine since I used ceramic magnets from Amazon on it. Thanks! Sorry if this was confusing!  Wink

2  DIY: Patriotic Flower Pin (somewhat pic heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DancinInTheDark on: June 22, 2015 01:20:08 PM
Hey everyone! Haven't been on here in forever but I have a new DIY to share with you. Here it is! Smiley
Also, I want to apologize for the pictures. I took them with my iPod touch so they might look a little wonky.

What you do:

First, grab your materials.

T-shirt scraps in red, white, and blue
Flattened bottle cap
Fleece scraps
Craft knife
Needle and thread
Tacky Glue
Krazy Glue
"1" circle punch
Flower petal pattern
Pin backs
Extra fine marker

1. Grab your bottle cap and flatten it. It should look like this. I like to use pliers and just squish the rim down.

2. Score it with your knife. This makes it easier for the glue to stick.

3. Glue the fleece on your cap. The fleece makes the middle of your flower more dimensional.

4. Cut it out.

5. Flip it fleece side down and glue a scrap of T-shirt on top.

6. Cut around the scrap, creating a circle.

7. Cut little slits all around your circle. This makes tabs you can fold over and glue down.

8. Glue the tabs down.

9. Grab your pattern and your red shirt. Draw around it. I do this twice to make a long enough piece for the flower.

10. Pin your petals together and cut them out.

11. Stagger your two pieces and sew along the bottom using a running stitch.

12. Gently pull on the thread. This gathers your flower petals so it looks more like a flower. Sew around the back, making sure it stays flat.

13. Grab your white T-shirt and cut two strips off. Stretch them out to make yarn. Make a loop and test its size against your flower.

14. Make enough loops to go around your flower, tacking them together with thread. When you have enough loops, glue them in the middle of the flower and glue the center down on top of them. Let dry.

15. Cut three circles out and glue together. This is the back of your pin.

16. Glue a scrap piece over the circles and let dry. Cut it out.

17. Cut slits again and glue down. 

18. Glue the back on your pin. Let dry.

19. Glue a pin back on it and rock your pin! Cheesy

3  T-Shirt Blanket! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DancinInTheDark on: July 29, 2014 09:27:50 PM
I wasn't sure if this should go under Home Sweet Home or somewhere else so I decided to put it here. I made this over July 4th weekend with my new sewing machine.  Grin I had a bunch of t-shirts that were not really wearable anymore and a fleece blanket that needed a new lease on life. So here is what I wound up with. I'm pretty proud of it! Sorry it's blurry. LOL I'll get some better pictures soon.

Oh snap, it's also upside down...  Embarrassed Whoops!

4  But great ideas take time! ;) in Completed Projects by DancinInTheDark on: October 21, 2011 12:33:38 AM
So. I had this bag of bottlecaps sitting about for goodness knows how long. Last weekend I was listening to my radio show and I got this great idea. I'm currently making a purse that reflects my hippie personality. Why not make buttons for said purse? So I did! Here's one of them! Sorry about the cruddy iPod picture, guys. Wink A tutorial is on the way and so are better pictures!  Cheesy Enjoy!

7  Why, yes, it's Midna from Twilight Princess... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by DancinInTheDark on: January 21, 2011 12:09:13 PM
Hey guys!

I thought I'd show Midna off here. She's in the Poppet-Along thread too.  Wink I know, she needs shoes and other clothes. Haha.

Front view:

I know she looks weird here, but it's just the camera angle.

Back view.

8  What Do You Get When You Mix.. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DancinInTheDark on: January 08, 2011 12:04:33 PM
Vintage lace, vintage denim, and clear vinyl from sheet bags? This camera bag!
 Grin I don't know WHAT happened though-that lace is red in real life, not orange.. Thanks a LOT, Photobucket. Tongue

9  Sorry, Link. I can't give credit... in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by DancinInTheDark on: December 20, 2010 08:16:41 AM
To Heroes of Time who don't have wallets. Come back when you have your wallet and sufficient Rupees. Wink Haha, I couldn't resist. Anywho, I got this idea in my head to make a bag for my camera that looks like the wallet Link uses in Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask. Wink

My version:

Here's the poppet I made with the Elenore tutorialEr, I mean, pattern. Wink Her name's Midna.  Cheesy

Front view.

Back view. I know she looks drunk here, but she isn't. It's just the angle. Isn't she lovely? I'm proud of her.  Cheesy The dress was made with a pattern I just threw together. She is in dire need of more clothes though, as winter is coming. The material I used for her was this pretty but old sheet we had lying about. I used some of that in my quilt too. I know her ears are a little funky too, but that is okay.
