1  UNITED STATES / North Carolina / Durham meet-up, seriously. on: January 29, 2011 01:57:34 PM
I want to meet some craftsters in Durham with whom to do crazy fun crafty things, to meet up and drink coffee or beer while knitting (or whatever) and chatting, to go on field trips to local shops, and to learn new crafts and make ridiculous craft mistakes together. Anyone interested?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Messenger bag! (lots of pictures) on: March 20, 2010 02:05:40 PM
I made this messenger bag as a Christmas/Anniversary present for my boyfriend. I used the amazing tutorial by dishwasher: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=301612.0

I stenciled a Maori spiral on the front with fabric paint and a handmade stencil.








Here's an action shot:


Thanks for looking!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Celtic Knot Countertop on: March 19, 2010 08:44:28 AM
We put a dishwasher into an empty space in the kitchen, and we needed a useable surface on top of it.  My boyfriend made a table to go over it out of some thick plywood. It needed to be coated anyway, so why not make it look awesome?



I don't have a before picture showing the bare wood, but here it is with just primer, ready to be painted:


Here it is partly painted:


Thanks for looking!
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Double pointed needles to trade on: March 14, 2009 01:07:19 PM
I hope this is the right place to post this.

I just bought a complete set of dpn's and I now have a few extra sets. I'd like to trade them out - I'll take supplies for knitting, sewing, or beading; yarn; or little crafts. Whatever you're willing to trade for them. I have a set of four metal size 3's, four metal size 5's, and five bamboo size 7's.
5  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Corsetry Swap on: January 26, 2009 07:59:29 AM
How about a swap where you make a corset for your partner, in the style of their preference (victorian, steampunk, renaissance, sexy, gothic, etc...)?

Swap packages could also perhaps include a small accessory to go with the corset, like jewelry, a coin purse, a garter, etc, and something the partner could use in making another corset, like a bit of fabric, a charm, or a nice ribbon.

Any other ideas?
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Kushiel's Legacy on: December 29, 2008 04:51:53 PM
Could there possibly be enough interest here in this amazing series by Jaqueline Carey to do a swap based on it? I know a few people mentioned them in some of the book-themed swaps. Just putting the idea out there...

I'm thinking shirts with Phedre's marque on the back, decorated masquerade masks, scarves in Courcel or Shahrizai colors, etc. etc. (And making it 18 and up could open up all kinds of craft ideas!)
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Knitted Beholder on: December 17, 2008 08:07:08 AM
I made this for the RPG: Dice not Mice swap that just finished, and I am so proud of it I wanted to post it here as well.





The eye stalks have wire in them for bendiness, and there is a loop on top so it can be hung up to hover.
To give credit where it is due, for the body I used Edmund the Owl: http://stitchesoffaith.blogspot.com/search/label/Edmund%20the%20Owl.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My aviator cap on: September 16, 2008 10:36:36 AM
The outside is some fake leather I found at wal-mart, and the inside is flannel I had left over from making pajama pants. I used the tutorial on DeviantArt:
http://cristophine.deviantart.com/art/Aviator-Cap-Tutorial-84150949
(Whoever cristophine is, she is a hero!)








Now all I need is some goggles....
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Bones on: September 09, 2008 12:59:39 PM
Anyone experienced with working with animal bone?
I bought some coyote knucklebones and teeth at a flea market, with the holes already drilled in them so they could be strung, but I stupidly forgot to ask if they were coated, or should be coated, in any way. I'm wondering if there's something I should coat them with to make sure they don't get brittle and break. They feel pretty smooth right now, and not porous, so does that mean they're already coated?

Thanks!
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Steampunk spyglass? on: August 10, 2008 01:02:51 PM
I'm working on a steampunk costume, and I would love to make a little spyglass to hang from my belt. It doesn't have to work or telescope, I just want a tube that looks like it could open out. I've thought about using plastic bottles or cardboard tubes, but I can't think of any way to give it the right shape, and be smooth. Any ideas?
