2601  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Amazing fabric...need reconstruct ideas (img) on: March 10, 2008 01:33:58 PM
Brand new Craftster here, and already asking questions!

I bought this skirt on eBay about 2 years ago.  I fell in love with the fabric immediately and sniped it at midnight for a total cost of less than $15.  It is a size 18 woven cotton circle skirt (with a few random ill-sewn sequins scattered about and falling off in many places).  It fits fine, but a woven circle skirt is not a great look on a plus size gal with my measurements (size 18-22 hourglass).  It adds inches to my already ample backside.  I cannot bear to part with the material, so I am looking for some reconstruct ideas that will transform these works of art into a new work of art!

My sewing skills are improving, but I am ideally looking for something that a novice can construct.  I have successfully worked with patterns in the past, but it has been many years (I am 32).

2602  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Imperfect dildos and butt plugs on: March 09, 2008 10:43:23 PM
I am new here, so this post is new to me.  I swear I am still wiping the tears of laughter from my eyes!
1: I am completely jealous - I want your friend's job, if for no other reason than the comic relief provided whenever the question "so where are you working?" gets asked (and of course for the freebies!).
2: I am sure there are dozens of brilliantly fun craft ideas, but the one non-crafty thing that pops in my head is to just randomly and anonymously mail one out to a stranger - pick a name and address from the phone book and send it on its way.  Sure, you would not get to see the reaction, but you would KNOW there will be one.  I know, completely childish (and I have not been a kid for MANY years), but I still have a bit of an evil humour streak to me.

Such a cute idea!  My soon-to-be nine year old niece is obsessed with the show Extreme Makeover Home Edition, so we will be surprising her with an "extreme makeover bedroom edition" for her birthday in June.  I am definitely going to use this idea as part of the decor!

I love it I love it I love it !
Without even watching the vid I recognized the clock, but then, I WAS quite the SS junkie when I was little.
I definitely agree with cherrybabies about SS then vs. now.

Now I am inspired to make a vintage Sesame Street creation of my own - the Typewriter Guy!
