1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: small but fun ikea hack! on: November 09, 2008 02:50:53 PM
Whoa..  Shocked I LOVE this! For some reason I've been really into the ouija graphic. I had a ouija board recently, but no one wanted to play with it besides me, so I lost it. Since then I've been looking for some ouija board fabric. No luck yet. But even my desktop and IM icon are ouija related! So, yeah, love your clock!  Smiley

That's hilarious! My boyfriend and I listen to the show religiously. I agree with TheMistressT, I'm sure they'd get a kick out of it.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Where the Wild Things Are Costumes WIP - lots of pictures! on: October 07, 2008 03:44:46 PM
Wow, such a cool costume!  Grin They are SO well done too. I also can't wait to see them in action! 

Also, did you know Spike Jonze is releasing a Where the Wild Things Are movie in 2009? I am really looking forward to that, I'm quite a fan of his work. Forest Whitaker will be Wild Thing. Here's the IMDB link!

Holy crap, this is awesome!  Shocked

Neckface is really big in the skateboard community, which is how I know of him. Just the other day my boyfriend was at work at a skatepark here in town and it's right beside a train track and a train went by with a Neckface tag and everyone was going crazy about it.  Down here in NC we don't see stuff like that often, so it was really cool.  But this embroidery is even cooler!!

Aww that sucks theres only a demo out, I downloaded it though to see how it works. I wish it had something to where i could upload a picture I already drew and make a pattern from that. I find it kinda difficult to draw on the computer. Maybe when the actual program comes out it will have that option.
Yeah, that would be really cool. I don't know how to go about seeing when it will be available as a whole program, but I hope soon. I find it hard to draw on the computer too, I've been considering buying one of those tablets to draw with lately. Might be worth the investment.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Re: Plushie Program on: August 25, 2008 02:56:21 PM
Ok, so, I googled the program and found the website made for it, and it has a free demo program you can download.  Here's the link to the website:

http://www.den.rcast.u-tokyo.ac.jp/~yuki/plushie/index-e.html

Scroll down to the bottom and you'll see a zip file for the demo.  At first I couldn't figure out how to open it, and all I saw was a .bat file which I hadn't seen before. I expressed concern over the safety of the download to my boyfriend and he told me not to open the .bat if I didn't trust the site. Then I gave in because I couldn't find an exe file, and explained to him what was going on and he was like "oh yeah, go ahead and open the .bat file" so I did and the program opened.  I don't know why I'm really paranoid about viruses and stuff. The computer I'm now could easily be sacrificed as it holds no important data. (Cut to a week from now when I've been hacked by Japanese plushie making college students, haha)

Anyway, It's just a demo, so I don't know how much it does and I just drew a circle real quick to make sure it worked like the video, and it did. But I don't know how to do anything else. It comes with a manual I believe in the folder, so I'll probably have to read through that before knowing how to work it entirely. But it looks cool! It might have a time limit to how long you can use it and since it's only a demo it probably doesn't do much more than demonstrate how the program works.  I really hope a full version is available soon.

Omg thats so cool and just what im looking for, do you know where to buy/ download the program?
I know it looks awesome, doesn't it?!  Unfortunately I don't know much about it.  When I found that video I was too busy to look into it more.  I will try and look around to see if that program is available, or if there is another one like it around for home/personal use. It seems like such a useful program, I hope it wouldn't be too insanely expensive (though most cool programs are  Roll Eyes )  I'll let you know if I find anything more about it. Maybe someone else will pop in with more info too.

Has anyone else seen this? I was just googling for some tips on how to make a custom plush doll and came across this video.  It looks really cool! Check it out:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbQWxL-_8LU

I believe I read it was designed in Tokyo and it basically just lets you draw (crude) 2D shapes and it turns it into a 3D model while creating a pattern for you to print and follow. Looks really awesome, especially for someone like me who is a beginner and not very good at being artistic. I don't know what the status of it is, I would research it but I'm a little pressed for time, so I will have to do that later. But it'd be cool if it came out for personal use sometime soon (or is already).  Let me know what you guys think, or if you've seen this before or know of something similar that is available. 
9  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / Re: Craftster Chat (sorry if I'm doing it wrong) on: August 24, 2008 04:03:38 AM
Weird that you resurrected this thread yesterday. I just came here now looking to see if this had been discussed before.  I'm a big time lurker, but I'm really new to Craftster and crafting in general.  So I don't know about the history here yet. I'm trying to learn about all the rules and stuff and hoping to lurk and post for a long time! I am officially addicted.  But I was wondering if admin was against having a "General Discussion" type board, or chat room (I hadn't thought of that actually) since this was a site primarily about crafting. I didn't know if people went elsewhere to socialize about everyday stuff.  But seeing as how there was at one point a chat room, I'm now wondering what happened to it?  Did it not work out? Since I have only posted a few times and am so new to crafting I thought it'd be nice to be able to just get to know people. So any insight on why there isn't a general discussion board, or why the craftster chat isn't around anymore would be greatly appreciated.  Regardless of if it happens, I loooove this website and have already blown a decent amount of cash on crafting supplies, so I'm sure I'll be around for quite some time.  Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed some light!  Smiley
10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Ouija Board Fabric? on: August 14, 2008 04:35:05 PM
So I've been digging around on Google, and searching through the Halloween sections of the fabric sites listed here, but I have come up empty handed.  With Halloween coming up, I was hoping that if someone spots some Ouija Board fabric they could let me know here.  Don't really have any plans for it yet, but I'd love to find some. Thanks for reading!
