So... I got sick of paying like 40$ for plugs and never finding anything I really liked at stores. I made myself a few spacers, talons, whatever you want to call them... and I got a lot of good feedback on them. This art show craft fair thingy is coming up, and it's only 30$ to get a spot in it.
This is what I've done in just a few days. I think Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, after work. I still have to glaze them (seal them) and measure them to get what size they are. I'm just eyeballing some of them from what I have, 0g and a 12g, and the rest I'm just making and will measure later. I just wanted to share. Some of them have numbers next to them because I made them specifically for someone to choose from, and those are the ones I think will be the right gauge, the 12g.
Ok, so I'm taking on a rather ambitious Halloween costume this year. This is actually what I wanted to be last year, kinda, but didn't follow through. Anyway, I want to be the Borg Queen. I have tons of old car parts, tubes, wires, etc that I can use for her head thing... But I need your help. Here are a few pics, if you have ANY suggestions as to how I can achieve this, they would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking a bald cap, and I have tubing for it, but the outfit... I don't know. HALP! Thanks in advance! I basically just want some brainstorming from more crafty people than myself.
So, I just got my sewing machine from my mom's and made a purse that actually turned out pretty decent for my first try. At the same time that I bought the skirt to make the purse, I bought another skirt to make a top out of. Here's the skirt:
And this is sort of what I'd like to make:
The material is stretchy, like a t-shirt sort of.. it's cotton I believe (the tag is gone, used clothing...) so I know it's going to be hard.. I don't want to stretch the material as I'm sewing and make it all puckery along the edges... so, how do I do that? Can someone point me in the direction of an easy pattern. The back doesn't have to have that opening, just thought it would be neat. It might just be easier to not have it... Any tips on how to do this would be GREATLY appreciated!
We found a perfectly ugly good cork board in the garbage. It had some marks on it, a stain.. you know the drill. Anyway, I wanted it up, but not ugly, so I took a kitchen plate, a cd, a coaster, and a magazine and traced shapes then painted!
I bought this dress about two years ago thinking I would use it for Halloween this year, but never was able to think of anything really sweet to be with it.
It's this nasty seafoam green colour, which I could dye.. and it's floor length, which I would change, and there are like, triangles of sheer in front and back.. hopefully you can tell what I mean in the pictures.
EDIT: If anyone has any pictures to throw into their suggestions, that would be cool too.
