1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / making your own slingshot organizer! on: May 25, 2007 12:02:07 PM
So i recently fell in love with the slingshot planner/organizer, shown here:

And heres a link to the makers website:
http://slingshot.tao.ca/organizer.php

A slingshot is a anarchist, diy organizer founded on the principles of fighting capitalism and supporting a do it yourself attitude. The whole thing is filled with hand written notes and dates and is completely amazing. I love it. But I thought of this recently, that it is very hard to find them online, and the stores that sell them are few a far between. I also would love the idea of making on myself, with my artwork and my interests lining the pages. Im in numerous on campus activist groups, on being sds and I thought of how amazing it would be to have our schools dates and our organizations dates as well. I would blow a fuse.

So bookbinders.if I wanted to make a couple of these, what are my strategies? Kinkos? Photo copier? How the in hay do you do that style of binding? By hand? Machine? Are they are good websites where you can send your stuff and they print them for you?

Thanks all for the help.
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Applique Tooth Ache Patch on backpack on: March 10, 2007 05:19:04 PM
Soo, there has been lots of applique going on in my house as of late, (see my roomates new teeshirt:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=157393.0
So we sat out on our backyard swing on this beautiful cool day in florida and sewed our little hearts out. I make this tooth-ache patch with light blue felt, dark brown, tan felt, and red floss.
He has a little adhesive bandage on his toothy crown because he ate too many sweeties.

i hope you enjoy.

4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / x-men vinyl wallet - lots of errors :(need help, uber-pictures! on: January 06, 2005 08:39:41 PM
well, well lets see, ive been so inspired by all thses packaging tape wallets and diffrent wallets that they sell on diffrent websites. I had a super strong desire to make some. I started with making the tape wallet from the tutorial here...http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9299.0...(also i added some pictures of the one i made at the end of the tutorial thread) but the next endevor was when i bought some clear plastic vinyl and i got from wal-mart and i was intent on sewing it toghter with various pictures that i have lying around the house. here are some pics of how they turned out.......the crappy part is that my sewing machine or my sewing machine knowledge is a**. (i actually know next to nothing about sewing machines) but i tried it and in the close up you can see how the thread on one side loops up and isn't tight...i tried to adjust the tension but it didnt work....oh well...the other problem is the vinyl sucks apparently....(at least the type i got). it is so sticky (stuck together) that its basically impossible to put cards in the slots and money and stuff....i was wondering if anyone could suggest any good alternatives. thanks and on with the pix....

now here is where all the stitches are all looped and crapped up...


5  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / sorry it's another completed kittyville on: December 23, 2004 09:08:20 PM
hi friends  I just finished my first kittyville for a christmas present. The problem is its really huge becuase i made the biggest mistake in the world and used two yarn held together and it was such a tight, hard thing to knit. But anyway here it is with my lovely roommate modeling it....if u want more pix u can see my LJ.
