1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Fabric you can write on over and over again? on: August 29, 2009 01:25:40 PM
Hello all! I am curious in creating labels out of fabric. I was wondering if there is any fabric out there that kind of acts like a wipe board? Where you can write, then erase, and re-write? Vinyl perhaps? Any suggestions? Or is there such a thing?  Grin

Thank you for any and all suggestions!
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Christmas Vacation Swap? on: July 28, 2009 03:14:57 AM
This probably wouldn't be appropriate for a few more months, but what does everyone think of a National Lampoons Christmas Vacation swap. My fiance and I were watching it tonight and it's such a cult classic and definitely a tradition in my home every holiday.
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Copyright confusion on: July 19, 2009 03:15:48 AM
Hello, all! Perhaps I could get your advice as I am very confused on how copyright works. I've read through the information on different craft selling sites regarding copyright and I can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for.

I've noticed there's an on-line shop that's very eco-conscious and sells items made from refurbed glass of liquor bottles, which is awesome. I'm all about being eco-friendly. The finished products clearly have the liquor brand's logo visible and still in tact. I don't understand how something like that is not in violation of copyright laws? I'm not trying to get this shop in trouble, not at all. I'm just really confused about how copyright works.

I had thought of an idea to refurb the plastic cups from Starbucks and it would include the logo on it. I didn't think I could sell it tho because it would be in violation of their copyright. Am I wrong about this?

Any help would definitely be appreciative.

Thanks!
Shannon
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Dress made of candy wrappers on: June 25, 2009 12:36:01 PM
There's a wearable art curation coming up in a few months and I have this idea I really want to submit. It's basically a dress, probably will be two separate pieces - skirt and bustier - made from candy wrappers. The wrappers are like tin foil. I've never done anything like this and I'm curious if anyone has suggestions of how to put the wrappers together. They're quite fragile, sometimes tearing when unwrapping the chocolates inside. It's been suggested to me to use contact paper, which might be a good choice since I'm hoping to make the skirt reversible - both sides of the wrappers have some cool designs. So I need to make the wrappers stronger and find a way to bring them together. If I use contact paper it'll gum up my needle on my machine pretty good.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Standing Collar or Banded Collar on: June 25, 2009 04:35:42 AM
Hello,

I'm curious if anyone can tell me the difference between a standing collar and a banded collar? Or perhaps they are the same thing, but called by different names? If there's a difference, I'm guessing it's pretty minimal since they look extremely similar. If anyone has any insight to this, it'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Elvis Placemats on: June 09, 2009 12:48:41 PM
Hi! I made these placemats for my aunt for Christmas who LOVES Elvis.



I used the panel fabric for the design and then framed it with black cotton (I think it was broadcloth I used). I also interfaced one side of the fabric before stitching it all together.

What do you guys think? This is my first project posting on crafster. Smiley
