2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Re: I've figured out the best way to stencil EVER. A must read. (tutorial and pics) on: June 18, 2005 08:25:34 PM
I love the way your stencil came out on the first shirt, would you care to share it?
Here is the picture I used for my stencil, I printed it onto a full page of paper and did a cut out from there...

You can adjust the contrast to a higher definition if needed.
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Re: Little Stuffies, Bunny, Cat, Bear... on: April 28, 2005 10:28:04 PM
Okay here is the original pattern:

I of course altered it to be more in my style. I know its in Japanese, but as long as you know how to sew it shouldn't be hard to figure out. If you guys need more intructions let me know...

As for me, I'm gonna sew a couple more right now!

I think the dimensions in these two pictures are not exactly the same.  My bodies on the animals keep coming out a lot smaller in proportion to the heads.  I was wondering if you could post the ISBN # of the books these patterns came from, I'd like to buy a copy but live nowhere near a Japanes Center unfortunatley ):  .....thanks
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: First attempt at chainmaille on: April 28, 2005 10:04:53 PM
Great job on your first attempts.  Try taking the chainmail and connecting it into a large tube, it makes a great necklace, I used to sell them for $450 wholesale.  Check out Rio Grande Catalog if you are looking for jewelry accessories (shanks, etc) and Hoover & Strong is a great source for sterling wire.  Keep up the good work!
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Making glasses from beer bottles on: April 28, 2005 09:51:28 PM
you could probably use a sanding bit on a dremel, my boyfriend makes beer bottle incense burners and uses the dremel to make holes in the bottle
What kind of bit does he use?
6  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing help on: April 28, 2005 09:46:40 PM
I suggest you take a class at a  community college, a continuing education class, because there are no grades and no pressure.  I tried teaching myself to sew, and that was fine, but as soon as I went to a class it was so much clearer having someone experienced helping, it just goes a lot faster than staring at instrucions by yourself that sometimes look like they are written in a foreign language.

I remembered the magazine that gave me the idea, its this great magazine called "family handyman".  I recently picked up a copy of it and found more great ideas, highly recommend!!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Sewing Table Tutorial on: April 23, 2005 07:01:39 PM
That is a really good idea! I want to do something like that in my room. The only thing I'm confused about is where the legs go when it folds up?
The legs fold into the center under the table, so the bottoms of the legs are under the middle of the table.  I will try to post a picture, it folds down very easily.

yeah buddy, good idea!
do the legs store well under there?
it looks like it's flat against the wall. just can't tell form pictures.
oh well, it looks awsome!
have to keep that in mind when i set up my sewing area at home this summer.
another thing to look for on my garage saling trips, i think i'll spend the whole month of may on garage sale quests.
Yes, its lays flat against the wall and the door can open all the way when the table is closed, though when the table is up I am pretty much locked into my art/craft room, but I don't mind!  Because the table is postitioned above the floor trim it can lay flat.  Have fun at your garage sales!
