1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / gift for brother going to Iraq and friend's 16th b-day on: October 19, 2005 06:08:33 PM
My brother is goign to be shipped out to Iraq in early november. And he gets a week of leave beforehand. He won't be home for thanksgiving so we're having that early. And I'd kind of like to be able to give him a little present before he goes. Originally I wanted to knit him a hat or something, but considering he won't be in CO anymore I don't think that works. He's kind of the stereotypical males, he likes cars, beer, women. But He also likes indie rock music, book, intellectual discussion. I want to keep in touch with him and I might give him some stationary and stamps, but I don't that to be all. Any ideas for something practical but not too much of a reminder? Of course once I get that done, I'll need to start on his christmas and birthday presents. (they're four days apart!)

So my friend turned 16 recently and I have no idea what to make for her. If she was anyone else I'd probably make her a journal or deacoupage something for her, but she takes so much time to make her own collages I don't know if i would be takeing somethign away from her. She is majorally into music, it's her life. She also writes, and is into all types of self-expressions, she's the kind of rage against the machine punk teen. But she goes to a catholic school (it's kind of funny). I know it might be hard to help me from this info but please try? Whatever I'm making for her it's going along with a couple of cds I'm burning for her, so maybe a music theme? Argh...

In advance, thank you all. This really menas a lot to me.
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Attaching horns on: July 31, 2005 01:08:39 PM
I made myself some horns out of polymer clay. But I wasn't too sure of how to attach them, so i just stuck some bobby pins in their bottoms. but when the were done I discovered that those won't hold them to my head. Does anyone have any suggestions of how to hold them on to my head without being too noticeable?



3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / three skirts on: July 31, 2005 01:04:05 PM
I made two of these skirts and revamped the plaid one a while ago.

http://www.craftster.org/pictures/showgallery.php?ppuser=26913&cat=500 At my member gallery there are many pictures of me modeling my skirts.
They all fit well and I used the tutorial here http://perso.dromadaire.com/tirididi/themini.html to make the orange one and the flowery one.
The plaid one I jsut kinda cut off some of the fabric, hemmed it and then tacked the pockets. What'd you think?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sleeves on: June 14, 2005 06:25:30 PM
I have a polo shirt I like, but I want to make sleeves to wear under it. I have some striped fabric that I like, but not too much. The was wondering if anyone had any suggestion on how to amke teh sleeves. the shirt is a tee that goes to about my mid-upper arm. And I would like it to be kind of fitted... Would a little... shrugs like thing work better than jsut sleeves? Woud I need elastic?
