21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Apron from men's shirt on: April 22, 2005 08:27:50 AM
Hi everyone!
This is my first post, though I've been lurking for a while. I finally took some pictures of projects I've been working on, so I thought I'd share them. I'm new to sewing -- had a sewing machine for years, but it wasn't until I found craftster that I was inspired to use it!

This is an apron that I made for my husband. I made it out of a men's button-down shirt that I got at a thrift store. I modeled it after an apron that I borrowed from our local food co-op; it's a lot like the ones they wear at HomeDepot, but a bit longer. Three pockets at the bottom and a little loop to tie a dishtowel to. Let me know what you think!

I might have answered my own question. I've also been doing google searches about this, and I found the following link:

where someone asked basically the same question as me (but worded it so much better!), and apparently there is a yahoo group about hippie sewing: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hippiesewing/

I haven't joined yet, but I'm headed there as soon as I finish this post.

But! Please don't let this deter anyone from putting up tutorials and tips here!

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hippie apron top pattern or tutorial? on: April 20, 2005 07:33:25 AM
I have a couple of hippie apron tops (the backless kind that tie in the back, made out of simple cotton calico) that I bought at a concert last summer. I LOVE them and I would like to make some more, but as a novice at sewing (I started to write novice sewer, but that sounded like something gross :-) ), I can't seem to figure out how. Does anyone have any tips for me? A tutorial perhaps? Or links to other forums/boards that might help (though craftster is my favorite forum on the whole wide internet, for sure! you are all so talented!!!)

Anyway, can someone, anyone, help me get started?


24  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How to paint/decorate glass jar lids? on: April 05, 2005 08:38:52 AM
This is my first craftster post, but I've been lurking for a few weeks now. Best crafting site ever; you all are so inspiring!
So here's my question: How can I decorate the metal lids of glass jars I have around the house (from spaghetti sauce, jams, pickles, etc.) so that they look nice and I can reuse them for other kitchen goods (flour, lentils, rice, etc.) I want to do something to make the lids look good but still allow them to be washed, used over and over again. I thought about fabric, but that won't allow me to wash the lids...Are there any paints that will not dull the finish of the lids and allow me to wash them?
Any suggestions would be great! Once I figure out how to tackle the lids, I plan to get some glass etching cream and stencil the name of the product onto the glass jar itself (flour, sugar, rice, etc.)
