1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Completed Projects / Franken-spinning wheel! on: June 07, 2012 08:06:40 PM
With the better part of a day and some junk from my garage I built this:



Here's a close up of the spindle set up:



It actually works pretty well, though it has to be repaired a lot.

Ingredients:

Bike wheel
Wastebasket
Melted record
Plastic box
Ceramic wheel
Meat thermometer
Particle board
Nails
Duck tape

Anyone could make something like this, would anyone be interested if I wrote up a little guide to making a junk spinning wheel?

I love handkerchiefs, so I made some for my favorite people.

For one of my best friends

I had one for myself as well, but I left if at the headquarters of a campaign I'm working on.

Thanks for all the information.
I lost those drawings a long time ago sadly.
I'm starting to really want to hand sew something, if I do I'll certainly come back to you!

That's extremely amazing. I love the edging and also everything. The funny thing is, it looks just like drawings I did after reading a comic book version of Beowulf. Yours is much better, hand sewing something like that seems an awesome feat to me. what stitch did you use? And what needle and thread?

These are beautiful! It's so cool that you can make something like that. And did you say they were looking for a home?
7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Vegan Ren Faire Shoes? on: May 11, 2012 10:13:13 PM
So I'm making my ren faire costume about five months early, and it's going well, but I need shoes. It seems that many people wear moccasins or gladiator type sandals, however they tend to all be leather. I'm having a hard time finding something vegan that looks right, so I've set myself the challenge of making some kind of sandal. Has anyone made a gladiator type sandal or something similar and could give me advice?

    Look! I made one too! Very fun, be warned though, this eats fabric like nobody's business! It is super heavy, I made the waistband tie, then wrap around my waist and tie again. it keeps it up pretty well.

Sorry these have to be links, apparently you have to post ten times before you can post a picture.
It took about a week for me to sew this I think. It's got a lot of fabric from fabric stores, but also from thrift stores and old shirts, and a lot of fabric with sentimental value. I haven't hemmed it because I like it the way it is, and honestly, I'm really lazy. Really,this skirt is hyperbolic! It would be a million miles of hemming! I might finish it with bias tape, but don't hold your breath.

And I know that top is a bit too skimpy. It was super hot here.
