So, I've been promising my little cousins monster bags for nearly two years now. I'm finally ready to make them and have red and pink fur. But I also need either orange, purple, yellow, or navy blue fur for the third girl. I can't find it anywhere! My crappy walmart has like one aisle or crafts/sewing stuff now and joanns only has black, red, and white. And I live in a small town with any other majors stores being at least 2 1/2 hours away Are there any places online that sell it reasonable prices? I found one but it was over $20 for a yard! I didn't pay anyway near that for the ones I have!
Ok, I'm sounding stupid here, but I think I want to dress as a witch for Halloween. I've never been one before. Been everything from rainbow brite to a clown to a hooker even (when I was like 11 - what was my mom thinking!), but I've never been anything scarrier thana zombie for a friends halloween haunted yard/house thingy. I don't even want to be a scary witch ( I have a pretty religious family and wouldn't want to completely irritate them, plus I have a 6 year old son). Every year since my son was born I have dressed in rennaissance dress mostly nice dresses, but a few times as the wench look too and I just want something a little different this year. What do witches wear? Is there a pattern/tutorial somewhere? I've looked online and there are a few I like, but I don't want to buy them, I want to make one. Here are a few I like, just don't know how to go about making them or if they are even a good costume, right on track or completly out there and weird. Also, I'm about 40-ish pounds overweight and live wear it can get super cold on Halloween so something warm is needed.
Has anyone here ever made a diabetic supply case? My 10 year old cousin was just diagnosed with diabetes and she has a case to carry her supplies in, but my mom said she'd like something different. I'd like to make her one for christmas, but don't really know where to start.
Does any onoe have any ideas on how to hide a wallpaper border going around the entire room at the top of the walls? We're renting and can't paint or take it down. It's way too girly for me, roses, pink and other flowers and all. And even though I'm a girl, it's just too much. Plus it clashes with our bedding that is mostly dark navy blue with some yellow and white in it. I need really cheap ideas since I pretty much have no or little money to put into it. Plus, I need something that won't ruin the border or the walls. Any ideas?
I have no clue what to get my mom for her birthday. Her birthday is in a few days - August 18 !! She will be 50 . I can't believe I forgot about it. She really likes playingplaystation and psp and all that, and I suppose I could buy here a game or movie for those, but it just doesn't seem like a very good gift for her 50th. I thought about making her a quillow because she "stole" the one I made for my grandpa, but I'm not sure I would have enough time. She also likes painting and stuff like that. She has very bad arthritis. I honestly don't know what other stuff she likes.
Hi all, I love taking pics of my little guy and plan to get one I took the other day printed and put it in a nice fram and give it to my husband for fathers day, but I need help picking which version to use. They are all the same pic, just different.
All black & white ( not sure why it's spotty on here)
I saw a really pretty purse on Ebay that someone had made and I fell in love with it. But, alas, it has already gone over what I could pay for it and still has 5 days left. I'm cheap AND broke unfortunetly. Unless I can sell something it's just not in my future So, I did what I always try to do, make my own. It didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but I think I'll make another and make it bigger and change the shape a little.
How would you bring in one of those shirts that nurses wear to make it smaller? My brother-in-laws girfriend wants me to make it smaller, but not mess with the sleeves, plus there is a pocket there on the side too. I'm clueless about this, but if I don't try I'll never hear the end of it.
Where do you buy the slide adjusters to make adjustable straps for purses? We only have a walmart and a joanns here and neither one has them. They have the backpack type ones, but not the plain slide ones. Is there a place to buy them online? Or is there another way to make straps adjustable without them?
