1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / harry potter hogwarts crest from a cross stitch pattern on: May 26, 2009 10:46:20 PM
i havent posted here in ages but since this thing took so long i thought i'd show off a bit :-D

the pattern is from by little mojo the only difference is that since its on black i had to fill in the spaces with green so the outlines would show up. its in a 16x20 frame w/out the glass for the time being.

hope you guys like it Smiley
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / binding when you have no folios? on: May 26, 2008 07:33:15 PM
so my cheap-o copy of the lord of the rings (its all 3 books in one tradeback) pretty much fell apart. ive bound books before so i figured i'd just rip the paper cover off and re-bind it w/a pretty cover. well...all the folios in the book are either tearing super quickly since the paper is thin and the glue used is thick, or they wont open up all the way because of said glue.

so, is there a way to sew this thing together w/out punching holes in the fold of the folios? my google-fu has failed me  Undecided
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / pattern drafting - what tools do i need? on: August 26, 2005 09:01:07 PM
so, i have these magazines from japan that come with sewing patterns (you can see one here if you're curious: http://www.otaku.co.uk/cgi-bin/itemview.asp?itemid=66889e). my problem is that not all of the pieces for all of the outfits n stuff are on the pattern sheet, some drafting is required. the pictures are really good so knowing japanese isnt my problem.

but anyway, my question is, should i go out and buy a set of french or ship curves or something or is free-handing the curves safe? right now its just me, a ruler, and a giant roll of tracing paper. also, if i do decide to buy some curves, do i need a whole set or just one thats a particular size? these things really baffle me lol

thanks for any help Smiley

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / getting felt to stay? on: August 11, 2004 10:36:18 PM
so i tried to make some felt hairclips and the damned thing wouldnt stay on the clip itself. i cut out the felt and glued it together with fabric glue, and all of that stayed fine (its a strawberry btw). but when i tried to use hotglue to attach it to the clip (one of those plain metal snap clips) it fell off right away after drying. i used white glue after that too see what would happen and that stayed for about 2 days then fell off again.
anyone have any suggestions?
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / making bathroom lights less ugly?? on: August 03, 2004 03:31:31 PM
my boyfriend just got his first apartment and he's already complaining that the lights above the mirror in his bathroom are too bright. the lights are above the mirror, they're big, round lightbulbs (probably like 5 of them?) all in a row, like a vanity mirror sorta.

anyone have any ideas on how to cover them? i suggested getting some sort of stiff crepe paper or something and just rubber banding it over the light...but he didnt like that idea, probably too girly for him *shrugs*
7  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / corset dress pattern on: February 29, 2004 09:31:52 PM


does anyone know of a pattern for a dress like that? or, is it possible to use 2 patterns and does anyone have any reccomendations?

thanks much Smiley
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / tool (the band) pillow on: February 17, 2004 07:43:12 PM

This is a pillow i made for my b/f like a year ago. I figured I'd put it up for critique even though its old because no one who knows anything about embroidery has ever seen it.

I only did the embroidery, then sent it to this cool tailor lady in my town to make the actual pillow cover.

please tell me if you see something wrong or if you're willing to tell me the name of the stitch i used! i'd appreciate it very much..

Thanks Smiley
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / v-day gifts for guys?? on: February 11, 2004 09:48:20 PM
Ok, I have a dilemma. First off i'm not sure this is in the right section of the forum, lol!

I want to make something for my b/f for V-day, but i really don't want it to be something pink, fluffy, lacy...well you know - girly and froofy. I cant think of anything that wouldn't look like a grade school project and that isnt covered in pink roses  Tongue

anyone have any ideas?
