1  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: quickie dress that anybody can make on: August 08, 2006 02:20:33 PM
this is so cool. is it based on a copyright pattern or would it be possible to sell these dresses? I have a ton of ideas of ways to tweak it thatd be great for my stall, but i dont want to rip off a fellow craftster, or a big corporation, or anybody. everyones versions are so gorgeous. man, these straps could go on anything!

Oh man, such an amazing dress. Like Vivienne Westwood mixed with an original burlesque girl. Also, your friend's figure: holy crap, she is thin and toned and beautiful! I thought only celebrities with personal trainers and 5-hour-a-day workouts could get a body like that. Hell, there goes my excuse...
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Collage plus jewelrymaking equals bling! on: April 28, 2006 12:34:37 PM
 I made a whole series of jewelry just like that! i used auction catalogues, because they have loads of gems and things. its always nice to make double-take jewelery. i wear mine all the time, people always comment.
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / binding a cardboard book? on: April 19, 2006 10:16:49 AM
I'm making a book from cardboard boxes, about 12 pages. Its for an art project on recycling, hence the choice of materials! I know how to do chinese style binding, and coptic stitch, but I dont know how to do this. I think if it was chinese style you wouldn't be able to open the book- because the card wouldn't bend like paper- and coptic stitch, well, the card wont be folded! Does anyone have any ideas for how to go about doing it? Help would be much appreciated!
5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Alternatives to 'official' silk screen mesh? on: April 18, 2006 11:51:59 AM
Even worse than that- it's $50 for a screen thats 8 x 11.5 inches. such a rip off! I have got to move somewhere cheap.

Thanks a lot. i'm not talking about huge screens- more like A3 or A2 size (do you use those paper sizes in america?). I'm amazed you say you can buy prestretched screens for so cheap- I bought one, that was only A4 size, and it cost 30. a complete rip off, but i bought it when i was just starting out, and didnt know you could buy the mesh seperately.

of course id rather not have to stretch them myself, but its not too big a deal to do that. i have now bought about 20sq ft of mesh on ebay, enough for about 2/3 screens, and it was only 12. its the best deal i could find- all the sites ive found have been for industrial printers, and i tried using nylon mesh thats not for screens and it just ripped when i stretched it. so i gave in.

i will try and find some big printing places and ask about old screens. thanks both of you!

I'm making quite big screens though... and have not found it for anything close to $10 a yard! I'm in the UK, and can only find it either in huge bulk (like... 500 yards) or for 15-20 a metre. Everything in the US is so much cheaper and more accessible though, its unfair to the max.

Granny style is so hot. Everything they do is just so right. except, like, muumuus and orthopedic shoes. anyway, thats a lovely lovely bag. How did you do the straps/ top binding? i can almost picture it but not quite. it looks fancier than just sewing it and turning it inside out, because of that outside seam... i always get confused right about handle time.

Ahh thankyou, I guess I will ask my local fabric store if they sell nylon mesh!

that's a great link, thanks.
