1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Sculpture!?!? Sticks!?!?! on: February 19, 2007 04:29:34 PM
So. For my H.S. art class we are working on sculptures. Made of sticks. That's really our only instructions.
It can't be too big. I can add anything else to it. I can paint it, decopauge (sp?) it. Basically do anything. As long as it involves branches.
Insparation anyone? Ideas? I would very much appreciate it. : )
Thankies.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jacket excitement! on: October 24, 2006 07:27:42 AM
So my grandmother had this very random red and black jacket that is mainly polyester. She tried to dump it off on everyone and nobody wanted the ugly thing. Eventually, she gave it to my boyfriend who loves it and wears it everyday.
The problem?
It's ugly.
He wears it because it's comfy, but we are both baffled by the random number sevens all over it.
He's a big fan of Avenged Sevenfold "A7X" so we are thinking that I can craft it up and make some A7X's and a Bat-Skull.
But the jacket is mainly polyester, so what would be the best method of pretty-ing it up?
I embroider, but I think that might end up a little funky, and I'm not sure how fabric paint will work.
I could always sew fabric onto it, but that would be my last choice, because if I hand sewed it, it would be poopy. My sewing machine is a monster, so that might not be the best idea ever.
Help?

Hello! I was just wondering if anyone has ever seen any Shakespeare themed scrapbooking paper.

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need help on Knitting a name... on: June 29, 2006 05:07:28 AM
I am making my friend's imaginary friend(yeah, we're kinda kooky) a scarf for Saturday (it's Thursday) and I am knitting it in regualr garter stitch, but my problem is I wanted to write "schay" on it, and I'm a bit confused how.
I wanted to use red yarn on the black scarf and somehow kind of, embroider(?) it. Any tips would be very appreciated.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / "seduction" dog treats.... strange, I know.... on: February 06, 2006 07:53:12 AM
So I was in the dollar store with my mother and saw a bag of dog treats labeled "Seduction" for senior dogs. It was utterly rediculous and I immediately thought "ooh what can I make out of that?!??!"  Iw ould be much too afraid to feed them to my actual dogs, so any ideas what to make with the funny bag??? It's like a regular small treat bag with a reclosablie seal at the top.... and its very funny  Cheesy
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Kuma Hat from Gravitation Anime. Kawaii!!! on: February 05, 2006 10:47:45 AM
This is my Kumagaro hat! Kuma is a bunny from the Gravitation anime/manga, and he is very loveable and pink. I first found a similar hat on a website, but it was very expsensive so I decided to make my own. I basically followed a pattern for a regular hat and sewed ears on it when I was done. I hand sewed buttons for eyes and a little mouth and nose... Everyone seems to enjoy it, and it was one of my very first sewing projects. I'm very proud of him even though he is somewhat ill-fitting.
Here he is sitting atop the George Foreman grill...

and here is a above view of him on my head!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Johnny The Homicidal Maniac Purse and Wallet. image heavy. on: February 05, 2006 10:32:53 AM
This is my first time posting one of my projects so I hope it works.
I made this bag and wallet a while ago out of black duct tape, some JthM printouts, clear packaging tape, grey paper and silver stuff I found in my basement. It's sewn with red embroidery floss in either blanket stitch or overcast stitch. I also embroidered on the lines between the pictures and the "NNY" and "JTHM"  It's a bit messy but I love it! Oh, and in case anyone doesn't know, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac is a comic made by Jhonen Vasquez, creator of Invader Zim.

9  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Jayne Cobb hat on a Knifty Knitter. on: February 01, 2006 03:06:31 PM
Hello! I was planning on making a Jayne Cobb hat from Firefly  (you can see it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19076.0 ) and I going to try to make it, but it seems to be a bit advanced for me to do on needles, so I want to try it on my new Knifty Knitter. This would be my first Knifty Knitter project and I was just wondering if anyone had any tips for this hat or a similar one. Thankies!
