1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Graduation Gifts? on: May 11, 2006 05:56:35 PM
Two of my older sisters are having graduations, one of them is graduation from High School and will be going off to college in the fall and the other is graduating from college. One of the graduations is at the end of this month (May) and the other is the first week of June but they're having a joint party which isn't until the middle of June so I do have a little time but I can't seem to come up with a good gift.

I was thinking that the one who is going off to college is going to be very very VERY broke while she is there so I would put together a basket of stuff that she could use while she was there but I'm not really sure what kind of stuff a broke college kid would appreciate. Any suggestions?
2  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Givenchy dress on: April 22, 2006 10:01:09 PM
Okay, I love how the top of Ashley's dress is and I'd like to try and make a dress (or just a top) that is similar to it but I'm always afraid of doing things without a pattern or at least a tutorial to follow because I always make stupid mistakes.

But, my basic idea is to cut two long rectangles (or perhaps triangles?) for the bust part and sort of gather it a little in the middle where it would touch the shoulder and then just another band for the waist (which I would just make longer for a top) but what about for the skirt part of the dress?

Does this sound sort of correct?

Thanks for any help!

4  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Pattern for Hayley Starr Dress??? on: February 04, 2006 03:32:11 PM
I really really really love this dress by Hayley Starr. I'd love to make it but I've tried making things without a pattern and they never turn out right so I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a pattern that would help me make this dress?



That's the only picture of it that I could find. Ginnifer Goodwin wore it to Block Party but I can't find a picture of her in it. (If anyone gets Teen Vogue it's on page 115 of the March 2006 issue.)

Thanks in advance for any help!

6  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / BIRTHDAY MONTH SWAP - FEBRUARY (SIGNUPS 1/30/06 - 2/28/06) on: January 30, 2006 02:05:54 PM
PLEASE READ ALL DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY! 
YOU MUST BE PRE-APPROVED BEFORE PARTICIPATING


Swap name: Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: talkaboutlush (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: 1/30/05-2/28/06
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of Course!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? All Ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES


Details of swap: 

This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday! 
Please read the guidelines carefully.


If your birthday is in February, think of a list of things that you would want to receive. The more you think of, the better.

Fill out the questionnaire and pm me with it. Once you've been approved, you may post your bio and list on this thread. Please try and keep this thread to just the lists, I'd like to keep it neat!

Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in February for you to craft for someone.  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, and what item, and I will send you their address.

 If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from youyou guessed it, negative feedback!

 Each person can be chosen unlimited times!  HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!

 It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publically announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, your on your honor!).

You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.

Original idea thread and discussion located here- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=68058.0

If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "Birthday Swap February" in the subject line.

7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Types Of Fabrics? on: January 27, 2006 03:34:42 PM
Okay, what is jersey knit fabric/what is it good to use for? And what is double knit fabric/what is it good to use for??
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Little Polka Dot Clutch on: January 21, 2006 05:14:38 PM
Okay well I was trying to make another style of purse and I messed up  Embarrassed sooo it turned into this little clutch. (Sorry the picture isn't very good!) It's black and white polka dot fabric and it's pleated up at the top and then it just has the white stripe along the top and a white lining! What do ya think?

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make a shirt like this?? on: January 20, 2006 09:51:21 PM
Alright, I'm ususally not very good with figuring these things out so how do you make this type of shirt?



Do you think just taking a tshirt and reconstructing it would work? Like, cut off the sleeves, and dut down the collar, then sew the new sleeves and collar and attach?

See, it sounds reasonable but whenever I think I have something like this figured out, it turns out I'm wrong and my project turns out terribly...hehe  Embarrassed

Has anyone ever made something like this?
10  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Earring Binge *Round 3* (SIGNUP CLOSED) on: January 18, 2006 04:12:31 PM
Swap name: Earring Binge *Round 3*
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: talkaboutlush
Sign-up date range: 1/18/06 - 1/28/06
Date to send item by: 2/24/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): Nope!

Non-U.S. participants allowed? Of course!

All ages allowed? Or 18+? All ages!!

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES!

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES!

Details of swap:

Here are the previous earring swaps:
Round One - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39594.0
Round Two - http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52421.0

This is an earring swap, you will be making as many pairs of earrings as you like and you will receive the same amount in return. You will send each pair to a different person. This means you will most likely send out many different packages! Here's an example:

Theresa makes 3 pairs of earrings. She sends a pair to Sadie, a pair to Emma & a pair to Lauren.
Lauren makes 1 pair of earrings. She sends that one pair to Theresa.
Emma makes 2 pairs of earrings. She sends a pair to Theresa & a pair to Sadie.
Sadie makes 2 pairs of earrings. She sends one pair to Chrystine & one pair to Theresa.
Chrystine makes 1 pair of earrings. She sends that pair to Emma.

Theresa gets 3 pairs of earrings from Lauren, Emma & Sadie.
Lauren gets 1 pair of earrings from Theresa.
Emma gets 2 pairs of earrings from Theresa & Chrystine.
Sadie gets 2 pairs of earrings from Theresa & Emma.
Chrystine gets 1 pair of earrings from Sadie.


There are a couple conditions concerning shipping...

When sending your earrings please please please wrap them in something protective. You can send them in a bubble mailer (one of those envelopes with bubble wrap in it), or in a small box, or just wrapped in tissue paper or foam or something to secure its delivery. It would not be fun to get a bunch of broken earrings.

!!!!UPDATE!!!![/b][/color]
I'm not going to require a DC number on the packages because everyone is sending out so many of them. However, PLEASE get a receipt and scan/take a picture of it.

Please PM me and your partner when you receive any earring packages and let us know that you've gotten them.
