1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Yet another Butterick 4790 retro whirl-away dress! on: August 29, 2008 01:00:08 PM
...kinda looks like a tablecloth or an apron to me.

whaaaaa? i don't think i've ever seen anyone post anything rude on craftster. i'm not even sure this person meant to be rude. (some people are kind of dense that way.) it kind of cracks me up.
meanwhile that dress is badass. i'm pretty jealous that it's your first machine sewn project. i've been sewing for years and i'm not sure i can do that good of a job.

please make some sort of art out of those skates and the x-ray. i think the double benefit of having a great lamp and not being able to use the skates anymore is the way to go.
man that x-ray is amazing.

so hi. i'm raven crum.  i'm basically a generalist but have been mostly into reconstruted garments as-of-late. the reason being that i've opened a used clothing store here in honolulu. people bring in stuff to sell or trade and they often dont want to deal with the leftover items. so i print on or frankenstich what i can and sell it in my shop.
i'm always on the hunt for kids who want to sell their handmade goods at my shop. clothes, jewelry, hats, bags, whatever.
i also am pretty involved wit local art and music happenings and love to host workshops and events when i have time. i'm a networking workhorse if you need anything.
i'm looking imto putting together a honolulu art collective in the coming year. i'm pretty into it.
glad i stumbled onto this. i never thought about looking for local peeps on craftster. it's very nice to make yer aquaintances. hope to see you on land sometime.

if you're getting very simple fabrics, theres always the micronesian fabric store on vineyard and liliha. SUPPORT SMALL BUSINESS.
THE KALAKAUA FABRIC MART IS MY FAVORITE BUT THERE IS ALSO A F.M. IN AIEA near jelly's, behind the goodwill outlet. if you live out that way.
for buttons and zippers etc i'm a fan of the smaller thrift stores like the one on uh's campus and the one next to down to earth in kaimuki. lots of cheap and adorable vintage/never used sewing extras.

i've found that the best way to handle white on black is to use a larger gauge screen. just the next size up. i use 12 g. for dark on light and 10 g. for lt on dk.
the bigger holes allow more ink through so you dont have to mess with layering ink.

i remember seeing a belt made out of metro-cards once(ny subway passes that are credit card sized). they were sewn end to end and a buckle was attached. but metro cards are thinner and more vinyl-ish than charge cards. so i would do the grommet/jump-ring thing if i were going to make a belt. but i think it would look pretty sweet. mabe you could even melt a little bit of a curve into them. good luck.
