1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What Not to Wear: Barmitzvah Edition on: March 12, 2006 02:38:49 PM
OK, on the first of April I will be attending my friend's Barmitzvah. And I have no clue what to wear. I don't know how casual or formal to go, and I've heard there are rules about what things to cover and what not. So I've turned to you, dear craftsters, to find me a solution! Some past things you've worn, rules about colors and lengths, suggestions...
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / FIRST REAL POST! Wallets (Beware: Images Ahead) on: February 17, 2006 08:45:15 PM
I am TOO excited to show you all my latest (lame) creations. Here it goes.

ITEM #1: Spiderman Wallet

I made this sometime late last year, for my friend's birthday. It was very last minute and very INGENIUS, I must say, as she loved it, even though sometime later, as it was a first creation, it fell apart a little when in use. No worries! I got better. Plus, I made a free repair. That's service. This was made with the best tutorial on earth, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=9299.0. I would have more pictures, but I gave it to her a while ago!


ITEM #2: Donald Duck & Co Wallet

Made with the same tutorial as above, but this one for myself, as I was so impressed with the one I made my friend. Now everyone at my school wants one! Now that's crafting in action. Apologize for the horrid picture quality, my camera was having an off day.




ITEM #3: Zoo-Box Purse Insanity With A Hint Of ModgePodge Disaster!

OK, this one recently fell apart on me. Hmm. I sense a pattern. But I still love it and it's an easy fix anyway. I got a kiddy meal at the zoo, and it came in this loverly plastic blue...suitcase type thing. It was cheap, but I saw a new lunchbox of sorts, so I took it home, scraped off the lame stickers, mixed some glue with water and revved up my scissors. Only to unleash them on my poor magazines...cutting up your babies isn't easy. But I think it was worth it in the end!




That's all for now! But I hope to be uploading soon, because me and my sister are going to see who can make a better MORP Bag. Intrigued? You have to wait to see what it is!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Make Your Own ModgePodge? on: January 08, 2006 11:16:51 AM
I searched, but to no avail.

 While at the zoo I ordered a kid's meal, and it came in this blue plastic carrying case that I decided to keep and turn into a purse/carrying case of sorts. After cutting out many a thing from magazines, they are ready to be glued down.

 I know I should use ModgePodge, but before going out and buying some I seem to remember an old art teacher of mine creating a similar substance with glue and water. Am I crazy, or can you really make your own ModgePodge that will provide the same results?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / West Side Story Dress on: December 24, 2005 07:53:20 AM
OK, I haven't had much luck getting help here before (Sad), but it's worth a try, huh?

That purple dress Anita is wearing in the 1961 movie during 'I want to be in America' is my love. It's also an odd style and I have a feeling it might not flatter everyone. A link to a pattern would VERY appreciated!
5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Killer Rabbit Slippers -- but how??? on: December 22, 2005 04:02:52 PM
OK, so I saw these in a magazine and then and there I was like "Oh, god, I must have them."


I asked for them for Christmas, but my parents are tricksy little hobbitses and they're kind of too expensive for slippers (in their opinion) anyway.

So I wish to make them. I'm a beginner, but I'm eager and ready to learn. We have a trouble making sewing machine in the basement that I dare not touch in fear it will break because it's so old, so I am without assistance. Ideas?
