11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / dremel help. on: October 17, 2008 06:00:18 PM
Ok so Christmas is coming quickly and most of my presents involve resin. I need to drill holes in the resin to thread my strings through.

What kind of dremel/rotary tool should i get and where? ive looked all over the internet and its alot of confusing information.  Huh

All i really need it for is drilling holes in resin and maybe sanding off the rouch egdes.

Thank you in advance.<3
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Custom belt buckles?? on: October 03, 2008 09:11:38 PM
I have done some searching on here and cant seem to find the correct answer to my problems. For Christmas i am planning on making my boyfriend a few custom belt buckles with some artwork on them.

I had originally just planned on using resin (much like you do with photo pendents) however these were the only frame belt buckles i could find.

I do not like the rope. I would rather have just a plain frame.

Question 1: Am i just not looking in the right place. I have googled the heck out this.

I did find these.

The plain look i want but no frame... they are completely flat.

Question 2: I am planning on printing out the picture mod podgeing the heck out of it.. and gluing it to the buckle.. How would i seal it? Could i still use resin or i have heard of embossing powder (Like in this posthttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=264367.0)would that work in this case and if so how.

Sorry if that is so confusing or if i need to explain better or you have other questions feel free. i am completely stuck and any advice would help
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Wrestling Tights?? on: September 09, 2008 01:10:57 AM
Wellllll I have been assigned the task of making my boyfriend wrestling tights (for costume purposes only)
Something similar to this.

My question is what the pattern should look like.
I've made leggings for myself and it worked out beautifully but since boys have... extra parts... i'm not sure if the same pattern would work.

Any suggestions?

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mens dress shirt to cute jumper type top. <3 *UPDATED* w/ fixed hole! yay! on: August 01, 2008 04:08:22 PM
Okay.. so i have been a member of craftster since December 2005 and it has taken me this long to gather the courage to finally post.
I used this tutorial.
http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/4942517.html#cutid1

My boyfriend gave me one of his dress shirts. It started out this way

Its light blue with purple and white stripes.

It ended up like this.


Close up of the front.


The back. I was going to have the straps cross in the back but i ran out of material.


And now my little problem... while i was cutting off extra material i accidentally cut a hole in back and then somehow managed to cut the same spot again while cutting a long thread. I dont know what to put there to hide it.


Comments/criticism welcome. <3 Holly<3
*******UPDATE********
I FIXED THE HOLE!!!!


THANK YOOOUUUU for all the awesome ideas and compliments... i originally was going to see if i could find some cute wings or even maybe learn to crochet  but i am impatient and decided to take the last small rectangle of the fabric (that i am so glad that i saved) and by accident made the perfect bow.




I LOOOOOOOVE IT!!
