1  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Dorm wall decorating on: August 17, 2007 10:56:01 PM
ok so i am leaving for college in about a week. I am going to be a sophmore, so it is nothing new. However, I cannot think of any creative ways to decorate the walls. we are not allowed to have any cloth hangings on the walls, and the curtains are already in the room. The walls are white painted cinder block style, so i can't nail anything.
I was thinking of buying an old textbook with lots of pictures in it from half.com and cutting them out.
or magazines maybe. i don't know.
Any suggestions on text books that have a lot of good picture?
I am not really a fan of black and white... I love bright colors.

or any suggestions about decorating?
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / any suggestions for patterns? on: October 12, 2006 08:29:49 PM
so i really hate having to carry my keys and cell phone and everyhting in my pockets when i go to parties and stuff.
i can never find purses that i like, so im thinking im going to make one,
however, i have no idea where to start.
i really love how clutches look, but i hate the fact that i cant put them on my shoulder or anything, and im not a big fan of those hobo style bags.
does anyone have any suggestions of a pattern for a purse that is not real big, and isnt a tote or a jordy bag? also easy to make, im not that advanced with sewing.
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / help about slippery flip flops on: June 01, 2006 03:52:49 PM
this isnt completly craft related, and feel free to delete this if its not allowed, but i figure it involves being sort of crafty.
so i have this pair of flip flops, but they are kind of worn out, so the bottoms have no friction and are slippery when i walk. i REAL afraid that one day i will be walking and slide and fall and that would be embarrasing as anything.
any ideas of how i can add some grip to the bottom?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / any ideas of what i could do? on: May 06, 2006 11:49:26 AM
ive got this fabric i bought $1 a yard, so if i mess up and ruin it, no big deal. i REALLY like the look of a dress over jeans, but all the dresses i own are knee length, and dont look too good with jeans. i figured i'd try to make a dress out of the fabric. any ideas for patterns or anything? empire waists dont look too great on me. there isnt any stretch to the fabric so id have to do a zipper or a tie of some sort? any thoughts are much appreciated. sorry its so long.

this is the fabric

that is just a normal size chapstick to show size.

p.s. im aware that the fabric is kind of ugly, but this is pretty much just a practice run
