211  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: my first try... easy-sew frayed quilt. on: February 22, 2006 09:03:57 AM
If possible, could you post a close-up of the seams please?

The best I can do for now is this... just a close-up of the posted image. But I'll bring my digi-cam along the next time I go to visit my Grandma!
212  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / tinkerbell t-shirt to tank top (+4 images) on: February 22, 2006 09:00:13 AM

So I don't have any "before" pictures of the t-shirt I used, but it was an X-Large... I was basically swimming in it.

I made it into the funky tank top:





The idea here is that I cut diagonally along the side and rather than cut the excess fabric off the bottom on the one side, I pleated it along the diagonal. Ta-da!

Questions and comments are welcome.
213  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / my first try... easy-sew frayed quilt. on: February 22, 2006 08:51:11 AM
Hi! I'm new to crafster...

I took a craft class and made this quilt for my Grandma for Christmas (sort of backwards, I know, quilting for my Grandma, haha) and I thought I'd share!

It was really simple to make...

Step 1: I went to Fabricland and found the most random fabrics possible at $1/metre. I used 10 different patterns and purchased 2 metres of each (I'm pretty sure that's what it was...) for a total of 20 metres.

Step 2: Cut out my squares and sew each square to another of the same pattern so that the bad sides face in. I then arranged these double-sided squares in a pleasing pattern.

Step 3: I sewed all the squares together SEAMS OUT on the one side (the reverse of the quilt doesn't have the frayed edges).

Step 4: Finally, I made little cuts in the ugly outward seams and the edges of the quilt - about 1 cm apart each - then ran the whole thing through the wash. In the washer, the 1 cm cuts turn into frays that look really neat, and this way you don't have to be picky about your edges... great for a beginner like myself!

Questions and comments are appreciated! Thanks.
214  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / potential b-day gift: glass drinking glasses on: February 22, 2006 08:29:10 AM
Hello all!

I am a long time lurker, but first time poster. My question is in regards to a birthday present I hope to make for my brother. His birthday isn't until August 27th and I don't plan on starting for a while (I'm in university right now, so there isn't much time for crafts), but I figured I'd get started on ideas and asking questions.

Do any old Sesame Street fans remember THIS GUY:

You can't tell a hero by his size,
He's just a teeny little super guy!

I want to purchase some simple clear drinking glasses and create a series of Teeny Little Super Guys in different positions. My question is:

How do you suggest I go about drawing/painting/gluing on the Teeny Little Super Guy? I know that I could purchase glass & ceramic paint complete with sealing topcoat and whatnot, but I'm not much of an artist in that regard, so if you have any ideas as to how I could maybe print the images from my computer and glue them to the glass, I would really appreciate it! They need to be able to stand hand-washing, but at least he won't be running them through the dishwasher.

Thanks guys,
