1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / New Year's Eve Wedding on: December 20, 2008 05:39:23 AM
My little sister is getting married on New Year's Eve, and I am still struggling to come up with ideas for what to make her for a Wedding gift. My Father passed away eight years ago, and I wanted to do something that would make him a part of her wedding somehow. No, I don't want to have whatever it is at her wedding, or give it to her on her wedding day because I don't want to depress her. However, I know how much it bothers her that he's not here to walk her down the aisle. I have no idea what I could do that wouldn't be chinsky, though.

In case no one has any ideas that could involve my Dad, her wedding colors and navy blue and silver. Her fiancee is in the navy, and she loves that. Any ideas on something nice I could make her at all? I know it's kinda close, but I can't really do things unless I feel the crunch. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Beginning seamstress. on: April 01, 2008 02:18:58 AM
I have sewn a few things successfully, but both have been with the help of a more experienced seamstress who stole my fabric and fell off the face of the earth. Two Christmas' ago my Mom got me an amazing sewing machine for Christmas....which I have used TWICE! I made a ferret hammock for my old roommates ferrets, and pillows. (Ferrets may be cute, but my goodness they reek.)

I have two gigantic rubbermaid totes full of fabric, tons of notions, and a few vintage patterns. I am not willing to use the vintage patterns yet because I don't want to ruin them, what are some good projects to start with? Either pattern suggestions, or just a nudge towards a beginner friendly craftster tutorial would be greatly appreciated.
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Probably the silliest resin question ever. on: March 03, 2008 07:12:32 AM
I finally purchased resin and catalyst to try making resin jewelry, and I didn't think I'd run into trouble *this* early on. I can't get the stupid can to open! Does anyone have any tips on how to open Castin' Craft resin? The things that normally work for jars don't seem like they would be the smartest thing to try with something like resin. I was looking forward to a day of crafting since I'm finally caught up with homework. Sorry for posting such a ridiculous question, but I've already blistered my finger. (From the lid, nothing scary.)
4  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / Addicted. on: February 28, 2008 06:23:17 AM
I don't really remember when I joined craftster, but over time I have started frequenting here much more often. I wake up and immediately after myspace and perezhilton.com, I come to craftster. I look through the hot new projects, then just the newest ones. Then I spend at least an hour just looking through old posts for inspiration. I even overstimulated my brain with craftster to the point that when I finally quit clicking through it and went to bed, I had a craft related "nightmare."

I really just wanted to post to say thank you. First of all to whoever created the site, secondly to the wonderful people who maintain it, and thirdly to all of the people who post gorgeous work that makes me hate you.
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing Question. on: October 16, 2007 03:14:21 PM
I have a super nice sewing machine thanks to my Mom, but so far all I've made is a ferret hammock. I've sewn a couple of things before, but nothing really fantastic aside from the hammock. I'd really like to start sewing more but I'm scared. I have tons of fabric and notions, a few patterns but they're vintage and I really don't want to utilize them until I'm more comfortable as a "seamstress."

What are some tutorials you have used that have been pretty beginner friendly? (Please, none with patterns.)

I hope this sort of post is permitted.
