211  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Gummy Bear candles on: August 16, 2004 12:10:29 PM
as far as letting them melt...because I'm a science dork I know a couple of things.  When you put a flame near a gummy bear they bubble and stuff as they melt.  I've used this as a project demo to exhibit the body's burning of calories.  I don't know how that would work out with your candle.  It might sound cool, but wind up messy?!
212  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: No Win t-shirts on: August 16, 2004 09:47:05 AM
I think pink one looks incomplete. If the patch was smaller (perhaps 4"x3" or so), it would still stand out, and not get in the way of how loud the shirt is. The big patch fights for attention with the pink. In order to make the big patch work well, I would add more to the shirt. Perhaps replace the sleeves with black ones and add to the empty space below the patch something else dark and plain that wraps around to the back.

I was thinking this as well.  Or, if you do want the patch that big, maybe go for an angle rather than straight across.  It would give the shirt even more visual interest than it already has (because I'm sure you already know it's bloody brilliant Wink ) by giving it a different flow, and a different line for the eye to follow.  If I did that though I might also consider a slightly uneven hem line to mirror the angle of the patch. 

The second shirt, I love.  I like the font...how it's bold but not to block-like. 

As for wearing clothes inside out...this happens to me all the time, usually when I'm really tired and I realise a couple of hours into the day that I haven't dressed myself properly.  I tend to wear things backwards too.  I was once on a road trip and we stopped to use the restroom...definite ly figured out why my undies had been bothering me.  Yeah, they were on backwards the whole time. Embarrassed

Thanks, I'll let y'all know what happens when I try it!
214  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / laundry marker on: August 16, 2004 12:08:26 AM
So I've never stenciled before and I was thinking about stenciling some canvas for a clutch purse.  I had a thought...if I used a laundry marker to fill in my stencil instead of paint, would it look alright?  It would be able to get wet and everything, plus I have more control over a marker so I would think I would get cleaner edges.  Any thoughts?
215  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re: tote bag ideas? on: August 16, 2004 12:04:25 AM
I'm thinking like a tear drop shape with a gusset.  except it would be flat on the top and not come to a point.  But then it really wouldn't be a tote.  perhaps a wavy edge on a rectangle.  MIght be hard to sew the curves, but it would look cool.
216  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / two bag ideas on: August 16, 2004 12:00:31 AM
So, I have two bag ideas in the works.  The first is a present for my mom.  We were in a little boutique and they had this little black "disc" purse is the best way I can describe it.  It had a white ribbon as a handle and a little white bow where the handle met the bag.  I'm going to look for nice fabric for this as soon as I get back to school.  Her birthday is in October and I want to send her a little something special in addition to what my sister and I get her.  And she'll be so surprised because I don't think she even saw me look at the bag after she picked it up.  The second bag is going to be tiny.  I basically want to make a ciggarette case with a little flap, a lighter pocket on the side, I little pocket on the back for cash/ID, and a strap with a key ring attached to hold it by/attach your keys to.  I'm making it for my friend for the holidays.  If it turns out well I may consider selling them just because that's a convienient little thing to have when you go out to clubs or bars or even just a gathering with friends because if you're me you spend the 20 minutes before you leave looking for your purse.  This you could keep with you because it's so small.  I'm not a smoker but I was thinking that a pack or ciggarettes is about the same size as a cell phone, so you could probably hold either...or have a two pocket one for both.  I'll try to postpictures when I get on these bags.  but I'm starting school in like a week and a half, so it might be a while.

There is a tutorial somewhere on this sight for one of those lights.  The picture is kinda yucky and she used a bra attached to the bottom of a tank...but I would go buy pretty, cheap lingerie at kohl's or target or something.  I'm too tired to look for the post now, but search for it, and if I come across it I'll let you know.

Thanks, good to know.  I wouldn't have wanted to finish the strap only to put it on and it be too short.  It would be very me not to check beforehand!

220  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: cocktail umbrella mobile on: August 11, 2004 10:36:27 PM
When I was little my dad was in restaurant supplies.  He used to bring home bags of cocktail umbrellas for me.  So, I would open them and stick them in the carpeting and have a beach for all of my barbies Grin
