131  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / U.K. AND IRELAND / London college of fashion.. anybody been or going? on: September 27, 2006 10:38:19 AM
was just wondering how people got into here? as the prospectus only says a good portfolio and entry profile... yet it's almost impossible to get in, but how many ucas points did anybody have upon entry anyway? thanx if anybody answers! Lou x

I'll be off to uni next year and It's not likely, but I'd LOVE to go here.. only the prospectus doesn't state how many ucas points you need.. so i'm guessing you just need a good entry profile and portfolio.. but I just wanted to know, if anybody else had been or is there, how did you get in?? thanx  Grin Lou xx
133  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / cute printed tablecloth thingy... what the heck.. impulse buying.. now what?!! on: September 25, 2006 10:35:46 AM
okay, so I took a trip into town today for some retail therapy, (much needed as had been doing college work since 9AM til 3PM then carried on when I got home!  Sad ) so anyway.. I went into the local cheap crud shop, only to find this kind of.. thin plastic table cloth with a gorgeous print on it:

it was only 99p and it's HUGE! but now I don't know what to do with it... I'm going to cut some of it up to stick in one of my sketchbooks for college, but there'll be a whole load left and I just don't know what to do with it.. it'd make an awesome top or some kind of clothing thing, but it's too thin and only cheap so can't imagine it lasting or being particularly waterproof etc!

Any idea = much appreciated  Grin

134  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / UK swaps?? on: September 05, 2006 05:04:08 AM
Hi.. this information is probably available somewhere on the site, but I can't find it anywhere.. so I'm probable being really stupid..! But is there such thing as a UK swap? Lou  Grin xx
135  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / transferring lace pattern onto fabric.. possible???! on: September 03, 2006 01:41:57 PM
HI! I had this brainwave a few weeks ago, which was to use the legs I cut off some camo trousers (made the rest into a skirt!), and make a tote bag. My idea was to lay lace over the fabric, and sponge florescent fabric paint over it to get the lace effect onto the fabric. However.. the paint was tooooooo thin.. WAY too thin! lol, and the lace wasn't thick enough.. hence I ended up with a trouser leg with a splodge of yellow paint that looked like erm... vom!

Basically my question is.. would this be possible? the fabric is dark and I thought the colours would work well with the florescent so I'd effectively like to use this, but perhaps lighter fabric and thicker paint.. plus thicker lace would work better..??

OR - is there such thing as "SPRAY ON FABRIC PAINT"..?!

Or is there a way I can coat the lace so it's kinda waterproof..? hmm would that even work.. my guess is... no!

Any help would be much appreciated!  Grin

136  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 1920s daywear.. any help!? on: September 02, 2006 01:37:31 PM
Hi  Grin I've been given a project at college to design and make a 3 piece outfit inspired by 1920's day or sports wear but NOT evening wear...! I'm finding it really hard finding inspiration, so I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas of what I could do?? I thought about a coat but everybody seemed to do that who had this project last year... any help would be GREATLY appreciated! lol Lou xxx  Grin
