1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 15 ENTRIES / My creation got my coworker pregnant!!! (BookBot) on: October 04, 2006 08:33:47 PM
I work in a book store. It sucks a lot, but its cool too.

One day while opening the shipment the boxes trembled! Books toppled from the shelves and from their wake emerged

BOOKBOT! (oooooo)


Bookbot with the mother...


And Bookbot with me


Now unfortunatly BookBot got a little violent and we had to call the coppers on him. They kinda laughed so I threw him out...

(Plus my boss would flip if she had came in the next mornin and saw that....)

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mess Up into ...hooded thing? on: September 21, 2006 07:16:18 PM
I tried to make a hoodie and forgot that the pattern I was using was for STRETCHYness and my fabric was non stretch. So it was to small Sad

BUT I had already made pockets on it! POCKETS! I was so proud! I couldnt scrap it Sad

So after much debate, sewing random things to it, ripping them off, running out of fabric and finding a substitute I came up with this thing.





Anyone else who asks I will be forced to say:

"Well I always hated how when I bought a new shirt I have to cover it with a sweater and cant show it off. So I made this to be warm and show off my foul shirts."

Thats my story, Im stickin to it.

So do you guys think I fixed it or does it look insane?
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Sewing stretchy fabric? on: September 13, 2006 02:31:32 PM
I was trying to sew a shirt from some stretchy fabric but after I finished the line the thread looked bunched up and if I stretched the fabric the thread came undone.

i was using a straight stitch...

Is there a certain stitch to use or a certain thread?

The fabric is so soooft and I wanna wear it Sad
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Holy !! I actually Made something!! on: September 07, 2006 08:01:45 PM
So I randomly decided to buy a sewing machine... and after finding this great forum I felt daring enough to try to make something.

Im not going to post that something... didnt work out to hot, BUT after a couple practice runs on random tshirts I made this!



I tried to make another one but I made it to small because I didnt take into account the nonstretchyness of the fabric I was using.

Any sugestions on how to fix a too small shirt hood thing?
