1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / EUROPE / Crafty stuff in Zrich? on: December 02, 2006 02:43:30 AM
Hi all,

I will be moving to Zrich by the end of the year and I could use some help feeding my craft-addiction  Smiley
So, are there any helpful Swiss people around to tell me about crafty places/ craft stores I cannot miss?
Thanks!

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / USB-along on: October 27, 2006 02:36:00 AM
This morning I kinda broke the outside of my USB-stick. Now there must be many ways to repair it and make it even better.

I thought of making a felt wrap, to make it look like something with a red glowing eye  Roll Eyes or adding gems and glitter (but I am not sure if my computer would appreciate it as much as I would...)

Or being brave and turn my little stickie into something as cool as this:

Anyone else interested in making their data-storing devices the coolest ever?
3  EUROPE / NETHERLANDS / wool to make felt? on: October 26, 2006 02:31:00 AM
Hi everybody,

I am sure somebody has asked it before, but I am looking for wool (to make felt, not to knit/crochet). There are two shops in Groningen I know that sell wool (pippoos and flokstra), but only in small quantities.
Since I am planning to make some big felts, I am looking for larger batches of wool (fresh from the sheep if needed  Roll Eyes). 
Do any of you know where to get that?
I still have an OV-card, so I can travel a bit, but finding supplies close(r) to home would be very comfortable Smiley
Thanks,

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / yay! a ninja! on: October 26, 2006 12:50:33 AM
Hi all,

Here it is, my tiny project for this weekend's anime convention: a costume of my favorite little ninja  Grin

There is really not much sewing involved (I just bought a shirt, added a hood and put a spike on top), but I just could not wait to share my favorite comic with all of you  Roll Eyes

on me (sorry about the crappy pic)


and in real life  Cool
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / lament on baking computer parts on: October 24, 2006 03:09:32 AM
Allright, so everone probably knows it is not a very good idea to bake a computer...
Anyway, I really wanted to make a cyber-borg-inspired costume for an upcoming anime convention (think star trek's seven-of nine with a little more glitter). I gathered the ingredients (fimo clay, craft foam, wire and some old motherboards and hardrives). After some sculpting, repeated fittings and meticulous placing of resistors and wires in the clay it was time to bake... and to discover some surprising properties of computer parts...
When i turned on the grill of my little oven (which has worked fine on polymere clay before), disaster struck: there were sparks and exploding parts of clay everywhere  Cry
So for all you aspiring cyborgs out there: bake first, add electronics later Embarrassed   
7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / good weather umbrella project :) on: September 14, 2006 03:57:27 AM
Hi everyone,

The past month it has been raining here in the Netherlands, so I thought I would make myself an awesome umbrella.
The idea is to buy a ready-made black umbrella and to paint the inside in such a way that I will always have a nice, blue sky above my head Grin.
Since umbrellas are generally made of synthetic fabric I would like  to use acrylic paints for the inside. I just have no idea if they will be flexible enough (I would like to be able to open and close the thing without getting a shower of paint flakes Roll Eyes). Does the paint make the umbrella not waterproof? Should I use some kind of sealing?
I short, I love the idea, but I don't really know how to tackle it Huh.
Suggestions anyone?

Thanks,
Swaantje
