1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Ipod holders....UNITE! on: June 20, 2007 10:04:32 PM
Ok, I'm trying to make an ipod case for my friend before he comes back from vacation. The problem is that I lost all the measurements for it. AGH!

Does anyone have the measurements for the 80G ipod? I'd love a pattern also if anyone has already done one just so I don't have to worry about screwing up on the measurements when adding seam allowances and a tad bit of room for the fabric.

I know that you can find measurements online, but those are in decimal form and I would like something that I can mark out from a measuring tape.

Thank you!
2  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Huston, we have a problem on: June 17, 2007 07:22:23 PM
So I'm making an ipod case for a friend and he manages to get it disgustingly dirty all the time. Instead of asking him to do something as simple as clean it once a day or so I came up with a brillaint idea. Even he could now keep his doompod (his word not mine) clean.

I thought I'd use a glasses cleaning cloth as lining so every time he uses the case the ipod would get cleaned. The problem is that I want the lining to be black and I have several glasses cleaning cloths but no black ones. I have a gray one, a silvery one, and a red one.

How can I dye these black? I'd like to just use things around the house if I can but I will buy some dye at the store if needed.

For those wondering why I don't just get a black cleaning cloth from the store, the problem is that I just can't find one. It's a small town, u don't have a lot of choices and I'm not going to drive 45 minutes to the next city & then search all the stores for a black glasses cleaning cloth.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Different kind of pants to skirt on: January 26, 2007 08:01:48 PM
So I was online the other day and I saw a picture of a ripped up jean skirt kind of like this and I thought...I can do this even better. I'm all leg so my jeans always get too short long before they get to small in the waist. I just don't like the whole look of sewing fabric in the middle of the jean legs but i'm too modest to wear a mini or something. Here's the compromise.

Here are the pictures they're not very good it took me forever and a day to get my scanner to work....ok nvr mind I can't figure out how to get them on here either your going to have to go to my photobucket or you're just going to have to take my word for it that the skirt looks good. Sry the flash was so bright

Here is the front...& no my legs are not that freakishly small...bad camera angles.


Ok here are the two side shots with yet another weird looking limb in the shot



Here's the back...ok question....add a little more material or not? it's a little shorter than the front


Here's the full body shot w/ my weird face...but dn't we all do weird faces when taking pics?


I used a bunch of different stitches and ways to piece the fabric together but the different frayed parts stand out the most.


I like the skirt bcuz the jean is stretchy making it uber comfy. I just followed the line down from the top of the jeans for a normal skirt shape and it ended up hugging my hips good and then flairing and ruffling a bit. Yei for not looking like a stick!!!
