53  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: My take on the "Chucks to flats" on: March 27, 2007 01:08:59 AM
OMG thanks for all the replies this was actually the first time i ever posted anything i've made.. thanks! : ) and as for the edges... I used (instead of the recommended ribbon) Quilt straight edging. I'm not sure what it is called but I know it worked very well becasue it was the perfect width and folded straight down the middle so it kind of hugge the edge of the shoe and didn't move.. thus making it easier to hand sew a straight line (lol). and yeah i custom decorated teh box too lol i decided to go all out ; ) and P.S. I wold totally recommend you trying this with your old shoes cause I bought this pair with the sole intention of making these (and i actually bought two pairs cause i thought i would mess up but i didn't). So simple. there's a tutorial around here somewhere.  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120870.0
54  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / My take on the "Chucks to flats" Now with an abundance of pictures! ; ) on: March 23, 2007 01:30:51 AM


lol I made mine simple cause they were a gift for my little sister, made some "laces" from other color ribbons and made some cute (removable) charms with the left over fabric I cut off of the shoes. lol simple. not much talent required here. She loved them though. : ) so proud of myself. sorry for the low quality pic. this was actually taken with an old skool disposable camera ; ) lol

Edited on May 2nd!

I made some more for my aunt who is turning 15 in a week! she loved the ones i made for my sister so i made her a pair for her very own!

lol sorry I'm just so proud of myself i like the way these came out better...






Thanks to who ever thought of this. they are great. ; )

And I would totally tell anyone who is thinking of doing this to go for it! it's super easy and you don't need much. but i found out the second time around that it would be easier to glue down the binding with fabric glue and then stitch over it cause it makes it a much neater finish and more professional looking. also, with the ribbon 'laces' i highly recommend you secure the edges with non-fraying glue so they stay laces and not end up a bunch of string. okay I'm done lol sorry! : )

I actually had the same thing happen to me when i was in high school! Eek. I told her i would be more than happy to make it for her if she supplied the fabric lol i didn't seem rude because I made it seem like I wante to make her something that I knew she would love and in order to do that I wanted her to choose the fabric.. needless to say, she decided she didn't want it anymore when she had to pay for something. Sad or maybe she didn't really want it to begin with? idrc lol

My room is actually kind of like that (only instead of teal it's purple). I just bought these http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=4531964 curtains at walmart the other day and they look really great. Unlike the picture looks, they are actually sheer with black velvety designes. the picture makes them look like a brown or something. maybe you could use it over a teal curtain and that would look really cool. especialy when the sun shines through it. I used a black on black (to actually keep the sun out lol) and I love the way it looks. And I guess it's a plus that the design on the curtains match the decals you would like to use on your wall. P.S.: I love what you've picked out for your room so far. If you could you should post pics of it when you're done!
57  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mexican Cow Garland/Valance for Kitchen idea.. on: March 09, 2007 10:59:10 AM
I bought one of those elephant garlands in Spain this past summer and it was actually not 3d but 2d (kind of the way peopel make some of the little felt monsters). maybe you could just make them out of felt and add sequins and a bit of metallic type fabric just to make them a little bit more eclectic. choose bright colors for your felt, sequin or small indian looking beads for eyes. I hope I was of some help but I'm sure you've already thought of all these things. : )
58  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Any Suggestion? I'm totaly dumbfounded as to what to use... !!?? on: March 09, 2007 10:53:17 AM
 Wink Cool thanks. That actually is very very helpful and sounds like it would work and be a very cost effective way of making my canopy. and thanks for the link (my husband always says i'm terrible at googling stuff). I'm thinking of using some kind of black sheer fabric, but I'm not trying to make it look like a princess room, more of a goth/victorian/french/romantic to keep my current theme consistant.
59  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: Hanging paper lanterns from dorm ceiling? on: March 09, 2007 10:47:57 AM
 Wink i'm pretty much jealous lol i would have rather had polka dots on mine! lol and yup. i'm not sure how to use those eyescrew things either, i just screwed mine right into the wall and they held up just fine. but make sure that you place them where you want them the first time cause it will leave hole and you can't put the screw back in that same hole because of the material thats usually used for crumbly ceilings but i can't remember what the name is.

When I lived with my parents in an apartment we used to have that same ceiling stuff and I too wanted the hangy paper lanter things. While I did not personaly use the 3M hooks I would not recommend them plainly because they are a type of tape and that crumbly stuff like to come off on anything. What I did use were these:




They are called Round ceiling hooks. Cheap and they work. : ) hope I was of some help! : )

Mine were pink and I hung them too low and my boyfriend (now husband) who is really tall kept hitting his head on them.  Grin
