My kitchen is a spider web theme, and I thought it would be cute to put small glow in the dark spiders on the ceiling. The ceiling is textured, and even though the spiders are hollow and extremely light, they won't stick! The only thing I've tried is bluestick (?) or that poster putty stuff. I want to avoid using tape since it would cheapen the look.
I want to turn my drab countertops into something glamorous! So I'm thinking painting them high gloss black and then affixing A TON of those little craft mirrors on top. But then I'm stuck, how do I protect those little guys? Do you think an acrylic clear coat would do it? Or something else? Help me!
Ok, so today I was at a garage sale and there was a box of old cassete tapes. I've always wanted to make something out of the things and today after I bought the box I was sitting in my room figuring what else I could do. Then it hit me.
Now, the thing is, I've disassembled the tape (RIP Paula Abdul's "Spellbound") but now I can't decide how I want it to open and close.
I've come up with a few solutions :
1. A 15 inch zipper to go around the parameter 2. A button/snap of some sort 3. A rubber band.
Any ideas on how I could do #1, or other ideas in genera?
So, I am looking to make a stuffed animal of some sort....but I also want it to be something of a purse. How do I go about doing that? Do I make it first, stuff it, then gut it and insert the lining and the zipper? Thanks for the help.
So...I hate carrying purses.... BUT I have so much stuff in my pocket nowadays that I have been forced to resort to carrying one. So I decided that I'd just make a cute enough purse (or 4) to satisfy me. I used my own patterns for all of them, especially the owl purses.
Sooooo....the first one I wanted to be small, and reflect my interests, hence the "fight like a girl" theme....I was going to use turpentine to get the pattern on, but that didn't work so I had to use a sharpie and felt....*sigh* I wanted to show some kung fu chicks with the saying "I Fight Like a Girl" on the front I thought it was really cool since I do karate and kobudo! I used a rodeo fabric with muslin lining, zipper in back.
These next two are little owls I call "Bubblegum Owlet" and "Blueberry Owlet." The have a little zipper under the head, which is just a flap. They are made out of this simple gray quilting fabric, and the accents are felt. The string is just yarn I braided together '^^
And the last one is just because I like to play DDR Quilting fabric, felt, drawstring cord, and zipper in back. For the white arrows, I just sewed them in.
I made my own patterns and I can give a tutorial if you want. So what do you all think? [/color]
Hello all, this is my first topic here and I'm just wondering if anyone had any tips for me.
I'm planning on making two things - Jack Skellington's Bow Tie and a Duct-Tape Corset.
I'm planning on (for the bow) making a single piece for the bat wings, turning it inside out and sticking wires in them and then gluing a clay bat head to the front...but does playdoh bake? And for how long?
For the corset, I wanna make it lace up the back and have some sort of pattern up front. Any tips on how to actually make this? As in, measurments and actual construction?
