Brief Description:
(Please forgive my "old west" speech here. I really got into it!)
My "misbehavin'" son of 4 years old got glasses around Christmas this year and as the summer is upon us, I'm realizin' we need to stash 'em every once in a while. Reckon' with swimmin' and such he needs to take care of those dern thangs.  Wink
I took a hard glasses case we had layin' around here and whipped it up somethin' fierce!
(I know I'm going to make LOTS more of these as we should have one for the car, his room, grandmas house, in his backpack, and so on and so on.)

Project Picture:
I got the Capt. Mal image from a T-shirt design.


I used scrapbook paper leftover from a different project and drew with the trusty brown(coat) sharpie.
Then Mod Podged 'till the cows came home! Made it look nice 'n shiny!!!


To finish off my "not so shiny" edges, I hotglued thrift store grey bias tape.

---RESEARCH PROJECT PROPOSAL ---
Project Name: Days For Girls Liners
Team/Ninja: Team Fantasy
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques used, materials using, plan of action, expected timeline, etc.)
A couple months ago I  bought a 50 yard roll of flannel to make liners for http://www.daysforgirls.org/ which is a charity that supplies reusable menstrual kits to girls in third world countries.  Frequently girls in these countries have to drop out of school once their period begins-due to lack of supplies.  I have sewn many items for the group before but it has always been with colored flannel.  The flannel I have is white so I need to dye it, then cut and sew.  (The girls hand wash the items and hang them out to dry and colored flannel liners hide stains and look more like just a normal washcloth making it less taboo for them to be drying on the line)  I have not dyed much in the past so I need to learn how to best do it.    My goal is to dye 10 yards of fabric.  And to sew 5 yards of liners up by July 1.

Working on researching dyeing today. Will purchase dye and get it dyed by the end of the week.   Next week I want to have all the cutting for the 5 yards done. After that is sewing time. The liners are 8 1/2"x8 1/2".  I will be sewing as many as I can with 5 yards.  It should be A Lot.

---RESEARCH PROJECT PROPOSAL ---
Project Name: Exterminate Skirt
Ninja: Wyked - Geekdom: Doctor Who
Brief Description: (how it fits the requirements, pattern/techniques used, materials using, plan of action, expected timeline, etc.)

I have never crocheted any clothing before, and as most crafters do have PLENTY of yarn. Smiley I had a great idea for a Dalek-inspired skirt so this is going to be my first research project.
The Daleks are one of the Doctors most feared enemy, as they are difficult to kill unless you kill them all.
No estimated timeline as of yet. I plan to research various skirt patterns available to get an idea of the how-to, and try to write my own pattern from there. I do have some sketches of panels and thought of possibly using a chevron pattern to connect them and form a skirt. I also have some elastic to use, which will make the fitting a little easier!

Hope you have enough information for my proposal, there will be a lot of firsts in the making of this project so I expect a ton of frogging to be had! Cheesy
