191  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: 2 skirts! :) (a tulle one, and a jeans recon :) ) TULLE SKIRT TUTORIALON PAG on: July 29, 2007 10:35:59 PM
So I just tried to make this... but with white and burgandy tulle... and the bottom of a tank top for the underskirt... did not work at all. Perhaps this was because I don't have a working sewing machine currently... or maybe it was just the colors and the fact that I could see through the tulle very easily. overall, horrible attempt. Next time, sewing machine and black tulle.

Yay for old threads!

If you aren't going to be very rough with it, try hotglueing it. I tried to sew a rug like that, and I got about 5 inches in before I was beyond bored with it. I personally haven't tried glueing it yet, but someone did it on here and said it looked fine, and if it falls apart you can just re-glue it.

We've just covered our hideous couch with a canvas paint drop cloth, and wrote all over it with sharpies. I'm not sure that might be as mature as he might like, but it covered up the ugly green couch with yellow and pink flowers on it. Also, look for your local freecycle at freecycle.org. We got most of our furniture from people giving stuff away or from families.

Good luck!

If you can sew, make a petticoat! it only takes 9 yards, but it's a start.


Now, 48 yards of ribbon!
195  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Kitten Harry Potter cloak! on: July 20, 2007 04:14:05 AM
So we're going to the HP7 book release tomorrow, and since my kitten is only 4 weeks old (abandoned) we're taking him with us.

I can't have my kitten out of costume! So I made him this cloak. It didn't turn out as well as I'd like, but it'll be good enough, since I doubt he'll wear it long, guessing from the modeling session. Anyways, here's the cloak on the ground.

And here's a few action shots!

I'm hoping to make a tie too, but I'm not sure how well that's going to turn out, since my sewing machine is currently non-op.

Mattress + body pillows + wall = great cheap couch. That's what we have right now, the futon is currently taken apart and put in storage, it kept breaking. We have a little nook in the wall in the living room that a twin mattress and a end table fit perfectly in, so I just put body pillows around it and turned it into a daybed. It works great.
197  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: Anyone made a fabric-covered memo board with criss-cross front? on: July 09, 2007 02:05:10 PM
I did a really easy, but kinda bad quality one. I didn't use a sewing machine, so it's held together with duct tape and bad hand sewing.

I just took a piece of cardboard, a towel, the color fabric I wanted, some ribbon, and some buttons. I folded the towel in half to fit over the cardboard, covered that with the fabric, and then duct taped it to the back of the cardboard. then I put the ribbon across the way I wanted, taped it to the back, and hand sewed a button at every crossing.

not something you can move all over, but it works.

Having wood and a staple gun would probably work much better.

Whenever we go to the beach, we just bring home a gallon or two of ocean water... and then just rinse with that. I'd imagine that you could find the ratio of salt to water somewhere and either make a spray or just dilute the shampoo with it.
199  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Re: Milk Crates on: July 06, 2007 11:39:52 PM
Careful... I've heard that it's a $1000 fine for stealing milk crates... and they can't really prove that you didn't steal it. but the container store sells unmarked ones for 10 bucks.
