11  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Teflon foot for sewing hard fabrics on: May 03, 2009 05:01:58 AM
Before I spend lots of money, can someone please help?  i want to sew fused plastic and commercial banners on an industrial Singer.  Can you get teflon feet for industrials?  I can't find any in here in Australia.  With an industrial, is it even necessary to get a teflon foot?  All answers greatly appreciated - I have no idea where to start!
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / coloured crochet shopping bags on: March 18, 2009 04:37:28 AM
I'm so inspired by everything craftster user recycledcindy does. Here are my crochet plastic bag shopping bags, based on a recent pattern she posted. I love the colours available, and it's so much fun to do. Sorry about the photos - batteries running low, and I'm not the greatest photographer (no patience, hee hee)

This is my first attempt at crocheting a picture; it looks okay, I think.

I'm in love with granny squares!

Here they both are, ready to got to the shops.

Hope you like them.
13  ASIA / Japan / Fabric stores and crafty things in Tokyo on: October 19, 2008 12:55:14 AM
I'm very very excited, I live in Australia and i'm going to Tokyo in March 2009 for 5 days with my girlfriend and 2 teenage sons.  I looove Japanese retro fabrics, and craft books.  You have the most amazing books I've ever seen!. Can anyone recommend craft/book shops and things I need to see on my trip (apart from Ghibli Museum and Puroland - already on my list)
14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Banksy stencil xstitch on: September 28, 2008 01:11:59 AM
i am in awe of the cross stitch ninja, and found this link on her website and I'm sorry, I don't know what it is, but if you google it you'll find it.
My photo is a bit blurry, but i cannot believe that an almost monochromatic stencil can come out so good as a cross stitch.  I'm so inspired, I've been walking round the city taking photos, and working out how to do a cross stitch graffitti piece!
Here's my banksy, and sorry again that there's no link, but you can find it easily enough.

15  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plastic bag market bag on: September 28, 2008 01:00:48 AM
So I crocheted heaps of granny spquares from plastic bags, and couldn't work out what to do with them.  Crochet gals on the Crochet page suggested a bag, I found a really cool pattern on the crochetalong page, and here is what I made.  It took 127 plastic bags, and my fingers are still aching, but I loooove it, and its so strong.
16  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / the inaugural slightly twisted carft market on: September 26, 2008 04:45:41 PM
Do you need an oulet for your offbeat, retro and slightly kooky one of a kinds?  We are holding the the inaugural slightly twisted craft market in Warburton (1 1/2 hr east of Melbourne, very scenic, you can swim in the Yarra with platypuses) on Cup Day, Tuesday November 4.
Stalls are really cheap, $10, and it will be lots of fun - we have a dj, bbq and liquor licence, so we can sit in the sun drinking and crafting.
PM me or email scavengedstyle@yahoo.com.au for more info and application form.

17  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / amigurumi goth doll on: September 22, 2008 03:54:42 AM
Here's a little doll I made today for my sister.  Hope you like it, it was a lot of fun to make (and I was in such a bad mood, too)
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Plastic bag granny squares, but I don't know when to stop! on: September 09, 2008 10:05:19 PM
I've been playing with plastic bags, it's so much fun.  Here's a picture of some flowers I made:

and here's a thing - I don't know what else to call it, and I don't know what to do with it, but it's lots of granny squares crocheted together.  It's like a quilt, but not very practical!  Any ideas for a finished projected would be happily accepted!! Undecided

20  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES / cozy i made after an ironic fight with my girlfriend's ex-girlfriend on: September 03, 2008 04:37:40 AM
 ;)I posted this a little while ago, and then saw the challenge, so I think it's still relevant to enter.  I was at home sick, and everything hurt, and I cut myself on a tissue (had the flu, you know when even your fingernails hurt?) and I was thinking about an argument I'd recently had, and the whole world was against me. boo hoo!

So I decided to do something about it, while watching Oprah of course.  here's some pics of my (well my girlfriend's) crocheted vagina tissue box cover.  It's all pink and soft and silky and you want to touch it, and I had lots of fun making it. take that, ex-girlfriend!

hope you like!
