21  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Possible Homecoming Nightmare? on: September 21, 2008 03:08:29 PM
So I'm going to my first homecoming...with a boy.  My dress is pretty and orange and strappless, my shoes are my favorite ever.
Ready for the problem?
I have swimsuit tan.  not little spaghetti straps...these are about an inch or two wide.  So is there a cheap way to fix it?  Or is there something cute and simple I could make to wear with my dress? 
Please help me guys!
22  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Violin Case help? on: August 11, 2008 03:52:58 PM
So I have a boring violin case that looks like this
except its all black.  I really need to put something on it.  I'm a bit of a punk kid, so i was thinking about putting a bullet belt stencil all down the shoulder strap, but aside from that I'm lost!  HELP!

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Franzi(Burda Style) Vest! Large Images! on: July 17, 2008 06:39:20 PM
So my older brother had given me this awesome shirt with this Scene-kid looking printing on the front.  I've been saving it for something truly awesome, so 3 weeks later it hits me.  Make a vest!  So i grabbed the free pattern at BurdaStyle.com and got a'cuttin!  The design on the front of the tee is now the back of the vest(Did I take any pictures?  No!) 
I made a simply modification to the pattern.  the back is two pieces with a seam down the back.  But I didnt want to cut the design, so instead I trimmed the seam allowance(5/8ths inch) off that particular side of the pattern and it worked perfectly!  Also, the size chart told me to make myself a size 40 and that seemed like too much, so I made a 38.  It was still too big, so next time, I'm making a 36, which makes sense.  Also I was too lazy to add buttons-too afraid of trying to make button holes)so I used a sweet pin instead.

It was very simple!  Every newbie should try this and if they need help, PM me!
     So If you make one without a lining, you could make a size 40 with just a size Medium guys tee!  But trust me.  I hate making linings and in this project, its totally worth it!  Do it!!!

What are you waiting for?!  Get Craftin'!

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Cute Toga? on: June 10, 2008 08:55:47 PM
Ok, so theres this great band called Flatfoot 56, and at Cornerstone festival, they have a theme for they're midnight show.  This year, its a Grecian theme, so my friend called me up and asked me to make her a toga. 
So I need a toga that:
                           Isn't very likely to fall down
                           Looks cute
                           Has a skirted-ish bottom.
                           Is easy to run in.  Hello?!?  Its a circle pit!!

TIA guys!

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pleat Reinforcement? on: June 10, 2008 10:50:18 AM
So I'm working on my second pleated skirt, and seeing how easily pleats come out of denim(even stitch enforced!  Aghh!), I was wondering if there was, like, a cheap way to fix this problem.  My parents suggested starch, but doesn't that still wash out?

        The fabric is 100% cotton.  I'm recycling my boyfriends Tripp pants that he decided were "too red."
        I'd love it if the solution was something in my cabinet, because i have no money and no good stores around here, but if there is something that would work for sure, please let me know!

26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Cornerstone Festival 2008 Craft Along? on: May 23, 2008 02:20:11 PM
So I know that there are Craftsters out there that attend this awesome music fest, so why not meet up and get crafty?  grab your needle felting, knitting, crocheting, hand sewing, embroidery, or skip the crafty bit and just come to meet other craftspersons! 

If anyone is interested, we can work out, like, times and locations(Main Stage?  Food Court?)


Lets do it~!

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Sleeve Help For Dress? on: May 12, 2008 06:09:26 PM

30  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Angel-esque Design For My Brother!(Gordo Images) on: May 11, 2008 08:48:45 AM
So I got this design on deviant art.  I made myself a patch on some black cotton weave and guys, bont even try.  stick to doing stencils on knits.  Unless you're really smart.
Anyway, his came out a ton times better than mine.  The paint wouldnt smooth evenly(I gobbed on a ton!  The top left probably has the most paint on it than anything else and its still so light!  it didnt bleed either, so I'm totally lost!), so it got this weird marbled look, but its ok coz we decided we like it more this way!

Action shot(Hes actually a very attractive boy, i dont know why he made this face)

In review:
Deviant Art Dot Com stencil
Freezer Paper
Black shirt
Tulip fabric paint.

You can make tupli look good if you smooth it evenly and thin-ish-ly.  If you gob it on like puff paint, it will crack and chip off.  So you can make it look legit.  Use one of those little foam brushes.
