1  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: To make my own WPI..... on: February 22, 2012 05:42:45 PM
I realize this post is kinda "old" now, but I made myself a wpi tool out of an old prepaid card. Its really awesome because its so compact. I like to recycle.
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Looking for inspiration/tutorials to use empty cigarette boxes on: June 10, 2011 07:15:17 AM
I was thinking maybe you could cut the logo part off and make a cool collage of the logos (and give it to a friend or someone who does smoke?).

Honestly, its kind of difficult to think of what to make with these, but I have wondered the same thing. But I don't smoke, but I have many friends who do. Though I've never sold art or paintings (or anything like that), I have sold some homemade ashtrays to some of them. I think maybe someone would want one *shrug*.

I thought the pain scale was pretty cool.

And I really like the suggestion, but she wears normal clothes to school. But thanks for your help.
5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / What to Embroider? on: March 02, 2010 04:11:28 PM
Hey, ya'll, this is my first time posting in the Needlework section. I'm a semi-new embroider-er. I don't embroider very often, but I'm still in high school, so I need to fit it in between school work 'n all.

That being said, this year, I'm a senior (I dunno if I should say it or not but eh, this is a crafting website) and I'm taking this "Medical Occupations" vocational ed class. While I'm new to the whole voc ed thing (my classmates and I get a bus ride to the bigger school in town for voc ed), so is my teacher. The last year teacher of Med Occ (as its called) retired and so I think ya'll know where I'm headed. I wanted to give her something nifty maybe for her room to remind her of how cool we are and my mind shifted towards embroidery. The only problem with embroidering is what to make? I don't wanna give her a pillow, that's kinda random. I was hoping maybe for some suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.

My teacher is actually a used-to-be RN turned teacher. I could only think of a coffee-cozy but that doesn't seem very personal to me. I figure something cool for her room would be appreciated.

Anyway, thanks!

Thank you guys for your imput, I really appreciate it.

I agree, it kinda does look like pillowcase material. I was also kinda thinking... just about getting like button up shirts or something and making those the skirt. And maybe not making the skirt perfectly around but making it kinda like a pixie skirt. Do you guys think it'd still look good?

THANK YOU!! Cheesy Oh and Merry Christmas! Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Deliah*s dress... on: December 24, 2009 06:46:41 PM
Okaaaaaay so I got the latest Deliah's magazine in the mail and I found this really nice dress I want.

I don't usually order from them but I do gotta admit, I really want this dress. The only problem... of course... is the price. Its $39.50 (without taxes and shipping).

So... instead of spending MORE money I don't have.... my thinking is to save up my money and progressively work towards getting the dress made from Goodwill and other nearby thrift store fabrics. But... how do you guys suggest I go about doing it?


My thinking is to take a grey tanktop and other various shirts for the bottom and middle band. But I've never done this kinda thing before.

Help is much appreciated!

Cheesy I honestly LOVE your clothes, I think they're awesome. And I think your kinda cute too. Smiley I kinda feel bad for you though, being the only girl at the table. Cheesy I'm the only girl in my math class... i feel bad for me. Cheesy Anywho, keep up the good work!! *thumbs up*
9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Condom Wrappers... on: July 24, 2009 05:33:23 AM
Okay, recently, my boyfriend and I have ummm.... replenished our stock... we went to Meijers and bought some big packages... Embarrassed But when we took them out to look at them, I loved the packaging on some of them.

I really want to reuse them (of course washing them and all first), although I'm not entirely sure how I should. The only idea I had was to make change purses out of them. Once my sister comes back (probably in a few days) I can post pictures of the wrappers if anyone wants.

*shrug* I'm new to modifying clothes. My only suggestion is tear it up and sew it back together.

Sorry I can't help much in that department.
