1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Nerd Headwear on: May 30, 2008 01:34:51 PM
Long story short, boyfriend found a red beret, we found some cheap pin backs at a closing Hancock Fabrics, and I have some Shrinky Dink skill. So ta-da!

A UNIT beret a la Doctor Who.

a close up!

2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Adipose Plushie! on: May 30, 2008 01:23:53 PM
A very awesome person in the crafty_tardis community posted a template for sewing an Adipose plushie which I became OBSESSED with when I saw the first episode of this season's Doctor Who. Mine was definitely not as good as the original poster's, since I'm not as used to using a sewing machine. But here are some pictures of mine at my blog, along with one of me being super excited about it.


Mine came out boxier, so it looks more like a tofu plushie. And I couldn't sew the fingers and legs as detailed as the template, and also had to hand sew the bottom shut. And used regular thread not the recommended embroidery thread. It's what I get for doing it in the middle of the night. I think I'll make another one eventually.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Does this work for curvy girls? on: May 30, 2008 12:50:17 PM
So I've been looking at all the recons here and through some communities on Livejournal and have noticed a similar style keeps popping up. It's sort of a tank top/overalls shirt that sits below the boobs and has straps. Here are some pictures of what I mean. (Sorry if this is anyone here! But I really like the shirts)

But every time I see people make this shirt, they're...well, skinny... So what do you guys think? Workable for curvy girls with bigger boobs? Or will it look completely ridiculous? Have any of you made similar tops? Bring on the discussion!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Shrinky Dink Fusion? on: May 20, 2008 01:32:33 PM
Did a search, didn't find anything...

I've been wanting to try fusing the Shrinky Dinks aka melting the layers together. The official SD instructions says to do this, they need to be placed in a glass or Pyrex container. I only have 1 Pyrex dish and I don't like mixing food containers with craft containers. Plus it won't fit in my toaster oven. So is it okay to put it on a sheet of foil?

Any fusion advice/tips?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / What to do with (sadly) too tiny tops? on: May 13, 2008 02:07:01 PM
I need help from all you amazingly talented people! I've put on a bit of weight the past couple years. But I own a bunch of cute tops and screen printed t-shirts that I'd still like to wear in some way. Trying to wear them like I did when I bought them isn't an option because the only thing worse than gaining weight is feeling uncomfortable in your clothes.

So... I was wondering if you guys could point me towards the right direction. I need ideas for spring/summer clothes to make from these shirts. Or ways to alter them nicely to be longer or looser. I've found a million and one ideas cutting down and sewing big t-shirts into cuter ones, but not really any way to reconstruct smaller clothes into better fitting ones.

Help please?
