1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Tron Bonne & Servbot on: September 30, 2011 06:58:05 AM
Hokay so for Halloween my beau and I have decided that I'll go as Tron Bonne and he'll be a servbot (he did not go for the idea that he would be the Gustaff Mecha and carry me around on his shoulders all night).  For the mecha I'm thinking I'll just get one of those pop up hampers, cut it to my waist and paint it/add appendages with paper towel rolls etc (other possible materials?).  For the servbot costume I was thinking just jeans and paint a shirt.  Maybe paint some tissue boxes yellow and add to his shoes.  For the face I think I'm going to just get a yellow/gray hat.

I was just posting in case anyone had any ideas for a) a better way to make the mecha/arms and b) an alternative for making his costume a little more recognizable/less ridiculous.

He was also thinking about going as Akuma, which I might just do because it would be super duper easy and I could spend more time on my costume.   Wink

Tron Bonne!

Thank you for your impending wisdom!
2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Egg Overload on: July 15, 2010 09:56:37 AM
So I somehow wound up with 2 dozen eggs in the process of moving into a new apartment.  I'm completely inexperienced with cooking and I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas on what I can do with this plethora of eggs.  Thanks!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / H Scarf on: March 28, 2010 01:18:20 PM

I made this for my sister.  I knitted the scarf and then crocheted the H (for her name - Havi) onto the scarf.  She managed to undo the H by fiddling with it, so I'm scared I may have done it wrong.  Tips?  It was pretty while it lasted. =/
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Superman T-Shirt on: March 28, 2010 01:16:10 PM
So the t-shirts were on sale at Michael's so I decided to turn my pillow project into a shirt for my best friend.

I just used fabric markers for the design and backed it on a bandanna and sewed it on!  I used embroidery thread because I think it looks cool. :]  I think that might mean it won't stay on as long, though. =/

Sort of blurry.  It's not very exciting but it's the first time I've done something like this!
5  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween Cupcakes on: October 23, 2008 08:20:26 AM
I had too much fun with these!  I found the paper foils and decided I had to make chocolate with orange icing.  I even bought some of those sugar sprinkles.  :]

Cream cheese icing, chocolate cake - they were delicious and between me and my roommate gone in about 2 seconds!
6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Halloween-loving College Girl on: October 23, 2008 08:11:48 AM
I'm in college, broke as hell, and would like to do something to have my room a little Halloween-y. I've been picking and hanging leaves, and my mother donated a pumpkin to the cause.  I was wondering if any of you clever crafters had any cheap craft ideas for me?  Thanks!
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Basic Stuffies on: July 22, 2008 10:43:45 AM
I was doing some cleaning and I found the first stuffed animals I made!  They were great first projects, and definitely an easy present.  I just couldn't stand the thought of not sharing them, even if they're kind of plain.  I think they have a bit of character.  :]




All lined up!

Sorry for the stray hairs!  My pets are everywhere.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mermaid Mirror :] on: June 29, 2008 05:50:40 PM
I recieved this as a present from a dear friend of mine.  It was my birthday and high school graduation two weeks ago.  She made it and her husband custom framed it.  It's so gorgeous I thought it was worth sharing!  She said she wanted me to be able to look into it in the morning and think I was underwater. :] 

The whole deal.

She said she wanted me to always remember to be an individual.

Some more coral.

Now aren't I the luckiest girl on the planet?
9  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / 12 Year Old Boy on: June 18, 2008 09:34:26 PM
I'm doing a craft swap with a woman who has four children.  The three girls should be pretty easy as they are all under 11 and I'm comfortable with my stuffed animal making abilities.  However, she has a 12 year old son who I just can't for the life of me figure out what I should make!  I remember being 12 as feeling very adult so a stuffed animal is dismissed as being too childish.  It's a favorite color swap and she is into browns and blues, although I'm sure she'd be willing to tell me his favorite color. :]  Anyway, I'm a bit pressed for time as I'd like to sign up for a new swap so I just thought I'd throw this out here.  I can crochet, make jewelery (not so useful), do SOME sewing, decopage (sp?), mosaic, and needlepoint.  I will be asking my partner, but I'm hoping you guys have some ideas!  I'd be willing to try something new, too, if I had a tutorial.

My dad has started going to the gym and I'd love to make him a gym bag for Father's Day.

01. Any suggested tutorials?
02. Any hints for working with water-proof material?  I never have.
