1  Tapers, Gauges, Spacers, OH MY! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Shwiggles on: February 04, 2011 08:16:29 AM
So... I got sick of paying like 40$ for plugs and never finding anything I really liked at stores.  I made myself a few spacers, talons, whatever you want to call them... and I got a lot of good feedback on them.  This art show craft fair thingy is coming up, and it's only 30$ to get a spot in it.  

This is what I've done in just a few days.  I think Monday Tuesday and Wednesday, after work.  I still have to glaze them (seal them) and measure them to get what size they are.  I'm just eyeballing some of them from what I have, 0g and a 12g, and the rest I'm just making and will measure later.  I just wanted to share.
Some of them have numbers next to them because I made them specifically for someone to choose from, and those are the ones I think will be the right gauge, the 12g.

2  Vulcan in Halloween Costumes by Shwiggles on: November 01, 2010 01:08:34 PM

That's my real hair, I cut it for the costume. I thrifted the dress (reminiscent of the original series Star Trek women's uniforms.  I stenciled the Vulcan writing on it.

3  Borg Queen TREKKIES HELP in Halloween Costumes by Shwiggles on: August 06, 2010 07:08:19 AM
Ok, so I'm taking on a rather ambitious Halloween costume this year.  This is actually what I wanted to be last year, kinda, but didn't follow through. 
Anyway, I want to be the Borg Queen.  I have tons of old car parts, tubes, wires, etc that I can use for her head thing...
But I need your help.  Here are a few pics, if you have ANY suggestions as to how I can achieve this, they would be greatly appreciated.  I'm thinking a bald cap, and I have tubing for it, but the outfit... I don't know.  HALP!
Thanks in advance!
I basically just want some brainstorming from more crafty people than myself.

4  Skirt to shirt help please! BEGINNER HERE! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Shwiggles on: November 18, 2008 06:15:38 AM
So, I just got my sewing machine from my mom's and made a purse that actually turned out pretty decent for my first try.  At the same time that I bought the skirt to make the purse, I bought another skirt to make a top out of. 
Here's the skirt:

And this is sort of what I'd like to make:

The material is stretchy, like a t-shirt sort of.. it's cotton I believe (the tag is gone, used clothing...) so I know it's going to be hard.. I don't want to stretch the material as I'm sewing and make it all puckery along the edges... so, how do I do that? 
Can someone point me in the direction of an easy pattern.  The back doesn't have to have that opening, just thought it would be neat.  It might just be easier to not have it...
Any tips on how to do this would be GREATLY appreciated!

5  Purse from skirt, first real sewing project. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Shwiggles on: November 17, 2008 08:46:11 AM
I just got my sewing machine from my parents house, and was at the local Value Village and saw this skirt made from really nice material.  I thought it would make a great purse! 

It's not perfect, not even close, but I'm quite proud of it.  I didn't use any sort of pattern, just made it up as I went. 


Bottom, shows pleats

Full + kitty

It's not the best, the seams aren't great, and my sewing machine sort of gave out when I got to the straps, which are sort of on wrong... but I'm pretty happy with it overall!!


Inside pocket

with flap up

Now you can see the pleats

button detail from waist on the front flap.

Any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism appreciated.  THANKS

7  Cork board in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Shwiggles on: September 27, 2008 06:24:08 AM
We found a perfectly ugly good cork board in the garbage.  It had some marks on it, a stain.. you know the drill.  Anyway, I wanted it up, but not ugly, so I took a kitchen plate, a cd, a coaster, and a magazine and traced shapes then painted!

8  I have this dress.... EDITED in Halloween Costumes by Shwiggles on: September 25, 2007 09:08:11 PM
I bought this dress about two years ago thinking I would use it for Halloween this year, but never was able to think of anything really sweet to be with it. 

It's this nasty seafoam green colour, which I could dye.. and it's floor length, which I would change, and there are like, triangles of sheer in front and back.. hopefully you can tell what I mean in the pictures.

If anyone has any pictures to throw into their suggestions, that would be cool too.

In case anyone here was wondering what I did eventually end up doing to my room.  It's changed a bit since these photos, but it's a disaster and I don't want to take pictures of it at this point.
