1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / bleach stencil on a comforter? on: July 12, 2011 11:38:46 AM
I need help pimping out my old brown comforter for college

I'm thinking of bleach-stenciling something on it, but it still seems boring

how easy would it be to dye it? or maybe some sort of acid-wash?
keep in mind it's pretty big (barely fits in my washing machine)

ideas please c:

2  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / healthy-ish treats for Halloweeners? on: October 27, 2009 02:22:39 PM
I need ideas for a somewhat healthy, non-messy treat to hand out on Halloween.
So, obviously, something somewhat durable- no icing or anything.

When I say healthy, I don't mean HEALTHY healthy, just something that won't make your teeth fall out and you have a seizure on the first bite. Basically, I don't want the ingredient list to have nothing but flour, sugar, oil, butter, and eggs. For example, sweetened with applesauce and stuff, not just crap poured into a bowl and cooked.

So maybe, some sort of cookie, bar, or candy? Or something not sweet? Or maybe something sweet and salty- like peanut butter pretzels?

Any ideas?
3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Book recommendations? on: September 23, 2009 02:10:21 PM
I'm wondering what some of your favorite art books are?
Specifically about painting with acrylics, but, lets just have a general craft books thread. Know of any good ones?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / GAH, I STILL suck at making collars! on: July 09, 2009 06:33:44 PM
The bane of all my t-shirt recons so far has been that stupid collar.
No matter how many pretty ideas I have in my head, they are all foiled by the laws of physics.

I've tried cutting off the collarband and leaving it raw (too loose and sloppy), leaving it on (too tight!), and adding contrasting trim (that one turned out the most awful.) The thing is, I'm not even too terrible at sewing the rest of it, its just that the stupid collar makes it unwearable.

Has anyone else felt taunted by them? How the crap am I supposed to get better?
Oh god, is my neck oddly-shaped?!  D:

EDIT: Ohmygosh, I just thought of something! Should I like, use darts or something?
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a slouchy bag pattern (anyone?) on: May 17, 2009 12:41:16 PM
I'm sorry to post this here  Cheesy
But I think I've been looking all weekend for this bag and I haven't been able to find it.
This is the bag

I'm looking for the pattern either online, for free, or easily accessible. It seems like a pretty common design. I've seen lots of bags like it, but for some reason I just can't find the right one.

Any help?


After looking through 50 pages n_n" I've found what I'm looking for.
This bag looks just like the one I want...
Tinafish's tutorial Seems pretty similar... the only thing is, I want it to be way more round and short and less long, and I want the strap to be wider at the base, if you know what I mean. Any idea on how I could do that?
to be honest I don't even understand that tutorial too well.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Help for the uncreative crafter? (metal lunch box) on: February 22, 2009 02:22:17 PM
So, I was at Wal-Mart the other day and I saw a stylin' metal 'the Hulk' (the green guy, not the wrestler) lunchbox, ofr $2.

Unfortunately, I haven't really been able to... tap into my creativity? I'm thinking of painting it, but I cannot for the life of me just come up with a design out of thin air...
I might decoupage it, but I don't really have any ideas of what to do it with.

Any ideas?  Cheesy I want to have a lunch box I can take to school. Lunch is so expensive.
