Hey Gals,

I'd really appreciate some input

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Boys and their toys...a nice case/pouch/holder for all your shinny wrenches on: February 18, 2005 11:58:44 PM
Yes I know you've all been waiting for this one!

If youre like me you've got lots of loose wrenches that deserve a home.

Here's how I solved the problem. I used some tough fabric. (Canvas) I measured all the widths and heights  of all the wrenches and calculated the width and height of case. I then cut the fabric, surged (i actually used the zig-zag sitich) the edges, sewed the slots in,  and sewed on a thin piece of fabric to tie the case closed. Its self explanatory, check out the pics.


4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / crafts for crafty boy on: February 03, 2005 02:58:50 PM
hey guys.

i've made a few things from craftsters. All of them were for women. So i had to give them away. I think it's time for me to make something for myself.
Anyone know of any super cool  crafty ideas that are for guys or are of a unisex nature?

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / small punching bag on: December 31, 2004 12:40:39 AM
A headache bag is a small light and reactive punching bag that is suspended from an adjustable nylon trap on top and a bungee chord on the bottom.  Its a great cardio workout and it also works on your reflexes.

Heres my material list.
Some leftover vinyl from my car interior project. I would recommend using a lighter weight fabric. Vinyl is thick and hard to work with, and it also makes the bag heavier so it reacts slower.   
I bought an old gym bag at the local thrift shop and used the zipper, the strap and the plastic triangular pieces that the strap clips into. I thought this would be easier and cheaper than trying to source all the parts
The bag dimensions are 8" diameter and 9.5" long
The tops and bottoms are 8 half circles w/ seem allowances, add 1/4" seam allowance in the center. (See photo)

The side is 9.5 x 2-1-1/8 with : seam allowances.
Along the inside of the bag there is a nylon strap. This nylon strap gives the bag strength. And the plastic triangular pieces that get sew into the strap provide for a way to hang the bag

Step one.
Sew a zipper onto one of the top circle halves. This enables the flipping of the bag right side out when done, and also to contain the stuffing
Step two
Sew loops on both sides of the internal nylon strap. Make sure to insert the plastic triangular pieces before you sew. The strap length after you loop it should be just long enough to exit the top and bottom of the bag. (1 or so on each side)
Step three
Pin the nylon strap in between the top circle halves, and then sew
Now do the same for the bottom halves. Make sure that the length of the strap inside the bag will be the same as the length of the side of the bag. (9.5)
Step four
Next sew the side square together so that if forms a tube.
Pin the top circle to the side and sew. Do the same to the bottom.
Step five
Flip the bag inside out and stuff.  I used the slippery stuffing material. I forget the name of it.  Its probably better to use standard sponge material. But I was having some difficulty getting it.
Step six
Add a bungee cord on the bottom and an adjustable strap on top. 
You can hang your bag from a hook in the ceiling and use a 20lbs weight on the bottom bungee hook to keep it in place.
