1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Wooden plugs for BF on: September 06, 2009 01:08:38 PM
My boyfriend has those stretched out piercings in his ears. I love how they look but I'm always shocked about how much he has to spend on ear jewelry (I've never seen a pair for less $40). He's away right now and I miss him and I was bored so I made him some!

I bought a little wood saw($1), a toy with a wooden handle about the diameter of his piercings ($1). I carved them into a shape that should sit nicely, sanded them down and finished them with some flaxseed oil ($8 for a big bottle). It took a few hours but cost me less than 10 bucks!

The lighter pair turned out much nicer but I like them both! Now I just hope they fit...

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fabric adhesive? on: January 30, 2009 09:49:54 AM
Hello Craftsters! I have been lurking for years and finally decided to register because I have a fabric dilemma.

I just bought this awesome 70's-looking dress at thrift sale. It's not very flattering though, so I'd like to make a few changes like shortening it, shortening the sleeves etc. The problem is, I don't currently have a sewing machine and I'm afraid of ruining it if I hand sew it because the fabric feels quite delicate (some kind of really light cotton maybe...I don't know the tag is cut off). I don't want to be ruining it by having to redo crooked stitches every 5 minutes. So I was thinking..if I was to cut off a few inches from the bottom, could I just use that fabric glue/ paint, instead of sewing it? I've also heard of fusible web, but I'm not sure...what do y'all think??

Thanks Smiley
