Hi. I'm going to have a dress made for a dinner/dance thing. (prom-ish event) I am hoping to make one with the fabric that looks like the two below.

What kind of fabric is it?

2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Help! Joint 18th bday party for my best friends! on: January 28, 2006 10:48:30 PM
Hello craftsters.

My two best friends are having their birthdays 5 days apart in February, the week after Valentine's Day.
I am thinking of planning a joint birthday party for the two of them on the weekend.

Something fun for a small cosy group of friends (around 8-12)? Any suggestions for games, food?
The budget is abit tight cause I still have to buy presents for them.  Embarrassed
Thanks!  Wink
All suggestions appreciated.
3  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / [ACCEPTED] Asians' City Guide on: September 26, 2005 10:28:04 AM
Has anyone started a thread on requesting for an Asian city guide? There's only one for Japan..

I live in Singapore, and I'm sure there are many of you out there from the Philippines, Indonesia, China, Thailand...so if you see one, please send me a PM or drop a reply here. Thanks!

If not, we can start requesting here.  Wink

That's all folks!
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Farewell party for my school seniors on: August 05, 2005 09:21:45 AM
I'm planning a farewell party with some of my friends for the seniors (both guys & girls) in my school who are retiring from my extracurricular activity. We have a tight budget but we want to make something fun and sentimental for them. Any suggestions?
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How much are you willing to spend? $$$ on: March 20, 2005 09:16:58 AM
Hello,  Wink
Just a general survey to all craftsters out here on this site (and out of curiosity):

What is your budget when going shopping for clothes, and what kind of prices will make you want to rather make the thing yourself than purchase a ready-made clothing/accessory?

I know we sometimes do make our own stuff because it's more original and unique and we can do whatever we like to it, but does anyone intentionally buy something to go back and reconstruct it?  Undecided

Okay, that's all.  Kiss
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / A Knitting Beginner's question on: March 17, 2005 10:18:48 AM
Firstly, I apologise to being a super noob knitter. But I'm here to learn, so be merciful okay?  Tongue

I have a few questions here: 

What's the difference between knitting and crocheting?

I have a metal rod slightly longer than 10cm with a hook at the end of it. It definitely does not look like a knitting needle, but I have no idea if it's for knitting or crocheting. What is it?

Is it possible to knit without two needles? Or with just one hook?  Huh

Lastly, I can't figure out knitting instructions in books/websites. Is there a better way to learn (without a human teacher) ?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / How to transform old stuff with ugly logos into cool new things on: January 26, 2005 08:34:36 AM
Does anybody have any idea how to transform old stuff with ugly logos into cool new things?

I have this red plastic drawstring backpack with an ugly faded logo right in the top center of it. I figured I could use the back part where it's plain and the lower part of the logo. Should I cut it all up and put them together by duct tape? (cause my sewing machine can't go through plastic) Or should I leave the bottom since it's already together and cut out the logo?  Undecided

Please post any ideas, and if you have any experience of taking out ugly logos from bags, caps, clothes etc post here too. Thanks!

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Japanese translation required for beading instructions! on: January 05, 2005 11:43:59 AM
Hello all
Does anyone know Japanese here? I found a good beading site where it teaches the basic techniques with cute graphics but I don't understand what it is saying, especially the fourth part's instructions.  Huh
If you do know Japanese and wouldn't mind translating into good English, please help..
Thank you.

Here's the link for you:
