1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / metal star that you hammer into place? on: June 26, 2010 04:28:26 AM
A few weeks ago I bought a leather bracelety cuff thing and it has this metal star attached to it. I've been thinking that I'd like some of these stars to attach to stuff. 
So it was this star with a metal post on the back of it and to attach it I'm pretty sure she made a hole, stuck it through and hammered the back of it (I guess it has a lip or something) flat and hey-presto all done.
So my question is what is this star thing called? I've searched for studs but I get those stars with little pricky bits on each of the points that look like they might not last very long. I've tried searching for "metal star hammer the back of" and shockingly enough didn't give me what I need.
Any help would be appreciated! thanks

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / [DS Case Construction Question]confusing question. on: January 27, 2010 03:38:11 AM
This weekend I was trying to work out how to make a ds cosy for my sister. So like I usually do I size things up with paper before I get cutting fabric.
I wanted to make it with depth...like a box with sides as well as a top and a bottom bit.
I drew it all out with measurements on paper and then had a thought.
Do I need/should I/would you/do you... cut all the pieces out individually or cut it out as one piece (as if you were going to make a paper box but with fabric.
I would obv. have to top stitch parts but if you were cutting it as one piece would you top stitch the edges that are already joined OR would you just do the ones that NEEDED it
does this make any sense?
Thank you for your time.

that is soooo cute! I love it!
I keep seeing camera cases around and they're all ugly and boring. I am so inspired by your cute quilted case of glory!
Do you mind sharing and telling me what fabric you have used? They are too adorable for words.

No one else seems to have said this so let me be the first; this is INSANE.
Do you have any hair left on your head?
I would have pulled mine out if I was doing this.
Over christmas I was thinking of crafts to keep my nephew and neice entertained on the run up to the big day and the idea of using wool to make a picture was sent straight to the crazy file as I realised how much time/patience/ability it would takw to pull off something decent.
Anywayanywayanyway my point is this; this is AMAZING, it has wowed my socks off. Well done!!
I adore it. Not only is it a wonderful concept and picture but your colouring and 'painting' technique is wonderful. xoxo

wow, the first thing I crocheted was really small! Well done. It's cute! I say no legs, that way when you become a world expert crocheter he won't run away and hide if you sit him next to...lets say an ami true to life giraffe or something =)
I also suggest the you tube tutorials.

I think it depends on how you wear it really! I'd wear it as a slouch hat because I love slouch hats...because they are slouchy...I just like saying the word slouch. Well done, it's lovely! xoxo

When I clicked on this I was thinking "oh no, go on tell me SOMETHING ELSE I need to buy." Which always happens because the more crafting stuff you buy the more you realise you need to buy!
This is SO nifty and I am super, super happy that I have pastels in my house and that this is such a simple and effective method.
Thank you, you little genious you! xoxo

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / pin stuck drama! on: November 03, 2009 02:24:51 PM
Dear Aunt/Uncle craftster genius people.
So there I was sewing away happy as Larry as usual (over the pins like a fool) and I heard a little tink noise. uh oh. Stray pin. So I moved the project and saw the pin hovering dangerously close to falling into my machine and then TRAUMA, it fell. I took out the bobbin bits (as I do to clear the fluff) and its not there so I presume it has fallen into my machine in order to wreck my life.
I'm still new to sewing and I was just wondering... is there some magic way to get it out, is it okay to take it apart further or should I take it directly to a repair shop without passing go or collecting 200?
I've only had my machine a year and for many months at the start of that I was too afraid to use it, it's my first machine. Therefore, I know nothing about servicing it or anything like that, is this usually expensive? Will I be paying hundreds of pounds to get the pin out?

I have found a mangled pin that may have come out when I lifted the metal thing that you sew on
that lives over the feed dogs (sorry, I don't know what that is called). Would the machine still work properly if it has a pin in it?  I don't want to risk any further  damage by presuming the pin is found and all is well again. Should I take it to get looked at anyway?
