1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Yoshi on: November 01, 2009 09:14:41 AM
One night after drinking lots of alcoholic beverages, I decided that I was going to be Yoshi for Halloween and announced it. After sobering up, I had no clue how to proceed.

The end result

Slightly better shot of the head

Everyone was shocked that I pulled it off, I wish I had a better picture of the back to show the spikes and the shell.

The main body is a sweats set from target on sale, bought an extra pair of pants to make the tail and to cover the head.  The head is an old baseball hat that i put in a box and filled the box with the expanding foam, Great Stuff.  Once it was dry, carved the head out and covered with fabric. The tail is a leg of the pants cut at the knee and the existing waist band with the extra white fabric rounding out the tail shape.  It was easily rotatable and removable so I spent all of Friday at work wearing this, and had no problems in the chair or moving around.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Mario Onesies on: July 29, 2008 07:55:53 AM
I believe I'm posting in the right place, but as I haven't crafted in posted in forever... Right now I have no craft space at all, and with a baby shower that came up, I decided iron-on transfer paper would be the perfect thing to bring some geeky-ness in.  I knew for sure the dad would be happy with less pastel blue and green, didn't realize that mom was really into Mario.

the picture isn't very good cause I was rushed, but theres Mario & Luigi, Yoshi, Raccoon Mario, flying Goombas, and Bowser
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Reading Rainbow - Recycling, Clocks, Poptabs and Record Bowls on: May 15, 2007 12:09:26 PM
So since I'm sick today and I only get 8 non-spanish channels, 3 of them being Boston, New Hampshire and Maine PBS stations.. I watched alot of kid shows.  Today Reading Rainbow had a show on recycling.. first showing about making compost, then using old potatoes from a book to make a huge potatoe crop, and lastly, it showcased a store in NY (sorry don't remember the name) that only sold products made from recycled products.  Things like old hubcaps and fanblades becoming clocks, poptabs strung together to make a small pencil case (much like the woven belts and braclets but folded on itself and closed with a snap), animals made out of cans and record bowls.

They actually took the cameras to the studios of the gentlemen that made the clocks and the record bowls.  While I watched it I kept saying in my head  'OMG crafster should so be watching this!'  The guy that does the record bowl pretty much seals the record label with a thing clear piece of plastic on both sides.. and it goes in this high tech oven,  Sealing the paper and the hole.  Then he has a wooden  mold that is bowl shape with a vacuum inside to form the melty record to the wood.  It's pretty awesome..... But there was alot of money into that machinery there.. and we can do it with our own ovens! Albeit.. ours doesn't take like 2 minutes.. but still...

I tried to find a copy of the show so I could link it.. but I failed on that account.  Just thought you all should know that Reading Rainbow probably supports craftster! Smiley
4  UNITED STATES / New Hampshire / To anyone in New Hampshire on: January 14, 2007 10:00:01 AM
I suppose this is the best place to put this, but i've been lurking on your board for awhile, and i absolutly love watching all these awesome skiens.  I just wanted to know if there is anyone in new hampshire on this board, or northern Mass, or southern Maine that spins.  I just want to watch, see it actually happen.  And of course, pepper you with questions.

I know it's probably weird, but i think it would be totally awesome to spin, but i'm alot less scared of the melted beads fumes than I am of spinning. 

eeek.. I just got caught on the computer when I promised my fiancee that I would be cleaning the house with him Tongue

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jean Skirt on: January 08, 2005 06:18:14 PM
i made two jean skirts, both of which i took a pair of jeans that fit around the waist, but they were wore out between the legs.  so i ripped them up the inside seam and sewed in the first one a triangle of jean and in the second skirt a triangle of black satin.  well 2 triangles really.  one for the back and one for the front. 

the first one with jean triangles....

the second with black satin triangles...

don't mind my sisters messy room/bed.. the light was burned out in mine.
