1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Need help with funny teen couple costume ideas! on: October 16, 2006 01:36:51 PM
So me and my beau decided to go as a Duke Lacrosse player and the stripper. (Yes, I am not black, but you get the picture.)

He has multiple jerseys in Duke blue (he actually plays lacrosse, so no problems for his.)

But my costume poses quite a problem, because I want it to look like a stripper's outfit, but not AS skanky. I was thinking about buying a sexy generic Halloween costume, and pulling it down to reveal a bra strap or something.

Anyone have any ideas on how to tastefully pull off the stripper? (Yes, ironic)

Last year, my fellow crafters, me and my beloved boyfriend went to our Halloween party as the cow and the milkmaid. Alas, we had to buy costumes, which were scratchy and hot, but pulled off our costumes nonetheless. Take a look.


Anyways, I was wondering if any of you had any ideas for a slightly off-beat, yet hysterical couples costume idea that would be original? Thanks!  Grin

Actually, Roman men wore the pillow-esqe tunic under their actual toga, so this guy would look AWESOME if you layered the toga over top of it. Smiley
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Would These Sell? How Much? (4 Images) on: September 20, 2006 05:58:50 PM
Well actually, I sell some around my school to curious people. I've also been considering starting an online store.

My biggest perk about my purses over others is that I'm a neat freak and that nothing gets sticky(unless you use it A LOT. I've had the origami wallet for a year and it just started to get sticky because I seal everything.)

I am also up to total customization, with names, school logos, flags! (I'm working on a British flag purse right now!) anything they want. How do you guys think that'll fare with customers?

I have been making duct tape/card/Starburst wrapper/oragami paper purses and wallets for over a year now and are interested in selling them online. I need an honest opinion from all of you guys on whether or not you would buy them and how much you would be willing to pay for them? They take between 30 min- 2 hours, depending on how detailed they are.

Here are some pictures...

Oragami paper purse with a little pocket on the inside.

Oragami paper wallet. Inside has 6 well-lined credit card slots. It's my personal wallet. Smiley

Woven red and black duct tape bag with rose on side.

Tote bag made for my friend, named "Erin" coincidentally. It's about 15" x 12" x 3" (length x width x depth.) I loved making this- It's the biggest thing I've made so far.

So what do you guys think?

I'd definitely be into making a tute. Do you want one of the entire bag, because I'm actually planning on making another one out of some other origami paper in a few days.

Well, it's been a while since I've been on Craftster, and I def. haven't shown off any of my cute new items! This is the Summer Origami Purse. It's made out of blue origami paper, clear duct tape and white duct tape. I think it's one of the sweetest looking bags I've made. I'm not sure if I should sell it or for how much. Anyone got any ideas?? Thanks  Tongue

So this is the purse front. It's a small purse, but it can hold a wallet, cell phone, lotion bottle(small!), lipgloss, all the necessities!

The inside. There's a little change pocket on the side. Pardon the hair, 70s couch and jeans. They all want their 15 minutes of fame.
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: knitting needles on: January 09, 2006 07:20:36 PM
If you think about it, the diameter of the knitting needle makes the length and width of your stitch. It can affect them a lot on projects that HAVE to fit, clothing, hats, etc. If you go up one size, you could end up with several extra inches because your stitches were too wide.

I hope that makes sense. Smiley

Uhm.. I don't know what you want to add, but links should be REALLY easy to add. If you can't do it by yourself, PM me and I can see if I can help. I'll do it for free if it isn't too labor intensive.
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Need to earn $3000 by April, need quick and easy purse ideas to make and sell on: January 01, 2006 08:44:50 PM
I know this is hideously off-topic, but do you live in/near Chesterfield? If so, I'm in that delegation and going then too! I'm raising $2000 for my trip too, so I know how it feels to be tight-pressed for cash.  Lips sealed

I'm making card purses with fabric interior and suede handles to sell at the local Bridge center. When I get a laminator, I can make them look really professional and sell them for about $20. $20 is a really good idea because if you think you can make 100 things and sell them, then thats $2000, not subtracting supply fees. It's a really easy way to set up goals and ideas to fund it. If you made some really cute purses too, you could raffle them off. ^.^

Another idea, not purse related, would be no-sew fleece scarves, blankets and pillows. If you sold them now in the cold weather and offered a few different fleece designs, they would sell like wildfire. Here's some links.

Scarf- Just cut strips of fabric long and wide enough to be a scarf!
