12  UNITED STATES / Maine / "Crafty hipsters" in Southern Maine? on: March 05, 2005 04:53:04 AM
I was just reading some of the boards and getting insanely jealous that I do not have a craft group.  I almost cried, until I realized I could do something about it rather than mope over my misfortune in being born in a state of generally art/fashion-unconscious people.  So is there anyone out there (on here) that lives in southern Maine?  Please, I'm gonna be driven out of my mind by covetousness!

I'm really not as crazy/desperate as I sound; I'm exaggerating for comic effect.  Thanks  Smiley
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fabric legwarmers? on: February 27, 2005 10:49:31 AM
I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for making legwarmers out of fabric.  Clearly it has to be something stretchy and on the thicker side.  I would love to knit or crochet these, but that kind of thing doesn't seem to come out well for me!  I'm a disaster at increasing/decreasing.  Anything anybody ever come across that they could point me toward?  Thank you thank you!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / prom dress (no one had the same one!!!) on: February 25, 2005 04:15:38 PM
I just thought I'd post my prom dress from 3 years ago; it is getting to be that time for juniors and seniors everywhere, and new ideas are always good, right?  Either way, this dress was a McCalls pattern (3315), and I had great results with it.  For inexplicable reasons, there was an extra piece for each side of the top which just didn't seem to fit, so my mother and I ditched those pieces and the top came out perfectly anyway.  Top and bottom are separate, the back laces up, and the skirt has box pleats. 

this last one is for color alone
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / originally by Calvin, revamped by Cyndle on: February 24, 2005 02:20:01 PM
This started out as a basic knee length jean skirt, which fit kind of weird because of the slits on each side.  It's thrift, so I didn't feel too bad about chopping it up.  The only pain was that I kept having to cut it shorter and shorter (after I had stitched it, lots of careful seam-ripping) because it was just not flattering when the jean part was too long.  I left it unhemmed because it looked too funky for a hem.  Plus the skirt is huge and all pleated, so I didn't feel like hemming anyway.  You can't really see it, but the skirt is pleated; they resemble box pleats.  Forgive me for the lack of ironing.  Enjoy! 

I LOVE batik!  Smiley  PS, It's not really dots, they're little squares of color. . .
16  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / punk crochet wrist warmers on: January 23, 2005 09:40:58 AM
I was bouncing around online a little while ago trying to find some arm or wrist warmers to buy because I wasn't too confident in my ability to stitch them.  Then I remembered I was a poor college student with skeins and skeins of yarn up in my room, so I grabbed one and whipped off a wrist band and improvised the hand part.  Not too bad, I don't think; kind of speaks for inspiration and improvisation as prime ingredients for creating!

it's not the best pic, but it's hard to see stitches in a pic with black yarn anyway!
