1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Chunky Scarf! on: June 12, 2007 04:08:16 PM
So I've been working on a scarf for a while. 

Wait, let me rephrase that.

I started a scarf around Christmas last year and didn't have time to work on it while I was at college, so I just finished it.

It's sofy and fluffy and thick and I like it a lot Smiley

It was originally a present for someone, but I haven't seen her in forever, so I don't know what it's for now.  Hmmmmm.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / To sell? on: January 28, 2006 12:35:21 AM
I've been toying with the idea of selling my jewelry for a while... Since I've gotten my ears pierced, earrings have been my main thing, but I want to get back into making other jewelry.  Eventually, anwyay.

Anyway, I was wondering how people got started selling their wares.  My stuff's pretty simple for the most part.  I didn't think too much about selling until my friend asked if I could do a custom order for her because she wanted to give them as christmas presents.  Not my best work, but it did bring in money.  I'm trying to figure out whether it would work on the internet or not, though.  Suggestions?

And, something totally different, but while brainstorming some designs, I came across a daaaarling shell pendant with a salmony-orangey-pinky design on it, and I thought, "Now that's what I call summer!"  I thought gold chain would be nice... which reminded me of something: Isn't gold a deal-breaker for a lot of people?  Should that stop me from trying to use gold?

Thanks for every and anything, guys!   Cheesy
3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Lucite...? on: September 24, 2005 09:41:00 PM
Hey, craftsters!  I was looking around at some beads and found some lucite things that I want, but I think I'd need to put a hole through it to use it.  How would I go about putting a hole in lucite?  Actually, what is lucite?  Could I just heat up a needle and poke through it?  Thanks in advance!   Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Springy, Flowy Skirt to Dress? on: April 23, 2005 11:48:47 PM
I was looking at this thread (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31766.0) with a pretty, flowy skirt.  I have one sort of like it, and I've always thought "this would be such a cool dress if I could make it so the middle panel was tighter around my waist..."  The problem is that I'm not too experienced with sewing yet, so I don't know if my theory will work.  That, and I wanted a bit of feedback before I actually went and made it.  So do you think that this skirt could successfully be a dress if the upper panel was like an empire waist's top and then the next panel would hit the waist line, and then the skirt bit came out from there?  Thanks for any feedback~!   Smiley  - <3 (ooh, how emo Tongue)
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Skirts for the hopelessly big-legged... on: April 03, 2005 06:19:46 PM
I've always been a girly girl at heart, and now I'm getting sick and tired of not being able to wear cute things because I think that skirts make my big legs look bigger.  I'm just starting to sew, but I'm hoping that by summer, I'll be a bit more advanced, and if I don't understand something, my sewing fiend mom could probably help me Cheesy  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks in advance  Wink -Karin <3
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cubes, Buttons, and Gummy Bears, oh my! (earrings) on: February 13, 2005 05:09:41 PM
Yesterday, after taking the *bleep*ing ACTs, I decided that studying was not a good idea for the rest of the day... and what else would I do but make earrings on a Saturday?   Cheesy  This is my actual first post of the "see what I did!" sort, so please cut me some slack if the picture doesn't work or, if it does, they're crappy  Lips sealed

The first 2 are random glass cubes that I painted over with glitter nail polish... the third is, obviously, a cluster of buttons.  It's for a friend, but the glue I used at the top didn't dry clear so I might have to do it over... and the last pair are actual mini gummy bears Smiley  -Karin
7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Converting Shoes... Help please! on: January 17, 2005 12:03:46 PM
Hi, everyone!  I'm a newbie here... and I think I found this forum on a good day, because I really need some help and advice...
I have some jazz shoes that I need to convert into boots Sad  (It's for the Nutcracker... I'm doing the Russian dance).  The shoes look something like the one at this link: http://www.discountdance.com/image/419x450/dn980l.jpg.  I was thinking about sewing black fabric around the sides and back, then putting a snappy thingy at the front, ad have the top be elastic for a quick slip-on.  It has to be pretty easy to put on (quick costume changes are a killer).  My mom and I are trying to figure this out... please share any ideas!   Smiley
