1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I made a tie skirt too. on: January 30, 2005 07:01:19 AM
I made a tie skirt for my friend for christmas. It is really long. At first it was curving all over the place, but I took it a part and now not so much.


2  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / I need help with how to knit with the knot... slipknot. on: January 24, 2005 06:12:07 PM
I know how to start and make the first row and actually knit, but I can never knit with the slipknot. I just don't know what to do with it. I always screw up and start over... what is wrong?

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bouncy Ball Skirt on: June 07, 2004 09:04:35 AM
The other day my sister let me borrow her old sewing machine since I was DYING to get one. I have no patterns except a Reniassance dress I have already made. I decided to make a skirt with fabric I got from a thrift store or $1 for 5 yards. I have nothing to match it but I am VERY proud for it being my first thing from scratch.
Excuse the VERY dirty mirror.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Speaker Lamp? on: May 30, 2004 10:13:35 AM
I have some old speakers (from the 80's I think) that would look absolutely spiffy with a lightbulb inside shining out. Since my life revolves around music this is PERFECT! Let me know how I would go about doing this.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Record Holder? on: May 29, 2004 04:58:47 PM
Yesterday my stepmum gave me her old record player. I have always wanted one and I finally got one. Anyways. I bought/have lots of records (33's and 45's) and I want to construct something to hold them since they fall out of my notebook...

Any suggestions of something I could make it out of?
6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Elizabethan Era Dress on: April 28, 2004 06:45:28 PM
Today I completed my first REAL sewing project. I need to get batteries for my camera. Then I will post pictures.

I got the pattern from the Wal-Mart. I also got the fabric there. Lets just say, the people there have no clue what they are talking about.

This being my first REAL time using a sewing machine I was stressing out about screwing up. I called up my super talented sister and she came on down and gave me some guidence and did half of the Bodice.

I learned how a pattern works from my Step Grandmother. I know  I know... I shouldn't have started with such a complicated project, but I had to do a project for school and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do something I love. SEW! And create something out of nothing!

I will post pictures soon!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Easy Cardboard Earring Holder on: April 15, 2004 07:47:34 AM
Yesterday I went thrift shopping and I got 3 pairs of great earrings that I absolutely loved and would hate to loose. I usually loose all my earrings. Even when they are in my ears, I have one earring in right now and three holes.

Since I didn't want to loose these earrings and realized I will get even more to match my outfits that I should make an earring holder. I look all over my house for a frame but there was none to be found.

 found an old cardboard box and I cut two of the sides off and put some fabric over it and VIOLA! An earring holder.

For those people that love to experiment I would like to report that Heat-N-Bond works VERY well to put fabric on cardboard. Put it on the cardboard first though.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Trumpet Case Bag? on: April 11, 2004 06:33:10 PM
My trumpet case got run over by a school bus last year. So it has no handle or anything. Does anyone know of anything I could do? Like maybe a bag with some padding?

Maybe kind of like a quilt bag. Anything! Maybe a back pack kind so I can be super stylin' and everyone else it being annoying and I have a backpack! I see it now... Anything come to mind where I could get instructions?
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Inverted Stencil on: April 11, 2004 03:58:04 PM
I made a patch the other day with my name on it. I was going to a ska festival weekend and my bag needed spicing up.

Stencils don't like me and don't work that well with me. So I put paint on the stencil and used it like a stamp. For my tastes it turned out well.

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / "Cat Gate" on: April 07, 2004 06:06:09 PM
This is how it works.

In the spring and summer I open my window so the cat can go in and out as he pleases. My stepmom doesn't like it because it lets bugs and flies in. And this we call "Cat Gate"

My question is. How do you think I would go about making a screen type thing with a way the cat can go in and out. Kind of like the doggie doors except in a window and for a cat.

That is the idea I have I just don't know how to go along doing this other than Duct Tape and my stepmom didn't like that idea.

Thanks in Advance!
