1  Peacock earring holder in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ktgotskills on: October 11, 2008 01:52:00 PM
After being inspired by a cute metal peacock jewelry stand at Urban Outfitters, I decided I could make my own Smiley

Sorry I'm just kinda holding it.. I intend to add ribbon or some sort of hanger thing (ideas?). I think I could use it for necklaces, too. Even if I don't end up using it for earrings, I like how it came out, period.

Painted on cardboard with acrylic paints.

2  First stabs.. beads and hemp (earrings!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by ktgotskills on: September 28, 2008 05:04:47 PM
I have FINALLY bought earring materials and started creating my own earrings!

I just got my ears pierced (also finally... I'm 19..) a week ago and cannot wait til I can start wearing cute earrings! I don't know how I made it this long without earrings when there are so many cute things I can hang from my ears!

I still can't change my earrings for 3 more weeks, when that time comes, I won't even know what I'll put in first!

Most of them are just beads and wire, the peace signs are hemp cord covered with elmer's glue to keep their shape. I was so proud of myself for coming up with that!

Now off to save up my money to buy more beads and trinkets!

3  what do you give a hippie for v-day? in Knitting: Completed Projects by ktgotskills on: February 13, 2007 07:41:34 PM
maybe i suck at gift ideas, but my bf is incredibly hard to find gifts for.

soooooo... at lunch on monday i finally decided to make him a scarf for valentine's day... and after picking up the yarn after school, starting a horrible attempt at 5 and working 3 hours for 2 inches of progress, i started at 8 last night, and have knitted at any available time until about 10 tonight.

then finishing and sewing and i now present:

hooray! and i am awesome.

and it was AMAZING and so much better than i even expected! man. Smiley

5  tips for following a dress pattern in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by ktgotskills on: June 02, 2006 05:09:57 PM
so this is my first time making an actual clothing piece by myself, and i really would appreciate some help. seeing as this is my first one, i don't know exactly what i'm supposed to do... normally i would ask my mom and have her help me but i can't talk to her anymore.

so i guess my first question is about cutting. do i just use scissors? pin the template on the fabric? i have a rotary cutter and a cutting board.. are they useful?

gosh. i have a lot of questions and know of no one around here who can help. i guess what i really want is someone who can answer my questions for me when they come up.

anyways. this is probably too random and all-inclusive for anyone to reply.

btw, this is what i'm using. (i'm doing dress C first, the black halter top.)

6  Short Prom Hairdos? in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by ktgotskills on: May 13, 2006 02:05:17 PM
So prom is coming up (next week actually, eek!) and i still have NO idea what to do regarding my hair. I like having my hair short but there are no cute updos! In the past i would just curl my hair and leave it down, but i really want to wear it up for prom. Hair's never been my thing, so I'm probably going to get it styled somewhere unless my friend does it for me.

I'm wearing a halter dress, if that affects anything.

excuse the awkward face.. i like making them. lol

7  simple star embroidery - help! in Needlework: Discussion and Questions by ktgotskills on: April 01, 2006 06:49:40 PM
can anyone kinda help me with the best way to go about embroidering a simple star? i tried freehanding but my satin stitch is all weird and not neat and has lots of gaps. i think it has to do with the haphazard way i went about it. if anyone could help me, i'd be really grateful.

all i want to do is something like this:

So I finished my hat... I plan on making another, one that'll fit better (I had to alter it a bit in the making.. i hope to fix those problems straight off next time)

my friend ryan says i look like a european gangster. he also understood that sewing is important and takes precedence over him. boy.. i sure know how to pick my friends!

9  clearance at joannes = new messenger bag (semi image heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ktgotskills on: February 19, 2006 04:03:29 PM
clearance sale on fabric @ joanne's = new bag for katie.

i used my own pattern.. pretty much just a box and a flap, i didn't add any pockets. i used sew-on interfacing and sewed it onto the lining instead of the shell. for the strap, i got black webbing for $.89 and used two overall buckles to attach it so i could adjust it and detach it.

you love my lion king sheets, right?

detail of the buckles.

i want to attach two buttons to it to hold the flap down, and i'm going to figure out a way to secure the end of the strap so it's not flapping around.

10  patching up jeans in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by ktgotskills on: February 12, 2006 04:26:43 PM
right, so this pair of jeans i have is a really soft denim, and i always liked them as my slouchy, kinda beachy jeans. and finally, holes are wearing through. i've got one on the knee which isn't that bad and i think i might just applique something on there, but today i found two more on the inner thighs. anyone have any suggestions on how to patch them up without drawing too much attention?

sorry about the crotch shot.. but the two holes are right below the crotch, you can kinda see them.
