1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Australian Badge Makers on: August 19, 2011 06:29:51 AM
Hi all,

I hoping I could call on your crafting knowledge! I recently purchased this Badge-a-Minit badge maker: http://www.badgeaminit.com/114benpressy.html

However I am starting to think that this was a poor choice as I am finding buying replacement components near impossible unless I purchase them from overseas and then the shipping is exorbitant ($150+).

So! What I was wondering is:

1) Does anyone know where I can purchase 1.25" BAM components WITHIN Australia?
2) If not, does anyone have a better alternative to BAM that is more Oz-friendly?

I feel like I'm just adding yet another to the growing pile but, as I haven't posted anything in a while, I thought I'd put it up anyway.

I made this for my sister's birthday last week.

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Looking for Rocket Ship Fabric on: August 06, 2007 04:46:54 AM
Hi Everyone,

I'm a huge sucker for Rocket Ships (and space in general) and have been looking for a rocket ship print for quite a while now with no luck.

Does anyone have any (or now where to buy some) that they'd be willing to trade for?

Please, make a nerd very happy!

This is Eddy (Eddy Son) the Lightbulb, a birthday present for a friend.

Strangely enough I couldn't seem to find a lightbulb pattern so I made one up. My first, albeit a relatively simple, amigurami.

What do you think?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Advice for a Newbie Sock Knitter on: April 13, 2007 03:19:52 AM
Hi there,

I just made my first pair of socks ... well, my first one sock and I really need some help. They won't fit!  Cry

I've done the cast off too tight (even though I used a needle a few sizes bigger). Is there a special sock cast off that I don't know about? Or at least one with a bit of stretch.

I'd REALLY appreciate your help!
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Help defend the Kindness of Strangers! on: April 12, 2007 01:54:04 AM
Hi there,

If this is is on the wrong board or is against Craftster rules, please let me know and I'll take it down right away.

I had a long (omg so long) discussion with a friend of mine about whether or not someone could/the benefits of being comforted or cheered up by strangers. Basically, she was telling me that you you unable to truly be kind to someone if you didn't know them.

SO! In an attempt to prove her wrong (don't ever get into an argument with me lol) I've started a little project for which I need a few volunteers.

I'm sending out two blank books - one local and completely random, and one global and semi-planned) - in which people can write letters, draw, offer advice etc. Basically a variation on the altered book/journalling. I'm sure the idea has been done to death but still, I thought it would help prove my point.

If anyone is interested in helping me defend the kindness of strangers and filling in a page or two, I'd love it if you could PM or email me. It would require you to actually give me your address (which I promise only to give to the person before you on my list), and forward the book on to someone else. I'll try to keep the distances between you as close as possible.

My cousin's collection of CPDs is slowly increasing, to the point where I have no idea which is which anymore - which, of course results in a look of utter disapointment from her.

Anyways, she has asked me for some new dolls clothes and its so hard to say no to that little face. Does anyone know where I could find some patterns?
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Tiger Lily on: March 21, 2007 01:20:17 AM
I got my very first sewing machine for Christmas this year so when my cousin got invited to a Peter Pan dress up party I jumped at the chance to make the costume ... then quickly realised that I had no experience whatsoever when it came to clothing.

Still, I had fun and was pretty pleased how with how it came out! She looked so cute!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Quick Peter, Tiger Lily needs your help! on: February 13, 2007 05:56:45 AM
Okay, so I don't really expect Peter Pan to come to my rescue, but I would appreciate some help from anyone else Smiley

My four year old cousin has been invited to a Peter Pan costume party and I, being such an enthusiastic crafter, jumped at the chance to make her costume (yes, literally, I jumped out of my seat and scared those around me!)

There's just one problem ... I've never actually made any clothes before! I've been sewing for about a year now and haven't had any unfixable problems, I kind of make it up as I go along. But I really don't want to mess this up. It would make me look a little (okay a lot!) foolish if I couldn't come through with the goods after making a spectacle of myself Cheesy

Anyways, what I'm thinking is that for the dress (the part I'm having issues with) I could make like a long t-shirt style tunic, with a sort of belt to pull it in in the middle. Would this work? And if so, can someone tell me the easiest way to make this? I think I'll be okay, I'd just really like some confirmation.

10  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Crafters/Quilters Journal on: February 06, 2007 07:22:15 PM
Hi there,

I'm thinking of doing a journal to put pictures of all my projects in, sort of along the lines of a big quilters journal but I have no idea how to go about it, or what to include in it.

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. And if any of you have made one I would really appreciate a picture or a description cause, sadly, I'm lacking a little in inspiration *sigh*
