That is so cool!  My younger brother and my older sister love Star Wars! My bother was came into the room when I was looking at this and he looked over my shoulder at the screen (a habit of his that annoys me so much! Tongue) a said "Wow, the Death Star!  Make that for me!"

For all of the Craftsters who live in Saskatoon, check out the Mendel Art Gallery.  They are having painting workshops on Sundays and on August 29, you can drop in and make and trade ATCs.  It's all free!  I got this info at www.mendel.ca.  Try and check it out.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Apparently, crochet is NOT my thing! on: May 10, 2010 09:57:21 PM
All right, I was at Wal Mart and I saw some really nice yarn for 60% off!  Of course, I grabbed it and bought it before I could think twice about it.  I don't knit or crochet, ect really.  I mean, I can do a decent knit and purl stitch, I can decrease, increase, cast on and bind off.  Crochet?  I can crochet a very long chain! Tongue  Anyway, I got home, and I didn't know how to use the yarn so I decided I would improve my crocheting skills.  I borrowed a crochet book from my mom and tried to make a square.  I ended up with a mess of yarn.  Then I tried a circle. . . and failed. I asked my sister, my mom for tips, looked for tutorials on Google. . .
I ended up using half of the skein before my stubborn self finally gave up.  In total, I made eight 'squares' and five 'circles'.  Oh well, I had fun, right?  Wink
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Re: Sewing Up Your Hair on: May 10, 2010 09:40:55 PM
I used to have really long hair. (like, really, really long hair) and it always got sewed into my projects!  I once got my sewing machine jammed because of this! 
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: The Ongoing Poppet-Along on: April 24, 2010 09:24:33 PM
I am almost done reading this thread, and I think I am prepared for my first poppet.  These are the things I need to know.  If you think I am missing something, please tell me!  

-Fabric should have a slight stretch, but not to much stretch, and it shouldn't fray to much
-Freezer papper is also known as butcher paper
-It doesn't matter what it is called, you just need a needle that is long enough to go through the poppet's shoulders and hips for jointing
-Don't worry if the poppet's head doesn't look good when it's not stuffed yet
-Don't worry if the toes look pointy and deformed, because they are supposed to be that way before you needle sculpt them
-Don't worry if the entire thing looks strange after you complete it, you are probably imagining it because all poppets look cute!
-For jointing, any shank button with a metal (not plastic, because it will break) shank works.  Teddy bear joints also work.  
-For jointing, try to avoid flavoured floss and waxed floss goes for stronger knots.  
-When jointing, pull the floss TIGHT
-Stuff it a lot
-Stuff it A LOT
-Stuff it A LOT
-The head won't explode in the oven when you bake the nose clay
-But the eyes will melt
-To turn fingers, tail, ect, you can use tweezers, straw+dowel, crochet hook, knitting needle or a pen
-There are many helpful links on the first page of this craft-along
-If you need help, your fellow Craftsters will be sure to help you!
-Ghilie is terrific for sharing the poppet pattern so freely!!!!!!!

Is this thing existent anymore?  It sounds cool. . .  (I'm new to Craftster, really, and I've never seen this board before.)
