Or a bong.

Or I know just who I would give one to.
Very creative.

This is the most awesome undergarment....
For the female adventurer.

I absolutely need one now.
Adding this to queue.

It looks absolutely fabulous and steampunk on you.

Lol, I'm afraid of swallowing a pin. So I don't put pins in my mouth.
I have, however, sat on a knitting needle. It was horrible. D; Drew blood. I mean, it's pretty much common sense but I wasn't thinking.

My mother is still teaching me to sew. And I'm still teaching me to sew.

I measure once and cut twice. =_=
I don't measure absolutely correct all the time.
Just getting random bolts of 5 yards of fabric instead of having a specific project in mind.
I don't prewash fabric.
I don't much pay attention to seam allowances (I'm pretty new.)
I tend to draw darkly in pencil on cloth.
I push the fabric the wrong way through the machine. I can never remember which way.
I leave needles in garments and projects and accidently wash them.
I leave my measuring tape, buttons and scissors all around instead of back into
I keep scraps of cloth in my sewing basket. I should clean them out and put them in my basket. But they're so handy.

Eeeeeeh I need to join.
My 50 gallon tupperware container is overflowing into another storage container.
My fabric isn't that bad yet. But I still need to push down in order to close the container.

Oops. My post got buried.
I asked a question about other people getting their work digitized. (About 3 pages ago.)
Posters said that they would have friends and family see it online if they digitized it.
What about having people in a wider online community see it? Or people looking for artists? Is that likely? Is it worth it?

I should hurry up and buy. But I want to just make sure.

Rackycoo: That's a really pretty page. o_o
26  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: What's a college craftster to do? on: July 31, 2010 03:01:53 PM
I went two years without my sewing machine.
I started to regret not bringing my mother's machine. A lot. Especially since I had to sew costume and lolita stuff: Skirts, shirts, and headdresses, all by hand. ._.

I am going to darn well try to bring my sewing machine. Maybe one day...

I didn't have a room mate last year. So blessed. I had a huge tub for yarn, a huge tub for fabric, and then another huge tub for everything else. As long as your stuff is out of the way and you sew during certain times, like not at 12am, you should be fine.
I was really lucky with my housing assignments. I always kept 1/4 of my room clean just in case.
Hopefully I will be lucky again. So far, I haven't gotten room mate assignments. I hope that I might get a tolerant room mate. There have been some horror stories just rooms away from me.

The handistitch, or quickstitch (handheld machine) wasn't that much helpful to my friend. Either she didn't know how to use any sewing machine that well, or it didn't  always give sturdy stitches.
Besides, the clearance between the bottom of the machine and the needle is very small. If you have several layers of fabric, it might not fit between. It's probably just good for stitching together two layers of cotton fabric.

I have twice as much fabric and yarn. My mom has a little old buick. I don't know how I'm going to get all my junk over in it! D;
I was thinking of mailing some stuff down.

But I used storage this time. So all my important stuff, television, lamp, rug, pillows, are all back in my college town.

TheGirlfriend: Yeah that looks pretty tight on you.
But that's a really interesting idea. What did you use to keep that standing, and how much duct tape did you use for that form?

All I've got is red fleece and paper sized pieces of felt.
But I wants to make it.

29  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Re: Reusing swap ideas? on: July 30, 2010 08:59:25 PM
Ok ok.

It's just that I haven't done my first swap yet. And I'm not terribly interested in organizing one at all, just participating.

I suppose I can wait or just start an interest thread.

Oh oh.
I always took off those metal bars because I couldn't bend them or seem to do much with them.
GL with your craft, sounds nifty. And np.
