1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I wanna be a pirate! on: April 08, 2005 08:38:37 PM

I just watched that movie with my family!!!!

(Plus, your jacket is awesome)
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / (pants to skirt) times three (times four photos of each) = 12 photos.... on: April 01, 2005 11:45:45 PM
So, I have gained weight since I bought most of my clothes, and as such, they don't fit me. So... I have a huge pile of things that I plan to re-make, and... here are my first three.
I'm sorry about the terrible dirty-mirror pictures. It was one in the morning when I was taking them, so.... not really anyone around to do my photos for me.
I left my feet in some of the photos, so you can see length and tell which part of the skirt it is.

My first one:
This was, once upon a time, a pair of Walmart pants. I think I wore them twice. I like it much better in this new form.

weird angle, but good color.




My second skirt:
Made from kid-sized pants that I got at a thrift store.
When I finished this, I decided that I really really didn't like it. I'm starting to like it a little more now, though. I am most likely going to give this to a friend of mine (if she wants it.)
The fabric started to scare me right around when I noticed that it was bending my pins....

weird-angle front view

weird-angle back view



aaaaand... the third skirt:
Made from some caprees (how do you spell that?) that I bought at a thrift store... (they look bad on me, 'cause of my short legs, but... the fabric is pretty!) and some fabric my mom had.

front... the triangles stick out kind of funny, 'cause the fabric is lighter than the red stuff

So.... yeah. That's kind of a lot of pictures.....
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Help with a business name? on: March 15, 2005 08:02:55 PM
Actually, that's a lot of the same thoughts I've been having. I really like the "Eclectic Threads" but two of my sisters and a couple of my friends had said that they didn't think I should use the word "eclectic."

"Grr, My Yarn Stuff" was suggested by a friend, and everyone else seems to like it, but... I had been thinking it didn't seem... professional.

Same with the "Creativitree." I like it, but at the same time I don't... *I* keep screwing up saying/typing it, which is probably a bad thing.

So... yeah. Thanks for your post. You helped me kind of organize my own thoughts about the names a little better, as well as giving me an opinion from someone who has no personal connection to me.

4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Help with a business name? on: March 13, 2005 08:29:16 PM
So... yes. I'm working on starting my own business. First: Some facts about me. I'll probably be selling mostly online to start. I crochet, sew, weave, knit, and may end up doing some other things as well. I mostly make hats, bags, and scarves, but... there is also the occasional skirt or other random item. "Tree" is a nickname that I've had for several years.

Here's the list of names I've come up with. The starred ones are ones that other people have said they like.
Eclectic Creativitree
Creativitree Designs
Eclectic Designs
*The Design Tree
*Creativitree Fashions
Fashion Creativitree
*Tree of Crafts
*Craft Tree
Eclectic Creativitree
Eclectic Fibers
Eclectic Threads
*Grrr, My Yarn Stuff

So... please tell me which of these you like best? (and why?) And if you have any other ideas of good names, I'd love to hear your suggestions.

uh... We have some snow.
It was melting a lot this past week, but then we got some back last night/today. It's not very deep, but there's still enough to cover the ground everywhere and stuff.

That's such a neat idea! I'll have to keep this in mind for if I ever have a pair of cargo pants die...

hmm.... maybe if I find some cargo pants at a thrift store for a good price I could buy them specifically for bag making....

*bes jealous of your bag*

since this thread has kind of turned into a crayon-usage post, i'll add my 2 cents.

when my sister & i were really little, my mom would get out the hotplate and put foil on top, and then lay some crayons on top just to warm them a little. then we'd draw w/ them, which was cool beacuse they gave out much richer colors and were slightly thicker than usual crayon drawing.

nothing too innovative or exciting, but i loved it when i was five Smiley

We had a similar project when I was little. My mom would tape a piece of paper on a warm hotplate, and we'd draw on it with crayons. It's pretty neat, because the crayon melts as you draw, so it makes a pretty cool effect...
