From one big girl to another, I must say, you got it going on!  Nice work...I might have to "borrow" an idea or two from those.   Grin

Thanks much, Hawk.  I'm planning to hit the local bluegrass parlor and store this weekend to take measurements...I'm going to average a few different ones and go with that, I think.  I'll be sure to factor yours into the equation!

Mixing math and crafts...oh yeah, I'm a CRAFTNERD! Roll Eyes

I was just wondering about this...my current sweetheart is a bluegrass musician and I really want to make him a strap. 

I wonder if someone could post up the lenghth and width measurements of their favorite guitar straps.  That would be a good start.  I would sneak in his case and measure myself, but he lives in another state right now, so that'd be a bit of a long sneak! Roll Eyes 

I have one, but I have never liked the length, so I don't want to model it after that, and I don't want to just add length randomly.

We have some lucky musician honeys!  Craftster girls rock!

What about...and this is gonna sound crazy...a nice spin on some overalls?  Like, make them from some nice red velvet and put a truck on the bib or something.  I just love little boys in overalls...too cute to be true!

Crap...I just threw out a bunch of stuff...some I wish I had back now. 

But, if I may offer an idea, I've been hitting the flea mkts and thrift and buying grab bags of broken costume jewelry and random stuff like that. These grab bags are FANTASTIC for crafty folks like us...drop $2 on a bag of junk and turn it into all kinds of decorations, clothing embellishments, jewelry, etc.  If you're looking for something dirt cheap to dress up your dull duds, and spark your creative juices, I can't recommend it enough!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: bead stringing material on: February 25, 2005 12:50:12 PM
I've been beading since I was old enough to get string through a bead, and I've tried pretty much everything, but I keep coming back to good ol' fishing line.  It's cheap (so very very cheap  Grin), sturdy, and comes in an array of thicknesses and even colors.  Of course, it's not right for every project, but 8 out of 10 times, it's the perfect thing.  I find that weights between 6-10 lb. test are best for beading, but, I have been known to use line as heavy as 18 lb. test for projects that need to be durable.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do you sign your clothing creations? on: February 25, 2005 12:42:11 PM
I'm brand spankin' new to the world of making clothing, but am a long time craftster.  Up until now, my main craft has been beaded jewelry, so I was really excited to try a medium I can sign to let the world know, hey, I made this, fool! Grin

I am nearing the finish line on my first creation (a heavily hand-beaded skirt made from jeans and vintage calico) and I was wondering if anyone has any neat ideas for signing or tagging your unique clothing creations. Huh 

I was thinking of beading my initials along the bottom hem, so they will show up, but not be glaring. Roll Eyes

Ha! That's fantastic. 

I did something similar in high school, I tore the head off my rocker barbie, painted it up with glitter paint, dyed the hair and wired it to a key chain.  I quit carrying it, though - people made way too big a deal about it. Angry

Fantastic design...what I like to call a KISS (Keep it simple, silly) design...can't be beat!!!  Cheesy

It's really functional too...I'll use it like crazy!
