1  Help with a bead pattern in Beads: Discussion and Questions by sewincbm on: July 10, 2010 01:22:19 PM
So i haven't post anything here on craftster in a loooooong time, and normally just spend my days looking around here, but i have a problem that i am hoping someone might be able to help me with.

i had this beaded headband, but it was really really old (i got it from a teacher about 10 years ago, and she had had it for who knows how long), and the elastic was super super worn out. to the point that i couldn't use it as a headband because it kept falling off my head. so i had a brilliant idea that i could buy some elastic, take the headband apart and redo it. 

i took some pictures, studied the headband, and then cut it apart. only now i can't get it back together!!

after searching online, i found this: http://beadwork.about.com/library/weekly/aa070698.htm, but i can see it's not the same pattern. i'm trying to find the exact pattern, so that i can use all the beads, and it will be about the same size it was before (it fit my head perfectly before the elastic died)

does anyone have any ideas on how i can recreate my headband? i really love it, and would love any help you can give me!

4  Reusable Status Symbol in CHALLENGE 20 ENTRIES by sewincbm on: August 05, 2007 02:52:13 PM
here is my entry for the challenge!

its ivory outdoor canvas with brown fabric paint, brown piping and brown nylon straps.
and i think you can tell it was a play on the Anya Hindmarch "I'm not a plastic bag" bag.

(sorry this one is so blurry   Roll Eyes

you can see here 2 of the 4 lines on the inside. it looked a little empty so i added it for decoration!

(this was the first time that i did piping it wasn't that hard at all....i can tell i'll be using piping more often from now on haha!)

it is fully lined so its sturdy and is about the exact proportions of the original bag, but i didn't use any interfacing so it can crumple up to a fairly small size. its sturdy and i can't wait to use it at school! it will look so cool in my bike basket  Grin!!

thanks for looking!

5  Re: Project Runway Dress in Designer Clothing Homage by sewincbm on: July 19, 2006 12:00:36 AM
i so love this dress!
i mean like totally love it!

i was thinking about this dress as i was watching PR last night, and decided to take another look at it, and the design and such.  what i was thinking, after looking at Kara's site for like an hour (okay, not that long, but it was way too long), was that there is no seam in the skirt, and that it was a solid piece.  but i don't know, because there is no shot of the back of the dress, to see if there is a seam between the top part and the bottom part.  
i know my image has a lot going on in it, i was a little hyper with the color.  basically the maroon line in the image on the right is the seam, and the up and down pink lines are where the ties would be sewn.  and of course there are the sleeves and the binding all around the dress, but i don't really have anything new to add what other people have said about them.

what do you guys think?  does it make it overly complicated? (i have a tendency to do that sometimes).  i don't think i am going to be making this dress for a long time to come(my machine is down, and i'm off to college in less than a month), but i wanted to share my ideas on it, and my love of it!

6  unicorns in love in Stenciling: Completed Projects by sewincbm on: February 10, 2006 12:31:48 PM

my love, so let me tell you the story before the details...so looking around on craftster, i found a REALLY cute shirt with a little pink unicorn on the side, being inspired i went to my other love, GOOGLE and found a image that was perfect for me. i did everything really ghetto, first i printed and laminated the stencil, no tracing involved, then with the help of my sister raided the basement for spray paint, i had colors in mind but we only had gold and black spray paint. heres where it gets ghetto. so i taped down the stencil, took my shirt outside (mind you 8 at night in Feb.!), backed up the car turned on the headlights and sprayed my little heart out. having the lackluster of only gold i again went on a search for paints, in the garage, i found white and red house paint, which were pretty close to frozen but some stirring cleared that up. anyways, with the shirt on the driveway, headlights on and everything my shirt was born. i used the flat stirring sticks to drizzle the two house paints on top the already gold shirt. my sister and  i had a blast just doing it! anyways i let it dry overnight which was too long in my view! but its AMAZING!!And now that its dry it smells like paint fumes.   im going to wash it and i hope that helps but I'm terrified to do that!

the stencil itself, i thought my mom was going to flip when she saw it but she just laughed her little butt off

the sleeved which are awesome in each of there own special ways!
