2  Sewing Machine Torture Devices? What is this stuff!? in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by moonunit426 on: August 10, 2005 10:32:37 AM
I bought a bunch of singer sewing machine parts on ebay and I'm not sure what all of these weird pieces are. If you recognize any of these items, could you tell me how to use them or what they are called so I can research them?

#1. I think this is some kind of covered hem foot but I don't know how to work it.

#2. This has a little ruler on it

#3. This one is similar to 2, but with a bigger ruler.

#4. And the big kahuna--this has some kind of sharp foot, a selector where you can pick one of "star, 12, 6, 1" It is possibly a ruffler foot? What a mystery!

I made one, but jordy-style. It closes with velcro, and the metal rings are just for decoration.

4  Sculpey insanity (dissolves plastic!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by moonunit426 on: July 04, 2005 08:29:27 AM
I went back to my sculpey supply because I was selling some of it on ebay, and I found that it had eaten away at my plastic storage drawers!! The clay had been sitting in these drawers undisturbed for about 2 years, and it has eaten holes in my storage drawers and turned them into a gooey mess. Here are some pics.

I am sticking my finger through a hole made by glow in the dark sculpey (it seems like this was the most corrosive):

Another pic of the hole in one drawer. The shiny areas around each piece of clay are melted-ish plastic, it's gooey like clear glue.

Some more melted areas around pieces of clay:

This is so weird! I guess you shouldn't store sculpey in plastic containers because of a chemical reaction?

I loved this project and I HAD to do it. I used 3mm rhinestones and 1.5mm ones to fill in the gaps. I glued them on with superglue and covered the phone in clear nail polish. I just got more rhinestones to do the back:

And I glued them on a faceplate, so if I don't like it I can put on a new faceplate.

Those don't have to stay as islands. You can cut away areas in the corners or in natural places to make it easier. This is hard to explain, so here is a stencil that I use. In the face part, I made the line thinner in some areas so it wouldn't be a solid line going around the chin:

There are many places you can do that in the spondebob stencil.

Some college campuses don't have a good, cheap furniture place nearby, so I recommend the hardware store. You will be able to find lots of bath stuff, kitchen supplies, shelving, etc.

What I learned during my first year (at Harvard) is to look for space where you wouldn't expect it. I had a really old school in-wall dresser thing in my bedroom, and I found that when I took out the low drawers, there was an area like 1' x 2' x 3' under it! It looked like some previous students had used it to hide their beer bottles, but I used it for my xmas storage. There is always space UP! I stacked a bunch of those milk crate type things on top of my shelves.

One thing I must warn people about is these wire shelves that are sold at many stores like target or linens+things. It is a kit with these 14-inch square flat wire things, which you assemble into shelves using plastic connectors. I don't know what inspired me to buy it, but the shelves are SOOO heavy (the kit weighs 30 pounds I swear) and it's impossible to put the plastic connectors on, not to mention getting them off! You don't even get enough of those crappy connectors. Buy PLASTIC shelving! Waaay easier to deal with.

I echo the comment about the 3m things. They actually do come off easily and completely! They are applicable for many crafty purposes too. I got the ones that are meant to hold cords onto the wall, and I tied a wire loop onto them. Then I stuck em on the ceiling and hung fabric and lights. I also hung a sheet from urban outfitters (clearance $5) on the plain white wall. Here are some pics of a corner of my room that I decorated intensely:

the white flouncy things are curtains that were on clearance at urban outfitters for $7. I have some similar ones from ikea too

10  Re: Several reconstructed tops and skirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by moonunit426 on: July 02, 2004 08:42:38 PM
This is a huge and poorly drawn image but I had to fit in everything!

#1 is for the halters. I made them all with two layers of fabric. I think this is the best way because it's nice to have thicker fabric and the edges all look good. The red lines are where you should sew first, right sides together! The front and back will kind of be pockets with the sides still unsewn. Here is where you should add ribbon or lace or whatever to the front, so the edges will get pulled into the side seams.

Then turn inside out and sew (right sides in!) to the back

The elastic-back version is a little tricky because I found it hard to get the elastic to line up vertically.

#2 is for the denim skirts. I used those funny shaped pieces 8 for a skirt, sewed em all together into their own skirt shape, then attached the waistband. The waistband was a double layer tube. You can cut off the bottom of a small t-shirt if it fits your waist.

An easy way to get the waistband on is to leave the main skirt part right side out, and then turn the waistband right side IN and slide the waistband over the skirt. Then you can sew along the top.

#3 is for the puffy lace skirts. I used large squares (I basically cut the sleeves and collar off of t-shirts). with a SMALL hole in the middle and a small "channel" to the middle hole. The hole needs to be WAY smaller than you think. The circumference of TWO of the hole should equal your waist size.

You need 2 of those square things. The straight edges of the "channel" get sewn together and the two holes make one hole. Is this confusing? I can draw it out better.

For the lace, I just put it on top of the t-shirt material and treated it as one piece of fabric. I attached the waistband using the same method as #2.
