1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Repairing Stone Ring? on: March 01, 2015 10:38:39 AM
So I got this ring yesterday and I noticed that it had a long chip in it. When I first saw it I didn't notice it so I dunno if I ended up doing it or what. As far as I can tell it's made out of some kind of stone. Is there anything I can put over the chip to prevent it from further getting damaged? I have no idea how to go about this. I was thinking something like clay glaze?

Here's a link to the image of the ring. It's pretty big but you can zoom in and see the chip.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Crochet Ukulele Bag Pattern? on: January 06, 2013 03:13:37 PM
Does such a thing exist? I think I want to make a bag for my non-existent ukulele (won't have one until at least February) and thought crochet with fabric lining would be a cute idea. The problem? Only pattern I can find is a knit one that is also felted.

No big deal really, I usually don't use patterns for anything anyway. But if I could find a pattern for a soprano ukulele bag it would be nice but not necessary.

Another problem, once I make this bag people may ask me for a pattern! I just wing stuff, I would have no clue how to begin making a pattern  Shocked

If anyone has ever crocheted their own instrument bag before advice would be helpful! I was thinking double yarn or chunky yarn is a must along with a soft cotton liner (so the uke doesn't get caught in the yarn) and then a long zipper along one side of it. I've never added a liner to my crochet projects before so this will be very interesting indeed.
3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / List of safe things to bake in clay? on: June 01, 2012 01:13:00 PM
I wasn't sure about what to search so I'm sorry if this question has come up before. I searched a few pages before asking but didn't come up with much.

Is there a list of safe objects that you can bake inside of clay? For instance, I know that branches and wood can be baked in the oven with no problem (I have done it before while making perches for my birds.) so I'm assuming I can add sticks to polymer clay before baking to decorate something. I have also added plastic pony beads to my clay objects before and only had a tiny bit of melting done, but nothing that ruined my finished products. I also bake on paper, but I would never actually add paper into my designs as that would be rather silly.

So, is there a list of safe objects I can use in my clay creations? I have an awesome idea that I eventually want to sell and if I could add other things into the clay before baking to add decoration, I would love it.

Also, I have heard that some people glue things on before baking them, such as wood. Would this cause harmful fumes from the glue? Of course being baked after its already dried for a day.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Borg Sweatshirt on: January 03, 2012 07:56:42 PM
I have two MS paint drawings of Borg sweatshirts I wanted to make. I finished one and I am loving it to death. I didn't use a pattern, just cut and sewed. I might add interfacing to the collar so it stands up better instead of slouching a lot. I also wanted to add "Species 5618" to the back but ... It's annoying so I won't do it for a while lol. Took me months on and off to finish it. There are a couple things that are bad with it but overall I think it looks good.

This was also the first time I lined a hood. I think it turned out really nice and I love the inside fabric. It makes the hood look really good. I just need to sew along the edges a bit more carefully so it's straight lol. Enjoy! C&C always welcome.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Rastafarian Hat on: January 03, 2012 07:53:38 PM
I made this Rasta hat for my cousin for Christmas. Excuse the lack of many pictures, I made it on Christmas Eve a few hours before he opened it (they wanted to open presents from us while we were there.) The picture with it on my head shows the true colors. Made from two sweaters and a scarf. I tried out a new way to make hats and it turned out fantastic. No pattern, just cut and sewed.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Attempt at a pleated skirt on: November 07, 2011 08:50:16 PM
I wanted to make something special for my boyfriend so I wanted to make a mini skirt! It's not as short as I wanted but he still likes it. This took me days to make simply because I only worked on it a little bit every now and then (Plus I wanted it to look somewhat professional, and I think it's one of my better projects for that) I didn't use a pattern, I just measured, cut, and sewed. I also made button holes. First time ever.

I almost forgot, here's a pic with the buttons undone. It makes it easier to put on, plus I loved the buttons. The holes are a bit messy but they're the first ones I ever made, so meh.

c&c always welcome!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First post, sweater hat on: October 05, 2011 09:23:14 PM
Hey all. Been lurking around for a long time now. The past week or two I've been checking out things other people have made. I'll tell you, it's put me in a really crafty mood despite all my college work! Anyway, I've been sewing for a couple years now but I'm not super awesome amazing at it lawl.

I found a tutorial a while back (I'm sorry to say I've lost it!) and made quite a few of these hats. Finding extra large mens sweaters on mondays for a dollar at value village = hat material for days. I fell in love with this orange one, despite the fact that it poops out orange fluffs all the time. I'd suggest using a serger for making slouchy hats from sweaters. But since I'm poor... Well here you go anyway.

I messed up in a few places, I know! O: I should've folded it better but ah well! I did this one pretty quick. Here's one I did a while back. I loved it so much but I gave it to my aunt.

Also, sorry for links but it won't let me post images. sadface.
