1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / If you were 14...DIY party ideas? on: July 09, 2013 08:16:44 PM
Hi, craftsterers. Long-time reader, second- or third-time poster. I hope the low number of posts doesn't make this question inappropriate!

My daughter is turning 14 in a couple weeks and wants to have a DIY party, where she and her friends have a variety of crafty projects they can work on all afternoon.

My question for you is this: If you were a 14-year-old with 10 girlfriends and, say, $20 for supplies for everyone, what kind of DIY project would you do?

(Assume we have some basic crafting tools at our disposal - glue guns, scissors, sharpies, an oven, a printer, etc.)

I'll come back and post photos after the event Smiley
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Christmas gift for my BFF on: January 29, 2013 09:37:20 AM
We live in the Bay Area and are those annoying oldsters who say that when we went to Burning Man in the '90s it was [cooler, smaller, cheaper, whatever-er], while seekritly wishing we had the time and energy to do it again. The sentiment expressed is something of an inside joke with us (its meaning goes beyond what it seems to say on the surface :).

I used the stitchpoint.com text generator for the text, and designed the mini-man border myself.

This was my first cross-stitch project in a loooong time, and now I want something more ambitious, but can't decide how big and detailed I can go without losing interest before I finish. A favorite album cover or work of art, maybe...

http://sfopera.com/eventdetails.asp?id=662&eventtypeid=9 for info.

I have heard that although it doesn't open until 11am, there is often a pretty long line by about 8:30.

some of the stuff might be excellent for reconstructions...there's a huge $5 and $10 section.

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Gifts for beadworkers... on: July 01, 2005 02:04:04 PM
Hi. I know nothing about beadwork, so I am throwing myself on the mercy of you wonderful artisans for advice!

I am involved in a secret faery game. The person I am faerying makes beaded jewelry. I've never seen any of it, so I don't know what her style is.

I'd love to get her some beads to work with, or some supplies or something. Do you beadworking folks have any suggestions for what kind of gift might be appreciated? Maybe in the up-to-$20 range? Should I just get a bunch of cool-looking beads in her favorite colors?

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / the ever-popular pants-to-skirt recon on: May 09, 2005 01:00:50 PM
my first reconstruction, and my second clothing sewing project. i am very proud of myself, especially if i claim the uneven seams and weird pleaty ruffle at the bottom was a conscious choice for a deconstructed, post-apocalypse, sewn-during-an-earthquake look.

old army green cargo pants that were too short, but not short enough to look ok, with a busy flowers-and-butterflies-and-gold thread fabric for the inserts and pleats.

i used a couple tutorials linked to from this site -- one for jeans-to-skirt, which i modified* to account for the lack of yoke on my pants, and another for adding pleats to a jeans-to-skirt project.

i cursed a lot while making it, but it was fun.

*by "modified" i mean i realized as i was cutting that there was no yoke.
