1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / this damn clock ticks too loud on: February 13, 2007 02:19:46 PM
I have a battery powered clock that ticks too loud. I can be in another room and hear it over the TV or radio. When I'm in the room, the ticking annoys me... almost like the clock is mocking me

the thing is... its SUCH a cool looking clock and it really looks nice in the room.

I've taken the batteries out, but would like the clock to work again someday

any suggestions?
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Does this work -- making a T-shirt pattern on: January 27, 2007 10:20:23 PM
I've made "rub-offs" of several items of clothing. Essentially copying one item I already have to make a new, similar item.

I've got a bit of jersey fabric and want to make a t-shirt out of it. Do ya'll think I could copy a t-shirt I already have?

Has anyone tried this?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / recommend a shirt dress pattern on: January 21, 2007 08:02:23 PM
I want to make a really cute shirt dress, but I'm having trouble finding a suitable pattern.

The closest I've come is a threads pattern, but I think it may be too matronly.

have any of ya'll made a shirt dress? And, if so, what pattern did you use?

thanks for the help
4  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / sewing room curtains on: January 10, 2007 08:55:45 PM
If you've got to put curtains on the window to your sewing room, you might as well make them ebroidered curtains:

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / blown up cherries on: January 10, 2007 08:44:23 PM
a friend from ack in the day wanted me to make her a bag. She said she collects cherries... so this is what I came up with:

but I don't think she likes it... I think its darling

I made it by blowing up the cherry pattern from the tattoo your towels set to be about 4 inches high.

whaddya'll think?
6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Catch A Cold ATC swap? on: January 10, 2007 08:35:35 PM
Hear me out:

back in college, living in the dorms, the people and I passed around illnesses like they were... well, illnesses. Colds, bronchitis, the flu, strep... if one person got it, you were guaranteed to get that illness too.

I still refuse to believe the outbreak of "mono" that went around my freshman year, luckily, I was immune.

we hit on the idea to make trading cards so we could "pass around the illness" without actually getting sick.

Think of it: "I'll trade you my cold, and some influenza for your food poisoning"

so, what do ya'll think of an ATC swap based on illnesses?
I'll even (gasp!) organize
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. yum! on: September 11, 2006 07:40:04 PM
about two years ago I made a dear friend of mine a purse out of a box from Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. It was okay, not the greatest purse ever, but functional.

Her boyfriend is about to go on tour in Japan and my friend wanted to bring a gift to the promoter of her boyfriend's shows. She wanted something that represented the Pacific Northwest (where we all live) but didn't want to do something typical.

Portland, Oregon is the second largest consumer of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer outside of Milwaukee. So the Japanese concert promoter is getting her very own (new and improved) Pabst Blue Ribbon purse.

Its made from a few boxes (three or four), some refrigerator tubing, some blue ribbon (get it?), blue fabric, some tape (masking and duct) and a crap-ton of hot glue.

Whaddya think?


8  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Project Runway - Angela's Flowers on: August 10, 2006 03:47:40 PM
does anyone know how to make Angela's "full-tilt, boogie-quilted extravaganza of puff" rosettes?

i think they're kinda cute
9  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / yeehaw! Am I on the right track? on: May 04, 2006 03:43:41 PM
I'm being ambitious and this is my first project from the book. I"m taking it very slow, stitch by stitch and I can't imagine this coming out to look like a hat. For the first few rows, I'd get to the end of the directions and it seemed like I'd have to skip a lot of stitches to join the row I just made up with its beginning. I think I've got the concept of countin gstitches down, but for the last row I counted 35 instead of 38 that I should have...

So, here is the hat folded in half:

and here it is in a wonky angle shot:

am I on the right track? It would be nice to know before I continue... I mean, if I've already screwed up I'd like to take care of it now rather than later, you know what I mean?
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / what does petite mean? on: April 30, 2006 08:41:35 PM
So I found this pattern that I really like that is a "misses petite" pattern.

I'm 5'10 and sorta curvy, so I doubt I'm exactly petite. However the pattern goes up to size 22, so I think I"m okay there...

I guess what I'm asking is this: does petite refer to any particular proportion or dimension (ie shorter torso) or does it just refer to someone who is short and thin?
