22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / SUCH a cute wallet on: June 28, 2005 08:12:02 PM
about a week and a half ago my beloved paul frank wallet was taken from me. Somewhere between the blockbuster and the line at safeway, it disappeared. It was so pretty... it was yellow with little reel to reel machines on it

and to top it off, it had my ID in it. No ID = No Beer. I was a sad little crafter...

but now! NOW I have a new wallet. All made by me:

View from above

I'm really proud of it. And the fabric, I did the stencilling myself Smiley

Right now, I think I rule
23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / is this how its done? (recreating a fabric print) on: June 19, 2005 11:00:42 AM
I got the most BEAUTIFUL fabric the other day. its lime green with big pink elephants on swings.

I don't have a whole lot of the fabric, and want to use it for a skirt. But I want to use it for a wallet as well... so I was thinking of scanning the fabric and making a stencil of the elephant and painting it on canvas to make a sturdy wallet.

Now, I know how to silk screen... but that process isn't really going to work for this... So I was going to get green paint, and pink paint and a piece of white canvas. Should I

a) Paint the fabric green, then just stencil the elephants on it in pink.
b) pain the fabric green, then stencil white elephants as a base, then pink over that
c) stencil pink elephants on the fabric then paint with green around them

or, am I completely wrong

this will be my first stencil project. so be gentle
24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / make it BIG on: June 03, 2005 07:40:17 PM
I have this kinda awesome drawing that I would love to embroider into a kickass wall-hanging. The photo is stored in my computer and prints out fine on a piece of 8.5x11 paper... but I want it big. Not so big that I'd use the rasterbater, but... bigger. Maybe 24x36 or so.

anyway, does anyone know how to blow up and print an image like this via photoshop?

love, jane
25  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / help me figure out these pockets on: May 27, 2005 10:07:31 PM

how would you do pockets like these? I'm kinda baffled
26  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / let's talk zippers on a roll on: May 23, 2005 07:28:29 PM
So, I"ve been thinking lately... I got throught a LOT of zippers...

I've seen "Zippers-on-a-roll" at the fabric store. I"ve noticed that each roll boasts 5 or so zipper pulls. Now, this works out to one zipper pull every yard or so... but what if I want 5 inch zippers? Are "loose" pulls available?

where does one find them?

too embarassed to ask these questions at the fabric store,
27  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / My Favorite Rawk Stah on: May 01, 2005 05:00:22 AM
I"m a geek. I admit it freely.

My favorite musician is Scott McCaughey, the main guy in the Young Fresh Fellows and the Minus 5. He's better known as "the other guy," one of the thouring backup musicians for R.E.M. He's just cool. He always wears those sunglasses and sometimes he wears this gold Lame sport coat that his mom made out of a set of curtains.

So, here he is for reference:

and here his is in knit form:

and like his life sized version, the knit McOi likes to stagedive... off the sofa
28  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / This E6000 glue ya'll are on about... on: April 24, 2005 01:42:09 PM
My mother used to call me the "adhesion queen" because I can glue or tape anything back together.

I've just noticed ya'll are talking lots about this E6000 glue and lots of ya'll are using it.

I'm about to start projects for a craft show in July and I'm going to be using swarovski crystals on my purses. I need a glue that won't goober up the fabric around the designs, but will keep the crsytals from falling off... I'm going to be usign avariety of different fabrics... silky stuff, vinyl, fake suede...

will this stuff work?
and can I buy it locally (michael's, jo-ann's, etc ?)
29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'm so proud! (my new shirt) on: April 18, 2005 10:13:26 AM
Having recently discovered craftster (where have you been all my life??). I've been enormously inspired by some of the projects I've seen here. In Particular, I love the embroidered Elvis Costello shirt. I decided to take a go at it myself. Here is my interpretation of the cover of "Let The War Against Music Begin, vol. 1" by the Minus 5.

SInce not a lot of people have the record, here it is for reference:

and the shirt:

whaddya think?
