1  Calls for Swap Angels / Swap Angel Archive / Panty Raid Swap---4 Angels Found on: April 29, 2006 10:59:08 AM
Our organizer (miss brianne) flaked on her partners as did rythmthief. They each owe a pair of decorated undies to two partners. Anyone who can send to any of these girls would be so awesome and we would be so grateful.

Miss Brianne Flaked on Dooney & dharma_rebel
Rythmthief Flaked on mrgrita & LuluB

*One issue with this swap is that each person mailed out a set of undies to each partner to be embellished. If the swap angel could send a pair of undies, it would be great. If they would like a pair shipped to them, that can worked out as well.

more info will be post later today

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / **My Black Skirt** on: April 13, 2006 12:19:45 AM
So I was at Walmart the other day looking for some simple black fabric to make a skirt to wear to an interview I had last Monday. Going through the fabrics, I found this lightweight cotton in black and in brown that was only $1/yard. I also found a pink plaid-type print. The best part is this one was on clearance .50/yard. I got like 4 yards of each fabric. I also picked up two patterns that I wanted to try, one was $2, the other was way more $13. When I got home i realized She only charged me for 1 pattern, the cheaper one! I really did come home with some good deals.

Anyways, on to the skirt. I made this trying to make it kind of like an A-line skirt. I had no idea how to make it so I kinda just cut out what i thought it should look like. I made a waist band. Then cut out the skirt shape I wanted, and attached the two. I really like how the sides are a bit longer, it makes it hang nicely. I am rather pleased with it Smiley
It took me only like 45 min altogether, with my sister screaming at me to go to bed already since it was 11:30pm.  Now on to the pictures, let me know what you think

Here's the 1st pic I took in the mirror before I decided to try the self timer:

The whole outfit I wore:

The skirt itself:

Side views:
(it looks longer in the 1st picture, but its really knee legnth)

Close up of fabric:

As you can tell the fabric is a bit see through so I made the skirt two layers and I wore black spandex shorts underneath just in case.
I also liked how it looked without the edges hemed.

thanks for looking!


3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Birthday Month Swap- April on: April 05, 2006 06:08:16 PM
post your birthday goodies

4  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / APRIL Birthday Month Swap --Sign ups CLOSED on: March 28, 2006 12:20:25 PM

Swap name: Birthday Month Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: pink_dinosaur (organizers change every month)
Sign-up date range: CLOSED
Date to send item by: 2 weeks after you claim someone
Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): no!
Non-U.S. participants allowed? yes!
All ages allowed? Or 18+? all ages!
Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:  This swap was organized so everyone can get something crafty for their birthday!  Please read the guidelines carefully.

  • If your birthday is in April, then you can post your wishlist for this month. To do that, you must first PM me with the Swap questionnaire filled out.
  • Once I PM you and let you know you have been approved, you may post your list of things that you would want to receive.  The more you think of, the better.   The last wish you will post is "a surprise."  Then you will post a bio about yourself, including where you are from and what your birthday is. 
    Please post lists only.  No discussion on this thread please
  • Everyone will then go through the lists and choose a craftster they want to send a birthday gift to.  Your birthday does not have to be in April for you to craft for someone.  If you want to choose someone, just PM me with your info (including your address, please), who you want to craft for, and what item, and I will send you their address.
  • If you chose to craft for someone, you have 2 weeks to get the item out the door.  If two weeks pass, and I don't hear anything from youyou guessed it, negative feedback!
  • Each person can be chosen unlimited times! HERE'S THE CATCH- if you get chosen, you must send the person who crafted for you a thank you note in the mail.  You will get negative feedback if you do not send a thank you note (it can be a postcard even).  I think this is a fair trade for all the crafty goodness you'll be getting!
  • It is super important for everyone to keep good communication.  When you send, let me know, and of course, don't forget the DC#.  When you receive, let me know and publically announce in the gallery (even if you don't have pictures).  Also, let me know when you send off your thank you note (no DC# required, you're on your honor!).
  • You can choose to craft for as many people as you like, but you cannot "owe" more than 3 things.  If you are a newbie and this is your first swap, you must successfully send once before choosing again.

Original idea thread and discussion located here
If you have any more questions or suggestions, you can post on the link above, or send me a PM with "Birthday Swap March" in the subject line.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / *Flower Circle Skirt* TUTORIAL ADDED on: March 21, 2006 07:51:40 PM
This is the first piece of clothing I made. The fabric I was a bedsheet I found at the thrift store for $2.00.
It only took me 2 hours to make working on and off. Let me know what you think Smiley thanks

Me standing on my sister's bed using the camera's self timer:

Another view:

Close up of fabric:

The waist band:

The zipper on the waistband:

thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Here is a basic tutorial on how to cut out the skirt. I hope everything is clear. let me know if I need to explain a bit more.
Two tips I have for you:
  • Try this out on muslin or other inexpensive fabric to make sure your layout and calculations are correct before you cut your fabric
  • Once you have the dimensions worked out, make a paper pattern that you can use in the future so you don't have to recalculate every time.

if you are still having trouble check out this site:
Just plug in your length, your waist size, and the size of fabric you are using and it calculates everything for you and provides an image as guidance.
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ravioli on: March 19, 2006 12:04:32 AM
I made this for my boyfriend for valentine's day. Me and him always share ravioli when we have italian. It's his favorite food. I wanted to avoid buying him little plushies like I usually do cause they just end up in his closet in a box.  Roll Eyes  This one he keeps on his bed, which tells me he actually likes it  Cheesy

It's just 2 pieces of tan felt. One piece of red for the sauce and black felt for a mouth. I love googly eyes, plus it saved the time of trying to make and sew a pair on there. It only took my about an hour all together. What do you think??

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help with this dress on: February 23, 2006 09:57:34 AM
My dad is having a party this saturday for his 60th birthday. I chose my dress which I saw in Cosmo Girl:

Its kinda hard to to see the dress in the picture so I took some pics of the dress at home:
(the dress is black with glitter in it)

Here's my question:
This party is going to be outdoors so it's going to get cold. I was thinking of knitting a wrap (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=81349.msg764775#msg764775)
like this one: http://www.berroco.com/231/231_dagmar_pv.html but in black.

or should i buy some fabric and stitch one up? it would be faster since the party is this saturday. but i dont really know what fabric to use or how to make one.

also do you think if i made one (knitted or stitched) that i should make it black or is that too dark. i dont plan on wearing it with black tights like the girl did, although maybe i should cause it would keep me warm. what do you think?
I'm really clueless when it comes to fashion so i don't know what goes togther. my solution is everything in black, that way it matches. I dont know what shoes to wear either. I'd really love to hear anyones opinion on this. thanks

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / What yarn can I Use? on: February 22, 2006 03:40:07 PM
I wanted to make this for a party this saturday

I can't find the yarn they suggest except online and I can't order online because it won't come in time.

does anyone know any other yarn i could use? I want to make it in black. cause the dress im wearing is black with glitter on it

thanks Huh for your help
