1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / I need some ideas - cutting into an aluminum PSP case! on: June 22, 2012 11:32:00 PM
I've got an unusual question, but I hope somebody can help me out.  ^^

I keep my PSP in a tight-fitting aluminum case.  I need a small window to be cut out of the top so I can fit my camera extension there.   The aluminum is roughly one milimeter thick.  What's the best tool to use for detail work on metal of this thickness?  Are there places that rent it out or should I search for somebody who already knows what they're doing?

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / YYH - Urameshi Team on: January 30, 2012 08:33:51 PM

Yu Yu Hakusho was my childhood. From 12 until 20, I ate, slept, and breathed this series. Even though its embarassing to look back on, I loved arguing with other fans about pairings, comparing subbed to dubbed, drawing fanart, printing fanfics I was WAY too young to be reading at the school library and praying I wouldnt be caught

In honor of those good times, I felt it was right to knit all four of the team, even if it makes this cozy an odd size. ^^
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / How would you store a TON of floss? on: November 18, 2011 10:32:14 PM
I inherited a boxload (think big UHAUL moving box) of embroidery floss from an aunt who kept her floss in bags on binder rings.  I'm extremely appreciative of the windfall, but I hate that method of storage!  It's so messy and hard to find the numbers I need.  It would take twenty bead storage kits to put all of this away neatly.  Is there a similar form of storage that's shallow, transparent, and, well, much bigger? 

I swear she must have bought out a store somewhere...  o_o
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Latest little project - Cid Highwind on: July 26, 2011 04:14:42 PM
Phone-sized pouches are turning into a frequent indulgence.  Even with my slow speed, I can finish one in three days.  I made this while house-sitting last week.  It's Cid from FF7.  Next in line, Hatsune Miku.  <3

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / You want a mandarin collar NOW? H-help? on: July 09, 2011 12:03:52 PM
I'm working on a button-up shirt for my mom, and in the middle of fitting it on she says, "What if you leave the collar just like this?"  Just like this, btw, is without the the collar!  Is it, uh...  easy to just draft up a mandarin collar?   Huh
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Calling Cait Sith! on: June 28, 2011 02:35:07 PM

I combined my favorite things - robin egg blue, Katamari Damacy, and Cait Sith (the annoying robot cat from FF7) and created the most awesome phone cozy in the world.  Okay, maybe not the whole world, but it's my favorite project this year.  ^_^ I think I want to make another one in pink...
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Something about the redheads... on: April 08, 2011 06:37:38 PM
Here are my two latest projects, phone pouches featuring Grell Sutcliff from Kuroshitsuji and Axel from Kingdom Hearts.  I made the back wider than the front on Grell.  Such a stupid mistake.  >.<

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / When the finished product is terrible... do you wear it? on: September 17, 2010 07:50:27 PM
Tonight I wore a shirt that frankly, doesn't do anything for me.  The reason I wear it is because it wasn't cheap to make and it keeps me from being naked.  The uh, shame is just extra motivation to keep practicing my sewing.  But it got me thinking about other beginner/novices out there, ans what they do in these situations.

When you finish something and it looks utterly terrible, or at the very least, unflattering, do you still wear it?  Where do you draw the line? 
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / When you MUST choose between two patterns... on: May 21, 2010 11:48:00 AM
I have - I mean...  PRETEND YOU HAVE a little problem.  There are two patterns before you, and only enough fabric for one of them.  You can't buy more fabric, and you don't have time to make both.

- The first pattern is familiar and fits you like a glove, but you have made several shirts from it, and you can only change the sleeves and collar so many times. 

- The second pattern is new and interesting, like nothing you've made before, but it involves techniques you're unfamiliar with, and you don't have enough time to do a test-run and fit it, so there's a bit of risk involved.

Now, between these two patterns, which should I- I mean, which would YOU chose to make?   Wink
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Labyrinth Box on: April 04, 2010 08:22:28 PM
Hopefully this is the right place to put this...  ^^;

I had a Labyrinth poster when I was in high school, but it was starting to show its age.  It was too beautiful to throw away, so I cut it up and used it to decorate a little jewelry box.  What better way to protect your jewelry than by putting it at the center of a maze?  ;3

The top - the border was made up of spare pieces of the Labyrinth and a layer or two of stain.

The inside - the bottom and walls are also made up of the Labyrinth.  I tried to match the paths up evenly.

The front - Characters whose faces were small enough to fit on half an inch of wood! 

This was a fun project.  It can only hold a handful of necklaces, but luckily my sister also had a poster like this, which I was able to save.  Perhaps I'll decorate a bigger box next time!
