2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / vintage fabric + leftover tulle + polyester lining = 1 awesome SKIRT! on: August 15, 2005 12:57:23 PM
 so this is my second skirt ever.
It's a knee length flared skirt with tulle trimming the bottom, it has a thin polyester lining.

it attaches with a fabric tie, invisible zipper and hook and eye closure.

I am really impressed with this and how it came together.
it took about 2 hours in total to make
and i didn't use a pattern,  i just freehanded it.
(i was all by myself when i took these pics, so sorry they're not very detailed.)

comments/criticism greatly appreciated Cheesy
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / doggy skirt :D somewhat image heavy? on: August 14, 2005 09:12:51 PM
alright. so i was inspired and i whipped this baby up in an hour or so.
it was such a simple skirt!
i'm quite happy about it, although it's a little too tight to what i imagined. i don't care though. i'm going to wear it anyway Cheesy
it's a simple A-Line skirt, with two seams down the sides, with slits. an elastic waistband.
i  called it my test skirt to another one i want to make. but i still love the doggys.

mirror view.

close up on the doggys. the colours are much more vibrant in real life.

sorry about the crap look on my face and my hair looks horrible in this picture.

i also just have to mention that i didn't have to pay a cent for the materials i used today (minus the sewing machine)
so now i have a new back to school getup!
haha, yes i am actually going to wear this on the first day of school (in three weeks)

comments/criticism are greatly appreciated.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / DUCT TAPE DRESSFORM!!! on: July 01, 2005 12:24:15 PM
so thanks for the thread that explained the ducttape dressform.
my friend wrapped me, i was wearing a garbage bag. we did the stomach first, hip last and the bust (i guess) in the middle.
it cost 5 dollars for the roll of ducttape and i didn't use it all. i didn't know what to use for the stand so i put it on  a hanger. i'll get a stand soon.
all right, pictures.

just my friend holding it up.

wearing my shirt.

thanks for looking. comments/criticism appreciated.
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Gum-Chain Wrappers/Starburst Bracelets TUTORIAL! (img heavy) on: June 26, 2005 05:04:19 PM
People have been asking about how to make the gum-chain wrappers and starburst bracelets so here we go:
You need the foil or the outer wrappers of each individual piece of gum. I used the foil. Wrigleys got cheap and just made the outer wrapper white Sad
note: this is the beginning of mine so sorry it's not bigger Cheesy

fold together again

fold halfways  and unfold

fold both sides to crease

finished prong Cheesy
To attach:

open up one side of prongs (so there's a little space)

push sides of prong into other one

FINISHED! repeat as much times as you can ( or as much gum as you can handle!)
now enjoy your newly created belt/bracelet whatever with your teddy bear Cheesy

if you have any questions or whatever just comment and ask!
or this tutorial might help you aswell:
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Soothing your Doggy's Tummy Ache on: June 24, 2005 04:03:24 PM
Ok so recently my dog had a stomachache and I know lots of people who's dogs get upset stomachs so this is what i created:
Mix a bit of the dog's kibble with 2 tsps of honey
Add a crushed up Rolaid or Tums or whatever antacid (NO PEPTO BISMOL!) to the mixture and feed it to your dog.
Make sure your dog drinks plenty of water or else (s)he'll get dehydrated.

Hope this helps your pets and  post your remedies here too!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tote Bag, REVERSIBLE (Jordy Bag, Gabi's way!) on: June 24, 2005 03:53:27 PM
alright so I made this bag:
it's a jordy bag with some modifications.... i just sewed it differently that's all.
i paid 50cents for the flowery material and a dollar for the plain pink (lining)... that's canadian.
took me awhile to make : i kept making mistakes and my MACHINE BROKE Sad so i sewed most of this without the foot on... but it turned out ok considering.

hope ya like it, and give me some comments and stuff i can do better!

8  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Rag Snip Scissors & Squaring fabric for Rag Quilt Squares on: June 22, 2005 07:38:18 PM
I've been bombarded by my mom to ask about Rag Snip Scissors.
Do any of you know where I can get them under 50 dollars CND?
Online, or a store in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I'd really really really appreciate it. I want to use regular scissors, but my mom insists on using them and getting them cheap.

I have a question. I'm making a rag quilt and so is my mom... we need to know if we need to square our fabric first and then cut.  My mom has only done like cotton quilts and wants to know about flanellette. if you can be of help that be effing great! i'm so excited to get started but i don't want to mess up!!!

Thanks guys.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Circular Knitting Needles -- Question on: June 19, 2005 02:45:23 PM
i'm new to knitting and i learned with straight needles
i want to know if knitting with circular needles is easier/harder/better/worse for a beginner knitter.
i have read things where they say that you can knit anything with circulars.. is this true? the only things ive ever knitted is scarves....
do you think it would be worth it to try and use them? or should i just not bother?
