1  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Glass slipper? on: August 31, 2007 06:25:44 AM
Ok so I know people will probably roll their eyes when they read this post, but the theme for my friends wedding is like a fairytale/cinderella story thing and she wants glass slippers. Real ones, not lucite or anything. So I said Id ask around and if it isnt possible Id buy her a pair of Manolo Blahniks as my wedding gift. They cant be more expensive than having a glass shoe made, right?
Anyway, can anyone think of a way that it could be possible to make a real glass slipper? Glass isnt really my thing, so though I imagine a really complicated mold could be made, I have no idea. Perhaps a wedge shoe could be used as the base with pieces of pastel coloured glass stuck on. She really wants that little *ping* when she walks so it would have to have glass on the bottom too...
Argh. I dont know. Help please!
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Soap Petals on: July 05, 2007 09:32:44 AM
So I love the idea of soap petals, which are basically silk rose petals coated in soap for single use, but i cant justify making them cause they are sooo wasteful! but i found this on a how to type site and i so want to make them somehow!
alright photobucket is being a pain in the a** so im just gonna stick a link in:
i was thinking maybe she made a cylinder and sliced petals off but if thats what she did she musta had a hella sharp knife cause there are no lines. or could this be done with a mold of some sort? just a very thin layer...?
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My new "Wilde" book on: May 06, 2007 03:48:36 PM
   One of my favourite books is "Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde, so I was thrilled today to find a book of Wilde's best known works for 2$. Unfortunately the cover was really rather... fugly. Dirty and dusty and scratched.
   So since I also bought a necklace today that came wrapped in zebra tissue paper I decided to re-cover it to eliminate the gross factor and make it all prettiful. Im also in the process of changing the gold letters and swirls to silver but my silver pen died. RIP.
   I thought it was appropriate to have zebra print, given that it was a book by Oscar "Wilde". Get it? Yeah I'm sorry if you're someone like me that hates puns. I was just so proud of myself I couldnt help it...
   Anyhoo, on to pictures.

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Suede meets Sewing Machine on: November 11, 2006 09:15:50 AM
         Can anybody advise me about using my sewing machine to sew leather? I bought

an old suede coat that i want to make into a purse, but I'm scared that putting a leather

needle on my old Pfaff and sewing suede will cause it to...I don't know, blow up or

something. How can you tell if your material is too thick for your machine? What's my

worst case scenario of I try to sew it and its too thick?
