1  Not your average jewelry stand (More like 'bee average' :D) IMG EXPLOSION! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by geniusNOTatWORK on: October 13, 2009 12:11:38 AM
Alright, so back story: I'm a resident adviser at my school. On move in day, I saw some girl with an interesting jewelry stand that was in the shape of a beehive. I was determined to make the same exact thing. I tried to find her later to see it so I can recreate it to a T but I never found her. My friend's birthday was today and I decided to make this for her. Since I just had an idea of the product, I basically winged it and, as Tim Gunn says, made it work Smiley

Finished product

Seriously, stroke of genius right here! I know the original creation had bee decorations but I didn't have any because I never found any at the store. I had my drawer slightly open and I saw my yellow purse clips lying there with the clips up and it resembled a bug to me.

Jewelry stand in action! Smiley

Bad pic, but the clips are most definitely fully functional Smiley Smiley

Dollar tree, what UP!!! Cheesy I used the metal backing of the filter. I only had 2

Materials used: styrofoam cone, styrofoam circle, lots of hot glue, a steel washing pouf, filters, garden wire, yellow purse clips, and spray paint that is styrofoam safe Smiley

Hmm, I can use that technique for little details and stuff, thank you Smiley

Actually, this was what I'm really trying to accomplish:

But I don't know how exactly I would get that splatter/image effect. Would I just include them in a stencil? I have this gut feeling that it won't come out well or look sort of weird in the end....any suggestions?

3  Recon on a dress in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by geniusNOTatWORK on: December 11, 2005 01:14:07 AM
Hi everyone! I'm sorta new to making clothes, let alone reconstructing a dress, and I was wondering if anyone can help me. I want a great looking dress for my National Honor Society induction ceremony on December 22.

The dress includes a matching bolero top.

The dress goes down to a little above my ankles.

Everything on the dress fits perfectly except for the bust. I was thinking of cutting it shorter (maybe to my knees), adding a zipper in the back, and making the top a halter, and then adding white lace to the new halter design. Can anyone help walk me through this? Adding some MS paint tutorial type thing would be much appreciated since I'm more of a visual learner.  I only have one shot since I do only have one dress to reconstruct. Thanks in advance! Cheesy

My first REAL post! Cheesy

I know I could post this under the tutorial post but considering it's my very first sewing job, I think it should get a post all by itself!

And the tutorial for credit: http://clubweb.interbaun.com/lavarocket/radar.pdf

6  Looking for a certain (or similar) fabric (one pic) in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by geniusNOTatWORK on: October 01, 2005 03:53:26 PM
I'm pretty sure this goes here, if it doesn't, please move Smiley

My friend ADORES Garden State and I've been meaning to make him the shirt that looks like the wallpaper from the movie but I can't because I've been looking for a fabric with a similar pattern for 2 years and I still can't find it! So any suggestions or fabrics with a similar pattern are much appreciated! Thanks!

And for those who haven't seen the movie and have no idea what I'm talking about..
