11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Guitar Pick earrings on: July 12, 2006 02:52:28 PM
Hi people. this is my first time posting in the jewlery section. I went to southwest Ireland with my college a couple weeks ago, and found these amazing guitar picks while shopping in Tralee. I immediately thought they would make great earrings, so i bought 4 of them; two to play with and two to make earrings out of. They were 50 cents euro each. so yesterday i bought some earring making stuff at jo-anns, and it was on sale!
i cut equal lengths of chain, attached them to the earring part, then attached a larger loop to the bottom. to poke holes in the picks, i heated a thick needle with a candle and then poked it through. it went fairly easily, and the excess plastic came off really easily. i then put the picks through the bigger loop thing and closed. the total cost for everything was under $5, and i still have plenty of chain and earring parts left.

(technically the flag is green, white, and orange, not the other way around, but i wanted the picks to look the way they do. i looked it up though, and found that the OLD irish flag was orange, white and green, so technically i'm not wrong)
and on:

thanks in advance for looking, and let me know what you think!
12  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Re: what will happen ? on: June 11, 2006 08:16:10 PM
if you use an iron on for white clothing on dark clothing, it will be a lot darker than it would be on the white. and the white parts would end up whatever color the fabric was
iron on transfers for white are VERY different than for darks. with white, you have to reverse the image before printing it, and then the white parts come out clear. with dark iron on transfer, atleast the stuff i've used, you dont reverse the image, and the white parts stay white. i prefer the dark transfers because the pictures come out really clear.
hope i helped! Smiley

*edit* oh yeah, i almost forgot. white transfers tend to crackle eventually, and the darker ones tend to peel off

i love project runway and i love that dress. i've been wanting to make one like that for a while now. i really like your version of it, and would have never thought to make it without sleeves. it looks really professional too!
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Red Summery Dress on: June 02, 2006 02:33:28 PM
So I found like 10 yards of red cotton-ish fabric in my closet (I'm not actually sure what kind of fabric it is), and since dresses seem to be very in this summer, I decided to use some of the fabric to make one. I dislike patterns, so I just kind of winged it.

The skirt part is a half-circle skirt, the top is altered from a shirt pattern I had, and I just sort of guessed on how to make something to connect them in the middle. The back part was just awkward, so I cut it up the middle, added two red elephant buttons to the the top, and had the zipper part start from the middle of the back. I also dislike zippers, and the directions that show how to install one, so I made that up as I went too. Part of the back is just kind of open, which I like, but you can see my bra when wearing it, so I may need to figure out something to do about that. The dress also needs to be hemmed. I've been putting it off because I'm dreading hemming it.

excuse the fact that it needs to be ironed Undecided

i love those! i saw those shirts somewhere on-line, and when i saw the price, i said the exact same thing. what did you use to write the words? fabric paint? and if so, does it crack?

i used to make this stuff when i was little too! one time, my brother came up and asked what i was making. i told him cookies, because i knew he'd try and eat the dough. sure enough, he did and exclaimed "what kind of cookies are these?"
