If they are made out of leather, you could dye them with leather dye.

You could do those little brooch flower japanese things.
5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: patchwork advice and sites? on: January 19, 2006 03:11:14 PM
Try searching in quilting. They do a lot of patchwork, piecing and applique`.

For that first dress, the center piece is made by cutting squares, put three in a row, sew sides together so you have a longer than wide strip of squares. Do it approx. 8 times, then sew each strip to the next one staggered so that when you are done is forms a parallelagram. Tip it on it's corner, and then put your pattern piece on it and cut it out.

I know that is probably hard to understand, so look up a quilting store, take the picture with you, and they will probably be able to explain it a lot better.

Just Lovely! What type of fiber is it made out of? From the pic, I'd guess cotton, but I'm probably wrong;p

That is adorable. It might actually convince me to have kids so I can make uber-cute clothing for them;p

The colorful metal loops are awesome. I never would have thought about using color for chainmail! I specially like the grey and blue hoop earings, they are very striking pieces. The 3rd necklace with the stone fringe has a very fascinating weave. Do you have any favorite sites for tutorials? Just lovely;p
9  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Spindles? on: January 19, 2006 01:32:30 PM
What I use is a Turkish spindle, but you have to half-hitch the yarn on while your spinning instead of a hook, but the good thing is that 1. It can be a top whorl or bottom whorl, and 2. when you take the yarn off, it is all ready wrapped in a center pull ball. Which makes it ridiculously(sp) easy to make an andean plying bracelet with. My 2cents, hope it helps.

Same, not there, so I can't participate, but HOT DAmn! that is one cool bathroom! Do the grass skirts go all the way down to the tub? And I just love the tiki toothbush mugs! So much cooler than the usual seaside bathrooms. Love the design;p
