1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Question about painting purses???? on: November 09, 2008 09:00:15 PM
I was looking at Vivien Cheng's Etsy page: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5770862

and it made me want to paint on my own bags. What kind of paint would be good to use on leather bags like these??


Also she talks about having to put several layers of paint on her bags. Is there a certain technique to painting handbags??
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Ninja Turtle costume alteration HELP!!! on: October 24, 2008 10:38:11 AM
I know all my craftsters out there have brilliant minds. So, I was wondering if you could lend me your magnificent brains for this project.

So here's what's up. I have this boy's Ninja turtle costume. Size 7-8. Standard 100% polyester spandexy looking basic halloween costume:

The legs fit. The top fits. But not together aka the torso is too short and when the costume is put on my body in full, it gives a major wedgie. Not cute.

So, I was thinking of lengthening the costume by adding the old school monogram belt (circled in blue) that the turtles wore:

But problem is I don't know how. Solutions?

Keep in mind that I am very limited in resources so anything that has to do with overlock machines I can't really do. But I do live near a hobby lobby! Thanks for the help!!!

My little cousin has been the runner up for the past two years' costume contests, and my aunt really wants him to win this year.

It can be ideas for home-made costumes, or store bought ones.

I'm an officer for a club at my school called SWAAT (Students working together against AIDS), and we're trying to raise money by selling bracelets that promote AIDS awareness. So, I was thinking somewhere along the style of this bracelet:

But what should I put instead of the skulls? And does anyone know where I can find tutorials for making this?

And if anyone else has different bracelet ideas I'll be more than happy to accept them!
