1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / help with kenmore sewing machine? on: September 19, 2007 01:25:59 PM
my aunt recently gave me her old sewing machine that she hadn't been using.
she assured me everything was in proper working condition, but she could find the manual.
it's a kenmore by sears, model # 158.13200.
my mother has a kenmore manual that's very similar to my sewing machine, so this afternoon i just tried to wind a bobbin.
so i got the wheel to move and the needle to stop moving;
however, the bobbin part isn't spinning. this is a problem? and, according to my mothers manual, i'm missing the bobbin winder tension disc? this might be why it's not working, but i don't see how missing this part makes the bobbin thing stop moving. ugh i don't know.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / wall hangings (: on: July 27, 2007 08:11:11 PM
haven't posted here in agesss.
hope this is the right place!

my father had a couple of pieces of scrap wood lying around, and i was in a crafty mood, so i painted on them. one went off as a graduation present, and the other was a birthday present.

sorry the pictures are terrible quality, my real camera is currently undergoing surgery.

i do have a question, though; where can i get scrap wood like the pieces above? i don't really want to pay a lot, if anything, for it.

sorry in advance for the horrid picture quality.
i keep trying to save for a new camera, but i always spend my savings.

i'll try to take some more in the sunlight, perhaps.

1. three buttons. two normal, red, round ones in the back, and a small red leaf one in the front. i guess it looks sortof fallish. simplistic.

2. lizards<3 i put holes through their heads using a bead reamer (i think that's what it's called) and twisted straight pins through them.

3. jarjar binks pog! i put a hole through the top using a dremmel and put some clear nail polish over the hole just in case.

4. i don't remember what this piece of hardware is called. it's probably something really simplistic like, eyeholescrewthingy. uhm. i was cleaning my room one time and found tons of rusty nails and assorted pieces of hardware. this was included. i think it's cute.

5. this is my favorite. i wish the picture came out better. its a small washer, and blue jewel pendant, and a dolphin charm put together with jump rings. i call it; sea world. or something like that. maybe i'll borrow a friend's camera and take picture's of them.

ps; i wear two different earrings at once, if you were wondering why i only have one of each (:

sorry, again, for the craptastic pictures. hopefully i'll have better ones up soon!

& i'm considering doing a personal/private swap with somebody within the US. anybody interested?
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sweatshirt recon+no sleeves! (pic heavy!!) on: June 25, 2006 05:56:25 PM
so, i bought this extra large sweatshirt at warped last summer (because it was the last size available) and i never wore it. and since it cost me $30, i decided i should try and make it wearable, because i'm not an extra large.
so i took in the sides. i also took in the sleeves, but since it's summer, i'll sew them on later.
i think it looks kindof silly without sleeves, but my friends whose sewing machine i borrowed said it looked fine.
sorry about the picture size, sortof big.




other side

hood + giggles

hood + unzipped + emo face.

btw, sorry about my frizzy hair. it was raining out.
thanks for looking<3
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / $14? i can make that for free! on: June 01, 2006 03:41:24 PM
so, i was browsing the fredflare website.
because i think a lot of their stuff is really neat.
but then i saw these.

^link to product information.

i know i have a million of those plastic bead things and different plate shapes.
they're selling these for fourteen dollars!
can you say, "DUH."

so i'm probably going to make a bunch with different colors and such.
and i think you should too. because it's quick&cheap&painless.
unless you burn yourself on the iron.

just a thought.

proof that i got my rabies vacc. =)

kitty tag from my cats vet visit.
and an Izze bottle cap that i drilled a small hole in.
i want to do it to some jone's soda, too.

sorry for the poor picture quality, the macro setting on my camera is crapola.
actually, everything about my camera is crapola.
7  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / found my camera's self timer :] on: May 13, 2006 10:56:33 AM
so after having my new digital camera for a little over six months, i finally found the self timer.
the directions it came with were worthless, and didn't explain anything.
it's not the greatest camera, but you get what you pay for. it was only around $80 at Walgreens.

i also fooled around with the lighting and such in the program that came with the camera.
i think the program is worth the $80 itself :]

i dunno.
i wanted to show off my new shirt that i bought from the new, non-puppy murdering wet seal.
only $4!

anyway. does anyone else have this camera or something similar to it?
i have it on the highest quality setting, but the pictures still don't come out that great.
have any tips for the macro setting?
8  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / batman shirt<3 on: May 03, 2006 01:59:43 PM
so i had this plain shirt that i wanted to spruce up, and what better way than batman?
i got the stencil from stencilry
it was a total pain to cut out, but it wasn't too hard.
i screwed up on the mouth. so now it's a black bar. and it looks sortof silly, but ohwell.

i bought these letters from joanns that you iron on. "BATMAN" on the back.

so. yeah.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / BATMAN?! [pictureheavy] on: April 23, 2006 04:21:42 PM
i bought this awesome batman fabric at walmart like, last year.
and it's been sitting in my drawer.
so a couple of weeks ago i went down to my friends house to use her sewing machine because i don't have one (i'm saving up).
i made up the pattern as i went along.
here's the end result.
i hand-sewed a pocket on today, and i figured i'd upload pictures while i was in the mood.

wearing the bag. & my lovely. face.

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / first time with wire&beads :] on: March 13, 2006 12:17:27 PM
I bought some flexable wire at the store a few weeks ago, and this is what I've done so far. Nothing too special. And sorry for the horrid quality. I have a cheap camera.

I made these earrings for my friend holly's birthday.

I made this necklace for my friend melissa's birthday.

I made this bracelet for my friend hillary's birthday. It took soooo long.

Then I made this bracelet for me with some fake pearls I found lying around.

Again, sorry for the lighting and the blurry-ness of the pictures. My camera's lamexcore.
