31  Froebel's Stars in Winter Holidays by aml on: December 05, 2006 04:46:16 AM
I love Stars, and whenever the winter season starts and I find access curling ribbon, I start to make Froebel's Stars. So this are some of the results.

My mother send me some green, and since I don't have any ornaments I'm adding a star or two each day made from ribbon of may advent calender:

I hope you like it.

32  awesome easy-to-make advent calendar in Winter Holidays by aml on: December 05, 2006 04:32:33 AM
My boyfriend always says he can't craft, but look what he gave to me

I forgot to take picture of the one, I gave to him. But it's basically made the same way as his. Just fold little bags/bonbons, put your goodies inside and put them on a string.

I don't know, but I would try to avoid the zipper and just make something similar to my little drawing.

just take a peace of fabric, fold it so that it overlaps (hem the border first), sew along the red line, cut out the blue opening (hem that, too Wink ). Cut away the extra fabric, turn it the right way and stick the hat water bottle through the gap in the back (orange arrow)...

hope that helps

re: herrnhuter stern - omg its so CLEAN and PERFECT wow. And the tutorial is so wow too. All my stars still look completely sloppy compared to that, and someone once counted like 80 or 90 hanging from my ceiling, so I don't know how I'll ever get them that *perfect* if I haven't managed to yet. Wow.

Thank  you Cheesy, I think your stars are just as perfect as mine. Pictures tend to show another realty, mine is not as perfect as it looks. Respect for doing as many stars as you already did. I usually tend to need a break after about five stars before I am ready to do new ones.

Are the mini lightbulbs little like christmas lights? if you use lights that can burn out, how to you leave an openable and closeable space to get inside and change the bulb if it burns out? I have a big metal lamp from ebay that looks like its the same shape except on the 3-sided spaces, its flat instead of a point, and one of the 4-sided points is on a hinge to open up and change the bulb.
I guess thy are like little christmas lights, it's like a E5,5 lightbulb, if that helps.
I just leave one opening instead of a point, that is what the "square frame" in my tutorial is for, to keep the star stable at the opening.

That way the air can circulate in and out of the star and prevent it from incinerating. Once it hangs somewhere one doesn't really notice there is a point missing.

35  corset style top with two different skirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by aml on: April 03, 2006 01:24:41 PM
So, I made these last year and always waited for better pictures, but since I still didn't get a chance to take better ones I thought I'd post them anyways.

The top. I really liked the embroidery, but next time I try to make a corset, I'll take a stronger fabric. It's not a lot of fun getting your armpits scratched by these wires working through the fabric...

long skirt (for the wedding of a friend)

and a short skirt for less formal occasions:

sorry for the blurriness of the pictures and thanks for looking

What does a girl do, who doesn't want to learn quantum mechanics? right! she makes a star.
And this is the result:

and together with my physics script, exam was yesterday

Since I do like tutorials and I got a new digicam and webcam to play with, I decided to make a tut right along.

Thanx for looking
