1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / *ADULT THEMED* Happy Little Felt Penis! on: July 08, 2005 09:25:46 PM
I wasen't tired at 3am last night, so I wanted something fun and quick to make....so I came up with this haha. The penis is blocking it, but there is a banana on my shirt and it reads "Please don't peel me, I want to live!"

phallic goodness  Cheesy

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I have an ugly pair of jeans....so I am enlisting some help! on: June 18, 2005 05:07:16 PM
I have a pair of Levis. A really ugly pair. They are just medium blue with super slight distressing, and they are a little short.

Uglyness in fabric form.

So, I'm thinking about making capris from them, dying them a different color, and maybe distressing them.

I read the post above about distressing jeans, so I'm alright with that. The jeans are 98% cotton and 2% spandex. Is it possible to dye them? I'm not even sure how to dye jeans a "natural" color. But I do kind of like the base color on these jeans:

Just something a little more exciting then medium blue. I'm thinking maybe dying them black because it would be lighter in some areas?

ANY suggestions would be helpful, thanks! Cheesy
3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Pirate Fabric? on: June 17, 2005 11:10:54 PM
I've been looking *everywhere* for pirate fabric, but I've had no luck!

Well that's not entirely true, there was some at Joannes that looked like it was drawn by a 2 year old....I didin't really like it.

If anyone has any suggestions (either online or offline) it would be greatly appreciated!
4  California / California: Central / San Jose (or whoever!) craftsters....want to have a meetup? on: June 16, 2005 08:06:05 PM
I live in San Jose, and I think it would be really cool if we could have a meetup, at somewhere like Starbucks (or wherever we agree on!). We could decide then if we want to have a crafting group or something....is anyone interested?  Cheesy
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Any suggestions on how to make this bag? on: June 16, 2005 02:11:46 PM
I *LOVE* this bag from http://www.pacsun.com:

And I have the perfect fabric that I've been wanting to use on a purse. I was thinking maybe do sort of the "more rounder roomy bag tutorial", and just sew the top of thefabric closed, then add a tube of fabric to the top (on the wooden handles) that is longer so it bunches?

How does that sound? Thanks!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / ADULT: Condom Dispensing Robot! on: June 15, 2005 11:15:39 PM
I *really* hope this is alright to post, if not I will delete it!

Using the tutorial at this site: http://www.backseatkiss.com/pt.html, I made a condom dispensing robot!

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / First Floral Arrangement on: June 15, 2005 11:10:17 PM
This was my Christmas gift for my grandparents, and it was the first time I had ever attempted floral arranging. I've learned a *ton* since then, so I'm not to happy with this arrangement, but I know for next time! Smiley



Ignore the extra moss next to the vase...I forgot to clean that up haha  Grin
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Surfer Photoframe! Semi-tutorial also :) on: June 15, 2005 10:50:51 PM
Sorry for the bad quality of the picture, it was taken a few years ago with an older camera!

You Will Need:
-A piece of cardboard to act as your frame, it can be as big or as small as you'd like.
-Your photograph. I used the cover from the catalog http://www.swell.com
-An old necklace.
-An old pair of sunglasses. One of the "legs" on mine broke off, so I just broke off the other one.
-Strong Glue
-Xacto knife
-Wrapping paper! That's what makes the color of the frame.


1) Measure your picture on the piece of cardboard. Cut out the size with an exacto knife.

2) Put glue all over your frame, and measure out the wrapping paper to wrap the frame in.

3) String your necklace or beads around the outside of the frame.

4) Glue your picture to the BACK of the cardboard.

5) Glue your sunglasses to the top and your done!

It's not very sturdy or anything, but it's great for a decoration. I haven't put the "kickstand" part on the back, but that would be easy to figure out.

You could also just not put the sunglasses on, and make a series to hang on your walls!

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Sushi Ornaments! With short instructions on: June 15, 2005 10:44:02 PM
I apologize for the bad quality of the pictures, they were taken a couple of years ago on an older camera. I don't have step by step pictures, but feel free to ask ANY question!  Grin

I'm not sure if I saw this somewhere or if I made it up, it's been a couple of years...so if this has already been done, I apologize.

You Will Need:
-1 piece of black felt
-1 skein of white yarn
-1 skein of black yarn
-Small piece of string
-Measuring tape (optional)


1) Cut the felt into the length you want. I don't have exact measurements, since I just eyeball everything.

2) Take your red yarn, and match up the length to the length of the felt. Cut a bunch of pieces of yarn, and then tie them lightly together with the red string to form a bundle.

3) Measure the same length in your white yarn, and cut at least double the amount of red yarn. Start putting the white yarn around the red yarn. You can tie the new bundle of white and red yarn together if you'd like.

4) Wrap the piece of felt around your bundle, and glue together. Tie with red yarn (or whatever you'd like), and your finished!

5) Decorate your whole Christmas tree in different sushi's!

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My first felt creations! A monster-star-happy-blob and a snowman! on: June 15, 2005 10:00:29 PM
My first felt creations! One is just a "semi" monster, who looked better on paper. I attempted to make a mohawk, but that's as close as I could figure out how to do it. He has kind of a ninja headband thing to cover up the glue marks haha.

The snowman is for my mom who's in the hospital. I didin't think about adding beads to it until I sewed it together, or else he would of had a black beaded mouth with black beaded eyes. Oh well, at least I know for next time!

I know they both have the same facial expressions, but I *really*  like happy faces haha.

The fabric in the background is some I just bought at Joannes, and I will be making a comforter with!

EDIT: The red dots on the snowman are beads. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to jazz up the snowman? He seems a little plain to me.
