21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / 50's housewife... accessories? on: October 23, 2004 11:53:51 PM
I want to be a 50's housewife for halloween... what should i do to complete my ensemble? I've shown my costume to a few people and they don't know what i'm supposed to be- i just look like i'm going to a special event.  I made the pearls this afternoon! (they're plastic  Wink )

I was thinking maybe an apron or a feather duster or something. i have to go to school with it, so i need something i can just carry.
22  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Pink Penguin on: October 04, 2004 06:48:34 PM
Inspired by the felt monsters, i went and made a pink penguin! I was making it in front of my grandma, and she decided it needed a skirt. So now it is a ballerina penguin. I love it and plan on selling lots of different ones, like robots and dinosaurs and different penguins! I am so excited!
I used one and a half sheets of hot pink felt, one sheet of orange felt, and i used vintage buttons from my mom. I made the pattern myself!
23  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / Sublime Stitching in ELLEgirl! on: September 24, 2004 11:46:35 PM
Hi! I don't really embroider(yet! Cheesy ), but when i saw my new issue of ELLEgirl I just had to post! On page 24, or ELLEgirl's Wishlist, the sublime stitching website and skull patten are shown. the caption reads,"Aaargh, a hanky for my pirate!" lol.
 I nearly jumped out of my chair!
Congrats, sublime stitching!
24  California / California: South / Button Machines in Orange County on: September 24, 2004 11:14:07 PM
Is there a button maker retail store in orange county? (ie. Badge a Minit) Or maybe a badge making place that would be willing to show me what i'm getting into? I want to see an actual product before i invest... as a student this is a big purchase for me. I've been saving my pennies!
I've searched on the internet and in the yellow pages, but to no avail. Perhaps there is a little shop tucked away in north county....  Undecided
25  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Jon Stewart: First stenciling! on: September 18, 2004 07:47:03 PM
Jon Stewart!
He's my favorite fake-news-show host....
And the daily show is my favorite fake-news show.

I love this shirt, it's my first t-shirt stencil attempt! The white on black was kinda splotchy tho, i did two coats and used fabric medium. I'm glad i stopped at two coats, the paint is kinda hard right now!
I don't have the stencil anymore, however. I searched through my pictures to no avail.... this is the pic i used. I also used the logo.
Photoshop is like magic!
**Edit- i made another stencil. you might have to use your imagination while cutting, tho.
26  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / My books aren't boring! (at least the covers aren't.... ;) ) on: August 27, 2004 10:53:22 PM
Since i see my books all the time, i didn't want those little elastic book covers. With the help of craftsters(!) I have cool stenciled books now! yay!

I first covered them with brown paper shopping bags, then painted them with acrylic paint, then covered them with contact paper. And I found all the stencils on craftster.
NOW i'm ready to go back to school! Cheesy
27  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dreamcatchers on: July 12, 2004 01:18:45 AM
This is the first giant dream catcher i've made, and it was really fun! Its for a day camp that teaches peace- see http://faculty.fullerton.edu/syen/OCAEYC%20Peace%20Camp/website/040804OCAEYC_2004_Peace_Camp.html.htm for more info about the camp.
Every year we make a sculpture or display to display our theme. One year it was a giant peace sign covered with stereotypical toys and spraypainted white, another it was the great tree of peace associated with deganawidah and the talking stick(not a stick that talks),
This is supposed to be an alternative representation of a timeline.... campers write a historical event on a tag and tie it to the dreamcatcher- personal events go in the center (white), community events go in the yellow, national events go in the orange, and worldwide events go in the pink. I hope it turns out okay! Cheesy


i'm also going to put 'feathers' on it, in the form of little drawstring bags you can put little peaceful objects in.
Made of: mason line (colors joined with E6000), two large hula hoops, and blue/green cloth strips sewn together and secured to the hoops with E6000.
This was a great test of my new E6000 glue!
28  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / tshirt timeline quilt on: June 30, 2004 12:36:26 AM
Well, long story short, I volunteer at a peace focused day camp every year, and we have had eleven years of camp so far! I thought, "instead of lugging all these tshirts (we could lose them!) around, lets put them into a quilt!" so i did. I was particularly nervous because this was only my second quilt and some of these shirts were one of a kind. No messing up for me!
This is a display quilt, so no one will really be using it. Hence the tabs at the top.
The only problems i had were the tshirts stretching, and sometimes it made the squares and therefore the rows longer. It got kinda close on some of them....  Shocked The stretching made it difficult to stitch the two sides together, too.
each corner has a seed bead sewn in, mainly for decoration.
I also made a dandy drawstring carrying case for it from a bedsheet so it doesn't get dirty.  Smiley

(please ignore my foot.)

I am very proud of this quilt, and i am so sad i have to give it away!

 I hope no one else from the camp is on craftster, it's supposed to be a surprise! Cheesy  Wink
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / T-shirt waist? on: June 11, 2004 11:11:18 AM
Now that school's out, I wanted to try my hand at making a skirt. Looking at all the wonderful ideas at craftster, I saw a lot of miniskirts with stretchy t-shirt waists. (example: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=4945.0 )

Would that kind of waist work for a longer (i'm thinking knee length) skirt? Or would it be too heavy?
30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Starry Starry Wallet on: June 08, 2004 09:50:10 PM
Here is a new wallet, and i like to call it "starry starry wallet." I made it for a friend, and i'm getting better and quicker at making these! It is similar to my last wallet, key to my heart. I'm also proud of my new biz cards... Wink

There's more, so please check out ducttape.worldbreak.com!
