1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Summer Bag Swap Gallery!! on: August 11, 2006 02:59:43 PM
I recieved my bag from moilulu Yesterday.  It's so funny!!  I'll post pics when i get back into town.  I have to say that it's the most creative bag that i've ever seen in my life.  I love it!!! 

Thanks moilulu for all the effort and thought you put into it!! 

moilulu:  If you have pics you should definantly post them because people should be able to take a look at the beautiful bag as soon as possible.  I'm not even going to bother describing it.  You need to see a picture to understand how fun it is. 
2  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Vegetarians getting proper iron intake ??? on: June 26, 2006 03:11:55 PM
So i have recently turned vegetarian (like 4 months ago).  I have way more energy, my skin is soo clear and healthy, and i just feel better overall.  I did all sorts of research before taking the plunge, so i know how to maintain my protein and calcium intake and such, my only concern is iron.

I've read and heard that even if you eat food like spinach and pumpkin seeds that are high in iron, your body has a hard time absorbing it, unlike the iron you get from red meat.  i've read up in vegetarian mulitvitamins, but am afraid that i'll come across this same absorbsion issue.

Any other veggies out there with some sort of solution? i also thought that this would be a good board for ppl with questions about vegetarians keeping healthy and ideas for food with all the vitamins minerals, and protein needed.

Your dress is so beautiful.  did your use corset clips in the back? I can't tell what you used, anyways the attention to detail especially in the back is wonderful!  I bet you have red fuzz and threads oll over your house for days after making it!!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: Purses are so easy to make!! NOW WITH HOBO BAG TUTORIAL!! on: June 20, 2006 01:31:35 AM
Can someone please help me with this.

Then out of the interfacing cut out two pieces: 15 1/2'' X 8 1/2'' Iron these onto the wrong side of the outer fabric.  Iron the square piece of interfacing onto the wrong side of the outer fabric too.  Then sew up the sides of the two lining pieces right sides together, do the same for the outer fabric
Do I sew up both sides?

Pin the lining fabric and the outer fabric along the top edge right sides together.  Sew along the top edge and pull the lining through keeping the wrong sides facing out.
Am I stitching through all four pieces of fabric with the two outer pieces together and the two inner pieces together?  If not, how do I correctly align the fabric?

Yes you sew up both sides and for the other question after sewint the lining fabric together up the sides and then the outer fabric together up the sides, you do sew the outer to the inner fabric together along the top edge.

I hope that makes sense!!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / 50s A-Line Skirt on: June 04, 2006 09:59:12 PM
I posted this on the reg board and it disappeared really quickly.  Thought i'd try posting it here where people may find it useful.  I love these style of skirts that come just below the knee.  Got the fabric for really good price.

I felt like a 50s housewife wearing it, so i thought the vacuum and martini paired with it were a nice touch.  When i asked my boyfriend to take the pic, he made bad jokes about me not knowing how to even use the vacuum.  Ha ha, i explained that i am a modern housewife:  I have a job, like crafting, cooking, politics and not cleaning.  Anyways, here it is:


I lined the skirt and added three layers of lace that i got for 10 cents a meter.  It peeks out of the bottom of the skirt and when i sit you see the multiple layers of lace.


It ripples really cute in the back.  I used simplicity's 4591 pattern.  It has a zipper dowm the side with a hook and eye at the top.  I had a lot of problems with the sizing, which i rarely do with simplicity patterns.  I had to take it in 2 inches on both sides!!  It was an ego booster, but a pain nonetheless.

Feedback and questions appreciated!  Cheesy

I love this!!  It's so much fun.  I bet you turn lots of heads on the street wearing this, because it's so cool and flirty!!  Congrats!!
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: come one! come all! post pics of your tattoos! on: May 29, 2006 04:47:02 PM
Here are my tattoos.

This one i drew in the car on the way to the tattoo parlour.  It's on the right side of my lower back.  I wish i'd had his shoes brown and not black.  THey kinda look like dancing shoes.  I'm Danish and my family is relatively traditional in realtion to the culture.  I got it after my Morfar (grandpa) passed away.  He would have gottem a kick out of it.  As far as he was concerned the vikings invented everything.

This one my sisters and i all have.  My colour is kinda patchy cuz it really effing hurt and i kept wiggling.  I may get it touched up eventually.
