1  Illinois / Illinois: North / Re: Cool Chicago Crafter Peeps wanna get together? on: September 23, 2007 08:21:07 PM
I'm also new to Chicago, and seeking to re-build my social circle. I'd totally go to the Pilsen Art Walk, but i'm out of town for the weekend.

Maybe there can be a meet-up arranged if enough bodies are interested?
I live in West Town btw.

Here is the result of my work!
My boyfriend really loves it, and uses it ALL THE TIME! It is a super great gift for boyfriends or brothers who are hard to get stuff for.

I sat with my brother and boyfriend for 10 hours to get one last night!
hmm... a felted cozy would be cool.
Or even a bag that had special pockets for the nun-chucks and controllers and games so that you could transport it to friends homes.
You could make a Wii care package, and put some extra batteries in there for the controllers!

This thread is so long there's no way i can look through the whole thing! But, I'm going to say that my Secret compartment book I made for my boyfriend last valentine's day was a huge success.
I found an old book on greek plays at a used book store, and followed some of the tutorial pages that you can find using the search. I put some felt on the bottom to make it more classy, and then posted a picture of his favorite philosopher, Jon Locke, in the front (he has a philosophy degree). This is a cool gift for siblings, or even someone you don't know well, just cause it's so rad.
Here are some pics:

I might also be at the last minute... I finished my largest item today, and have some small ones to do this week. But this is just to let you know that things are in action, and i've been in contact with my partner regularly. Can't wait to see the results!

First, I like the record player idea. But changing records can get really tedious, so if you want to enjoy yourself make sure there is someone designated to switch the records. There are tons of records of $1 at thrift stores, and even piles in record stores, where you could find appropriate ones to match your theme.
If you are going to 50s vintage, a fondu pot would be a good appetizer to have also.
Your ideas so far are awesome! post some pictures when the final event actually happens!

wait a sec- can these function as real cameras? My room mate bought a small $10 camera from a store that takes really funky digital photos, which reminded me of these.
if not, they are still cute.
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: skirt with *questionably awesome* fabric: yay or nay? on: October 27, 2006 10:36:42 AM
your mom and her friends are wrong. the fabric looks great. It is the type of look that is only really appropriate once in a while, so don't fret too much about the lazy sewing job you did. As far as i can tell, it looks more than acceptable. bravo!  keep trusting your instincts.
