1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Question for someone with a swarovski cosmic ring on: July 26, 2009 09:07:05 PM
my boyfriend wanted to give me an engagement ring entirely made of swarovski xD (we recently saw a store in a ritzy mall devoted to the crystals.. it was breathtakingly beautiful!)  I saw the "cosmic rings" and thought that might work.  Can someone with one tell me what the inner diameter is on the 20 mm ring? (I'm assuming the 20 is the outer diameter...)

And if anyone has other ways to make such a ring, please chime in =)
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / extra wide shower curtain on: January 01, 2009 02:11:33 AM
My family will be moving into a new place and the shower is the kind where the shower curtain has to wrap around one long side and one short side of the tub (half the perimeter).  I can't find a shower curtain that's "extra wide" ANYWHERE!  Do the still exist? (the building is from the 1930's)  and how hard is it to make one shower curtain, possibly from two?  or maybe a giant vinyl tablecloth... any ideas?  I would just sew two together, but that would look tacky... unless i made a patchwork shower curtain!?   Huh
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my first success =D on: June 04, 2008 01:34:41 AM
I made a waistband from the bottom part of a knit shirt (kmart, $3)  that shrunk up and out (got short and fat, you get what you pay for).  I took a square piece of fabric (from my mom's 20 something year old stash), cut a hole in the middle and sewed the waistband to it.  Got the idea from looking at https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148040.msg1462738#msg1462738

I'm on the short side, so I left the waistband long that way because it seemed to make me look taller and thinned out my flabby thighs. This is my first successful recon and took my 3 hours because i kept threading my machine wrong xD

ok so here's a pic:

5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / V necks are not my friend! on: August 05, 2007 10:06:11 PM
Hello guys I need your help! (craftster people rock)

I have a formal event to go to on Saturday, and I want to wear a dress my mom made me.  i was suppsoed to wear it to prom, but my bra showed up under the deep v neck so i ditched it last minute.  i want to make it up to her by wearing it to my friend's debut.  here's what it looks like:


The dress fits fine, but I'm a nursing mom wearing a nursing bra, so it tend to show up with the deep v neck.  How can i cover up the bra and not look awkward?  I figure those who can't go braless like us would be able to help =) The dress is buttercup yellow by the way.  thanks! <30
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / So I want to make a mobile... on: March 03, 2007 10:57:07 PM
I'm trying to figure out how to make a mobile for my baby (due at the end of this month!).  At kmart I found these cute plush peep bunnies, just like the marshmellows but made of fabric instead!  I have four of them.  (they were 5.99, but rang up at only .59!  =D Practically free!!)  I can figure out the frame part to dangle them from, but how would I attach it to the crib?  I can't just hang it from the ceiling...
Anyways, thanks for looking! =D
7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My three creations on: February 06, 2007 12:26:30 AM
These are (the) three dolls I've made ever.. lol.  They are in chronologogical order from left to right.  The first one has no legs because it's the first thing I ever made on my own!  The second one is made from an old sock and is supposed to be my boyfriend, complete with the chain wallet =P  For the pants I used scraps from old jeans xD The last one is part of a project I made for school last year.  It used to have a big styrofoam ball (representing all of society) strapped around her ankle, like a ball and chain.  I don't know what happened to it.  The faces were done with marker, embroidery (well i tried anyway) and paint.  I think I've improved over the years  Cheesy

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Simple but I'm still lost! (t shirt stenciling.. sorta) on: July 04, 2006 02:56:14 AM
My boyfriend loves MUSE almost as much as I do, and he used the cover of one of their albums in an artproject for school so when I saw a tshirt with that design, I wanted to get it for him becuse it would have been perfect. By the time I convinced my mom to buy it, the shirt was long gone from the store (OMFG! T.T)  So now I'm going to make him one =D

Here's the cover:

I was thinking I could just get a yellow shirt and then use that freezer paper technique I found in the sraftster blog, but then i saw the white.  I really want to make this shirt perfect so i was wondering how i'd get white on a yellow shirt?  I've had bad experience with paint and white on yellow seems bad.  Is that my only option?  Help me please!!  (what about spray paint? xD has anyone every tried that on a shirt before?)  Thank you for reading =]
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / XXXL shirt into skirt (so many first!) on: April 15, 2006 02:22:00 AM
I came across this site today, and i'm posting my first successful recon in the same day =D  hehehe.. i actually got this idea before i found this site, so i feel proud  (even tho it's horribly simple)  Cheesy

I found this red shirt at ross.  It's a triple extra large. I paraded around in the store for a half hour pretending it was a skirt, trying to decide if i should buy it. (as i had never sewn on a machine before, and i'm lazy xD)  I went home without it, since $11 on a maybe seemed too risky (i don't finish projects!!)  But then I told my boyfriend about it and he was like "that'd be cool, you should have got it"  So I went back and found a nice big one... plump and juicy, just waiting for ms. scissors!! ^0^

I had my experienced mom (tho she doesn't do recons)  help me figure it out.. and finished it while she was napping  Roll Eyes  I'm quite proud, especially since i made a huge mistake and got the skirt all sewn wierd, and yeah.. I love my seam ripper.

And here's the finished product!

(hahah.. boob shadow)  Like my haircut? I got it yesterday (and yes, that's the top of the shirt)
