11  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Craftster Itself / photobucket widget on: June 29, 2008 06:51:47 PM
I usually use the photobucket widget for uploading my photos. When i click the img link in the widget it says copied, but when i try to paste it in the post it is in fact not copied. is this a craftster glitch or a photobucket glitch? just wanted to make sure you knew about it if it's something you can fix. thanks!!!
12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / 4 kid dresses...TONS of pictures... NOW WITH ACTION SHOTS :) on: June 29, 2008 06:28:06 PM

So I'm going to visit family next month and wanted to make some outfits for my nieces. One is about 5 months old and the other is 3 i think. anyway, the 2 for the baby came from the same pattern and the 2 for the big girl came from the same pattern.

number 1:

this one has the cinderella patch on the bottom that i can't decide whether to put on or not.

number 2:

the adorable pockets...my favorite part

dresses for the baby
number 3 with bloomers:

number 4:

this one is actually a romper.

my first successful attempt at snap tape!

i have no idea how this part got so messed up  Huh

i'm so excited to see them in action!!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / bag of awesomenesss for my man on: June 24, 2008 05:43:19 PM
i made this bag for my husband. he told me exactly what he wanted pockets for, and exactly how he wanted them to be. and i made it up. it is for him to carry all his "toys" and other necessary things to work and stuff.

the buckles aren't real, there are magnetic snaps behind each

back side with dedicated kindle ande zune pockets

front side with pouch pockets (and snap enclosure on each one)

secret pockets i accidently made behind each pouch
14  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / fakey buckles on: June 08, 2008 11:58:37 AM
i'm trying to make a bag for my husband with fakey buckles similar to this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=118438.0

my question is, can this be done with this type of buckle: http://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=8897455

i don't have any in my possession and i can't really figure out in my head how those actually buckle. is it possible? thanks for any help!
15  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / what do i do when my fabric is thick? on: June 08, 2008 11:51:37 AM
i am making a messenger bag with vinyl outside and a suede-ish lining. can i cut the lining and the outside the same size or does the lining need to be smaller to make up for the bulk of the vinyl?
16  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 28 ENTRIES / ikea fabric chair taken over by my cat on: June 03, 2008 11:19:34 AM
closeup teaser/thumbnail pic  Tongue  i love this fabric

I was really excited about this challenge because I have been way to busy with school to participate in any all year. And then we lucked out when my husband got some free chairs from work. I had gotten the fabric originally for pillows but when I saw the challenge, it was perfect.

so, on to pictures!


i unscrewed and ripped off the seat, then stapled the fabric down. the back of the chair does not come off so i sort of had to just stuff the fabric in the edges around the arms.

the overall view. my cat has seriosuly adopted this chair. even when i am sitting in it she jumps up and sits behind me.

back/side view

any comments or criticisms welcome. thanks for looking!
17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / very specific commissioned bag on: June 03, 2008 09:13:21 AM
My husband has asked me to make him a bag to carry all his toys (electronics) to work. he wants it to be very stiff (like leather maybe) and almost entirely pockets for each device. Any ideas on what sort of fabric would be ideal for this? The pockets would be on the inside walls and i want to be sure all his things are protected from any damage. I don't even know where to start! thanks for any advice
18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / a few cloth diapering questions on: March 15, 2008 07:04:45 PM
hello all! i am looking for some help with some cloth diapering questions. i am looking into cloth diapering for my not-yet-conceived offspring.  Tongue so i have a few questions:

1.) how do i know which diapers need covers?
2.) is it much more difficult to put a diaper and a cover on a squirmy baby than just a diaper?
3.) when you use a cover do you also have to pin or snappie or velcro the diaper?
4.) what is the one thing you wish someone had told you before you invested in what you did?

I guess i am just going to make a few of each style that appeals to me most and start from there. i don't know which are better and i am terrible at decisions!! any other advice?

19  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / leather couch help on: January 18, 2008 12:16:52 PM
has anyone ever made a slipcover for a leather couch? i'm inheriting a leather couch, but i don't particularly like leather. would it still work or would slide around or something? and any idea how i would make one when i can't cut of the old fabric for a pattern?

any tips would be greatly appreciated!
20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / cute and kind of easy baby blanket on: January 17, 2008 10:01:30 AM
i made this blanket for my niece who is due in march thanks to this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=83388.0

i had some trouble with the binding, personally. it bunched a little and the corners didn't line up on both sides (as you can see in the second picture), but i'm pretty happy with it.

it's 2 layers of snuggle flannel and blanket binding.

the one side says "i love mommy i love daddy"
