1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Easy T-shirt "huge to form fitting" tutorial for sewing newbie? on: May 18, 2008 12:13:31 PM
I hope this is the right place to ask. I'm looking through all the T shirt recon tutorials, and I am scared!
The last time I sewed was probably twenty years ago.
I have a ton of Tshirts that are WAY to big. I would like to make them more form fitting and possibly cut the neck so it's a V-neck and somehow shows off the girls better.
I would settle for just cutting down the sides though!
Thanks in advance.

My friend made these and I thought they were cool.  Grin

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Is it ok to post a friend's jewelry? (pic heavy) on: September 17, 2007 09:53:08 PM
I hope this isn't bad form, but I just wanted to post a friend's work here because I think it rocks. She's been feeling down lately so I thought I'd post it for her.
She likes to incorporate antique buttons into her work.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Question about fleece (making curtains) on: November 28, 2006 06:47:27 AM
I know nothing about sewing or fabric, but I am going to try to make some fleece curtains for our huge drafty windows in an effort to lower our gas bill this year.
I've looked at a couple of stores, and they have different kinds of fleece. There is some that is cheap and some that is more expensive, and I can't tell the difference. Would it be worth it to spend more on the more expensive fleece? Do you think its warmer? It doesn't seem to be any thicker.

Also I saw that Target had some "microfleece" blankets on sale. They were $15 for any size, including King. So I'm thinking maybe I'll just buy some of those and then try to use the hem as the part that the curtain rod goes into.

But what is microfleece? Does anyone know?
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / leftover halloween face paint on: November 05, 2006 07:00:18 PM
I thought it might be fun to do something with it, but since its washable with soap and water, would it really work as a paint or a dye?
I have some creamy stuff I got at the dollar store in six colors and then half a tube left of fake blood. When my husband washed the fake blood off, it still left a mark on his skin for a day or two, so maybe it would work as a dye.
I have some light colored cheapo yarn I might try to dye, but I don't know how to do that.
Any other ideas? Could I use it as paint on wood?
6  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Have you heard of a glass paint that frosts it? on: November 05, 2006 02:09:46 PM
I'm asking this for a friend. She said that she's seen someone who had some kind of a clear paint that you put on glass. You paint it on and the glass frosts over. She said that its not etching creme, so I don't know what it could be.
Any ideas?
Thanks for your help!
7  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / poly clay swap anyone? on: November 01, 2006 01:31:42 PM
I posted about this in the swap section but I don't know if anyone here reads on there. It seems like there haven't been any PC swaps.
Would anyone be interested? I was thinking we could do things like get rid of tools we don't use, or maybe raw canes we have no use for, or even scrap clay we're sick of.
Other ideas might be finished items of course, beads, findings, or even bars of the clay itself if someone can't get a certain brand where they live or they just want to try a new kind of clay.
Or we could surprise each other with odd kinds of clay like the eraser or bendy kinds.

Is anyone interested?  Tongue
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Any interest in a polymer clay swap? on: October 31, 2006 09:04:46 PM
I've never been in a swap before, mostly because I can never find one that is for polymer clay, but I haven't been on here that long either.

Is there any interest in this? We could swap tools, clay, finished pieces, raw canes, even scrap clay we don't know what to do with.

9  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Question about fried marbles on: October 31, 2006 09:01:36 PM
I've been dying to try this, and then I remembered I had some oval and kidney bean shaped glass "marbles" from the dollar store. I tried a couple of different techniques: first fried them and dropped them into very cold ice water, then boiled them and dropped them into the ice water.
Then I did it the other way around, and I could only get slight crackling and one of them broke.
Do you think I'm doing something wrong, or are these just the wrong shape or type of glass for this to work?
10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Cute ewok costume for a toddler on: October 24, 2006 03:10:47 PM
We told my mother in law that we were thinking about getting a Star Wars themed costume for the little girl, and we wanted an ewok costume but couldn't find any.
So she made this.

Its supposed to have the front part under the chin snapped but she was kind of upset about the hat in the first place so we left it undone.
