1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Princess Leia with a few pictures of her sister Rock Lobster! on: November 02, 2008 05:48:43 AM
I decided to go as Princess Leia this year, and boy did I have fun!  My first craftser challenge

Myself and my R2 unit.  He was a very functional purse that night and held everything we needed and more.

Me with my DDC defender, hood up.

My costume was made by using an old bed sheet for the dress, I was afraid it would be too cold as were known for the freezing halloweens, but thankfully this halloween was just perfect.  My belt was made from a pair of old pleather pants (I knew I was holding onto them for a reason) painted white with foam board for the silver parts hot glued with glass counters in the middle painted silver.  Everything for my belt was hot glued.  My R2 was a $2.00 garbage can, I bondo'ed his head closed, but it was too sloppy for my liking so I paper machied it and then started from there.  Everything is spray paint and foam.  The blaster was made by taking my Dremmel to a dollar store cap gun and then caulking my PVC pipe and end cap onto it, as well as telephone cord to get the proper look.  A lot of fun and even met some other star wars folks at the pub, Obi-Wan was sitting at our table all night.

Here are a few pictures of my sisters costume, she wanted to be a rock lobster (B-52 song) so we had a lot of fun doing this one.

Her costume was made with fabric, stuffing, and old broken Venetian blinds to support her claws and give definition to her tail.  Her eyes and antenna were ping pong balls and pipecleaners.
2  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Star wars drinking glasses! on: July 27, 2008 04:04:06 PM
Figured I can post these now, they were made for a swap and my partner received.  They are dishwasher safe, which is an added bonus.  This was my first time doing any painting on glasses, I had so much fun making these, now I think I shall make some cool glasses for our house. 


Star wars logo, Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Leia Organa-Solo.

Let me know what you think.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Star Wars Imperial Seal Purse on: June 03, 2008 07:27:04 PM
My old purse was in pretty bad shape, and I could not find a new one that I liked.  So I decided to make my own! (I needed a new place for my blaster pistols.) Grin

I think now I would have done things different, next time maybe.  Like not try to sew through 4 layers of canvas with my little machine. This was my first time making a purse and I had no patterns (and changed my mind halfway through sewing) also, this is my first time attempting piping and I am rather pleased with it.
The piping is not as wonky as it looks in the photos, my camera died after squeezing off these 4.  I still have a few finishing touches to make, but was too excited to wait.  Ironically I went to the library today and rented a few star wars books (no I did not stage the photo, they were still in my bag from work.)

Anyways, onto photos...

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Full Persian Chainmaille Bracelet. on: September 12, 2007 09:57:41 PM
I just finished this a few days ago, and I love it.  Wanting to know what all the other craftsters think.  Sorry about the quality of the photos, what can you do when you have a borrowed web cam? Tongue

5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Large applique question on: May 20, 2007 05:31:50 PM
I am extremely new to quilting ( told my boyfriend I'd make him a quilt and have never made a quilt.)  I want to put a large skull on it, and was figuring applique would be the method I would use. 

I am wanting this skull to take up 1/2 - 3/4's of the quilt, just wondering how everyone makes their applique patterns.

Like, would you get the picture you wanted and then enlarge it?  Or would you print it out on multiple pieces of paper, tape them all together, and then cut the fabric?

Thanks for any tips, advice, and whatever else.

6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Freezer Paper Residue? on: April 27, 2007 07:18:09 AM
I don't know how, but I managed to get a whole whack of freezer paper residue on one of my black shirts, I tried washing it to get it out, but no luck.  Does anyone know a way to get rid of freezer paper residue??
7  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Celtic Cross - cross stitch on: December 19, 2006 07:35:12 PM
This is the first pictures posted of one of my finished projects.  I did this for a friend as a thank you present.  I was going to give it to him on the date completed (Dec. 12) but I stepped on the picture frame.  I finally got a new frame ( I like this one better than the original one.)  

There is gold between the black and red in the outline and the center of the cross.  I hope these links work, let me know if they don't.

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Question about a blanket. on: November 17, 2006 07:27:08 PM
I have a question, I decided to knit my boyfriend a blanket (for our king size bed)  And I was silly enough to knit it on 5.5mm needles; now that I'm almost done (3 months later)  I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on needle size/yarn weight to make it go by faster; if I decide to make one for his daughters bed (now she wants one to.) Wink  Thanks to anyone who responds, muchly appreciated.
9  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Need help with a x-stitch pattern on: September 29, 2006 08:00:07 PM
I was wondering if someone could help me convert this into a cross-stitch pattern.  My boyfriend has just had a major knee sugury, and he has to go back next week for radiation treatments; unfortunatly I am not able to be there to help him through this.

So if someone could please help me by making this into a pattern, I don't care what size; it would be muchly appreciated.

10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Discussion and Questions / Questions about embroidery. on: July 03, 2006 11:23:48 AM
I feel like such a dingus asking this but:

I am an avid cross-stitcher and would like to get into embroidery.  I can't find any information about washing embroidered items.  So my guess is, just to hand wash it?  As well, has anyone had troubles with stitched coming a bit loose after regular wear and tear?  I'm just trying to cover all my bases before I dive in head first.

Thanks ladies!
