1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pink elephant? Oh yes! :) on: June 19, 2008 02:45:23 PM
So I was having one of those days where you feel completely worthless and miserable, you know? So I was talking to my friend Roberto and he totally lifted my spirits and made me feel better. Smiley I wanted to make him a little thank you gift and since he LOVES elephants I made him this. Smiley

And on the back I wrote a little thank you note. I'm going to give it to him tomorrow, hehe.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pouchy. on: September 24, 2006 08:31:47 AM
Woo! This is my money pouch that I just made last night. At first I planned for it to be a purse but it kept getting smaller and smaller until I got this. Grin I made it from orange felt and an old starry t-shirt.

Pouch (with my new puppy modeling!):

Thanks guys.  Cheesy
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Irons gone wrong. on: September 23, 2006 05:59:28 PM
I was melting some beads with my iron on the carpet floor of my apartment(what was I thinking?!) and the phone rings mid-craft and I ran up to catch it in time. When I come back I see that the iron is face down on the carpet. At once I lifed the iron and there was a nice iron-shaped hole in the carpet. Luckily I had some extra of that carpet and cut it to fit the whole. When I moved out the lanlord never even noticed! Hahah.

Share your iron-related crafts going wrong here.  Wink
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / It's Pebbles! on: August 13, 2006 09:09:24 PM
First REAALL post! Yayy!

Heh. I wanted to practice with my sewing machine so I attempted to do a reconstruction. This is the first clothing item I have ever made with a sewing machine, so it kinda stinks (really bad) but I'm quite proud anyways. Wink  I used my friend's old Pebbles t-shirt and part of another yellow shirt.

I got the idea from this cute recon : https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=108078.0.

Sorry about the bad quality of the picture! My camera is wayy out-dated.

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Wohoo! Future sewer here. :) on: July 11, 2006 12:02:16 PM
(Also wasn't exactly sure where to post this soo.. sorry if it's a mistake. Smiley)

My wonderful, totally awesome friends all pitched in and bought me a sewing machine for my birthday last Saturday! I was completely shocked. I've been thinking of starting up sewing (Because of all you freakishly awesome crafters on here!) and I thought it would be a nice thing to know both now so I can create clothes and purses and EVERYTHING for my friends, family, and myself; and in the future so I can make clothes for my children and they'll hopefully appreciate all the hard work and effort it takes.

Well anyways, I was very excited and then I realized I have NO idea how to sew. Hahaha. So I was wondering, should I go out and invest some money in classes or try to teach myself.

And also, any tips for a horrible beginner? Maybe what to start out with.. the average price for the lessons.. nice fabric stores. You know the dealio.

Hehe, I'm excited. Thank you all!
6  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / Craft sale? on: July 09, 2006 12:24:02 AM
Have any of you run a small craftsale at any point in your time living on earth?

Hahah. Well, I'm in this club in my highschool called HOPE and basically we collect money, food, presents for Christmas, easterbaskets for Easter and then we send them all to needy families, organizations, or countries. (It's a pretty awesome club. Makes you get that wonderful feeling inside. Smiley)

Like one time we made a bunch of easterbaskets for the children's hospital and for battered women and children and some of the members (including myself) went to the hospital to give the baskets and I just .. can't describe the feeling. It's the most wonderful feeling in the world. I'm sure you guys have felt this feeling so many time. (Oh my gosh.. I'm actually tearing up? Haha)

Well anyways heh, I was thinking instead of the normal bakesales we could have a craftsale! Smiley I can make some jewelry and so can my friends. We can be creative sometimes. Wink And anyways.. I'd just like to know if any of you had any tips on what the buyers like to buy (So we have ideas) or maybe how to run it, how much stuff, you know.. the important stuff. Cheesy

I'd really like to have several craftsales throughout the year because I think it could really bring in some money for the club so we can hopefully help even more people. Hopefully this whole thing will take off and will be extremely helpful!

Yeah, so ANY tips whatsoever would be GREATLY appreciated. Hehe, thanks so much.
