1  Re: Show off your hair! And questions about hair styles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by sugarhigh on: September 17, 2006 06:21:45 PM
wow i got to page like, 265 mostly today but some from another day
and it's amazing.
so i dyed my hair about a month ago with sfx purple and although it dyed everything else purple too, my hair hasn't faded and it's quite nice but i couldn't satisfy my boredom with dying again like i usually can. so i pinned it up using (oddly) exactly 69 bobby pins. (which i didn't notice until  i took them out. it looked all prettyful up and i was gonna leave it but then i thought if i slept on it and it looked like crap i'd be screwed because i have a zero period and thus either no sleep or no time to get ready. but it was pretty and it showed my color so i thought i'd post.
during, upclose

further away  

and afterwards upclose:

2  corset in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sugarhigh on: August 09, 2006 12:25:53 AM
the following is my mother. she is absolutely wonderful and made me this fabulous (time-consuming) corset to wear to homecoming last year!:

I finally get to show Craftster one of my projects!!  I just couldn't get my pix on, so my daughter, who doesn't want to show her face, put them up for me!
This was modified significantly from the pattern, so I began with a muslin mockup. 
It was designed to follow the school dress code, merely a theoretical requirement for the homecoming dance which no one else bothered about, certainly not the school admin!
 It is made of heavy black satin, and she wore it with a skirt I made from a vintage taffeta dress.
It offers more coverage at the top than the pattern, and it is as long as possible, while still allowing my daughter to sit.  The points at the front and back were added, and the straps are wide enough to cover her bra and are attached between the outer fabric and the lining with elastic so they won't fall down - sort of springloaded.   I think the pattern offered lacing at the front or the back, but we had to go for the full punk look -  large silver eyelets and laces front and back.
I also made my daughter a reversible purple and turquoise cotton corset at the same time.
Please tell me what you think...Carolinelb

3  How to make a cassette tape wallet! yay!!! (tut+pic chubby) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sugarhigh on: August 08, 2006 11:48:01 PM
so i saw a cassette tape made into a wallet here a while ago and i knew i had to do one for myself.  i used a clear tape, but it took some time for me to find one that would work, because as far as i can tell they have to have screws in them. otherwise deconstruction becomes extremely difficult.  so you need a smallish screwdriver, a tape with screws, some tape, a rubber band, and smallish wire cutters.

completed product:

tutorial! Grin  confusing Huh maybe but i hope it helps if you want to make one

first you take out the screws, then you open up the tape and take out all the guts. 

then you need the wire cutters, to sort of bend off all the little plastic bits that would be in the way of storing money in your wallet.

like so.

after that, close up the tape and look at the top of it, and sort of eyeball out the center. then you're going to bend out a little rectangular hole on one of the two halves of tape

sorry for the rubberband being there, we haven't quite gotten to that yet (it's kind of a detailed tut, i know. sorry!)

then tape the two halves together on either side of the hole for a hinge (i used two pieces of clear tape, they're pretty invisible, but you can make a prettier hinge if you want)

open it up and stick your rubber band through that little rectangular hole you made so it's about halfway through

put your money into the inside half of the rubber band, close up the two halves, and pull the outside half of the rubber band over the rest of the tape. if that's confusing, don't think too much about it. pictures:

and there you have your finished wallet. (the stuff inside will need some rearranging probably, just to get it to fit right.

4  rainbows! in Shoes: Completed Projects by sugarhigh on: August 08, 2006 11:20:21 PM
 so i've been lurking on craftster for at least a year and i painted these shoes quite a while ago. i got them at walmart i believe, for cheapcheapcheap, and i needed to make them better. i used artist acrylics, the kind that are more like oil paints, but less crumbly and faster-drying.  (not bottled, tubed) yeah i know i'm bad at descriptions.

also, i have wide feet and high arches so instead of using the velcro for closing the strap i had to add in a safety pin to close it. it's very sloppy and i really should just put some black elastic inside. lazy me.

(please excuse the dirty insides)




i love em. Grin
