1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Too-Blue Jeans on: December 16, 2004 02:42:32 PM
i have used an electric sander on my jeans that were on my legs to make them worn out... it works okay but you will be spending a lot of time with the sander on your leg... if you only want them faded, i say try something else... this definately weakens the jeans

i totally agree with this! if it could be linked up to the user names we sign in as, then i would think you could be at any computer and still you could access all favorites bc you are signed in, just a thought!

How secure are the covers? I would love to make a full-body cover for my beige but cozy armchair, but slipcovers always look like they would slip around with the least provocation.

they dont really slip (no pun intended) around too much.. when i made them i pinned the fabric together while it was on the chair, so its a really snug fit..
after seeing how easy that was i feel like itd be reeeeally easy to make a slip cover for a whole chair..
i just think the main thing to keep in mind is too pin it together while it is on the chair.. i feel like store bought slip covers do 'slip' around because they are not custom made for the chair!!

i found an old chair on the side of the road for my apartment..

however the arm rests were rather worn out..

so i made some little arm covers out of some cordouroy fabric..

here is an upclose detailed picture
it was pretty easy, i just pinned the fabric together how i wanted it, whille it was on the chair (good sides down) and then sewed and hemmed it up!

if you "glued" the glass pieces together with clear silicone would that work and not make visible marks through the glass?

im wondering cuz i found a huge door-sized piece of  glass on the side of the road and am thinking if i cut it in two and glue it together it could be a table top (it is kind of thin right now)

ooh. those are good ideas. shelves or coffee table, possibly with glass on top of them (or plexiglass anyway) to make them flat...

theyre outside so i dont know for sure the dimesions, but something close to 5ft long and 1.5-2ft long

thanks for the ideas!!!!!!!!

i wasn't totally sure where this should go.... buuuuuut

i have a pair of fairly large shutters from a house and i was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what to do with them besides a screen type thing where you would stand them up in a room (ive seen those type of things on trading spaces and the like)

thanks in advance Smiley

they also make things to boost your bed up 6 inches or so higher so you fit more under your bed... linens and things  has them and so does target
