1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Elvis is hard to work with. Needing inspiration! on: November 26, 2008 01:01:34 AM
My aunt got me a yard of this friggen sweet Elvis fabric about a year ago or something, and now that i've found it after it disappeared for what seemed like forever, i have NO idea what to do with it. I've considered making a bag, but i make too many of those, and i figure any sort of clothing is probably out of the question.

What i'm asking for is as many ideas you can possibly throw at me. Something creative maybe, or just anything totally random. I'm down for anything.

Thanks in advance Smiley)

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The result of my boredom... incredibly easy headband tutorial! [w/ pics] on: November 19, 2006 07:25:32 PM
So i got bored and wanted some headbands, but of course i'm not one who would pay for something i can make myself. So, i found my manilla newsprint stuff, and i made a basic shape pattern, and ended up with 4 headbands and cut out fabric for more!

Here are two i've made already [i'm wearing one, and i gave the other one to my cousin.]

Soooo. Here's an extremely detailed tutorial!

1. Cut out two peices of fabric using this shape. I know, i didn't do the greatest job, but i'm one of those people who can use sloppily-cut fabric and still know what she's doing.

2. Put the two peices together, right sides together, and pin [if you want.]

3. Sew along the two long sides [NOT the ends] with about a... 1/2 in. seam allowance.

4. Turn the whole thing inside out.

5. Tuck the ends inside like 1/2 or 3/4 in., and tuck the end of a 6in. piece of elastic into the ends of the headband, pin [if you want], and sew across a couple times [to keep a strong hold on the elastic.]

6. Do the same to the other side. Make sure you don't twist the elastic and/or main piece...

TA DA! Now you have a really easy-to-make headband.

Buuut... i don't have access to an iron at the moment, so i just wear them on my head once i finish one so it flattens out. Haha.

3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Sewing organizer box thing on: September 01, 2006 07:43:27 PM
I didn't know exactly where i would put this... and it's pretty pointless to post this, but i was excited about it.

I was looking for a small box to make a sewing accessory organizer thing when i stumbled apon an amazon box in my closet.
I then cut off 2 of the side thingies and made little dividers, then later that night i lined it with paper mache. i didn't finish the biggest compartment, though.. and i need to paint it in neon colors.

here it issssss.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Shrinky Dink jewelry!! on: August 28, 2006 09:45:19 PM
I got some shrinky dinks from Joann's for 3 bucks... on sale..

Me and my cousin got to work and started making things for necklaces and stuff. Like earrings and little charms.

Next time, she's buying the shrinky dinks. Since she used like half of mine.

Here are some of the necklaces:

Clandestine bat

MCR w/gun (got very warped and stuck folded while in the oven, so i fixed it with a fork.)

Skull and crossbones necklace for my mom

and here are the earrings i made:

lightning bolt and a 324384023984 pointed star thing, whatever you want to call it


and i made these with weird beads

and here are some other things i made for necklaces, just haven't attached string yet:

Hello Kitty (first shrinky dink thing i made, and i didn't know the black would smudge. i also forgot to put a hole in it.)

a heart

a daisy thing

and a Totoro!

I'll be posting more soon, once i get more sshrinky dinks.

Yayayyyyayayayayy! I got the idea from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16097.0.
I made my own pattern though. I'm thinking about making another one and posting a tutorial for it.

This is the fronttt:

This is the whole thing unfoldeddd:

And there's three pockets in it, as well as little random ones for cards and stuff. Notice my student id card is turned around... i look like a retard in it.

and i put a little thing for a keyring to hold my key and fred meyer rewards card thing... and the big plain pocket is for my school planner, once they give it to me..

i forgot to take a picture of the middle one... but there's a big pocket there too.
