i really like that, it's hott, but it doesn't show too much skin! and it looks like it could be done pretty quick too! *adds to mental to do list*

ooh i love the NIN and the tye dye one as well... i have the same question as femme fatale, did you do it yourself? because i have a tye-dye kit i haven't tried out yet, and i would be estatic if they turned out as well as that!

aww thank you so much, abandoned! i actually save my scraps for fabric flowers, but maybe i'll try a scrunchie this time, just fold it in half and put elastic in it, i guess?
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a skirt for me, a skirt for my bunny on: April 18, 2005 11:44:39 PM
inspired by all you crafty girls i made a circle skirt and a pillow case top today. my bunny was very interested in the process, so i made her a matching skirt too! it was only on for about 30 seconds before she hopped out of it and decided to make it lunch instead. sorry about the poor quality, it's hard to take a picture of a skirt in the mirror when you don't have a bathroom mirror. i'm perched on the sink haha. anyways, lemme know what you think!


showing off our matching skirts, too funny haha.


see the snake pin.. i got tired of sewing. no hem either... but thats for tomorrow i guess.


1 second before she jumped out and made it into salad.


and the pillowcase top... someone just posted one yesterday, i loved the way it looked so much i had to do one too!

thanks for looking!
15  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: First attempt at Decoupage, and I'm satisfied. Oh yeah, and they're shoes on: April 10, 2005 10:50:18 PM
i think she probably just cut images out of magazines, etc and used mod-podge or some other sealant to stick them onto the shoes.

rockgirl918: just leave it alone, don't touch it unless you've washed your hands, wash the area everyday with either pure unscented glycerin soap like pears, or a antiseptic cleansing gel like spectro gel. i find witch hazel dabbed on with a q tip helps with the itching and burning from the infection. and like i said before, don't touch it. ever. i learned that the hard way with a cartilidge piercing. and be careful when applying hair products, if hair spray gets in there, ouch.




my sister just went through this with my mom, she wanted to get her ear pierced for her birthday, and so i told her if she came and visited me in my town, i'd take her to the piercing shop and they'd do it with the needle for $20. my mom freaked out and said that was too much, so i told her that i'd buy a needle for $5, and sterilize my old hoops in alcohol, and i still had the glycerin soap, and ear solution from my industrial last year. mom insisted on doing it at a "reputable establishment" where the employees were "properly trained to pierce" unlike me. i wish i'd known about this thread, because i could have shown her how awful claires is. even a hair salon would be better than there. my sister's ears are fine so far, though, she said it hurt like a bitch when she got them pierced, though.
as for myself, i'd go to a piercing shop as well to get it done. when i got my industrial done, i travelled from my hometown at the time to where i live now, there's a place called Primal Instincts and they do amazing work. they charge "$40/hole" so the industrial was pretty expensive, but it's worth it... i was originally going to get a rook piercing, but he took a look at my ear and told me that if i had it done i would have a huge hole in my ear as a result - something a tattoo shop in my hometown hadn't told me when i went in to have them take a look at it. the guy at Primal was so gentle with the needle, and carefully measured my ear and got the right size barbell etc etc. the piercing hurt, because it was cartiledge, but even so it hurt less than when i got my second hole done with the gun. he could even tell i hadn't eaten breakkie that morning because my blood was thin. but not all pro piercers are good, i had my belly button done at the same tattoo shop in my hometown, and she did it crooked, i had to take it out and let it heal over. when i showed my guy at primal the scar from it he told me about all of the rumours he had heard about that place... there was an especially scary story about a botched nipple piercing.
bottom line : know who's doing your work. if you have friends with piercings ask them who they recommend. if you're in the states you can probably google for piercing shops in your area.

i really like the pink one, i would love to see a tute, or even just a drawing of the shapes you used for the pattern. i neeeeeeed the pink one, but a little bigger, and shorter, is my take on it, i think. perhaps i'll try and figure it out on paper tonight... hrrrm Huh
