those look soooo great i NEED to know how you've done that, because there are a pair of shoes in the thrift store down my street with an awsome shape, but they're done in ugly grey leather. i'm already picturing the fabric i would use with them. from looking at them, it looks like you cut the fabric in a rough pattern of the shoes, and then glued it down on the inside of the shoe, is that right? oh, a tutorial for this would make my day.

i have some really nice corderoy that i want to make into a 6 or 7 panel skirt that falls 2" below the knee or so, and flares from the mid-thigh out. i am horribly new at all this, so this was my take on the pattern that i will need for the panels

all i'm wondering, is do i measure the length and then measure my hips, and the width that i want the skirt to be at the bottom, and use those to create the dimensions to create the panel? is it really that easy? or is there an important step that i have completly missed? any help on this would be really appreciated because i love this skirt, but i will not break down and buy a pattern, and i don't want to screw up and ruin my pretty corderoy!

i tried that, but i couldn't get the uh.. "boob triangles" to go right. i ended up getting frustrated and putting it back in the sewing box. but yours looks awesome

i just used a pajama pant pattern that i bought for really cheap, and i modify it to suit the pants i want to make that day. drawstring pants are the easiest and the comfiest

i agree with everyone about the pinstripe. i've been fantasizing about reconstructed bags, skirts, hats etc etc... i just need to go out thrifting and find some ugly mens pants to revamp!
37  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: cheap booth options on: September 09, 2004 04:34:06 PM
cheap as in things i may already have around the house. in canadian that tent would be about 120-130 if our walmart even carries it, and from what i've heard about the ez-ups it may not be the best investment. i'm trying to figure out a way to put up a tarp above my two tables, without it interfering in the way i'm diplaying my wares. any ideas, anyone?

i'm looking to sell jewellry at a craft fair/ farmers market in the spring, and i need a cheap, but decent looking way to set up a booth. i was thing of two rectangular tables in an L shape, and a tarp overhead, but i'm unsure about how to set up the tarp over the tables. my main problem is i don't have a big truck or anything to take the stuff there, it'll need to fit into a car somehow. has anyone ever tried a set up like this? any problems you can see, or suggestions to make it better?
39  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / Re: displaying jewellry at flea markets? on: September 08, 2004 11:11:53 PM
i make my own little cards with my label and holes for the jewelly, and for tricky items that won't peg through a card, i put a card inside a baggie with a hole in it. then i peg them on corkboard with tacks, and i work at a dollar store, so i've got a few display racks with pegs. i also use velvet covered foam for displaying larger items flat, and just safety pin them to the velvet.

i have the same problem. i also make body jewelry, mostly fimo plugs and stretchers, and other funky jewelry and accessories. i'm planning on browsing the local craft/farmers market held every saturday morning in the spring and summer and seeing what kind of booths are there. if i don't see anyone in the crowds who might be interested in that stuff (ie if it's all seniors because the kids are still sleeping at 8am on a saturday) i may try and organize my own through flyers and word of mouth at the university for an alternative craft fair, and then advertise that in likely places to catch the eyes of likely customers.
