1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Spiffing up $8 salvage roller skates on: June 07, 2007 05:38:48 PM
I got these AWESOME roller skates from a kickass junk shop that I will now be frequenting but, the stops are all worn down. I wanna use 'em and spiffy 'em up. So 1) What kind of paint can I use to paint them glittery (glitter spray paint?) and 2) can I relace the stops with new ones? They are kinda old (I'm not sure how old, early 70's to mid 90's?) If anyone knows anything about rollerskates please tell me. I'm gonna get super good and join the ROLLER DERBY! Please help!
2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Has anyone seen Princess Mononoke? on: June 06, 2007 09:28:30 PM
If you have seen Princess Mononoke then you may remember the crystal dagger necklace that Ashitaka's (I'm not sure if that spelling is right) little sister gives him after he leaves the village at the beginning of the movie and then gives to San (wolf girl) towards the end. I REALLY want that necklace but I can't even find a picture of it, much less a place to buy one. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, could you think of a way to make it (a pretty one not just make it out of model magic or somthing). Thanks in advance!
3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Randolph McFluffsen on: June 03, 2007 03:42:35 PM
So The boy is doing band pratice all day, again (arg!) and I was inspired yesterday at the Indie Craft Experience, so I made this...

Randolph McFluffesen is a novelist and indian food and movie enthusaist. He writes crime dramas under the pseudonym "Jack Nantucket" and spends alot of time in bars. His favorite band is Journey but he normally lies and says somthing more artsy like the Decembrists or The Talking Heads when questioned.

He's made out of the collar of a horrid old sweater which sat in the back of my car for almost a year (that sweater had some stories. We called it the hooker sweater, pronounced HOOK-UH SWEAT-UH, it went to Rocky Horror and even helped us to clean indan food out of a hat, but I digress...) The lining of his ears is made from some super-awesome fabric I found at the city-wide clothing swap (a truly magical experience, well worth the 2 1/2 hours drive) and his eyes are vinyl.

I made this bad boy a little while ago out of felt. It was actually really simple and I'm really happy with the results. This is what it looks like on (please excuse my henna) and this is the button I really like it. Please tell me what you think!
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Wee Cakey on: June 03, 2007 12:55:13 PM
I made a bunch of these little guys a few months back but I gave all of them away save for this one. His name is Ralph. He's chocolate cake. I took his picture next to a penny for size refrence. He love to watch romantic comedies and take long walks on the beach. Sure he may be a bit romantic, but itsn't that what every girl or boy looks for in a tiny slice of cake with a face?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I de-beaded a sweater... on: June 03, 2007 11:15:09 AM
I took the beading off of a sweater and now the beads have left an indentation in the fabric. Is there something I can do to get that indentation out or will it just go away on its own?
7  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / machine sewing vinyl on: June 03, 2007 10:47:35 AM
So I have all of this fantastic vinyl, right? When it's turned so that the wrong sides are out, it goes right on through the machine. But, if the right sides are out the vinyl's texture seems to catch and I have to almost jerk it to get it through. Is there anything that I can do so it will go through like normal fabric?
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Lou, the knitting dino on: May 31, 2007 12:10:31 AM
I found this lonely little dino a while back. He had no job and so I told him I would take him in. After a few weeks of him doing nothing but watching the History Channel and eating all of my chips, I decided Lou needed a hobby. I knit this on toothpicks with beads glued to the end. Lemme tell you, toothpicks were not created with knitting in mind. I know this is not the most amazing or impressive thing, but I hope that it makes somone smile!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / rockabilly dress pattern recomendations? on: May 29, 2007 03:18:58 PM
Hey guys, I've only made a dress one other time and it was a few years back but now I'd really like to do a cute little pinup style or 50's style rockabilly halter or waitress-style dress but I can't find a pattern. Does anyone know of any that are fairly simple and have that look to them?I'm looking for something similar to the design of e.c. star or another rockabilly designer.
