1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Green Carry All Bag from Amy Butler Pattern on: March 25, 2008 07:13:37 PM
I was hoping that this would be my new bag to carry everything. However, not only is it a little too big for me to carry, but the handles aren't long enough for me. It did turn out cute though!  Grin

If it weren't dark outside I'd have taken the pictures out there.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Hat trick...6 Triangles and making a good point? on: March 19, 2008 08:50:30 PM
HA! If that title wasn't confusing enough, now I'm going to try to explain what I mean. lol I made a couple of these hats...


And they turned out ok. But I was wondering if there was some special trick for getting them to line up to a perfect star or point at the top. I guess like making a fabric ball? I've managed to fudge my way through it, but it just doesn't seem right, and I was wondering if there was some trick, like folding the seams flat first, or stopping the seam so far from the top of each triangle. Geez I hope this is making sense. Thanks guys!  Embarrassed
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Looking for a pattern...Do you have it?? on: March 19, 2008 07:15:48 PM
I've been really wanting to make this cabbie style hat, from this pattern (view A)...

McCall's 4607

I need to make one for my tattoo artist, it's the only type of hat he wears and I think it would make a killer "tip" one of these days. Wink Or just a fun gift cause he's super cool.

The trouble is, that link is the only place I can find the pattern on the net, including Ebay and Yahoo and Craigslist, cause of course it's out of print! And I'd really prefer not to pay $15 for it, cause I'm cheap. lol I was hoping that if you have the pattern and don't want it any more, maybe we could make a trade? I've got LOTS of patterns, and fabric, and all kinds of other good stuff.

I've been instructed to have you PM me if you want to trade. Or if you could point me in the direction of someone who might want to get rid of theirs, that would be awesome too. I really appreciate it guys!! Smiley Thank you for reading my plea.  Roll Eyes
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Ham? For pressing round seams... on: March 12, 2008 01:22:41 AM
I just made a really neat hat, from this tutorial...


As you can see it calls for a "ham" which is optional. Well, after getting this hat assembled I noticed it would come in really handy to get my seams flat. I've been looking online for one, but still can't find it. Anyone know where I can get one? I suppose I could make one, but if there was one that was made out of wood or something I think it might hold up better.

BTW here's my hat, seams not pressed and no button at the top, so I guess it's not totally finished. Wink

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Getting Fabric Printed on: January 13, 2008 10:08:35 AM
I need to have some fabric printed up. I want fabric with guns on it, or weapons like grenades and knives and such, but can't find it on the internet. Anyone know of a good place to get fabric printed? Or maybe a place I can get fabric with guns or weapons on it?
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Computer Monitor to Fish Tank?? HELP!! on: December 15, 2007 09:16:16 AM
We had a tube computer monitor that got fried during a power surge, so my husband thought he'd take it apart. He was thinking he could make it into a fish tank (ya know like those awesome tv tanks), but he's stuck. We got all the parts away from the tube, but now we're at a loss on how to get into the tube to turn it into a tank without breaking it. There's a warning label on the side that says...

"Warning this picture tube employs integral implosion protection; replace with a tube of the same type and number for continued safety."

So we're a little worried to cut into it. Has anyone out there had issues like this?? Anyone make a computer monitor into a fish tank before? Any help is appreciated. Thanks guys!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / What is your favorite Stabilizer? on: November 19, 2007 08:27:48 AM
Having made several bags, and used just about every form of stabilizer out there I'm curious.....What is your favorite stabilizer to use for which bags?

I personally am a fan of the thickest Pellon I can find at the craft store; even if I have to sew it in.  Grin
8  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 21 ENTRIES / Operation Handbag on: October 01, 2007 09:37:05 AM
One of my favorite games as a kid...Operation! Not to mention funky pieces and way too much fun to work with!

The purse is folded out of the lid, and covered with a clear contact paper to protect it from the elements. I lined it with an old skirt. And the handles are an embroidery hoop broken in half and covered with the word Operation which I patiently peeled from the sides of the lid. They're held on with pieces of wire from the tweezers; and you can see them hanging from the handle sortof like a little purse charm!

Enjoy guys! This was so much fun to make!


9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hello Kitty Hat! on: July 20, 2007 06:22:37 PM
Inspired by noxenlux and her FABULOUS hats, I went out searching for a book on how to make them. I found one called Saturday Night Hat. And check out what I made!!


It has a comb on the underneath for holding it in the hair. This was fun to make!! Now I've got to make some more!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / WOOT! First hat! on: February 24, 2007 08:44:16 PM
Gotta give it up to Nifty Knitter! I've never liked knitting because it took me too long, but I was able to turn out this fun (uber warm) hat in 2 hours on my circle loom! It's a gorgeous garnet wool acrylic blend. I'm gonna add a flower or something to the side tomorrow.
