It makes me sad when Craftster is slow.  Cry  It went weird on me too.

12  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by rainbowmeow on: July 06, 2008 03:52:12 PM
I have a couple of sewing machines.  The first is a Singer Stylist 534, which was a graduation present to my mom in 1976.  I still have the instruction book and all of the attachments it came with.  It's the machine I usually use for everyday stuff.  The second is a Wards UHT J1276.  I think I got it at a Goodwill a few years ago for about $20.  I used it for a while, but I don't really know anything about it, or how old it is.  I dragged it out today so I could do some googling on it.  It's extremely heavy and it's much quicker than my Singer.  I also have a Brother lying around, but I haven't really played with it because it's pretty banged up.

13  Mccall's 4668 in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rainbowmeow on: March 26, 2008 09:27:28 PM
So I had a long day of work Tuesday (15 hours!) and I kept dreaming of making a new purse.  I just barely made it to Field's in time.  There were some awesome remnants, and I managed to get 3 different ones, a yard of fabric, a package of interfacing, and two big spools of thread for only $10!  Yay!

Anyway, I used Mccall's 4668, View B.  I've made View F, and that should have tipped me off when that turned out weird, that View B would too.  It just didn't make sense how the exterior part of the purse had 3 pieces per side, and the lining only had one.  The outside was huge, and the lining was tiny!  I managed to fix it, though.  The changes I made to this pattern were: lengthening the straps by 4 inches, adding an interior pocket, and reducing the outside of the bag.  The basic shape of the bag is a pleated center, with a panel above it, and side panels added.

Outside (Some kind of green, slightly stretchy stuff, which was interfaced):

Inside (You can see my Pandapple wallet, which I love!):

I also added a button to the outside edge to cover up the fact that my needle randomly broken and snarled up the thread.  I kind of fixed it, but there are needle holes in the fabric!

14  Pleated Purse Made From Floral Pillowcase in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by rainbowmeow on: March 24, 2008 12:04:45 PM
I picked up two pillowcases from the dollar store and used some mauve colored stuff (who knows what it is, it's from Valueland) and made a purse out of it.  It did not go how I planned, and I now hope the bag has some kind of "accident".   Wink But anyway, it was more of a trial run for when I get better fabric.  To anyone that is planning to pleat a bag... be careful how heavy of an interfacing you use!

15  Slouchy/Pleated Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rainbowmeow on: March 24, 2008 09:07:49 AM
I made this out of some zebra-y fabric in the clearance bin, and some remnants.  I drew up my own pattern, although it was similar to someone else's on here, which I cannot seem to find.  Basically, you pin a larger piece of fabric to a smaller piece of interfacing, which makes the outside look gathered.  I love how it turned out, it's about 13" by 11", which is a perfect size.  I just wish I had remembered to interface the straps.  Roll Eyes


Inside Zippered Pocket ( my wallet is lying underneath):

16  Removing A Button On Jeans in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by rainbowmeow on: March 19, 2008 01:10:55 PM
I have a pair of jeans that have back pockets that close with a metal button thing, but they won't come off.  I managed to loosen one of them, and the front part feels like it's "unscrewing", but the back doesn't move.  I don't think it's really doing anything though.  Does any one know how these buttons work or how to remove them?  I thought about cutting them out, but then I would have to cover the hole.  Thanks!

17  Wooden Coaster Set in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by rainbowmeow on: December 23, 2007 07:27:19 PM
I made these for my boyfriend's parent.  I bought some sheets of thin wood, and a pre-made box and painted them.  The wood was horrible and split a lot, but I sanded the best I could, and hopefully they won't notice that all the coasters aren't exactly the same size.  I still have to clear-coat the set, but I figured I would post now, in case they were too shiny to photograph.

In progress:

Done... mostly:

The coasters have a base made out of little wooden bead things that I glued on with tacky glue.

My tiny little tree.  It lives on a chair.  There are pink and clear lights on it and of course, mini flamingos!

19  Yoga Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by rainbowmeow on: December 17, 2007 12:18:07 PM
I made this for my mom.  She doesn't take her mat anywhere, but the cat is always chewing on it, so I made a type of roll bag, just to keep it enclosed.


Inside (the blue thing is the mat):

One of the three buttons I used:

20  Re: Show off your hair! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by rainbowmeow on: May 27, 2005 10:38:34 AM
I posted my hair a few pages back, and got a haircut, and dyed it.  And now I've got dreads put in.  I made near 40 double ended ones, but only 30 went in, as my head is very small.  They're kinda too long for me, but I'll leave them in for a while until I make some shorter ones.  I do really like them though.  I left my bangs out, and its tied up in the back cuz I can't deal with the ends hitting me when I move.
