1  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Tie Dye doesn't have to be tacky... on: October 16, 2005 08:46:27 AM
I thought I would share my tie-dying experience. I think it turned out really neat.
I dipped the shirt in parts at a time so the top of the shoulders is blue, the middle is green and the bottom corner is yellow underneath red. The trick is to tie your elastics really tight so the areas underneath are really white. The white circles remind me of stars!

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Fireworks Scarf on: November 09, 2004 05:08:37 PM
I'm going to make the Coney Island Fireworks scarf but I'm wondering if anyone has knit it without the extra cotton? I bought the eyelash yarn (FUR FX from Estelle Designs) before I got the book and I'm not sure if I need it. The sample at the store was knit without the cotton but I'm not an experienced knitter so maybe the cotton makes it easier? If I do need it, are there any recommendations for the yarn?
Thanks guys!
3  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Campus Crafting on: September 30, 2004 02:21:06 PM
I'm a member of a social justice group on campus and we are thinking of starting up a crafty kind of group. I was thinking that we could have a space for students or others who want to do some crafts and have supplies ex. sewing machine, knitting needles (what else?). Besides offering classes, we could have groups that get to together to make things for good causes (cloth pads are big, scarves for kids etc) and it would be a place to meet with other people and discuss issues. It might fit into an anti-sweatshop groove by encouraging alternative clothing. Has anyone ever been to such a thing? Any ideas? Start up $$ would also be an issue. Fundraising ideas?
Thanks guys!
4  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Discussion and Questions / Can you dye lace? on: July 12, 2004 09:26:49 PM
Can you use RIT to dye lace? Something tells me you can't! lol If not, is there somewhere I can get a little bit of lace that is already coloured? Thanks!
5  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Boring Photos on: July 12, 2004 09:10:32 PM
I have about 50 4X6 photos of the "Quebec landscape" (only one landscape I guess cause most of them look the same) that I'd like to get rid of somehow. I think they're kind of boring because there are no people in them. Would anyone else like them? Can anybody think of something I can do with them??

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Quickie Dress on: July 11, 2004 07:49:43 PM
I made this dress last night for a kareoke party! out of two shirts my dad didn't want anymore. Basically I made a tube out of the green one and then cut two triangles out of the white one. I made a dart in them and sewed them onto the green seam allowance.

What do you think?
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Puffy, Quilted Look w/Piping on: July 03, 2004 06:29:13 PM
I would like to make a little handbag out of some cute material from the Kid's Corner at the fabric store, perhaps the kind of cotton that has the little raised squares you usually see with gingham.
I'd like to make the bag look puffy and maybe sew some wavy lines through it to make it look quilted, except wavy. I'd also like to line the hems with that elastic pipe stuff you see on sports jackets but it would have to be hand sewed most likely right? I'm sure no one has any idea what I'm talking about but any help would be appreciated! I think I'll just wing it and hope it turns out and in the mean time accept any advice. Thanks!
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Under The Umbrella Tree on: July 03, 2004 05:58:41 PM
This was a loooong time ago but I used to love Under The Umbrella Tree, a show that was on here in Canada with these three puppets. I remember there was a picture of the tree at the beginning of the show with the title and I'm trying to find that picture for various crafty projects. Does anyone know where to find it? Thanks a million!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Makin' Salsa on: July 03, 2004 05:51:26 PM
Does anyone have a recipe for salsa? We've made it before but it has lacked the spice. Too I really like salsa that has a little bit of sweet in it too. Thanks everyone!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Wildlife T-Shirt on: July 03, 2004 08:54:06 AM
This is my first reconstructed shirt made into an XS from an XL:
I thought it might be interesting because I chopped the original sleeves right off. Here you can see that I used the neck of the original shirt as the new neck AND sleeves:
To hem the sleeves and the bottom I used a slip stich which is very handy for invisible hems. I can post a tutorial on how to do a slip stitch if anyone is interested.
