21  homemade shower cap. tutorial. in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: May 31, 2005 09:31:00 AM
i suppose this is the best category in which to post this.
as i prepared for my shower today i realized that my hair had combed out this morning into perfect straight bangs.  this almost never happens, so i was determined to keep my style going for the day.  however, i have no shower cap, as i have very short hair and haven't had use for one until today.  now, i'm not the kind of girl who skips a shower unless there isn't one around, so i made one out of a gallon sized ziploc bag and some yarn.

it's very silly-looking, but functional.
all that is required is to slit one side of a gallong plastic bag, put it on your head, and pinch either side together to fit your head.  take it off, tie yarn around the "pigtails" and put it back on your head and hop into the shower.

25  pirates of the carribean reconstruct with lace and shimmer in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by girlypirate on: April 29, 2005 05:50:12 AM
my stepmother bought me a huge pirates shirt at the disney store last christmas that i just loved but didn't have the nerve to cut up until the other day.

i resized, cross strapped with grommets, added lace, and added a panel of metallic mesh to the back.

better view of the red metallic fabric.

i am now the girliest girlypirate of them _all_.

he was standing:

but he fainted:

he is a collection of felt, polyfil, red pins, seed beads, a rhinestone, 4 buttons and some white thread.

27  one scarf, two scarf, red scarf blue scarf. + hats in Knitting: Completed Projects by girlypirate on: December 09, 2004 06:02:31 AM
ah, knitting in cold weather.  these are the three scarves i've made in the past month, two knit, one crocheted. the second picture shows the detail of the mirrors that i encased in crochet and sewn randomly along the scarf.

this is the hat i made for my boo for his birthday.  it's a huge hat because he likes them that way. i started off with a cable swatch, picked stitches up along the edge and knit upward.

and these are hats i made for both of my coworkers that got knocked up last summer.  ha.  babies.

28  recycled crayon candles in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by girlypirate on: October 11, 2004 10:25:53 AM
i work at a restaurant and it was killing me that we were throwing away so many perfectly good crayons.  so i decided to recycle them and make me a little money too.
a big mess of crayons
soda cans
candle wicking
glue gun
candle molds (i used dixie cups and pringle packs.  be creative.)
paraffin or emergency candles.
razor blade
modeling clay
oven mitts

peel the crayons by running a blade down the side and sliding the wrapper off.  this is much faster than trying to peel with your fingers.  believe me.

bust the crayons into several pieces.  cut the tops off of the soda cans.  sort these pieces into color groupings in the cans.

add two emergency candles with the wicks removed or two blocks of paraffin to each can.

prepare your candle molds with wicks.  if you are using improvised molds, hot glue the wick to the inside bottom of the mold.  punch a small hole in the bottom of a plastic mold and cover it with modeling clay.

fill the molds with multi-colored crayon chunks.

fill the saucepan halfway with water and bring it to a simmer.  set the cans into the water gently and allow to melt, stirring gently occasionally.

when the wax has melted, pour over the crayon chunks and allow to cool.

peel away the dixie cup, or remove the modeling clay from the plastic mold and blow into the puncture.  this should cause the mold to release easily.

reinforce the wick on the bottom with more hot glue.

29  make a folder from a record sleeve, tutorial. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by girlypirate on: September 03, 2004 08:25:45 AM
something to do with all of those sleeves leftover from making record bowls.  eh?
glue gun
sexy/cool/rockin record sleeve
legal pad
razor/craft knife

step 1: crack open the sleeve and lay the legal pad down next to the fold in the center.  add about a 1/4" of ease and mark top and bottom.  cut excess sleeve away.  repeat for the other flap.  or do them both at once.  i don't care.
step 2:  generously hot glue the legal pad down to the inside of the right flap.

step 3: cut a piece of sleeve to cover the binding of the legal pad from the excess.  hot glue in place.

step 4: take another piece of scrap and cut to the width of the left flap of the folder.  put a bead of glue on three edges of this piece and glue to the inside of the left flap for a folder pocket.

step 5(optional): the record sleeves are open on both edges.  these make great extra pockets for loose papers, or you may hot glue them shut.  i did one of each.
