1  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / More X-mas cards 2008 on: November 29, 2008 08:41:40 PM
Just thought I would share my Christmas cards, the first craft I've felt was good enough to actually share in awhile! Not that they're anything too special... I could still use some craft schoolin'.
For the front of the cards I downloaded a photo of a burning christmas tree from the deviantart.com stock photo section. I wanted to do something a bit more creative in it with photoshop, but I ended up thinking the image looked best when I simply inverted the colors. I made a bunch of color copies, glued them to cardstock and then stamped some snowflakes and the bird on, followed by glitter glue highlights.

Sorry it's so blurry... couldn't use the flash without too much reflection, and I have some shaky hands.

The inside is the same bird stamp repeated on blue paper and a "seasons greetings" stamp on tracing paper, sewn in with random machine stitching.

And then I made some envelopes. Wheeeee! Roll Eyes

Too bad the envelope picture came out the best... oh well, hope these help to inspire a bit!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / The "le sac" dress on: September 30, 2008 10:22:45 PM
Does anyone know how to make, or have any ideas on how to make, the Le Sac dress from American Apparel? http://store.americanapparel.net/rsa0300.html
Just looking at it, it seems like a really simple and potentially much cheaper idea that one could make themselves. Basically just a shapeless bag with a very long strap, right? But I am uncertain how many entry and exit point there are for the strap, and how much fabric to use. If I used too little, it would probably lose some of it's versatility. Use too much and I'll get lost inside of the thing!
Patterns would be helpful, but aren't needed. Thanks Grin
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Best paint for wood furniture on: May 14, 2008 08:30:54 AM
This may seem like kind of stupid question, but I'm a newbie to this sort of craft. I picked up a desk for $25 that has tons of little drawers, so I wanted to paint so that it looks like one of those Chinese medicine cabinents. Don't know if you've ever seen something like that- but I saw one once in an antique store that was painted red, black and gold. So, my question is: what's the best type of paint to use for a project like that? Should I buy, say, a craft paint or a wood paint? Look at the art store or home depot?
4  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / looking for a knitted scoodie pattern on: January 10, 2008 12:05:57 PM
Have you seen these? It's a scarf with a hood. I've seen lots of patterns and ideas about how to reconstruct these out of old clothing, but I'd like to knit one. I know I could just knit a scarf and a hood and then sew them together, but I'd like to find a pattern where it is all one piece and knitted as one piece. Anyone seen something like this?
