1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / Craftster Craft Challenge Theme Ideas, Etc. / Craft your dreams! on: August 06, 2009 06:19:37 AM
There's something distinctly Sigmund Freud about dreams. Some people dream about normal situations, and some people dream about different planets. I propose a Craftster Craft challenge all about the night world. Embroider a dream sequence onto a pillow, paint your dream guy/girl on the wall, write a children's book about your most interesting dream, make a dream dictionary, sew a piece of clothing you wore in a dream, crochet or knit a creature only found in dreams! The options are endless, and it might be fun exploring what everyone else dreams up.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / a sweatband that works? on: July 16, 2008 12:10:46 PM
Hey there!

Both my boyfriend and I are avid paintballers, but he's constantly running into the problem of "I need to take a break because I only sweat from the head and it's stinging my eyes for the tenth time today."

I'm pretty skeptical about buying headbands for 20 bucks because you can't really return them all sweaty. (plus a crafty persons always looking for other ways to make it better for cheaper.) I was wondering if any of you craftsters know of any type of cloth that can absorb more sweat than terry cloth. I was thinking about that new commercial for shamwow, but apparently it only works when wet and that could be even more uncomfortable than him just wearing a winter hat. is there a type of cloth like this that actually works?
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / First duvet quilt on: November 04, 2007 11:39:42 AM
I have to hand it to you quilters. I had such a hard time with this. Quilting is HARD WORK! Sorry for the crappy photobooth pictures. My expensive camera has gone on the fritz and i'm still trying to find out why it's not saving the pictures it takes. Oh. and sorry for the non-ironing. Ive been sleeping on it for a few weeks now and not bothered to take pictures when i first made it.

Anyway. I needed a duvet for my comforter that i've had FOREVER. It was originally white, but you know how crafty people can get crafty substances all over things sometimes! (Paint and coffee stains mostly) But, either the ones i likes where about how much i paid for the original feather comforter, or they were ugly. So i went to walmart, bought some cute and bright colored fabrics (I was hoping they still had pokemon, but they didn't) and this is what i got.

Me all snuggly in it.

The pattern. I altered it from a baby blanket project that i had done in Sewing class last year.

Just to show you the size of the massive thing

The back of it is a curtain (not really, its more of like a giant sarong-like sheet.) from Target. I thought it matched well.
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Ugly salvage dress to awesome costume! on: August 17, 2007 02:46:42 PM
Hey there everyone! I have a BIG problem.

My mom bought me some hideous baby pink dress about two years ago, I thought about throwing it out (since I looked like glinda the good witch with a big butt bow on the back!) but the crafter in me refused to let me get rid of the thing.

Now I'm a bit glad. The thing is, I want to reconstruct it into a smokin' hot fairy costume.

But 1) I have NO idea what fabric it is. There's no tag. I'm thinking it was made by some mad bridal gown shop in the 80's, because some of the seams are unfinished. I really want to dye it green,but I don't know about it being an unknown fabric. Is there really any way to tell? (It's kindof a prom gown heavy material that's satin-y)

2)Will the bright green even cover the pink well if it does dye?

please help me!
