    I did yesterday. I wanted to be into crafting and sewing and I was inspired by video-games. I want to make capes and jewelry just like in the MMORPG game I used to play in my younger years.

    I knit. Hats, scarves. Made some fingerless mittens. Still haven't made any socks though.

    I have a sewing machine but need someone to show me how to sew.

    I wish I could, but that would be one more thing I wouldn't have time to do.

    You know, I honestly wish I could! I mean you can buy clothes for cheap on discount, (because usually everything on discount is like a XL) and just alter the sucker!

    I do hand-sewing as part of my art-making process, but the only time I actually made clothes was for a design project in college, which turned out surprisingly well considering I hand made everything with zero knowledge of pattern making or construction.

    You do it all, don't you? icon_smile.gif

    I love everything about that outfit except the hat - reminds me of my grandma's toilet paper doilies. But perhaps that was intentional.

    You remind me of a friend of mine that used to glam dress in New York in the eighties. (For events I was his conservative escort - every diva needs one.) But he was so androgynous he'd pass for female without a drop of makeup. At 48 he still dresses like a cross between a nineteenth century dandy and the mad hatter because he can afford to - he married a doctor and opened an antiques store in Cape Cod so he could be himself and indulge in European buying sprees. In 15 more years he'll be Quentin Crisp. Fabulous.

    I can make small repairs, like rips or buttons, but that's the extent of my abilities.

    I once made dresses for my daughter's Barbie out of scrap material and an old pair of plaid boxers! icon_lol.gif

    She thought I was the greatest dad ever.

    The finished product had a more pleasing result, and that was a bad angle for the hat anyway.

    My mom taught me to sew when I was like 8, and I even made a little quilt. Shoulda been a huge sign then.

    Gorg!

    But best you keep sewing on the periphery - you know what happens to seamstresses. We don't want you dying from consumption!

    I'd really like to learn how to use the machine too, one of my hobbies are ripping old pockets from old jeans and I sew it onto another jeans with a different colour denim it looks so cool, it's just a pity I have no idea how to upload a picture of it

    lol, I really don't have an interest in making clothes, but I do love working with fabric as an art material

    Lots of talent on this thread. In need of better material, perhaps. (Though that could be said of me.)

    These art crafts look pretty good
