    Default What Do You Do For Craft Fun???

    I like to make obnoxiously gaudy flowers for my hair.

    I like to make tie necklaces (they're all the rage in my circle of friends!!!)

    I am planning a craft project to make warm fuzzy fur scarves with all the leftover fur and fabrics I have to take to Burning Man with me :-)

    HOW ABOUT YOOOOOUUUUU?????

    Haha. That's awesome! Please post what a custom modded Spider-Man My Little Pony looks like!

    I make dodgy web banners, posters and signatures for the hell of it. I used to make plastecine models as well for fun but I've run out of the stuff and IT'S EXPENSIVE.

    And I'm starting to buy pencils/ink/paper to start cartooning again

    i've been wanting to turn my plaid pants into zip-offs, but i've been too lazy to go to the craft store and steal a zipper and/or measure for what size I need.

    Im currently making a Combichrist gauntlet for a craft swap on another forum. The person's fav. band and jewelry is combichrist and gauntlets. So Im not done with it totally, but it's all handpainted on leather. I've still got to add side stitching and something else to it..dont know what yet.


    Then of course, I make goggles and hair. One of my favorite pieces we make is the Neko wig.

    I collect beer cans. The plan is to make ashtrays. I don't smoke, so I drink more beer. Kinda zen.

    i knit. obesssively. right now i'm making my husband a freddy krueger sweater (cause he asked me if i'd make him one!), but it's almost too hot to knit with wool. I also just finished knitting the cutest garter ever with ribbon lace-up sides. I also make some of my own clothes, seeing what i can do starting with a basic pattern and modding it, and i do stuff with our furniture (ie, sanding and painting with stuff like old school tat designs on my sewing station)

    I love to knit and hand felt- at the moment I am making a number of felted cloche hats and scarves. I like embellishing things also with wools, felted bits, beads ect.
    Also a little bit of chain making, I made a Halberd for a mate once, it turned out good but when you have made something like that it puts you off making anything in the same way for a while (time consuming!)

    And Currently making custom Ear stretchers with Femo and hard woods.

    Those Sock monsters are Super Cool!

    I make photo/word collages and decorate my "walls" (okay, really, poster-board sheets that I put on the walls... landlords might not like my collages so much). lol.

    I also make web-banners and dollz for fun.

    And I do a bit of other, real crafting, but only rarely, when the mood strikes me... beading, hemp necklaces, sewing, and the like.

    I'm curious...any of you folks sell your crafts as well? Or do you do it just for fun?

    I made a business out of it. It pays the bills, better than corporate jobs IMO.
    I get aroundabout 15-20 orders a week. Doesnt sound like much, but the pay is good at an average of $100 - $120 an order.

    I'm renovating an old wine cellar connected to my bedroom. Unfortunately, it is too late to garden out here this year. If I stay, I'm planning to reap reap reap!

    I am always troubled by questions like this, because from an early age I wanted to be able to create things, to make backpacks out of gunny sacks and dangerous weapons out of sewing machine needles. I have achieved only moderate success, though I think fucking with music and found instruments (pots, pans, 55-gallon oil drums) used to really satisfy a lot of my crafting urges. Nothing is quite as satisfying as recording a 20-minute percussion assault as rendered on an old 5-gallon Arrowhead bottle, six milk jugs and a sledgehammer.

    Nowadays, for craft fun, I mostly spank. I attempt to make pretty patterns and marvel at the rising redness. That, and photography which, while when digital is mostly viritual, also requires the building of sets and costumes, sometimes... that can be really fun.

    That, and web design stuff, but admittedly anything virtual seems to not quite fulfill the need for physical-world artistic expression, which I think is the whole point of the craft compulsion.

    Occasionally I haul out the scrapbook and try to create a masturpiece out of sketches and clippings.

    I used to take apart my toys and my parents kitchen appliances and use the parts to make all kinds of gadgets. Sometimes they even worked. Now I use my skills for slightly less constructive things. I like anything that goes BANG.
