Is there a YouTube video on how to make the basic mask large pattern. I am trying to make the mask that is of turquoise color that covers down over the chin!!

Sometimes woodcarvers will work off of patterns, if you have any patterns you've created and would like to share you can post it here!!!! You can also post an idea for a pattern (including roughly what size you would want it to be) for a woodcarving project, and maybe one of the members of the group can create the pattern for you.

Trying to get a jump on my costume this year for halloween and I want to a) plan ahead better, and b) base it on my character in Second Life. Problem is I have been looking at everything from shower curtains to upholstery materials, trying to find a solution, without much luck. Mainly due to the "best" match for what I want to try being an upholstery category material (and even that isn't.. quite right), but I have a lot of yardage involved, and it costs like $27 a yard or something... :p Basically, what I am looking for is something rubber like, so flexible, not overly "glossy", with enough thickness it can be layered, but with fairly fine detailed patterning on it. The original "suit" this is supposed to mimic looks a bit like layers of flexible armor, layered over each other, but both due to the design not being mine, and the prospect of, once done, photoing the result, doing a bit of Photoshopping on it, and "replacing" the in-world version I currently have, I want to make it slightly different. The problem, of course is that I am running into a problem of finding any material, never mind what fits the bill, save for, maybe, buying just smooth, rubber sheeting, similar to inner-tube material, then trying to do something with it. But, how, if I had PVC rubber, do I add texture to the thing (other than, for example, trying to airbursh a pattern over it, which I have zero skill at)? Nearly everything is the wrong material, too big a texture, or just.. not one that will work. Mind, best possible texture would be something like: http://i19.photobucket.com/albums/b194/Dakra/Tech256.jpg But, that ain't happening, so.. something like: http://image.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/75178/75178,1310971434,2/stock-photo-hi-tech-background-blue-metal-texture-81298300.jpg or even a very small pattern or honeycomb, like: http://images.colourbox.com/thumb_COLOURBOX2412500.jpg Would work. Heck even if I had to decal the stuff on, somehow.. But I am at a loss here as to what material to use (mainly do to finding a place to get it cheap, and not in some insane amount), and if I can get it, how to make the result not look something like the attached image, or better, add the texture to it I would like to see. Any ideas at all?

I'm looking to make my own men's suit - i.e. jacket and pants. Does any have, or have a link to, patterns for a suit? I can't find anything using google, but not having looked for patterns before, there may be an awesome resource out there that I don't know about. We are hosting a Zoolander-theme party, and I want to make an awesome suit out of animal/snakeskin print material. As a side note, how much effort would it be to make a suit? I'm not talking something that you could display as art, just something that looks the part, and wont fall apart on the night. Thanks! Alex

So I had a problem choosing a pattern that I was going to decorate a notebook with. I looked up patterns and designs on Google images, but most were either all too complicated or just not appealing to me. So I decided to create my own design. I had a few guidelines for the design: 1. It had to reflect my personality somehow. 2. It can't be too complicated 3. I had to like it, of course. I looked around for inspiration on Google and Ikea, and found this design where it was a feather with stripes surrounded by lines, circles, and curves. And it hit me, a picture surrounded by different patterns. Since I'm Asian, I immediately thought of a cute panda. Then, I google searched a tutorial for a panda, drew it, and behold, a panda! After that, I thought that it needed more, so I started drawing random ovals behind it. The ovals looked too plain so I thought about adding more, with patterns! I drew a variety of patterns in the ovals/circles and the picture is my result. If you look close enough you can see my other attempted patterns on the back of the paper, including feathers and toast. I'm just random like that. Pip pip toodley doo!

Hello! I have an idea for a Halloween costume that involves using a service like Spoonflower to create custom fabric to make into a suit. However the design isn't just an all-over design that I can just lay the sewing pattern over and cut out, but instead relies on me being able to make a custom design specifically for each piece of the suit pattern. Basically, I want to do something along these lines, only for something larger like a man's suit. I'm trying to find a digital sewing pattern or template that I could open in Photoshop so I could design each piece of the pattern the way I want it, but either I'm really bad at searching for stuff on the internet, or this sorta stuff is super rare/doesn't exist. I could buy a pattern for the sort of suit I'm looking for, but I'm not sure how I would be able to scan or otherwise transfer that pattern into the computer in an accurate way. I'm afraid I will scan the pieces in poorly and end up with an unusable pattern by the time I'm done. So I suppose my question is: Does anybody know if there are any patterns available in a digital format somewhere online either for free or for purchase? And failing that, does anybody know a reliable way of digitizing a pattern that will insure that the measurements won't be screwed up in the process? Thanks!

I'm trying to find a bunch of patterns for various pieces of medieval garb. The idea is that I want to make a bunch of outfits from my book, mostly as visual aids, but also as cosplay (because it's way more fun to dress up as your own characters than someone else's). If anyone can help me find the patterns, I need them for: Tunics (both laced and otherwise) Trousers Hooded cloaks Kirtles (sleeveless and long-sleeved) A buckled leather jacket (i.e. a jacket with buckles in place of buttons) (it's for a male character, by the way) I would preferrably like the patterns to be free, but, if not, I need them to at least be downloadable. The jacket will probably be a little tricky, since it's leather and not a very common design, but if anyone can find somewhere that sells them fairly cheaply, let me know. Of course, I'm not going to dump the work on everyone else and then slack off. I'm going to keep searching as well, so I can compare ideas and suggestions from everyone.

Ok, I'm kinda looking to gather some general statistics related to people with a DO-It-Yourself/Constructive/Experimental personality. To a degree it has to do with left-handed/right-handed issue, but I want to take other traits and preferences into consideration. Please humor me and give me some details. I'll post my results and possibly a few guesses as to what they mean. 1)What kind of grades do/did you recieve in school? (A,B,C,D,F) 2)Are you right-handed, left-handed, or fully ambidextrous? 3)What types of books/articles do you read? Novels, How-To, Socialogical, etc. 4)Are you multi-lingual? 5)Were you raised in a one-parent or two-parent home? Other? 6)Do you consider yourself an optimist, or a pessimist? 7)Are you religious/spiritual? 8)WHat is your one greatest priority in life? 9)With most of your projects/experiments do you: succeed, fail, quit, procrastinate.

A couple of weeks ago, I bought an Ativa (Office Depot store brand) wireless mouse on sale for $15. It appears that they were clearing out stock, because they no longer list it on their website, but this is the closest thing I've found. I like the mouse, particularly because there is a built-in charger in the wireless tranciever for the two Ni-MH AAAs it takes. Yes, AAAs, the link is for a different mouse.Problem: Lousy resolution, I think. the wired Lenovomouse that came with my computer worked just fine on my smooth, blank desk surface, but this one requires much more of a pattern. I don't like mousepads. Scribbles with a pencil work well so far, but they smudge after a day or so. I want to put some sort of pattern on my desk for it to read. My best idea was a laser-cut random bitmap stencil and a can of black spray paint, but I don't have a laser cutter. Ideas?

I'm new to arduino. I managed to get one working for my phoenix headpiece, however I'm working on a new project and would love to make something with multiple patterns on about a meter of neopixel strip. I'm not that interested in learning how to write arduino code, and after struggling just to get one basic pattern working last time I am wondering if there are either out of the box controllers out there with pre-programmed patterns (does this exist?), or good apps for generating code that offer something other than frenetic chase/blink type patterns. I really like more organic and/or slow fading patterns. I've found a few things searching online, but given my newness I'm having a hard time narrowing in on what would be best for a total noob :) One alternative to arduino that came up was Pixelblaze, in case anyone has ever used one of those controllers.Any advice welcome!

Sprite Stitch is a neat blog devoted to turning classic video game scenes and characters into cross-stitch patterns. Since that just means gridding them out and picking suitable colors, it's also a great resource for all sorts of projects: knitting, mosaics, or even LED art. Who doesn't want a Pac-Man scarf, a Super Mario Brothers tiled shower, or a glowing wall of Space Invaders?Bookmark this one for future use. I'll be referencing it when we redo our bathrooms.

Hello Crafters! I am looking for a good, versatile design for a messenger or field bag. I know there is a great, recent "-ible" for a leather field bag, but it doesn't seem like what I'm looking for. I want to make this bag out of canvas or denim, and then wax it to water-proof it (using another -ible found on this site!). I definitely do not want to make this out of leather, however, I'm open to including leather accents; possibly the front flap, or a hand-tooled leather patch on the flap.Would someone post a good pattern for me? Thanks in advance!

Hi, Thanks for reading my question. I've been looking for a simple arduino code that repeats a couple of button presses. In my search I came across http://nakubu.com/post/25 this code repeats the button presses. But the thing is it only repeats when the button is pressed and the time in-between the presses. The program doesn't record the time the button was pressed. Can anyone help change the code so it records a complete pattern? TheExternalDisk
