3  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Belly dance costume from curtains and table cloths oh my on: November 02, 2012 10:18:44 AM
This costume was made from curtains and a black circular table cloth.  I did buy beads for the dangly jingles so I would jingle when I moved as well as sequin fabric for the top.  I am in the running for the Holloween Craft challenge so please go and vote for me. 


I crocheted the decorative trim that the beads are attached to on the over skirt.  I cut the straps off of a bra and covered the back portions from the cup to the hooks leaving access to the loop and hook closure.  The sequins came on a stretchy fabric at walmart which I sewed onto the bra. All of the dangly's were hand beaded and then attached to the crocheted trim.  The pants are drawstring.

This is my first time sewing pants as well as crocheting.  I also taught myself to knit although I did not find anyway to incorporate that into the costume.  The disc in the middle of the bra is also crocheted. 







For good measure I included my helpers Charlie and Sparr

C&C welcome

10  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 60 ENTRIES / lighted bed canopy on: March 08, 2011 09:08:45 PM
Hanging Lighted bed canopy
found branches outside (finding branches w/leaves was tricky)
used hemp string to tie together in a tear drop shape w/ support beams in middle so fishing line could be attached to hang it from the ceiling
strung white led lights up in branches
added patches of fabrick covered in rhinestones
covered w/ tule
used screw in hooks to attach to ceiling (via the fish line)
used white extension cord to blend in to wall and ta da pretty canopy
some of the lights flicker which reminds me of fire fly's and the boyfriend calls it "the cloud"
hope you all like it
