1  Vintage Yellow Tulle Lace Gown Repair in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HSG on: February 08, 2016 07:35:35 AM
Here is another gown repair I recently completed. This had a tear in the lace overlay in the middle of the back of the gown. Most likely this happened when the young lady wearing it put her shoe heal through the lace. This one is not quite as old as the last one, it's from the 1950's.

This is such a sweet gown. Hopefully it will now be worn again. Smiley

2  Vintage Clothing Repair in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by HSG on: February 03, 2016 08:28:43 AM
As my part time job I do clothing repair to vintage clothing. I love being able to take something that is unwearable and return it to its former beauty.

This is one of the latest rescues done. It is a 1930's bias cut velvet gown. From improper storage the sleeve had ripped.

Most all the beading was still there and the gown was otherwise in excellent condition.

Here is the overall gown so you can tell the area that was repaired.

cmarion is truly an artist, and I feel very fortunate to have swapped with her twice now. She is so talented and meticulous in her creations.

Feast your eyes on "One Tiny Raven Woman", she can appear larger at any time.

Wing span and standing. It is completely pose-able!


Thank you so much cmarion Smiley I could not love this Raven anymore.

That little bird tin is too sweet! Nice bright colors. Smiley

He is too adorable!!!  I love the burlap and the little twig!  Is the fringe around the eyes frayed burlap?

Great job, HSG!
Burl's frayed eyes are hemp rope. Don't smoke him though Cheesy



Glad you like him cmarion Smiley

Holiday Family Favorites


Is your turkey drool worthy? Is your pumpkin pie the thing of dreams? What about your ham, is it something the pigs volunteer for? Does the smell of your Snickerdoodles make the neighbors come knocking? Do you have a dish that is something everyone talks about all year? That one special dish you only make during a holiday time? If you answered yes to any of these, then Craftster has just the challenge for you!

10  Painted Coil Bowl in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by HSG on: November 09, 2015 02:02:36 PM
This is a new - to - me twist, on an old favorite. If you check the tag cloud for coil, you will see loads of bowls and other coiled creations. alwaysinmyroom taught a bunch of the mods how to make these addictive projects. Smiley

This one is created using the cotton clothes line and acrylic paints. The colors were just to try out the technique. You can also use inks, and dyes.

The paints cannot be too thick or the needle will break. More than once. Roll Eyes I thinned mine just with water, and that was good. You can also paint after the bowl has been created. Using stencils or whatever you can imagine.

I found the idea on this blog:

Thank you for looking.  Smiley
