1  CRAFTING FOR GOOD AND NOT EVIL / Crafty Charitable/Social Causes / "Comfort Quilts" for family members of soldiers? on: August 15, 2007 11:06:30 AM
 While browsing through various craft threads I noticed a woman whose husband is in the military and is being shipped out to Iraq. She also posted that he'd be missing Christmas, birthdays, etc.  And with so many people on this website, I know there's got to be more people with family members in the military.

  What I was thinking was that we could have people volunteer to make some quilt squares with hopeful or inspirational messages or even jokes and funny quotes to brighten up their day and let them know that people out there care about them. Once all the squares were done, someone could volunteer to put the whole quilt together and ship it out to the recipient (and everyone who made a square could chip in a couple dollars to help pay for shipping).

   What do you all think?
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Pink giraffes!! on: August 06, 2007 03:36:20 PM
Well, I was browsing google for pictures of stuffed animals and came across a 6ft stuffed giraffe.  So I printed out the picture and after several attempts, came up with a pattern for a mini version. The first giraffe I made came out all wonky  @_@  But I refined the pattern and came out with a second one, which looked a MILLION times better.

  These 2 are made of pink fleece and colored with sharpie markers. Yes, one of them has a broken leg *awww* The big one is about a foot tall, and the little one is around 9-10 inches tall.

  And one day I plan on making a 6ft tall stuffed giraffe. I already drew out the pattern ^_^







3  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / World's tiniest stuffed animal on: July 06, 2007 01:41:35 PM
I took a break from sewing costume commissions, found a pattern for a stuffed dog, shrunk it, and came up with THIS!!



The little guy is made of blue striped fleece, is fully stuffed, and has glass seed beads for eyes and a thread nose. He only took about 15 minutes to make!  (and yes, that's a penny beside him!)

*EDIT* Puppy now has a friend:
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Civil War Ball gown (lots of images!!) on: July 04, 2007 09:02:30 AM
Hello everyone! My name's Wendy, I'm new to the board ^_^

  This is my first Civil War Ball gown, I designed it myself, then compltly hand-sewed the entire thing (included all 6 undergarment pieces!!) I used Simplicity patterns #5724, #5726, and #9764 as references, but most of the gown and undergarments are from scratch. The gown took about 5 months to finish!! 








Here is the design:


 So now I'll tell you a little about me! I'm 18 yrs old and will be a freshman at West Virginia University in August. I'm doing a double major in Costume and Graphic Design. I've been sewing for about 13 years now, and designing and making my own costumes for about 8 years. I run my own business making and selling costumes on commission, and am doing pretty well with it! ^_^
