1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Finally finished my son's Tutenstein costume! on: October 17, 2007 10:21:11 PM
OK so my son wanted to be Tutenstein for Halloween.  This is a character from a show (called Tutenstein) that plays on Discovery Kids... basically about a child mummy who is revived by this girl named Cleo (daughter of an Egyptologist) using the scepter of Was...they get into wacky predicaments etc. etc.  It is a really cool show.  I usually hate kids shows but I really love this one.  Anyway!  It was a lot of work but I am finally DONE!!! Hooray! Cheesy  So, the pics:




this was before I had made the wrappings and loincloth.  I think you can see his scepter better in this one.


That is Tutenstein.  I know the colors are a bit off, but that was my son's choice, lol.  He wanted a dark blue loincloth instead of a light blue one and insisted that the wrappings were GREEN. 

Anyway I like how it turned out. Smiley  All that's left is to paint his face, which we will obviously do at the last minute.

2  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Lining shoes? on: October 06, 2007 05:09:20 AM
Hi all.  So long story short, I used to wear a size 10, now I am a 10 1/2.  Yeah, you have to special order that size. :/  I bought a pair of size 11 canvas shoes from payless : like these but w/ skulls:

http://www.payless.com/Catalog/ProductDetail.aspx?&TLC=Womens&SLC=WomensCasuals&BLC=WomensCasualsComfort&Width=Regular&ItemCode=58852&LotNumber=058862&Type=Adult&Popularity=78&DescriptiveColor=Brown

They are too big, though (it was either that or too small.)  Has anybody ever like, lined the inside of a store-bought shoe to make it a bit smaller?  I was thinking of like, gluing some thick fabric to the inside but I'm not completely sure I'm going to do it.  Just wondering if anybody has any experience w/ that.

TIA, Veronica
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Pink dragon costume for my daughter on: October 04, 2007 06:29:24 PM
When I asked my 3-year-old daughter what she wanted to be for Halloween, she said she wanted to be a "pink dragon".  So this is what I cooked up.  She seems a bit ambivalent about it, but I think she looks adorable...err... I mean, ferocious. Wink


With her wings outstretched.


This is her back and tail. 


and my photos suck... sorry I am not a good photographer... but this is the front. 

Sooo what do you all think?  Suggestions welcome of course. Smiley

4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / summery tank-top sorta thing... on: September 15, 2007 04:20:06 PM
Hi all!  This is my first post.  I love this site and spend waaaay too much time lurking around looking at all of the lovely stuff that you folks make!! I am not at all experienced in sewing but am just now getting really interested in it.  It has become a total obsession.  Anyway!  I made this tank top kinda thing for my 2 year old daughter about a month ago...no pattern, lol I stink at following directions.  I should work on that.  I really like how it turned out, except I probably should have made it a bit bigger on top as she is going through a growth spurt.  Eh, live and learn, right?


that is the back.  


here is the front, obviously not on my daughter


pocket!

Anyway thanks for looking. Cheesy Feedback is appreciated.
