I adore this.  Need to add it to my ever growing list of projects.
12  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / My Rendition of the Tooth Fairy. Halloween 2010 on: November 10, 2010 04:22:33 PM
Not as much sewing and crafting went into this as I would normally do for a costume but since I found this dress NWT at the Goodwill for $1.29 and adored it, dh and I decided to use it as the base for our couples costume and decided that going as the Tooth Fairy and a Dentist would be fun.

Crafting for this consisted of making my jewelry, wand, and wings.  For the jewelry Dh made the teeth out of polymer clay and we worked together on stringing the glass beads.  My wand was made out of a vintage button, ribbon, and felt and was glued onto a glow in the dark blue stick that I got at the dollar store.  The only wings we could find were neon green so I spray painted them with black Krylon.  I did not want to wear the wing straps so we took a wreath hanger (the over the door ones) bent it straight and then bent it around the wing mid section to hold it tight and then shaped the rest of the hanger to fit with the curve of my back.  I wore both a long (think bridal) and normal strapless bra and we shoved the wreath hanger down between the bras and my back to hold it in place.  The wings stayed tight to my back all night and really looked attached to my body.  To hide the hanger on the wings, I made a big tooth out of felt and tacked it onto the wings.  I also glued swarvski crystals on my face to round out the look.

Only sewing done to the dress was to put two darts in the back as I have lost a bunch of weight since I bought it and it was falling down.  Luckily the wings hide the darts.  

Thanks for looking.

Here is a link to a Jellyfish costume at Family Fun.  Maybe it will help give you some inspiration.

Great "jar".  I would love to know the name of the artwork that has the couple/ trees on it if anyone knows.
17  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Holy Damask Jigsawing Batman! Or, look at the wall art dh and I made. on: July 25, 2010 03:03:52 PM
We are doing a bedroom remodel on the cheap and needed a big piece of art to go above our bed.  Everything we looked at to buy was pretty pricey but fortunately, I ran across a blog with this project on it a couple weeks ago.  Our piece is 4 foot wide by 33 inches tall.  It has brown felt for the backing to match our 99 cent Goodwill bedskirt and the Ikea shelves which are a deep chocolate brown.  The project cost about $30. There are about 8 hours of our life into this project.  5.5 alone just to do the jigsawing.





Blog I found the project on.  It is an awesome blog with great projects and tons of refurb hints.

18  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / A whole lotta dyeing going on. Fast and Electric LWI on: July 08, 2010 04:39:06 AM
Spent last weekend in a dyeing frenzy.  It has been a couple of years since I had my dyes out of their boxes and it felt good to put them to use again.  Most of what is dyed are hand me down clothing given to my kids that had minor staining on it plus a few clearance t-shirts.  

My three in their new duds.  Boy's requested Kanji iron ons for their shirts.  Tallest boy's kanji means "fast" and my other boy's kanji means "wind"



Long sleeved dye for fall (kids were troopers as it was 95 degrees when these pics were taken.  The blue/ black combo in my son's shirt is my fave of the dye that I did this go around.  I love how it sets off his blue eyes.  DD wants me to add some type of fall silhouette to her shirt.



Hand me down white polo that had seen better days.  Kanji iron on for the front with the meaning of the kanji displayed on the back.





Thanks for looking. Smiley

20  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: HOW DID IT GO???? Were crafty gifts received well?? on: December 26, 2009 07:00:28 AM
I gifted very little this year that was hand made because a.) the food co-op I run had its ordering and distribution right before Christmas and b.) I made 14 costumes for our churches Christmas play.

The things I did gift went over well.  My kids adore their owl ornaments and love the reverse applique technique I used on some RTW shirts.  The candy and cookies that I make yearly are always received well also.
