1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Birthday Dress - Princess Merida (Brave) on: November 03, 2012 01:24:53 PM
Beautifully done! I went to see Brave with my daughter and right away knew I wanted to make Merida's dress.  Unfortunately, my almost-6-year-old daughter wasn't so keen on being Merida for Halloween and instead picked Rapunzel.  *sigh*  Pink and purple it had to be.  Oh well, maybe next year.  :-)

I saw your other post too...with the red hair!  LOVE!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Rapunzel and Flynn Rider on: November 01, 2012 11:25:14 AM
My daughter wanted to be Rapunzel this year!



Naturally her little brother took her lead and chose to be Flynn Rider.



I made their costumes from head to toe, literally!  I'd have loved to give "Rapunzel" a frying pan.   Grin



For pattern info, etc. please visit the write-up on my blog.

Gorgeous! Looks comfy and modest, definitely a plus at that age! :-)

Congrats katara!  I'm doing wedding stuff too!  My sister's wedding...her dress, bridesmaid dress, flowergirl dress.  Whew!  But that'll all be over the first week of May, so then I'll get back to Christmas stuff.

I did, however, pull off a few Christmas ornaments this week, five to be exact.  They're just from kits my mom gave me (she bought 'em from the Oriental Trading Company).

Wow, this thread has been quiet for a while! Are we in a post-Christmas crafting slump? Smiley I know I am, I have not been able to craft AT ALL this month. School has been crazy... I need to get off my butt and complete at least one more ornament next week!  Wink

Yep...life is happening even if crafting is not.  But I will finish some ornaments before the end of the month!

I love your seasons plaques!  Are they handbuilt from clay?  Is it regular clay ( I don't know the terminology) or the polyclay stuff?  Also; how big are they?  You did such a beautiful job!

Thanks!

I made them from salt dough (2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1 cup water).  Each plaque is about 5 inches across.  I love 'em!  Hubby wants me to make some for our house.

I'm impressed even more now that I know they are salt dough.  I've worked with salt dough many times but I've never achieved that quality of work.  You've inspired me to try again.  Oh one more question, what temp did you bake them at and for how long?  I hope you don't mind all the question, especially considering I'm kind of hijacking the thread.  Sorry

I baked them at a low temp for a long time since they're kind of thick.  I did 200-250 degrees every evening for 3-4 days (probably 4-5 hours per evening).  Just stick 'em in when you get home (or after baking your supper!) and take 'em out when you go to bed.  That way they dry out slowly -- less cracking and browning.  Paint with acrylic paints and seal with polyurethane spray (3 coats).  Hope that helps!

I finally finished these tree plaques for my mom!



They were meant to be done in time for Christmas 2009, but better late than never, eh?  Now I'm packing them away until next Christmas so I won't be tempted to give them to my mom for her birthday in March.  (Actually, I'm using a Sharpie to write "Christmas 2010" on the back so I can't give them to her early!)
