1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Nightmare Before Christmas Sally: Made everything, including wig! on: November 04, 2008 09:08:50 PM
I am a stickler for accuracy, so I found Sally pictures and painstakingly painted fabric, sewed, weaved yarn into a crocheted hat, and tried to make everything as close to the actual Sally as possible. (more pics to come once people send them to me!)

my job actually paid off...makeup by me. Lashes glowed in the dark

Enjoy!
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / black pants? on: September 07, 2008 12:56:46 AM
I have about three pairs of skinny black pants that *ahem* shrunk in the dryer (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). They're a bit too thick to make a shirt out of, and too thin for a coat, so I guess they'll have to remain bottoms of some kind. Only question is, what to do with just black fabric? It's kind of boring, but I don't really have anything at the moment to mix in with it. Any ideas on what I should do?
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Treasure chest frame candleholder beachy centerpiece on: September 06, 2008 08:51:50 PM
I made this a while ago for a friend's beach-themed bridal shower. I bought out Michael's supply of plain wooden treasure chests (really...women were coming up to me and asking where I got them and had to break the news that I bought them all), painted them white and "antiqued" them, then painted the inside with rosebud vines. I made a picture frame out of a roll of magnetic...um, paper, I guess you could call it? One side is sticky and the other is a magnet. I put some sand in the chest, added a candle for some moodlighting, shells in the sand, and a picture of the bride with each of her bridesmaids went on each table (there's just a stick figure of the bride in this one). It looks much nicer in person, but this is the only picture I have at the moment. They were a huge hit, both the bride and groom's family were fighting over who got to take one home at the table. Enjoy!

4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Felt appliques on skirts? on: September 04, 2008 10:22:40 PM
I've never worked with putting a felt applique on a skirt. I'm thinking it would be the best for a skirt I'm working on (a flying piggy! I love piggies) but I'll be sewing it on and I'm wondering how it will launder. Does felt hold up on the gentle cycle?
