21  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Ottawa - Craft Sale Season is coming on: October 17, 2008 10:34:04 AM
OK, so I know it's a whole year after you posted this, but if it was Craft Fair season then, it should be now, right? =)
I would love to check out some craft fairs in the Ottawa area, I actually live just across the border on the US side  Undecided
But I love Ottawa, and it's the closest city to me...anyways, do you know of any craft fairs going on this year?
22  CANADA / Ontario / Re: Ottawa Polymer Clay Classes? on: October 17, 2008 10:29:04 AM
oooh, I would sooo do that too! I live a couple hours from Ottawa, though it's the closest city to me...so if it was more of a weekend workshop kind of thing, that would work better.
Anyway....sorry I don't have more info, I just want to do this too =)

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Umbrella Skirt 2!!! on: October 15, 2008 11:19:35 AM
So...I got LOTS of awesome comments on my first umbrella skirt: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=263260.0

So I thought I'd post my second attempt here too:

So...I tried to make this one more wearable than the original...I made the waistband out of a pair of pants I had laying around in my stash...made it thicker than the typical waistband...then added the tab detail...that was on the pants originally...
then...the umbrella for the skirt part...it was a cuter print than the original, I think...
Anyway, here's a close up of the print:

the edges (I left on the little metal thingies):

and on my dressform (it doesn't fit quite right, so I had to pin it, that's why there's that huge wrinkle, it isn't usually there):

I like the way it turned out, what do y'all think?

Those are awesome! I have those marble beads too, though I never thought of using so many at once.
Anyways, awesome job!! What did you use to make holes in the puzzle pieces?

that's cute!! How did you do it?
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: weird little skirt thing on: October 15, 2008 09:37:01 AM
YAY! Thanks for all the AWESOME comments, everyone!!!! =)
I think I'll keep it as is for now, I had the same thoughts as you, kbg027, about the shirt, but it would need some major alterations to look good on me =)
NyteRayn, if you make one, be sure to post pics!!! =)
Thanks again everyone!!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cherries and Flamenco Dancers on: October 13, 2008 03:38:20 PM
So...I painted on a couple shirts, nothing incredibly special, but I'm proud.


sorry for the blurriness

close up of design:

AND Flamenco Dancers!!
I thought these were kind of cool-I'll probably recon the shirt further, I'm thinking a boat neckline thing.

OK, now that I'm looking at the picture, these dancers are right on the boob areas =)
That was NOT intentional  Tongue
oh well
Anyways, tell me what y'all think!!!!! thanks =)
30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / weird little skirt thing on: October 13, 2008 03:34:02 PM
So...little story here. I was at the thrift store (where I can often be found  Tongue) and I saw these pants. They were pink, white, lime green, and red stripes. I was all, I MUST BUY THESE!!!! So. I did. And they sat in my studio for months and months while I tried to figure out what to do with them....anyway, here's a picture of the pants pre-FrankenClothes-ing:
The only pic I have of them as pants is modeled by my friend Ellie, who was being a bit strange =)

modeled by the lovely Vivian:

So, I'm not sure exactly what it is...It's a skirt but you can't wear it by itself or it would be a little revealing...But anyways, I'd really love some opinions on it.
