1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making Backless Bras on: December 27, 2010 02:53:14 PM
Has anybody made a backless bra?? Or reconned a bra to have a pretty back so that you could wear it with backless shirts and dresses?Huh

Recently I've started thinking about that but I'm not too sure where to go from the idea. haha I was thinking first off get some second hand bras to try it on so I don't wreck mine....then once I figure it out then I'll use one that I like the fit of and change it.

I also don't have easy access to any sewing stores at the moment to get all the pieces either, but I think once I get ready to actually make a good one I'm going to go to Fabricland and look at what they all have to work with. I use a lot of thrift store things for my sewing so this would require a bit more work...

Anyways, any idea where to start???
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Making clothes for self ---> making clothes to sell? on: December 12, 2010 08:27:15 AM
Haha, I decided to try selling my stuff because whenever people would find out that I make my own clothes (like if they saw me wearing a shirt of mine) they would ALWAYS ask if I have ever thought of selling my clothes. I always thought no because that's too much work having to make multiple sizes, etc, etc, then I learned about Etsy...which is exactly me. I can make all sizes or I can make only one size. I can make the shirt once and never again.

I already have a HUGE stash of fabric. I pick up cool fabric everywhere I see it. I probably have at least 20-30 different pieces of fabric stashed away........

So how did you go from making your clothes just to wear them to making clothes to sell to other people???


I've been making clothes for a good couple years now and I am looking into selling my clothes on Etsy/Artfire/etc. My problem is whatever I make I always like it so much that I don't want to give it away. I also don't make too many things twice since I don't often use patterns either.

But to sell things I've thought up some of my really simple patterns for shirts that I've made before so I'm going to first start by making multiples of those shirts. And do some other sizes too maybe. This way I won't be so tempted to keep them.

So what about you?

Usually I like to have things done WAY ahead of time, but this didn't bother me. Actually, it wasn't finished completely until the morning of my grad. haha The train part of the lining was longer than the rest and my mom wouldn't cut it so I had to get my boyfriend's cousin to cut it on that day once I had it on. lol

The only fabric store I have access to right now is EXPENSIVE as crap. I usually use what's around, which is why I started with bedsheets. I don't usually line but I'm trying to so my clothes look nicer.

So just that. When you have to line a shirt or dress, what do you use??

Right now, for myself, I use a bedsheet. I have needed to line some white fabric since it was sort of see through and all I had at that time was a white bedsheet so that's what I've been using for a while now.
8  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Make Your Own Vanilla Extract *UPDATE* on: November 27, 2010 11:50:06 AM
I'm thinking I should definitely try this some day. I tend to do a lot of baking. I never use the real vanilla since it is so darn expensive. But this would be so much fun to try. But...I'll either have to wait until I'm age to buy the vodka Tongue or get my mom to. lol

I like the idea of the vanilla sugar! That would be a neat way to use the beans after you've made the vanilla. Hmm. I'll have to do that, too, I think. Tongue
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Hot Chocolate on a Stick! on: November 27, 2010 11:45:33 AM
www.giverslog.com . . .

So, who's made them??

I'm doing baking baskets for a lot of people for Christmas (as well, a family of five girls are all getting small bags of homemade hair toys and bath/body stuff and thought it'd be nice to stick one or two of these in each of their bags).

I did a quick, half assed trial run the other day. They tasted good though my chocolate wasn't the best and I didn't have enough of it so there were some clumps...so I can only imagine how great they would taste with good chocolate and enough of it. 

My boyfriend has some fondue chocolate that he got for grad since I had a chocolate fountain at my social. I was thinking of using that for most of them.

I was also thinking of putting crushed up candy canes in some would be kind of cute, or putting crushed up candy cane on top? Or dipping them into white chocolate once they're done...I've got lots of things I want to experiment with.  Oh! And I was thinking of putting homemade marshmallows on the stick, too!

There's a different kind of hot chocolate on a stick. It's more like a fudge type. I'm thinking of blending the two recipes and playing around to see which I like best.

I should do that "freezer soup" idea! That would be a really good idea...

I don't think I have anything of my own right now but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this. Smiley
