581  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stupid Question # 210: Heming a Pleated Skirt? on: November 16, 2008 07:33:50 AM
I'm not an expert, but I would press the pleats out of the bottom of the skirt, and then hem it as I would any other skirt (I usually use a narrow hem ...press under 1/2", roll the edge under and stitch so that the raw edge is hidden and you have a 1/4" hem). When done, just press the pleats back into the hem. Would that work?  Huh  Smiley

Thank you so much for that idea! I'll have to do that! I know of two little princesses that could use a secret treasure box.  Grin

I just wanted to share this little bracelet that I made for my SIL's niece. She's about 5yo and every time I see her, she's my partner for hide-and-seek, or she's dragging me outside to push her on the swings...bottom line, she's a sweet kid. I like her.  Cheesy  Anyway, last time I saw her she told me that she really liked my green crystal bracelet (made from a store-bought kit  Wink), but I know she likes the color yellow. I told her I made it and she asked if I'd make her one. I told her Christmas was coming up soon... so, I made one for her in light yellow and clear crystals with silver beads and a silver clasp (I didn't want to take the chance of her being allergic to nickel). Sorry for the long back-story...hope you like!

I apologize for the dark photos/shadows...I haven't seen the sun in a week.  Tongue

585  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pink Pearl Rosary on: November 14, 2008 03:52:11 PM
My SIL gave birth last month to a little girl, after three boys.  Wink I'm just happy to have a new niece to dote on. So, for her baptism, I decided to make her a rosary and have it blessed by our priest beforehand (we're Catholic, if you hadn't guessed Wink ).

So, I went out today and searched for all my components. Got the last crucifix charm on this side of town. The findings are pewter/base, the beads are glass. (And, I got to take advantage of simultaneous sales in 3 stores on the same street.  Grin ) Then I sat down in front of the TV and bent a lot of  eye pins... and, here is my first attempt at a rosary:



Thanks for looking. Any input is always appreciated!  Smiley

 Shocked That is awesome! He is so detailed! I love that he's hiding a missile behind his back and doing the Dr. Evil pinky-finger thing.  Cheesy What an adorable little dictator! Much better than the real-life Kim.

PumaYui- knit (tric Huh) fabrics with very little stretch work well for poppets - they do not fray or lose their shape. I'm working on one now and I'm using a 'double-knit' fabric that has a little more stretch than the recommended alova suede (she will be about 1.5cm taller than a typical poppet). And, I've used 6-ply cotton sports-weight yarn (suitable for socks) for straight black hair with good results. Happy poppetting!  Cheesy

She's an adorable little imp! I love her face - she really has personality.   Cheesy
