81  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Re: Wedding dress reconstruction! on: July 02, 2009 05:37:26 PM
Made myself a corset from the top, some necklaces from the beads, a veil for my mother out of the tulle underskirt, & covered a book with some of the satin skirt.  I still have some beads, flowers, & satin leftover.  Thinking I may make a ring bearer pillow for my daughter's wedding, since she's just 7 months old I think I have some time.

Use them to hold hair bows & such.  You could tack one on the wall & hide a picture inside it like a locket

Martha Stewart once had in her magazine a wall with tons of pretty handkerchiefs all framed.  It looked so cool & you don't have to cut apart an heirloom.

Wow! Shocked Those bibs are so much easier than the one's I've been making from old makeup bags.  I'll be shopping for placemats from now on!
85  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: I want to make a "Stunt Double" on: July 09, 2008 11:29:55 AM
To hold up the double I would put a stick or shower curtain rod in a 5 gallon bucket then fill it with gravel, sand, or cement.  I'm going to stuff my double with plastic bags from the grocery store.  Unfortunatly or fortunalty I found I was pregnant after buying the duct tape, but I didn't get started making it.  There is no telling what size I will be after this one! Shocked
86  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: crafts from a wedding dress? on: July 05, 2008 08:09:49 PM
I just cut up mine after 10years.  The top I made into a corset with elastic in the back (it was 5 inches too small).  The tulle underneath was used to make my Mom a veil (bit a role reverse).  I have yet to decide on the skirt, but I think I might dye it, shorten it, & give it a different waist line.  I saved all the beads & the roses in case I have a daughter or daughter-in-law who want a neckless or corsage for their wedding day.  I have many pictures of me enjoying the dress & don't feel bad at all for repurposing it.

I find the more I do the better I get.  I started on hemming my jeans.  If something is destined for Goodwill I might practice different stitches on it.  If your unsure of measurements use something that already fit you well, measure & add an inch for the seams.  Keep at it & if you make a mistake, that's why they invented seamrippers.

I found this cool pant redo.  I used a too tight tanktop for the band.  Didn't take but half hour to do.
