3331  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Swap (CLOSED! ~ Sendouts 11/5) on: September 20, 2010 06:15:29 AM
My partner skipped a lot of questions on the questionnaire, but I think I know what I'm going to make anyway.  I'd like to start crafting before my school semester starts, but it's going to be a fine balance with time management just to get my house packed up in time to move as it is.  We'll see.

You can feel free to PM and ask for answers to those questions.  Or ask any new questions you may have. Cheesy

The rental costumes arrive by tractor trailer tomorrow...  Too bad they're being delivered to another building, and we're having to organize how to get them over to ours.  Across a hill.  With no clear rolling/wheel chair access.  The scene shop boys and stage management are supposed to help.  We'll see how that goes.  Oh, and despite the fact that we're renting the show, we cannot use the following costumes, and had to build them:
the Enchantress
all of Cogsworth's costumes
all of Madame de la Grande Bouche's costumes
all of Lumier's costumes

And to top it off, we were short on "enchanted" objects, so I'm making a costume for a Vase of Flowers, and a dancing Broom.  The only fun part so far has been what I did Friday afternoon.  I made a hat for the Vase costume.  Here I am with it in progress:

I'll have to post the whole costume on stage at some point!

I have not heard from my partner yet, I hope she's ok she has very few posts and wists so I can't start drafting ideas Sad

She may be out of town for the weekend.  Several people mentioned being tied up for a day or two.  Just send her a nice PM, and see what happens in a day or so.  Smiley

Thanks for all the nice comments guys!

Let's see...
That's amazing! And it's definitely manly Smiley He's a lucky guy. Where did you get the fabric?

I found the fabric at Hancock Fabrics.  It was in a line called "Tallships".

How thick did you make the padding in the bag?

I used 2 layers of thin cotton quilt batting.  The whole thing is about 1/4 inch thick.  About half a centimeter?

This is awesome! I had the hardest time finding a decent case for my netbook...and this looks great!

It seems like everyone has a little netbook now.  First Jim, and now all my student workers wander around with them.  After we finish getting Beauty & the Beast onstage, I'll try to make up a tutorial.

The cupcakes do look very tasty!

And just as an FYI, the Guinness & Jameson cause the Bailey's to curdle, not "curtly", within the glass.  No one wants to drink little bits of curdled Irish Cream!  Cheesy

And thanks for saying that Sandra22.  There are a few drinks here that we Americans order and enjoy frequently, that have rather insensitive names.  The other really popular one that springs to mind is the Black & Tan, which is not very nice for our Irish friends.  To us, it's just a harmless name based on the color of the two beers.   Undecided

Absolutely adorable MareMare!!!  I love the fact that it's subtly Alice in Wonderland, while also just being a fun piece on it's own.  Cheesy

OK, I've seen lots of candy sushi out there, but this is by far the cutest I've ever seen.  Nicely done!!!

I received the most beautiful mini quilt from pinkleo yesterday!  (I had come home late Friday night hoping it would be there, but alas, the mailman made me wait till Saturday afternoon.)

The quilt is called Moonrise, and I absolutely love it.  It is currently brightening up my rather drab hallway.  (Our hall is a tiny square room, with all other rooms in the house radiating off of it like spokes on a wheel, so we have to walk through the same ugly room to get anywhere else in the house.  It really needed some art!)

Enough chat, onto the pictures!

Detail of the painting of the face:

Have I mentioned that I love that she shimmers subtly?  Because I do!  I can't decide which part I love more the shimmering/sparkling, or her beautifully done blue hair...  So pretty!

Detail of the 3-D elements, which include stuffing of the Moon Goddess, and heat-set rhinestone stars!

And here's another whole quilt shot, to show you the wall she now graces:

Isn't that the perfect size in that space???


Oh no!  I forgot to include a picture of the awesome fabric Pinkleo sent too!  It's just too cute for words, and I'm debating what I should make with it.  I'm leaning towards cute skirt....

I love the little rotary cutters, and tomatoes.   Cheesy

My DH headed back to school this semester to finish his degree.  He's been out of school for almost 6 years now, and it's been an adjustment for both of us with him going back.  The good part is he's attending classes at the university I work for, so I get to see him a few times a day and usually we have lunch together.   Cheesy

He had been carrying his netbook around in his backpack, or in an old over-sized laptop case that he had to strap it into.  That just wouldn't do!  So I let him pick out some fabric from my stash and set about making him a hopefully "manly" quilted netbook case. DH picked out some antique map fabric, which I had bought when making steampunk potholders for the awesome Wulf

The quilting, which is done in purposely wonky stripes, is actually on the inside, so that the outside is nice and sleek looking.  I had originally planned to do buttons and button holes on it, but when we were in the fabric store looking around, DH picked out these antiqued bronze clasps instead.
