What's next? Star-shaped Santa Clauses with batting beards? Spraypainted gold macaroni concoctions?

Hey, when I was a kid I made a clothespin doll Santa Claus ornament, complete with cotton ball beard (right out of the medicine cabinet) and stuffed belly.  My Santa went to my grandmother; I saw it on her tree a few years ago and it has held up amazingly well. 

Thanks for the reminder.  I think my fondest memories of childhood are the times I spent making things.

That's cool! I know a lot of gammers that would <3 this. Wink

Only as long as you don't use their dice to make it!

Yet another reason to covet old neckties!  Great retro look.

You didn't just make a new shirt that fit, you made it look better than the old shirt.  And hurray for the thrifty use of fabric.  I was just rereading an article by Amy Dacyzyn (of the Tightwad Gazette) in which she talked about cutting down adult-sized garments for fabric to make children's clothes; this is basically the same thing--larger garment becomes smaller garment--and it shows the can-do spirit of the old Tightwad Gazette.

Nice use of an unexpected fabric for the skull.

You could sell these to Star Trek fans.  Embrace you inner geek!  Or your outer one, if you've married a geek or have geek friends.  Which I have, so add me to the people wondering where you got  this fabric.

You mentioned the lining was slippery and hard to sew.  If you have any tips for working with that kind of fabric, I'd love to hear them.

I've seen choke chains at the everything's-a-dollar stores.  Not sure how that compares with "official" purse hardware.  I like the look of the choke chain though. 

And the upholstery fabric.  My father used to do upholstery work as a sideline, and I'm starting to covet his old scrap stash.  You never properly appreciate things until they're gone!

I love it!  The drawing itself has such a nostalgic, fairy-tale feel, and you've done an excellent job with the bag.

899  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: cool tree sheet made into dress on: December 06, 2004 11:17:19 AM
I love this dress.  The simple style of the dress allows the great tree pattern to show to full advantage, and the pink tie looks good with the green--and I say that as someone who's been anti-pink nearly all my life. 

Because of this dress, I think I'll always remember to check the thrift store & garage sale sheets.

FWIW, my local Wal-Mart does carry freezer paper, although they have only one kind.  Reynolds Freezer Paper in a 150 sq. feet roll.  It costs $5.04 here, but W-M prices can vary by location.

I'm looking foward to trying this idea out.  Even if it turns out I don't like stenciling with the freezer paper, the box lists other craft uses, and there's always freezing stuff in it, I guess.
