891  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Austen/literary-themed crafts... on: December 02, 2004 08:42:31 AM
It's great to see so many Austen fans here.  I hate to sound like a dittohead, but great minds think alike, right?  Totally agree about the A&E version of Pride and Prejudice.  Mr. Darcy is the sexiest of Austen's heroes anyway, and Colin Firth was particularly yummy in the role.  The Regency dress at Sensibility would make a great wedding dress; if my sister ever gets married, I wonder if I can bully--I mean, gently persuade--her into choosing that dress, which would sooo suit her figure.  I love xmelinda's Photoshopped author's pictures, and the idea for book pillows--if you start making either one of those, how would you ever stop?

As for things to use in Austen crafts, I know this isn't original, but some of the older editions of Austen's novels (and other 19th century novels, for that matter) have good illustrations that could be copied and played with.  Your public or university library may have older editions to look through.  One day I want to do something with some of those great old Dickens illustations or some of the ones from the Staunton Complete Shakespeare--maybe coloring sheets or a small framed picture for the craft/guest room.

And I want to see what booglass was planning.

892  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Re: Red Sox Crafts? on: December 02, 2004 08:07:33 AM
Back in late summer, Wal-Mart was selling fabrics with various baseball team logos on them; I'm pretty sure there was a Red Sox one in the selection.

I bought a remnant of the Atlanta Braves fabric, thinking I'd come up with something to make for my sister, who's been a major Braves fan since she was 9 or 10 years old.  So far I've made a checkbook cover, an odd-looking bookmark (it's too big, and the red, white, and blue ribbons at the end seem a little weird for a sports-themed item), two potholders, and a butcher-style apron.  I'm quite proud of the apron; I edged it with red bias tape and made red ties that go nicely with the color of the Braves logo.  And I still have a small piece of fabric left.  I may just give it to her.  I was thinking of an oven mitt to continue the kitchen theme, but I'm not sure I want to do that.  If I finish the sock monkey I started for some unfathomable reason, I may put it in a Braves vest and give it to her.

893  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: old denim shirts on: December 02, 2004 07:47:31 AM
Going through my fabric a couple of weeks ago I found the back and sleeves saved from an oversized, striped denim shirt.  I made a butcher-style apron.  The back of the shirt only had to be shaped a bit to make the body, and the sleeves I cut up to make apron ties and two pockets.  It turned out well enough that I decided to make my sister an apron for Christmas.
