1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Tear Drop Hats- Attaching fabric to buckram frame? on: March 31, 2011 10:27:51 PM
I hope I'm posting this in the right place, it is not exactly clothing but I wasn't sure if the general sewing area would be appropriate...

I am making a friend of mine a bridal hat with a small veil & a hat for her maid of honor. They're vintage style teardrop hats, which I am new to. I have made tons of fascinators & accessories, just never hats. So I ordered a couple mini teardrop buckram frames and I'm going fabric shopping tomorrow for the rest of the supplies but I cannot find a hat tutorial that answers my question anywhere on the net.

I have seen a lot of people put a felt or soft fleece as a lining on the hat before their fabric but I'm wondering if this is necessary? I plan to use satin or perhaps a silk dupioni to cover the hat and then a thin trim for the edges. I don't want the buckram texture to show through but also don't want to make it too bulky.

I'm also wondering if I need to sew everything down to the buckram frame or if I can use fabric glue? I saw one tutorial use hot glue with vinyl but I'm thinking that would burn the satin/silk.

Thank you so much in advance for any help. If you know of a good tutorial or have any tips for this project it would be much appreciated!!
2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Home made hair growth/scalp treatments? on: January 22, 2010 08:12:01 AM
I want to do some major pampering between now and my wedding and get my hair in good shape, but I'm not really a "go to the salon" type of person. I'm pretty DIY in all aspects. So I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of good hair treatment recipes? Or perhaps suggest some ingredients that I could put into my own for hair help?

My main issue is that my hair has become much thinner over the past few years. I'm in my early 20's and I'm thinning majorly on the top because of some medical issues that I have... and I really don't want that to show in my wedding photos. I'm master of comb-overs and I'm going to use my curls to their most with my wedding hair-do but I still want any extra boost that I can get.

Are there any EOs that are particularly good to stimulate hair growth, perhaps?
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Shipping guidelines? Customs? on: January 04, 2010 11:05:59 AM
I've been searching the internet for some kind of guide about shipping bath and body products (soap, scrubs, salts, etc) in the US and internationally, and alas, no luck.

Here's the thing, I'm just starting to sell my goodies online- I've been selling other items like hair accessories and paper and whatnot, but I'm not exactly wise when it comes to shipping laws and legalities of it all. I use USPS and generally use Paypal's shipping label system. What is different from shipping ordinary, non-perishable items? I know there are very strict laws with food for customs and whatnot, I don't know if it's the same for these types of items as well.

I'm lost  Huh Thanks in advance for the help!
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Packaging for bath and body products? Plastic tubs? on: December 04, 2009 04:31:26 PM
Salutations!

I've been experimenting with recipes and I'm finally working on launching a beauty and body products line in my shop. I'm going to be offering body lotions, butters, scrubs, mineral makeup, lip glosses and sticks, etc. I'm having a hard time finding the packaging that I want for my scrubs and lotions.

At the moment I'm mostly hunting for 4-6 oz clear plastic tubs that I can apply my own labels to. Most of what google has lead me to thus far required large orders and I'm just looking for a case to start with- not 200 pieces. I'm trying to offer natural products at a budget price so I'm looking for something in the range of $1 per tub if I can find it.

Any suggestions of decent vendors?

(I apologize if there is a post with good packaging advice somewhere, I hunted but couldn't find the info I needed)
5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fascinators & hair clippies- pictures abound! (added a few more) on: September 09, 2009 10:25:25 PM
I've always been one to wear a lot of hair accessories but lately love has intensified.. I've been churning out lots of hair clips & fascinators.

The newest one, which I finished today is done with a little wire bird's nest. I have no idea who to credit the original idea with as I have seen it all over, but I think they're really cute.


Here are a few more that I've made lately:
















I have a craft blog where I have more of my things posted if you're interested in seeing the rest.
