I LOVE these. Did you use any special kind of glitter? What adhesive did you use?

Thanks, guys! I really appreciate all the comments. Smiley

@LoveNTheOcean: It took me about 3-4 hours every day for 4 days. It was kind of trial and error as I made up some notes for the design and went to town. The waist is actually just a very stiff cotton fabric. There is a zipper up the back that I forgot to take a picture of.

The dress is truly adorable. About how long did it take to make?

I made a little skirt. It may be difficult to see the waist band, but it's four inches wide.



All that pleating. Phew.
8  COOKING / Dessert / Re: Cheapest/Easiest Last min gift ever-Chocolate Toffee Pieces; "Christmas Crack!" on: December 09, 2009 12:59:46 PM
I just wanted to post a couple of pics of my own experience making this (too!) delicious chocolate covered crack. I made it as a Christmas present for a close friend and her family. My first pan was pretty terrible. The lesson learned was this: do NOT use whipped butter for this recipe. It will only give you about half of the butter you actually need. Second lesson: do NOT put your hand under a spoon dripping with boiling hot toffee...that's just a general life lesson.

Second batch was waaaaay better.




My little additive: toasted almond slices. VERY nice. Just toast in a sauce pan over low heat before you sprinkle on melting chocolate.



To all the skeptics going: "Saltines? Really?" I swear, it's fantastic.

Ah! I love/want/need the "Proud to be an English Major" bag!!

I was an English Major but ended up working in the High-Tech industry where all I do is math and all of my co-workers are Computer Science majors. They look at my like I'm totally nuts when they find out I studied Shakspeare Smiley.

Great great job. Your designs are fabulous.

Thank you!

English majors have to stick together; however, it's often hard to get us out of our dark corners and away from our books so that we can congregate. Smiley

Hi, guys.

I just wanted to show off a few of my travel/cosmetic bags and pouches. The designs are my own and are printed on treated cotton fabric using an inkjet printer.







A little shot of the lining.


They are all water-resistant and vegan friendly. I enjoyed making them, though the construction was simple. What I am really proud of are the designs. God save Photoshop.

A tip for making flat-bottomed bags: the angle is really key. I had a hard time trying to get the corners to match up when making the bottom of the bag and really had to tweak it. Practice, practice is all I can say.

E.M.
