21  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Fat Elvis Swap on: March 10, 2010 11:53:18 AM
Oh gosh, this sounds amazing! I'd be up for this, having recently developed an obsession with Elvis...
22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Lyra's Christening Gown (pic heavy) on: March 08, 2010 02:41:57 PM
I made this Christening gown for my friend's little girl Lyra. It's the first time I've ever made any clothing this small so it was a bit of a challenge. Lyra's due to be christened on Sunday! I just finished it yesterday then realised the hem sits funny on one side so it looks like it's longer than it is! Ah well! I cam up with the pattern myself and I quite like it! If I were doing it again though, I would definitely add sleeves (I'm not good with sleeves and I didn't want to risk it in such a short time frame!) The under layer and bodice are sating with a lace trim. The bodice is lined and the skirt has a layer of chiffon over the top. There are two box pleats in the front and three tiny box pleats at the back to give it some good volume. This has been so fiddly to do but I'm quite proud of it, even if it hangs weird (the side that looks longer actually drapes over Lyra's mother's arm  so it looks all cascadey and waterfall like)

As always, C&C welcomed! (BTW, it could do with a good ironing, but I just want it out of my sight for now!)


(Sorry, I can't seem to get this to display right!)

(The front bodice - could do with a good pressing)

(The back view -  you can really see how weird it hangs in this one)

(close up of the back - the neckline meets better when it's on!)

I've never seen one here! I just had to google it to find out what it was. It looks AMAZING!

I love the Decemberists so much! My BF and i went to see them back in November when they were doing the Hazards of Love tour. It was amazing! I'm more jealous of him though, because he got to interview Colin Meloy for the magazine he writes for. He loves the Decemberists too though, so I think he got all gooey eyed and fanboy-esque during the call.

Ooh! I'd be really up for this so long as it was in April. I'm crazy busy until then.

I could probably take on two if you need it? I'm on call next weekend so I'm pretty much confined to my house until the hospital need me so I can work my ass off on stuff. Staves off the boredom...

Oh my gosh, I have so many ideas and so  many things I want to buy and make for this but I'm too scared to start because whatever I make will be the one thing my partner will hate!

As for the names thing, I just realised there's a town near here called "Towcester". That's right, it's pronounced "toaster"! I want to live there!

Some people signed up and immediately I thought "You HAVE to partner with so-and-so!" Cheesy

That's just mean, teasing like that!

For strange names, I live near the Slaughters (there's an Upper and Lower) but I never quite got to my ultimate - Batman in Turkey. It's in a dodgy area so I couldn't go there and get my picture with the sign Sad  I also love the name Splot (just outside Cardiff), though if you're posh the 't' is silent  Tongue

Friends of ours just had a baby girl (we live in Coventry but they're from Stockport) and the week they found out they were having a girl they went to the Slaughters, just so J could say he took his daughter to the Slaughters!

I live near a place called Haseley Knob! It makes me giggle every time I go past. Gaydon isn't too far away either!

I'm so excited about this! i've been trying to think of American things out of the ordinary all week! I've even roped in some friends.

Talking about not paying attention to where you live, I live in Warwickshire, quite close to Stratford-Upon-Avon but have I ever been to the Globe to see any Shakespeare? NO! my old flatmate even used to work there and I never bothered! The last time I was in Stratford I spent the whole day dying to get to Lakeland to buy a cooling rack for my cakes!  Cheesy I'm ashamed of myself...

US people - do you have any Delia Smith over there? (I suppose she's kind of like the closest thing we have to Martha Stewart, if you don't)

I'm trying to figure things out in advance of knowing who I'll get as a swap partner - I'm impatient!
