I have a "Secret Santa" type gift to do and I was thinking about making her a deck of usable playing cards but with a specific theme on the back. Any suggestion on either what adhesive to use to attach pictures to cards or a tutorial/tips for making them from scratch???
I have been super into the 40s style clothing lately, even more so than ever. I saw "White Christmas" on stage and some of their outfits were amazing and now with "Agent Carter" on TV it's not helping my craving for these styles at all! What I'm really in love with is the higher waist, wide leg trousers the women are wearing. I love the movement! Anyone ever stumble across a pattern for a plus size pattern for something like that? I'm roughly an 18 with a waist to booty/thigh ratio that makes pants freaking impossible to buy. I was tempting to an regular pattern and adjust it but if I don't have to take that step it'd be great. Thanks!!
So my nephew decided that for Christmas & his birthday he wanted me to sew him a costume for Anime Boston. Of course, it's not something commonly found that I could just put together. It looks like it would be a simple enough pattern to put together but making a pattern is definitely not my strong suit. It's pretty much a jumpsuit and a collar. Any suggestions besides just buying the costume since it's about $125?
My brother and sister-in-law got married on Halloween of '09 with a Dia de los Muertos (Mexican Day of the Dead) theme. They're also very into vintage/retro Rockabilly as well. We even did a Pinup Girl photoshoot for the Bachelorette. (*points to icon*) So for their anniversary I decided to do a quilt with the same fabric they used for placecards and embroidered squares. I was so happy with how it came out and they loved it. It's now hanging on the wall behind their bed. Some of the patterns are UrbanThreads and the swallows are Jenny Hart. Some of the squares are just pictures I found/had that I turned into patterns.
I also wove this mini-scarf to wrap it up with in the colors of her wedding dress/veil.
