1  CRAFTSTER CRAFT CHALLENGES / CHALLENGE 104 ENTRIES / Rapunzel! on: November 09, 2014 03:11:56 PM
So this year I actually got to make my own costume! I've been making my kiddos forever and never leave myself enough time to make my own but this year they chose cheapo $20 costumes from the store. Yay for me!

I chose to be Rapunzel - post hair cut  Wink

Both the bodice and dress were from two different Historic Butteric patterns that I ended up adjusting and altering pattern pieces to get the look I wanted.
I had a lot of fun making this outfit! I have decided that the next time I do something like this I will make a boned corset or bodice as this one doesn't seem to "hold up" as well as I would have liked. It is still a great costume, though, and I've loved wearing it!

Thanks for having a look!

This is for a 4 point swap. You must do either one medium or one large item and the rest is up to you. If you choose to do extras, please please please talk to your partner!! Nobody likes to feel inadequate if they do the requirements and then get exploded all over. While it was meant in kindness and to bless the other person, sometimes you can feel like you didnt do enough even if the other person never intended for that to happen. So, please, talk you your partner.

Sign ups are from June 26 until July 9. Send outs will be August 9, 2014.

Communication is a big deal! If you can't post in the thread once a week then this swap is not for you. If you are going on vacation or will be away from the computer for longer than a week, please just let me know. I do realize there are circumstances where it prevents a person from being able to post but just send me a message and it will all work out.

Also, lets keep this FLAKE FREE! Nobody likes to work their butt off creating something awesome and then not get anything in return. I will send out for an Angel if I have to, but please dont make me.

6  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Once Upon a Time tv series swap on: March 06, 2014 09:28:49 PM
So I was testing the waters to see if anyone would be interested in a Once Upon a Time swap from the tv show? I've never organized a swap before but think I could handle this in about a month if anyone was up for it. What do you guys think of a 5 point swap? Or 4, if more people would want to join. I don't mind the size, really. Let me know who is up for what and we can totally make it happen! Cheesy
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Elsa's Frozen Dress on: February 15, 2014 10:18:25 AM
So my daughter's 7th birthday was three weeks ago and she wanted to have a Frozen themed party. Well, the decorations were easy because it was just after Christmas and we were able to find lots of snowflakes and ice themed things. The hard part was a costume in her size. Even on line I couldn't find anything less that $80 and there was just no way (sorry kiddo) I was gonna pay that. So, with 5 days to go, I went to the fabric store and got all the fixings for an outfit.
I drafted the whole thing myself and decided to make it a top and bottom instead of a whole dress so it can grow with her if she likes.

And I apologize for it being sideways. I've been trying for the last 30 min to get them to flip, but when they do, they are all stretched out. So, they will stay sideways lol



8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / 6 point Steampunk or one awesome steampunk thing swap on: May 24, 2013 04:52:34 PM
Hey all, I was thinking of doing a 5 or 6 point Steampunk swap or an OASTS. I think I would have sign ups in the second week of June for about 10 days and then a nice long swap period so people could make their best items. Maybe send outs the last week of July? Or the first week of August? What do you guys think?

Or I could also do sign ups a little earlier, like the first week of June?
Lemme know if there will be any takers  Wink
9  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Tarzan's Jane - city dress! on: November 07, 2012 03:14:02 PM
Ok, so my 5 year old is in love with Disney's Tarzan. So, she wanted to be Jane for Halloween. Not Jungle Jane. City Jane. In the enormous, poufy yellow dress. So, great! What was the problem? There is no costume like that to be found ANYWHERE! There is not even a pattern for that costume! So, I basically had to Frankenstein the whole thing. But here it is!


The main body of the dress (remove collar, neck tie, front swoop, and bustle) began life as Butterick B5705 - a kids flower girl dress. I began with the petticoat. Now let me just say that I hate scratchy tule against my legs. My kiddos don't like it either, but that was what this pattern called for - an attached tule petticoat. Well, I decided to make mine with muslin fabric and gather the crap out of the thing and do two layers (piecing, sewing, hemming and gathering took a combined 5 hours of work. Yikes!) And I wanted the petticoat separate so that she could wear it underother dresses. So, I did not stitch it to the dress, put some elastic in the waiste and then gave her attached elastic "suspenders" since the underskirt was just plain too heavy to keep on without the extra support.

After that, i began work on the actual dress. The original pattern didn't have a front swoop (drape) or bustle at all so I needed to draft my own. The front swoop was easy enough and I basted it to the top of the pleated skirt, pleating the sides as I went along. The bustle was a little more complicated. It needed height which it couldn't get if I put it below the back zipper so I made it an attachable one with a velcro edged belt that could go on over the zipper and be removed easily. The Jane dress had a dark colored yellow belt anyway, so this totally fit the bill.



The sleeves I needed to be longer than the pattern called for, so I just added an extra 4 inches and made sure the bottom was reversable in case my daughter wanted the "rolled up" look that Jane sports frequently.



The collar and necktie, I drafted myself and made them completely removable for comfort sake (my kiddo doesn't like constricting clothing like turtle necks or anything). It wasn't too hard - had to make the collar a few times, but it's so small that it didn't take very long.



And I think that's about it!  Here's one last picture so you can see the width and pouf of the dress (I think I used a combined total of 10 yards of fabric for it):



Thanks for having a look!!
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Another Hunger Games Hanging Tree Hoop! on: August 02, 2012 04:11:52 PM
Hi there all! Well, I did it again. I've crafted another button hoop. It's a bit smaller than the first one, but still tons of detail. I also used thicker strands of glow in the dark thread for the words. Hope you like it!!

 





Thanks for taking a peek!
