31  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: make a top more fitted? on: March 28, 2011 05:25:51 PM
I personally would keep the gathers. I looked and thought about having just a pleat above the boobs might make it too fitted. Pleats on larger girls isn't bad it just makes everything in the bust area tighter and a little rough to put on/take off. My suggestion is start larger and then form fit in from there.

I would try a leather shoe/bag repair place. They are normally really cool about giving away stuff they can't use or selling it at a low price.
33  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / Goodwill Warehouse on: March 28, 2011 05:14:59 PM
I know that people have of course mentioned Goodwill stores and shopgoodwill.com but a lot of people don't know they live near a Goodwill Warehouse or can find books through http://www.goodwillbooks.com

Goodwillbooks has a ton of books that a reading nerd like me swoons over. Not to mention their quilting section of books is HUGE

But my personal favorite place is the Goodwill Warehouse. It's the place where almost all of the bits and pieces that didn't sell at the other goodwill's along with some newer stuff is sold. Usually its as warehouse type building with a bunch of open bins that you can sort through. On my recent trip with my roommate I got an amazing condition sewing chair, a commodore 64 screen, a jewelry shelf, a stash of vintage patterns, several amazing books, a lamp, artwork, an R2D2 statue and some small knickknacks for about $45.

They go by weight in pounds and they usually take furniture and TVs by item (my sewing chair cost me about $3). If you have a guy that hates going to thrift stores he might actually like this place (my roomie is proof) and if all else fails they normally have a Goodwill Bytes computer store near by, send him over there.

I love goodwill and I have even gotten my family to start loving it too!

I've been using shopgoodwill forever and a day now. I have gotten sooooo much awesome stuff (right now I'm bidding on 3 normally expensive bikes in my area and winning). They do have crazy shipping rates but that's because they cant set up a business account with the shippers and make it one flat rate. I just got a giant box of craft stuff and I paid almost the same amount of shipping as what I bid for the darn things!

MMMM... I think I'm going to have to make these after I make my Irish Car Bomb cupcakes (I had to get Bailey's for that lol).

My mom and I were laughing about the states fighting over whoopie pies a couple of weeks ago.

I just know that everyone in my house is going to love em!
