I like this. The looser fit is very flattering and the lame makes it look beautifully flowing.

I'd be interested, depending on my life at the time.

Incredible! I love them and you have the minion vibe soooo well.

Another option might be to deliberately fray the edges.

As far as cutting is concerned, if you can get the longest straight edge you can find (I use a 1.5 metre spirit level), things will go easier, also a long, STURDY table. Could you borrow a school hall or a village hall for an evening? They've usually got something that would work. Even if you have to move the straight edge and the cutting mat, being able to keep the fabric flat & straight will help. Of course, if it's not your table, you will have to be extra careful.

Any decoration could be stencilled or glued on. Double sided sticky tape if you have to. Spray glue is lovely and quick and can manage flimsy fabric. If you need to cut out shapes, perhaps a die cutter or something like a silhouette cutter might make things quicker.

I'd suggest making one of them much more sturdy than the rest, perhaps the happy couple might like to keep one to use in their home. It would probably need shortening, but otherwise should be ok.

I really have to make myself one of these. Thank you for the link and the prod. Yours is so pretty: it looks great.

They are also supposed to be slug deterrents. Sprinkle them around your vulnerable plants and the caffeine and the texture is supposed to put them off.

They are slightly acid, so consider where you're putting them.

They can go in the compost too, just spread 'em around abit  so there's no big lump. If you use the browns vs greens method, they count as browns.

What a gorgeous wee stamp. I love it. And it doesn't show that this is your first time carving in ages.

That looks brilliant! Is it welded together or glued?
20  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: Safe to bake shortbread in this painted mold? on: July 07, 2014 03:38:22 PM
I'd pop it in the oven, empty, bring it up to temperature and see if it smells bad or the paint changes colour. If neither happens then there is a higher chance that the paint is proper porcelain (food safe) paint.

Maybe someone else can think of the next test?
