261  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Felt in the wash? on: February 19, 2012 07:05:19 AM
Felt is going to do horrible things when you wash it, even at 40 degrees, just with the frequency of washing. T shirt fabric doesnt fray and will stand up to being laundered, so why don't you repurpose old shirts, maybe even hit the charity shops for cute, cheap character shirts?

Possibly not too practical, but I don't care. I'd happily allow them both to come and live with me and my collection of monsters. So long as that candy alien didn't touch my jellybeans, we'd get along just fine. I love the idea of using the strickliesel with wire to make bendable cord. Genius!

I want them ALL! I also want to be able to get my eyeliner to look like yours.

Sweet baby jesus and the orphans... MAKE ME ONE! This is fabulous. I'm such a big fan of costume jewellery, particularly big, unusual statement pieces like this. Just glorious.
265  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Dinosaur of Love. on: February 18, 2012 10:31:42 AM
My other half is my rawr. He may be my Viking, but we have entire conversations in Dinosaur. Given my recent obsession with making plushies, I clearly had to make a Rawrosaurus for Valentine's Day. The stamp was made for me by my Viking when we were working at camp. No reason other than because he could, which is quite frankly the best reason for receiving gifts. Everything came from my stash which is awesome, as it left more in the budget for delicious foods for filling my tummy. Om noms...





I'm really happy with how he turned out, even if his spine spikey plate things didn't work out entirely perfectly. He's now living on the bookshelf next to our new bed, foraging among the pages of swedish fairytales and random histories...
As always, c+c gratefully received.

If you click your heels together three times, do you mysteriously find yourself in Kansas?
These are quite frankly the shizzle. I feel your wide-feet-cute-shoes pain. I've basically reached the conclusion that no shoe will ever fit me properly...

Try this for size. Maybe make a toile from muslin or thrifted sheets and then you can play around and change the empire waist into a natural waistline, and make the straps a little wider. Hope it helps!

I was hunting for something else and stumbled across this. I think it might be everything you need.

This is beautiful. Is it steel boned? I love that the lacing is "right", so many people make beautiful corsets and then cheat themselves out of something outstanding by not putting in enough eyelets so the lacing ends up too spaced out. Does it have a modesty panel too?
I need friends like you who make beautiful things like this.... I must admit I do occasionally stalk your projects because your level of craftsmanship is outstanding, and the historical costuming is right up my alley.
270  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Plus Swimming Suit Problems- Help! on: February 12, 2012 06:03:34 AM
Ok, hear me out here. Have you looked at suits designed for post-surgery mastectomy patients? I've never seen one up close but I feel like they might be able to accommodate your proportions. I have no idea who realistic that idea is, but it may be worth considering. Because let's be honest, anything is better than an oversized shirt and shorts.... Good luck with your mission!
