Hi!  So i'm not really sure if this goes here but....look what I made.

I know it's not the best image.  But it is a button...I took a penny and drilled some holes in it to make a button.  I'm going to make some more so I can make a Change purse. hehe. 
Let me know what you think.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / I need some help....please... on: June 12, 2007 04:21:52 PM
Hi!  This coming weekend I have to go to a family reunion on Cape Cod.  Here is the problem, I'm already going to be the poor girl whose just had a miscarriage, the fat one, and the one who nobody knows because the last time I saw any of these people, other then my mom was when I was 5.  I'm 25 now.  And yes, thanks to my grandmother everyone will know my personal history. 
I work on a farm.  I don't have any nice clothing that fits me. 
What can I make fast that will look ok.
Here are my measurments. 
55,53,55  I'm a giant tube. 
The good news...I can sew.
Thanks for any advice.

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / Dragon Note Cards on: June 05, 2007 07:47:24 PM
Hi! Check out these note cards that I printed using the mod podge technique.  I would love some feedback.  I'm not sure if i'm using the right kind of material.  I'm still very new to this, it's my first project.  I bought some sheer curtain fabric at walmart and am using an embroidery hoop to stretch it. 
What do you think? 

The cards are all different colors.  I swirled the paint to make it a sort of tie dye effect.
Thanks for looking,
Shawna

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / I made a dress. on: April 17, 2007 08:44:55 PM
Hi all,
Well i got bored the other night and decided to tackle the infinite dress.  And this is how it turned out. Please excuse the bad pictures, i know i'm tugging on the dress in one and my eyes are closed.  and no i'm not drunk or stoned, i don't do those things, it was just really late at night after i finished the dress and i was a little asleep. 
This is me putting the dress on, still have issues getting it around my waist the right way. 

Please keep in mind that i am pregnant. (not that i have really gained any weight yet, it just makes me feel my fatness is more justified.)  Wink

Here is a picture of the top part.  I think it came out ok. 

And this is a picture of me not fiddling with the dress. hehe. 

also realise that I am never wearing this dress in public, or at least not without a tank top or bathing suit under it.  Yes i am self concious, but oh well. 
Tell me what you think.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Duct Tape Double (now with pictures!!!) on: February 12, 2007 02:32:30 PM
Hey all,
Guess what I didn't last night.  I made a duct tape dress form.  Actually i stood around and my husband made a duct tape dress form.  It was pretty fun.  I definately suggest making it infront of the TV while watching a movie or something because otherwise you will be bored.  It too 2 hours to make.   It is really easy. and now here are the pictures.  Remeber i warned you about my lumps and bumps.

this is me striking a pose.  you will notice the loveliness of my bathroom.  I had wanted to see myself in the mirror and my husband followed me with the camara.

this is the back view.  notice that the duct tape is not yet complete.  i just really had to move, it had been an hour and a half of standing still and i was going crazy.  

this lovely image highlights the sleeve that i pulled over my head after i realized my hair was getting taped.  not that my hair is very long to begin with but still.  I need all i have. Hehe.
1. Basically you just find 2 old tee-shirts that are nice a tight on you, you don't want any weird wrinkles.  Make sure you are wearing old undies, my husband put a hole in mine as he was cutting me out of the thing.  take 1 tee and cut it right under the arms, you wear this one like a skirt.  Wearing a bra (or not depending on how you usually dress) put the other tee shirt on and pull it down oter your new skirt.  
2.  Get like 3 or 4 rolls of duct tape.  Mine took 3 and I am a size 24 ish.  have your helper start taping you up making sure that the duct tape is smooth.  use shorter pieces to go over curves, boobs, etc.  You should also rip you strips in half for the curvy areas.  
3. Continue on until you have about 3 layers all over.  
4.  Have your helper carefully cut you out of your duct tape suit by making a cut up the back.  the duct tape suit will be very flexable right now, don't worry it will firm up as you stuff it.
5.  close up the back slice with duct tape.  tape over the neck opening and both arm openings.  flip your double over and stuff it with lots of stuffing.  I bought a 10 lb. box of stuffing and it took nearly all of it.  
6.  When you have your double stuffed you can tape over the bottom end or if you are feeling really fancy you can trace the opening on cardboard and make a cardboard plug and tape that on.  
7.  I just put another tee shirt on my double for now.  or you can sew a special covering for it to wear so you can pin things on it.


I fully plan to make another one out of paper machet and a garbage bag soon.  I think it might not colapse as much as i'm trying to stuff it, etc.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / wild ginger on: March 08, 2006 07:46:30 PM
I am a very curvy girl.  Sz. 18-24 and have most of my weight around the middle.  Talkin' def. apple here.  I'm wondering if there is anyone out there who has used the wild ginger software for this body type/mishmash?  I don't want to spend $200 for the womens package and have it be no better then what i can do on my own from $1.99 patterns. 
Thanks,
Shawna
