This evening I decided that I had the urge, after months and months, to sew. So, I set out to my room and created this... thing. Blazer? Jacket? Anywho, the material is black brocade with turquoise and brown embroideries. I also used a pattern, though the make and number escape me at the moment. Though, if anyone wants to know, I'll run and find out.
On to the pictures!
Sorry for the lousy webcam shots, I was too lazy to take out my real camera.
So, I was thinking of wearing this blazer to a work holiday party, with something underneath. Thoughts?
I made this dress for Homecoming last month. I just adore it!
Oh, about the title, people kept on saying to me the whole night, "You look like you just stepped out of a black and white movie!" It's a great comment, since that was the look I was going for, but it gets old after, oh, about 40 times.
Anyway, on to the pictures!
People said it looked great, but then again, they don't sew. If I could get some comments from some Craftster gods/goddesses, it would be fantastic!
Has anyone made Vogue 2878? I'm thinking of making it as my homecoming dress. I will probably make it in teal, but more of a blue-teal, not a green-teal. What is the best material to make it out of? At my Joanns and Hancocks, they don't have any formalwear fabric in the teal I want. Any places you can think of?
My date is going to wear a black suit with white pinstripes and a teal screenprinted tee instead of a shirt an tie. He will wear a black belt and shoes. Do you think this would be good with this dress?
I have a lovely beaded clutch to go with this, but there is not much teal in it. It has a bunch of o;ther colours, though. The background is white, so would I do white shoes or coloured ones?
I'm going to be doing face painting at a school fair soon, but I'm not quite sure what to do. I don't want to paint their whole face, but maybe just a little something on the cheek or hand. I'm going to be using watercolor pencils - they dry faster.
So far I have come up with: Baseball football basketball butterfly flower rainbow paw print stars hearts
Is anyone here a face painter, have tricks, tips, or photos of what to do? The designs can't be too complicated; it's my first time doing this outside of the home!
Hi all yall iron-on experts! A newbie to iron-ons needs some help!
I bought June Taylor paper for clothing labels. I know, Avery is best, but it was what my craft store had. There is a red line on one side of the paper and nothing on the other. My printer prints face-up. What side do I print on?
I'm assuming the blank side, but I just want to make sure!
My whole cast and I want to make a gift to our directors of James and the Giant Peach (our third and final performance is at the end of April). The problem is, we have not a clue what to do! I was thinking of flower pens, but it seems very Martha-ish. There are over 10 of us, so it can't be too expensive, and all of us would like to do something (maybe something with multiple parts to it?). We would like it to do something with James and the Giant Peach.
