I had a bunch of AOL cds that I used in my dorm. I got some blue stuff, some tape, etc, and I got atop my bunk bed (oh, college dorms) and I attached them all to the ceiling. I got the most coverage by laying out the first row, then the second row was taped up half a cd in, so that the cds formed rows on diagonals across my ceiling. It looked awesome, especially when laying on the bed.
However... 1. Guys think a cheap mirror over your bed is great, which has it's own problems 2. I never could find something strong enough to keep them up there that wouldn't ruin the paint on the dorm ceiling. Often, I would wake up and find them a few on me. I had about 70 up there, and I think each one fell down at least once, so I was forever putting them back up there, and towards the end of the year, I got tired and just let them fall, which meant I had ugly blue and tape staring at me.
I liked it for sophomore year, but at the end, when I was cleaning out my room, I tossed them all. I just couldn't take it anymore.
That's lovely! I really like the color, as well, as it compliments your hair.
How much bigger was the shirt when it was the "ugly baggy tank"? The tails in the back seem really long, so it seems the first shirt must have been huge- unless, and maybe you said this, but I don't think you described it this way, you did the back of the shirt with zig-zag cuts... but then, the ties look even, so I must admit, I am confused.
I always wondered: when you made your dolls, what did you stuff them with? I tend to be able to see through my stitches, so I would think white cotton stuffing wouldn't work. Do you stuff it with yarn, or do you make your stitches so tight no one can see through them?
