Jadegreen, I love the rose and chest piece!  The rose is just gorgous and the I feel loved is just too cute!

24  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! on: December 07, 2007 01:08:49 AM
I'm turning 18 in a month and I've been mulling over some potential tattoos, though if I don't ABSOLUTELY think it will have meaning for me for the rest of my life I don't want to get it. Here's what I've come up with:

-A heart on my love handles along with some body-positive text (I'm recovering from an ED, and though I hope it won't be totally relevant to the rest of my life, I do want to be able to look at those curves and remember to love them)
-The word "curvy" or "beautiful" or "beautiful girl/woman" in my own handwriting so that I remembered my descision at 17 to love myself in spite of my imperfections
-something curvy-positive: voluptuous, sensuous, curvy, etc, any good word ideas?
-Something anti-ED. the best ED tattoo I ever saw was a scale being smashed to bits by a hammer with the latin words for "Thus always to tyrants." I think that's too intense for me but I do want something body positive as long as it's going on my body.
-The word "strength" in some cool script/language/whatever so that I can remember always to have it in any situation no matter what.

Opinions? Ideas, images?

Just throwing it out there, but things you feel really strongly toward when yer 17 you may not feel in about 6 months.  If you want something that makes you feel strong why not something that encompasses yer entire being, not just the part that got over an Eating Disorder.  Why not something that moves yer mind, body and spirit, something you live for, or even what yer actual perception of beauty is, or something that tantilizes like:

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"
"Beauty must be defined as what we are, or else the concept itself is our enemy"

Or you could totally skew it and have a rat tattoed on you and tell everyone even though its a rancid, vile ugly creature its beautiful in its own ways and without it we wouldn't have the larger creatures that others seem to find so beguiling.

Or if you did want something pertaining to ED why not like an hourglass.  Yer recovery took time and patience which you endured and it gives you the happy curves that you now enjoy?

Just a thought.

I think yer prices are really good as is.  Maybe add a few dollars for the embroidered ones?  You just gotta get bigger so I can buy some!

The hem is kinda wonky cos I can't iron the fabric (its upholstery fabric and when I attempted to iron it it just turned brown...). 

Cool fabric!  Love your skirt and have a suggestion.  Try using a pressing cloth and lower temperature to iron the fabric.  I usually dampen my pressing cloth to make sure that the fabric doesn't get too hot.  If I see steam, that is my cue to move the iron.  Hope that helps!
Happy sewing!


I'll try that!  Thank you!  It just looks so bad with a bubbly hem...

And thanks for the compliments guys.  I love it and can't wait to wear it out.

When I saw this fabric I fell in love and had no idea what I was gonna do with it.  So I bought a couple yards (and plan on buying a LOT more cos I do Love it) and made this sweet circle skirt.

The hem is kinda wonky cos I cant iron the fabric (its upholstery fabric and when I attempted to iron it it just turned brown...).  Its got a side zipper that is electric blue to match the blue of the skirt and has an extended tab reaching to the front where its held down with a skull button.

The button and the true picture of the colors...



The full thing



And more of the top to show tab.
