OK, here's the link to marshall fields...but their picture is NOTHING like the dress.

And here's a (not terribly good) picture i took of the beading on the top (click to see it bigger)...


I'll take better pictures of it on me when i get the chance...it's practically impossible to get on and off (which is a feature my parents like, lol!)

Again, Note to anyone who didnt read my previous post...I DID NOT make this dress! ...but i love it like it was my own! Smiley

I might send Mel the mutant turtle instead (http://www.flickr.com/photos/andreasee/79211750/in/set-1640289/), she could probably use some cheering up.

i LOVE Mel, even with two tails!!  I'm sending a turtle...altho i didnt make him.

Meet Tortue:

(wow, i walked into my completely dark room - my sister's asleep in there - went to my bed and took this picture...perfectly centered...how extremely lucky!)

134  Duct Tape Dress for Little Sister! *pic heavyish* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Haylie on: March 05, 2006 06:09:51 PM
At my sister's middle school theyre having "duct tape day"  (How awesome is that?!) so we went out today and bought some lovely colored duck tape and spent a few hours to make this....

(click on pix to see bigger)

Step 1: Fabric Base...just cut out 4 pieces and taped it together



Step 2: Tape like crazy...top first, then sleeves (school dress code says shoulders must be covered!) then skirt.  (I've got a zipper up the back, but it's pulling out from in between in tape every time we zip it...i'll have to sew it in)



Step 3: Decoration!

135  Re: 'Relationship Journal' in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by Haylie on: February 28, 2006 08:20:40 PM
This isnt for a relationship journal, but i made this cover for a little book i made the boy for valentines day (click to see it bigger):



It's just a printed paper version of a picture i took of the two of us. I used scrapbooking tape to attach it to the fabric and then sewed it on in the corners (THROUGH the cardboard of the cover! Wasnt easy!)

Ok, so i'm planning on making my prom dress, been playing with the design for a while...but here's the thing...i hate patterns.  And i want asymmetrical boning in the bodice ....cant seem to find a picture online, so i sketched it in paint:



So here's the question: i'm no master seamstress..would i be completely insane to try to make something like this with no pattern? I have my (store-bought) prom dress from a few years ago that is similar in parts, so i can base parts off that.

I love these...i really have to put them on par with record bowls- they're easy,quick, fun and cool-looking!

138  Re: simply elegant marble necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Haylie on: December 31, 2005 11:38:23 AM
Yay, i found some silver wire & did another one...(while i was supposed to be cleaning my craft room! oops...hehe.)

I used a smaller marble, this time, which was harder. I think it'll make a very pretty necklace if i can just find a short enough chain!

To see the design....

To see the actual color of the wire...

Ok, only made one so far...not quite sure what i'll use it for, i think it may be too big for a necklace..i dont often wear big ones. I think it may be a good keychain...we'll see. (click on the picture if you wanna see it bigger)

140  Magnetic Close Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Haylie on: December 29, 2005 09:48:46 AM
In making my first journal, I suddenly decided to do one of those with close with a magnet. I'm ridiculously proud of it, considering how easy it was. (click on any picture to see it bigger)



The pages extend past the cover because i badly wanted to use that fabric but didnt have very much. I actually ended up being glad of that in the end, since i love how it turned out.

All I did to make it was use this wonderful coptic stitch tutorial:

http://personal.mem.bellsouth.net/d/r/drv1913/0204.html Now if you go there and scroll down a bit, you may notice where it says in big bold letters: "If this is your first time making a book, I would strongly advise against using any sort of thick paper such as watercolor paper or heavy drawing paper." Right, I definitely disregarded that and used cardstock. Which was, admittedly, must harder than the one i made with normal paper later...but cardstock was all i had at the moment. Plus i rather like how it turned out much thicker than one made with thin paper.

Anyway. To make the extra flap i simply cut another piece of cardboard the same size as the spine and then a piece for how big i wanted the flap. I glued magnet #1 to the front cover cardboard, glued the front cover, spine, back cover and other "spine" to the fabric (using tacky glue), then put the remain piece of cardboard on top of the front cover, put some tacky glue on the magnet, and let it stick so it was on top of the other magnet (I had some very strong magnets...) then glued the last piece to the fabric!


Glue a paper over the flap..
glue the front and back pages to the cardboard, and voila! Beautiful journal. I gave it to my cousin for Christmas, she loved it Cheesy
