1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Panda Hood on: October 10, 2011 10:46:11 AM
I saw a girl last week with an awesome panda hood from Spirithoods.com and had to make one. My dear friend Caroline has a birthday on Halloween, and has just about everything panda. I'm going to have to make more because it turned out so cute. I used some ideas from http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387511.0 using an hobby knife helped a bit with the mess. I added darts to the top back of the hood and changed the shape a bit. The ears were hand stitched on which was probably the hardest part.
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Coraline and Mr. T on: October 27, 2009 05:56:11 PM
Went to a costume party this weekend. I was Coraline and DH was Mr. T

Edited... I made my own wig, dyed a lab coat yellow, and even painted some black rubber boots yellow.

Here is DH, he is trying to look mean. I made his wig, feather earrings, and painted some MardiGras beads gold.

Here are a few of the partygoers, my friend was a one night stand.  I thought it was pretty cute.
3  FIBER ARTS / Dyeing: Completed Projects / Tie Dye Shirts, Two attempts at Mandalas on: February 22, 2009 10:41:54 AM
I've had a tye-dye kit since high school! I finally decided to try it out. I'm somewhat pleased with the results. The colors are ultra bright. I have more dye left (it lasts two weeks), so I will be doing some more.
This first one has the star pattern on both sides. If I did it again, I would put some dye between folds.

This one was dyed only on the front. 

I intended this one to be a "V" I think it looks more like a rainbow.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Corduroy skirt with tree applique (image fatty) on: March 03, 2008 01:49:09 PM
Hello all! I've been dreaming of this one for a while now. I finally got off my butt this weekend, however, and started it. Once I started I couldn't stop. DH helped quite a bit with design suggestions. Originally I was going to do multicolored stars on the front panel, but has said it didn't look right, suggested I use a tree sketch I had been working on, and helped me perfect that design. (Drawing is not my forte) I still need to hem, but it is more complete than I ever thought. Questions, comments, and criticisms welcome.




5  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Rotary cutting tips? on: December 31, 2007 10:39:08 AM
Hello all! I have a rotary cutter and have used it sporatically to make patchy purses, pants, tops, etc. Recently I decided to use up some of my corduroy stash to make a quilt. However, I'm not sure I use my rotary cutter to its best benefit. I was wondering if there are any tips or tutorials on using rotary cutters with large fabric pieces to cut many equal sized blocks. I have trouble getting my corners square, and I worry about wasting fabric. Also, do you need to replace your mat occasionally? Mine has many lines in it where I have cut many times. ANy advice or linkage would be helpful. 
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mock Cable Hat on: October 17, 2007 04:42:42 PM
I made this one for my Hubby over the summer. The pattern is from Lorna's Laces and so is the yarn. Expensive but soft and pretty colors.
