1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / what to make with........ on: November 01, 2006 11:47:47 PM
Hoping someone can help me out:

I bought a TON of cute, cheap fabric from Fabricland when one of their locations was closing. The problem is, I'm a novice sewer and I'm not sure what to make with the kinds of fabric that I bought  Undecided


I have a bunch of different prints in this fabric...semi-sheer, thin...stuff? hahaha.

And also this houndstooth:

So, any suggestions/links for simple projects? I'm thinking skirts and dresses <3
Thanks guys!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you!! I just did it and I'm pretty much in love with it...

also, thanks for the comments on my costume!  Wink hehe. Today I was out shopping and went into my usual right-before-halloween panic..tried on a zillion different costumes and *still* ended up with just my homemade one. What a silly girl....

"one size fits all" costumes SUCK.

Wow, it's been a while since I've done any crafting! So I thouroughly enjoyed working on my Halloween costume.


Here I am, modelling my Mother Nature ensemble...I made the whole thing today, so there was definitely no time to sew. Instead, I borrowed my sister's nightgown  Grin

Me, wearing my crown and very satisfied with the days work!:


I'm still working on a few things...Going to get some "viney stuff" and make wrist cuffs instead of bracelets. Should I do some kind of painting/drawing on my arms, or is that too much?? What about footwear? And I'm also looking for a clever way to attach some kind of "pet", preferably a squirrel.

Any advice or comments appreciated!!!

Very nice...I had to giggle when I read your doily comment, I completely agree....my mom used to crochet, or do tatting or something, and I would always find these little flowers and things lying around.  Tongue
