 ^_^ Very very nice!
And so simple!
I hope to see some more of your crafty clothing in the near future! ^_^
 For the slit on the side of the (beautiful!) yellow skirt, I think it would be best to simply cut up the desired side to the wanted height then fold in about 1/4 of an inch (more or less if you wish) and sew, so it looks clean'n'tidy and just so it doesn't fray.

Hopefully that made some sense O.o
I'm more of a "Show-to-Teach" type of person ^_^;
Good luck!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Swappers! My new Shirt Idea! on: June 14, 2004 04:21:22 PM
 Swappers!
That's what I named this idea...
Well, onwards to my explaination!

 I wanted to stencil some funny 'saying' or quote on my T-Shirt but I didn't want it to be a 'forever' type of thing. So I decided on making label type things.
It's just two pieces of fabric sewn and then the saying it stenciled on or (if your like me) drawn on with Crayola Fabric Markers.
It just looks like this (nice and simple):

It's really simple! And fun ^_^
After the label is done you just pin it on the back or front with safty pins!

Of course you'll have to be more color coordinated than me  Roll Eyes

 ^_^ that's fine, every one make mistakes every so often...
Oh, the markers are great!
I Scribbled all over my jeans and the marks are still there even after washing, and I didn't even iron it like the Crayola box said.
Great stuff!  Grin
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Broken Watch Fixed and Made Better! :) on: June 14, 2004 03:48:12 PM
 Hi!
I bought this nice watch one day. It lasted a long time about 3 years before it started to rip along the edges Undecided
So at the beginning of May it just all fell off my wrist while I was sewing  Cry
Here's what the peices look like:

Now this one is my mini-bag. As you'll see it holds one pair of sunglasses and one hair clip Smiley

 I luvers them all!

Very nice, very luverly! ^_^
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: another pleated skirt. nice one though! :) on: June 11, 2004 03:55:30 PM
Very nice! I luvers the blueness ^_^
I have this super old book (1970s or something) and it says that there are 'Pleaters' that can do it... but other than that I'm not sure what else would keep pleats .... as pleats.
And I'm not sure where you'd find a 'Pleater' O.o
 ^^; I know I didn't help, but I just like posting Tongue hehe

'... Whiskers are extremely sensitive as they are closely connected to the nervous system. Any damage to his whiskers will cause your cat discomfort, and he may become confused or disoriented. DON'T ever trim his whiskers, and DON'T ever wash them, he will keep them clean himself....'
'... Cats also have a number of reinforced hairs similar to whiskers on other parts of their bodies: over the eyes, on the chin and at the back of the legs....'

 Aren't cats cool? ^_^
Well I know that (most) cat's don't like getting covered by clothing or anything else, but some odd ones (or trained cats) don't mind and seem to love it. My cat being an odd one.
I'm sure cats are smart enough to show to their owners how they feel about clothing.... I know my other cat did Tongue
All in all, I suppose it's up to the cat. I mean if you brought a sphinx kitty to a colder place they might need some clothing to keep them warm. Poor poor naked kitties ^_^;

My cats like to be dressed up, too. Trinity loves anything really girly. She even let me put the colored "no scratch" things on her with no fighting and Mark loves to wear hats. My husband is Air Force and Mark even has a USAF jacket that he wears.  Roll Eyes

 Oh that sounds so cute, I'd love to see some pictures of them dressed up  Grin

Well I tried making a sort of crown out of wire, foam and fabric but it didn't turn to well  Undecided
it just flopped down around her neck, lol
