1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / fixing a broken piece? on: August 22, 2011 07:12:43 AM
Before my aunt passed away from breast cancer, she turned to sculpting as a type of therapy. She had never used polymer clays before and in a matter of months was creating some truly amazing works of art. I was lucky enough to receive one, and it means a great deal to me. Unfortunately, when I moved into my apartment, a small piece broke in half. I'm assuming this can be repaired, but I know nothing about clay and I don't want to use the wrong glue and ruin it. It's about 10 years old, if that makes a difference.

Thank you!!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / 1960's mod dress pattern? on: August 20, 2006 07:07:22 PM
Hi there! I need your help! This is a bit long, but please read it! Please!

I'm going to be in a show (in January-ish) called "Leader of the Pack" which is about the life of Ellie Greenwich, a singer/songwritter, and her husband Jeff Berry, a songwritter as well, during the 1960's. It has lots of fun songs like "Chapel Of Love", "Leader of the Pack", "Do Wah Diddy", you get the idea. I'm going to be one of the back-up singers/dancers.

While the show isn't going to open until January, the theater I work at is having a Gala to introduce the new season (which "Leader of the Pack" is in.) This Gala is the 2nd and 3rd weekend in September. While we will be in costumes, it will basically be what-ever we all can throw together. What I want to do is this: make a 60's dress I can wear that I can also dance in AND to show the director what I can do (sewing and design-wise) and *hopefully* get to be the costume designer for the show!

I can sew, follow patterns, and whatnot, but I'm not so good at drafting my own (even easy ones) which is why I would need a pattern.

What I need help on is finding a good pattern or tutorial. Hopefully free or cheap, but I'd be willing to spend a little money if it's a good pattern.  I've been scouring craftster and have been looking at Simplicity patterns. But the thing is, I can't buy things online. So I need a free website or a pattern I can buy at JoAnn's. I'm also willing to do a swap with someone if they had any vintage patterns they could copy and send me.

I'm specifically looking for a dress a la Twiggy. Short, bold, and I'd like personally like sleeveless, but that's not nessesary. These are dresses I like:

Ideas! Please!

3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Quidditch Shirt - Image heavy (First Post) on: May 15, 2006 01:00:07 PM
I made this as a last minute Halloween costume two years ago. I'm a sub at an elementary school and I worked on Halloween - therefore needed a kid-friendly costume... and besides, Quidditch and the Weasley's are pretty darn cool.
