1  Flame Princess in Halloween Costumes by marypoppins on: November 02, 2012 10:36:17 AM
My daughter has fallen in love with Adventure Time.  She was allowed to dress up for work and the first thing she thought of doing was the Flame Princess.  






She had to do modifications to the dress to allow her to move freely at work.  She is a server at a dine-in movie theater.  This requires a lot of bending and crouching.  A long skirt would not of worked.  She also did her own hair and make-up.

The last photo is a action shot with the Bubblegum Princess and Finn.

(If someone can help me get the pictures to actually show up that would be great!)

2  Birthday Monster in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by marypoppins on: May 29, 2012 11:02:37 AM
My daughter designed this monster from the machine embroidery designs I got from Urban Threads.  She didn't realized that I was going to make it for her for her birthday! 

Just goes to show that you are never too old for a stuffed monster!

3  Don't Blink in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by marypoppins on: April 30, 2012 11:25:15 AM
I have been a long-time Dr Who fan and have recently gotten my sweetie hooked.  He loves the Weeping Angels so I decided to make an apron for him (he is a chef).


I combined an applique TARDIS pattern with some angel wings.

4  Lime Green/Owl Laptop Case in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by marypoppins on: December 16, 2007 01:42:26 PM
My daughter just bought a laptop and she was looking for a cool case to carry it around in.  Of course, when you have a specific idea you cannot find anything that even remotely resembles it.  All she could find were dull boring black ordinary cases.  That would just not do! 

I decided to make her one as a Christmas present.  Now...her favorite color is green and she loves owls.  So I came up with this:
     



I still need to put a few finishing touches.  I want to put eyes on the owl but I haven't found just the right buttons yet.  But I wanted to go ahead and post it here before I wrapped it up to put under the tree.

5  Re: Mini Top Hat??? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by marypoppins on: January 31, 2007 10:50:06 AM
My daughter has made some mini-top hats using craft foam.





I could probably get her to write out a tute but I know she didn't use a pattern.  She just winged it.

6  I am making the Duchess' hat from Alice in Wonderland -UPDATED WITH PIX in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by marypoppins on: August 29, 2005 12:05:42 PM
Our high school theater is putting on Alice in Wonderland as our children's show.  I have been assigned to make the Duchess' hat.  You know the one...big, huge, puffy, with veiling. 
Here is an example:

Anyone have any suggestions on what would be best to use to make it stand up and out?

UPDATE:
The show was a big success!!  I thought you would like to see some pictures of my final creation.
I ended up using glue to stiffen the inside of the hat.  Then I used heavy gauge floral wire to give it some support.  After sewing the rolls around the top and the bottom, I added a final layer of felt with stuffing underneath to pad it out.  Final touches were the feather boa and the veil.

7  Goosebumps Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by marypoppins on: May 23, 2005 03:09:00 PM
Thanks to several postings on Craftster, we were inspired  Shocked

We found the perfect sheets...

and created the perfect dress

For school, she has to wear a jacket or something over it because of the dress code.  This is what she wore for the first day of school this year.  First person she saw was her principal who just looked at her and shook his head.  After all of our run-ins with him the year before, he has now gotten used to her.  The most frequent comment she gets from the guys is "Hey, I used to have (still have!) sheets just like that!"

9  Stylish Top Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by marypoppins on: May 23, 2005 11:15:21 AM
Just wanted to show off my daughter's newest creation...a Stylish Top Hat!!



She has been wanting one of her very own and when she found out how much a full sized one would cost, she decided to make her own.  With all the compliments she has been receiving on it, she is wondering if she could make and sell these to earn some money. 

What do you think?  How much would you pay for a custom made miniature top hat?  The base of the hat is approximately 6" and it stands about 7" high.
