1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Baby's box pleat summer dress - no pink here on: August 24, 2007 11:19:56 PM
I'm more a knitter than a sewer, so I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  It was a New Look pattern that I modified by adding buttons instead of a zipper and shorting the skirt by a good 4".  The fabric is 100% cotton offcut I scored for $5, and there's enough left to make another dress  in the next size up.

Look at my baldy spot!


Boy is it hard to take a clothing picture on a baby who can't sit up by herself yet.  It is too big for her right now, but that works well because it's still winter here.  It fits nicely over a white skivvy and pants, and she'll grow into it for summer I hope.
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / our handmade cake topper keepsake (img heavy) on: August 24, 2007 09:47:06 PM
My first completed crafty posting!

I'm so proud of this.  I made it for our wedding.  About 7" tall.  It was on display on the guestbook table next to the cake, and people kept picking it up and putting it on top of the top tier of the cake (yes we have very strange friends and family who think it is okay to mess with a wedding cake before it is cut).  It was inspired by a cake topper in a 2006 Martha Stewart Weddings magazine.

The height difference is about the same as between us in real life.  I made the bride and groom out of beige pipecleaners and wooden beads for their heads.  Acrylic paint for the faces and hair.  Velvet ribbon for the groom's suit and organza ribbon for the bride's dress.  They are mounted onto a piece of polystyrene, which I covered with some dyed merino roving I had lying around.  Glass beads and scrap-booking trim for the bride's jewellery.  I bought the top hat at a craft store.  It looks better than the picture, I think the flash washed out the velvetiness of it.
