1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Shower Curtain Mermaid on: November 01, 2008 05:43:02 PM
The costume shop I work at was in a local parade this summer.    After making 14 mermaid costumes for the shop I decided I needed one for myself.  Being incredibly cheap I could not bring myself to by any fabric that I liked at the fabric stores (EXPENSIVE!!).  I almost gave up until I happened across this amazing shimmery blue/green shower curtain at goodwill.  Voila! Shower curtain mermaid.



The blue of the shell bra and tail is the shower curtain.  I made the top using scraps of shimmery gold and nude stretch that were in my scrap bag.  The pattern is Simplicity 4043.  It would have been a very simple project but I decided to piece it together and give it some fun shapes and decoration so that took me forever.  I made shells and flowers (sea flowers?) and some fingerless gloves to add to the costume.  I also spent a good couple of hours attaching sequins and rhinestones with E6000.  My boyfriend thought I was crazy but it turned out awesome.  Too bad I was the only one that showed up in costume at the Halloween party.  boo.




2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Presents for you Dad on: November 17, 2006 08:11:45 AM
My father is extremely difficult to find presents for.  He is very outdoorsy and a real "man's man" if you know what I mean.  Anyway, I'm a college student and on an extremely tight budet so I would like to craft all of my Christmas presents this year but I can't think of anything to make him that he won't think is too girly.  Please help!
