4511  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: Pink & Black hand smocked boutique looking shirt & Capris on: March 29, 2008 10:54:09 AM
That turned out really well.  I love the pattern you ending up using for the picture smocking.

Great Job, although all this smocking that has been recently jumping up on the boards makes me feel guilty for not having done any in a while.

Everything looks great.  I love your cake and dress.  I also got married in a red dress, so I'm glad I'm not the only one...

What a great idea for an Easter basket.  Your eye for detail is incredable. 
4518  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Star Trek Swap Gallery on: March 20, 2008 08:31:36 PM
Hey everyone, bet you all thought this swap was dead... but like so many examples from star trek it has come back to life... for only good reasons of course... I finally got a package (and an awesome package at that)  After 1 flaker and 1 angel flaker our fearless organizer--nirauan--took on the challenge and boldly went where none in this swap had gone before, and sent me a package.  So without further ado, here are the goods (sorry my crappy photos don't do the wonderful items justice but I must prepare for an 8 hour car trip first thing in the morning so sadly these will have to do, oh how I long for a transporter). 

First Nirauan sent me a Trekkie wash cloth (it's super nice, so nice in fact my husband wants more)



Next Nirauan answered my prayers for making my school work more interesting and she sent me not 1, not 2, but 4 star trek book marks for use in both enemy and ally readings...





(I just love all the awesome pictures on them, and they are double sided so I won't get bored.)

She also sent an awesome stenciled t-shirt, I can't wait till it's alittle warmer here so i can wear it and show it off. 





And finally my favourite (I really don't like picking favourites, but i think everything else understands...) Nirauan made me an incredible Klingon Messanger Bag.  I love it and am so excited to use it.  It really is incredable, sadly my picture doesn't do it justice (I had a better one but couldn't get it to load  Sad (if I can get it to work on Monday when I'm back home I'll try again))

 

Thanks so much Nirauan.  You were a great swap angel, I love everything and really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this. 
Thanks again.   




   
4519  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Bright Red with Embarassment, but.. how do you follow a pattern???? on: March 19, 2008 01:29:06 PM
Penlowe, I am in awe of your scissor collection. 

As for following a pattern, the best piece of advice I can give is to find a laid back experienced sewer to walk you through it.  There are a lot of much easier ways of constructing patterns out there than what's included with a pattern.  Also my Mom taught me how to save a tonne of fabric when cutting out most patterns (very handy).  I realise this advice doesn't always help, but my Mom's shortcut sewing method has done me more good than trying to exactly follow patterns ever has...

Good luck, and don't worry I promise that if it doesn't turn out as planned it can always be transformed into something else.
4520  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to make this wall organizer on: March 19, 2008 01:23:53 PM
Wow all these ideas are great, I think it may have inspired me to make one... someday. 

One thought on framing, one option other than a frame would be to mount the tiles on a slightly larger board so that they are nicely held together.  This would probably end up cheaper than a frame, and it looks really good (my cousin did a few paintings that were individual tiles mounted on a board and it looks really good).  You could even paint the board in a coordinating colour. 

One bit of advice before you make one for your daughter.  Ask what exactly she likes about the PB Board, and even what she doesn't like since you can customize.  Also figure out if she really wants it to be 16 square feet which is huge.  Unless she really wants it that big I think the 6" by 6" squares would be a way better size than the foot ones. 

Good luck.
