Yeah, that was from me, sorry I forgot to put my username on the two I sent, I usually do, but I completely spaced on this, probably because I had a really bad cold and a concussion at the same time I sent the belts. Glad you like it!!

hawaiilove, I sent your belt out on Tuesday. It's probably nowhere near as detailed as the other you received because I've been super busy getting ready to move back to Australia next week.

HOLY BALOGNA!!!

I just received my first belt from Crafty_dame, and I can't believe how brilliant it is. THANK YOU SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOO OOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! It looks fantastic, at first I thought you'd cheated and gone out and bought a belt because it looks so professional looking. Your craftmanship astounds me.

I feel really guilty once again for the lack of time I was able to put into your belt in return. Please, please please forgive me and I hope you like the belt regardless. As I said to Hawaiilove, moving back to sydney took soooo much of my being. And I certainly don't have the sewing skills you do.

Thank you once again you're skills and swap partnering are superb.

Pictures soon.

i'm so glad you like it dorkabrain! i actually was kinda irritated by it, i thought i'd done a crappy job of sewing! but then i made it look messy on purpose, in hopes of covering it up!

i have pictures already uploaded, if you want me to post them.

Trust me, my sewing skills pale in comparison to your's. I'm new to the sewing machine, so again I apologise for my lack of sewing and the crappyness of the parts that were sewn.

Again, the belt is awesome, I'll be wearing it a plenty as it suits my style perfectly. Love the picture with all the little Amys in the snaps.

I think You and Mattbot have matching monroes.

Edit: thanks for posting pictures, I hadn't gotten round to taking any yet. I'll try to get one of me with it on in the next day or so if you like.

Monroes are hot. i want a tiny tiny one.

Here are my pics of my belts. Thank you both. the fun fur one is more costumey but will be perfect for Burning Man.



In case you can't tell from the pics- the top is a fun fur belt with ted ribbon ties, the second is a pink and black checkerboard belt (handpainted).

Glad it got there ok, Hawaiilove. Sorry it's a bit costumey, I feel bad now. Sorry for my daftness, but what is Burning Man?

Crafty_dame, sorry for the delay in the pictures, here's the belt on me, unfortunately my waist just doesn't do it justice.





haha, the pictures are so grainy, I almost look like I'm wearing stonewash jeans.

Crafty_dame- that is a HOT belt. Dorkabrain, Don't worry about it. I LOVE making and wearing costumes so that wasn't a putdown.

Burning man is a festival of the arts. Craziness and lots of fun. http://www.burningman.com. Its REALLY expensive t go but they do have discounted and scholorship tickets.  its totally worth the money obviously because people pay $175- 250 year after year. This is my first year going.

Is it white? What is the center stuff? Its great as usual. Another question Grin, what did you use for those metal circles? Is it pleather or vinyl. Sorry, for the zillion questions, its hard for me to tell what materials you used. DId you make one for yourself?

it's 2 layers of white vinyl, with an overlay of clear vinyl to hold the film strip in. the film strip has two people sitting on the side of the road, but i don't have a clue which actual movie it's from. and the circles are snaps, that's how it does up. there's a bunch of snaps, so if her size changes or anything, it should still fit. it's a heavier vinyl, technically upholstery vinyl. what's the difference between pleather and vinyl again?

oh, and i did make myself one, but i haven't put the snaps on yet!

I just laughed at this....mostly cause i joke with my friends that i am the ever-expanding woman!

Seriously though, its a fabulous belt.  I plan on wearing it out for a night of extreme inebriation this wednesday (my boyfriend, with whom i am currently "taking a break"--really what the 'ell is that?--is moving out and i don't expect to be in my happy place--Ahhh...self medicating!)

while the self medicating can be great for short term (oh, is it ever good! but if you do it for too long, the belt REALLY won't fit!), what you need to do is start crocheting or knitting. honestly, crocheting kept me sane when my common law partner and i split up last summer. it's not that complicated that you need to pay a lot of attention, which is good when your brain is all fuzzy. but you do have to keep track of what you're doing, which gets your mind off of the stressful stuff. it took him 3 and a half weeks to move out, and i helped him move, along with his new partner. i made a lot of scarves and ponchos in those weeks!

the knitting/crocheting does help....but it also keeps my OCD self up waaaaaaaay into the wee hours!

i LOVE how it looks with the snaps done like that! what a good idea!




and i got a funfur belt too! thanks dorkabrain! it's very very fun!

(my kitten likes the ribbon ties too, she keeps trying to climb my leg while i'm wearing it! i think i'll only be able to wear it with jeans, they're the only pants that protect my legs enough from her claws!)

Sorry for the late reply to your comment, crafty_dame. So glad you like it, funny that you said the kitten tries to claw it, I've heard that before about some of my crafts.

I prefer wearing the belt in the picture you quoted too, I think it just adds to the great belt you came up with. Thanks again.

I haven't received my second belt yet, has everyone sent?

No problem, I just bought three measuring tapes to make one for myself and they are very simple to make. PM me your address if you don't hear from your partner soon. Is Tinapickles around? I haven't heard from her in a while but I'm guessing she's busy with school.
