21  Burgundian velvet dress in Costumes: Completed Projects by Lettersalad on: April 06, 2013 11:52:15 AM
So I had this gorgeous cotton velvet lying around and totally had to do an awesome medieval dress with it.
Alas, it was not enough velvet to dress me... so my second daughter had to bear that burden. But even for her, the fabric STILL was not long enough - so okay, I remember having that vintage curtain fabric lying elsewhere, totally in-time with inwoven fleur-de-lys pattern... here you go, baby:

Now I'm sooooo jealous.

And I have an urge for tulips.
Luckily, I can have as many as I want whenever I want them.

Watercolor pencil with ball pen on paper, ca. 20 cm * 10 cm.

23  No tangled mess in Costumes: Completed Projects by Lettersalad on: March 30, 2013 01:51:16 PM
So my best friend has a daughter, too, but can't sew. We went shopping together, and she ended up with a silky-shiny polyester two shades of violetpurplerosesomething. Me, I ended up with a good friend asking me if I could sew her daughter a nice costume.
Guess I could and wanted to do a Rapunzel-themed costume anyway. So here I proudly present to you Miss Rapunzel:

Seems we got here a little early cause she's still working on the embroidery on her skirt. Well, never mind, that's taken care of.

24  In fact, I'm more into portraiture... in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by Lettersalad on: March 30, 2013 01:15:51 PM
...as you can see.

These are acrylics on canvas, app. 30 cm x 40 cm.

I also do them in blacknwhite (or, more correctly, in grayscale).
But sometimes I go all over the top and use oilpastels just the way I like to!

Yayyyy colorssssss!

Did I mention I love colors?

I'm a mother of three and painting, sewing and crafting in my free... ah, make that in my few spare moments time.
I love painting in oil, and I love flowers. So I made these, all on canvas, 50 cm by 70 cm:

Happy crafting,

26  Who's the fairest of them all? in Costumes: Completed Projects by Lettersalad on: March 30, 2013 05:07:10 AM
I'm a mother of three wonderful girls, ranging in age from very nearly 8 to a while now 11 (with a soon to be 10 in between).
I'm interested in renaissance faires.
I can sew, too.
You see where that will lead, do you?
Of course I get all kinds of costume related wishes from the girls, and sometimes (well, more like every time) I bow to their wishes.

This is my youngest daughter in her Snowwhite costume. You would have guessed, would you? Cheesy
The skirt originally was an old curtain of some vaguely shiny fabric. I had some scraps of blue velvet (the cheap kind pressed in all directions), red polyester, and some denim.
Used the poly to make a lining for the velvet and the inner parts of the sleeves. Reinforced the outer sleeves with a denim backing. Used two zippers for the inner front part of the bodice (I had some musings about just making a new, bigger part when she outgrows this... but forgot about the armpits. Too tight there). The apples grew by themselves in our garden... Wink

(The legend says "The consumption of apples in this costume is on your own authority..." in german. Face was deleted due to our no-kids-pic-on-internet-policy, not due to apple eating.)

Happy crafting,
