1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / anyone know how to make this? on: August 27, 2010 09:00:03 AM
Eh, I feel so dumb for having to ask this.  BUT!  Does anyone know either how to make these or what they're called...or know a good tutorial.  They seem easy enough.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / fabric question on: February 19, 2010 11:11:22 AM
Hey guys I have a question for you.  Do you think this pattern: http://www.simplicity.com/p-2317-misses-special-occasion-dresses.aspx
could be sewn in eyelet?  I wouldn't do the lace overlay if I did it in eyelet.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / A Punk Rock Toddler! on: November 01, 2009 10:17:41 PM
Yay!  It's my very first challenge!  So, last halloween was my VERY first halloween as a mommy.  Our daughter, Kayleigh, was only 6 months old and I REALLY REALLY wanted to dress her up as a punk rocker, but I was a little nervous getting the hair coloring in her hair.  This year, I am wiser....and not as neat.  So I decided that I was going to do it!  Who cares about the mess?!? 

So, I made her shirt out of a shirt that I used to wear in high school.  I just made a tube top and then safety pined a strap to make it a halter top.  The skirt we got at a children's second hand store here in town (an awesome place I might add).  Anyways, It was a cute plaid skirt, but she wasn't going to be a cute girl for Halloween, she was going to be a punk rocker!  So we had to punkify with (what else) some skull decals and more safety pins.  The chain (I didn't get a good picture of the chain) is actually my chihuahua's dog collar which was (you guessed it!) safety pinned on to her skirt.  The tights were just random tights we had and I took a seam ripper to them to make them "fishnets" because strangely enough they don't make toddler fishnet stockings...weird huh?  The boots we bought at Kohl's which we're going to return.  They're too big in the feet and too tight on the legs!!  Then there's the hair.  Oh boy.  You can see her fingers are all green because she was playing with her hair.  I should have just gone with the mohawk!  Now I have to clean her car seat...her newly green car seat!  The pictures aren't the best, but that's what you get for trying to take pictures of a toddler while she's playing in the park!

This is the front (sort of)

This is her side (oh yeah, we put a couple tattoos on her...because you're not punk rock until you got some ink Wink )

back (you can really see her green hair in this one!)

Another back! a skully on her butt Tongue

Another back...just because!

Here's a nice shot of the spider tattoo on her back!

Yay!  This was so much fun!  I hope this is the first of many homemade costumes to come!

5  California / California: North / ALAMEDA CRAFTERS!! I have just one question! on: October 26, 2009 11:27:02 PM
I need to find an old time photo booth in/near Alameda!  You know, the booths that give you a strip of 4 or 5 pictures.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Vintage wedding dress drama! on: October 20, 2009 12:32:30 AM
So, I am planning on getting a vintage wedding dress, I recently fell in love with Emma Domb.  My mom has offered to buy the wedding dress, she said this when she found out I was engaged.  When I told her of my plans to buy vintage, she kind of freaked out.  She said that didn't want me to wear something "used" and is pressuring me to get a dress from the $100 rack at a bridal store I went to in high school for prom and whatnot. 

So, how do I nicely tell her that I'm getting a vintage dress whether she likes it or not.  I feel bad because she did offer to pay for my dress, but my fiance and I also budgeted in the money for a wedding dress, so it's not like we're depending on her paying for it.  It's important to me that I buy vintage or I make the dress.  There are so many perfectly good wedding dresses already out there that I would feel bad for bringing another one into creation.

Thanks guys!
7  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Baby's First Tattoo Sweater question on: June 11, 2009 11:14:53 AM
So, I'm making the Baby's First Tattoo sweater for my 1-year-old and I came to a problem.  I am stitching the two front panels.  So, I am working the St st until the last four stitches and then I'm working the seed stitch for the last 4 stitches.  But, here's my problem: The two colors aren't connecting so the border isn't attached to the st st part.  What the heck am I doing wrong?!?!  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Smiley

9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Need help finding images on: January 31, 2009 05:52:04 PM
I was considering creating an online store and including some domino pendants that I am making.  However, I am worried about using pictures that are copyright protected.  I was just wondering where you guys get images that you can legally use in your crafts to sell.  

Any help would be appreciated Smiley
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / refurbishing a jewelry box? on: December 20, 2008 08:18:09 PM
So, the other day I went to Goodwill and was just looking around (honest!) and I came across this huge jewelry box (that was probably beautiful back in it's day).  So, for only $5.25, I bought it-mostly because I see all these awesome projects that you guys do and it really inspired me. 

However, I have never done this before.  The box is made out of solid wood.  What do you guys think would be the best paint for this project?  Originally we were thinking spray paint because we already have it, but I am having second thoughts.  Do you guys think spray paint would be the best type of paint for this project?  Also, any tips for those who have been there?
