2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Am I crazy or is this normal? on: April 17, 2009 08:22:44 PM
I don't know if this happens to anyone but me or not. i want to make a dress out of a tshirt and a bandanna, sounds easy right? not. the tshirt is a really fresh one i bought online (that isn't sold any more) and I'm scared to cut it in fear that ill screw up and ruin what I'm doing. i bought the shirt when i was heavier its a  big 2x and i now wear a XL/L. i love the shirt so i want to make it a dress to wear this summer. i love this shirt and i don't want to screw it up. here's a pic of what i plan on doing made in paint...

i may do an x in the back. idk. id have to cut the shirt first. omg.
thanks for looking at my madness. hope this is in the right place/ makes sense. ~Ozzy

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Help with plushie pattern (Sewing) on: July 30, 2008 10:44:49 PM
I want to make a very large plushie, sewn completely by hand (I hate and suck at hand sewing). My machine will be in storage until September and I can't wait that long I have plushie fever! I decided to draw up a pattern for a very large plushie with a 16 inch zipper in the back so I can stuff smaller plushies inside it! I must be crazy so I drew my pattern on some taped together newspaper and realized I can't get the ears where I want them, I want them straight, close at the bottom and out to the sides. So I made a picture in Paint of basically what I drew up with some rough measurements (due to my indecisiveness about the ears placement is temporary and I don't have measurements).  The more I work on this project the more I feel in over my head, Ive already bought the fabric and zipper so my question is, Is this practical or am I in over my head? (Please keep in mind I have more little plushies to make that I haven't bought fabric for yet). Well here is my bunny sort of thing (The red thing is the zipper, and the orange is approximate eye sizes and placements.)...

I'm not sure how well I explained myself but now after sharing my confusion/frustrations about what to do next (Ive been putting off cutting the fabric for over a week) hopefully things will become clearer.
Thanks for reading all my stuff and checking out my pattern,
6  COOKING / Dessert / Grandma's Apple Cake on: July 28, 2008 06:10:56 PM
OK I tried to make my Grandma's Apple Cake but it didn't work out like I had planned (the batter is mixer only, unless you want to mix by hand for over an hour  Roll Eyes that was not fun). Anyways here it is, sorry I cant share the recipe, its a secret (*giggles*)
Thanks for looking, Ozzy

I think it's pretty in an ugly sort of way

7  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Safely Painting A Light Bulb For Use? on: July 28, 2008 02:43:50 PM
Is there any way I can paint a light bulb and use it safely at home? Would there be a special kind of paint I would have to use? Or a special bulb? Is there a chance this would be dangerous? Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Ozzy
