You're right, I'm not sure if what I'm after is tyvek.  Tyvek seems smoother and not as crinkly and paper-like as the mystery fabric.  Well, I'll keep my eye out for this elusive fabric that may well be a figment of my imagination.

Thanks Soorawn.

After consulting with a few people, a name flashed in my head "tyvek."  My husband said that it sounds like what I'm describing so, yay!  I just read that you can sew it, however it may easily tear along the seams. Maybe I can reinforce along the seam with some other type of ribbon.  When I finish the bike seat covers I will post my results.  Now I just have to find where to buy tyvek...

I'm trying to find this fabric/material but I have no idea what its called.

When I was a kid, 80's-90's, I remember that there were craft kits with pencil cases or jackets made out of this fabric and you could use markers to color on them.  It's thin and seems like a combination of nylon, paper, and plastic.  I don't think it had any kind of weave to it, so it was more like a paper type of thing.  I have no idea!!

I want to make bike seat covers out of this fabric, but first I have to find it.  Any help or guesses is appreciated!  Thanks.

Wow!!  That is so original and a great tute.  I wish I had found that before my wedding.

Thank you everyone for the nice comments!

For stamping the napkins I just used aqua pigment ink.  I wasn't sure if they would turn out but I did a test and it worked just fine, despite what they said at the stamp store.

We didn't sew the dresses because everyone was spread out around the country, so I went with a necessary evil (in my opinion) David's Bridal.  However, I did sew the red sashes.

I find your piece interesting and beautiful!  I really like the blue-green border around the white face area. 

As far as your teachers, I think that teachers of professions that are very competitive and difficult to succeed in tend to be harsher on their students.  My friend was a journalism major and she said all the professors were very critical and almost discouraging.  She's said, looking back, that it was good because it prepared her for working in a very subjective and competitive industry.

My wedding was 6/6/09 and I found a lot of inspiration all over the web.  I found and totally fell in love with the aqua and red color theme.  I mixed in birds because I just like them.

This was crafted by a sister and my grandma, but it was too cute not to include!

I bought the cupcake tower online and covered it with paper and ribbon around the edges.    I used a vanilla cupcake recipe and buttercream for the cupcakes.  I found a red velvet cocoa cake recipe with cream cheese frosting for my top cake.  It was also my first time working with fondant, the cake wasn't flawless but it looked good enough (and tasted awesome)!

I stamped the napkins with the same bird that was on our programs. 

I made the accessory that I wore in my hair. Hot glue is amazing!

The invitation that I designed with my mom.  She, my dad, and 2 of my 4 sisters actually stamped and printed everything.  I love my family!

Speaking of my family, this is my sisters and I.  We made all the bridesmaid bouquets (7) and sewed the sashes.

Thats about it! If anyone is curious, all my professional photos are on Picasa.   http://picasaweb.google.com/sibelingx

Your wedding details look amazing! I especially love the fake tattoos that you had available, looked like the kids loved 'em.  I love the photobooth too! We would've rented one but we live in the middle of Illinois, so the photographer put up a background and took photobooth-like pictures!

Oooh, how cute!  I'd also like to know what type of adhesive you used on this project.
