Woot! I'm glad to hear that my package arrived to craftywillow safely. Cheesy I'm also glad to hear that you enjoyed it. ^^ I'll be posting pictures tonight of craftywillow's stuff, since I've only had the chance to get a camera to use today, hehe.

I received the notice in the mail for craftywillow's package on July 22nd (which just happened to be my birthday, so I woke up to happy times, hehe), but couldn't get around to picking it up until today.

I currently don't have a camera (but plan to borrow a friend's over the next few days), to show the awesomeness that is craftywillow. <3

She sent me a Gryffindor scarf (which, I have always wanted! Cheesy), that's just fantastic. I want to wear it every day, all year long!

Also in the package was a Gryffindor wall hanging sort of thing (I'm terrible at explaining stuff, so bear with me), and three beaded key-chain sorts of things, two of which dealt with my favoooooriiitteee characters, The Weasleys! Cheesy

Dejah, you made my day when I opened your package, and I can't wait to take pictures so that everyone else can see. Wink

I've been beside myself with glee knowing that I'll get my partner information tomorrow. Oh, I don't want to wait another day! Hehe. Smiley
14  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / CANADA / What are the names of craft supply stores in Canada? on: May 30, 2008 10:17:40 PM
I wasn't really sure on where I should post this, but I figured that I couldn't lose putting it in the miscellaneous forum! Wink

My question is pretty simple. I 'm originally from the states, but am now living in Canada. I haven't done too much craft-shopping since I've been living here, so I'm not sure on the big craft-chain stores they have here.

Anyone from Canada or that knows the answer wish to enlighten me? I also live in New Brunswick.

Thanks a bunch. Smiley

You guys rock! <3 Thanks very much for the fantastic comments. Cheesy

I fully anticipate spending loads of time on the details for all parts of this outfit. But, I'm really excited to make it. And, I have a lot of time on my hands. Smiley

A lot of the time when I see tulle or tulle-esque fabrics, I notice they're often just in white. Perhaps I just didn't look throughly enough, but does anyone know if I'll have troubles finding Organdy in that shade of pink? I'm sure it's out there -somewhere-, but figured I'd ask ya'll in case someone might know. I haven't actually looked for fabric.

I definatley understand that by trying to reproduce the outfit of a drawn character has it's problems, Aislynn. Smiley But, I'm determined to make it work! Thanks for the vote of confidence! Smiley

I think that the fact that the green one has smaller flowers on it actually gives the entire ensemable a wonderful feel. Smiley Maybe it's just me, but I really enjoy the look of one large flower, a few small flowers, then medium sized flowers.

Great job, you really made me want to do something like this. It seems like it's quite easy to do too (not trying to lessen you work, haha), and also looks like a fun project! Thanks for posting, and thanks for the idea. Cheesy

Oh man, this is so absolutely perfect! Cheesy
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How would you identify this skirt? on: May 29, 2008 11:13:29 PM

So, I was reading information online about various types of petticoats, tutus, and the materials that you use to make them.

So, I'm wondering if any of you would be able to elaborate further on what -exactly- the girl is wearing in that picture. Is it a petticoat or a tutu? I've convinced myself that it's a powder-puff style tutu.

The main reason why I don't just say to myself, "Oh, I'll just modify a petticoat tute!" is because I'm not sure exactly what I want to make yet! XD

My question for now is what would you call the skirt that she's wearing? Thanks for the input. Cheesy

Also, I'm sure that you can tell that the skirt is very stiff. I'm curious as to if the material itself will give it that stiff quality, or if I'll have to do something with whatever fabric I use. I've never used tulle or crinoline or netting, or any other material that you would use to make a petticoat or tutu. If anyone has any input on what exact type of material you think I should use, I would love you! Cheesy

Thank you so very much! ^^
20  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for a Mario-inspired Chess set? :o on: December 17, 2007 02:13:08 AM
My apologies if this isn't posted in the proper section. Smiley

Anyways! I decided a bit ago that making either a chess or checkers set based on Super Mario World characters/objects for my hubby would be a good idea.

I was wondering if ya'll thought it was a good idea or not, and if so, if you had any ideas other than my own, on what to use for what pieces. Also, I know that making a checkers set would be -a lot- less time consuming and simple, but time is something that I just have a lot of (so, I think that a chess set would be a lot more fun to make!).

For the pieces, I figured that using Mario and Luigi for the kings would be neat. My one big concern was using Princess Toadstool twice for the queen pieces, but I figured that I could change her hair-color/dress-color.

These are all of my ideas:
King: Mario
Queen: Toadstool (Original hair/dress colors)
Bishop: Red-Shelled Koopa
Rook: Star
Knight: Red Yoshi
Pawn: Red Mushroom

King: Luigi
Queen: Toadstool
Bishop: Green-shelled Koopa
Rook: Fire-power flower
Knight: Green Yoshi
Pawn: Green Mushroom

So, what do you guys think?
