11  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / I made a hat! on: July 22, 2009 10:37:10 PM
I wasn't sure where else to post this, so here it sits.

So I've been searching my butt off the last few months trying to find a vintage or vintage style hat that would look decent on me without spending a gajillion dollars.  Finally after getting annoyed at the internet, i decided to just make one.  Hancock Fabrics was having one of their awesome pattern sales, and I found this pattern for hats and matching bags (McCalls M5867) It's a Laura Ashley Design, and not only is  the hat INCREDIBLY adorable, but so easy to make that it only took me an hour from cutting out the pattern to wearing it!

I have a little bitty vintage doily that I found in my stash that I pinned to the hat in the pictures because I haven't quite figured out where to place it yet, so any help with that would be awesome.

Anyway, enough words, on to pictures! (please excuse the stray threads that I haven't clipped...I clipped them off this morning, I was just so excited Cheesy)

There's more info on the hat on my blog thing http://buttonsandbrimstone.blogspot.com/2009/07/crafty-craftin.html

Hey ladies!

I've lived here for a year now, and I've accumulated a ridiculous amount of crafting stuff. I need to de-stash because I'm trying to clean up my crafting room a little and get organized.  I have some fabric, yarn, knitting needles, random vintage crafting supplies ( doll heads and such..don't ask) and a lot of fabric scraps that would be good for quilting.  So if any of you need any of this stuff, you're welcome to come take it, I'd rather a fellow craftster get it than some random person on Craigslist.

Let me know ladies!

17  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: hitch hiking Our Lady Of Guadalupe on: November 06, 2008 10:52:11 PM
awesome!  I love this Smiley

I've also done the hitchiking, it's way more tame than most people think, if you do it right.  You gotta protect yourself, and it's best not to do alone.  I have hitched alone ( one of the the longest trips I ever made I did on my own and that was Utah to S Florida) but I wouldn't recommend it, it was kinda scary.

If you do it again, the best advice I ever got from anyone and it helped me out a lot is to remember truck stops are your best friend.  1. truckdrivers are WAY less likley to kill/kidnapp/stab you, they have too many ways of identifying them, plus they have CB radio. 2. Truckstops have showers!!! 3.phones, food, and tons of people around!

I had some of the best times of my life hitching, those days are over for me, I've settled down quite a bit, but it's definitley something I'll remember forever Smiley

sorry about the hijack, I always get excited talking to other people that have done it Smiley

I love that song, it was originally written by Shel Silverstein, and a friend of my husband also recorded it, my husband walks around the house a lot singing it.
