Those knitted animals are adorable!  And I love the acorn bookmark a lot.

Not trying to take the shine away from all those goodies -but I wanted to add a photo of the owl bag I made.
I love the lining!  It is tree fabric that I bought a couple years ago (I LOVE trees).

PS. The photos aren't the best because I just snapped a few photos right before boxing up and driving like a maniac to the post office.

2  Harry Potter corset in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by IceCreamCone on: November 17, 2005 08:17:16 PM
Just completed it yesterday!  The fabric is from book two.
I wanted something fun to wear to the new movie.  I am so excited!
The ribbon is not the one I wanted to use, but will do for photo purposes.

PS.  I have larger photos, but my photo webhosting site is having issues.

I am going to an amusement park next week - and I needed something that I could wear on the rollercoasters, so my lipgloss/etc wouldn't fall out of my pockets.
Your hipslinger is perfect! 
I added a zipper and am not finished with the belt part.  I will go to the store tomorrow for velcro - the kind I have is too thick for sewing and has glue on the back.

Thanks for the tutorial!!

4  Butterick 3805 - Bonnet in Sewing Pattern Reviews by IceCreamCone on: July 14, 2005 11:38:27 PM
I already posted photos in the 'completed projects' area:  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=43129.0.

I volunteered at my local College, to help the Theater Costume Department out.
I sewed/made the three bonnets for Cinderella's step-mom and two step-sisters.
Actually, there weren't many sewing parts.

The pattern was difficult (I thought), and took many many hours.
Thank golly I had the Costume Teacher there to ask my thousand questions to!

I am glad I volunteered and I think it will help me use patterns in the future.

5  Re: Skirt Altered #3 in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by IceCreamCone on: October 04, 2004 08:29:56 PM
I love the skirt! I was wondering about the panels. What type of fabric are they, stretchy or woven? Do you have a waistband on the panel part, or is it just finished on the top? Also, how do you get into the skirt, I mean, is it a zip or pull on type skirt? Just curious.

I love the stars, great idea! Do you think you could take a pic of the panel turned so I could see the shape of it better? I'd like to try this out.


I would have answered sooner, but being out camping = no internet access!
The panel fabric is something I bought at a fabric store.  I just walked to the black fabric section and picked the texture that matched my skirt the most.  Sorry if that doesn't help much!  It's thicker than typical fabric that has patterns on it.  If you held it to the light, you probably wouldn't be able to see through it.

The fabric is not stretchy and there is no waistband on the panel part (like you asked).  The skirt already had a zipper on the back, so I didn't need to worry about it.  Luckily for me, the zipper didn't go all the way down, so when I cut many inches off the bottom, the zipper wasn't in the way. 
And yes, I will add a photo to show you the panel shape.  I made my own pattern for the panels, it was easy so you should be able to make one also!

Any other questions that I didn't answer?  Hopefully the photo will load.
PS.  The star looks mishapen because I didn't smooth it down before I took the photo.  The star is actually shaped perfectly.  Also, the top looks weird, I forgot to hide the other side of the skirt, and it blends in and you can see the inside of the opposite side.

Here's a close up of the knitting icon:

(Cat hair is optional)

Oh yeah, I vote for the cat hair!
It's all over my crafts too.
