1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Re: Show me your Christmas tree! on: December 12, 2009 09:18:53 PM
Here's our tree. My husband wanted black ornaments and I chose purple to go with it.

I thought that the topper I had picked out looked a little blah, so I added feathers that happened to match the color scheme. I think my new motto is "When in doubt, add feathers".
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Oh dear...Halloween Costume help needed on: September 29, 2008 05:24:06 PM
My husband and I are going to be Sweeney Todd and Mrs. Lovett.  A few weeks ago, I came to the realization that you did.  I decided to stick with the Todd/Lovett idea because I'd have fun making these costumes and while they might be popular costumes overall, the chances of my husband and I bumping into anyone with similar costumes are pretty slim.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: 2007 Completed Costumes Scrapbook! (completed project pictures & links go here!) on: September 16, 2008 04:33:58 PM
I found a disposable camera that had been lying around for about a year and it happened to contain pictures from last year's Halloween party.  My husband is Dr. Acula (we're both big Scrubs fans) and I am his victim/nurse.

I made my dress by tracing a shirtdress I had bought at Target and improvised the hat from scraps of the dress fabric.  I ordered a labcoat from a scrubs supply catalog and had Dr. Acula embroidered on it.
4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / My Lucky Thirteen wedding crafts (Picture-pukey) on: July 08, 2008 08:05:42 PM
My love and I are getting married on July 13, 2008 and I thought I'd share some of the stuff my mom and I made and/or decorated.

My mom made this tree pretty much on a whim; the birds were 50% off, so my mom just had to get them.  I'm not sure exactly where it's going to go, but we'll find a place for it.

Here's my bouquet:

And the bridesmaids' bouquets:

A corsage and a boutonniere (we made 4 corsages and 7 boutonnieres total)

Favor boxes - I had some cute gift boxes, but they were too big and only came in olive green or burnt orange.  So I bought one, shrunk it on the copier, and traced it onto cardstock over sixty times (not to mention cutting out, rubber stamping, and assembling all sixty-some boxes).  These will hold amaretto fortune cookies.

The card box - This was actually meant for holding plants, but I thought it was cute enough to hold cards.  My mom did all the beadwork to make it a little more wedding-y.

My garter - I wanted a garter that was little more burlesque-y than what I was finding online, so I decided to make one.  I found a basic black lace garter on clearance at Hot Topic after Valentine's Day and embellished it with marabou, ribbon, and a charm.

Centerpiece - The result of 50% off sales at Hobby Lobby and gift boxes from the after-christmas clearance section of Costplus.

And lastly, my kitty Yo-Yo supervising the photoshoot.

We also made my dress and the bridesmaids' dresses, ties and pocket squares for the groom and groomsmen, and the caketopper.  I'll post pictures of this stuff after the wedding.

Cootie catchers are those paper fortune-teller things where you count to a certain number or spell out a color until you get to the inside flap to reveal your fortune.

You could put the same message in a fortune cookie.

That is the same pattern I picked out for my bridesmaids' dresses!  My mom and I had been toying with the idea of adding a shimmery, sheer fabric to the straps; after seeing the straps on your dress, I think it would be a goo idea.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Ballroom Dancing Gown on: March 16, 2008 10:24:31 PM
I was asked to make a dress for my future sister-in-law to wear for a showcase in which she and her dad would dance a father/daughter waltz. 

The entire thing

I think you could definitely wear this skirt past St. Patrick's Day. 
If you put interfacing on a stretch fabric, it won't stretch without tearing the interfacing.

Great fabrics!  The lace down the zipper and the collar add really nice detail to the sweater.
