this is a great idea!  i think those lanterns are pretty common and that means i could find one and try it (^_^) because now i want to...

that shirt rocks harder than a flying motorcycle.

yeah i was going to say jersey but fleece is actually a way safer bet (it generally blocks the wind better, and stretches less)

i like how the effect went from icky pressed wood to what could be enameled metal, just with paint.

do you send to the same person who crafted for you?  and are they birthday persons, too?

ETA: i don't think i can do the time-pressure but maybe my question will be useful to someone else, so i will leave it up there.  thank you, though (^_^)

that's really cool!  i never would have thought of carrying meds in felt.  they don't get fuzzy or disintegrate on rainy days?  i'm impressed.

also i have to tell you this for comic relief... i was "reading the pictures" first (talk about brain power?!) and i thought the bottom line was txt speak for "thanks for sex" and was trying to figure out what the top line was saying in txt speak...
i guess there's been a lot of naughty embroideries lately...
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Fleece Hufflepuff Scarf on: November 20, 2010 09:41:53 AM
i was just the other day wondering about making hufflepuff items with limited yellow (becos that would probably be my house but i hate yellow.  love badgers, though!) and this is a very classy solution to that dilemma.  also, i don't know what you mean about the sewing because it looks very professionally done - i love the look of the appliqués.  how do you do appliqués so neatly on fleece?  is it still possible to iron-on before sewing, even though it's fleece?

if i were you, i would eliminate the outline in your stencil, letting the black background become the outline also.  (that means you should even ignore the thin white line in my image below).

apart from that, you could cut out holes of all the green areas as one stencil for green and cut out holes of all the other white areas as another stencil for silver.  unless that's not authentic.  i'm only a moderate fan so i am not up on all the exactitudes of the potterverse.

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: What to do with velvet circle skirt. And there's a hole in jersey scarf,help! on: November 13, 2010 06:30:01 PM
i've had cloth eaten by rodents even (it was in storage) and it looked like that.  so it could be anything.  you might consider reverse-appliqué in a darker color (so it would sort of show through the cloth for a layer-y effect, even where there isn't holes), either with or without cutting around the holes... i sort of like the holes, but to make it look on-purpose you might have to make some more holes somewhere else.

i plan to do this (i mean, reverse-appliqué) on the back of a thin-jersey top that i made a hole in accidentally while trying to take out the label.  the dang label was sewn in there much stronger than how the fabric was made.

ETA: for the velvet skirt, you might shorten it just a bit (necessary) so it works with the shoes you would like to wear it with, and then i would add something to it to make it work for more occasions.  i guess i must be on an appliqué-trip in my brain because i imagine it with wonderful bohemian flowers all around the bottom.  but that might not be your style, but, consider something YOU would want to appliqué on there.
