Hey everybody.  It is late, I am tired, but more than anything bummed.

Have you seen TinkerBell movie?

Queen Clarion flies in to Pixie Hollow donning a lovely yellow dress...I want to create/replicate for my teen.  Found a pattern: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M5232.htm??tab=evening_prom_bridal&page=1
But I am at a loss when it comes to material.  I was thinking yellow lining and some kind of beaded overlay (you  know so that it glows/shines) but I can't find ANYTHING for the overlay.

When Tink is "born" she is created from a dandelion seed.  Her first dress is a cute little white thing.  I want to create something similar for my 4 year old.  I was thinking a knit tube dress but I don't know how I would re-create the texture.  At first I was thinking long fringe gathered at the waist with a satin ribbon would both give the texture and movement.  But I don't know if I could get it and I don't know how practical it is with a 4 yr old.

I may sound crazy but the movies artwork is unbelieveable.  I have never been inspired by a cartoon.  Some of the other outfits are (the other seasons outfits) are equally beautiful but well beyond my limited abilities.  I think that I could be successful with these two projects if I could only figure out the fabrics.

These are great!  Did ya know Target sells these as "Ribbies Clippies" 4 for $10.  I think I need to make me some of these.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Screened in back deck on: May 09, 2008 12:25:56 PM
This may not be the right type of question for this forum but I thought I would give it a try.  We are doing all kinds of outdoor projects starting in about a month.  New windows, new siding, flagstone paths and patios.  Everything is planned out except the new back deck. 

I want to have a screened in back deck but I just can't find anything.  I wasn't thinking I wanted to have a roof and all of that structure but I can't think of anyway around it.  Anyone seen anything or have any ideas?Huh?

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old pillowcase = new apron! on: May 04, 2008 05:15:10 AM
I have this old king size sheet set that's a red paisley.  I decided I would see how many things I could make out of it.  So far I have an apron and a dress for one of my girls...and a LOT of leftover fabric.

I am VERY prego (due Tuesday), and I just finished my first clothing piece (other than hats and scarfs).  Here it is!  I think that I do make 1 wrong because I ended up with holes...oh well.  Also, it looks like one shoulder is larger than the other but its not.  What do ya think?

Just an update....  I made the dress.  Took me forever becasue I decided to start 437 projects at once...go figure.  I am due on Tuesday so I hope the dress works for her!  Only problem is that I must do the make 1 wrong becuase I have holes.  Oh well....Here it is:
