21  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Frozen cream cheese for cheesecake? on: August 25, 2009 04:08:01 PM
Would it change the texture a ton if I used frozen cream cheese in a cheesecake? My mom had a ton of cream cheese bricks in the freezer to use...
22  COOKING / Dessert / Oreo Cookies and Buckeyes! on: August 25, 2009 04:06:15 PM
I was baking a lot last time I was home (about 3 weeks ago) and took some pictures. I haven't had time to post them until now.

I made Oreo Cookies and Buckeye Peanut Butter Balls.

Oreo Cookies:


I love chocolate, and I was making them at the same time as the Buckeyes so of course I had to try dipping one in chocolate. VERY delicous!


I can't remember where I found the recipe, if it was on here, or through a Google search.


And the Buckeyes:



Very, very good. I found the recipe and can't seem to find the post now. If anybody finds the URL, post it,and I can add it to this post. Smiley
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I need a mannequin. What do you think of this one? on: May 27, 2009 04:40:19 PM
Since I plan on making my own grad dress, I would really like a mannequin. Well, I've wanted one forever, but I think it would be VERY useful to get it now before I make my grad dress...but now I need to know which to get.

My neighbour got on off of Ebay so long ago. I was looking on there and found one.
http://cgi.ebay.ca/ADJUSTABLE-MANNEQUIN-DRESSFORM-SEWING-DRESS-FORM-SMsize_W0QQitemZ380071549938QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item380071549938&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1215%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A2%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A24

Does anybody else have one like that? Would it be a good one? Or a bad idea?

If it's not the best, anybody know where I can get one that is not too expensive. My mom will have to pay for it since I don't have a credit card so I don't really want to have to spend a fortune.
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Prom Dresses! Pattern or no? on: May 20, 2009 07:08:32 PM
I'm just curious. I plan on making my own grad dress next year and I know an idea or two of what I want. I never use patterns (unless I made a quick pattern myself), heck, I would have to find out how to use a pattern first. But my idea would include lots of extra things added to the pattern. Using no pattern wouldn't be much of a problem for me because my boyfriend's cousin has agreed to help me already and she's always making floor length dresses without patterns.

So! Onto my intended question... when you made your prom dress did you use a store-bought pattern or just wing it?

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My latest shirts AND skirts! :) Pic-heavy. on: July 07, 2008 09:39:22 PM
Ignore the poses, I was bored. Tongue And don't mind the outfits, they aren't all meant to go together. I just wanted to take less pictures, so if they don't look good, that is why. lol


The shirt I actually did a long time ago. The skirt only recently.


The shirt has pockets! :O


Recent shirt, from scratch and without pattern.




The shirt I made today! Smiley


Details!


It looks like crap, but, meh, I just wanted to get it on. lol


The brown on the skirt is actually from the bottom of another skirt and I added the black underneath because the brown was kind of see through. The skirt has a laceup side, but I don't have a shot of it. Sad


A skirt I made yesterday. Sadly, I'm almost all out of that material! Sad


Detail! Smiley
26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Substitute for boning in Corsets? on: May 27, 2008 09:45:09 PM
I want to make a corset that is a bit stiff, but not really stiff. Any ideas of how I can make it stiffish and what I can use?

Thanks.
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Ideas for Non-stretch Fabrics? on: May 27, 2008 09:43:30 PM
I have lots of non-stretch fabric from clothes and whatnot just lying around. I have a few ideas, but not many.

Any ideas on what kinds of shirts mainly that I can make with it?
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A dress and two shirts: my first projects from scrap :D on: April 20, 2008 04:42:51 PM
Sorry about some of the crappy pictures. My younger brother took them...

This was the first dress I made. Smiley Very proud of myself. Very surprised at how it turned out haha. Made without a pattern, too.






I've never used patterns though. And I rarely make my own patterns though I want to start.

The brown top was made without a pattern also. The brown was from the bottom of a way too long skirt I got last year. The top part was just material lying around.





The light blue part of the other shirt was from another shirt. The dark blue and tan was material from other clothing that I used.


29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Making Patterns on: April 08, 2008 05:07:13 PM
I've never really made my own patterns because I just use other clothes as my basis and I alter it but I'm looking into making my own patterns.

How would I start? I kind of have an idea but if anybody else makes their own pattern maybe you could tell me what you do and give me an idea?

And I'm trying to figure out how to make a waist in my shirt. I have an hourglass shape so I need a larger bust and larger hip part, but the middle of it has to be smaller...how do I make that when I'm doing a pattern? :S
