Those are fabulous!!!  My twins are turning one August 12th (party is the 15th) and the theme is robots too! I managed to get all of the robot stuff from the Target on clearance, and am doing cupcake as well!  Yours take the cake though ( ha ha)  I'm just sticking the robot candles in the tops of frosted ones!

Yeah, I had to do them by hand as I've destroyed my sewing machine in many moves... the snaps are soooo easy!!  Grin

Inspired by this and the other fabric hair curlers post, I made some for my sister Angela's 29th birthday... using the link provided, I followed her directions sortof... being a hairdresser, I have the advantage of knowing what size rollers work where, so I made 5 large/long rollers and 4 small/short ones to accomodate the layers in my sisters hair... I used sew on snaps as the securing agent for the rollers, and tied then sewed the green ribbon on to crimp the middle part. I also sewed the ribbon onto the gift bag... Please excuse the gross carpeting in the photos!

Fabulous job!  I did a whole set of the single thickness ones a few months back (luckily I was on pregnancy bed rest and had *nothing* better to do) so I know what you mean about "never again"!!!  I love the newspaper bowl--brilliant!!!

I have a question for all you ladies with beautiful hair...

I have a plain old bob, pretty much one length, made out of stick straight hair (that didn't used to be Sad )

without getting it cut, how might I attempt the typical Marylin Monroe 'do? I've tried using my curling iron a few times today, but that just goes flat in under five minutes. I have managed to kind of curl the front part into fake bangs that flattened out to be similar to marylin's, but I have no idea what to do with the rest of my head.

any ideas?
I also want to try pin/rag curls to see what kind of fro might result. Wink

I can post a pic if anyone would like


Just a tip (my profession is doing vintage hair styling, so this is my honest opinion...) for getting your hair to look like Marilyns... you will need to have a layered hair cut, or else the style won't work-- Marilyn had a "uniform" or 90 degree cut... it's basically a mulllet-esque cut if the hair is left straight, but when set when wet with a strong hold gel, rollers and then finished off when dry with hair spray it will be those fabulous curls that make us all swooooooooon...

This is a great cut also for people with fine/flat hair, it will add a bit of body... 
Hope that helps a little!!!!

Wow, I had to jump on the "these are totally amazing bandwagon"....  Your work is incredible!!!   My 2 cents on the font matter...  I'd use the full cowboy-esque font... it makes them look like they came straight out of a 1940's western swing album or ticket for a big show from that time... just my biased opinion though!!!  Congratulations on your wedding as well as these amazing STD cards!

Super cute!!! Those are the same colors as my bedroom--love them!! You've inspired me to paint up the hideously plain table I've got going in there actually! Great job!

This is a great post, thank you retroeva!  I was wondering if anyone has used the starch/fabric wall in the bathroom...  I am all set to try it, as in my current bathroom I have 3 pink walls and one black wall with ceiling sparkle... sounds cute, and when I came up with the idea I was on cloud 9... however a year later I want to cry when I look at it... not so cute... anyways, I have fabulous repro barkcloth that I want to hang in there over it, but am concerned that the moisture from the bathroom will loosen the starch... anyone do it in the bathroom?? Many thanks again!!!
