11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Jacket help on: August 13, 2005 10:39:04 PM
this is edited because I just realized how retarded it sounded..

hey you guys.. Smiley

I kind of fell in love with this lady's jacket

and want to make my own..

but what I was wondering, where would I find a pattern like that?
I can't find any other good pictures of it.. but it looks a lot like a reallly wide and tall collar that unzips to lay flat. if it were zipped up all the way it'd be like a turtleneck jacket that went up to your eyes. I'd prefer to find one in 16/18, and if it were something that Joanns or hancocks carries, life would be so much easier Tongue

Or, if it's too much of a pain to find a similar pattern, how hard would it be to modify one to work? What would I need to do?
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / EEP! Taffeta question on: August 09, 2005 03:06:46 PM
How do you get the wrinkles out of taffeta? I made myself this gorgeous circle skirt out of this fantastic black and purple taffeta, but after wearing it once, it has a whole ton of crinkles in the back from where I sat down.. How do I get them out? I can't iron it, the fabric melts..
13  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / What about something for adoptive parents? on: June 30, 2005 03:46:32 PM
I put another similar post in the brain blockage gift section, please delete one or the other if it's innapropriate.

buut.. I'm about 8 months pregnant, and I'm going to be meeting the couple I chose to adopt my baby in a couple of weeks, and I was just wondering what sort of thing would be an appropriate gift? I'd like to do something small and kind of classy.. Originally I was planning on putting together some way to display the sonograms as well.. (eep.. I can't tell any of them apart. they all look like gray scribbles to me.) but is there anything else I could do?
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gift for adoptive parents to be? on: June 30, 2005 02:22:33 PM
I'm almost 8 months pregnant, and I'm going to meet the couple that I chose to adopt my baby out to, for the first time in a couple of weeks, and ideally, I'd like to find some attractive way of presenting the sonagrams for them, and maybe make something else to go along with it.

The only things I could come up with was a collage of all the sonagrams with.. "Congratulations.. you're going to be the proud parents of a .. little gray squiggle." on it..

but.. I dunno.. I guess I wish I could come up with something a little classier. Any suggestions are a big help! thanks!
15  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / my wonderful guitar (edited.. pictures work!) on: June 24, 2005 03:09:21 PM
it's nothing special.. I just found these AWESOME wonderwoman stickers at craft warehouse, and I was like.. hmm.. GUITAR!


16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / pretty maternity shirt that I could actually wear afterwords on: June 14, 2005 08:31:37 PM
I think the title is pretty self explanatory..

but I made the top with this pattern http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4836.htm?tab=tops_vests&page=1

I'm really pleased with how it turned out.. except for the crazy gathers. They weren't that hot. I fixed em though.. and the beautiful thing is that it's perfect for pregnant bellies.

Apologies for the chestiness of the pictures, I fixed that right after I realized how much boobage they show.. but am far too lazy  to take new ones.



17  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Father's Day / I could really use some help.. on: June 12, 2005 06:25:09 PM
I'm kind of stumped as far as what to do for my dad. He loves western movies and war movies (like Patton). He's also a big fan of stupid comedies.. (super troopers for instance.. and his favorite movie ever is Joe Dirt.) He used to be a gunsmith and worked with smoke jumpers for years..

I'd like to do something kind of goofy..  or make something sentimental. I'm kind of lost as to what I could possibly do though.

Food will just go to waste (unless it's shaped like male genitalia.. he'll just show it to everyone who comes over to the house then)

Any help is appreciated.
18  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Oregon(ian)/pac nor west in a box? on: May 22, 2005 06:13:25 PM
I have a friend who's brand new to the pacific northwest, and is living in the grand ole state of oregon.. I'd like to make her a "survival kit" for living here (she's from florida)... and I'd like to make it something kind of humorous.

I made a scarf and labeled it "for summer only" (since apparently it's so much colder here than there..

and put an umbrella hat thing in it (for sudden weather changes)

a disposable camera (for all those awe inspiring landscape shots and crap)

car sick pills (because of the mountains)

and.. I'm kinda lost on what else to put in there..
19  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / LIGHT UP SHOES on: April 22, 2005 11:38:24 PM
Remember those awesome shoes we had back as kids, that would light up whenever we took a step?

I miss those. I really want a pair. How hard would it be to make your own? is there anywhere online that has a tutorial for the electronic parts?
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I made a corset on: March 31, 2005 04:18:05 PM
this was my first major sewing project, and I'm quite proud. I still need to iron it, but I wanted to take a quick picture and show you guys. Apologies for the webcaminess.
