41  Re: Vintage Christmas Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by horrormaedchen on: December 10, 2009 08:00:47 AM
I finally took pictures today. Here they are. Unfortunately the chocolate didn't make it. I just couldn't wait. It was fruit and nut and I love it....loved it. It's all gone..............hmmmmmmm chocolate............
Anyway, here's my package from holistic knitter.

group shot

the Santa hanger. Very cute. I haven't found a place for him yet but he will go up tonight. Probably in the dining room.

two knitted Christmas wash cloths. I am very impressed. My knitting is as basic as it gets and the results are scarfs and pottholders-no pattern of course-only. I love them. I wish I was that clever.

a little angel covered box. Very sweet and when I opened I found some crochet stitch markers inside which I can use very much.
I also got Welsh vanilla fudge which might not make it until tomorrow and a lovely card.
Thank you very much holistic knitter. You are a great swap partner

I finally found our camera again Grin so here are the pictures of all the beautiful goodies I received from Becs88.
First of all the group shot

I just moved house (I know how you feel Becky...everything boxed up and everything a mess but not for long...) and didn't ask for anythin in particular except for kitchen towels, preferably embroidered so I got these cute little ones. Duck egg coloured as well which is one of my favourite colours.

Then she send me a set of vintage (they look vintage or did you make them?) place mats which might go in my dining room instead of kitchen
A very cute cookbook so I can prepare healthy nutritious meals for my husband (we just got married so now I need to prove my housewife skills)

And last but not least some fancy cocktail sticks. Some have pictures of my all time heroine Rita Hayworth on them. What a great idea this is. I definitely will use them for our house warming party soon.

Thanks Becky, I enjoyed this swap a lot and i am glad you are just as happy with your package.
And last but not least I want to share a picture of the latest addition to the family with you. I adopted a gorgeous kitty today. I know it's of topic but she makes me so happy.

43  Flowergirl dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horrormaedchen on: August 09, 2009 01:28:32 PM
I got married about 3 weeks ago. I made a little flower girl dress to match my brides maids. She looked so cute in it. I also posted all other crafty bits included in my wedding here if you are interested in more pictures and details. Thanks for looking. It was the best day of my life. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=316519.0
I am looking forward to your comments.

44  My beautiful wedding day and it's crafty little details in Weddings and Bridal Showers by horrormaedchen on: August 09, 2009 01:25:03 PM
I got married on the 25th July this year and being a crafty person I of course wanted as much as possible to be hand made. Unfortunately I could not make the bridesmaids dresses myself since 2 of my bridesmaids live in Germany and the third one and I are living in the UK. Fittings were just not possible to arrange. But fortunately I work in a bridal shop and got a good discount.
I also had a cute little flower girl and decided to make at least her dress myself and try to match it as close to the adults as possible. I also decorated a basket, my friend Julie found on a car boot sale for me. My mum did my flowers, the girl's flowers and all table decorations. My friend Julie made me a top hat for the reception and a fascinator for my mum. All in all a pretty crafty input from all sides.
We all did our own hair and make up as well.
It was the best day of my life and I could do it over and over again.

Here are some pictures documenting the day and everyone's crafty input.

my veil was a nightmare and always blowing all over the place but here you can see my hair and the flowers

My mum's fascinator (2nd left) was made by my friend and colleague, flowers by my mum and I did my own hair and make up that is blown everywhere here.

a bit better shot of my mums head piece

details of the little couple my mum added to the bouquet. They were made from pipe cleaners and polystyrene balls.

I made the flower girl dress myself. It is made from organza with a light lining underneath. I also adds little yellow flower sequins. All my flowers were yellow. I thought it is a nice contrast to the turquoise dresses.
It happened to go well with the colours of the venue. This was not planed by the way. I forgot that fact after booking the place but when I saw these first pictures (I'll be getting the photographers ones soon)
I realised how colour coordinated it all was.
The little dress went well with the adult ones as well despite the fact that they were in shantung and the little one in organza.
Group shot

The little basket to go with Emma's dress

My hat, unfortunately you can not see all the detail on it on the pictures. I will add some better ones when I get them. She added dyed lace in yellow and turquoise, pearls, little butterflies...to it.
Of course later on it was worn by several people.

We also received some crafty wedding presents. Cards made by friends' children (I am German, my husband is English so we got cards in German here)
Sorry for the massive overload of pictures but I wanted to share my special day and all efforts put into it with you.

45  One pattern two dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horrormaedchen on: June 16, 2009 12:51:11 AM
I made these two dresses a while ago. They are both from the same pattern but the look is quiet different do to the nature of the fabrics.
The first one is red cotton fabric with white pin polka dots.

and this one is made in a shot taffeta. I wore this one to a wedding a few weeks ago. I attached a flower corsage to the top.

Let me know what you think.
comments and criticism are much appreciated

46  Top skirt and dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horrormaedchen on: June 14, 2009 02:26:46 PM
Hi there,
I haven't posted anything new for a while but that doesn't mean I have been lazy. I just never took pictures of anything and things kept piling up.

I made this skirt a few weeks ago for the 40s/50s swap. My partner is/was the same size as me so I made her a pencil skirt with button details. The waist band is lined. I left the skirt bit unlined to avoid bulkiness.

please ignore the bad colour combination (pink top) I just wanted to quickly take a picture as backup for the swap.

this is a top I made out of stretch jersey. I threaded a gingham ribbon through the tunnel.

this is a pencil skirt dress I made. I made the pattern for the skirt myself (same one as the red one above) and just added it to the bodice to create this pin up inspired number.

I have a few more things to post but I just realised they are not uploaded yet so I'll post them later.

Thanks for looking.
Let me know what you think.

 Grin Grin Grin
I received my package on Friday but didn't have time yet to post. I took the pictures straight away. I am looooooving everything. Thank you so much half pint.

Lets get to the pictures straight away.

She made me some cute flower hair clips.

A lovely headband which I am wearing today as well (cherry side up).
It is revearsable.

and some little cute envelopes with retro themed pictures (they will be in the group shot at the end)

and the most amazing stencil. I told her I love Rita Hayworth. I don't know anymore if I mentioned that I will be moving soon. This will go straight into my studio on my wall. It will inspire me to make more vintage inspired stuff.
Half Pint I am loving this so much. You must have spend ages on it. Absolutely perfect.

And.........group shot Grin Grin

Thank you Kiss Kiss

48  some more dresses skirts and other bits PIC HEAVY!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horrormaedchen on: April 14, 2009 11:58:17 PM
I already posted three dresses yesterday that I had made over Easter. Uploading my pictures to photobucket took so long that could not be asked to wait that long to post the other ones. So here are two more dresses I made over the past weekend with the other ones already posted and a few older things that I photographed as well while I was at it.

Hope you like....

This one is made out of gingham and I can actually need some help with it. I find it a bit plain but I didn't know what to add to it to make it a bit more fun and wearable. The pattern I used is Butterick 4386. Again very easy and it gives you loads of options (none of which I particular like for the gingham version I made).

This is another one I have just finished and probably my favourite out of all of them I particularly like the flower I made up from my leftover scraps.

And the last Easter piece. I definitely sewed the life out of that pattern. I added a few beads and bows to the neckline.

And now some older projects
I posted this skirt before in black corduroy. This is my "Hello Sailor" summer version in cotton. The buttons are vintage. One of my proud charity shop finds. The pattern is the KASIA from Burdastyle.

A little set in houndstooth. I didn't use a pattern for this. I made the jacked in a burgundy colour again and added a flower.

The last one is a little bolero type number. Ignore my face. The picture before was a lot worse.

That's it. Let me know what you think.

49  when a painter, a photographer and I get together......LOTS OF PICTURES!!! in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by horrormaedchen on: April 14, 2009 12:50:08 PM
.......I end up covered in paint.

My friend Victor Garcia talked me into being part of an art project about 2 years ago. He and a photographer friend Juan Zamalea (please check them out, they are both amazing: www.victorgarcia.de and www.juanzamalea.de both based in Germany) cooporated in this project.
I love how the pictured turned out.

I hope you enjoy them. We were all very proud of our work.

50  sewing crazy easter weekend in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by horrormaedchen on: April 14, 2009 11:58:36 AM
I spend some of the Easter holidays sewing away. The result...a bunch of little dresses. The summer can come now. I am prepared.  Grin
This one is made from embroidered cotton. The pattern is a sweet little floral design.

this one is made from some sort of polyester fabric I guess. I added straps. The pattern is a shamrock print.

last one is blue cotton with a red polka dot trim and a halter.

C&C are much appreciated
