1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Glitter and Fabric on: June 15, 2010 06:12:53 AM
Alright, so I'm working on a pretty prom type dress. I want to put some sprinkles of glitter on it, But the only Fabric glitter they have other than straight glitter paint (Which I don't want. Not the effect I want.) Is too dark of a green ("They" being Joanns) I already have the glitter bond stuff (Tulip brand) And I'm wondering if I can use ultra fine or regular craft glitter instead of the fashion glitter. Is there a huge difference? I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to stick this dress randomly into the washing machine anyway... so what do you think? Any alternatives ya'll might be able to suggest if alternative craft type glitter wouldn't work?

For the record, I'll be trying to affix it to Costume Satin.

Thank you in advance Cheesy

My resolution? Top of the list is probably lose the weight (I want to compete for miss spirit of the state this year, and miss Michigan next year) My biggest problem with this resolution? I don't think before I act, I will be walking around thinking about the latest political blog, and I will instinctively reach for the pretzels or cereal box, So I needed something that would really get me to STOP and THINK about it. Thus, The mask.

Originally I crocheted one out of plastic bags, but I didn't like it, (The picture below is the in progress shot of it) It stretched too much, So then I used some duct tape and felt I had laying around. (Sorry all pictures are links, Haven't posted enough yet )

*points at the below picture* SHINY DUCT TAPE!!!! with holes, and YES they are supposed to be at the nose, makes it easier to breathe Tongue

*points to next picture* They hook just above the ear with jewelery findings Smiley (and please ignore the super red ears LORL)

*next picture* a better picture of how it goes together, Two separate pieces, one is a headband, the other a mask.

*next picture* ok final picture, this shows the felt back, why felt? Because its warmer than duct tape, and softer than duct tape, and because it was there lol.

Just wanted to say, thank you all for the awesome resolution Ideas, I particularly loved the resolution mobile, the "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels." Plaque, And the Pretty princess weight loss wall chart. But this whole competition has inspired me to keep up with my resolutions, and probably take on some new ones, thank you.(Who says you cant make new years resolutions in February? Tongue)
