Prompt: Big Time #2
Team: Clan of Creators
Project Name: Tree skirt for me
Brief Description: I really liked this pattern so I wanted to make another tree skirt for myself. I was able to use leftovers from the one I made for my dad as well as stash and clearance fabric for this one so it was much more economical! THis one will match my stuff better too since Most of my ornaments are black and gold.

Prompt: Accountant Sea Guild
Team: Clan of Creators
Brief Description: there was so much waste making that tree skirt! For my dads I cut it all up to make yo-ups, but for mine I ended up cutting it into strips and making a matching table topper. The pieces didn't fit back together perfectly so it is a little lumpy, but overall I think it looks okay for being practically free!

Project Name: dog toys
Brief Description: I copied my friend's idea to braid strips of fleece into a long dog chew. I'm hoping it will keep them from destroying anything while I'm at work tomorrow!

Prompt: The guild of book binders...
Team: Clan of Creators
Project Name: Pillow for my pal
Brief Description: My friend Chelsea helped me out a few weeks ago by watching my dogs for a weekend when I went out of town. The last time I watched one of her dogs, she was so kinda and gave me a gift certificate as a thank you. I didn't have the extra money to do that, so I wanted to come up with something she would appreciate just as much. I embroidered her name as well as her husbands and her 3 dogs names on a pilllow for their new house. She cried when she saw it, so I guess she liked it!

Also, here is a pick of her three pups all wearing their special collars I made them!

Prompt: The guild of the boring and unnoticed
Team: clan of the creators
Project Name: Big cloth basket
Brief Description: I recently got a pattern that has instructions for how to make all different sized cloth baskets and I decided to jump in with the largest. I'm hoping to make other sizes too because I use baskets to organize everything! Honestly though, this project is so blah that I totally forgot to post a picture of it until I read this prompt even though I finished it last month!

prompt: Big Time #1
Team: clan of creators
Project Name: Tree Skirt for dad
Brief Description: As some of you my recall, I work at a local fabric store that allows the clerks to make models for the store at a 60% discount off supplies. One of my coworkers just hung up a tree skirt in the store and it inspired me. I have always wanted to make one, so I figured I'd get a jump start on Christmas this year. What blows my mind is that even with a 60% discount, the supplies for this cost $48! I am usually very frugal, but I figured it was worth it for a present that could be used for years to come. This is my first time doing appliqu as well.

Team: Creators
Bonus points: none
Project Name: Ms. Peacock
Brief Description: This dress was so frustrating! It had 8 flounces and each one took about 45 minutes to make, plus the time for constructing the dress itself.

Prompt: UFO sighting
Team: Creators
Bonus points: +10 colors and shapes
Project Name: Clue Misc. projects
Brief Description: There were so many side items people asked for for their character as well as the dresses. There was Whites fascinator, Peacocks stole, and many other small fixes for costumes which added up to several hours of work!

Prompt:Scrap Mountain
Team: Creators
Bonus points: none
Project Name: White Top
Brief Description: I am trying to clean out every room in my house and really minimize the amount of stuff I keep. When going through a closet I found a bag of clothes that all just needed slight alterations and figured I either needed to get rid of them or fix them ASAP. This too was tight in the chest but I love the lace fringe at the bottom so I added panels of lace to each side to make it fit better!

Prompt: Free Range #1
Team: Creators
Bonus points: none
Project Name: Canvas a purse
Brief Description: I'm not good at making purses. I don't usually enjoy them and the construction confuses me. However, my second hand purse that I have been carrying for a year is falling apart so I thought I'd give it another shot.

Prompt:June Battle- old age
Team: Clan of Creators
Project Name: Miss White
Brief Description: This dress you may recognize if you squint really hard and were in the games two years ago. I was engaged and made this to be my wedding dress but when my engagement fell through, I never finished the dress. I thought it was a perfect time to bring it back for the husband-murdering character. I had to make some alterations so it fit the show but I'm happy about it!

As I mentioned in a previous post, I just costumed for the show Clue and tonight was opening night. On top of all the costumes I also did hair so I am absolutely exhausted, but I want to post some pictures!

Prompt: Kitchen Witch
Team: Clan of Creators
Bonus Points:
Project Name: Yvette
Brief Description: This is the costume for the maid. The show is set in 1954 so I wanted it to be more authentic to the time period and less like the "slutty maid" costume you can buy at a store.

Hi guys!
I just checked out the prompts for this season and I am SO stoked! What a great idea! Thanks to Smeddley and lovelymiss for making it possible and to everyone else who is contributing! This will be my first season in like 3 years not doing team Fandom and I feel a little traitorous about that, but I'll get over it. Haha! I have been costuming for Clue the play in Grand Rapids and just finished them so I will have lots to post once I get some decent pictures. Kepp up the good work everyone!

Project Name: Lamp Makeover
Brief Description: I moved my living room furniture around and I needed to get a small lamp to brighten up the place. I found this at Goodwill, but I hate the color red, so I gave the lampshade a makeover using colours I prefer.
