1  Variation: Heart LOVE Wall Art in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by zynamon on: February 07, 2010 03:57:35 PM
I usually don't wonder outside of the quilting or the clothing sections here on Craftster but during my horrible week I clicked the main image and was just looking for something to distract me. I came across an amazing wall art post and fell in love. See post here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=336331.0

I love the cool gray walls, the simplicity of it, and the pop of the single red heart. Sadly my room is a disgusting gold colour (thanks to my older brother having the room first), and I just do not have the patience to align everything like that. This is what I did come up with instead, and I must say I LOVE it.

A close up of the LOVE:

And a close up of the hearts themselves:

I don't know how many hearts are up there but I would say probably somewhere around 70ish give or take. I just started at the bottom and worked my way up. The bottom hearts are white, next up is a shimmering cream, then light pink, and a darker pink. The LOVE is the darkest pink so it's easily seen, and although doesn't look centered, it is centered with my fish tank below it.

C&C welcome.

2  My 1st Quilt; Mario 1UP 'Shroom in Quilting: Completed Projects by zynamon on: January 01, 2010 10:02:05 AM
I've sewn clothing and whatnot before, but never anything this large (it's roughly queen size with a fleece backing). I can't say it took much skill as I designed it all out on my laptop first, but I am extremely proud. I had to cut about 4/5ths of the 3.5" squares out with scissors, and my machine broke not even 7 squares in. I ended up finishing it at my Nana's on her Designer 1 on the 22nd, 23rd, and the last seam on the 24th only to be given away later that day. This was how I had laid it out: (each square represents the finished 3" square)

Anyhow this is the only picture I have until I can steal my mother's camera. It's not great, but my dog claimed it before my lucky fiance could get it.

Thanks for looking!

Also, I know it's not perfect, but that adds to the homemade charm, right? Haha. Criticism welcome.

3  Help... I fell in love with this dress. in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by zynamon on: July 20, 2009 03:38:47 PM
Hi folks.

I'm not new to sewing by any means, and I decided that I was going to have a short dress wedding as it'll be at a camp site. Well the more I've done research, the more I've fallen in love with dramatic romantic dresses. My number one dress right now is this:

I'm assuming I could just sew the lace to a bustier with a bit of a lace overlay on the back for the buttons, and make basically a circle skirt and start gathering and sewing tulle to it, and on the top layer sew the lace on by hand and then sew all that to the bustier. Am I going in the right direction, or am I completely off?

Actually an after thought, I'd have to sew all the lace (bustier and bottom) on after the skirt was sewn on, right? Also, how do I go about getting those amazing buttons, and the piece that goes around them? And would a double sided satin ribbon would for the bow?

Sorry to ask so much of you, I just adore this dress plus romantic and country seems perfect to me.
