1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Wedding invites on: May 22, 2009 10:28:07 PM
I really like the maps used for envelopes.

The Australia cutout would make a good thank you card, I agree with another comment on that one.

As for the invites you have, I like the suggested idea of using a bride and groom, i'd suggest trying it out first in a photocopy of the maps so you don't cut them up if you don't like it.

I don't think the bell fits with what you have going using the maps. The bride and groom would be cute with it if you want the wedding type element added to it.

An option that I think would be really nice would be to make the cards out of a faded version of the maps for the overall invite, then do the bride and groom cutouts in a lightweight paper. maybe something thin enough to almost see the writing on the inside that would be the info for the day. you could put the bride's name behind the bride, and the groom's name behind the groom, and then the other info below that. If you use the faded type of map look, I think it would go well with the envelopes without being too busy. It would help from being too distracting of the information that is on the invite.

thanks for the ideas ladies. i'm not an accomplished seamstress by any means, but i'm going to give it a try. i figure if i mess up the skirt at the seam, the sash will cover it up.  Grin  I also plan on finding bargain fabrics so that my daughters can use the dresses for dress up play when all is done, so it will be ok if its not perfect. i've got nearly a year to practice, so i should be able to figure it out between now and then.

If they are able to be taken apart and put back together so you don't mess up the string, you could spay paint them with a paint that works on plastic so that they match your color scheme then add your monogram to them. Maybe do some in one color and some in another color to match your scheme from your wedding. I think they are a great idea especially if your friends and family know you are a fun loving couple. You could even include a little instruction sheet with tips on how to do some popular yo-yo tricks.

I found this adorable dress while glancing through a bridal magazine, and want to make it in colors to match my wedding for my two flower girls. I'm new to the whole dress making thing, so I was wondering if anyone has seen a pattern that is similar to this?


Thanks in advance.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: quickie dress that anybody can make - Infinity Dress and link to tutorial on: May 15, 2009 05:40:01 AM
I finally got a sewing machine! And it was FREE!! A friend of ours had one that she was never going to use and asked if i wanted it. YAY. I have also found this really cute fabric on sale at walmart that I'm going to try it out on. I'm going to try it out maybe this weekend time permitting. My only question now is since I'm a total newb at any type of making clothing myself is this... How do I measure to get the length of the skirt? I know the measurement is my choice on length, but I have no clue how to do that. Do I just measure from waist to the length i want? I'm using a hankerchief style skirt, so I figure I'll need to make sure it will be long enough for both the high spots and the low spots yes? Sorry that I have so many questions. I've wanted to start making things for myself for years and never had the ability, and this site has sparked my want again, and I'm determined to finally do it since I now have something I want to make.

Depending on how many people you need, you could maybe try a local Hotel. I think that is what I'm going to do. They even have tables and can set them up in a reception style setup that can hold around 90 people.

just a thought on if the dye doesn't work right on the wedding dress, maybe you could get an underskirt to make the prom or bridesmaids dress more poufy. Or you could even maybe add a layer over it and fancy it up some to match what you want it to look like.

That ring is absolutely gorgeous. I love the nerdy ideas. Altho my fiance and myself are not nerdy in the sense of biology and chemistry, we are in our own way. We are incorporating an emblem from our favorite tv show. We both love Smallville. So when crafting my invite stationary, I found the House of El emblem and edited it to just the outline, and it ended up looking like a diamond. So now I can incorporate it everywhere and most will just think its a diamond shape! And I'm thinking about finding some fake crystals to use for center pieces. Or if I can get them cheaply enough, maybe some quartz from the local New Age shop. Make it look like Krypton stones. Which is what my fiance called the quartz crystals the first time he saw them at the store.  Cheesy

Good luck on your designing, and if I think  of anything, I'll let you know.
