656  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 39 ENTRIES / Witchy Catalog Covered Earring Frame on: June 04, 2009 09:45:38 PM
Excuse the photo quality and lack of step by step photos, I have a killer migraine.  That being said, my project used the wonderful, but EXPENSIVE Victorian Trading Company catalogs that I keep around for lusting er, persusing over.  I took an old thrifted frame, and decopodged photos of things in the red/orange scheme that caught my interest.  It seems to have a kind of witchy theme to it, now that I look at it lol.

Then I cut a piece of cardboard to fit inside of the frame, covered it in a piece of black fabric.  Just used duct tape to tape the fabric in place as if I was upholstering it.  No one will see that.  I popped it in, it's a tight enough fit to not pop out again. 

Now, I just used sewing pins to stab into it and slipped some of my favorite earrings on it!  One could add a peg on top of the frame to sling necklaces/bracelets on it, but the cats would pester that to death, so just earrings it is.

Now I get to look at my favorite products from the Victorian Trading Co. without having to spend a dime!

lol You ladies rock.  I can so see myself doing the "Stepford wife" shopping cart pushing with a dress like that on, right through the crowd of white trash people in their curlers, dirty smelly nascar tank tops, and barefoot. Wink  Don't think "freaking out the people at Piggly Wiggly" (yes, that's really the name of our grocery store) would work as an excuse for the hubster though Wink

Dollbecky, I think I'm gonna pull that one out next time I get caught with a big mess on the floor and my sewing stuff all over the table lol.  "But I just want to look nice for you!"  His favorite color on me is white.  Which knowing my clumsy habits is just asking for trouble.  Plus I feel like I look like a wanna-be bride in all white lulz.

Aislynn, I go to those types of cultural events, too!  They're tons of fun.  Sadly, I work most evenings as a ghost tour guide, so I don't get to go to many at all.  Plus, even in "Old South" Charleston, people just don't dress up for ANYTHING anymore.  It's sad, really.  And I have to tell myself DUH!  My husband and I are artists, and we very occasionally even get to attend our own art openings!  Why not make a dress for the next one?!  lol "But dear, I want everyone to know you have a creative and beautiful wife for your opening!  I have to look nice for you!"

I should do the picnic in the park thing. Wink  Bring my retro "china" and my cheap silverplate candleabras hahahaha.

Thanks ladies!  Cheesy  It's sad that society seems to try to keep us from dressing up any day besides prom and our wedding, with a possible mother of the bride role years later.  LOL

LOL  Don't ever ask for help with getting organized, or you get permabanned from buying "unneccessary" stuff.

Y'all help a girl out? I want to make something like http://www.butterick.com/item/B4919.htm?search=retro&page=1 (as a shorter dress) or http://www.butterick.com/item/B5182.htm?tab=evening_prom_bridal&page=1 or even  http://www.voguepatterns.com/item/V1015.htm?tab=evening_bridal_includes_designer&page=2.  See the problem? All ready to dress up and no where to go. 

I'm sure a lot of us have these issues, and might not have the flock of friends getting married, etc to wear fun stuff to.  So where have you found a place to dress to impress in your own creations?

I live in Charleston, where it seems I see people dressed up all the time but have no idea where they're going haha.

I'm actually planning to make a cocktail dress out of this as an intentional look lol.  I think it's pretty cool to challenge the "status quo".  Just be careful to bind the ends strongly, and the Southern Belle is great.  My mom did curtains with that a while back.

I was making Save the Dates for our wedding.  My paper cutter thingie broke... so I thought it would be a good idea to use a quilting rotary cutter.

We were watching the Notebook, and just as they were about to get back together, I sliced through my index finger, through the nail and stopped only when I slammed into bone. Wink

11 stitches later, 2 through the nail, I took the movie back to Blockbuster.  Still haven't fully watched it, and it's been what, 3 years?!
