1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Minnie Mouse costume!! **Edited to add Mouse ears and the full costume!** on: October 22, 2008 01:41:08 PM
*Edit*  I added a picture at the end of the full costume in addition to my mouse ears I made Smiley  I decided to skip the gloves, because I would have taken them off after about five minutes. 

I wanted an excuse to make a cute dress for Halloween, since it feels like I never get a chance to wear dresses.  This dress was made from scratch, entirely from my mind, and with the use of no patterns.  I'm really proud of myself because I planned this out pretty well and I'm really pleased with the dress.  Next I'm making the ears and gloves...

I added darts.  They actually turned out okay.

Side view.  It isn't perfect, but I can't wait to wear it.

The whole thing Smiley

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From bed sheet to Azalea dress (kind of) on: May 06, 2008 01:56:14 PM
I bought an old bed sheet from a thrift store hoping to make an Azalea dress (from burdastyle.com).  As I started looking at the pattern, I decided I wanted to change it up a little because I was afraid the dress would make me look pregnant.  I'm thinking about cutting it off into a shirt, but I'm not sure.  Opinions?

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / cutesy owl wall hanging on: May 02, 2008 08:46:51 AM

I made this little owl wall hanging out of scrapbook paper & glued it on to a piece of wood so that I can hang it on the wall. Not sure where it will go just yet!
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Pink dots cork board! on: April 28, 2008 08:54:49 AM
It seems that the Dollar Tree and I have bonded over cork tiles.  They come in 6" x 6" squares in packs of four.  You also get these nice little adhesive thingies to stick them to your wall.  Having a sad, empty wall in my supposed-to-be-dining-room craft room, I figured I'd cut circles out of cork, spray paint them pink, and hang them on the wall.  I actually really love the result.  Pictures!

Sad, bare wall.

The cork is up.

With all my silly little cards & whatnot.

Up close.

5  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Filing silver/copper on: January 02, 2008 04:56:24 PM
i want to start working with silver, but before i do so, i'm going to work with copper.  Basically, i want to cut shapes out of sheet silver/copper.  my conern is that i do not know where to find the correct size file for copper or silver pieces.  my goal is to file the edges so that they are smooth and rounded, rather than sharp.  does anyone know of any websites that can sell me the correct files?  i've seen files for silver/copper wire, are those the same?  thanks!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / cutting acrylic pendants on: June 24, 2007 03:34:20 PM
so, i've been looking for ways to cut acrylic into pendants (as well as other materials, such as wood).  i don't want to use shrinky dinks; i'm looking into using acrylic.  is there any way i can cut it with a dremel? (using a blade, of course Cheesy)  Or, do i have to get a jeweler's saw?  any help is greatly appreciated Smiley  thanks!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / where can i get wood for making pendants? on: June 20, 2007 02:38:42 PM
i apologize if this is the wrong area to post this, but i'm looking for wood that i can cut to make pendants.  i've seen a few people on here do that & i was wondering where you can get thin wood like that.  thanks.
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / attaching beads to chains? on: May 30, 2007 09:25:02 PM
i'm sorry this is a silly question, but how do i attach beads to a chain?

like this:

is there a piece i use on the bead, or do i have to make my own with thick wire?  thanks!
9  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / is this made from shrinky dinks? on: May 19, 2006 11:59:41 PM
I really want to make jewelry like this, and I was wondering if anyone knows what they were made of.  My best guess is shrinky dinks, but I've never used them before so I could be totally off base.  Thanks everyone!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Green Necklace w/ Jade Heart on: July 19, 2005 09:27:22 PM
First, let me say that you all make amazing jewelry!  I have been wanting to try jewelry making for a little while, so I went out and bought some supplies.  This is my first piece of jewelry ever, so that's why it's a little juvenile.  Even still, I like it because it suits my personality, and I LOVE hearts. Smiley


It's even, I swear.  I just got a bad picture.
