1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: My First Attempts at Wedding Gowns (2) [A Wee Bit Image Heavy] on: February 23, 2012 05:42:16 PM
Oh. My. Wow! Stunning!
Your dresses are gorgeous! The top of the first one is beautiful! I am re-fabricating a prom dress and I think I might do something along those lines for the top. Any tips?

I'm a big fan of hand sewing, even though it's very time consuming it's worth it in the end!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: 2011 Costume-Along on: October 04, 2011 06:51:25 AM
Oh dear, my crafting schedule just got a WHOLE lot busier. My best guy friend said he wanted to do a couple costume (because his Michael Phellps costume probabaly would be frowned upon at a church trunk or treat event haha) I was thinking of William and Kate and he was down with the whole idea then I realized I'd have to probably get a wig otherwise no one would understand (i really don't like wigs) and trying to find a red coat and lace wedding dress would be a pain. I think I'm going to suggest it to my best friend and her bf (whos hair colors are perfect lol) and tell them if they get the red coat and find a wedding dress I'll alter it for them... So until then I'm still Eloise but I'm thinking that we should go as this...


I would totes be down with this, but I'm not sure if he'd want to put on bunny ears haha!  Or this Smiley


Ahh I hate choices.
3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: 2011 Costume-Along on: October 02, 2011 07:36:18 PM
Both of my costumes are finished except for a pair of suspenders that I need to make. Even though I'm not going to be home Halloween night, I have an event the night before at a childrens event that I'm going to be dressed up for. I sewed myself a gorgeous mermaid costume that is soooo much fun or I can be Eloise (from the kids book series) I'm thinking I'm going to let my friends little sister (I'm tiny and my friends sis and I wear the same size) use my mermaid costume (even though I love it so much) because I am abosolutely in love with my Elouise costume Smiley I want to shout NONNIE! at the top of my lungs haha! I really need to get pictures of both and post them here and on my blog.
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / How to make an Indian Headress? on: January 27, 2011 12:15:58 PM
I'm trying to find a tutorial on how to make an indian headdress for a costume I'm working on. I can't find a good one anywhere... Has anyone in the craftster community made one? It'd be for a kids head. It would be pretty small not the ones that go all the way down to the ground. Like this.. http://www.crafts-gifts.com/indian/headdress.shtml except instead of all that nifty beading I'd just do leather or something like that. I can sew, hot glue, tape, (you name it I can probably do it or teach myself to) Thanks for you help!
5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / N00B Q. What is something easy to sew? on: September 08, 2010 01:25:20 PM
I know the basics of sewing, I've made a few doll costumes, and for my business I make rice bags (uber easy) and then I sew Sock Monkeys also. (The sewing part is easy for those but the hand sewing is so time consuming!)

I want to start sewing things for myself though, such as skirts, dresses, costumes, pj's things like that. Do you have any advice on what would be a simple thing for me to start with? Thanks!

6  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: G(a)linda from Wicked costume help! on: September 08, 2010 09:31:25 AM
Thank you so much! I will enjoy looking at this website! (I'm a bit obsessed with Wicked!) I will def simplify it... Alot, Like no sewing each sequin on for me... That's why they have sparkly glitter glue right?... Right? (Crickets chirp) I might even hit up goodwill and look for a poofy dress then just redo it to fit me.

Thanks again! I'm still open for ideas!
7  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Help! Perry the Platypus costume on: September 07, 2010 11:39:17 AM
You could attatch the tail to a "belt" of sorts then have other "secret agent" items hanging from the belt...
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / G(a)linda from Wicked costume help! on: September 07, 2010 09:47:49 AM
Hi craftser friends!

I'm wanting to be G(a)linda from Wicked for Halloween this year! I've seen the play twice (best musical ever just saying) I wanted to know if ya'll could help me come up with costume ideas for it! I was hoping for her "Good News" (no one mourns the wicked) dress but would totally settle for the pink "Popular" dress. I can sew but the least amount of sewing possible and I would be filled with "graditution!"

Thanks so much for all your ideas!
9  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Re: Post your CRAFTY Tattoos! on: September 05, 2010 09:21:55 PM
I have a few tiny scars from my appendectomy a few years ago and I'd love to get little ----- (dashes) with the scissors symbol at the end like "cut here" or a zipper, but my incisions are so tiny idk if I could, I thought it was kinda "crafty" considering I use zippers for one of my main crafts, my sis got a TINY cross tat on her wrist and my mom flipped so I'll have to do it later on in life when I don't need my rents permission lol! but I'd now love to get a tiny spool and a DIY somewhere lol! (Also a tiger paw for Auburn) or maybe a small squirrel outline idk why I just think it would be funny... not super crafty but yeah lol! I make sock monkeys so a mini sock monkey would be da bomb!
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Tips for Participating in Craft Fairs / I need help displaying tutus and sock animals! on: August 13, 2010 03:44:10 PM
Hi craftster friends!

I have a craft boutique coming up in a few months and I know it's a long time away to start stressing about things like that except I'm currently cleaning our old playroom in the basement and turning it into a craft studio. So I didn't want to throw away things I could use in displays before I got advice.

I will have two tables, 6 ft each. We can have anything we want behind the table but only 1/2-1 ft in front as to not interfere with people walking. It's my fifth year doing this craft fair and I absolutely LOVE it! It's such a great way to meet other people and promote my business as well. I'm probably going to be opening an etsy shop before the craft boutique so I will be able to advertize in that way also. I'm very excited! It's my second year having sock monkeys but my first having other animals so I wanted to know if there was a way I could display them other than a basket... I have other things besides my tutus and sock animals so the less space required the better I have about half a table set aside for them. ( the sock animals) But I need more ideas spacifically for my tutus. I might hang a fish net of sorts on the front of the table and hang them from there but I would like to make a banner and hang it with my business somewhere on the front of the tables...

Sorry this is so vague... Thanks for your help Smiley
