1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / Re: Satin? on: April 24, 2011 03:47:24 PM
I realize this post is old, but I figured I would post my results anyway!

I am making my prom dress this year (ivory satin) and needed to stencil on a pattern, so I used freezer paper stencils and mixed some black acrylic paint with black fabric dye (about 50/50) and painted over the stencil, let it dry, peeled it back, and VOILA! Fabulous stencil work!  It did bleed a tad once or twice but only if the freezer paper wasn't ironed down well, so it was easy to compensate for.   

And although this post was started nearly five years ago, hopefully this helps someone, lol.  Grin
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Rookie Mistake NEED HELP ASAP! I'm desperate! [getting chalk off fabric] on: April 06, 2011 08:03:51 PM
I am making this dress for prom, and had it almost finished, but the marking chalk won't come out! I realize this is my fault, as I didn't read the directions on the chalk and stupidly used a blue chalk on a light color fabric (it shows right through the other side!).  

So now I'm stuck with what would be a pretty dress, but with big blue marks and numbers all over it!  I definitely need help on getting these marks off!

If it helps, the fabric is satin and the chalk is blue "project runway" chalk and some of the marks are blue "project runway" tracing paper.

please be kind.  i've learned my lesson and really don't have time to remake the whole dress, nor the money to buy more fabric, so if anyone knows how to get these horrid blue marks out, please, please help me... ;''(
3  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / Never Made Shoes Before and Feeling a Bit Overwhelmed on: February 18, 2011 11:05:52 AM
So, this year I've decided to make my prom dress and accessories, and since I can't seem to find any shoes that I like, I thought to myself "Hey, why not try making the shoes too?"

I have no idea how to make shoes. I mean seriously: no. clue.

I've never made shoes before, so naturally I turned to craftster and began searching the completed shoes forum, but so far no luck on how to go about starting.

I want to just make some simple, light yellow flats and as durable as they can be for the materials I want to use (though since I've never made shoes I don't even know if I can use these materials!) I want to use a fabric similar to the shoes in the picture. Does anyone know of any shoemaking tutorials or something to help me get started? Any and all advice is welcome!!!!!

OHMYGOSH. this is seriously beautiful! but i have to ask, have you ever taken fashion classes? or are you self-taught? this is seriously phenomenal either way, but i was considering entering the contest for this next year and was slightly blown away at how awesome this is--i could never have made that!--and part of me would feel better if you had been taught how to be this epic. lol

I really like all of them--very whimsical and cute. I especially love the first one with the yellow flower charms! It's so beautiful! I wish I could find some beautiful little buttercup charms like that!

Just wondering if there were any fun-loving young (preferably high school age) craftsters who maybe wanted to get together and just chat/craft together over the summer. We could share ideas, offer tips, do something all together? Just thought I'd check...

I really like the cupcakes and the mustache! the octopus is nice too, but you can kinda see the coloring lines---maybe it's because it's a sharpie? the bacon doesn't look like bacon to me, but that might just be me? overall a good job! hopefully you'll make even more!
