A tip for spraying RIT dye: put it in a glass bowl and nuke it in the microwave for 1-2 minutes
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Afternoon sundress alteration on: April 08, 2012 03:44:02 PM




            I've had this dress for about six years in my alterations pile. I got it at debs for a dollar on clearance.
 Its a 2X and I'm more a Med to Large
                                   


                                   This is it before.
                                   

            I separated the skirt from the bodice keeping both attached to the zipper, took it in at the side seams and baste gathered the skirt, also adding darts in the back. The neckline trim gaped a little so I gathered it into a more sweetheart shape.
                                   

             I need to make a petticoat to go with it, the one I'm wearing in the picture is for mini-skirts

It could totally work post baby too. Its nice to have a comfortable semi-formal option that looks really elegant.
Good Job!
26  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / kids flip flops with tutorial on: April 07, 2012 03:06:28 PM
                                       


To Make you will need
Flip flops (or any flat soled shoe that fits your foot
Corrugated cardboard
Fabric (to cover the sole)
Ribbon
Batting or craft foam (for padding)
Hot glue
Leather ( or more craft foam)
 

                                                     Trace shoe onto cardboard
                               

                 Cut four pieces of cardboard. I cut two going horizontal and two vertical but you could to diagonal too.
                                     

                                                     Glue two soles together making sure the grain crosses
                   
 
   Cut two soles out of leather. I used glove leather scraps purchased on ebay. You can use any material 1/4 thick
                 
                               
              I forgot to take pics of the next steps

           Glue batting or any other cushiony  material to the cardboard.

         Take the material you want to use to cover the shoe and cut around the sole adding a half inch to an inch   depending on how thick the cushion is.

      Glue the fabric to the bottom of the two pieces of cardboard pulling tight. (its OK if its wrinkled)

     Place your foot on the covered sole and measure for the front strap. Cut two

     For the back strap place a long ribbon or other fabric strap under your heel and wrap it around your ankle to figure out how long it needs to be to tie securely. Cut two

  Glue the front and back straps onto the cardboard. I messed around with placement for a while.

  Securely glue the leather to the cardboard, laying down 1/2 inch of glue and then pressing firmly
                             

     Then wait for it to cool strap on and go

Those are great. To store them you could get a hand shaped ring holder or if you're cheap like me twist some coat hangers into a hand shape.
28  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Re: The weirdest things we could spin? A game! on: April 02, 2012 09:49:06 PM

I think I would use this pattern as the bodice and attach the skirt to it.
