11  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Knitted wedding dress fiber question on: March 25, 2012 11:01:16 AM
 So I'm not engaged or even close but like every girly-girl  I comb through wedding magazines and such for "future reference"  I always planned on making my own wedding dress, but I never thought about knitting one...til I stumbled on this pattern
http://www.interweave.com/images/imagesknit/img_knit/Wedding_Gown.pdf

My question is what other fibers could I use to create the floaty lace effect besides wool? (wool doesn't seem summery to me) I was thinking silk or rayon, maybe bamboo. I just don't have enough lace knitting experience to gauge lightness.

I'm searching for an electric rug punch. The home crafter kind not the industrial $5000 kind
on a web search I pulled up three. but they sold in 2008 on ebay and etsy.
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Birch tree accent wall help on: February 27, 2012 08:39:35 AM
I love Once Upon a Time on ABC and the mayors black and white office. we're looking for a new house and I want to have the wall behind our bed covered in birch trees. on ebay they have some stick on decals and a really expensive mural. I was wondering of any of you guys had other ideas or sources. I don't want to paint a whole birch forest since we are renting and I'd want to take it with me.
14  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Disney Princess dresses on: December 27, 2011 02:08:42 PM
My boyfriends 3 year old little girl loves dresses, princesses and Disney. The ones in the stores are to cheap looking and poorly made. So for Christmas I made her four dresses to go with the matching doll.

Most of the fabric is reconned.



Sleeping Beauty's dress. Made in an hour on Christmas eve morning. the organza and the liner for the skirt was a David's bridal cast-off from goodwill and the bodice lining is from a botched dye job




Cinderella  I finished this dress in October the bodice is cotton velvet from my Great Grandmother, the outer skirt is from an old prom dress and the lining is acetate from walmart.



Belle's dress is made out of a yellow egyptian cotten sheet from a thrift store.




Snow White, the skirt is the same egptian cotton as Belle's dress only dyed darker and the bodice is alot of odds&ends from my stash

All of the dresses are big on purpose so she can have them for a couple of years.

16  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Zombie Hello Kitty watercolor on: December 16, 2011 01:18:31 PM


For christmas gifts for my friends we all decided on a $5 limit. I wanted it to still be personal and special
One of my friends is obsessed with Hello Kitty.


 
I cheated and pulled an image off google enlarged it and traced it off my laptop screen.

I'm making my boyfriends three year old daughter wearable versions of Disney Princess costumes. I have already started Belle, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. I found this art print of Snow White while searching for inspiration

Any tips would be appreciated
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Zombie hand night light and foot (Pic heavy) on: October 15, 2011 09:09:54 AM
 I was inspired by this post  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=360326.0
The foot looked cool the way it came but the hand needed a little something... Being a Zombie lover I decided to paint it.




I got two LED nightlights for about $4


Took the cap off


And cut a small hole on the body parts


the LED fit in the hole perfectly so I didnt have to use hot glue.
19  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Modified Toddler Airspeeds on: October 14, 2011 02:26:33 PM

 My boyfriends daughter had these shoes but couldn't wear them cuz the velcro would come undone every couple of steps.  I like them too much too just throw them away so I brainstormed of ways to fasten it that I had in my stash.
I completely removed the top part and the velcro teeth and hand stiched some elastic scraps.

After


Going to test drive them this weekend
20  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / $1.99 For a rockin' dress and skirt. on: October 08, 2011 12:35:45 PM
I got this fabric at Joann's for $1.99 for one yard. I didn't know what I was gonna do with it til princess saw it and called it a "cinderelly dress".  I used a dress from her closet for a rough pattern and got to work.
This is the worst fabric EVER Cry Even with the thinest needle and thinb rayon thread it shredded on every stich setting and tension adjustment. But I sucked it up and finished in about three hours.
I had enough fabric to make a skirt for my roomate's daughter.




      I made it into a bubble skirt using a polyester tank i had lying around cuz even on the best of days I hate hemming.





  Fabric close up
