It looks great, it's just a shame the stripes don't show in the worn photos. Do you mind if I ask what you painted the shoes with?

Great idea! I see lots of pillow case skirts and think 'I'd never wear that, that's too small! I never thought to just use a matching pair!

Lovely! I think the crown looks great!

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Miniature Aged Spell Book With (Cheaters) Picture Tutorial (Photo Obese) on: May 23, 2013 01:05:11 AM
I would suggest burning the pages before putting the cover on, it would make it easier to hold! Also, if anyone has a soldering iron, that would work much better than an incense stick, but your idea was very creative! Do you mind if I use your tutorial as a basis for things to sell? I've been wanting to make book necklaces for so long, but I couldn't be bothered cutting and binding all the pages I would need!
6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Re: Making a dress for a plus sized friend, want opinions if this cut will flatter on: February 05, 2013 06:33:14 PM
I would suggest making the straps a triangle, much wider. Sew the wide part of the triangle almost under the armpit, more to the edge of the dress, then sew it until it hits where the strap will normally be attached. This will hide that flabby bit of underarm fat that everyone hates. I would also suggest making a long-short style skirt. One which is longer in the back than in the front. Mid calf in the back and knee length in the front looks nice and you can't really tell that it's a different shape. I have to do this with any short skirts, because I have a ghetto booty kind of bum =P
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Make a tight dress wearable? on: February 05, 2013 05:50:45 PM
Does anyone have picture of this done? I want to try adding triangles to a trenchcoat to make it a lolita silohuette, but i'm not sure how to go about it. I have tried it before on an old skirt but because the skirt was straight to start with, my extra fabric hung too low in the middle and looked weird.
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help! How can I make my shorts longer? on: February 05, 2013 05:41:42 PM
You could try adding lace to the bottoms, or wearing lace tights underneath.
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Re: Gifts to have on hand? on: November 07, 2012 05:05:31 PM
Gals: Purses/bags, jewellery, recipes in a jar are really cool right now (google for inspiration and instructions), beach wraps.

Guys: wallets, knitted beard beanies are really fun, pj pants with a drawstring that makes them almost one size fits all

Generic: handmade notepads, a set of cards with different occaisons (so they have a go-to as well!), recipe books, mug cozies, coasters.

Family: Framed photo, exploding album (an example here: http://www.scrapbookeden.com/expoldingalbum.htm#) just keep the pages empty until you know the recipient!
10  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: Where do you shop Novocastrians? (Thats Newcastle, NSW) on: November 07, 2012 04:47:46 PM
I shop a Go-Lo for a lot of my crafting supplies, the quality is sometimes lower, but the cost is proportionately much lower! I get my glue and scrapbooking papers there, as well as glass containers and embellishments for all sorts of things, their beads are pretty reasonable too, and buying pillows from there is so much cheaper then buying filling from spotlight! For fabric, second hand stores are good for things like denim, and I've heard old bed sheets are great for all kinds of projects (I haven't tried this but I saw a really nice full circle skirt made from a vintage pattern bedsheet)!
