1  Fantasy creature pumpkins in Halloween Decor and Parties by kimbleshi on: November 01, 2013 03:24:28 PM
Phoenix, unicorn, dragon and hydra. Approx 2 hours to carve each pumpkin - some a little more, some a little less. Phoenix took the longest - all those darn feathers!
Group shot:




The Hydra had 5 heads, all joined at the centre and wrapping around the pumpkin

I'm pleased with my pumpkins this year - just wanted to show them off a bit! I didn't get very many trick or treaters to show them off to...

I GOT A DEATH OF RATS!!!! Straight from the Wist! He's Beautiful!  Grin Grin

He's even got a scythe! Adorable! I love his blue eyes!

I also got Uncle Charles - "the Luggage's favourite relative!" On the underside are lots of feet.

You can open him up - ooh quilted effect - and there's a wizard inside.

You close him and open him again and the wizard is gone! It's a really neat flippy thing that I've seen but never understood how it works!
(look at the tongue!)

One last altogether post:

This also shows my lovely letter giving the back story of Uncle Charles who "enjoys a good meal in the company of a wizard with flavour".

Thank you for a brilliant first swap Grin I love everything and Death of Rats is going to be my lucky mascot for when I move!

4  First sewing project: A dress for a ball. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kimbleshi on: July 04, 2010 04:25:13 AM
Hi everyone, this is my first ever item of clothing I have made and also the second time using a sewing machine. I decided to make my life incredibly difficult and make the pattern myself. Of course that wasn't insane enough for my liking and I had limited fabric available (Cambridge has no fabric shops other than John Lewis and I'm not rich enough to shop there yet!) so I decided to team the velvet fabric that I had with some T-shirts from Primark...
Lots of people told me it was mad. I agreed. I also ran out of time as I went on a course for the week preceding the ball so ended up finishing the dresss (sort of Roll Eyes) about an hour before it was worn out! I didn't have the time to hem the bottom but luckily the t-shit fabric seems fine without it and the velvelt is also holding up fairly well so far!


Action shot:

All in all I'm immensely pleased by it as lots of people were surprised to find out that I had made it Cheesy and it didn't fall apart at all!

Lessons learnt for next time:
  • Buy a pattern.
  • Buy proper fabric.
  • Have enough time to attempt insane project.
  • Start off by sewing very simple things!!
  • Pins are probably my friends and I should learn how to use them.

Thanks for looking and any advice on pinning is appreciated!
