11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Giselle Enchanted dress pattern on: June 28, 2008 03:07:20 PM
I found a couple of adult sized butterick patterns that are similar



And it seems that dress is very similar to the Regency period style of dresses, so I did a search of historical Regency costumes and found this site that had a childrens costume


The first costume on the page, called High Waisted Dress. The only difference is this dress doesn't have the split skirt. I'm not much of a sewer, but I don't think it would be too hard to split the front of this pattern and then make a simple underdress, or make an attached panel to go behind the split. Anyhow, good luck! And I think that dress is gorgeous so I hope you can make it for the little one!

I found a pic that shows the top of the skirt, so maybe you can figure out from there how its put together.
14  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: has this happened to you?....cause i am slowly being burried by my crafts on: June 22, 2008 12:00:32 PM
A few things that I use:
1. for yarn I use one of those over the door shoe organizers. You can see the yarn through the clear pockets and you can hang it on a wall, over the door, or from a closet rod.
2. if you have the wall space, a pegboard for scissors, pliers (if you use them in beading) and other tools.
3. clear plastic stackable boxes and a label maker will be your best friend. You can put all your bath stuff together in one, embroidery stuff in another etc. and then just pull out whichever box has the craft you want to work on. and throw everything back in the box when you're done.
4. I don't know how "organized and efficient" this is, but I have several totebags I use for WIPs. Especially crochet or embroidery because I can keep all the yarn, hooks, and pattern in the bag together (and thus keep it away from the kitties) and I just hang the bag from one of several hooks on the wall.
5. I was given some hardware organizers by my Grandpa that I cleaned up and use for bead storage. They are basically boxes with little clear drawers across the front (about 5 drawers across, 4 rows of drawers) I can see the beads through the fronts and can seperate them by color, size, etc. and another clear stackable box for the wire, elastic, etc.

I only have an armoir in my bedroom and some space in my huge walk in for craft storage and use the living room to actually craft, so even though I try to stay organized, the crafty stuff still ends up taking over the house. Hope my tips helped and I'll try to find some pics to help you see what I'm talking about.

Good luck! I'm sure others will have better suggestions...
15  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! on: June 17, 2008 12:48:00 PM
I have really enjoyed reading everyone's ideas here, as well as looking at everyone's tats on the other two mega threads...My idea I have been throwing around is a Tudor Rose, like this one:
http://www.slippydog.co.uk/tudor/kingsandqueens/tudor_rose.jpg And I have found a local artist who does really beautiful floral tattoos. I was thinking this because I am a history major and the Renaissance is my absolute favorite period. I'm particularly in love with the Italian Ren. and plan to do a more elaborate one incorporating some of my favorite Italian artists (or maybe just one artist. I haven't worked it out yet) But, I thought for my first tattoo I should do something a little simpler. My other obsession is Tudor England. Especially Henry VIII and his daughters. So, I thought this would be fitting and pretty as well, and hopefully something I won't tire of later. I'm not sure about placement and size, so I just wondered what you all thought of the concept and any recommendations on placement. Thanks!

Whew! I'm so glad you like everything, Frogger! I was afraid the towel wouldn't be your style. And I'm glad the cozies fit your mug!

And here are the pics of Frogger's super sweet package! I only have my cell camera currently and I had to take them tonight, so the lighting could be better, so if you have better pics, Frogger, please post yours too.

Here's everything all together, a green cabled cozy that perfectly fits and matches my favorite little travel mug, another really pretty purply ribbed cozy that I think will be perfect with my other mug, some delicious smelling coffee from a local shop near Frogger (the bag says they roast it in the shop...that is soo cool and I bet that place smells great) And...best thing ever! An awesome tea wallet with Gnomes! That's right, friends, she said she hunted everywhere to get me that fabric with little gnomes pushing wheelbarrows of mushrooms. Absolutely fabulous! I love it so much I've been carrying it around with me for the past two days!

And here is a close up of the green cozy around my fave mug (the mug is a small one...meant for kids I think, but perfect for espresso, so the cozy is normal sized, not gigantic like the pic makes it seem. Makes it even better that it does fit the little mug. And see how perfect the colors match?)

And of course I had to get a close up of the Gnomes:

I love everything Frogger! Thank you soo much!

That cozy is amazing! I've always wanted to try freeform crochet...that really makes me wish I could!

I received from Frogger and I love, love, LOVE everything!! Thank you soooo much Frogger!! Double thanks for being so understanding about my situation! I haven't been able to send out yet because I had school stuff come up and I was expecting to be finished with the swap sooner...totally my fault and I feel really horrible, especially after receiving such an awesome package...I can only hope what I send will be worth the wait...So far everyone's stuff is so amazing!! I like that tent! The flag is too cute! and he colors of the last cozies are really nice. Frogger is the best partner! I will be posting piccies as soon as I can get them snapped!

Oh my gosh! These are fantastic! I really love the felted octopus! And the chicken on that towel is too cute! Beetastic, your teapot is so cute and that cozy matches it so perfectly! Now I'm feeling pretty anxious about my stuff! (And I think I may have typed too many exclamation marks, but I guess I'm just excited...)
