Thank-you! I appreciate the feedback. Teaching yourself to sew is a daunting task. Smiley

Thanks for the posting and the review! It's awesome that you are sharing your experiences with others that may want to try the same thing.
I know what you mean about projects that you kind of rush through, and then end up not liking...that's the funny thing with sewing, hey? Sometimes you worry too much about the end result and not enough about the process of getting there.

What an awesome shirt. I love the fabric as well, and the style looks fantastic on you. Great job! Did you use a pattern or did you design it yourself?

and from the back...

Yay! My first pair of undies, and my first sewing project using a pattern.
A more detailed description of what I did (and some better pics) can be found on my website.

Any comments, suggestions? The fabric was free but I think it actually ended up looking pretty fun  Smiley

Great job! I'm really impressed by the evenness of your hand stitching. And cute fabric! Great job Smiley I'm working on making undies now too, and it's proving more challenging than I had expected.

So many awesome swaps, so little time!!! I would love to do this but I'm already doing a swap and I'm worried about stretching myself too thin. I'll keep an eye on it though, and thanks to all the swap organizers on this site. You guys are amazing!  Smiley
28  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / The Swap Gallery / Re: Canadian Envelope Swap Winter Edition! Gallery! on: December 21, 2010 09:21:12 PM
This is the package that I sent:

I'm feeling now that it wasn't full enough  Undecided but it's my first swap, so I wasn't quite sure about what was expected. I thought sticking to the envelope size was super important, but now I wish I had cheated a little! It's some photos that I took, some caramels that I made, some jewelry, lace, and a bow for crafting, some festive bits and bobs, and some seeds from my Mexican Hat plants.

My partner's envelope (Mermaid Cafe). It's awesome and I loved it!

As you can see, she stuffed her envelope a little more than I did! My stepson snagged the balloon right away, and we are planning on using all the awesome stickers for card making on Christmas eve. The jewelry bits are great, I love the little lizard! And the festive clutch is awesome and I will fully be making use of it this holiday season.
Thanks again for organizing this swap!
29  COOKING / Dessert / Trifilicious - A New Dessert Creation with Mini-Tute on: December 20, 2010 10:01:29 AM
I have been on a candy making binge this Christmas season, and for the most part I have been very successful. However, one fudge recipe didn't set properly and so I couldn't give it away as gifts. So, instead I decided to use the delicious fudge and make a trifle!

Here's a mini-tute, in case you want to try it:
It was time consuming but not that difficult, since the fudge was already made:

1 (12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch pieces**
1 (14 oz.) can condensed milk
1 1/2 c. tiny marshmallows
2/3 c. chunk style peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped peanuts
In saucepan, combine butterscotch pieces, milk, and marshmallows. Melt and remove from heat. Beat in peanut butter, vanilla, and dash of salt. Stir in nuts. Pour in buttered 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Chill and cut in squares. Makes 4 dozen. Store in refrigerator.

**To make the fudge "not work", use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of butterscotch
Let it set in the fridge overnight.Then, bake a cake (I just used a french vanilla box cake) in two parts. Use the first part as the bottom and then spread the fudge over it. Now, this won't look pretty. The cake will probably fall apart and the fudge won't spread well. That is okay  Wink
Then the next layer of cake, then the toppings! I used fresh whipped cream and frozen strawberries (strawberries are not in season this time of year, so I had to make do, although fresh of course would be better) and spread it evenly and thickly over the top.
I did this in a cake pan, but you can also do it in a bowl for the more appropriate "trifle effect".

(You can sort of see my son in the background, with his little fingers waiting to dip in the whipped cream!)

This dessert is awesome. Expensive and time consuming, but awesome. I highly recommend it for a party or get together as it's rich, tasty, and will feed a lot of people.

I lied, I'm not actually adding more pictures  Smiley It's probably picture heavy enough already.
Please let me know if you have any further questions!
