1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Thor-some T-shirt (embellished tank top) on: May 07, 2012 02:38:58 AM
So, Avengers Assemble is out, and I am excited beyond belief. Now, though, what is the appropriate way to celebrate that? By dressing up as a superhero when you go and see the movie, of course!  Grin

please ignore the marks on my mirror!

That's the thought process that led to this outfit - it's just a basic black tank that I've added four shiny silver discs to. The discs have been chain stitched in from the edges to add a bit of extra ooomph to it, then attached to the tank top - it was all handswen. I've paired it with a red cardigan to represent the cape, which sort of shows that I've thought way too much about this outfit Tongue

I do know there should be six shiny silver discs, but I ran out of time  Grin I rarely handsew, and I'm seeing the film (again) on Monday (today!), after starting this on Sunday night. I'm impressed that it's as complete as it is, to be honest!

Also, Chocolate_Jo has made a wonderful Iron Man T-shirt that I would encourage you to check out Cheesy it's here
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: I am IRON MAN. WOMAN. Actually its just a t-shirt...BUT! (shiny!) on: May 02, 2012 12:09:03 PM
This is amazing!* It lights up! It's so cool! How did you do the arc reactor? It looks kinda like a nightlight  Huh

Also, as I live in GB, I can confirm that the Avengers is really really awesome!

other than the fact that I'm gonna look like a total copycat if I do manage to make my Thor t-shirt now Tongue (I am seeing it again on Monday)
3  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Re: Giant Star Quilt on: January 06, 2012 03:10:12 PM
Well, I think I've just found the pattern for the next quilt I'm going to make! I've always loved the look of the star quilts, but never been able to face the thought of making star block upon star block upon star block... This looks like the best way to fix that!

I also think the fabrics you've chosen work really well, as the big prints don't get too overwhelming when used in big areas like that. Congratulations on your quilt, it's wonderful and I hope your aunt and uncle loved it.
4  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Re: Brown Dragon plate on: August 30, 2011 03:32:18 PM
I have no idea how glass crafts are done, but I can tell that took a SERIOUS amount of work! I am impressed!

It looks so good as well - I love how the whiskers are done.
5  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Re: puffin brooch on: June 25, 2011 02:53:34 PM
In that last picture, could you give an idea of scale? It looks huuuuge!  Shocked (I am assuming they're floorboards though...)

As always, it's fantastic, although I see what you mean about it being busy.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Be still my crafty wooden heart! *sigh* on: June 24, 2011 12:38:18 PM
Oh, that's so sweet! It looks like it goes really well with the rest of the beads, too.
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Pride Maille on: June 22, 2011 03:23:26 PM
Oh, they are FANTASTIC. I thought they were pride when I clicked on the thumbnail, but at the same time, they don't scream "PRIDE!" at you. They're really classy.

My two favourites are the Byzantium weaves. They just look really, really intricate (not a jewellery person Cheesy).

This may be slightly off-topic, but are you going to the Pride festival (and planning to wear these) or did you just make them in support?
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Re: Scrapbooked calendar pages on: June 05, 2011 02:39:10 PM
Sometimes simple is better! You wouldn't want to detract from the photo with loads of glitzy embellishments, would you?  Grin

That DIY calendar idea sounds really good as well Smiley
9  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: The (new) Etsy critique thread! on: June 05, 2011 12:10:45 PM

I actually think you're underpricing yourself - especially those state pins! I know that may seem counter intuitive, but are you covering the cost of materials?
I must confess that I don't have an etsy shop and I just clicked on to browse people's shops Smiley my advice may actually be rubbish!
10  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Wants My Dress on: June 05, 2011 09:28:15 AM
I am assuming that they found out about her and her dresses on this site. If they are doing their job than they would have seen this thread. Just my opinion. I just find it interesting that the price wasn't stated right at the beginning when they were first interested and only came way after this thread was posted. Most people would want to share exciting news and they might have waited for her to react. PLUS, her initial post was that they were interested in the pop tab dress and NOW it includes both ... they did their homework, trust me.

At the same time, surely by reading this thread they've seen that she's being advised by a large majority to go for far more money than that, and that she has a very vocal, supportive group who are willing to help her get what they (as experts in handmade goods!) see as a fair price?

In that case, it seems counter-productive of them to offer her that money, knowing she would likely post the offer on here and be told "no, no way, that's ridiculously low, do not accept it".

I also think that this thread would have been helpful to Ripley's as well, as people who know lots about handmade and ooak goods are posting their opinions of the "right" price, and justifying it well, and that if they had found this, they may have been better informed and made a better offer.
