1  My Bedroom Wall in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by hmonster on: February 16, 2011 10:50:16 AM
I don't know what you did as a kid, but when I was little my favorite thing was to scribble all over a piece of paper and then color in the spaces. I basically took that concept and blew it up for my wall. I decided a while ago I wanted my room green as grass, I finally decided to paint my room, but then I realized I didn't want all green. I'm not sure wither it was me or my mom who originally proposed the idea but the idea for a crazy wall, but someone did and the crazy wall was born! Fist I painted the wall white, then I went crazy with a pencil and drew all the lines for painting. I had a lot of erasing and redrawing, but eventually I got it where I wanted it. I added little pieces going off to the other wall to keep it from being too one dimensional.  From there all I did was get paint samples and mix them white or other colors to make similar colors. My favorites were the ones I mixed with a shiny glossy white, it made the paint shimmery and it was very cool Smiley it took me and my mom about a month of painting. We only slowly worked on it cause I was in the middle of school. After all the gaps were filled in I bought pin striping, the one you get to put on you car, and outlined all my original pencil lines with it. This really made the colors pop and finished it off nicely Smiley

Here is a progress shot

If your wondering what i'm standing on, its my water bed frame, the actual bed/mattress thingy was folded up so it wouldn't get paint on it.

Oh yeah we also added black dots to the wall, but it kind of made them look like fish. I left one or two up but put the rest on other random places in my room Smiley hehe

Here is a shot of the right side of the wall

Here is a shot of the left side

I also had a little tiny bit going up to the ceiling but I didn't take a picture of it Tongue

Well I hope you like it, I know I do!

2  More baggy dresses transformed into a well fitted cute dresses. Lots of pictures in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by hmonster on: February 16, 2011 10:02:32 AM
So I wanted something cute to wear for Valentines day and I was in the mood for sewing... so fast forward a few days later and voila! Two perfect dresses for Valentines day and the rest of the summer!


This is the mu-mu I bought originally for my Valentines dress. I had cut the first line in it when I realized I wanted a pic of it's ugliness first  Grin

This is the best shot I have of the dress all done, it was super late and so the only light I could have on with out bothering people was my bathroom light and my mirror wasn't long enough to show the dress... hence the weird angle.  Undecided

I copied this dress pattern from the tutorial here on Craftster for the dragon print dress... I have no idea where it is I should probably go find it >< Well until I find the link I'll just describe it. The original dragon dress was made by a lovely girl who had this crazy dragon material and who is an amazing sewer and tailor, she is here somewhere in the threads. Great description right  Tongue


Here is ugly dress number two that I found. I realized that I had to wear a dress made of this material for valentines day despite all the hard work poured into the first dress. This second dress was just twisting my arm I didn't have a choice!
And yes my ceiling is red. we are a colorful family and don't believe in the color white for walls Tongue

This is the finished dress! It turned out so cute!! I know the pic quality is not the greatest, but bear with me! I used a Vogue  pattern I have had in my pattern stash for a while, I have no Idea what the pattern number is (i'm terrible at this huh) I decided to use some black material to break up some of the crazy color in the dress and I think it brings it down to earth with out taking away from the pattern, but that's just me. I really like the result its fun and swirly and reminds me a bit of the 70's.  Cheesy

This is a close up of the fabric. Isn't it great.

So anyways those are my Valentines dresses, I really like them Smiley

3  HELP I have a quilt top but it keeps bunching when I try and sew it all together in Quilting: Discussion and Questions by hmonster on: January 04, 2011 11:19:02 AM

Here is my beautiful quilt (this is a picture I took right before I sewed all the pieces together). I have the batting and the back and every thing else, just when I try and sew it it bunches up and looks ugly and unprofessional, Im trying to do simple straight lines because I don't know how to use the quilting foot on my Bernina >< any suggestions?
