1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Zombie Care Bear on: November 01, 2009 05:10:38 PM
This Halloween, I wanted to be something unique and at least somewhat creepy.  I think I succeeded, haha.

I made everything from scratch.  The mask was made by making a shape out of tinfoil and adding paper mache and paint.  I used white fishnet stockings for the eye holes.  The costume was made from some pink fake fur and a McCall's pattern.

I altered the pattern due to some size issues, and I added the blood and middle white patch with the brain.  I also added a tail and care bear heart to the back, but sadly I do not have a picture of that.

For the bone arm, I just used paper mache again.  The costume was so roomy that I could easily keep my other arm inside. 

I tried hiding behind some bushes to scare trick-or-treaters, but when I jumped up, they were more disturbed than scared, haha.

I had a lot of fun making this costume, but it was so hot to wear!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Burda Style Naomi Jacket - help? on: March 09, 2009 05:48:01 PM
I was just wondering if anyone has made this before.  I am finding the instructions very difficult!  I think I have the jacket front and back facings attached, and now I'm step 4- princess seams and pocket openings and am completely stuck!

If anyone can help me out, I'd really appreciate it.  Thanks Smiley

I started with this one: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271194.0, and used the same pattern to make these ones. 

Next up, I hope to make some clutch-style purses using frames. Smiley

7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Silhouette Pillow :) on: August 13, 2008 08:16:13 PM
I just finished this tonight and am really pleased with how it turned out.  It looks a little bulgy in the photos because I didn't have the right sized pillow form.

I recently made this for someone.  It was her idea to add the scroll and I think it turned out nicely. Smiley  (sorry for the not-so-great photos, I had bad lighting, and the plastic is shiny)

Thanks for looking!

Hello all,
just thought I'd share some of my new jewelry...

Now that we've got all of the earrings out of the way, how about a necklace?

thanks for looking!
