1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Costume for a broken leg on: September 22, 2012 12:27:53 PM
I took a short cut down the stairs the other morning, and now have a large cast on my leg, that I probably will be keeping until after Halloween.  So what sort of fun ideas do the creative people of Craftsters have for a costume that involves a broken leg?  I'd like to make it part of the costume, if I can.
2  COOKING / Dessert / Home made chocolate on: August 14, 2011 12:49:35 AM
I tried making my own chocolates yesterday.  They look and taste good, but start melting the moment I take them out of the fridge, and eating them is very messy.  I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong.  We made them with the recipe that came with the products (but I don't think we were too carefull with the measurements):

3 tbsp coco butter
1 tbsp coconutfat
5 tbsp cocopowder
2 tbsp agave juice

Melt the fat and butter.  Mix in the rest.  Add any flavoring might want.  Pour in to forms and refrigerate.

I went to a chocolate demonstration once, and they talked a lot about tempering, but the recipe didn't mention it.  Could that be what we are doing wrong?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Underskirt for wedding dress on: July 19, 2011 05:48:48 AM
I'm making a wedding dress with a quite large skirt.  It's pleated at the waist, and has a bustle, so the hem is approx 3,5 m.  I'm working on drafting the pattern for the underskirt, and am wondering how wide to make it.  It's to be a cotton skirt with tulle over.  Do I make it as wide as the skirt, or somewhat smaller?  I can't seem to agree with myself, so hoping someone here will give me a pointer.
4  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Tulle roses on: July 18, 2011 02:04:39 PM
I'm making a wedding dress and would like to decorate it with large, tulle roses, something like the ones in this picture, only larger: https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/--wX1QSSM3jc/TW7jjj79lkI/AAAAAAAAP04/UQPZ5lF2Dvs/s1600/SatinTulleHB.jpg

Any ideas on how to make them, or links to a tutorial?
