1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Star Wars sheet jammies on: October 06, 2005 08:08:59 PM
A simple gift for the darling husband. Well loved Star Wars sheets turned into the softest pajama shorts! If you look closely you can see where the dog tried to help and flipped my fabric over. The back of one leg says " idej eht fo nruter", just under Darth Vader.Ooops.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Too cute for craftster on: October 06, 2005 08:03:16 PM
This is awfully precious and non- funky, but I saw the paper doll fabric and had to make something out of it. So my mother's neighbor was turning 5 and I whipped out a simple A line dress for her. The fabric is soooo adorable it's heartbreaking. The matching fabric has the dolls in their pettycoats and their clothes with tabs and all on it as a solid pattern. She is getting pajamas out of the fabric set in pink as soon as I have a few spare days. It's a bad thing to like WalMart - but I can't help it when they have stuff like this.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Captain Hook Help - Simplicity# 4923 *finished pics* on: September 28, 2005 06:32:01 AM
I need moral support and technical help please. My husband decided to be Captain Hook for Halloween. I told him No Problem. I've worked Renn faires and did the SCA and Sci Fi con thing for awhile. I'm good at costumes. I'm NOT good at patterns.  This one scares me to death. It doesn't seem to be a "costumey" pattern. The pattern was priced at $15.95 (thank God for half off ). The jacket alone is going to take 7 yards of expensive fabric, and this is going to need extensive alterations because of my husbands huge shoulders and long arms.I've never done set in sleeves before - that's why I like Renn costyuming, when in doubt tie it on. A mistake will cost big$$.
Has anyone ever used this and can tell me that everything will be fine? I'm just about afraid to start. I'm doing a muslin first. EEk!
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Dead Milkmen Punk Rock Girl Paper Doll on: August 18, 2005 05:47:19 AM
I just wanted to share this. I loved this kind of thing "back in the day" and can't believe I just stumbled across it. It makes me think of Skater Boys and Jolt Cola. Take a peek.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / My Tiki Bedroom ( My first post- be nice) on: July 19, 2005 05:12:16 PM
My husband and I need a fun bedroom. Kitchy, retro, not too girly. Sooooo Tiki it is. I only have a few items here and not the entire room.
This is Dolly the nightlight. She's not technically crafty. I just dressed her. But she is the COOLEST thing ever. She is a maidenform bra and girdle display model with a lightbulb in her belly that makes her glow. My husband used her as decoration when he DJ'd. I think she looks better dressed. The scarf around her waist glows blue.


A $5 yardsale dresser. Painted bright high gloss retro turquoise. I just painted some nifty tiki guys on the drawers with craft acrylics. I have one drawer left to do, but we needed the storage space before I was done. We have a second cast away dresser painted the same blue that I have yet to add tiki guys to.  I am waiting and searching for the perfect drawer pulls. Id do my own, but have no fimo talents.

Lastly, the tiki pillow. I just threw him together one night. He pops much more in real  ife. A single row of machine stitching over a thin layer of quliters batting give his face a 3-D effect.  Hes just a lopsided rectangle with ears sewn into the seams.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / How to paint a mirror tiki bar sign on: July 12, 2005 11:10:45 AM
My husband brought home a very large "curb rescued" framed mirror in great shape. I opened my mouth and told him it would be no problem to paint it up as a bar sign for his fantasy Tiki Lounge. I've got a design, but I dont know what kind of paint to use. I dont want to do faux stained glass with this design, but I'm not sure if regular acrylic won't look flat and reflect wierdly. I also will have to clean this. Has anyone had any experience with glass paints that you dont have to bake on? Sorry if this has been covered somewhere else, but I looked and couldn't find anything. Thanks!!
