1  Re: Tim Burton Halloween Party in Party Planning by rottonpear on: October 03, 2005 02:09:37 AM
I just recently had a tim burton party for my flatwarming/birthday.
I went decorating mad, here are just a few photos:

Nightmare arch with beetle juice cockroaches all round the living room and kitchen walls. (you can also see part of the graveyard down the hallway)

Nightmare gate on bathroom door.

JACK SKELLINGTON! He got pretty wasted by the end of the night, poor fella got squashed under some passed out guy.

There was a whole heap more decorations but I don't think I took photos, because I am a drunken dork.

Hey...I have finished my straps and am now putting it together...and i was wondering what "Pin gusset around outside edge of back piece with RS together, with the center seam of gusset at center bottom of back" meant ...i am totally confused on the putting together part...but hopefully i will figure it out...oh and i didn't know what this meant either " use backstitch to seam 1/2'' from edge, snadwiching the straps between gusset and back piece at the same time"... i didn't know what to do there because my straps aren't n e where near being sandwiched! UGH how confusing!!! Thanks for the help though! =)

I'll TRY and explain a bit better....

"Pin gusset around outside edge of back piece with RS together...."
So you get length of the  gusset peice and pin it all the way around the perimetre of the back peice, with the  right sides of each peice facing each other.

"...with the center seam of gusset at center bottom of back"
When you place the gusset around the back peice, do it so the two ends of the gusset meet up at the bottom of the back peice (that way, when it's finished,  your gusset seam will be slightly more hidden at the bottom of the bag).

"use backstitch to seam 1/2'' from edge..."
So your sewing in backstich 1/2 an inch away from the perimetre of the backpeice/gusset.

"...sandwiching the straps between gusset and back piece at the same time"
You need to place the straps inbetween the gusset and the back peice.

This has probably confused you even more, it's confusing me at least. Hopefully this' beautiful' paint diagram will help...

This is my version of the 'punk rock' backpack, infact it is the original punk rock backpack!

I have the greedy motif floating around my computer somewhere if anyone wants to use it, and heaps of other cartoon motifs if anyone is looking for ideas for their image.
I'm so stoaked there's a knit-a-long for it! weeee!

These are the dolls that I had when I was little, I've even kept every single little one of their acsessories!

I've found it hard to find any decent paper dolls around the place. The only things I've found are sticker versions that are japanese anime style.
