Here are pics of me in the costume Halloween night.  I made the belt with red beads and a Twink doll.

how do you keep yours from flipping over though?  i made a set and for some reason they always end up upside down, no matter how i tie them.

Hmmm... the only way I could see that happening is if you have your straps attatched to the center too close together.  I spaced my straps apart from eachother, and they held right-side-up just fine!

gorgeous dress~!
I also have a lot of problems with my sewing machine. A lot of the time it makes a dying noise and gets a lot of thread jammed in the bobbin bit (and I mean a lot)...it's the thread from the top too. The thread from the top also pops out of the needle just as I start sewing and I tend not to notice until I'm halfway through. As well as this, sometimes, the top of the stitching is fine, but the back is really loose and messy. If you need pictures of the first and latter problems, I can do that when I get the problems again. All I know about my machine is that it's called "Silver"  and it's a bit rubbish. Undecided

OMGOSH!! i thought i was the only one.. but the exact thing happens to me as well.. and all i know about my machine is that its a brother one... and its pretty new , so im scared. but i've noticed mine only makes a dying noise with some fabrics.. other times its fine.. but the bobbin thing tends to happen a lot.. and the tension on my machine is definitely screwed up... i thought it was too loose, so i adjusted the dial thingy and then it became worse, so i re-adjusted it and it got even WORSE.... so.. mehh.. i need help toO.. im basically still a noob to this whole sewing thing and i have NO idea wat to do about it..

Ok guys, ditto, ditto, and ditto!!!  Those things ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME.  As for the thread coming out right when you start sewing, it's because the needle goes upwards and the thread gets pulled out.  Always hold the ends of your thread down with your hand until you get a few stitches going.  As for the mess underneath and the loose threads, this is due to the tension not being set correctly for the type of fabric or the type of stitch, but I never have ANY IDEA what the right tension setting is because no one ever taught me.

Sorry the type is SO SMALL but I can't get my pic to be any bigger- photobucket keeps resizing it.  If you just right click and save the pics, then open them using windows picture and fax viewer, you can zoom in and read the writing better.

Ok, here are the wings I made for my Rainbow Brite fairy costume.  These took me forever and they aren't perfect, but I am done messing with them.

Materials you need:

-Pantyhose (I got queen size to make sure they were big enough),
-Wire (bought mine at Lowe's- you want it thick enough that it won't bend easily, thicker than a hanger)
-Needle-nose pliers and wire cutters
-Paper and pencil
-feathers and plastic jewels
-hot glue and superglue
-needle and thread (I used button/carpet thread)
-something to make straps from (ribbon or elastic...)
-trim if you want to edge your wings

You could also paint and jewel the back of the wings, but I'm too lazy.  I don't mind what shows through the back though.

Tada!!!  I really think I want to take off the ribons hanging down though.

where'd you get the heart fabric for the skirt?

I took the heart fabric off of a curtain from a thrift store.
