1  Re: The Gorgeous Choker Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by nasty_wench on: August 04, 2008 08:43:21 AM
Hey Cayca, the choker closes with a hoop and toggle.

Well I just picked up my package from grannystylee and it is BEAUTIFUL!!!

A sweet card made by her buddy & a cute felt clothespin made by grannystylee.

Yummy laminated vegan recipes from grannystylee's personal stash (we're both vegan), one of her handmade fabric bird broach and a neat felt cupcake pouch.

And the piece de resistance... the beaded crocheted choker! Made in colours that I love! This will match like 90% of my dress up clothes.

Thank you so much!!!!

I am far from a regular figured woman and I made two skirts from the book so far. They're both the Beach Wrap Skirt. I modified the second to have less of a flare at the bottom.

I love this book beyond words. The description tells you how to measure yourself then apply this to fabric for a custom tailored look.

These skirts were both made from vintage sheets I found at the thrift store.

Sorry the photos are a bit blurry. I should have used more natural light.

4  How to I love glitter? Let me count the ways: glitter deer, lemons, limes... in Winter Holidays by nasty_wench on: December 19, 2007 08:27:46 AM
Totally loving these ornaments.

The deer are for friends of mine.

The lemons and limes are to go with a bottle of limoncello for a family member.

Want directions? Check out Martha.

5  Paperdoll Dress (Felty Frock) *w/photos* in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by nasty_wench on: December 18, 2007 02:27:13 AM
In Therese Laskey's book, Softies Simple Instructions for 25 Plush Pals, there is a pattern I just adore.

It's Alicia Paulson (Posie Gets Cozy) for her Paperdoll Dress.

I made one that I stuffed (not pictured here), then I made two un-stuffed varieties.

They are the neatest non-holiday ornaments ever. Although I think Christmas ones would be cool.

Love the colours on this one.

This one's totally Ice Princess, no?

The patten is super-fun to customise too!

I made a couple of the ornaments today. I really like them, but I didn't have the exact materials to make them with. So, they don't look as stunning as brubendall's, but I adore them regardless!

One's for my sister, the other for my bff.

7  St. Lucia's Day, Santa Lucia Doll *w/photo* in Winter Holidays by nasty_wench on: December 03, 2007 02:25:46 PM
Yay! I got my St. Lucia/ Santa Lucia Doll Kit from Posie Gets Cozy today.

I had already started to make a batch of them and well, I got one finished this morning.

If you're interested, Alica Paulson has the directions listed here:rosylittlethings.typepad.com/posie_gets_cozy/2006/12/santa_lucia_dol.html

Totally perfect Christmas decoration or even better, gift!

P.S. Sorry about the sucky photo quality.

8  Super Cute Business Card Holders *w/photo* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by nasty_wench on: December 01, 2007 10:13:10 PM
Did you see the neat business card holder pattern from Blueprint Magazine?

Take a look at them here: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=d3a1b003cc9a5110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextchannel=bd5e1eec2c7ee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&rsc=collage_crafts_celebration-crafts_p8&lnc=bd5e1eec2c7ee010VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD

I loved the idea, but as a firm believer in animal rights, I refuse to work with leather.

So... presenting the happy vegetarian's version:

I used cute patterned fabric and fusible interfacing and tiny snaps for my version. But if you want to make one too, the pattern and template are on Martha's Blueprint site listed above.

I made a bunch for Christmas. I'm going to make calling cards for my friends and family and tuck them inside. Very inexpensive too.

Well, I finished stringing the bonbon garland tonight. And I must say, it was much easier than I had anticipated.

The only change I'd suggest is this: instead of hot gluing the part that's twist, I'd try using a small piece of a twist tie. I think that would be so very much easier. And it would be faster, and no hot glue burns... yippee!!

Here's the completed garland. It's about 6 feet long.

10  Christmas bonbon garland *w/photo* in Winter Holidays by nasty_wench on: November 14, 2007 11:20:08 PM
I'm just about ready to string these "bonbons" together.

I had seen candy garlands before, but I'm not sure if I'd seen the made like this:

Styrofoam ball, wrapped in fabric, hot glued then tied with bits of fabric.

It's for the Ga Ga for Garland Swap I'm in.

Just one question, does anybody know if it'd be better to string through the Styrofoam ball, or just sew the ends of the "wrappers" together?
