1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: huge "segment of the giant void sky" skirt into retro housewife dress on: February 28, 2010 05:10:19 PM
I like this because
1) It is a color I wear a lot
2) I like a nice circley skirt
3) you look a little bit like me!!
Great job!

I think your project looks great! I think I prefer it to a lot of supposedly "wearable" art that I've seen in books etc. The fact that there aren't 10 million colors and things hanging off of it brings out the craftsmanship nicely. Hooray!

Dorodango!!  I made one about a year ago and it turned out pretty cool. I didn't get it realllly shiny but enough that the surface has a nice gloss to it. I pretty much just followed the instructions in Craft magazine. Finding good clean dirt was a little difficult so I recommend coming up with some sort of sieving system to remove chunks and get a nice consistency. I used some wire mesh stretched over a picture frame (previously used for paper-making). Good luck and post pics!

5  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: what do YOU do with your scraps? on: December 06, 2008 03:27:32 PM
I've used scraps to make quilt squares. If you google "string quilting" or "strip quilting" you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about. Basically you cut your scraps into long, thin "strings" or strips and sew them together to make a stripey quilt square. I made nine and put them together for a pillow and am working some more now. You can do a lot of fun stuff like combining different patterns all in one color scheme or making squares that "fade" from dark to light colors. And there is always regular "crazy quilting" where you make squares with odd sized pieces of fabric going every which way. Have fun!

Love it. If you really like embroidered bugs, check out Annamieke Mein's work (just google her name) It will totally knock your socks off! I got a book from my local library with pictures of her work and was very inspired. Keep up the bug-tacular work!

Great job! I started worked on a stuffed beetle recently and your post has inspired me to keep going!

Maybe you could buy the brocade in a different color (like yellow or something) and bleach it? Then you might end up with an off-white but not super snow white color. Good luck!
