abandonedcouch: then make one...

... make one now! thanks!

Omg, if only. BF has already voiced concerns about my style of decor, which he describes as "mawmaw meets hoarder meets sociopath". I honestly think this would send him through the roof. Which, incidently, kind of makes me want one more.

Alas, I (like everyone else here, apparently) am too squeamish to gut a fish. And also too unskilled to pull this level of awesome off. But if I do give it a try, I'll be sure to share it! I'd actually like to try this on a smaller scale, with a small fish, to put with my seashell collection.

I'm pleased to see that this skirt is still getting the praise it deserves 2 years later, especially since your loved ones gave you some misgivings about it. I'm sure it's been said a thousand times, but this truly is an impressive, daunting, and absolutely lovely work of art you've created.

I love your home renovation posts and occasionally will go back and revisit them when I need some inspiration for I too am blessed/cursed with an old, wackily-constructed house...I think I've even begged to borrow Greg in one of the posts, because everything I've done to it just seems to make it worse and BF is just like, it has a roof and therefore is perfect just leave it alone omg. Anyway, one of the things I admire most about your stuff is your incredibly gutsy use of color, and this skirt is no exception!

And I second what the poster on the page previous to this said about this skirt lifting her spirits...I can't look at it and not grin. It's just so fun!

I am appalled...

...that I don't have something that frigging awesome and amazing to hang on my walls. Seriously. Wow. Just wow.

I'll echo everyone else and say that this is absolutely brilliant. I'd patent that shit if I were you and start selling them before someone sees this and steals your idea. Smiley

Where were you with this stroke of genius about 4 years ago, back when I had a cat that was notorious for this sort of thing?

Omg, this is

I don't even

How did you

Holy shit.

I'm not even into WoW (because I know it'd take over my life if I let it) and I'm rendered speechless by these.
16  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Question about Fabric - Max's wolf pajamas on: October 09, 2009 09:48:15 AM
This might be better suited to the Halloween board, but I have a fabric question so i figured you guys would know.

So, OpeningCeremony has released a supercute and awesome adult-sized set of Wolf Pajamas that are almost identical to the ones Max wore in Where the Wild Things Are.

Only thing is, they're $600 [!!!!!!!]. And even if I could afford such things, they're already sold out. So of course I'm going to attempt to make a set myself.

I was wondering if you guys could tell me what kind of fabric this is? It looks supersoft and I think I had a blanket made out of it once, but I'm at a loss as to what it's called.

Thanks! (Tips for sewing with said fabric would also be much appreciated as I've never sewed much of anything before).

I saw the preview pic on the main page and was like "HOSHIT IS THAT ROBERT DOWNEY JR?"

So yes, I'm sending much fangirl squealing and envy in your direction!

Is it just me or does that man just keep getting hotter?

...Now I wish I had kept those negatives of softcore porn that I got from an estate sale...

DUDE OMG WHAT POSSESSED YOU TO THROW THAT AWAY? Haha, that's like the estate sale find of the century (for crafty purposes of course).

I love the reflections...I'm planning on using Regents Metallic paint on some of my walls, can you imagine the effect that would get?

The round shape is pretty gutsy and awesome too.

Oh my gosh, this is just outstanding! You and your brother are very talented!

I'm also jealous that you have a Peter and an Edmund. Since my closest-in-age sibling was well into adulthood when I read the books, I had to play Narnia with imaginary siblings. Sad

Can I join your family? I'll be Jill!

Your bracelet is actually a fairly close approximation, so much so that I immediately knew which Etsy artist's style you were copying without having seen the original. Great job!

And I agree, Catherinette's stuff is outstanding. I love her rings.
