1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Lighted LED chair! on: March 06, 2009 01:02:15 AM
I love, love, love the looks of these in clubs/where ever.
But, they are expensive!
Any ideas on how to make them?

Inspiration can be found here. http://www.showtec.co.uk/led-effects/led-furniture.html
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Graduation Party! on: April 19, 2008 10:21:54 PM
I need some more ideas. I want to throw in some more memorable ideas, as well as some things that show off my girly, sewing, fashion side. Help? THANK YOU!

Our school colors are blue and black. It's a bit bland so I'm going for a black, dark blue, light blue, and silver theme. I'm going to try to throw in quite a few touches of silver & diamonds for a girly, fashiony theme.

We are getting one of those big white tents to put in our back yard and setting up the tables under it. A bunch of balloons will be floating in it. I'm not totally sure about the decor in it yet. We are having long tables with black table clothes and blue plates & napkins. The centerpieces are going to be picture frames and we are also going to having words on the tables.

My food, cake and pictures are going to be in the garage. Instead of cake, I'm having cupcakes. My mom is making me a giant cupcake cake. It's going to be big like that, but it won't look like that one. We are building a cupcake stand thing, so my giant one will be on top and there will be like stairs going down with the other ones. My dad is building the stand out of clear plastic and spraying it from underneath with glitter spray. It's going to look really cool. Plus, we are getting those silver cupcake foils, so it'll be pretty shiny and sweet.

My pictures table is going to be pretty sweet. I made this big 2008 thing for my senior pictures, it's the smallest one. I'm going to tack my senior pictures onto the front of it and have it on the table. Instead of a guest book, I've made scrap book pages with my senior pictures with spaces for signing.

Also, I'm having my cap & gown put on one of my sewing mannequins.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pleating fabric? on: April 16, 2008 11:28:42 PM
How the heck do you do this?


Do you just iron it. What about after you wash it?

Thanks everyone!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help making this dress? on: March 06, 2008 06:20:22 PM
The color of the band in the original dress is the same as the skirt color. I want to make it an apple red.

Any ideas on making this? Also, do you think I could use a stretch type lace? I didn't really want a zipper...


This is the original dress. I think I want to get rid of the lace on top and just have a plain cream top. Then an apple red silk tie and teal skirt.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Homecoming Help. on: September 26, 2007 12:30:30 PM
Hey everyone!

Alright, so homecoming is Saturday night. And, I would like to make my dress. It's really late notice. And I have a backup, just is case.

But, I love this dress-

Any ideas for a pattern? It looks pretty simple.

What kind of fabric would you suggest?

Do you think it can be done in 3 days?

How is the bow so perky?

6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Royalty... on: April 30, 2007 10:51:46 AM

[So prom planning 2008 has started. And I am heading the committee.

We've decided we want something royal, glamorous, fancy, over-the-top.

Yet we need a specific theme or a title for the night.]

Also pictures and fabulous ideas.

So does anyone have a creative name for the night, or any other fun ideas?

Fundraising ideas are welcome too!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Lovely little prom dress help! on: April 14, 2007 02:01:09 AM
Alright, so I have created my own prom dress look, and I have sort of put together a picture of what I *hope* it looks like.

Okay. So, what I am going for is the dress on the right, exept with boning added and the corset back added. Plus no lace and different colors. Possibly beaded.

1. I could use some help finding a pattern, or making one?

2. Fabric recomendations, I sort of want to bead it.

3. Beading of corsets or beading in general advice.

4. Anything helpful?

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Venetian Prom on: April 03, 2007 11:25:07 AM
Hello, I know there is another board on here about proms, but I need specific help.

Our prom theme is Venetian.

This is our back drop. Although we may be painting the black to a brown, because it seems a bit harsh.

What I need help with is the table settings, other decor, invitations, considering we only have a backdrop.

Also our budget isn't crazy high, we gave the school our prom idea and 21 fundraising ideas, in september. They choose to okay it less than 8 weeks before prom.

Thanks for the help!
9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Disco/Rave/Club-ish party. on: January 31, 2007 02:58:23 PM
Alright, so I am having an after prom party. And my inspiration comes from Justin Timberlake's "Sexy Back" video (the disco-y club scenes.) But I need some more ideas. There really isn't much of a budget. Please help, picture would be wonderful. Thank you <3
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Pink... on: January 16, 2007 09:04:02 AM
Hey Everybody,

So, my 17th b-day is about 2 months away. And I'm trying to plan some kind of decently big party to compensate for not having a sweet 16. Basically, I have no creative ideas sparking. Expect I want pink. I have no idea why, it's not even my favorite color, but for some reason I want pink everything. So could you guys help me think of some themes, or ideas to go with my need for pink? Thank you!
