1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Ever drunk baileys from a shoe?? on: November 09, 2008 09:29:57 AM
Oh wow, I love this costume! Very, very well done. Brings back a lot of mangina memories!!

I am resolved to watch as much mighty boosh as the Internet will show me!

I'm pretty certain that a large group of my friends are going to recreate Studio 54 wherever we go!

The nice thing is that we can go as anyone that may have been there in the late 70's (anyone who had anything to do with disco, the Rolling Stones, Andy Warhol, Calvin Klein, Cher, Ertha Kitt, the list goes on and on and on). I think I want to be 70's era Margaret Trudeau!

I'm in the process of looking for some velvet rope to bring along so that our bouncer/Steve Rubell can let people in or out. Hopefully there will be enough of us to have out own line up to get in!
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Re: this is just ridiculous =P on: April 22, 2008 05:56:19 PM
My mom once made a ridiculous bag that she thought was really just too big for anything (other than no less than three small children - I say this because we tried). And then I got a new giant skirt for dancing. And then I started teaching dance and I needed to be able to cart that thing to and from classes. The giant bag of giantness is now my lovely dance bag - with a pocket for safety pins!

Your giant bag is fantastic! If there were two of me and only one bag, I would probably fight myself to death for it.

Here's what I made with this technique!

6  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The Future is Plastic: A bed in a bag out of bags! on: March 01, 2008 03:31:30 PM
So after about a month of collecting bags and ironing and sewing, I made a bed in a bag out of bags! I've installed it in my room (and my class had to come over to see it)

I've blogged about the whole process here: http://meghanmakes.blogspot.com/2008/02/how-i-made-blanket-so-far.htmlI'll be putting pictures of the installation up here soon.

Thanks so much to jamiewatchthestars for the great tutorial and everyone who posted about their experiences with the plastic bags. It's only the comforter that is done in the same way. There's about 200 bags in the comforter and about 150 in the pillows. The flat sheet (only partially shown) is made of mostly large plastic, sewn to be made even bigger! They were all donated! The first picture shows the inside of the blanket and the second is of it all together in my room!

I imagine it wrapped around a cake of some sort, or a wider patch over a particularly sweet pie . . .

This is gorgeous!! The beads are lovely! Are you reinforcing them in any way? I have lost more beads/coins/bells/fringe in the past few years from them not being done properly (thankfully I'm starting to learn from my mistakes). I agree with lime_rising about the colours. Fantastic!

It's nice to see other dancers crafting their own costumes!

This should be interesting. I live in Regina, SK, Canada. The Queen City that rhymes with fun and is home to the longest bridge over the shortest distance of water (it was a make work project during the Depression!)
10  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Re: embroidered buttons on: January 23, 2008 03:23:39 PM
These are lovely!

I made a few attempts at doing something like this only without the aid of a button maker. I had a few extra 1.5 inch buttons that I'd never worn (thank you summer jobs) and made essentially embroidered button covers. I used leftover broad cloth and went to town stitching a swear word onto one and "Hug Me" on the other. The "Hug Me" button is a little messier on the back because I did it first but I cut tabs that I sort of lashed across the back of both of them.

I don't have pictures but they are well loved.
