Oh, Ryn, that's awful. I'm so sorry for your loss. Family definitely takes priority over swapping, so don't worry about it at all.

Has anyone else checked their inbox about 30 times today? I'm waaaay too excited for partners, haha.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Where can I buy plain, cotton crew-neck t-shirts? on: December 20, 2012 09:24:22 AM
Whenever I stencil T-shirts, I actually buy them at Michael's; here, they're in the same aisle as the fabric paint, so it's really convenient. They're surprisingly nice quality, available in a good range of colours, and are super affordable (usually on sale 2 for $14 or 3 for $12 - that sort of thing). They do only have short-sleeved T-shirts, though.

This sounds like it could be fun, but also somewhat overwhelming. That being said, it sounds like a great idea. It's not feasible for me right now, but I'll definitely join if there's another one when I'm done school next year. Smiley

Thank you all for your excellent suggestions!

I've made myself a list of everything that I think he'll like and anything I don't wind up doing for our anniversary or Christmas will definitely be getting used for other occasions over the year. Conveniently, on top of this, my parents managed to find something for him, so I'll also be able to give him the game I picked up. Smiley

He won't be getting another toy tiger after all! (When we first started dating, I had no idea what to get him ever, so I just bought him tiger figurines for every occasions since he said they were his favourite animal; they aren't anymore, haha)

Excellent, and the proportions are right on. Envying your dressform.
Thanks. Don't be too jealous about the dressform, though; it belongs to my school, so I only get it for one more year (but I'll give it a good workout until then).

I love him! "Thank You" is probably my favorite episode of Adventure Time. He's perfect!  Cheesy
Aw, thank you. I'll have to make him a little firewolf pup companion to complete the look. Smiley

Aww, thanks for all of the wonderfully positive feedback, everyone. You've made me feel really good about my work.

Extremely cute!  I especially like the skirt.  Pinned!
I'm glad you like it. Hopefully I'll get the chance to actually have it in a line sometime in the (distant) future.

Gorgeous and the fabric you used are so perfect for the design. Smiley
I was a little hesitant at putting them together, but I'm glad I did since it turned out so well in the end. That wool is wonderful to work with, too.

Well, I'm impressed, very professional looking work.
I spent more time than I'd like to admit picking out and fixing seams or anything that looked a little off, haha. It was definitely worth it for the finished product, though. Smiley

Wow! That is so beautiful!! That is something I would totally wear (you know, when I could fit into it lol!) Great job!
You and me both, haha. Some day I hope to make it again in a full size range.

Count me in! This swap starts exactly when my term break does, so how could I say no? Just have to finish filling out my questionnaire. Grin

EDIT: Super long questionnaire sent!
19  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Adventure Time Snow Golem (aka Bilby) on: November 30, 2012 08:34:16 PM

I recently rewatched the "Thank You" episode of Adventure Time, which just so happens to feature one of the most lovable characters in the series (in my opinion). Here's a reference if you're not familiar with the show.

Anyway, I decided that I needed to make a wonderful little snow golem to call my own. I named him Bilby.

I plan to make him the little satchel he's wearing in the reference picture, too. Smiley
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / High-waisted lace-up skirt and matching blouse on: November 30, 2012 12:00:09 AM

This is one of my classmates modelling the set for a photoshoot our class had at the end of the summer for a magazine project we had to put together. What better feature for a fashion class' magazine than a photo spread featuring our own work? The important part about this, though, is that her hair matches the clothes!

These are two of my favourite things I've ever made. Sadly, they're for school and, therefore, are a size I will never fit into, haha. C'est la vie, though, because I love them anyway. Smiley

I made the skirt last spring and the blouse at the beginning of the summer. Both were completely designed, drafted, and constructed by me.

The skirt is a lightweight green wool. Each ruffle and the skirt itself is fully lined in that lightweight textured fabric. One of my teacher's couldn't believe I actually used it for lining; apparently it's really hard to work with? I mostly just had issues with over-ironing and fraying. Anyway, I love love love the way it turned out. Pretty much my favourite design ever, tricksy as it was (there were over 50 pieces! Shocked).

The blouse is mostly a poly-blend broadcloth. I really wanted to make a top to go with my skirt, so I decided to use the contrast yoke and sleeves to connect the two. The front felt really plain compared to the back, so I added the tie at the collar. I know it's a tad silly to have two bows on the front when the skirt and blouse are worn together, but that's okay.
