are pictures working yet?? because i have a few pics of my totoro - he's all sewn up and ready to felt!

here he is flat and looking like a weird ghost creature:

here are his ears and tail getting ready to be attached:

and here he is assembled! i just need to get him felted & sew on some eyes, nose, and whiskers!

sorry the pictures are so crumby... our good camera has gone missing, some i'm stuck using the crappy one.

best. birthday. ever.

i asked for a lunch bag, because i've been meaning to make one for myself for a while and have somehow never gotten around to it...

but now i don't have to because kmsmaverick made one that is truly lovely!! check out the lace detail... the fabric used for the trim is the same as the lining, and it has french writing on it because i love all things french...

and there's stuff inside too!

check it out: we've got snack foods, chocolates (or, uh, just the wrappers, because i could not help myself), a fuzzy bunny (non-marshmallow) peep, hair doo-dads (in the nick of time, too - i was in a desperate barrette situation yesterday!) nail polish & emeryboards, a donation to the children's wish foundation, and brownies you can bake in the microwave in thirty seconds!! i don't think you can get those in canada. i can't wait to take my lunch bag and brownies to work on monday and make everyone jealous!!

thank you so much kmsmaverick!! you rock!!

14  knitted hot water bottle & tissue box cover in Knitting: Completed Projects by smartygirl on: February 23, 2006 06:45:30 PM
here are a couple of things i knitted out of white buffalo yarn - it's unspun 6-ply, so it was too chunky for what i wanted, so i separated out the strands and used it as 2-ply. very cosy - esp the hot water bottle! no more burnt toes!

the tissue box i knit bottom-up - the first row was picot, so i could thread elastic through to make it fit nicely.

15  Re: wedding dress - a reproduction of a 1930s gown - IMAGE HEAVY in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by smartygirl on: February 20, 2006 06:06:04 PM
is it just me, or is the post not showing up? sorry, i'm new at this! here we go again:

the inspiration for my wedding dress was a dress on the vintage clothing website, thefrock.com (http://www.thefrock.com/talmadge_page1_main.html - scroll down to see the dress - it's blue ombre, about half-way down the page on the left)

i drafted a pattern on newsprint, and made a mock-up in muslin, which i ended up using as both the pattern and the interlining.

here i am sewing in the kitchen. the fabric i chose was white silk charmeuse - very slippery, tricky to work with, and any errant pinholes or marks will show. i pressed the fabric with a touch of easy-on starch before working on it, to make it hold still.

the ironing never stops!

here's a shot of the flange-thingy - the silk was a pain to work with, but beautifully drapey:

i like this shot of the back:

and finally, married! the dress worked!
