Oh my goodness, that fabric is beautiful! Shocked And I love the puff sleeves on the dress
And that's really cool that your friend went to Uganda with IC-- it's an awesome cause.

But anyways, great job, looks like a super cute and comfy dress for the summer Cheesy

Adorable! I love the fabric Smiley

One question though-- since you didn't use straps like in the pattern and there's no elastic, did you just make it so it's tight enough to stay up on its own? Have you had any problems with slippage?

Wow, thanks so much everyone! They're all awesome suggestions.
I'm going to talk to my sister and see if there's anything in particular she wants. I think we're basically just looking for something cuter than money belts and that doesn't require awkward under-the-clothing reaches to get money Cheesy

What do you guys think about a small bag that would attach to a belt loop but you could slip inside a front pocket? Would that even work? Huh

Hi all you lovely craftsters!
This summer, I'm traveling to Europe with my sister, and we need some way of carrying money around. I've shopped around for money belts a bit, but I'm not crazy about any of the ones I've seen. I tend to wear tighter clothing and money belts seem lumpy (and I don't really want to stick my hands down my pants in order to get money, either  Roll Eyes )
Do you have any suggestions of how I could make some cute, clever money holders?

It looks gorgeous on you!
I love how it's twisty. And the color makes your skin look all glowy and fresh.

So, the other day, I was making some pads, and I realized that I didn't have something to make the waterproof layer. Then, I had a total brain wave! You know those bags that sleeping bags come in, and you can't ever get the sleeping bag back into? Well, some of them are waterproof! I tested one of mine (I have several laying around, since the sleeping bags are just stuffed into my closet) and it was completely waterproof. But be sure to test it before.

To use the bobby pin method
1. Sterilize a bobby pin with rubbing alcohol
2. Steam open your pores
3. Drag the loop at the end of the bobby pin over blocked pores or blackheads. You might have to push kinda hard. If there's something in the pore, it'll squoosh out.
4. Use a tissue to wipe the yucky stuff from inside the little bend
5. Repeat where necessary, et voila! You're done!

I tried collaging the sky, but it takes wayyy too long, and I've already glued the tree and grass down, so it might be hard to work around those.

I just feel like the sky is too open and that it needs something to fill it up.

That's gorgeous!
It almost reminds me of mercury... it's all silvery and bubbly.

Fabulous job.

For my Art II class, we're supposed to make collages, and I'm absolutely stuck! This is what I have so far...

Sorry for the small size and the rather poor picture quality Roll Eyes

We're allowed to use any media, and we can cut the edges of the paper, let things hang off the edges, etc.  I made some flower blossoms for the tree, but the top space looks too blank. I was contemplating having hands coming out of the sky with strings attached to the fingertips, and the strings attach to little birds, sort of like marionettes. Or I was thinking about having two hands cupped together so it looks like they're releasing birds, which would be flying out of the hands.

So, you crafty people, any ideas?
