OK wow! This is awesome. I am going to try really hard to get my act together enough to join in as this is right up my alley... although i may have trouble moving on from the zombie topic... there is simply so much material for that. Slightly off-topic is a gift I made for my brother for the 2009 holidays...

The snowman is cut from wood and then I used hot glue to add more gore to the blood.

OK I have an idea, although it is not terribly clever... but I think it will solve a storage problem that has been plaguing me for years. I will try it out and get back to you... it you don't hear back... nag me Wink

It's actually really funny that you posted this.

I ddecided I wanted to try making paper. I didn't  have any kind of frame or anything, and don't like to invest a ton off time and money into something at first, until I know if I'm going to do it more than once. So I scoured the house and shed for ideas. I ended up taking a wire hanger, bending  it into a circle, hot gluing a piece of  lace onto it really tightly....and it worked great!

Once I fgure out how to get pics in here, I will post them!

FYI I have used pantyhose as the screen. I stretched the wire hanger into a square-ish shape, cut a section of a leg, stretched it over the hanger and tied it off. The hanger hook makes it really easy to hang to dry Smiley I made paper with a kindergarten class and this was a fantastic, inexpensive way to let everybody have their own screen.

Ack! This is so awesome and here it is, almost midnight... I am dying to race out to a 24hr Wal-mart to find a game to customize RIGHT NOW! Your gift is amazing and wonderful and I love it! Your polymer pieces are adorable, but I agree, that envelope is to-die-for cute. Brilliant execution. (yes, all dead jokes are accidentally on purpose & unavoidable)

Very cool with the asymmetry.

I look at those scraps and think wine/water bottle (gift) bag. I dunno if the pieces are big enough, but the fringe would look cute folded down perhaps? I just realized you are very likely under 21, so let's go with water bottle tote Wink

Thank you for sharing, not only an amazing recon job, but such meaningful info. Body image is a tough area for so many women and you are gorgeous. It is helpful hearing that someone who looks as amazing as you do is not 110 lbs. It helps some of us set more realistic goals and also to see what a dramatic difference style makes. I fear short skirts, but I see a glimmer of hope that skirts CAN be flattering heehee

You did a phenomenal job on this challenge. Excellent recycling, especially giving the shoulder pads to the dogs LOL

This is gorgeous. Your skills are awe-inspiring and your kidlets are gorgeous too!

BTW, now that you've done the PhotoShopping, you have ready-made jack-o-lantern patterns for scraped portrait pumpkins Smiley Just scrape deepest for the lightest color, and medium depth for the middle shade and leave the rind for the black. It requires a thin pumpkin and a bright light, but it can be a very cool (or very creepy) decoration. And it takes a lot less patience than your applique did. Seriously, you are amazing!

Hi, if you are after function more than decor, search for "duct tape dress form"

You can make a full body form or just a torso etc. I opted for full body and purchased an inexpensive hoodie with matching pants and had a (very close) friend mummify me and then cut off the tape and clothes after making Sharpie marks to assist in re-aligning the seams.

This is NOT a flattering look in the process LOL but you can get a very custom fit. You can stuff if with anything, but I recommend giving it some dowels if you want the form to stand. It is easier to dress if you leave it flexible, but harder to keep in shape.

The hoodie was convenient for including a head and neck since I am a large woman.

You could also stop at the thighs (think biking shorts) and just have dowel legs to represent height if you are not creating fitted calves in your clothes.

Remember to mark where your belly-button is and any other fitting features (natural waist, knee caps, whatever else is important to you in fit)

Sorry this is so late of a response. I hope you have found what you need already... but this is a giggle-inducing project regardless.

I intend to insert stretchy bits at the elbows, knees, bum, and shoulders to make for more realistic poses. (eventually)

This is awe-inspiring. Brilliant concept and a truly impressive show of taking the ugly sweater to a new level. I adore your family based solely on this post Smiley

These are really sweet! You did a fantastic job and I really appreciate your taking the time to write out the how-to.

I'm off to go make some with SCAL now Smiley No scissors needed.

I was thinking I might try sewing it with dark button thread and just sewing the body (perfect choice, that funky yarn) to the spine as I go to avoid having to thread the fuzzy stuff.

I think I have some cute butterfly stickers that are large enough too... oooh, so many choices. Thanks for inspiring us.
