1  fixing a broken piece? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Machaine on: August 22, 2011 07:12:43 AM
Before my aunt passed away from breast cancer, she turned to sculpting as a type of therapy. She had never used polymer clays before and in a matter of months was creating some truly amazing works of art. I was lucky enough to receive one, and it means a great deal to me. Unfortunately, when I moved into my apartment, a small piece broke in half. I'm assuming this can be repaired, but I know nothing about clay and I don't want to use the wrong glue and ruin it. It's about 10 years old, if that makes a difference.

The broken caterpillar

Thank you!!

Here's my package to craftyhippie. One of her movies was The Wizard of Oz, so I sent her tons of Oz inspired goodies.

Among them were a few things I forgot to take pictures of, including two beaded book thongs, a t-shirt with a quote by the Wizard himself, a ruby-red glitter "S" (her first initial), a few random little goodies, and -my favorite- a box I painted (to look like a stage with mini movie posters of her favorite movies) to send everything in.

~*~CRAFTYHIPPIE please post pictures if you can!!~*~

I also sent...

A Rainbow of Wine Glass Markers (sorry for the horrible lighting!)

A Good Witch/Bad Witch inspired necklace

A painted plate (this is actually not the one I sent her, I made a second one that was a bit neater)

A light switch cover painted with a view of Oz

And a bluebird necklace

Oh! And also a Good Witch/Bad Witch bag! (bad pictures Sad )

So my boyfriend surprised me by taking me away for a few days, but I'm back and I have pictures! I haven't looked at the rest of everyones packages, but I can't wait to go back and look at what everyone else received!

This is what crafty hippee sent me:

Mary Poppins!
The package (and an envelope of fun trivia and song lyrics)

A fun wall hanging (modeled by my oh so thrilled boyfriend):

But it's okay, he got something too! Batman! A box with Robin on it and a Joker key chain:
(There was also a poster of the Joker from the last Batman movie, but I didn't get a picture)

A Mary Poppins box:

A beautiful mirror!:

And a bunch of goodies!:

Unfortunately, it was super hot and some of the things stuck together  Sad

Like many who posted here, this is my first attempt and it's digital since I couldn't find any pretty paper laying around. I did it rather quickly, but I had fun. I hope to keep making them!

I think it's decent for a first attempt.

So I recieved a package from my angel Polkaroo a few weeks ago, but I haven't been able to take any pictures until now. Everything Polkaroo sent me was amazing! And just my style!

My verb was to dance.

First, there was a set of four ballerinas which I promptly hung on my tree. They are so cute and I will definatly find somewhere else to hang them in my room once the tree is down! (I think these were my favorite thing in the package!)

(Everything came with these cute little tags hanging on them!)

Then there was a beautiful necklace and a pair of earrings. I love the colors! My mother was with me when I opened them up and she tried to take the necklace from me!

(No picures of them on... I haven't showered or changed yet.)

There was also a very cute bag (made from a felted sweater, yes?). The lining fabric has a bunch of ballet terms and stick figure dancers showing what they are. I love it!

(Sorry it's hard to see!)

And then she even included a little stuffed mouse for my cat Bailey (who is very, very picky about cat toys and LOVES this.) I couldn't get a close-up of the toy because it's currently MIA but I did get some of Bailey playing with it.

THANK YOU again Polkaroo!!

This was my very first swap, and I had a lot of fun creating a package for my partner FutureTrophyWife. I haven't heard from her (nor have I received anything from her) but I checked and she's received her package. So I wanted to share the photo's I took of my crafts.

Her verb was to laugh.

First I made her a purse with the cutest fabric ever - green polka dots with snails! It made me giggle in the fabric store, so I knew I had to use it.

Next, I made her a necklace. It has a blown glass pendent which is red with bursts of blue, yellow, and green. It looked to me as if someone had painted laughter into the glass. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture of it.

And then I decorated three shirts for her baby daughter. Each has a different saying about laughter and ribbon trim.

and a close-up!

I also threw in some stickers with laughter quotes and some Laffy Taffy (one of my favorite candies).

10  1960's mod dress pattern? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Machaine on: August 20, 2006 07:07:22 PM
Hi there! I need your help! This is a bit long, but please read it! Please!

I'm going to be in a show (in January-ish) called "Leader of the Pack" which is about the life of Ellie Greenwich, a singer/songwritter, and her husband Jeff Berry, a songwritter as well, during the 1960's. It has lots of fun songs like "Chapel Of Love", "Leader of the Pack", "Do Wah Diddy", you get the idea. I'm going to be one of the back-up singers/dancers.

While the show isn't going to open until January, the theater I work at is having a Gala to introduce the new season (which "Leader of the Pack" is in.) This Gala is the 2nd and 3rd weekend in September. While we will be in costumes, it will basically be what-ever we all can throw together. What I want to do is this: make a 60's dress I can wear that I can also dance in AND to show the director what I can do (sewing and design-wise) and *hopefully* get to be the costume designer for the show!

I can sew, follow patterns, and whatnot, but I'm not so good at drafting my own (even easy ones) which is why I would need a pattern.

What I need help on is finding a good pattern or tutorial. Hopefully free or cheap, but I'd be willing to spend a little money if it's a good pattern.  I've been scouring craftster and have been looking at Simplicity patterns. But the thing is, I can't buy things online. So I need a free website or a pattern I can buy at JoAnn's. I'm also willing to do a swap with someone if they had any vintage patterns they could copy and send me.

I'm specifically looking for a dress a la Twiggy. Short, bold, and I'd like personally like sleeveless, but that's not nessesary. These are dresses I like:

Ideas! Please!
