12  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Formal Dress for a 14/16 B cup Newbie steamstress. on: January 30, 2007 10:30:45 AM
The university I go to is hosting a formal "Monte Carlo Night" for all students. I'm so excited. Formals are usually only for Frats/Soroc. and I am very Anti-Greek ( No offence! to the sisters and brother out there). Finally a chance to dress up and look elegant. I'm a 24 yr old undergrad so my last formal ( aka prom) was in 2001. I'm down a couple dress sizes since then ( I was a 22) and haven't bought a dress like that since.

I want to make one that flatters and is one of a kind. I bought some beautiful fabric at walmart, It's silvery-grey satin with a large flur-de-lu type print spaced about 6 inches apart.

If anyone knows of an easy elegant pattern or has any suggestions....I appreciate it all. FYI The formal is in april.

I'd prefer a fitted tapered bodice ( maybe even a corset like top as long as it didnt smash my boobs i only wear a B) and a diagonal hemline.

13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts / I Love my Mommy! on: January 10, 2007 08:02:59 PM
So today I go to the front desk of my dorm to pick up my textbooks my mother has sent me...I start pulling out my Criminal justice books, Algebra, english etc...then I see it " The Craftster Guide to Nifty, Thrifty, and Kitschy Crafts " !!! On the inside there was a post-it from my mom. " Honey, I saw this on your wishlist when i ordered your books...I figured you needed a happy surprise. Love you.

14  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Worn out( much loved) jeans to Cozy Bollster Pillows + 1st tute on: August 10, 2006 11:08:12 PM
I had these incredible jeans that fit me just right in all the right places. Sadly in the matter of a few weeks holes developed in the belly ( near the zipper) , the belt loops tore off leaving holes and the crouch ripped when i bend over. :-( But there was hope in the form a bollster pillow!

First I cut off the legg just below the pocket ( The pillow will not be perfectlt striaght since my jeans were boot cut)

then on the end I sewed thru some slighty gathers , then stitched striaght across to close the leg,

repeated on other end, then cut a small hole in the seam . Turned inside out and stuffed

Heres the end pre-stuffing

stitched the hole close and Voila!

Here They are ( along with a few other of my pillows ...such a kick i've been on lately)
They're Comfy and can double as a neck or knee pillow too!

18  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions / Broke College Girls Guide to Spa Treatments ( and othe homemade cheapie goodies) on: August 08, 2006 03:03:23 PM
I have some recipes I use ( and love!) that are A) CRAFTY! , B) Cheap and C) Work really well, So I thought I'd pass them on.

WARNING: These work well for me , I would test a small amount on my arm/wrist if you have sensitive skin etc yadda yadda

Impurity removing Scrub

in a small dish/jar/ziploc baggie

add a 1/4 cup of epson salt
then add enough of your fav Mositurizer to make it pastey

Rub on face , Let dry , wipe off , TADA Great skin!

Alternative : use 6-8 uncoated asprins ( crushed) instead of Epson salt for glowing skin

Pore Strip type Mask  EDUT: I feel stupid didnt see this was already posted . Duh'O!

1 tsp unflavored gelatin
1-1/2 tsp milk

Microwave the gelatin and milk  for 10-15 seconds. Apply to your face. wait 10-15 minutes, then peel if off. The mask will remove the pore gunk like the $$ strips!

Sugar Scrub

In a jar ( I use a zippered ziploc) mix 2cups of sugar ( white or brown , anything but powered) with 1cup of baby oil . Kneed bag until well mixed , Scrub over body then rinse. :-)

Hope ya'll like these

20  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Lobster gift ( not print or fabric) on: July 12, 2006 07:28:07 PM
Ok My good friend has a birthday coming up in about a month and I want to make him something Lobster themed( He has this theory that lobsters can talk and are going to take over the world in a giant Coup * we're weird college students dont ask*)

Here lies the rub

Mike is very visually impaired *legally blind has cane etc*, I know he has some very limited sight b/c i have  seen him hold things on top of his glasses to read them , but I need to make something more tactile .


I cant knit or crochet
