These are fantastic!  I wonder if it would work to make these in those little candy molds, too.  They usually have some cool shapes of those.  I'm trying to think of someone I could give these to if I made them - I don't really know any little kids but I totally want to try this project! Smiley

wow, fantastic job!  All of the outfits look fantastic, and the masks really do add to it.  I especially love the patient and the eye...it looks so creepy!

thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! people here are so helpful. Smiley I'm totally busy with the end of the quarter coming up, but I'm gonna try to mess around with this over spring break and finally make this skirt!  Roll Eyes

Thanks again for all the help, I'll let you know if/when I finally get it done!

Yay! I just received a FANTASTIC package from my swap partner, Spotnik!  Here's the pictures.
The whole package:

Robot Tote: (the three robot laws from Asimov's robot series)

and a cute little robot on the other side:

Squishy Stuffy "for throwing at people when they interrupt your reading"

Amazing Crochet Sandworm and "melange" (from Dune)

Closeup of the sandworm mouth:

Towel that says "Don't Panic" (From Hitchhiker's Guide, of course. Now I can always have my towel with me!)

Bookmarks (crocheted rainbow bookmark, book thong, ribbon bookmark, and bent wire bookmark):

And I had to take a picture of the pretty papers the bookmarks were wrapped in:

She also gave me a lovely journal to keep track of book recommendations (which I've been desperately needing, thanks!)

Thanks so much Spotnik for such a lovely package! Smiley You've been a wonderful swap angel!

thanks for the suggestions. I'll try looking again to see if i can find a dress or something with that sort of line (I've really only looked at skirts so far,  I didn't even think to look at dresses!).  If that doesn't work, I'll try the A-line skirt idea. I know I have a pattern for a skirt somewhere around here, so maybe I can make use of that.  thanks for the ideas!

So, I've had this idea floating around in my head for about a year now, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to make it.  Hopefully some of you sewing geniuses out there can help me.

The idea is that the top and bottom hem are parallel (to each other and the floor), but at the seam between the yoke and the skirt-y part, there is an asymmetrical line.  Here's my really bad paint picture (I have much better hand-drawings, but no scanner Sad).

The spots on the sides are buttons, mostly just because I like buttons.  I was thinking about doing a circle skirt for the skirt part (I want it to be something twirly), but if a different style would be easier, that works too.  I think my main issue is figuring out how to get the circumference right at the top of the skirt part, and making the bottom of the skirt lay straight.

Please let me know if you have any ideas/pattern suggestions on how to do this.  I have been searching but I have yet to find a pattern with this skirt line (only asymmetrical bottoms). Thanks! Smiley

We haven't played with them yet (our friends who taught us just had their first baby and they're the only other people in the area we know that know how to play!) and it does worry me a little, but I've seen some mahjong sets that come with tile holders... kinda like the ones you get in Scrabble. We may just steal the Scrabble ones just in case!

I didn't even think about using tile holders! They'd probably work pretty well for those. Our set has really thick tiles so it's easy to stand them up on their own and we don't need the rack things.  It's too bad you can't find anyone to play with! It's such a fun game. Whenever we can't find people to play with we just teach more people. Tongue Out of curiosity, which version do you play?

wow, those are beautiful! great job with all of the complicated Chinese characters, and the flowers! Have you played with those tiles yet? It seems like the shape might make it difficult to play with them, because it would be hard to stand them up in your hand, so I'd be interested to see how that works out.  really gorgeous work, though!
