1  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Yay I'm pregnant! Please help me find a pattern for this... on: December 03, 2011 07:47:50 AM
Hi all! My husband and I just got some wonderful news recently, I'm PREGNANT and could not be happier to start sewing mini-sized stuff.

I don't know yet if it's a boy or girl, but I have been looking on Pinterest and Etsy for ideas on nurseries, and ran across this seller: http://www.etsy.com/listing/81330955/custom-crib-bedding-you-choose-the

I love her crib bedding, but $350 is just not in my price range (especially b/c I want to have more than one set, in case of accidents/drool/etc. Have any of you used patterns to make your own crib bedding?

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / LOVE this bustle skirt, but how do I... on: August 26, 2011 09:27:23 PM
I saw this on a blog actually making fun of it, but like most things that people find gaudy... I effing adore it. It's the Thakoon Bustle Skirt on ShopBop http://www.shopbop.com/bustle-skirt-thakoon/vp/v=1/845524441910632.htm, and it's sold out (but I couldn't afford a $1,000+ skirt anyway!) Any ideas on where to begin if I wanted to make it? I know some gathering would be involved... but that's about it. Pattern recommendations are also appreciated.

3  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / How to make these table runners? on: September 24, 2010 04:19:28 PM
I am having my wedding on November 26th of this year, and would really like to make table runners that resemble the one in the bottom right of this photo:

I am guessing that the way to do it would be to buy sheet moss, dye it red, dye it red again, and dye it red again until the color muted out all of the green... then start sticking silk flowers onto it. But, do any of you have any better ideas?

This may be more than I can chew.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tiered skirt (with link to tutorial) and a Rob Zombie recon dress on: July 29, 2010 02:58:29 PM
I bought some watermelon fabric on sale a while back with not a clue what to do with it. This week I finally put it to use with my very first tiered skirt. The tutorial I used (and the measurements calculator, which was A GODSEND, can be found here: http://www.chicaandjo.com/2009/05/28/sew-a-tiered-ruffled-skirt/). It was so very simple when following her instructions.


It's super long because I'm 5'7" and wanted to wear it with red heels, but I think the next one I make will be calf length. I'm also going to make some baby sized ones to reduce my stash.

Then this is a recon project, I used a large Rob Zombie men's shirt for the bottom and took in the sides, and made a top by copying a thrift shop dress I tore apart a few years ago.

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How do I copy this dress back? on: July 25, 2010 09:32:00 AM
My favorite dress is nearing it's final days (I've fixed it a few times but the linen is worn from so many washes). I'd really like to take it apart and make a copy of it, but I'm stumped as to how the back is created.  Huh I love that it's fitted but slides over my chest without zippers/buttons, due to this stretch area in the small of the back.

These are my resources:

How do I do this? I'd consider myself a novice at sewing so the simpler the terminology, the better.
6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Made my own wedding invitation - Link to tutorial included on: July 07, 2010 04:34:41 PM
Today I spent 5 hours and about $130 making almost 100 wedding invitations. I'm very proud of the final product:

I created a tutorial of sorts in my blog: http://www.bunnygoboom.com/Bunny_Go_Boom/My_Blog/Entries/2010/7/7_Unemployment_Day_2__Still_a_rock_star_%28making_my_own_DIY_wedding_invitations%29.html

Tomorrow I tackle envelopes, followed by RSVP cards, followed by tiny little envelopes for those cards.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pretty sailory summer dress on: May 15, 2010 10:52:37 AM
I made this a while ago, but finally got around to having my sister model it last week.

It's a really fun stretch fabric, I've made about 10 other things with it.

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Buddha hair clips, sushi earrings, and more on: March 07, 2010 01:48:54 PM
I'm out of work this week for surgery, and it's led to an explosion of sorts in my craft room....

9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Handpainted gun jewelry/key hanger on: January 09, 2010 09:13:04 AM
My friend made this one, and it came out amazing. It's all done freehand, and I love her color choices.

There are five little black hooks to hang keys, jewelry, and anything else.

Then these are some pillows I made:

10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bows, bows, and more bows! on: December 24, 2009 05:58:45 AM
I've been going a little nuts making bows lately. Here's some of what I've done:

The mushrooms and some of the cupcakes are handmade by me, the red/yellow bow set has store-bought cupcakes.
