21  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Cooking for one on: January 04, 2006 12:39:46 PM
I have a friend whose uncle recently lost his wife of 60 years.  He is eating a lot of frozen dinners and canned soups because he doesn't know how to cook for himself.  She is looking for ideas for recipes for "cooking for one".  Does anyone have suggestions for cookbooks or website links that will have easy recipes that he could make?
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I am making the Duchess' hat from Alice in Wonderland -UPDATED WITH PIX on: August 29, 2005 12:05:42 PM
Our high school theater is putting on Alice in Wonderland as our children's show.  I have been assigned to make the Duchess' hat.  You know the one...big, huge, puffy, with veiling. 
Here is an example:

Anyone have any suggestions on what would be best to use to make it stand up and out?

The show was a big success!!  I thought you would like to see some pictures of my final creation.
I ended up using glue to stiffen the inside of the hat.  Then I used heavy gauge floral wire to give it some support.  After sewing the rolls around the top and the bottom, I added a final layer of felt with stuffing underneath to pad it out.  Final touches were the feather boa and the veil.

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need to make a "vintage" hat on: June 20, 2005 11:19:59 AM
I have had a request from a friend to make him a "vintage" hat with a veil and fluffy feathers.  I thought it would be real easy.  Just get a Juliet cap form from the bridal section and go from there. 

BUT I can not find a Juliet cap ANYWHERE!!!!   Angry

Does anybody know where I can find one without paying an arm and a leg?  Or how I could make my own form?  I thought about getting some double sided fusible interfacing but how would I shape it?

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Goosebumps Dress on: May 23, 2005 03:09:00 PM
Thanks to several postings on Craftster, we were inspired  Shocked

We found the perfect sheets...

and created the perfect dress

For school, she has to wear a jacket or something over it because of the dress code.  This is what she wore for the first day of school this year.  First person she saw was her principal who just looked at her and shook his head.  After all of our run-ins with him the year before, he has now gotten used to her.  The most frequent comment she gets from the guys is "Hey, I used to have (still have!) sheets just like that!"
25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Stylish Top Hat on: May 23, 2005 11:15:21 AM
Just wanted to show off my daughter's newest creation...a Stylish Top Hat!!

She has been wanting one of her very own and when she found out how much a full sized one would cost, she decided to make her own.  With all the compliments she has been receiving on it, she is wondering if she could make and sell these to earn some money. 

What do you think?  How much would you pay for a custom made miniature top hat?  The base of the hat is approximately 6" and it stands about 7" high.
26  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Lining a wooden box on: October 26, 2004 10:55:03 AM
Does anyone have any experience with lining a wooden box?  I am constructing a small coffin box and I want the inside to look like a real coffin.  You know...with the poofy sides?  I can figure out how to sew the material but I can't figure how to attach the material to the box.  It will need to hold pretty well because it will get a lot of use.
27  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / sewing kit for theater? on: October 06, 2004 10:52:36 AM
my daughter is in HS theater and is going to be starting her second production of the year as head of costumes.  The teacher has said she needs to have her own sewing kit.  Are there any theater people out there with suggestions of what is needed? (beyond the basics found in any ordinary sewing kit)  The final kit will need to be something fairly small (able to fit into a school locker).  Cheesy
