1  Zombie Themed Stencils in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Daymoth on: November 03, 2009 01:07:05 PM
October 22nd was my stepsons 15th birthday. Seems how lately he's obsessed with zombies we decided to throw him a zombie themed birthday party complete with zombie cake, brain ice cream, and we went to watch zombieland afterward. Which is an awesome & hilarious movie I might add. lol.
Anyway here's his present-

Comments are loved!  Wink

2  Had to do Max costume this year! :P in Halloween Costumes by Daymoth on: November 03, 2009 12:28:19 PM
Yep, I know there are lots of Max costumes this year but I still had to add mine anyway.  Grin Being the big book nerd/lover that I am I went with the classic look rather than the movie look. I'm actually really proud of how it all came out, I sat sewing and scrutinizing the book for a week to get this all right! lol. Plus, my little man looks sooo stinkin cute and loved it so it was totally worth it!  Cheesy


Here's a good shot of the tail although it's a little dark. This was a bit of a pain to trick or treat with but I was maybe a little OBSESSED with getting it as much like the book as possible..lol.

King of The Wild Things

I just wish I had better pictures but I hope these are enjoyed none the less!

3  giving credit where it's due~zombie cake in Dessert by Daymoth on: November 22, 2008 01:13:01 AM
I know I'm way late but I wanted to thank outoftheash hugely for your amazing zombie cake! We had a big Halloween dinner party themed with all gory foods and since I was doing a big portion of it I asked my hubby if he could do a cake and showed him yours. He totally ran with it!

It was a huge hit and I would have never even thought of it without seeing yours and being so impressed by it!

Mother Earth and Father Time Smiley And yes, the belly is REAL! lol!
I was so proud of my man- he made his robe with only a 'lil help with a pattern. Cheesy and my dress was free handed-no pattern! I think they turned out pretty nice though. Wink

comments would be fantastic!  Grin

7  Re: CUTE one stitch top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Daymoth on: October 01, 2006 02:22:01 PM
i'm the worst at directions so please forgive me, but here's my try at a better explanation on making this top.

the red is the stitich line, the blue numbers are the measurements that i made my top to (i'm about a medium to small) and the pink is the distance to the stitch- this distance will definitely depend on the stretchiness of your fabric though and you'll want the top tighter if your fabric is heavier.
*edit* oops! lets see if this makes it more understandable- the purple line on the left is the fold line, and the orange line on the right would be the selvages so from foldline to selvage measures 26 inches and the fabric is 20 inches wide. the 13 inches is the opening that your bust will be going through when wearing. the red line is the stitch line, i sewed mine 11 inches.

I also like to make a small dart like stitching on the inside of the folds of fabric just to make it lay better and more open. but it's not necessary.

and here's a pic of the top lying flat and with the afore-mentioned flower pin.
so, hopefully that helps. just let me know if you have any questions or if there's anything i didn't explain well.
and Please! post if you make one. i've only tried it in striped fabrics so i'd love to see some others. Smiley
