FINALLY the crafting gods have smiled on me and allowed me, my camera and my camera cable to be in the same spot at the same time. And so I bring you craft pictures of the lovely items ChickadeeChickadoo sent.

the items came wrapped in pretty pink crepe paper with these awesome weird fish tags cos the boat (yeah I know how cool is that!?!) that ChickadeeChickadoo lives on is called weird fish so it's kinda her thing


and these cool weird fish stickers and keyrings and cute roller stamps as extras

so on to the crafts...

for birds I got this lovely creature

here he is hanging out on my overcrowded desk

for robots these pretty trinket boxes. I just love the fabric on them

I got this sweet felt tree notebook for tree theme

and these lovely keyrings and charms for my rock climbing. I can't remember if I mentioned the butterflies and lizards being all over the place when I was climbing or she just knew but I'm so glas she incorperated them into this one. Unfortunately I really struggled getting a focused picture on them. I think it's just that they're such tiny little things and my camera isn't exactly stellar on close ups so this doesn't do them any justice Sad

so favourite for last anyways. This adorable baby dinosaur embroidery thing (can't think of what they're supposed to be called)

Thanks for a great swap! Smiley

2  replacing the bust on a dress? please help :) in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by clobo_the_hobo on: May 23, 2007 01:18:01 AM
Okay so I fell in love with this red polka dot dress on ebay. It fits beautifully everywhere but the boobage. I'm uploading a crappy doodle of the dress in case this helps anyone help me.

(my first time uploading a pic so if it doesn't come up. please let me know)

 as is hopefully apparent from my crappy doodle the bust is sewn into the dress as sort of a seperate part. the bust is gathered in the middle and has a strip of the fabric going over the gathered part. It's very beautiful and lovely but it's far too tiny and it's so frustrating because the rest of the dress is so parfectly beautiful. Well the bust is too but it's just the wrong size. I   adore the swishyness of the skirt and I do love the way it gathers. I want so much to be able to wear this dress. It just feels so me other than the whole not fitting thing. I found the EXACT fabric in the sewing shop yesterday and I was wondering if there was anyway I could make a new bust for this dress and reattatch it where the old one was? Is that possible at all? I've been trying to get my head around the full bust adjustment thing on the other thread and trying to apply that to this but not sure how... Any help would be really appreciated so much. Thanks guys
