1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Bishop Method? on: June 19, 2016 09:43:23 AM
Anyone currently use the Bishop Method for sewing? I've recently found out about it and am curious to try it.

Pick a tutorial from the tutorial portal and create the craft/technique described. Taking pictures and even rating, and possibly make improvements to the existing tut.  Smiley
3  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / Mosaic House Number 9 on: April 03, 2016 11:57:30 AM
In the recent IYP swap I asked alteredmommy to be my partner, and she agreed. Smiley

Made this mosaic house number for her from glass on tile to withstand the harsh weather where she lives. She asked for yellows and oranges with a dark color for the number.

This as it turns out is the last mosaic I will be doing. For different reasons decided I'm selling all my equipment and supplies. Very glad it will go to another Craftster member. Smiley
4  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / SPAM Artist Trading Block on: April 01, 2016 06:57:46 AM
Seems there was a spat between Blanche and Madge. Madge did not want to share her super secret SPAM recipe. Well, I brawl ensued.
Tried to make the ATB look like the actual SPAM meat block.

Here we see Blanche has taken her argument to a whole other level.

Another shot of the meat look ATB. A thing of beauty, I hear.

Happy Friday all, and have a SPAM weekend. Smiley

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Yellow Tulle Lace Gown Repair on: February 08, 2016 07:35:35 AM
Here is another gown repair I recently completed. This had a tear in the lace overlay in the middle of the back of the gown. Most likely this happened when the young lady wearing it put her shoe heal through the lace. This one is not quite as old as the last one, it's from the 1950's.

This is such a sweet gown. Hopefully it will now be worn again. Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Vintage Clothing Repair on: February 03, 2016 08:28:43 AM
As my part time job I do clothing repair to vintage clothing. I love being able to take something that is unwearable and return it to its former beauty.

This is one of the latest rescues done. It is a 1930's bias cut velvet gown. From improper storage the sleeve had ripped.

Most all the beading was still there and the gown was otherwise in excellent condition.

Here is the overall gown so you can tell the area that was repaired.
