1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re:anyone made lingerie? on: March 08, 2004 11:33:16 AM
whoah. what a busy bee i am. finally got around to sewing some fringe onto knickers and love the outcome.
i will post a photo when i borrow my friend's camera.
i also made pasties...but they were not such a success. not bad for a first attempt, but a very sticky and frustrating process! i've decided to go with fancy adhesives for now...or just cut out coloured electrical tape!
other burlesque afficionada...did you end up creating costumes for your troupe?

thanks for the suggestions.
i haven't got anything to show you yet...life suddenly got very busy, but its slowing down now. i will probably go for reconstruction and embellishment, rather than creation from scratch. i have loads of lovelies like fringe and old lingerie that doesn't fit but was too great and cheap to pass up. if you're making costumes for a group, you may want to think reconstruction/embellisment as well, unless you're a sewing wiz...or just more patient than me.
wish me luck

i am a burlesque performer and want to make more of my own costumes. does anyone have any experience in making or altering undies, or other lingerie? either the kind made of lace/ flimsy material or stretchy fabrics.  i also want to add some fringe and other sparkly detail to some hot pants/undies and am afraid to attempt it and screw up the undies. i'd appreciate any advice.
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Re:Revamping a vintage leather handbag on: December 04, 2003 06:08:03 PM
i have used acrylic paint on leather and it does flake off after time, unless you can iron it slightly, with a clean cloth between. i bought a bunch of really cheap thrift shop purses for just that purpose. i am going to try stencilling on them, and this time i'll mix in some acrylic medium for luck. i'll also add fabric flowers over any rough spots. you can cut up scraps of fabric into flower shapes and layer them, then stud through the center and voila. if you can post an image when you're done i'd love to see it. i'll try to do the same.

i just had an amazing appetizer thingy at my friends birthday do. it of indian and african origins, so if you like that food, read on. you line up from left to right,
dishes of:
- fresh spinach leaves big enough to use as little wraps
- fresh lime pulp
- grated fresh ginger root
- chopped jalapenos
- chopped lemon grass
- unsalted ground or chopped peanuts
- liquid honey
you use the spinach as a wrapper and fill up with a bit of everything as you go along, close it up and pop it in your mouth..the flavours burst ...its divine!

leg warmers are simple and cozy - as a dancer (over 30)i have a very hard time actually wearing them outside of a closed studio...but they do keep the muscles warm...and they seem to be back in fashion. i used to just hack the sleeves off old sweaters. you can stick your leg in the sleeve first to make sure they're a good fit before bringing out the scissors though. basically dancers think comfort, and  layers, without being baggy since its harder to move around like that. you can also alter sweaters or tees to make them wrap like a ballet shirt. the best thing is to dance alot, enjoy, and you'll end up dressing like a dancer naturally.

thanks for the tip. i'm going to copy the images onto regular paper then glue them ...i love them way too much to use the originals. i've done this alot for other projects, like cigar boxes, cards, magnets.
9  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / light switches on: December 02, 2003 08:45:26 AM
i have these great retro cards that i want to copy & glue onto light switches for little x-mas gifts. does anyone know what the best adhesive for this would be? paper to plastic, and it has to stay smooth, not bubble. i usually use acrylic medium for collage work or even a glue stick, and a glue gun for heavier stuff.
maybe wallpaper glue?  thanx.
