The dress is cute - you have talent to make a dress without a pattern! The shrug is AMAZING. I would wear that with so many things - great fabric and style! Thanks for posting!

How about getting a piece of poster board and putting pictures on that, then hanging the poster board on the wall? You also might be able to hang a lightweight bulletin board with command type hooks - they have some removable hooks that hold up to 5 pounds, 2 would probably hold a bulletin board?

If that's not your thing, how about a scarf or a piece of material artfully draped on the wall?

Or you could do something creative with scrapbook paper? There are tons of great designs!

Happy decorating!

This room looks so nice - you did a great job. It feels light and bright and very welcoming. I would spend lots of time at that table doing all sorts of things. I like it just as you have it, but if you are uncertain about the side walls, live with it a little while and see how you feel. Personally I'm more of a minimalist, and I wouldn't want to take away from what you have. Please post your next room!

If you keep those darling kids around, no one will look at the electronics! ;-)

Seriously, hiding the cords would be a big help, like gannon said. You could also try velcroing them together and running them behind the larger pieces so they don't show.

I guess it depends on how much disguising you want to do and how much your hubby is willing to put up with. You COULD drape the whole front with a piece of fabric that he could lift to reach the equipment. I know that would make my hubby crazy, though - no remotes would work, etc.

A less drastic approach might be to wrangle the cords and then put two large vases or plants on either side of the top shelf. You could move the picture down a bit, and I think the focus would go to the vases/plants and picture. NOTE: IF you are setting live plants near electronics please make sure they have large enough saucers under them. DON'T ask how I know this. . . ;-)

Let us know what you come up with.

Those owls are completely awesome! You've got talent - and now you have a great decoration, too! I love it!

I've made this dress. You can do it. Here are some suggestions:
1. My waist is 14 inches smaller than my hips, 10 inches smaller than my bust, and as printed the waist FIT me - almost snug. Keep this in mind when adjusting - it's really a dress built for a hourglass.

2. Having said that, the shape may very well give you the illusion of a more hourglass shape! This could be good.

3. Why not extend the center part - where the pattern buttons - and make two long "belt" pieces. Then you could tie them or put on D-rings - give you some flexibility to adjust. You'll still have the flattering shape. . .

4. You might consider making the "under-dress" a little wider in case you have more "gap" in the front on your first try.

5. Pick LIGHTWEIGHT fabric - the back of this dress could get heavy and pull backwards if the fabric is heavy. . .

6. HAVE FUN - you'll learn lots and end up with a cute dress. There are a couple of threads on here about this dress - check them out for inspiration!

Happy Sewing

I've gotta get a serger. I've messed around with my 30+ year old sewing machine and knits and the results always disappoint. Currently looking for a good deal on a used machine. Was it hard to learn to use your serger? I think it sounds like fun, especially if I net a cute dress like yours. . . Or a nice top. . .

I TOTALLY hear you on the fear of washing what I've made. . . I'm sure what we make is much better made than store-bought, though!

Wear your dress and smile! ;-) Thanks for the advice!

Super cute. *THIS ROCKS*!

I like the tie as is, especially if you will be losing weight. I think this dress will see you through more weight loss - you can just belt it in and it will be a bit more gathered. The fabric is awesome and the colors are great for you!

Now for the questions. . . Was that type of knit hard to sew on? I've been thinking about making a dress out of similar but do not have a surger. Straight stitch? Narrow zig-zag? You are the guru!

Thanks for sharing - great work - keep creating!

Love your super cute skirt. The "point" from the crotch of the pants turned out really nicely and flows neatly into the insets. . . I'd wear that! Thanks for showing and inspiring. As for patches. . . I like what you have - but more would be cute, too. No real opinion!

Those are AWESOME! Very creative! Did you seal them or will the sharpie be waterproof (I'd hate to see all of your work bleed!)
