3661  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Varmint Voodoo: Bedbug Edition (YUCK!) on: October 26, 2010 10:06:07 AM
I've come up with a couple new Varmint Voodoo Editions for the holiday season and this one was one of my favorites*.

Hopefully this one can help some people suffering with a bedbug infestation. 

*And by "favorite" I mean "grossest."
3662  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Carpincho Macho & Weaselly Tee Shirts on: October 25, 2010 01:30:05 PM
A few years ago I  made my man a couple of tee shirts with weasels on them, because he really likes weasels.  The white one was getting sort of gungy so he requested a new one.  I mentioned that I was going to make myself a carpincho (capybara) shirt while I was running the iron-on transfer paper through the printer and he said he wouldn't mind a carpincho shirt for himself, if I'd be so kind.

His carpincho shirt:

I mentioned that I wanted some kind of nonsequitor word with my carpincho and he said he's like "macho" with his. When we were in Argentina last year we met carpinchos for the first time and became enamored (especially me) and "carpincho macho" is how they refer to the males.  It always tickled us to hear it.

His weasel shirt:

I haven't found a tee shirt to iron my own carpincho on to yet.

Are there plans to include the tagging in the creation of a topic process?

Excellent! I really love the hovering ghosties and the texture of the building!
Thank you!  I had a great time making it!

Aw, man!  I really shouldn't do any swaps until after the holidays and then I'm scheduled to co-organize a Tiny Winter House Swap with camelama!  Shoot.  I look forward to kicking myself for not joining when I see the gallery.   Cry  Sigh.

Why, thank you!
3668  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Re: Halloween Wreath - On a budget ;) on: October 20, 2010 11:09:20 AM
Hmmmm, you've got my creative juices bubblin'.  I had bought supplies to make the snake wreath in this month's Martha Stewart Living, but the snakes I ordered are too small for the wreath form I bought.  Maybe I'll get a smaller wreath form for the snakes and do something with my ravens on the big one.  THANKS for the inspiration!

I cannot wrap my head around that being only 4"!  All that detail!  Amazing. 
3670  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Re: Freezer paper stencil disaster, please help! on: October 19, 2010 08:14:48 PM
Why don't you just cut the roaches out of dark fabric and glue them on with spray adhesive? You could use fray-check on the edges so you wouldn't have to hem them or anything.

I'm thinking more along these lines, but instead of fray check and spray adhesive using fusible interfacing on black fabric to keep it from fraying.  I understand there is 2-sided fusible interfacing so then you could just iron the roach onto the dress.

If you're really only going to where it a couple of times this year it doesn't have to be totally sturdy AND if your Halloween activities are anything like mine they are generally at night and poorly lit so small flaws are hidden.  More so if there's drinkin'.  Wink

Good luck!  I know how heart breaking it is when your costume idea hits a snag. Ugh!
