Due to very crafty detectiving on my part, I now know who has my name!!!  Still waiting for the package to arrive but at least that part of the suspense is over.  Is detectiving even a word??  Grin

I think "detecting" is probably what you're looking for.  But I personally like "detectivating" on the grounds that it sounds better...   Wink

um... happy waiting?

Mojen, it looks like you put a lot of thought into what you made.
The little doggie, and the puppets are so cute!

Im curious about the cushion. did you make that by hand?
or deconstruct like me?

Everything looks great guys. awesome job.
It's always great to post what you made/got and get comments on them, especially from those you sent to.

still have some packages in transit & a few late ones. hope to hear from those people soon. I'm off to work  Roll Eyes

Well since spooky.kitty received nearly a month ago, I guess she's not going to post pictures.

But I wanted to share the stuff I worked so hard on, so I'm posting pictures of most items (I missed a couple things).

First off, she said she loves hot chocolate, so I thought some dirty chocolate would hit the spot:

Then I made some patches of her favorite cartoon character and band, her daughter, and a creative photo she did:

This outifit is for her little girl (probably for next summer):

A red-sequined slap bracelet:

A purse revamped to showcase her favorite musical act (Voltaire):

A closeup of the enhancement:

And the large item, a dress.  The pattern is one of the Butterick retro patterns from 1957.  She wanted a lolita dress, so I tried to adapt this a bit.  What you see is that it is made of black broadcloth, trimmed in cardinal red and the hem is finished with a bit of red tulle to look like a crinoline.  I had really hoped for action shots of the dress, but this is all I have:

I also included a red patent leather skinny belt (that could be worn with the dress, bracelet, and purse) and printed stationery I created in photoshop.  She said she didn't have any and would like something with an Asian influence, so I used a picture taken up through the branches of a cherry tree in full bloom.  I softened the detail and masked the center so writing would be clearer.  Then I used a laser printer on nice paper to create two different sizes of stationery.  Actually time-wise, this also equalled a large item.

I hope you guys like the stuff I worked on, I did a lot of stalking to decide what to make.  And spent a lot of time working on everything.



I know a little garden close
Set thick with Lily and red Rose
Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night.
