A couple months ago I came upon a tutorial on The Artful Parent for Kool-Aid Dyed Playsilks . I hadn’t really heard about playsilks before that but upon further investigation found out that they’re awesome.
So you guys know that I'm a big dork right? Yeah like it's a big secret or something... this chick here (pointing at myself)... she's a DORK!! I was talking with Jeanne the other day.... ok by talking I mean emailing... John goes nuts when I say "I was talking to so and so" he always responds... "oh really, you were on the phone??" (he knows I don't like talking on the phone) "umm no I mean I was ichatting, or emailing" "that's not talking..."
Assembling it here to put on Craftster. These are the pieces you'll need. There are two sleeves, two front pieces, a back, the front facing (which goes around the neck and finishes the front opening) and a side tie, which is in two pieces. The front facing can be cut either in all one piece long enough to go around the angled front pieces and the neck on the back, or in two pieces sewn together to make a long enough piece (the seam would be in the center of the back of your neck.)
1. All character wigs come fully styled. 2. All wigs are one-size-fits-all, and are adjustable. 3. Depending on your computer's color resolution, some of our product's colors may appear different from the actual product.
Difficulty: ** You will need: silk, satin or brocade fabric; fusible interfacing; invisible zipper (refer to your pattern for zipper length); bias tape; 3 rayon braid frog closures. Attention! Fabric consumption varies depending on the size of garment. First of all, print out paper patterns and lay them out at the width of fabric/ knit you plan to use, to see how much fabric you will need.
I made this thing. It’s pretty cool.
First, I know it's Tuesday and I'm predictably late with Makeup Monday. I hope the lack of alliteration doesn't detract from the post; I promise that I have lots of great excuses for not putting this up yesterday. Or, I fell asleep.
Yesterday we set out determined to make our own dress forms for the Etsy Labs and thought we'd share the love with you guys if you want to make one of your own or just laugh at our own trails with the duct tape! Materials: A large T-shirt that fits below the bum that will be cut up and destroyed in the process Another small piece of discard able cloth (a paper towel will do) At least two 45 gram rolls of duct tape A pair of sharp scissors Cardboard, and cardboard tubing Something to stuff the form with (peanuts, foam, polyfil , old clothes, be creative) A helper Here's what ya gotta do: Step 1 Put on large T-shirt and have your helper begin to wrap the roll of duct tape around your body.
This baby right here embodies a certain quality I like to call majesticfulness . Imagine yourself, as you don this knitted viking helmet, rowing your knitted viking warship over turbulent woolen seas; finding new, knitted lands, pillaging their knitted villages, raping their knitted inhabitants. No, seriously, the vikings were first-class dicks .
