This is my latest custom order request completed and “de-livert”!!!! I could not post without a full description of the meticulous work involved. Costume designer Betsy Heimann is the woman behind the original jacket "Penny Lane" (Kate Hudson) wore in the 2000 movie Almost Famous. According to one article, Heimann states that she made 3 coats. Not sure how identical the three of them were. Unfortunately, the whereabouts of two of them were unknown. From the online interest,
The last revision process of color tests and formula confirmations. I didn’t intend for this project to become so intense and detailed but it seems to have mind of its own. Currently, we are at 90+ color variations (not all confirmed). Just when I thought I was done....Rit Dye ProLine gifts me with another dye color. I think Taupe is going to complete this product line. Or at least I hope so. #customdyeing #customdyed #RIT #ritdye #ritdyemore #ritproline #taosh #customdyedfab
Twelve exquisite bridesmaids! These lovely ladies were all quite stunning. Not to mention the beautiful bride! No, I did not make her dress. However, I created the lace sleeve top as an addition to her sweetheart cut style dress (along with the veil). The wedding dress sleeved top: Made from English netting and embroidered appliques to match the dress. Satin covered buttons and loops as the closure for the back. Veil: The waist length comb veil was adorned with embroidered tr
My BCCDC Summer Program kids were fascinated by cool cake decorating. On one of the ever so inspiring YouTube videos, a cake decorator demonstrated how to create a marble color fondant for a cake. This sparked a great idea and we quickly ditched our original 4th of July art painting project. Let's make a marble 4th of July cake!!!! Ummm, I don't think so kiddos. Now, we do not bake cakes with the children so I had to improvise a little. So, I need something with no icing tha
Back roads, corn fields, levees, peacefulness......this is my hood! The photo is the view a little further down the lane from my parents house. Sometimes there was corn planted in the field, cotton or soybeans. But this is basically what I saw everyday I looked outside my bedroom window. I definitely did not appreciate this view when I was younger. Most people here would say, "Ain't nothing round here. You gotta get away from here so you can do good". Well, I did just that.
So, I am in love with these chiffon vests. I think I will have every color eventually, for my personal collection that is. However, this is how I spent some my day. Making vests and carrying a mannequin that is bigger than me up a levee to take pictures of said vests. My neighbors thought I was disposing of a body at first. LOL! I saw them peeking. Here are a few shots. Nothing fancy. The vests come in a number of colors and print options. Complete custom sizing and design op
OK, I have NEVER made a diaper cake in my life but because I am crafty people tend to think I can make anything. The instructions online made me feel quite dumb so I just winged it. I guess this is good for my first try. It isn't as easy as it looks. Try holding 25-35 diapers in a perfectly neat circle and tie them together. Plus, you have to make sure each diaper is uniform otherwise it just looks a like a mess of diapers. #youneed6arms I had to do it in layers so that the d
