Re: How to Make an Impression: Extraordinary Thank-You Notes

Just stunning! If I had the talent, I would make one as well but I don't think I could make anything nearly that incredible! Thank You for sharing such a lovely idea!

Re: How to Restyle a T-Shirt into a Ruffly Shrug

I've seen the restyled sweatshirts and have always admired them but, it never even occured to me to restyle a tee shirt! If the article had never mentioned this jacket began life as a tee shirt, I would never have known!
There are many angles to this idea and it's simply an inspiration in my opinion and one heck a great job!
Well Done!

Re: Three Way to Make a Button Link Necklace

I collect antique buttons and sewing notions. I've always wanted a classy way to showcase my buttons but had no idea how to go about that. Thanks for the answer!

Re: How to Make a Hand-Knit Scarf

I have to say, I'm not much of a scarf person but this gorgeous work of art tempts me!

Re: How to Sew a Cutout Beret

Very clever, I definitely plan on making this one!

Re: Zipper Tape Necklace

I for one would like to apologize if my remarks caused hurt feelings. I would like to rephrase what I said and put it like this: It's not for me, I wouldn't wear it but that doesn't mean someone else might not find it quite unique. For the record, it didn't look like a snake to me, it looked like one of those collapsible garden hoses rolled up into a coil. I don't know that that will help any but there it is. As far as the negativity on this blog, I guess the comments could have been a bit more charitable, including mine but I think there is a certain requirement for a thick skin in the design world because everyone is not going to love all of your stuff all of the time. I can tell you, I have been told to keep my daytime job more than once. That being said, I think I will try to keep my opinions to myself a bit more often or at least try to put them in a postitive light if that is possible.

Re: Zipper Tape Necklace

DITTO!! Can you imagine the looks and the snide remarks you would hear if you were stupid enough to wear this mess out in public? Most of your stuff is top notch and I rarely see something I don't like, this however, is just plain ridiculous! Even the model looks like she's saying " you have GOT to be kidding me!"

Re: Anglomania-Inspired Plaid Vest

I wouldn't wear the designer's because I think it looks sloppy but yours is perfect! You really matched the pattern on the material well and your vest looks store-bought, the true test of a well made garment in my opinion.

Re: Silk Organza Dress

This dress is really lovely. You really kept the designers inspiration but added your own touch to the dress to make it yours. I didnt think it would look good short but it does. Great Job!
