I know it's taken me a while to get this going, but here was my final entry in SoYouThinkYou'reCrafty - - -
Thanks so much for sticking with me all Season long, and for letting me be a part of SoYouThinkYou'reCrafty - it's been great!
A quick how-to:
First measure. For your waist measurement, be sure it's big enough to fit over your whole lower half. I hold my measuring tape in one spot and try slipping it up and down like I'm trying it on - if it's hard to fit the circle over your booty, then it'll be hard to fit the skirt over it :) Then add 1 inch for seams. You'll also need to measure from your high waist to a little past your knee - add 2 inches to this for hemming.
For the bib necklace I just made some of those flat tulle flowers along with some rolled flowers from the scraps of my skirt. Some I even rolled the fabric and tulle up together for a combo. Then I hot-glued them on to some felt and cut around the glue-on parts so you can't see the felt from the front. I glued on beads and jewels I had laying around, and I even glued on the ribbon. It just ties around your neck.
I know the instructions are probably lacking, so please let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to explain things a little better for you. - - Mandy
Oh, and I'm using this to enter Crafting With the Stars (yes, I might be slightly addicted to craft blog competitions.....)
