  1. Well, [i]now[/i] I have. 🙂
    I don’t have pictures (or the knowhow to put them online if I did, but a lot of my friends are great at making costumes).

  2. I’m not sure if knitting counts. finished making a tri colour scarf for a family member o/s. and in the middle of designing the next knitting pattern.

  3. Wow, that is gorgeous.
    I recently bought a headband from LolaBlossom on Etsy; she makes some fantastic, reasonably priced stuff, plus, the money raised goes to the Autism Society of America.

  4. I haven’t done much myself recently but my 7 year old has taken up back-strap weaving, his first ever project can be seen here:

    And here he is in action:

  5. This is my wedding dress. The design was based loosely on a vintage Gunne Sax design (they made most of the hippy flower girl dresses in the 60’s). It was created and constructed by Georgianna L***** (name protected because I didn’t actually ask her if she wants her name spread over the internet, although anyone who would like to contact her, I’d gladly relay that to her). My now-husband and I sewed the pearls on; the picture of him sewing is one of my favorite from the wedding.
    Front of the dress:

    Back of the dress.

    Greg sewing:

    The dress is all wrinkly because I haven’t had a chance to have it cleaned and pressed since the big day.

  6. Oh wow, that’s gorgeous auralchick!
    The pic of Greg sewing makes my knees and back ache in sympathy, I love that he was involved in the creation of the dress 🙂

  7. I’m glad you asked. I recently overhauled a garment which had taken me months of work, but which was unwearable because of its bulk and shaping, and made it into something I can wear and enjoy. Blogged here and here.
    And mackey, if knitting doesn’t count I’m a dead duck! 🙂
