Toilet Paper Wedding Gowns and More

Lazies, If I ever run out of my fabric stash, I’m heading to the grocery store for some t-paper. We have a couple of fun finds to share today.

Yo-Yo s Are Here
First, an update from Clover Needlecraft – the new Quick Yo-Yo Makers have arrived and are in the process of shipping to distributors and store owners. Give it another week before you see them in stock at your favorite quilt shop.

Toilet Paper Wedding Dress
From Kathleen Fascinella’s Fahion-Incubator blog:

Speaking of wedding gowns, Sally sends a link to something truly weird. Toilet paper wedding gowns. Her friend who sent her the link (Inez Foose) says “When you think about it, one usually wears their gown only once, so why not make it disposable. Ideal for someone who expects a crappy marriage.” Ha ha ha ha ha. For those in the throes of task avoidance, the 2007 contest for best gown runs from May 1 to July 31, 2007 so it’s not to late to enter.

Renegade Craft Fair
Michaela Murphy had a nice post over at Be Sew Stylish regarding the Renegade Craft Fair in Hipster Brooklyn:

Renegade took place at McCarren Park Pool. We literally stepped into the pool and found ourselves in a sea of booths filled with all kinds of handmade goodies for us to ohh and ahh over.
