A delicious dress!

While browsing the internet I came accross this fabulous dress, in a rainbow of colours, made out of 50 000 Gummy Bears.

In 2012 Twelv Magazine recreated a Alexander McQueen dress using nothing but gummy bears (and vinyl and steel to hold It together). The dress reportedly weighed 220 pounds
Here is the original dress by Alexander McQueen

Here and here are some links to see more.
I also added this Google page for many pictures.
Have a wonderful weekend

The importance of colour.

How important is colour for you?
For me it is very important.
Some examples:
- Everytime I step into a room or house with brown curtains and beige walls, I want to turn around and get out.
- Years ago, when we moved into our house, we had ordered a new kitchen.
From the moment it was installed, I knew the colourscheme was wrong. It had some green in it, which didn't fit. I (unhappyily) had to live with it till recently.
- I don't feel happy when wearing brown or purple clothes.

This illustrates the impact  a colour can have on you.

Yesterday I came across this , the psychology of color by Freshome

This article clearly confirms how colour can affect our mood.
It gives advise on how to choose colours for your home.
But the same can apply to choosing the colour for your clothes and accessories.

Colour is so important for brightening up your life.
Don't you think so?
Have a nice weekend

The perfect loop or tube turner.

I found the perfect loop turner!
Untill now I used, or better, tried to use the Clover loop turner.
This one:
I found it very difficult to turn a loop, the fabric didn't stay under the clip.
Especially narrow loops are difficult to turn.
Currently I am working on a new project which involves a lot of tube turnings. I will tell you more about it when it's ready.
Recently I saw this tube turner on Utube:
 It has a blunt and a more pointed tip.
Turning loops has never been so easy!
This brilliant tool comes with clear instructions for use:
Here are some real examples: 
I pulled the stitched fabric tube (wrong side out) over the blunt tip of the tool.
Here , the tool is closed, 2 tips together. 

 I have pulled the fabric tube over to the other side.
This tool is also ideal for forming perfect corners without puncturing the fabric, by using the pointed tip.
I did an online search and bought mine here.
It is also available in this  online shop.
Have a nice weekend
