1  Toddler couture! (img heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ashleyjustine on: November 29, 2009 05:22:51 PM
For Christmas this year I wanted to make my three-year-old sister a purse. My goal was to make it look like a designer purse, if designers made purses for toddlers :] The sewing is a little rough..partly because I am lazy, but also because I am not worried about being judged by someone who is 3.




Zebra liner!




 They are supposed to be two backwards "d's" for "Delaney", i was trying to play on the Chanel logo. I got out my gemagic and went to town. I know it's really sloppy, but I think that's what gives it it's charm Smiley

here's the matching wallet I made her
 



it came complete with money because according to Delaney, everything costs $50.


and all of the goodies inside to help her be just like sissy Smiley

2  round four in Needlework: Completed Projects by ashleyjustine on: October 13, 2009 01:58:04 PM
so my other best friend ALSO turned 21 last weekend, so I made her a bag as well. She loved it so much she cried....which was awesome in my book.



I made my own pattern by doing a google image search for "uterus" printing off a medical diagram, tracing said diagram with an iron on pencil and the transferring it onto a canvas tote.

Ovaries are blanket stitch..sorta...and everything else is satin.







Pretty polka dot liner w/ pockets


and for the finishing touches: happy sperm and tampon charms :]

all back stitch and the studs are iron-ons

and I sewed in a zebra print liner :]

5  First time embroidery :] in Needlework: Completed Projects by ashleyjustine on: October 13, 2009 01:03:55 PM
So I decided to start doing embroidery....without actually knowing how.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?action=post;board=80.0

My expectations were actually pretty low when I started this, and I ended up surprising myself.


The design is just something I free handed onto a tote bag, if anyone was wondering.

(satin &&back stitch)





hopefuly washing it will get out the pencil marks >_<

6  Oogie Boogie in Halloween Costumes by ashleyjustine on: November 01, 2008 04:48:42 PM
My friend Robert decided in August he wanted to be oogie boogie from the nightmare before Christmas, and I am the only friend he has that is capable of making anything...so I got suckered into making it. This was a very heavy costume to sew, and I am super glad just to be done with it.

It's mostly made of burlap. I stuffed it using polyester fill and lined it with muslin and then hand sewed the front and back together with twine. For the mask I used wire to form the eyes and mouth and then sewed some mesh on the inside. In case you're wondering how he gets into the suit I sewed a zipper up the back for him too.

You can't see in the picture, because I snapped it before I was actually done, but I left a part of the seam open and sewed bugs into it because I love the part of the movie where oogie unwinds and bugs fall out.



I left a part of the seam on the side open and glued some creepy crawlies into it



here's a picture of Oogie, in case anyoneneeds their memory jogged <333

Here is the oogie boogie costume I made for my spoiled friend. It's mostly made of burlap. I stuffed it using polyester fill and lined it with muslin and then hand sewed the front and back together with twine.




Here's a close-up of the bug detail I added to the side.

9  Freddy Krueger puppy costume! in Halloween Costumes by ashleyjustine on: October 27, 2008 08:05:39 PM
Everyone, I would like for you to meet bubble. Bubble is dressing up as Freddy Krueger for Halloween this year :]







Rawr! :]

I know...Bubble looks better, lol.


The costume was super easy. I just cut the sleeve off of an old shirt ( lucky me, chihuahuas are arm sized) and then I punched some holes in a doll hat and strung some elastic so it would stay on his head. Don't worry, I made sure it's not too snug. I'm already making the poor baby dress up...I'm not gunna make him uncomfortable too.

you could be blaziken instead.....you could pretty much just make yourself pants and a shirt then...or be butterfree and make your own wings ^.^ zatu would also be easier than koffing....that's all I can think of that would be easy and still cool...I could always go look at my pokedex if you want more ideas (why yes...I am comfortable admitting to owning a pokedex)


also, the female trainers outfit from diamond and pearl is really cute, one of you could dress up like that
