11  mexican skeletons, tweed echino and Gone with the wind in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: May 02, 2008 05:06:56 AM
I've been on a mad sewing craze in the last few months and here's 3 products of that. I tend to make up things as I go along which is fun but the amount of times I've had to unpick seams because I didn't think before I started sewing... grrrr. These are all made using the same pattern (made by me, woot).

This first one was the easiest to make and seems to be a hit with my mates.

Love this fabric - Mexican day of the dead skeleton celebration. Can't really tell in the photo but it has a bottom so can stand by itself, I shoved a piece of thick card in for stability.

For the next two I decided to use this extra extra extra heavy interfacing which was a really bad idea and made me swear lots. Like trying to make a bag out of cardboard.

Luckily I had enough of this fabric to make a skirt as well - it's so pretty! I used the same pattern but made the top part a bit bigger to show off more of the pretty fabric. The bottom part is from a charity shop jacket.

And lastly Gone with the Wind, the person on ebay had named the fabric and it kinda stuck when I was making it. I stole the handle from a bunch of stuff my sister gave me when she moved.

12  Purple Rockabilly skeleton skirt & bonus surprise! (pic hefty) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fugsly on: May 01, 2008 06:25:48 PM
This skirt was remade from an absolutely fabulous skirt I got from ebay (this girl does the most amazing fabrics herself, wish I could remember her name!). Edit: It's Kathrynpugwash

Unfortunately the skirt was huge on me so it sat around for a while looking pretty until I finally decided to make a wearable skirt from it. I don't have a before pic but there's not much difference. Just cut into it at the seam, figured out where it should sit and sewed it back together again. Oh and I also added another layer underneath as it was a tad see through.

This is also my first post!! Got mildly (ok, madly) obsessed with sewing over the last 6 months or so and have been on here pretty much every day since, lol. Love this site and all the brilliant ideas and help the members give. Anyways, been making a ton of things but thought I'd start by posting the first thing that really made me think "I wish I could sew". By the way, I now wear this skirt all the time.

The material for some reason is really flammable, there's a good sized whole there from a tiny cigarette ember. Can you flame proof clothing?

I know, awesome photo taking skills or what Smiley

And now for the amazing bonus surprise!! I had so much fabric left over (I did say it was a huge skirt) that I made this ultra cool little guy as well. Just one of the little skeleton guys cut out with purple faux fur on the back.
