I tried my best with the shading and I think it turned out pretty not bad I really had no idea what I was doing, but I learned a lot from doing so. I found this image online and I really like it because I am all for older film cameras.
I used this tutorial to make a hoopless hoop and it worked pretty well! The entire thing is as big as my hand.
The messy back is covered with felt, and I used some rat tail to make 2 loops for hanging.
Thank you for looking Expect to see more in the future, I am hooked!
I'm in an LDR right now, but not for much longer I wanted to make something for my boyfriend and I to commemorate it, as well as have pretty things to hang up on my new walls. And I have wanted to try needlework for a while now! Here it is, one of Kurt Halsey's drawings, which I have been a fan of for years now.
I think the boy's neck and shoulder are a little weird, and his hand too, but .. Oh well lol I'm human, I am allowed to make mistakes
Here is the back. My mom said my airplane looks like a fish. Maybe that wasn't a good part to work on satin stitches heheh
This was a fun project! I finally got to use the fabric that I have been eying for months. And I think I'm hooked, I already bought some more materials today to make more
Does anyone remember the Ribbed Lace Bolero (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181117.0)? I knitted it years ago, but it turned out way too big (GAUGE FAIL) so I tossed it in the closet. I found it again today and I literally could not frog it so I sewed the ends together into a tube and called it a cowl!
I thought the opening was kind of large so I crocheted a chain with hearts for a drawstring, so I can pull it in if I wanted to. Also... it just looks cuter
So... Now I know if I fail at a project, I could just re-re-purpose it into something else, instead of accumulating more stuff in my closet
I wanted to make a quilt for a Secret Santa recipient but I had never made one before! So most of the time I was winging it, but I guess my mind is perfect for making quilts because everything is so linear and structured, I loved it!
I asked my recipient's boyfriend what colors she likes and he said "pink, green, and black, just not all at once". He probably said it as a warning, but I took it as a challenge! I loved picking out flannel fabrics, I love the combination of the ones I chose that I sooo want to keep this for myself
The back and border is black broadcloth because it was on sale.
I should work on my measurements because I thought I would end up with a bigger quilt.
Well now I'm kinda hooked on quilts, I want to go fabric shopping for myself.
I've been living in a dorm for the past year, halfway across the world from home, so I don't have my beloved sewing machine with me My hands are itchin for some craftin, so I grabbed a pair of scissors and began cutting up a tee! No before picture, but you get the idea. I took inspiration from this video of Kat Von D: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtEoqwS5urc&feature=related. So easy, so hot!! The skirt is also a jeans to skirt recon
I ended up missing a tie on one side so that's why it's crooked, but I'm liking it lol
After about 3.5 hours of sewing, mindless pinning, and more sewing, I have a little black (and white) infinity dress for any occasion! I used the skirt pattern from Butterick 4788 because it didn't look as full as a circle skirt. My straps are 96 inches long (they were 100 inches, but I accidently cut off 4 inches off one so I had to do the same to the other haha). Oh, and the best part. $2US fabric!! LOVE~ It was a lot of fun finding ways to wear it, so here are a few (basic) styles I liked!
woohoo bunny censors! It was hard to get back pictures, so this will be the only one
(left) maybe too much skin for me, but still hot. (right) I think it's a cute look, but the straps kept slipping off me..
I really like the cap sleeves in the center! On the right, I pulled the waist band up above the bust, but my self-conscious-ness says the skirt becomes too short. Still cute, nonetheless.
I started with 4.5 yards of fabric, but I have a little over half a yard leftover. I might make a matching tube top or shorts for more options. I definitely need a few more of these, it was a very quick and versatile project!
HEY GUYS! After I finished watching a japanese drama called Nodame Cantabile, I fell in love with Nodame and the piano tote bag she carries around! Yeah, I could have bought it, but there's no fun in that. Plus, I'd probably have to pay a ton to have it shipped from Korea (T_T) So I made one of my own!
Screencaps to show the original
My very own Nodame piano tote! Lying on bed and on me to show size (wah! crazy after-shower hair!)
The zipper turned out pretty nicely (sewing zippers still makes me nervous), but that blasted corner!
I lined mine with gingham <3 and pockets
Piano keys = masking tape and acrylic paint
That's all (: It's pretty sturdy, both the outside and lining are interfaced. This has easily become my EVERYDAY bag, I love it! And of course, thanks for looking (:
