I volunteered as a swap angel for the 'Amazing Hoodie Swap' for nikkisixx666 and I made this bunnyhug (in Saskatchewan, hoodies are called bunnyhugs) from scratch out of some black soft fleecy fabric, and hot pink felt. I machine sewed the hoodie and the unicorn/stars were handsewn. I came up with my own pattern for it...here's the pics!
This is the front of it:

I'm glad nikkisixx666 liked it...i think i'm now officially addicted to making hoodies.
Okay, i made this for a swap. My partner recieved today, so I can post it now! It was my first attempt at journal making, it's a sewn journal made with coptic stitch...I added a button closure. The cover I painted freehand. Obviously, my stitching isn't the greatest (straightest) LOL but it was a fun thing to make, I'd definitely like to make more. Anyways here's the pic:
Okay, so I started with these plain, boring, tan sandals I found in the 'get rid of' box in the basement:
What I did with them is: I first cut off the strap part, cut a cover for them out of a shiny silky pink material, sewed that to the strap. The hard part then, was re-attaching the straps to the sandals, which I hand-sewed on with stitches that looked like little X's along the sides. After that came the fun part: going crazy with black, white, and metallic pink paint. Here's my finished result:
Oookay, so i bought this fabric (it's flannel pyjama stuff) because I just thought it was hilarious: skeleton bats with the words 'Boney Bats'...i originally wanted to make a pants but then i hadn't enough fabric, so I just whipped up this sweatshirt thingy. The see-through part is black netting...i wanted something a little different. The neckline sticks up kinda funny, but after working on this for several hours, i didnt feel like fixing it.
Here it is just lying on a bed.
Action shot: the front of it...lol just ignore my face it was early in the morning, still had some sleep in my eyes
