111  Pants to "waist cincher" in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: October 06, 2008 04:53:56 PM
So, I had these old corduroy pants that didn't fit so I thought I'd make them into this waist cincher I found a tutorial on and fell in love with and knew I HAD to make.
But yes, It came out a little big, and the last tab is crooked but I THINK I like it XD
http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/5104124.html#cutid1
I used this tutorial.
It was my first time doing button holes and actually sewing buttons onto something.
But yeah, I think I like it.


I added four tabs because I hate odd numbers and I'm crazy like that... so yeah. I think I'll make a better one out of some jeans I have that don't fit as well.... we'll see.
But yes.
Thats it :]

112  First synthetic dreads! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 24, 2008 01:55:32 PM
I've been wanting some for a while now, so I bought some hair and started to make some.
I still have a pack of hot pink and most of the black hair left, so this isn't completed yet. But I just HAD to post it :]
I think they look okay for my first ones. I cant wait to get them done so I can see how they all look on  Tongue

113  Cuppy cake lolita inspired skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 24, 2008 01:42:23 PM
*Sigh*
So, I stayed home sick today. Yesterday I came home early from school with a sore throat, and today I have an incredibly stuffy nose -_-
So yes, I decided to do something productive so I crafted.
I made this skirt out of some cuppycake fabric I stole from my mom Tongue and some lace.
Its a little short (all my "circle skirts" keep coming out mad short.... I think I need a new method @_@)
but I think I may get to wear it, sometime.


and once again, stressing the fact that this is lolita inspired.

114  Reinvent <3 and mustaches in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 23, 2008 05:14:46 PM
Yaaaaaaay! Cheesy
I just finished these necklaces.
I used the plastic lid from a sammich tray thing and some permanent markers to make these.

(Keep your "Reinvent <3" shirts, I got a necklace Grin one of a kind suckaaa)

Wooot.
I love making necklaces!



Also:
I came up with the idea for the "reinvent <3" necklace on my own, and had not seen it anywhere before. I would appreciate it if no one would reproduce it, cause yeah. :[ I cant stop you if you do, it would just make me sad to see a bunch of clones of my "original" creation. Hope you understand.

116  Bats and vampire fangs. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 13, 2008 10:32:39 PM
This is my first post in the jewelry section Shocked
and there will be plenty more where this came from
I have a new love of making jewelry.



I just finished these bad boys and I'm SUPER excited.
The first is a necklace out of this rubber bat I got at the 99 cent store (halloween decorations. They had suction cups on the tums! haha. I took them off XD)

I love it!
I have two more bats and I'm not sure if I want to put them both on one necklace or two seperate ones. Hmm...
Anyhoo,
next is this one made out of glow in the dark vampire fangs! :3 (Also from the 99 cent store halloween section. It was a "makeup kit" with the fangs and white, red, and black makeup. I threw the makeup out, haha. I only wanted the fangs.)
I loooooooove it as well.


I can't wait to make more!

117  Boo! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 13, 2008 02:28:39 PM
Today is my crafty day Cheesy
I made three things today, one you can see in the regular clothing section, and yeah Cheesy More soon, I hope.


So first I made this baseball tee out of a black tshirt and some fabric with "boo!" printed all over it.
I did a chaos stitch on the ends of the sleeves and I loooove it Cheesy



Then I made this thing, I'm not sure what to call it. (I call it a brooch in the pic but Iono if thats right...)
I still need to figure out what I'll use it for.
I used a tape measure, a bat ring and two pins.

118  Just one, a skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Boo_its_Brittany on: September 13, 2008 02:23:42 PM
Its been so long since I've posted, or it feels like it has been.
So, today I woke up around seven forty five, as apposed to my normal afternoon wake up time on weekends, and decided to get crafty.

I came up with this lolita-esque skirt out of light blue damask fabric, elastic, and lace. And so I don't get my head bitten off, I don't claim to be a lolita, or that my skirt is 100% authentic "lolita", but it is inspired by lolita fashion and such. Anyhoo, I love it very much but it is a bit short so I may add another layer of fabric and lace. Iono.

and here it is with my rainbow tutu underneath to make it poof.

(I trimmed my tutu as well and now its ugly :[)

120  Buggy Bubble-ish Skirt NOW WITH TUTORIAL!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Boo_its_Brittany on: July 23, 2008 08:15:41 PM
So, I've been wanting a bubble skirt for a while now.
I made this one out of some left over bug fabric and elastic.
Its super simple but I love it.
I just need to fix the bottom band. Its a little big.


and yeah
:]


Alright, so heres my tutorial for this skirt.
If you need help understanding, I'll answer any questions you may have.




For this skirt you will need elastic, fabric, and you're sewing machine/needle and thread. Obviously. First off is fabric. The poofyness of your skirt results from how long your fabric is to begin with. Mine could wrap around me once and a half or so. Cut out how ever much fabric you think is good, depending on how ruffly you want the top to be, and set it on an ironing table/surface whatever. Then take your iron and fold down the edge of the fabric a tiny bit and iron. Then fold the fabric over again. This is gonna be the casing for your elastic waistband. Iron it and pin.



Pop your copy of "Pretty. Odd." in to the cd player for some great sewing tunes
Shake your bum to Nine in the Afternoon while ironing.
Sing loudly so the neighbors can hear.
Cheesy
*optional ;]



Okay, back to business. Sew your casing. At the end of the top, cute out a little square. This will help when feeding your elastic through. Pin the skirt ends together starting fron UNDER!!!! the waistband casing. And sew.



Cut enough elastic to fit around your waist. Fold over and iron your bottom hem. Sew it down. Measure around your legs where you want the bottom of the skirt to be.



Then, feed the elastic waistband into the casing and sew the hole closed.



Sew the edges of the elastic together and sew it to the bottom of the skirt, stretching it as you go.Even out the top and dance around cause you're done Cheesy
POST ANY PICS OF SKIRTS YOU MAKE USING THIS TUTORIAL Cheesy
I'd love to see them. Mehehe
