1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sock zoo! on: March 03, 2008 10:25:11 AM
hi all,

so we've all seen or probably made a sock monkey...well, i took a shot at it too, and made some friends to accompany him. meet my argyle friend ibrahimovic and his flowery pink friend 河馬2號 (hippo no. 2):

another view of hippo no. 2

why is he hippo no. 2? because 河馬 (hippo) is right here. he's supposed to be a white dog, but while i was sewing him my boyfriend's mom came in and said in chinese, "oh...you are making a hippo, right?" *falls over* she thought the black cat in the picture was a mouse too.  Cry cat's name is miau.



miau's cousin, which has no name because my mom took it as soon as i finished. "eh, so cute! how about you give this one to mommy??  Wink" what can i say? she really likes hello kitty...Cheesy


my sister also saw ibrahimovic and demanded i make her one...two, actually. one for her and one for her boyfriend.
the socks were old and so their heads were shaped like feet, so i took some gloves and made them hats:


thanks for looking! Cheesy
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / first recon! fat pants into miniskirt! on: March 01, 2008 06:44:00 PM
Hi guys,

So this is my first attempt at reconstructing clothes! I don't have a sewing machine (yet...i'm hoping this will sway my parents into pitching in for one) so all these seams were hand sewn...took too long, if you ask me. i used whatthecraft.com's tutorial for a circle skirt as reference. i think she posts here so...thanks! Cheesy
so would you guys deem this wearable in public?? i don't want to walk around thinking i'm all cool and stuff when i...don't.  Lips sealed
the thing that bugs me is that i effed up the back...so i tried to gather it and then put a rosette there to make it look all fancy pants(and to cover it up), but now i think it looks a little strange. does it look okay or should i go back and fix it?? i wanted to add more rosettes out of the scraps in the front, but i thought it might be too much.

and the back:

be honest please Smiley thank you for looking!
