11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Estelle awesome bag on: April 04, 2009 11:42:19 AM
Using the Estelle handbag pattern (-> http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3866) I made this awesome bag for my sisters birthday.



Instead of two handles, I made just one long one for a shoulder bag. She has two toddlers, so a handbag probably isn't the most useful bag to have.
It was super easy to make, and it turned out pretty great. The fabric came from a dress that didn't fit anymore, and the lining is rather thick and bought for 0,50.



I love it, too bad I made it for my sister...  Roll Eyes
12  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Go on, throw it on: March 12, 2009 01:00:15 AM
Sooo... This Valentine's was special because my boyfriend and I were celebrating it together for the first time. We've been together for 3 years and he lives in Australia, I live in Germany, and we only see each other twice a year. This year I made sure he booked a flight which included the 14th.  Wink
This is one of the things I made for him:


A foam brick!
He hates his laptop, and he once punched a hole into his old one, so I thought a foam brick would help him but not break things he need (important things which are used to communicate with me!)

I bought a square sponge, used a carpet knife to carve out the centre to make it look more brick-like, then pretty much dipped it into brown paint and added the finishing touches with black paint and let it dry in the sun for a day or two.

It says "The Brick Aggressionator 4000. Go on, throw it, you know you want to."

He loved it:



Thanks for looking! Smiley
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Amazingly cool first bag on: December 30, 2008 09:09:12 AM
I was lucky enough to have an internship at our local theatre. There I learned a whole lot of new things, and they helped me sew a very nifty bag. I was allowed to go find fabric in their huge fabric room and it was like heaven!
Anyway, I used Artsy-Crafty Babe's pattern (-> http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/artsycrafty_babe/2007/06/pleated_tote_pa.html ) and the most amazing fabric I've ever seen!

Close up of fabric and the lining.

A better picture of the whole bag

The inside. Not very clear. I made an inside pocket out of the lining. And added a press button.


I still have some of the fabric left (they let me keep it =D!) and I think it'd look super as a beret  Grin
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old ugly granny's turtleneck into.. oops, it was a cashmere turtleneck !!! on: May 06, 2008 01:19:52 AM
My gran gave me a load of too big tops this weekend and told me to not under any circumstances cut them up. So what do I do? Cut them up =)

She gave me this not very good looking turtleneck


And I turned it into this good looking top


Up close


I actually wanted to make a boob tube kind of top, but I messed up while cutting it.
While I was sewing it all together I noticed the tag inside and uh oh, 50% cashmere and 50% silk. She'll have my head if she ever finds out, so shhh  Wink
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Weeeee, summer clothes! on: April 17, 2008 11:30:58 AM
Summer's nearly there (hard to believe when it's still snowing in parts of Germany...) and therefore clothes are needed!
I am a skirt freak, so I made another skirt to add to the collection. My mom is jealous. Haa  Cool


Close up of the fab

The metre of fabric only cost me 2,50 and I mean, can you get any cheaper?

I also made a summer top. The neckline is low, really low, but a top underneath will do.



And both together:

Yay!
Comments?
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shirr me some love on: April 05, 2008 03:33:35 AM
I saw this in some mag and was all =O I really really wanted the top -> (My phone camera doesn't like taking photos of magazines..)
So I cut out two squares from some very sweet fabric, sewed them together and shirred the top and bottom. Out came this:

My dress form feels naked without underwear...

I also added straps that you tie



Here you can see the cute fabric somewhat. It's white with near to invisible little brown flowers all over.
I also wanted to make the skirt part of the original dress, but I couldn't find the right fabric to go with the top.
So, what do you say/think?
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cute pattern top on: March 26, 2008 01:41:23 PM
I finally got my sewing machine fixed, and made this top. I got the pattern from a Burda magazine (But you could probably draw up one yourself, it's pretty simple)

The neckline is way too low, so I'll probably do what I always do when the neckline is too low and just wear another top underneath.

The close up of the fabric, which is way cute.
I made a load of sewing mistakes while making this, but I was way too lazy to fix it up. I'm not sure yet if I'll actually wear it, or turn it into a cute bag. We'll see
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ipod (or not ipod) cookie monster cozy on: March 12, 2008 01:31:09 PM
So, I saw this -> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181257.0 and neeeeded to make it since my mp3 player just got back from being repaired.
I only had white and purple wool lying around although I wanted it to look just like cold.dinner's cozy. But I never actually do get things the way I want them. =( But this turned out really good and I'm happy =D
It looks a lot like the cookie monster, and I love it =D

(Sorry about the crappy phone photo, it was getting dark and clever phone doesn't have flash)
What do you think? Should I add arms like cold.dinner's cozy had?
