1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / my sexy face mug (img hvy) on: April 06, 2010 12:21:43 PM
Last year in ceramics we had an assignment to make a face mug, mine started as a wanna-be johnny cash then started to morph into this. Then I glazed him wayyy to much which ended up being perfect for my taste, except for the fact that he got stuck to the kiln shelf hah
on to pictures Cheesy

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / two spring skirts on: January 07, 2010 02:15:22 PM
I made two summer skirts while watching about 8978972 hours of the secret life saved on my tv.


the first was made out of a thrifted dress that I have reconed about 4 times.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254815.msg2842609#msg2842609

so now its this.....


bad ass jump rope for heart shirt hun? hah

I basically just cut up the old dress and made a big cylinder then gathered the top and sewed on the elastic, in the process sewing into my finger nail Sad

then I made this out of a thrifted muumuu. I did the same as the first but since the fabric had no stretch I added a top band and an exposed zipper in the back


(zipper)


I had a nightmare with the fabric unraveling around the zipper so i added muslin bias tape then sewed the zipper over it to reinforce it.

sorry no before pictures

C&C appreciated
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Butterick retro 1957 senor dinner dance dress :] on: June 16, 2009 02:03:23 PM
Wow its been forever since I've posted but I swear I've been busy

I wanted a cute dress for our senor dinner dance and i made this in one day with help from my mom

Sorry since this was about a month ago I dont have any pictures of just the dress, they are all action shots haha



4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tube dress on: January 23, 2009 09:31:53 AM
Yesterday I came home from school super bummed that we didnt have school the next day (today)
so i thought I'd cheer myself up buy actually starting on one of my new years resolutions
which is to make at least 5 dresses for myself that I would be completely satisfied with (the key point is that I have to be happy with them)
and well
I took off the shirt I was wearing and made it into a dress hah
sorry totally forgot to take a before picture
(actually i think before pictures jinx me)
it was just a tshirt ,pretty fitted but stretched out at the bottom
I bought the shirt for like $3 at the thrift store a long time ago
and I used a nasty black stretch shirt my mom gave me a while ago
its basically a tube with a stretchy tube attached
on to the pictures!
as a shirt

as a dress

as a shirt (with a safety pin)


i forgot to take more pictures but I have literally found like 10 different ways of wearing it
so im pretty happy with it :]
ALSO please excuse the headband hah its actually the neck of the original shirt and i thought it looked funny on my head.

For Advanced Graphic Arts class we made a notebook with a laminated cover and a thick board back cover
there are lined pages (designed by me) and blank pages (or my massive amounts of doodles)
they are bound with a spiral thinger
the machine that punches the holes and bound the back was so cute
it literally must have been like 50 years old
well here it is

10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / bettie page dont tread on me costume on: November 02, 2008 08:24:11 AM
so last week I went to a halloween party and i didnt know that I was going until like the day before
needless to say, being the crafty person I am (not) I desided to change my then costume (gogo from killbill) to bettie page from the painting Dont Tread on Me


heres the ready to buy costume


I made the dress out of red vinyl and the slip/petticoat is black lace and tulle
no the best but in the end I'm pretty happy with the result
I also ended up ripping the dress apart like 3 times to fix the bottom
haha
well ont to the pictures of me
unfortunately I didnt think to just get one picture of me sorry


me and my hotdog boyfriend
:]
the only downside to my dress is that I'm extremely tiny in thr chest area so i basically walked around holding my boobs up hah but it was worth it
the bottom pictures are from Halloween I didnt get pictures of the dress from the party (and yes the dress was different at the bottom)
