Phenomenal! It looks like the outline of the letters is a different color in the two pictures. Is it like that irl?

Great job.

Ugh, I know what you mean with the short sleeves.

Great job. It looks wonderful.
24  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Squishy Strawberry (with instructions) on: November 24, 2008 02:39:16 AM
This was made for a friend's birthday.



It was pretty simple to make too, once I figured out how to do it.



The fruit is a red half circle sewn up to create a cone-shaped thing. And the tip is rounded.
I did a running stitch around the top of the cone, then stuffed it and pulled and secured the thread to close up the top.

It should look something like this:





The leaves are two pieces of this kind of shape

(but more even)

...sewn together and turned inside out.

The stem thing is a rectangle and a circle sewn together to make a bottomless cylinder, then handsewn to the top of the leaves. If you pull the thread tight, it should make the leaves wrinkly like this


I hope you can understand that. If not, please ask me about it.

That's really great for a first try. I love what you did. It's too great a picture to be left the way it was. Bit more practice and you'll be loads better.
26  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / A Happy Marshmallow for a Happy Marshmallow on: November 23, 2008 11:12:25 PM
This was a gift for my friend's birthday.



It is a marshmallow.
Marshmallow is one of her nicknames or something and it was kind of made last minute so this is what I made her.

Some people have told me that it looks like ghost (which is what I thought initially) but she knows it's a marshmallow, so it doesn't matter.

Here is the tag I attached to it


It was pretty easy to make too. It was 2 circles (the top and bottom), and a rectangle (the middle) with the eyes and mouth sewn on before it was sewn to the top and bottom.

I'm sorry those were not very good instructions, but really, I think you can figure it out.

29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I had to make an LBP, I had to on: November 22, 2008 12:11:34 AM
So my first attempt at a dress didn't really go well. I got good comments on it, but it wasn't made well and it was uncomfortable. Here it is:

(Just the dress. The jacket was bought.)

So after seeing this: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0
And the many posted on Craftster (sorry for posting another one) I had to at least try it.

So I cut up that dress and made this (the blouse was bought)

Front:


Back:


And I love it. I've worn it out a couple of times and have gotten great comments on it. (Though credit is given where credit is due.)

The only problem I have with it is the zipper. I used this cheap zipper and it only works if you work on zipping for a while. Otherwise, the teeth don't lock together well and this happens:
30  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Costumes: Daria, Cheshire Cat, (Sort of) Alice on: November 20, 2008 09:24:16 PM
So I was Daria this Halloween.


I made the jacket and skirt from scratch. Bought the orange shirt. And the "boots" were just lace up flats worn with long black socks.
I wish you could see the skirt better, the pleats took forever...


Originally, two of my friends wanted us to do an Alice in Wonderland theme. But I didn't really want to and neither did most others.

So it ended up not going through, but the two who wanted to do it kept with their ideas.
So drawing from this image:

(I don't know where they got it from)

I did this:

I'm really proud of the top because it was the first successful fitted top I've made with non-stretch fabric.
Everything was done from scratch except for the shorts, which were old pajama pants hemmed, and covered with the pink and purple stripes.

Yeah and the stripes were all individually sewn together.

As for Alice, the costume started out great, but we didn't actually really get to work on it until a few hours before we left to go out on Halloween.

We were working on several other people's costumes simultaneously (White Rabbit, Pirate, etc.)
So uh it didn't turn out good. The only picture I have of it (reasonably, since she probably didn't want to remember wearing the outfit, and I don't really want to remember that I made it, or helped make it) is this:


The dress was too short, the bust was too tight, the seams were puckering and uneven, and crooked. And blah blah blah the list goes on.

So now we know that we should start now in order to get our costumes done in time for Halloween next year.
