21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Trinket Covered bed = Very burnt fingers!! on: May 04, 2009 12:47:35 PM
When I saw the button covered sofa entry for decorate with buttons, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=299469.0 I immediatly scanned my room for something to cover!!
And seeing as my bed was the first thing i saw, i figured i'd go with it. So here it is!!!

I stuck all sorts on here, jewellery, shells, bottle tops, figurines, and of course, buttons.
There's still a couple of areas that need building up, they look a little bare!!

( sorry for the mess!!!)

Sorry about the blurry pics, im sure they fine when i took them!! Arg. I will try take some better ones!!!

A couple of bits have fallen off, so im working up the courage to get the glue gun out and stick them on again, as i am really good at burning myself!
Haha, I am planning to go up the posts, too. Its sooo addictive Cheesy
Thanks for looking!!!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Fantasy Collection :D on: April 27, 2009 12:20:52 AM
So, for our last project at college we were allowed to do whatever we liked, so i set my brief as being recycled, and set in another world.
Most of the things are recycled, bar the sack cloth, and the canvas fabric for the trousers.
I made 4 outfits, based on 4 characters who lived in the world.

All together:

The Water Goddess, Tethys. This outfit was made from a new but modified bikini, and the fabric was new. I was going to use an old Bikini, but my tutor said it was unhygienic.

Child of the Wood. The dress was an old nightie, and the sleeves are form an old shirt, and the lace is from lace curtains Smiley. The leg warmers are from an old jumper.

The back of the Princess ( And the model for the Child of the wood didn't seem to take the 'nude underwear!!' Advise.  Cheesy The princess dress is made from an chiffon night top, and from scraps of fabric, the lace is one maaaasive lace curtains.

And the Villager. I cheated here, pretty much all of this outfit is new  Roll Eyes

I loved doing this project, very very much, it taught me alot, as lots of things worked, but more things didn't!!
I would LOVE your C+C!!!
Oooh! Theres lots more chatter and info about it on my blog if your interested Cheesy !!

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nightie to Naughty Faerie Dress :) on: March 22, 2009 03:25:28 PM
Yep, I was on a hippie Faerie binge. Heres another piece of faerie Clothing i made:

I dont think Lauren was quite ready for that photo!! haha

So, i took a nightie from a table top sale, ( I have no idea what these are called in America...If there called the same, please feel free to laugh!!)
And some sleeves from an old jumper/sweater, I turned the sleeves upside down and sewn button holes in them, with buttons on the straps of the dress, so you can remove them if its warm, and some pretty leaves a round the bust Smiley Not a major Recon, but enough!!
Another Photie:

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Random Table Runner(?) Into Faerie Skirt ! on: March 22, 2009 03:16:19 PM
So, I found this gorgeous fabric at a charity shop, I have no idea what it was, two, long thin strips?? I guessed it was a table runner?
Anywhoo, I I also found this pattern, and knew they were destined to be together Smiley
I mucked up matching the pattern a little i think, but in the end it kinda looked cute that way Smiley

Thanks to Lauren Smiley

As always, C+C are loved very muuuch!

29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Molly The Dolly on: January 10, 2009 02:22:54 PM

I have Finaly made a doll after lookign at all the beautifull ones here !
I decided to make a Dolly for my baby cousin, for Christmas ( Yes, its taken this long to get round to posting !!) and I didnt want to make a 'cute girlie' dolly, as its not my style, and I dont think its my Aunts either !

Anyway, I decided to make 'Molly the Dolly' (My Papa named her). She lives in a flowerpot and lives in the bottom of the garden! Where she looks after all the bugs and flowers, and has other general adventures with her friends.
I so,so,so enjoyed making Molly, and im going to try to do lots more !!

I made her dress from scratch, its patchwork, and took me ages !! Those squares are TINY!!! but it was worth it i think!
She also has a frilly blouse and bloomers Smiley oh ! and a little hat, that was WAY to small once she greww all that hair  Wink
My fave bit is her hair, which is made from yarn and a wooly jumper (sweater) that I un-threaded in places. It also has beads and pretty things in too !

Sorry about the picture quality, Molly is hiding from the bitter,bitter cold, and my camera likes to be quite rubbish sometimes !!
Ohk, I think ive talked for quite enough, Sorry !!! ( just verry excited!!))  Roll Eyes Ahem, so here is Molly The Dolly:

Say hello Molly ! Oh! There are some felt dreads in there too!

Taking refuge in the Faerie House!( can you see here stripey socks !!)

With the hat :S Checking out the toadstools!

The Haaaaair !!!!

And the Dress!!

I gave her to my cousin in  flower pot with a wooly cover on it --- forgot to take pics Angry  an a little book with photos tellin glucy ( my cousin ) what she likes to do etc (which got sucked in 5 mins... Cry

If you managed to read ALL of this post and survived, THANK-YOU!!  And If you looked at the pics, Thanks !!
Please give me you Comments and critism, as i know theres some faults and really want to know how i can improve!!!
