1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Leather Corset Outfit - Pirate Queen! on: December 23, 2012 11:09:24 AM
So the fashion show was a GONG SHOW.

It was really disorganized, and the models had no time to change - which means my model was barely dressed when she walked out wearing this. Unfortunately, the photographers didn't take the most awesome photos either Sad

I blogged about it, and there's photos there: http://divina-denuevo.com/runway-show-re-cap-the-ice-ball/
(Mods, I'm not sure if that's not allowed - if it isn't let me know and I'll upload the photos here, i wasjust trying to save time).

Those look very nice.  Do you have better pictures of the notebook inside?  Is it bound on the top or bottom?  Does the notebook cover slide into pockets in the leather to secure it inside?

The note book is just a standard mead 5 star 7.5" x 5" notebook, spiral bound. There are pockets/sleeves on either side for the front and back covers to slip into, which is what holds it in place. This way you can continue to use the leather journal cover well after you've filled the journal up.

Ok, I really shouldn't be posting this because I made it for a fashion show that's happening next month, and the whole point of the fashion show is to reveal new pieces.. but, I'm super proud of how it came out, and.. well, I figure none of you guys are going to be at the show anyway Smiley

Since we work with leather (mainly bags and accessories) this was a new thing for me. We're partnered up with a swimwear line called "Jolly Roger" so we agreed to go with a pirate theme. I have two girls walking the runway, and this is the final outfit, for my 'pirate queen' as it were..

Anyway - here you go!

The feathers are detachable, with a snap on either side. For, you know, when she's going to battle or something.

Before you say anything, the corset is deliberately asymmetrical. So the point under the bust is meant to not be centered. Though I don't think people will realize that and they'll probably just think I can't measure - lol.

The belt is actuall attached to the corset, starts at the front and works its way all the way around.

And finally, the back

So.. what do you think!?

Thanks everyone!

love these! i would love to have one. does every journal come with information about the key that comes with it? its like a tiny piece of history. Smiley

Yes! That's exactly why we do it! We used to just tell people the story behind their key, but we decided it would be better to be able to have it there as a reminder. We keep track of where all the keys come from and make new labels for every group of keys. I print them at home in small batches Smiley

I've been off Craftster too long, so I'm back. Our leather journals which we started making last fall, have become pretty popular so I wanted to show them off.

Thanks Megan!

The measurements are 10" x 9" x 4.5".

It's not lined - I'mworking on a padded insert for camera equipment, but most of the feedback we've gotten is that it's more of a cool looking messenger/satchel rather than camera bag.

It's been too long, craftsters!

Here's one of our newest designs - it's our Kirkaldy Camera Bag. It's been a definite attention grabber, but we need to make it abit bigger, I think, so that people can fit their laptop etc in there. Right now it's just not tall/wide enough.

What do you guys think?

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Discussion and Questions / Image transfer and printing onto leather on: May 16, 2012 01:50:21 PM
Hi everyone,
I'm wondering if anyone knows how to print on leather.
This etsian does amazing work printing on to leather (http://www.etsy.com/shop/TinderandBloom), and I'm trying to figure out how to do it. I found a blogger who said they used t-shirt-transfers, but that didn't quite work out very well at all.
I'm starting to think about using tattoo paper!

Any ideas or suggestions?
