I have been looking everywhere for (black) pinstripe velvet fabric (for a blazer), but I can't seem to find any?
Does anyone know where I could find any?

Thank you so much!
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Futuristic/Apocalypse "Fallout" decorated Altoid tin. on: August 27, 2005 06:16:09 PM
Hey all,

I decopauged this Altoid tin with various futuristic images.  The inside is is plain black.
I had a lot of fun making this.. kind of comic book like.. or something someone might make from various newspaper clippings if they had been living through such a time.

13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Roses, vines and leaves polymer clay (Sculpey) mini treasure box. on: August 27, 2005 06:08:29 PM
Hey all,

The moment I saw redqueen's -beautiful- rose covered Altiod tin (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19132.0) I felt inspired to make one of my own!
I didn't use a tin as a base, so the box and lid don't quite line up right.. but this is my first try and I had a lot of fun making it (for my Grandma's birthday! Grin ).  Smiley

I have a question though: how might I make this look like a silver antique?

Thanks!

Hello all --

I am trying to find a pattern for an underbust corset like this:

I looked through the forums, but I can't seem to find much info on making underbust corsets in particular.
Does anyone have any info?

Thanks!

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / grungy skeleton cut-out shirt... with blood splatter (kind of image heavy, sry) on: August 02, 2005 10:04:46 AM
Greetings --

This shirt was made to look scrappy and grungy.. hopefully I achieved that effect, heh heh.
It started out as a $1 regular white v neck shirt I got at a thrift-type store.


^ Shirt on (1).


^ Shirt on (2).  (The rib cage is not really crooked like that in real.  My corpse deformed the fabric a bit in this picture.)


^ Front design.  I printed out a stencil, cut out the pieces on black fabric and sewed them onto the shirt.  Also sewed an old zipper on there.  Then I splattered the shirt with "Dye-na-Flow" dye stuff from Michaels.


^ Detail of stitching on the skeleton.  Made to look scrappy and pieced together on purpose.  Some of the stitches actually cover up stains or small holes.


^ Back of shirt.  The patch was placed to cover up a rather nasty stain.  It's not the same white.. eh, who cares, like any other part of the shirt is anything close to perfect.  Cheesy
There are also two D-rings on the shirt, one on each side seam, at the bottom of the shirt.


^ Detail of "Frankenstein" stitching on patch on the back of the shirt and blood splatter.


^ D-ring on side of shirt.

Well, that's it!
Thanks for looking.  Smiley
