1  Squid Pants in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by imnotasuperhero on: October 13, 2008 08:04:39 PM
I just got a new sewing machine for my birthday and I finally got a chance to sit down and crank out some pants. I get really disapointed about the lack of cute boys clothes, girls get frills and ruffles and sparkles and boys get nothing. So I made some embellished cut boys pants. I made my own pattern by tracing a pair of my sons pants.

I used a freezer paper stencil to put the squid on these



My SO thinks these look a little girly, honestly I don't think they are that girly. The circles are reverse appliqued.



I'll try to get some action shots in the morning, the kiddo is fast asleep, I just couldn't wait to show them off!

5  pretty pretty parasol! in Completed Projects by imnotasuperhero on: March 02, 2006 03:00:58 PM
after months of waiting the dollar store finally had the little kid umbrellas back so i bought one and made this pretty little thing



and an action shot


and another action shot so you can see the inside

(thats my bf being silly)

you dont really get the colour from the pictures, it is acctually a kind of cream colour, very vintage feeling.
it was really easy to make, i just took the original fabric off, made pattern peices from it and sewed it together with lace on the edges.  the toughest part was sewing the little end do-hickies that attach to the ribs, it was kinda tedious. but totally worth it, coz i now have a cute parasol.

6  it was supposed to be a hoodie... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by imnotasuperhero on: January 13, 2006 12:55:14 AM
today i decided to make a black hoodie. so i got some black sweatshirt fabric and set to work.  i drafted a pattern from a hoodie i love dearly(got it for christmas, and have basicly not taken it off since) and quickly realized that i was not going to have enough fabric to make a hood.  hence the funky collar.  i also discoverd that i have lost my zipper foot, so the zipper is all wonky, but i enjoy it immensly( ever since finishing it about ten minutes ago)

me wearing it, before i put in the pockets


my bed wearing it, after sewing on the pockets. I think the lace really adds to it. 

so, whaddaya think?

after a harrowing afternoon/night I have (nearly) completed my dress. 
Oh. My. Goodness.

I will never again underestimate the power of those little notches on the pattern.  I also understand why most people opt to buy their dresses.

But it came out looking pretty at the end, here's a crappy picture:



All I have left to do is add some hook+eyes and fiddle around with the bits under my arms so they don't stick out and look weird. 
and I have to figure out a creative bra soloution, because no bra=bad, at least with this dress.  Perhapes tape will work...must experiment with that.
Horray for sewing marathons!

8  Re: Show off your hair! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by imnotasuperhero on: April 25, 2005 02:17:41 PM
my favourite hairstyle ever was my hot pink mohawk.



this was the height of it's glory(please excuse the kind of crappy picture), it wasn't a super-gelled 'hawk either, I liked the fuzzyness

Then I cut it off and bleached it



and then I dyed it black



and then over the summer there was alot of bleaching and dying and I finnally decided to do something totally wild (for me) and dye it a natural brown.

I've been letting it grow too, but now I really want to cut it.  The only problem is that my long hair is kind of fun to play with, and The Boy says he likes the long hair(he's a little on the vanilla side of things, even if he is a musician....oh well).  All these pictures are making me itchy to play with my hair!

9  sundress with tutorial! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by imnotasuperhero on: March 27, 2005 11:55:04 AM
Last night I got the urge to make somthing, so I whipped up this adorable sundress out of strawberry shortcake fabric.



The pattern is very simple, just get measurements for your bust, your waist and how long you want it to be then take a piece of newspaper and make this shape with your measurments



cut three peices like that, then cut a fourth piece an inch to an inch and a half wider(this is the back), don't forget to add seam allowences(its better that it be too big than too small)  Sew the four panels together, and add a zipper on the back.  Then either get some help or use a dress form to tailor the top so it fits you better. Hem it up, add some straps and voila, pretty sundress! horray!
