31  Stupid creatures in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by papilionette on: July 26, 2009 01:34:03 PM
After seeing a Threadbanger episode with John Murphy from Stupid Creatures, where he showed how to make your own stupid creature, I started right away.

The Stupid creature was a big hit with my brother and sister that I had to make another one to keep my sister satisfied and still I haven't got one myself.

Here they are together.

This is the first one I made. It is now adopted by my younger brother.

And this is the second one I made and is adopted by my younger sister.

32  A Nightmare before Christmas Skirt. (picture heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by papilionette on: June 27, 2009 07:58:01 AM
Well, I wanted a tNbC skirt, but seeing as I can't get any fabric here in the netherlands, I decided to make my own. So I've watched tNbC another thousand times, so I could draw from pictures some of my favorite characters, which happens to be almost everybody. Searched the internet for a gazillion pictures and made my boyfriend go to the craftshop everyday to get me new fabric markers.  It took me 3 nights to color it all. And even though it shows on the pictures that it's colored with a pen IRL it looks remotely all one color and not really stripey.

And this is the result.


And every other angle:

Because I don't like the elastic waistband a lot, I'm still planning on making some sort of waistband to cover it up. but it is wearable now. Tongue`

33  Zombie apron in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by papilionette on: June 21, 2009 02:50:41 PM
Because of discovering and browsing Craftster, I'm in a crafty mood lately and decided because I had a lot of birthdays coming up this summer, that I would make everybody something nice. I already made an American Mcgee's Alice bag for a friend of mine and the next birthday coming up was that of my little brother.

of course I had to make something special. Last year he moved into his own apartment, but is still missing some essentials for in his kitchen, like scales and matching plates and stuff like that. So I bought the scales for him and went for an apron to spice the present a little up.

I didn't want to make a simple apron because personally I think that would've been boring and after shopping with him and my dad I noticed he liked a zombie shirt very much. Alas it was too expensive, so I made him a Zombie apron, which he hopefully would like as well. I used the same colors as the shirt and gave it a little twist.

This is the apron:

I first drew a basic shape of the head and and hand with pencil on white fabric already cut out in an apron shape. And then started splashing with some fabric paint in different colours of green and red and many other colors.

After it dried I gave the head more detail and color with fabric crayons and ironed it so it would stay on, whenever he throws it in the washingmachine. And then finished sewing the apron.

34  American Mcgee's Alice bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by papilionette on: June 11, 2009 10:43:50 AM
A friend of mine is soon celebrating her birthday and since she likes American Mcgee's Alice a lot I decided to make a bag for her with Alice and the Cheshire cat from that game. I searched google for a picture of the game, so I could go from there.

This is the endresult and I hope she will like it as much as I do.

35  A Gothic lolita inspired handbag. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by papilionette on: June 05, 2009 07:11:03 AM
This is the first time I'm posting a project here and I'm a little nervous as well.

The first time I heard and saw Gothic Lolita I fell in love, but since I don't think it would look very good on me, I decided to dress my little sister up as a dolly. But before I started with the clothes I decided to make a little bag first. Just inspired by the look. It didn't come out completely the way I wanted, because the lace is a little to long for my preference. It tends to look a little bulky instead of all cute and stuff, but still I wanted to share it.

Here are the pictures.

And a closeup of the bunny.

I hope you like it, my sister did.
