281  Luna Lovegood in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Mamaneedles on: September 04, 2009 08:46:09 PM

I'm actually really proud of it!
I'm reallllly bad at sewing... and I'm starting to see the *faint* light!

The cloak looks way better than I expected!

Now I wish I had done her some arms.... well it's not too late. But I got a Snape to do, too
The hair are KK from a scrap fake dread I had. The face was done with shapries. the pompoms are what was the most raddish looking thing I had on hand.
I might want to find a paler blue fabric for the scarf.
Any comment to improve it will be welcomed!
It's for a swappie so I want it to be as nice as it could be.

My bf wanted to keep it for himself, but I said I'd make him one for his xmas stockings Smiley He could not tell his fav charac, though!

thanks for looking!

282  Yet some other painted kid stuff! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Mamaneedles on: September 03, 2009 07:45:20 PM
You wll find a theme going on here:

Me and another girl on another forum HEF, organized a swap between us too.
Since we both have babies we decided that one item had to be for the baby. Of course, I did 2 more.
They are done with the same technique as my other posts. Those need to be iron (or machine dryed).
My swapie's fav HP character is Luna, and her fav quote is on the t-shirt.
I'm almost done with a Luna plush -only needs the butterbeer necklace- and I've done some nice slythie armwarmers (stolen from a vest) that need a dark mark added to them. I'll post them in the right catergorie when they are done!
Hopefully, My swapie does not hang out here so this post don't spoil her the surprise Smiley

I would have make my daughter model (as she LOVES to be photograph!) but she was on a really grumpy teething mode this week....

Wow! These all look fantastic! What kind of paint did you use? I've been looking for the right kind and the ones I have tried are just crappy.  These look gorgeous!

thanks! I use acrylic paint mixed with a textile medium. I posted a pic of the products in the thread I started in the Kid section....

There you go.

It's just like painting on anything else, really. Simple!

284  A few painted textil projects (img fat!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Mamaneedles on: August 29, 2009 07:06:48 PM

Here's a dress for my daughter. I might be obligated to post it in the children thread but I'm not sure if there a '1 thread a week' rule or something in here (thanks in advance to let me know!)

...And closup.

Now; when I was pregnant, I got free pregnant cloths. It's cool.. but boring. I altered some to fit my style a little more:

sorry for the hugeness of the post, but I did not want to spam everyone with 8 new thread or so....

Thanks for looking!

And this is a gift for a friend:

And those are request from my sis-in-law:

Thanks a lot for the sweet comments ! Cheesy
I will sure post some more when I get some times.

I think they both look great!!

Those shoes are amazing!  Would you mind giving any more details on how you did them?  They are great!
Here's what I used:

Jo Sonja's Textile Medium
Americana Black
0 size Paint brush
Black shoestrings with white skulls on it.

You mix the paint with the medium 1/1. Then you just let your mind flow for the partern. Like I said, it was 2 characters I draw often so I paint them straight away.
Since she has only wear them once (as I expected her to...) I didn't put a overall coat of medium, which I usualy do on normal clothing.
I might do it before selling them on my etsy. When I can get around fixing a price, and parting with them....
I had an extra black skulls shoelace (yes, I do sometimes, don't you?) and cut by half the job by changing them. Else I wound have polka-dotted the white ones.
(so now I have an extra pair for a future project! yay)

286  Onesie and shoes in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by Mamaneedles on: August 28, 2009 09:49:29 PM
Hi everybody!
I'm new in here and I realllllly reallly like it so far. So many things! so much inspirations!

First I need to say: I don't know how to sew. I'm really good at others things. But not sewing. and it makes me sad sometimes....
but this time I was pretty pleased!
Let me present you my daughter modeling Butterbeer the Crab onesie.
All I did was handsewing the 12 pieces of fabric to it the best I could.

now I won't close up more. You would see all the fault. (there's a lot of them!)
I love it! Too bad she ruined it with food... Sad

and another project, correct me if I place it in the wrong section. (there is so many! I get lost easily in here!)

These are shoes that I found at goodwill. size 2 (already outgrown...)
they were all pink with white shoelace... A tad boring.

But with little help from black acrylic paint and textile medium, they became really nice punky girly shoes Smiley

thanks for looking at my first show-off!
