21  Heart button jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by hanshotfirst on: November 15, 2009 08:27:41 PM

Finished this tonight. I was convinced it was going to end up looking like a bathrobe yesterday and almost gave up, but I decided to stick with it! Boy, am I glad I did. I can't wait until it gets cold so I can show this bad boy off!



Can't get enough of those heart buttons!

The jacket is a slightly modified McCall's pattern (M5714). I pieced together parts from all the different styles, extended the front bodice pieces so they would over lap enough for two rows of buttons, and added the little do-hickey on the back. I made view C a couple days ago, but, although wearable, the arms are a little too tight and the bottom doesn't close like I had hoped.

I'm much happier with the new one   Cheesy
I just started sewing and had the rather fustrating experience of wasting 3 hours and 2 yards of absolutely adorable fabric on a jumper that fits so horribly, so I'm just beyond happy that I can actually button this thing up!

Why?
Why not.

Also, I'm thinking about ripping out the orange rays and using metallic gold floss instead. y/n?

23  These are not the tea towels you are looking for. in Needlework: Completed Projects by hanshotfirst on: October 10, 2009 09:47:08 PM
Woohoo! I can finally post pictures!

I made this a while ago for a friend of mine. I had never heard about crayon tinting, so I tried to use markers for this. Let me just say I am SO happy to discover an easier method, because I think I used an entire bottle of Shout to try to combat the bleeding. It drove me absolutely INSANE while I was making it,  but I'm pretty happy with the end result. Let me know what you think.

I also made him a Boba Fett one, too, but I didn't get a good picture of it before I mailed it out. He said he'd scan it in for me sometime, but who knows when that will be!

Also, a couple tea towels, my first projects.

24  Sorry to all the chemists out there in Needlework: Completed Projects by hanshotfirst on: October 08, 2009 02:21:36 AM
Chemistry has become the bane of my existence this semester. Instead of actually practicing good time management and doing my chem homework.. I decided to do this!

It looks like I stitched this while drunk, but I swear I've only had Red Bull to drink, which probably isn't much better.
Anyway, I figured someone out there might be in the same boat and appreciate this.

*We just did this experiment set up for our last lab and I wanted to smash one of my lab partner's face into the equipment because he was driving me absolutely insane. I feel considerably better about the experience after crafting this.  Grin
