11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Comic Book Prom Dress on: July 04, 2012 01:02:37 PM
I wanted to be different for my prom. So I was. It's a two part dress based off the pattern 6457 from New Look which I purchased in America on a school trip. By two part I mean there's a fabric dress and the comic book skirt is separate and went on over the head.

This project took about a week of on and off sewing, one hand sewing needle that broke, 4 comic books, sticky back plastic and a hole in my thumb. Because I don't like to use thimbles. It was a labour of love between my mum and it didn't even last 4 hours. Machine stitching does not like to stay in with this, let me tell you. Anyway, photos! (More photos may come later from the professional photographer they had)

This was before any damage and alterations I made to the skirt to make it more flattering.



12  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Comic Book Prom Shoes on: July 04, 2012 12:29:15 PM
I felt I needed to leave school being extraordinary out of everyone else and giving everyone something to remember about me. To do this, I used prom in order to create something I've wanted for a long time - comic book shoes. This relates to my outfit which used comics to accessorise it and 'add interest' as my textiles teacher would say.

I originally wanted a covered toe shoe with no awkward bits to cut around. So my mum bought me peep toe shoes with windows that were awkward to cut around. They also ended up being too big for my feet but we solved that with gel cushions and heel cushions.

14  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / 'Some people say' Ironman embroidery on: June 07, 2012 04:02:52 AM
This is half of a present for a friend of mine who has a birthday in a month (I actually finished a present for someone BEFORE their birthday!).

This friend is severely addicted to the Avengers so I asked her who her favourite character was which is a tie between Loki and Ironman (Loki is the second part of the present). I got the idea of using the quote 'Some people say the best weapon is one you never have to fire. I prefer the weapon you only have to fire once. That's how dad did it, that's how America does it' as it ties in all of my own personal thoughts about Tony Stark.

The only stitches used for this were satin stitch and back stitch. The satin stitch is used in many different angles which help to create depth (via the light) to the embroidery without needing to change colour.

Various in progress pictures:





I'm not completely happy with how the hoopless binding (tutorial I used) ended up looking but I'm sure my friend will appreciate it anyway.

This looks amazing! I like how you gave us all those close up pictures so we could see your talent closer up.

I really like this. It might look better, like you said, if you added maybe another column of black on either side to it but other than that I think it looks fantastic.

I used this pattern and just worked in the back and front of the stitch alternatively.
18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Mint Grace Baby Blanket on: December 29, 2011 12:02:15 PM
This is for the newest addition to my extended family and was started before we knew the gender so I went with the colours of white and a mint green. At the time I was not very comfortable with any other stitch except single crochet so it's a very simple looking blanket.


And the different textures
