I GOT THE BEST PACKAGE EVER!
Okay. I'm really excited to share this. It's amazing! It's giving me serious swap anxiety though, I hope that amazing_784 likes what I send off half as much..

To start, I am obsessed with knit things. I've always wanted a knit sweater, so I am just in awe that she was able to whip one up for me for this swap. The colour is gorgeous, it fits perfectly, and it got the stamp of approval from my bf's nanny, who is big into knitting as well.



And a close up of the neckline.



I also got these fabric hair rollers as an extra, which is great cause I made one once, and they've been on my to do list for months.



Thanks so much, it's a fantastic swap package!

3  Re: Halloween in June Sign Up CLOSED. Send Out July 8 in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by lidehtium on: June 13, 2014 02:09:42 PM
My favourite costume was a toothbrush. I cut foamy strips out of green and white packing stuff and glued it to a hoodie. I went to a house of postmen and they assumed I was a mailbox and gave me extra candy.
Most years I just go as some form of a zombie/skeleton/demon thing. Warning on the creepy picture attached!



In swap news I started one thing, thought of something better, and got part of the new thing finished. Now I need to work on the other parts. And maybe finish the first idea, cause what the heck.

4  I'm on a shoe painting fix. Galaxy heels! in Shoes: Completed Projects by lidehtium on: June 03, 2014 01:47:57 PM
I'm having so much fun painting shoes lately. I had a pair of heels I painted years ago that I finally sanded the old image off of, and wanted to put a new image on. The mister had suggested I try my hand at galaxy heels, so off I went.
Does anyone else find it harder to do abstract stuff? It's definitely more challenging for me.







C&C would be greatly appreciated on this. I was nervous that these would look too little like space and too much like random blobs of colour, but they're growing on my quite steadily. Smiley

5  Cowl Neck Dress/First experiment in drafting in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: May 10, 2014 05:29:01 PM
I picked up a book on drafting a while back and and finally got to try it out with an old design I had sketched up last year. I did a muslin first to test it and made my adjustments, and ended up with this. It's exactly how I wanted it to be and I'm so excited about it!

There's no zippers, it pulls over and cinches around the waist with the ties. Such comfort!











Thanks for looking Smiley

6  Painted Octopus Shoes & Making of video in Shoes: Completed Projects by lidehtium on: May 05, 2014 01:33:17 PM
Hi guys! I finished painting some heels a few days ago, wanted to share it with you. I'm more or less pleased with them, never took myself for much of a painter if you don't include nail polish, but they look alright. Smiley









I also started a youtube channel in the hopes of documenting some of the things I make, so I have a little video here showing a bit of me making them. It's not indended to be a walk through tutorial, but it might be helpful or interesting to check out none the less. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOpSEzmIoP-PIoP6LbuWCLw

7  Nautical Striped Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: April 26, 2014 01:02:33 PM
You know how you plan on making all sorts of things, and then you work on something else? Well instead of making cold weather dresses I made this little striped t-shirt dress. I've got some anchor tights that are begging to be worn with it, as soon as the temperature goes above 5. It is darn cold in my corner of the earth!



I don't have a picture of it on, so the mannequin will have to do


And the back goes across straight, as opposed to the front that has a curve on the red


Can you believe I ironed this thing? Sheesh.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

8  First silversmith project! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: February 04, 2014 08:32:48 PM
I've been saying for years I wanted to get into working with metal but was fairly intimidated by it all (and the price tag attached to yet another hobby..). I got to do a silversmith class last month and it's definitely the beginning of a new obsession. Anyone curious about it if you have a workshop in your area I would definitely suggest it! I wanted to learn as much as possible so I sketched an idea that would use the most tools. The ball hammer, the dapping block, and soldering.

9  My 'Sundae' Dress, Self made pattern a success! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: August 08, 2013 10:36:11 AM
I'm trying to get better at sewing, so I've made a point to start properly drafting patterns, adding the seam allowance, doing linings, etc. This dress pattern I made and am in love with (besides the fact that it makes me look a little flat chested, but whatever), and have been pumping out dresses since I've been on vacation with my sewing machines. I'm thinking of dubbing it the Sundae dress, since I want to name my patterns for fun, and my SO suggested dessert names. Tongue

Anyway, enough rambling, dresses!


Thanks to my SO for getting up at the crack of dawn to take pictures for me. (His photoblog is 3ark.ca Smiley)


Awkward bathroom selfie..


And I don't have a picture of this one yet, but it's more of the same, hah.

Now I need to learn how to grade patterns, any advice for this? I've mostly seen people doing the cut and spread method on blogs, but is that the best way to go about it?

10  Prosthetic eyes turned pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lidehtium on: July 09, 2013 02:21:14 PM
These are probably (definitely) the weirdest things I've ever made. I bought some prosthetic eyes off ebay, and made some necklaces out of them. I don't have pictures of the chain details (the blue one was on a tiered chain, simplebut nice) but I had to share the main pendant with you.
