11  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.

12  Glitter heels that won't lose glitter! in Shoes: Completed Projects by lidehtium on: April 04, 2013 03:49:37 AM

My heels were begging to be spiced up for a while now, and I finally decided what to do with them.
Two base coats of a frosty mint nail polish, and then 2 coats of a super glittery polish did the trick!

While the glitter was tacky I make sure all the pieces were laying flat with my finger, now it's super smooth and doesn't fall off like I imagine the mod podge/glitter would. (I also used a polish with hex glitter, which is super thin and isn't rough, that will also help it's staying power I do believe Smiley )

After just the first layers..

13  From start to finish, the story of a purse. PIC HEAVY in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: January 08, 2013 06:33:51 PM

I'd been using my last purse way beyond the point of acceptance. It was falling apart and ready to let one of the straps go. I saw a certain style of purse popping up every once and a while that I thought looked neat with a main pocket and 2 big side pockets. After scouring 'purse' in image searches, I found one to go by.

Then I sketched the pattern. (My bf said the drawing looked like a cat in a helmet, so I drew a face on it. Pay it no mind).

Made the actual pattern (out of wrapping paper)..

Then started putting everything together.

And finally, the final product!

I'm super pleased with how this came out! I'd love to hear some feedback on it. Thanks for looking!

14  My new years shirt AKA you should try built in sleeves! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: December 29, 2012 09:58:38 AM
So sleeves that are a part of the main pattern is the greatest discovery ever. That and double needles, which I used for the first time with these shirts. Total game changer. Everyone who sews knits should give one a try.

I also learned that sequins are a labour of love, having to take them all off the seam allowances left my apt looking like a disco ball.

More pictures/info on my blog if you're interested. I'd love opinions/critiques/etc!

A close up on the stitching.

Hey there, is it possible to get a diagram of where your sewing/cutting lines are or a zoomed out pic of the last cut? I think I can follow to there. Maybe I just have to have a go.

I have a dinner party to go to in 4 days, and I have some of that fabric in black, that would look nice over my maroon halter neck top that I have also made.
This would finish it off nicely, just what I need to wear at a dinner with my classmates from my fashion course.

Hey! I have one pic here http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-i6bEKG5i13k/Tv6GmSL-AsI/AAAAAAAABNo/99hYmOLf71Q/s640/DSCN7276.JPG Which shows the top sewing line, which is essentially the same thing on each edge. And then I have this doodle that I made in paint that may or may not help you Tongue. Hopefully it does! If you try it I'd love to see how it comes out.

16  Re: SECRET SANTA SWAP 2012 GALLERY!!!!! in The Swap Gallery by lidehtium on: December 08, 2012 04:59:31 AM
Awesome packages so far!!

I got a wonderful bunch of thing from Mariak (thank you soooo much!!!)

3 really great ornaments and some hot chocolate

A hat! This thing is so awesome.

A little slytherin colored pouch

And a whole bunch of zombie gear, like this mug

And this survival kit, which had magnets, keychains (the bullet had a message inside!), and these hilarious gift tags that I'll use next year, simply because I'm pretty much done wrapping everything for this year.

Thanks again! I feel really spoiled.

Since we're showing off our wonderful wrapped gifts, look at these! It sure looks like I was spoiled Smiley. Also, I love the wrapping paper (especially top left). Its gorgeous!

18  Recycled Sweater Coat: An intense experiment in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lidehtium on: November 21, 2012 07:26:49 PM
So.. I went to Value Village when they had their 50% off sale, and bought a ridiculous amount of brown sweaters. 2 days, a few spools of thread and 3 garbage bags of scraps later I have this.

I'm immensely proud of how it came out for me just winging pretty much the whole thing, and I understand now why people sell these for several hundred dollars. If it wasn't for the 50% off sale this would have cost me over $100 just for supplies! Not to mention the time dedicated to making it.

I don't quite know what I'll do with this. Part of me finds it really comfy and strange and snug, and the other part of me is like 'Is this even your style? Why are you wearing this?' I think I'm getting too used to the fancy dress code of one of my jobs.

Comments and critiques are more than welcome, and I have some extra info on my blog if you're interested. Smiley

(Edit: I showed it to my boss a picture and he loved it, so I can wear it to work! I dont know why I worried, he's a designer and its his boutique/fabric store so we all wear handmade stuff.. Im just crazy I guess Tongue)

19  Leaves in Resin pendants in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: November 05, 2012 06:05:23 PM
I've come to the conclusion that resin is my all time favourite medium. I saved up leaves for a few weeks and now have these lovelies to share!

These are going to help me when Im longing for autumn when its freezing out. Ugh.

C&C welcome Smiley

20  Touch screen compatible mittens in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: November 02, 2012 05:47:15 PM
I'm so excited about sharing these. I made a huge set of wool mittens, that you can use your phone with because of conductive threads woven in.

More info on my blog.
