91  Totally nerdy Gir hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: May 31, 2010 03:15:41 PM
So someone asked me to make them a hoodie based off the character Gir from Invader Zim (a cartoon). This is what I came up with and I am SO PROUD OF IT! Everything is symetrical... I didnt have a single 'oh damn! I have to do that over cause I forgot to ____' moment.. so so happy with it.

The hood is lined so its extra thick because I didnt want the seams and all the stitches from where the decorative bits were attached to be seen when the hood was down.

Thanks for looking Smiley

93  First attempt at reconstructing shoes! in Shoes: Completed Projects by lidehtium on: May 14, 2010 10:17:19 PM
So I tried making a shoe a few weeks ago, I cut up an old pair of converse, gutted the insides, based a new pattern off the old one and sewed everything inside.

Overall, its not very comfortable, I left way too much material on the bottom so its lumpy, and also glued it too far down on the pattern so theres not as much fabric around the foot as I would like, but I think it was a great learning process and I know what to do better next time!!!

any comments/critiques welcome.
Also, anyone know how to avoid having such an obvious edge around the shoe from where the old material was? its really noticable (at least when I look at it Tongue)

97  Frilly lace skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: April 12, 2010 05:16:24 PM
I think after 22 years Im finally going through that frilly girly clothing phase that I didnt go through when I was young.. I ended up making a skirt (clue one of the phase) and covered it in umpteen layers of lace (clue #2)..oh well. I like it Smiley

unfortunately you cant see the layers too well..

this one you can see a bit better..

99  I made another hat!! Victorian styled in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: April 02, 2010 03:37:06 PM
I made another hat!

This time I went all out coating everything in lace.. I had so much with this, and Im really happy with how it turned out.

Id never wear it myself I dont think (not much of a fan of white Tongue) but.. it was mostly an experiment

The front is part of a corset I had, I had been saving pieces of it for a while since it was badly made (mass produced le chateau top..)

The back

I dont look happy, hahaha!

the side/top

Please let me know what you think Smiley

100  First attempt at Shrinky Dinks SO pleased!!! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lidehtium on: March 28, 2010 05:33:13 PM
So I finally went out and picked up some SD stuff today, was so excited to try it out.

(My store/shop/etsy/brand/whatever you call it logo)

First thing I did was get out an old stencil I used to put on a shirt of a nautical star and traced it in marker (and I made a mistake first line, oh well) so the coloring itself didnt turn out how I wanted it too, and my line was crooked but thats okay.

then I colored some scrap pieces from around the star (didnt want to waste them!)

(star with extra line and abstract thingys)
Then.. spent the next couple episodes of Dexter on my computer tracing out my logo from my etsy shop, and coloring that in. And Im SO HAPPY with how it turned out!! Now I get to wear a little tag of my own work everywhere I go, and when people ask.. BAM! Theres a business card. Hahaha.

(etsy logo again)
Anyway, anyone who ever wanted to try shrinky dinks but was worried to.. I highly suggest you do. Its amazing.
