11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / From start to finish, the story of a purse. PIC HEAVY 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!
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My new years shirt AKA you should try built in sleeves! 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.

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recycled Sweater Coat: An intense experiment 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)
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Leaves in Resin pendants 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

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.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions / Measurements for a commissioned corset, someone please help! on: September 18, 2012 06:11:19 PM
A woman is commissioning me to make her a corset, but I'm confused by the measurements she gave me. I'd like to see if anyone in this forum can help me out before I email her again.

Its for an underbust corset, so I asked for the ribcage measurement right under her bust (34) waist (37) and hips (41). She wants the waist of the corset to be reduced to a 34", which would leave the top half of the corset like a cylinder, which seems off to me. I would think that on any body type it would taper in a little bit at the waist at least. Does anyone have a similar body type to the measurements that might have any corset experience with?

I hope this post made sense, please, any help would be great before I start drafting a pattern here.
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fake abelone shell and other cameo pendants on: September 17, 2012 02:54:05 PM
Ive been holding onto these settings for ages and finally used them all in one swing.



This one is multiple kinds of duochrome paints, it ended up looking like abelone (to me). I love it! Heres the others.







18  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Braaaaiiiinnnnns! Hairclips :) on: September 05, 2012 06:02:30 PM
I thought I posted these already but it seems I forgot. I found an amazing brain mold that I used to make some hairclips in 'natural' and 'zombie' Cheesy.





I'm going to love these come halloween even more than I do now. C&C appreciated.
19  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sea shell pendants on: July 24, 2012 08:47:43 AM
I joined the pendant swap and made the first of these for one of my group members. Ever since I've been unable to stop making these pendants. Shells filled with glitter/stones, filled with resin. The bails are made of bent/wrapped wire. I'd love to hear what you think of these Smiley









20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Geometric necklace made from.. what?! on: June 26, 2012 07:03:48 AM
I have oodles of colored staples that I think are just so pretty, and I wanted to do something with them. This is what I came up with Smiley





Full tutorial here, but the gist of it is to glue everything together Smiley
