1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: First try at wearables and an experiment in tea dying on: July 22, 2010 06:28:45 AM
It was from Simplicity 3677 http://www.simplicity.com/p-1970-costumes.aspx, female pirate costumes.  It is view B(the one without the ruffly collar I had been searching for it for a long time because I was (and still am) planning on making a pirate coat and all the patterns I found were for males or children. The only adjustment I made was I made it 5 inches longer so it would stay tucked into the skirt all day.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Camera Bag Wristlet on: July 15, 2010 12:58:41 PM
I recently broke down and bought a really nice (and expensive  Undecided) digital camera. I wanted a really cute case for it, but all the ones that I found are either really ugly and functional or semi cute and not-functional. I decided to take a whirl at trying Keykalou's Camera Wristlet pattern and it came out FANTASTIC! I was worried that it was going to be too big seeing that my camera is so small, but in the end it fits in there perfectly. There is batting and heavy interfacing in there to make it super padded and secure. Please excuse the crude looking photos. I had to take them with the camera on my phone to show just how snug and cozy my digital camera is in it.

Showing how my camera fits in there perfectly:

And the pocket on the back. I plan on putting an extra memory card and microfiber cleaning cloth in there. My charger for the camera battery will not fit in there. I thought it was funny that the charger is larger than the camera iteself!

Thanks for checking it out!

I love it! I have been looking for something like this for my backpack. Did you use a pattern for this? If so, which one?

For the corset I used Simplicity #8855. The pattern calls for boning, but I decided not to put it in (I like breathing too much). I knew I went overboard last year when I attached these cool old keys that I found to my belt and I walked a few steps and realized I made waaaaayyyy too much noise Cheesy This year I am only having a belt pouch I made, my dagger, and my tankard. I plan on buying some skirt hikes this year too.

So the local Ren faire is this weekend and what I learned from last year is simple is more and the only heat wave of the year is the weekend of the the faire. I borrowed someone else's outfit last year and thought I would never utter the phrase: "We can't stay for the joust because it is too hot and I am going to pass out because my corset is too tight" After much researching and mashing patterns together I put together this for around $30.

The underskirt used to be a curtain "swag" I picked up from the goodwill and the corset was an upholstry remnant I got for free when I went to get my shears sharpened. The blue over skirt was $1.97/yd fabric from Wal-Mart (the grommets and the cording for the corset lacing was from there too). The shirt was also bargain Wal-Mart fabric, but they did not have the specific old color I was looking for, so I bought white and dyed it with tea when I got home:

The scottish tartan sash and pin are family crests my grandmother got for me when she visited Scotland.
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / From Ordinary to EXTRAORDINARY! on: July 10, 2010 07:14:00 PM
My in-laws just got back from vacation and happened to bring me a brand new ultra swank new digital camera! I found this to be the perfect opportunity to try out something I have been wanting to do for some time now. I took the blah camera wrist strap that came with the camera and added a robot cover. It makes the swank new camera even swankier. Since the original strap had some elasticity to it the cover tends to bunch a little, but no matter it looks cool!

And my old camera graciously modeling the strap (now I have to figure out how to get rid of it, lol).

Thanks for looking  Kiss

She has the pattern for sale in her Etsy store. I started it this afternoon. The instructions are really clear and there are diagrams to guide you through the tough parts.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Some new things for school on: June 02, 2010 10:12:47 PM
I am going back to school in the fall and needed a new dayplanner. Of course the ones that have everything I need are boring looking, so I decided to make a cover for it out of some Hawaiian fabric I saw. It also gave me the opportunity to use some of this awful orange thread I had for some reason. Since I customized the cover, it was a lesson in measuring, re-measuring and seam ripping. Overall it came out good I think. It even has a flap that closes with a magnetic so slips of paper don't fall out.
The outside:

The inside. I took one of the sides out to show the neat ocean fabric on the inside (and to show how boring and unimaginative the planner cover was).

I also made a zipper pouch for my backpack to carry small things in so I can grab it and run:

And the zipper pull I made (old school  Wink)

Thanks for looking  Kiss
