1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help drafting pattern for fur capelet. on: October 07, 2012 01:18:44 PM
My goal is to make a white shaggy fur capelet with a hood. I prefer not to spend money on a pattern when it seems a simple enough project to do myself, though admittedly I'm not yet quite skilled enough to draft one without help.

Something tells me it's going to start out looking like a circle cape, but I am concerned about the shaggy fabric not draping well over my shoulders and just sticking out too far and looking silly.

What wisdom do you have for me?
2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Furry Short Cape With Hood on: July 22, 2012 07:23:06 PM
I'm getting started on my Halloween costume early this year! I'll be going as a Lost Boy, from Peter Pan. Not any particular version, just something I made up in my head.

I got a couple yards of faux fur from Joanne's, the white shag kind. I want to make a short cape, one that ends just above my elbows with a hood and some wolf ears. I'm still a novice seamstress and am nervous about trying anything without a pattern...

I found this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=387511.0
Featuring a furry hat. I'll probably reference that for the ears.

Any tips or suggestions for patterns I can use or what things I'll need to look out for when tackling this project?

One thing I'm wondering is, does it matter what kind of fabric I use for the lining? I didn't want to do anything too terribly warm since I live in Florida...

Thanks for the input! Smiley
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / Seamless Duct Tape Wallets - How is it done?? on: November 03, 2010 09:46:24 AM
In my recent Etsy travels, I have come across this seller of rather splendid duct tape wallets: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jDUCT?section_id=5076479

These are by far the best looking DT wallets I've ever seen, and partly because there is NO overlap whatsoever that I can see! How is this done? I would imagine that using very large sheets of duct tape would be the answer, but where on earth does one find something like that? Any ideas?

This year I was a cavewoman/jungle queen!

I made everything myself. Used this tutorial here for the corset bit: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323906.0

The necklace I made with black and ivory Sculpey.









Thanks for looking. =)
