I have a ton of Star Wars fabrics in my stash and I finally got around to using one of them! All the white parts glow in the dark Grin I didn't use a pattern, I just kind of winged it.

4  Harley Quinn Cosplay in Costumes: Completed Projects by LittleLaura on: May 18, 2016 04:07:22 PM
Motor City Comic Con was this past weekend and I went dressed as Harley Quinn. The skirt is a self drafted pattern and the top is a VERY heavily modified version of a vintage crop top pattern. The arm bands are made from a belt that I cut up and sewed together. I probably spent about 30 hours working on this since I went through many different attempts at the top before I got it right (this may be the most unforgiving fabric I've ever used).

Project Name: Star Wars Bomber Jacket
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=445266.0
Brief Description: I found some amazing Star Wars velcro patches (that also glow in the dark!) and had no idea what to do with them until I found this leather jacket at a thrift store. I hand stitched the patches which ended up being a lot more difficult than I originally thought since I've never tried to hand sew velcro onto leather. My tiny little hands ended up taking three days to sew six patches Cheesy I'm happy with how it turned out and now I'm walking around showing off my nerdiness with pride Cool

6  Star Wars Bomber Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by LittleLaura on: March 16, 2016 04:52:05 PM
I'm a huge Star Wars geek so when I found these awesome velcro patches online I knew I had to make something with them. They glow in the dark too! Anyway, I go thrifting a lot and when I came across this leather jacket, I knew what had to be done Grin I bought the patches and hand stitched them to the sleeves.

Holy crap...what I thought was going to be a quick project ended up taking me three days. Sewing through velcro as well as leather is really hard on the hands Angry I'm extremely happy with how it turned out but no more hand stitching for me for a while unless it's something super easy Cool

Here's a picture of the jacket before I washed and sewed the patches to it

Project Name: Spring Pleated Skirt
Project Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=445212.new#new
Brief Description: A pleated skirt I made for myself with a lovely flowery spring fabric. This ended up taking a bit more time than I originally intended due to some overzealous fabric cutting  Embarrassed I'm happy with how it turned out though!

8  Spring Pleated Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: March 10, 2016 03:01:25 PM
I bought this fabric over the winter and I've been saving it for a cute little spring skirt. I didn't really have a pattern in mind when I bought it so I spent a lot of time trying out different shapes and sizes of pleats until I found something I liked. Somehow I miscalculated some of my measurements though and I ended up cutting off too much of what I thought was extra fabric! I thought it was ruined so I went back to the store to see if I could get another yard and start over but they were all out Cry Now that I knew this was all I had to work with I was determined to try to piece it back together somehow and salvage this skirt. I ended up tacking on some of the extra I cut off and hid the extra seam in one of the pleats. I felt like I had to have a Make it Work moment and I'm glad I did because I'm really happy with how it turned out. Grin Next time though, I'll listen to the old adage, "Measure twice, cut once"!

9  Gathering Leaves Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by LittleLaura on: August 12, 2015 04:27:42 PM
I crocheted this back in 2010 but I never posted it here. I still wear this shawl in the spring/fall and I've taken good care of it so it's still in decent shape. It took a few months from start to finish. The hardest part was the brown edging. I had to do each row individually until I was past the regular pattern in green. SO MANY ENDS TO WEAVE! In the end though I think it was worth all the extra effort since I'm happy with the result.

10  Simple Summer Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by LittleLaura on: July 05, 2015 09:40:05 AM
I had this pretty summery fabric so I made myself a little skirt. It was super simple to make, I didn't use a pattern or anything. I just cut the piece and attached the elastic. Nothing better than a project that comes together in an hour Cheesy
