61  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Draw A GPS (for fun) on: January 03, 2011 06:03:37 PM
Fake GPS? Is she out of her mind? You must be wondering why the hell am I wasting my time and drawing a GPS. Of course, we all know that a fake GPS doesnt do anything, the reason for this project is just a temporary solution to replace a missing gift. Next time you are out of gift ideas, you can try to do this too.

My intention for this project is pretty simple, I would like to get my husband a GPS for his birthday. Since I am not very interested in doing the research and comparing hundreds of similar but yet different GPS because I am lazy. I came up with this idea of drawing a cardboard GPS.

To make it look like i wasnt just completely running out of time for the research and buy the gift, I gather some simple drawing marker, cardboard, and correction pen and started doing this copycat GPS gift. I even place it into a box and wrap it up so it is totally ready for my husband to unwrap the gift like normal. Nobody suspects this is a fake gift of course!

The whole project is pretty simple, do some research and get a GPS image that you want form the magazines or Sunday ads. Cut out a piece of cardboard and try to use marker to copy the image onto the cardboard. Start from the outside with the edges, then the screen, the letters and then the road picture. I listed the coupon detail in the back so it is pretty obvious that this is a certificate of future goods (with limited value).

This project is definitely entry level and requires only basic household tools. It took me less than 15 minutes to finish and wrapping takes a minute or two. So, for a last minutes gift, this is definitely a great idea.

Material Needed:

A black permanent marker, a fine line black felt tip pen, some cardboard from moving box, a correcting white-out pen, a gift box and some wrapping paper.

63  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Lolita Apron Tutorial on: January 02, 2011 08:55:25 AM
I got the idea to make this apron from the Lolita clothes website. I always fancy to buy a piece of Lolita style dress or clothing. But of course they are not cheap and also i dont think i have to courage to wear them out. So in stead, i design some simpler version but Lolita inspired fashion outfit so i can wear them around the house or even wear them out if i want to.

Anyway, I hope you like my blog and my creations~

Step  1: Make The Top Portion

Draw a big heart on newspaper and use that as pattern to cut out the fabric. Finish the edges by fold toward the back and sew along the sides. Make ruffle with thin long pieces of extra fabric. While sewing a line in the middle using the sewing machine, gather the fabric and fold them as you sew.  Then Sew them along the 1 inch line of the heart shape apron top.

Step 2: Make The Straps And Waist Band

Cut out 1 long piece of rectangle fabric for waist band. the length has to be enough to go around your waist at least 3 to 4 times to tie a bow. Fold the edge and sew it to prevent framing. Then make two shorter straps for shoulder straps length all the way across the back of your waist. Add extra fabric along the outer side of the shoulder straps for a fancier look.

Step 3: Cut Out And Make The Lower Portion

Roughly measure your waist size for the lower part of the apron. I thought it would be fun to make the lower edge in cloud shapes. As usual, finish the edges and add extra ruffle along the 1 inch line. That matches the top design and give the whole look a more cohesive feeling.

Step 4: Connect Three Parts Together

Most important part of the DIY is the connecting part. Bring out your threads and needle or a basic sewing machines. Simply sew along the previous sewing line to hide the new seems. Sew the bottom part of the heart to the middle of the waist band and also place the lower portion in the middle of the waist band then sew them together. Also add finishing touches like ribbon bows, ruffles, or rhinestones where ever you desire. Its your design, have fun!
