1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Sergeant Pepper John Lennon (with a beard lol) on: November 03, 2015 09:34:12 AM
I made a Sergeant Pepper costume of John Lennon from the Beatles for my boyfriend for Halloween this year. It was VERY last minute. I made it and my sloth costume (you can see more of that here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=441373.0) within two days while I also went to work for 8 hours both days.

I made the shirt by finding a green men's button-up at a thrift store. I took off the pocket and all of the buttons. I cut the collar to be rounded and then I braided a bunch of orange yarn to make the things that go across his chest (what are those things? lol) and added buttons on the ends. I sewed trim to the bottom and made epaulets out of cardboard. I bought fabric that perfectly matched the shirt and sewed around the epaulets and added trim. Then I found a pair of my dad's pants and made a quick pattern from them. I added some elastic in the back (My boyfriend's skinnier than my dad + I wasn't going to make a fly) and there we have the full effect.

Here's me in it just for fun (wearing the backup glasses) as soon as I finished it:

Everyone said I looked like Elton John not John Lennon.  Cheesy It was too big for my obviously. Good thing it was for my Bo and not me.

Thanks for looking!
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / I'm a Sloth!!!!!!!! on: November 03, 2015 09:02:46 AM
Last minute about two days before a Halloween party I decided on creating my boyfriend and I costumes. I made him a Sergeant Pepper John Lennon and I made myself a Sloth Costume. My entry is my Sloth Costume but a lot of my pictures have Sergeant pepper in them. So please Regard my Sloth Costume for the Contest. Smiley

I'm trying to do my best sloth face.

I made a short vest with a hood out of fun fur and I even lined it. Then I made long gloves with only three fingers (since it's a three-toed sloth) with the fingers made of regular white cotton and the rest of the glove made of fun fur.

I found a grey long-sleeved shirt and leggings and then painted my face; Tadah!

Thanks for looking! I hope you like it!

I made this li'l guy for Sarasmile in the September dotee swap. Hand sewn (as always... at least usually)  and embroidered. These pictures did not come out good, I admit but I really love the dotee.

Right here you can kinda see it's more 3D aspects...

Thanks for looking!
4  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Vintage-y Halloween Fabric Bunting on: October 09, 2015 07:48:43 AM

This was my first time making bunting and I sewed it by hand. I didn't exactly know what I was doing but it still turned out alright, I think.

Thanks for looking!
5  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Smell My Feet Wreath and Wall Hanging on: October 01, 2015 01:21:35 PM

I made this wreath from dollar store materials as a very quick craft during a sort of craft/halloween party I had.

I also made this more expensive wall-hanging that they had instructions for on the Michael's website.

If you want to make the wall hanging here's the link:

6  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Jack-o-lantern Reversible Garland on: September 17, 2015 06:37:16 AM
I made this garland for the Vintage Halloween Swap. She said she received and since I'm on a posting spree today I thought I'd just post it. I was inspired by a felt sort of version on pinterest.

Each little jack face is cut out in the orange fabric then I placed a black felt piece between the two pieces of orange. Everything is hand sewn as is my habit lately.


The reversible part is that you can turn it around and it's just pumpkins for thanksgiving. Smiley

I might TRY and make one for myself but I am not very good at finishing anything I do for myself. lol

Thanks for looking!
7  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Li'l Prim Pumpkin Dude on: September 17, 2015 06:29:01 AM
I made this quick on a whim one day and gave it to my mother. I was inspired by a gingerbread man pattern (the body is sort of inspired by it) and it didn't take very long until I was finished and gave it to my mom.

I think he turned out really cute. Smiley

Thanks for looking!
8  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Lady of the Stuffed Shells on: September 17, 2015 06:25:37 AM
I can't stop laughing about this thing. I was a little afraid my partner in the food dotee swap would think it was creepy... I love it but yeah, my friend said it was "disturbing."

The face is polymer clay, painted, and covered in a light layer of liquid clay to seal the paint... unfortunately when I cooked it again it burnt the face a yellow color but my mom said it looked fine...  Roll Eyes The shell and sauce behind it is felt, the sauce on top is rick rack which I was really proud to use because I never know what to do with it. It came from my great-grandmother's stash. The herbs and Parmesan cheese are embroidered as well as the little lines on the shell on the side.

Thanks for looking!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Two Beaded Wrap Bracelets on: September 17, 2015 06:03:30 AM
I went on a bracelet making spree and have yet to post any of them so I'm doing it now.  Roll Eyes

First we have a wrap bracelet I found directions for off of a website:

here it is unwrapped:

I also made this one:

This one used up a lot of beads buuut I also bought a lot of beads for it.  Cheesy Both of these were sort of expensive but worth iiiit.

Thanks for looking!
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Macrame Bracelets Master Post on: September 17, 2015 05:57:06 AM
I haven't been putting out a lot of posts of everything I've made in the last couple months; mostly bracelets, so I decided to post them all in one go. I started off making macrame bracelets because a guest/friend at the hotel I work at asked if I knew how to make them. I don't have a picture of the one I made him and unfortunately I hadn't quite gotten the hang of it until the second one when I realized how to use different knots. Now I'm a master. XD I've waited MY WHOLE LIFE to be THIS GOOD at macrame!  Roll Eyes

This is the second one. Turned out good; for a coworker. Smiley I hadn't learned much about clasps for them yet so this one was just a tie-on

This one was for my boyfriend. He had worn it for a while then the weird knot-hole clasp I had on it kind of broke so I fixed it and gave him a pull-tight clasp.

This one for my brother. It was my best so far. I only took a picture after a little while of him wearing it. it has a pull-tight clasp.

I only got a process photo for this one. It's for a friend/coworker. He was very pushy on it. so I finished it and gave it away right away. XD

This one for a co-worker

This one for my uncle. I'm most proud of this one. it turned out perfeeeect.
Extra picture of it with the clasp:

And finally I made a bracelet for myself:
