21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Reversible Batgirl Skirt/Cape on: February 23, 2012 11:20:43 PM
Seen here (she changes the skirt into the cape at 4:30): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDnlrfq5tQE

I'd love to make this sometime, though probably not for a while because I'm just learning to sew. But I've been wondering how a reversible skirt/cape like that could be made, particularly how it could close as a skirt? I feel like a zipper or velcro would show in the cape, and anything else would take longer to take off. Any ideas?

This is awesome! I tend to carry teabags loose in my backpack and they end up getting messed up, once to the point where the package and teabag broke open and the tea leaves got all over my stuff. I definitely want to make one of these.

The dragon eyes are gorgeous! It seriously looks like you have eyes on your earlobes- but in a good way!

Ooh, this is awesome! I love those books too. Someone should make a parasol of them... either one with special things like in the books, or maybe some kind of collage...
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Fairytale Necklace- Snow White on: February 10, 2012 06:44:29 PM


Last semester I had a class on storytelling, and we had a project on visual storytelling that was pretty much to make a visual piece that in some way tells a story. I'd been thinking about making a necklace of a fairytale for a while, so that's what I did. I already had the apple, so I decided to do Snow White. I chose what I considered five major elements of the story and selected a bead to represent each--a drop of blood (for when Snow White's mother pricks her finger and the blood falls on the snow, inspiring the name), a mirror (I wanted to use a sequin mirror but didn't have one on hand, so I used tin foil in a frame instead), the apple, a clear, kind of almost coffin-shaped bead for the glass coffin, and a heart to represent true love with the prince (I actually had wanted to use the heart for the woodsman being supposed to cut out her heart, but the plot of the necklace wouldn't have properly balanced).

I tried making chocolate bowls using balloons once and it didn't go so well, I believe the problem was the chocolate stuck to the balloons. Do you coat them with something, or use a certain kind of chocolate?

These are awesome! There's this comic strip dress I've been drooling over; I think I have to get it and make a pair of these to wear with it.
