1  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?
2  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).
