Challenge: Dentention in the Dungeons- April
House: Slytherin
Project Name: A little too sexy halter
Project Page Link:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422819.0
Brief Description: I have made clothes for myself before but never using my own pattern. So I drew up a pattern for a halter top. It came out a little more revealing that I wanted but I will still wear it (only when going out with the boyfriend because he is a creep deterrent).

143  Halter top from my own pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by FreakieGeekie on: April 18, 2013 09:49:57 PM
I made a halter top with my own pattern and it came out a little too revealing for my taste, hence the t-shirt underneath. I have since tweaked the pattern and will be making another, less revealing top with it later. I also need to widen and lengthen the straps a bit.

Like a lot of guys, my boyfriend will use his wallet 'til it's in pieces so I made one for him.

Here's the project page with more info on the wallet.

Class: Potions
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Boyfriend's new wallet
Project Page Link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=422781.0
Brief Description: When I inhale the vapors from Amortentia, I smell Altoids, leather, and chocolate. A strange combination indeed but these scents remind me of my boyfriend who likes those three things. Like many men, my boyfriend will use his wallet until it's in pieces. So I decided to make him a new one. Sadly, my sewing machine didn't take kindly to the scrap of genuine leather I had, even though I adjust everything and had a heavy-duty needle. Not one to give up easily, I dug out some synthetic leather and fused it to some heavy duck cloth to make it sturdier like real leather.

146  Synthetic leather wallet (my first wallet) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by FreakieGeekie on: April 17, 2013 07:11:33 PM
Like a lot of guys, my boyfriend is in the habit of using his wallet 'til it comes apart. So I decided I would make him one.

I fused the synthetic leather to some heavy duck cloth to make it more durable. The trim is extra wide double fold bias tape. The ID pocket is made from a piece of a plastic bag (the one my comforter came in). It's simple but my BF doesn't like fancy wallets so it will suit him just fine.
I'm debating adding Velcro for closures.

ETA: I made my own pattern using one of my dad's old wallets as a guide.

148  Monster High doll top, skirt, and dress in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: April 15, 2013 12:13:57 AM
I adore the Monster High dolls so when I saw the Monster High Swap Round 2 I just HAD to sign up.
I didn't realize what I was getting myself into! These dolls are a challenge to sew for because of their arched backs.
After some struggling to make patterns, I came up with these two outfits.

I made strapless top using polka-dot calico cotton then I made the pleated mini skirt, which was repurposed from a Halloween costume accessory.

Every ghoul should have a little black dress so I made this dress from a light cotton fabric.

149  Moogle hoopla, embroidered pouch, and Monster High hoopla in Needlework: Completed Projects by FreakieGeekie on: April 14, 2013 11:55:59 PM
First up is the Moogle hoopla I embroidered for smileyyogini, who was my partner in the Gaming Swap. Its body, inner ear, and wings are made of felt and its nose and red ball are made of velveteen. The outline and detailing was done with black DMC embroidery floss on an alova suede background.

Next is the awesome pouch I sewed and embroidered for smileyyogini. I was inspired by a t-shirt she had in her Pinterest. The pouch is made of black twill, lined with purple felt, and the embroidery was done using DMC light effects neon green. You can't tell from the photo but the green gets MUCH brighter under flourescent lighting.

And last, but certainly not least, the Monster High logo. The skull is made of black alova suede and white felt and the bow is made of pink fleece. The eyes and outline were done with black DMC floss and it is on a quilting cotton background.

I'm finally back! I missed this place so much!
I'm a bad student: I finally finished Snape's clothes but I haven't taken pictures yet because his clothes STILL aren't fitting him right. I'm going to have to take them up AGAIN. I've never had as much trouble from any project as I've had from him. Makes me want to kick him across the room.

Class: SoaR
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Joyful Moogle
Brief Description: When I saw that my swap partner for the Gaming Swap, smileyyogini, liked Moogles, I couldn't resist embroidering one for her. They're so cute and look so cuddly! I don't know about you, but just looking at cute and cuddly things makes me happy! To tie into the joy, I gave the Moogle a sweet smile.

Class: Herbology
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Monster High doll clothes
Brief Description: If you've ever seen a MH doll up close you know that they have very tiny bodies with a back that has a pronounced arch. That being said, these dolls are VERY difficult to make clothes for (at least for me). It takes great patience and care to make their clothes because just the smallest slip-up means the clothing will NOT fit them; I learned this the hard way. But in the end I got a dress, top, and for my MH Swap partner, amigurl55. The skirt was actually repurposed from a Halloween costume accessory.

I counted these together because they took about thirty minutes together.

Class: Flying
House: Slytherin
Project Name: Kindle pouch (or for other uses)
Brief Description: Smileyyogini told me she had a Kindle and that she wouldn't mind a pouch so I made a this for her Kindle. BUT it also holds lots of things: I stuffed it full of candy extras for her and her family (that her husband and son devoured).
