21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Steampunk Time Traveler Costume on: June 28, 2013 12:09:45 AM
Right now it's only a concept but I'll get there before October!
I know there's an example on the envelope, but I wanted to see it in my choice of colors. I thought  the colors/patterns might look good together, but I wanted opinions so I needed a visual aid. The general consensus is that it will rock. B)
The skirt will be black/white striped with the contrasting part of the skirt's underside done in white. The grey of the shirt and sleeves will actually be black. I just made them grey so they wouldn't blend with the body of the jacket. You can't tell from this because the scanner ate the colors, but there are swirling silver and gold patterns on the jacket. The actual fabric I'm wanting to use has gold Asian dragons and silver tree branches (I'm thinking they're cherry tree branches).
22  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Cute little chibi on: June 23, 2013 11:45:46 PM
Rabbit is one of the main characters in an ongoing comic series over on deviantart by the amazing and talented LJ Phillips. Rabbit is a member of the Supernatural race Smokes. These beings are a type of vampire who drink the breath of the dying.
He is handsome, cocky, a bit of a party animal and a deadly soldier. But he's also very loyal to his friends.
I couldn't help liking him right away and had to draw fanart of him.

This is Rabbit:

I drew him with a General's drafting pencil then colored him in using Prismacolors.
Those marks across his face are not smudges but scars.
Yes, his eyes are pink but he's an albino so that is to be expected.

ETA: The comics have a few parts that one might consider NSFW. The companion comic "Under My Skin" has mature content and you have to be an of age member of deviantart to view it.
23  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / I thought it was funny. Apparently not... on: May 26, 2013 09:28:08 AM
So I stenciled this shirt because I thought it would be funny to have a "sugar tits" shirt.
My mom said it looks stupid. My sister laughed but her sense of humor is similar to mine so it doesn't count.
In hindsight, it probably would have been better if I had white fabric paint so that I could put it on a colored t-shirt but I worked with what I had. But this is a pajama shirt so that doesn't matter Wink

I strategically positioned the "sugar cubes" so that when I put on the shirt, they would line up with my bust. Please excuse the bad photo: I was using my mom's old camera which no longer takes decent photos. My camera takes good pics but doesn't have a self-timer, neither does my mom's new camera. Go figure.

24  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Falling Skies logo shirt on: May 12, 2013 02:00:11 PM
My boyfriend loves the show Falling Skies so I stenciled the logo on a shirt for him. There's a smudge/splatter on it but I can live with it.

No action shot because he's on an offshore rig right now. He might not let me get an action shot, either because he doesn't like his picture taken.
25  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 86 ENTRIES / Wark-wark! Chocobo embroidery! on: May 01, 2013 10:30:30 PM

When I got smileyyogini's swap info and saw that she likes Chocobos, I couldn't resist embroidering this for her. He's done completely in satin stitch except for his outline, which is split stitch.
I drew a Chocobo after looking at various references then traced it onto the fabric using my lightbox.
26  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Daryl Dixon fangirl shirt on: April 29, 2013 02:52:00 PM
My dad got me into The Walking Dead but I missed most of the episodes due to work. So I bought seasons one and two on dvd to catch up a bit.
Like a lot of fans, Daryl is my favorite character (one reason is Norman Reedus is one of my favorite actors). I wanted an official shirt but after buying some craft supplies, I didn't have $20 for an official shirt so I made my own with a freezer paper stencil.

Action shot:

Yes, I am a barefoot zombie hunter. And my eyes are closed because of the sunshine.

A funny little story to go with it:
My dad didn't like my shirt because he taught me to shoot and said "If there's a zombie apocalypse, don't hide behind ANYONE! Defend yourself like I taught you to!" Then I explained why I made it and he laughed. I'll post the why later because it will have its own thread.
27  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Halter top from my own pattern 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.
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Synthetic leather wallet (my first wallet) 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.
29  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster High doll top, skirt, and dress 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.
30  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Moogle hoopla, embroidered pouch, and Monster High hoopla 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.
