3  Strawberry lolita skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sugarducky on: July 11, 2006 01:40:13 PM
I made a cute skirt yesterday. I think I'm going to try to sell it, but I like it a lot. Maybe I'll make another one for myself.

I got my bag a few days ago. I like it.

I got a cool messenger bag, a mousepad, this bag that is for electronic stuff that wipes off fingerprints, and a neat bracelet-making kit.
I thought my brother commandeered the electronics pouch, but I found it in my sister's room with a dinosaur in it, so I guess it's a dinosaur pouch.

This is what the bracelet kit made. It's really cool; the colors remind me of starburst candies.

The colors don't look quite that neon IRL, but it's sort of close.
I hope DayTripper likes what I sent him ^_^

Thank you for the links. They helped very much. I started on it today.
Just in case you wanted to know, here's what I did.
I bought some 20 gauge wire that's tin and copper, and 24 gauge, that I think it tin and copper, too. I made a sort of frame, and then filled it out with foil. That was a lot harder than I expected. Then I wrapped the foil guy with the thinner wire, to keep it together, and to help hold the clay on. I poked holes in a metal box, for a base and wrapped the wires around in them. Then I covered it with clay. It's just a bunch of colors of super-sculpy mixed together. (I knew that's not a strong clay, but I think it will be okay. I couldn't find a big pack of anything better, and I already had these.)
I don't think I got the right kind of wire, because the frame leaned back naturally. But maybe I just didn't secure it to the base well enough. I think it's a batter pose anyway. His hands will be in his pockets.
I've started shaping the face and shoes. I'm really happy with how this is going. I've never really made anything cool with clay, like I've made a couple cute animals, and some beads, but never a sculpture-type thing.
Please excuse my carpet, that is where I sew.

6  t-shirt peter pan collar question (now it makes sense and has pics) in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by sugarducky on: April 11, 2006 12:14:46 PM
Hi, I'm new around here, and sort of new to sewing. I'm trying to make a t-shirt reconstruction, kind of in a lolita style. I've got it all figured out, and most of it put together, except the sleeves and collar.

Here is a picture of the shirt I want to make. Except obviously not as crappy looking.


I have a problem with the collar. I want it to be a peter-pan type collar with lace around it. I have a pattern from a pattern drafting book. Pretty much what I do is put the lace between 2 layers of fabric, (one having interfacing on it), like this:

I am very careful to pin the lace in the right place, but every time instead of looking like this:

it ends up having the lace all caught up in the seam. Here is an x-ray image of what it looks like, well pretty much.

It does this no matter how careful I am with the pinning and sewing. Is there a trick to doing this? Would it look messy if I just sewed the lace onto the underside of the collar?

Um, the shirt will be white in reality.

I found these awesome stuffed animal patterns from the 70's at a thrift store. This is the only one I've made so far.

Here he is in his natural habitat, (the plush ocean).

(Or maybe he's just wrapped in a blanket ^_^)
I think it would look a lot better if I used a different fabric.

9  Goomba Pillow in Knitting: Completed Projects by sugarducky on: April 08, 2006 11:18:48 PM
I'm in the middle of making a set of mario bad-guy throw pillows. Here's the goomba dude. I have the koopa troopa knit, I just need to sew it up.

I did this with intarsia, the first time I ever tried it. I have some advise for people who have never tried it before: It's not hard, but pick a design that is either perfectly symmetrical, or not at all, so you don't get confused. And get some bobbins, little yarn balls just roll away and get tangled.
