Oh Graphic Designers and their attachment to 'Lorem Ipsum'.
My brother has that tattooed across his chest in a tattoo font that he designed while still in school...
He, of  course, told me that it meant "bad ass" in Latin (And I guess 'de lorem ipsum' is 'pain itself', which is fairly badass...). But then I learned of the incredibly dorky graphic designer connection.

This is so awesome. WAIT!? You're here in Halifax?  I must go see this in person now. Of course, I wouldn't go see my brother's skateboard there at the auction on the weekend, but i'll probably go see this.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Power Ranger Apron! on: April 07, 2007 03:20:29 PM
I bought a power ranger pillow case at value village forever ago and have just been waiting for the right idea to come along so I could use it. Aprons seem to be the thing lately, and really, who doesn't want an featuring the original mighty morphing power rangers?

So here be go

original pillow case:


Design sketch:

the shape of which changed slightly when I realized how short I am and how long it would be... and that I only had so much pink fabric and had to make it work within the confines of that. It became shorter and wider, which worked out well... I also skipped out on the details, oh well.

And the apron in all it's glory:

There are pockets at the top of the pillowcase part in case you can't tell.

And on:


This is definitely one of my favourite things I've made, I can't wait to wear it, I'll be the coolest, cookie baking kid on the block...

I like to use the top part of jeans as linings for bags. With a pretty fabric on the outside, it's a nice way to use the jeans without the outside screaming "hey look, I'm made of jeans!" . The denim makes the bags nice and sturdy and you have a ton of already made pockets on the inside to boot. (As well as belt loops for clipping on keys and such).

guh, wow! those are superb! I love them all! such a great use of old clothing, that I'm sure look much more flattering as a pattern on a bag than a pattern on a body.

The colours are great! And I think it would be quite perfect for something soft to play on the floor on and can definately be something he can grow with. Heck, my aunt just gave me an afgan now at 19 in very similar colours, I could only have wished to have something so useable growing up.

thanks everyone!

did you use a pattern for the shirt or did you do it freehand?

I actually just traced a storebought one i already had and made adjustments and changes from there.
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Two purses and a travel necklace holder thingy... on: January 31, 2007 06:12:21 PM
First, a bag I made foreeever ago for a independant project in my high school art class over a year ago. it was part of a set. I don't have pictures of the matching wallet, notebook and phone cozy though.





Next is a purse I made my mom for christmas, she had specifically requested a black and brown bag... this was a difficult fabric finding task, but I really lke how it turned out, and so does she thankfully.







and one with the flash off, as the fabric don't photograph the best.



And finally,my mother, after getting all her necklaces tangled over and over on a trip, asked me to make her a "jewelry roll". I had no idea what she meant, so after a few google image searches, I came up with this. You put your necklaces in the little buttoned loops and then roll them up to prevent the horror that is trying to untangle chains.

I made a little t-shirt for my Rori the other day.
She was feeling a little camera shy, and wasn't too interested in showing off her new shirt but I got the best I could.

It was going to be a hoodie, as that's what I traced to make it, but I didn't have enough scraps of fabric, so stopped when I got this far.
