1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Dachshund help? on: October 16, 2006 11:50:19 AM
I have a standard sized dachshund who has very short hair and is black and tan.  He gets very cold in the winter so I wanted to make him a coat.  I made a coat from Butterick... but I had to make size Small and it was too loose around his bum and he looks silly... anyone know of any weiner dog patterns for the long and short legged?
2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Lolita EGL swap? on: August 21, 2006 08:39:56 PM
I think it'd be a marvolous idea!!! I've only done 2 swaps myself and don't think i'm qualified enought ot start my own... so I thought I'd throw this idea out their for some of the more experienced swappers to maybe take advantage of...

In a loli swap there's some simple basic things we can make for one another other than an outfit... like....
-Bonnets/headdresses/mini top hats
-neckchockers/corset cuffs
-aprons
-hair pieces/bows
-fake eyelashes
-arm warmers/leg warmers
ect...

I think it'd be awessssomme! anyone agree?
3  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Sailor, sea born, swap? on: July 14, 2006 07:21:35 AM
I don't know I was just thinking of a nautical themed swap. I've never started a swap myself, so if anyone likes this idea they can run off with it. I just think some sparrow, seashell, stripey, sea faring swap would be very cute! and fun!
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Complete Gothic Lolita Cosplay costume in 4days on: June 08, 2006 08:26:32 AM
ALright... This all started on Sunday and was finished by Wendsday, I was really suprised... Due to my own procastination I was determined to have a costume before A-kon started on Friday.  I was only going to be able to go one day out of the 3... Akon's an anime convention for all of those who dont know. I could only go one day because the saturday of akon I've got to leave to Canada for an Alaskan Cruise fun!.
Sorry if the pictures look weird I had to mess with the contrast to let you actually see because my camera's flash is broken.
Anyways... here it is.... BTW i'm a gothic lolita.


Dress

5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cute Turtle plushie on: June 02, 2006 07:53:37 PM

6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / AWESOMELY SIMPLE VIDEO GAME CRAFTS! on: May 30, 2006 04:08:25 PM
Since my boyfriend just moved out of his house, he's had some extra time on his hands just like his 3 roommates.  I sparked up the idea of using perler beads to create pixelated characters from video games awhile back when I made my boyfriend a hanging mirror ornament of a black mage for his car in spring.  They went crazy over the idea and produced quite a number of creations...

IF your wondering who these characters are just google them I'm sure if you play videogames you'll recognize them quickly.


That's the gift I made my boyfriend that sparked the whole idea.


1-Chocobo, I think it's Final Fantasy 4 version.
2-MetaKnight, Kirby Superstar
3-Moogle, Final Fantasy III
4-Moogle, Final Fantasy FFVI?
5-Link, Zelda first game.
6-Megaman, megaman
7-Red Mushroom, Mario Superstar Coll.
8-KoopaKing, Super Mario Bros.
9-1up Mushroom, Mario Superstar Coll.
10-Megaman, Megaman
11-Magus, ChronoTrigger
12-Simon Belmont, Castlevania
13-Mario, Super Mario Bros.
14-Luigi, Super Mario Bros.


15-Ryu, Ninja Gaiden
16-Super Star, Super Mario Bros.
17-White Mage, Final Fantasy I
18-Gemini Man, Megaman III
19-? box, Super Mario Bros.
20-Frog, ChronoTrigger
21-Kirby, Kirby Super Star
22-Super Sonic, Sonic II

Detailed shot.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / TUTORIAL ADDED 1/8/06 Japanese Lolita Sock/legwarmers on: January 01, 2006 05:42:32 PM
I made these for my cosplaying... they're more gothic lolita or EGL than anime

I just threw them together last night and finished right before the new year at 12AM lol






Please don't mind my feet and my dumb expression.... ALSO I DIDN'T MAKE THE DRESS... I wish I had lol but I'm working on one like it soon. I bought this one from hot topic.

Comments would be wonderful Cheesy

Also.. If you've never seen these here's some pictures of what they're SUPPOST to look like :




EDIT:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


STEP 1 MEASURING
>>A<< Measure just below you knee, where its marked A on the picture above. Write that number down. 
>>B<< There are 2 methods for getting measurement B.  Either multiply what you got for measurement A by 1.5 OR get a pair of bellbottom jeans that have the bell you like (the widened bottom) and just take a measuring tape and measure that.  Write this down also.
>>C<< For measurment C simple measure from the bottom of your knee where you measured for A and then measure to below your ankle or all the way to the floor.


STEP 2 PATTERN
>>MATH<< Take the measurments you wrote down earlier and divide both measurment A by 2 and measurment B by 2.  You need to add 1.5 inches to each measurment for your stitching.
>>PATTERN<< Get some newspaper or a paper bag and flatten it out.  Get a yardstick or ruler and marker.  Measure out a line just like the one in the picture above as long as what you measured for C.  Then take the math anwser of A and make a line coming from the top of the line you just made.  Take the math anwser of B and make a line coming from te bottom of line C.  Finally make a line connecting A and B like in the picture.


STEP 3 CUTTING
Get 1 yard of material.  Fold it once in half and then once again. So it looks like the picture above.  Put the pattern with C on the fold. Cut.  You should get 2 piece when your done.
SPANDEX--- Get some spandex waist, it doesn't matter what width and cut it to like 1.5 inches less then what you MEASURED A as.


STEP 4 SEWING
1.)  Make the ends touch and sew 5/8 down the edge.
2.)  Sew the the spandex waisting on the upper part.  Make sure to stretch it alittle while you  sew it on the top and make sure you sew it on the WRONG side close to the edge.
3.)  Fold in the spandex so its not showing and sew 5/8 from the folded edge.  Fold in the bottom about an inch and do the same.

OPTIONAL!!!!! Use the measurements from STEP 1 to get the lengths you need for your lace, fur, ribbon, ect... and then sew it on the outside.
