1  Isn't that just peachy?! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabulous5230 on: July 28, 2008 03:03:05 PM
As I mentioned in another post, I kinda went a little crazy at a fabric sale recently! Smiley

This is the second creation of the fabric splurge!!
It's just a little knit cotton stretch material, nice and soft, with orange and white stripes!

I wanted a cute + comfy dress just to bum around town in.
This was originally a circle skirt with a boob tube at the top!
I then realized I had lots of ribbon that I'd just purchased!
So, I braided together 2 navy and 1 white ribbon, attached it just under the boob tube, and meant to use it as a belt!

Well, while putting it on, I pulled the ribbons up, and realized it was so much cuter if I cinched the boob tube to the ribbons, and used them as a halter.

I love it!! It's super comfy and definitely easy to throw on in the mornings!

Let me know what ya think! Smiley

I only have the one picture, and because of the way I'm standing, the bottom looks all sorts of crazy!  Haha just my luck!

2  LBD - Little Brown Dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fabulous5230 on: July 28, 2008 02:48:58 PM
So my fabric store had a big sale, and I got some fabrics for $3, $4, $5 a yard!! Needless to say I got a bunch!!

Here's the first creation borne of my little shopping spree!!!

I made it almost a month ago now, I'm just so darn lazy about getting on the computer anymore!!

Anyways, please don't mind my nastiness in the pics, I did my best to cut myself out!! My mom wanted to take pics of it as soon as I showed her, after I finished it late at night! Sheesh...

Anyways, without any further rambling...
The Little Brown Dress!! Smiley

^^it really doesn't have any difference in the length of the front + back... I guess my arm maybe moved it up?? It looks quite silly in this pic though, but I'll promise it looks much more reguler in reality!

Smiley I'm proud!! It's a tad shorter than I had originally intended, but it's cute + wearable!  And soft!

3  Peace, Love, and Splatter Paint :) in Stenciling: Completed Projects by fabulous5230 on: July 04, 2008 04:05:30 PM
I saw a peace sign tee not long ago in my favorite store, Lucca! The peace sign was a crazy mix of bright colors, and I absolutely loved the shirt, except that it was $50!!
So, I created my own!!
I placed the pece sign differently than my inspiration shirt, just because it looked better this way, what with the loose V.Neck Tee!
I used freezer paper, sponged on a purple background, and proceeded to splatter different bright colors of paint on over the span of a week (letting each dry in between, and heat setting each!)!  At the very end, I sponged on a thin layer of gold for a little extra sparkle!

Work in progress!:

After removing freezer paper!
Some of the splatters snuck underneath the freezer paper, bleeding a little outside the stencil... This normally would bug me to death, but I actually ended up thinking it looked alright with the messy splattery theme:

And finally, me wearing it!
Forgive the flash... And the face! Eek. I had no one to help me take pictures!  This is just so you can see the position!:

Whaddya think!?

4  Gigi's Wild Side! in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by fabulous5230 on: July 01, 2008 04:03:23 PM
So I have this super sweet pomeranian, Gigi, who has forever had a problem minding her manners!!  She's been a bugger to house train, and when I allow her to sleep out of her kennel, I usually wake up to find 3 or 4 of my favorite pairs of shoes destroyed!  Lately, however, she's been a sweetheart and been on her best behavior! So, as a little treat, I made her a little Zebra print bandana! Smiley


Dancing, since she was so excited!:

These, of course, are after she had already dunked it in the water bowl!
There's a pink satin ribbon around the whole thing for the tie, but you can't really see it in the pics!
