As I mentioned in another post, I kinda went a little crazy at a fabric sale recently!
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!
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!
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!!
^^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!
I'm proud!! It's a tad shorter than I had originally intended, but it's cute + wearable! And soft!
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!:
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!
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!
what is the difference between jersey and any other knit fabric?? I love knit fabrics in general, and am hoping to purchase fabric this weekend to play around with, but I'm not sure if there's a difference between jersey + any other knit... so someone please unstupify me and help me out?!?! haha!! and also, what is the easiest knit/stretch fabric to work with? I love stretch farics, they're so much more forgiving, and I would liike to make some clothes out of them this weekend! thanks so much for any help/advice you can offer!!
so i bought this fabric a way long time ago before I even had a clue what to do with it... I had just started looking on craftster and considering playing around with a sewing machine, and I thought maybe if I bought some fabric, I would magically get an idea!!! Well, that was about 2 months ago! A couple weeks ago, I decided what to do with the fabric (in between buying it and using it, I had decided that the fabric was much uglier than I had thought when I first bought it, but I still loved the feel of it!)
i have an extremely old green Kenmore sewing machine... it was my mimi's (my grandma) when my mom was young, and she let me have it a while ago... I just started raelyl getting interested in sewing about 6 months ago, and started actually using the sewing machine even more recently. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped sewing correctly mid-shirt. I'm not really sure what's going on with it, as i am not extremely familiar with sewing machines at all... Can anyone help me? i've tried everything i can think of..
okay so this was pretty simple, but i'm still SUPER proud of them! today was the beginning of "Double Wolf Dare Week" at my high school... it's a week when the swhole student body raises money for a certain foundation, doing whatever we can... this year, we chose the Oklahoma Brain Tumor Foundation! during the week, we have random 'dress-up days' to keep everyone in the fun, money-donating spirit! haha! today was hero day, and last night me + best friend/ boy friend couldn't think of anything to wear!! so i whipped up these neat little numbers: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v237/beachblondeqt810/crafster/b30386cb.jpg ^us at lunch... sorry for the deformed-looking-ness of my face, this picture looks super pixelated for some reason! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v237/beachblondeqt810/crafster/effc73ea.jpg ^boyfriend. he loves his shirt
