1  Revenge Sewing in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by dance_dance on: April 16, 2008 01:27:03 PM
So, my ex of a year dumped me out of the blue for NO APPARENT REASON. (Which I'm still angry about.)
He gave me a ton of clothes while we dated, and let me 'borrow' some of his. (He's not getting them back. HA!)

I'm totally stuck on this shirt that he gave me, though.
I think it's really, really stupid, so I never wore it.



I want to make it into something rad and wear-able.

Advice?
(I've looked at some t-shirt recons, but I just don't like any of them.)

2  My Unorignal "I love you" Book! (Pic OBESE!) in Valentine's Day by dance_dance on: February 15, 2008 01:25:18 PM
So, I wanted my boyfriend to have something that he can look back at in a couple of years and say "Wow. That girl made something AMAZING for me!"
But, I'm not original at all, so I searched the Valentine's Day threads here.
Thankfully, I found this http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=77622.0 and fell in love.

So, I got to work :]
But I didn't have anyone else to take pictures for me, so...I did it myself!
(They're kinda Myspace-y.)






























He loved it so much that he showed his mum :]
I don't have pictures of the book because I gave it to him the day I finished it. :/
But it also had a poem I wrote about us. haha.

3  Put a little abstract in your day! (Just a WEE bit of adult language...) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by dance_dance on: October 07, 2007 07:50:25 AM
When I get bored, I start going crazy on the back of index cards.
Recently (being yesterday) I upgraded to a sketchbook.
I don't know if you can really consider it 'art' so much as...colourful vomit.

I'm also not quite sure what to do with them. I tore them out of the sketchbook to colour them, and I didn't think much after that. Since they're probably worth less than a penny, I probably wouldn't sell them. Give them away to the Goodwill in picture frames for happy thrifters to find and cherish? Posibility. :]

Ha, no.
But here we go.
I've got 4 done right now, I've got like 7 or 8 to colour in.

The End of 'Freebird'

I was thinking about Guitar Hero and how they're like "Remember. No Stairway!" and how much Freebird sucked to play the first time I played career thing on it. haha.
Also, I was thinking about doves...but they turned into crows.

Little Black Dress

Yeah. I started thinking about clothes. If you think about it while you look, you can see the pants, the LBD, a bra and panties, and a blue cape. It's like a scavenger hunt!! :]

Green Doves for Alien Dinner

I just started drawing, and a green dove-like thing turned up. So I went with it, I guess. And...perhaps the grey on the bottom by the dove is...the alien's silverware? I don't know, I really didn't think too deeply about these.

Last, but not least, the language one.
It's really only the title.

Fuck the Sun!

Yeah. Warped Tour 2007 Kansas City. Anyone there? Remember Chiodos? Something about "It's hot out here...wait, did I just hear a 'fuck the sun'?"
Yes, I base my life off of that statement now. lol.
Also, it was really hot in my house and no one would turn on the air conditioning! (Now that it's cold...the air conditioning's on. x_x)

So, sorry for totally wasting your time, but I'd appreciate constructive criticism...or any "I hate it! Time-waster!"'s.
Sweet.

((If I get enough positive feedback, I'll probably share the others...for those of you interested. Right...))

--Suzy.

PS: I'm not quite sure why some have the black outline, and freebird doesn't. x_x

4  Nothing says "I'm sorry and I love you!" like a felt monster! :] Update! in Completed Projects by dance_dance on: July 10, 2007 12:21:55 AM
My boyfriend and I have been fighting a LOT lately, and I finally decided to do something nice :] (Since I've been starting most of the fights..bad me!)

So...I made him a felt monster :]
...but not just ANY felt monster...



Meet Roxy (I was listening to Fall Out Boy's cover of the song Roxanne...yes, I was listening to Fall Out Boy. Deal :])

Looks ordinary, right?
WRONG!



If you see in this diagram, it says "ily <3" sewn by myself :]
I sewed it under the tongue because they're the words hiding under my tongue every time we fight.
(I'm really cheesy, I know.  Tongue)



Here's Roxy's bum. Isn't it beautiful?
I had to sew a new panel of felt because I didn't want him to see the backward image of "ily <3" on the back. I like surprising people :]



And the inside of the mouth, with the beautiful tongue that took me 15 freakin' minutes!

Total time: 2 hours.
There might be something wrong with me...

It took so long because I went to GREAT LENGTHS to make sure that most things were JUST SO.

I was using some kind of weird stitch I learned in 4th grade at church...
It makes it really clean, but it takes awhile.


I REALLY hope my boyfriend appreciates this...because I know he's not one of the "crafty-appreciating" types.
(I'm also baking him cookies...because I KNOW he likes my cookies...even if he refuses to admit it.)


Now for the apologies:

Sorry for the lengthy post and the camera phone pictures :/
I'm wordy and too lazy to go get my crappy camera that likes to die unexpectedly.

Comments, (constructive!) criticism, anything else is more than welcome :]

THIS IS AN UPDATE! :]

The boy simply LOVED the monster :]
But...he didn't like my cookies? x_x
I mean, I know he had some of them, but he was like "Well, I would've preferred crunchy cookies."

He's so weird.
But thanks for the comments :]
It makes me feel better than great.
