21  Lucky Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: December 30, 2007 01:56:38 PM
And a potential misleading title. . . Grin

I wasn't sure where to post this skirt, but since I got the flowery fabric from the remnant bin and the black bands from an old T-shirt, I decided it could most closely be identified as a recon. Sorry beforehand about the blurry/dark photos. My camera/computer aren't working very well together.



Front!






Back!





Close up of pleats! There are two inverse(I think they're inverse.) pleats on the front and one in the middle of the back.



Close up of the bottom. I wanted the flowery part to be emphasized by two black bands and I wanted a slimmer shape in the skirt, so I gathered the bottom hem and sewed it to a black band that's the same size as the waistband. No idea why it's black/white.



I also wanted a tab closure. (Didn't quite work out as planned.) The edges don't match up exactly as depicted, but I made my own button hole! I wanted it to fit around my hips instead of my waist, but it ended up a teensy bit to big for me because I forgot about the stretch in T-shirt material.  Sad

I still like it! And if you were wondering about the title, it's a look inspired by Lucky magazine AKA my fashion bible!

I recieved!!!  *Please excuse the unmade bed. I was abed until my mom informed me that I had a package, which I opened immediately.*  Kiss


The contents of my package sorted into neat piles on my bed. Btw- inle_rah, how did you fit all of that in that box?  Huh


Fabric!!!


My favorite fabrics. I love the shiny looking one because the wrong side looks like striped candy!  Cheesy


The other super cute fabrics. MONKEYS!!! 


Iron on appliques in the shapes of ladybugs and butterflies. And some trimming stuffs!


And most importantly, knitting needles/crochet hooks!!!  Cheesy *When I first opened it, all I could see was fabric. Then I started peeling back layers and was ambushed by an avalanche of crochet hooks. Then more fabric. . .then another avalanche of knitting needles.*

Thank you sooo much, I love my fabrics. Especially the plaid one.  Grin Oh, and inle_rah, I can't find my knitting gauge thingy, so do you remember the size of the circular needles you sent me?

25  Homage to my busy schedule. . . in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: June 26, 2007 07:37:19 PM
And my instrumet of choice!
I've been busy,busy,busy forever. School, work, AP testing, vacations, more work, but now I've got (half) the summer to relax.
So what's the best way to unwind? To create of course!

Before:


I got this shirt at our marching band's UIL competition. . .or rather my dad bought this shirt at out band's UIL competition. An XL.


Shown with one of my perfect fit tees for sizing. Mmmm, Johnny Depp.

How big does he think I am?

After:


Cute! Side rouching and a boat neck instead of a boring crew neck T-shirt! *Ignore the mismatched pants, poor model-esque pose, and ungroomed hair.


Modeled on my floor. You get a better idea of the ruching. I like that the sleeves look longer.  Smiley


Close up of logo. Yeah, you wish you played the flute.

26  Reconstructed doll help in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by SaccharineSunshine04 on: December 19, 2006 12:17:12 PM
I'm trying to reconstruct a doll and I need help with the hair. I've dong the re-rooting thing with Barbies before but the baby doll's hair is harder to get out. Is there an easier way to get the hair out other than sitting around with scissors and pliers forever?

This is her hair. . .I know. . .and I've already picked out one row.

The inside of the head. The hair is stitched in there? It's harder to get out than a Barbie doll head!
Help?

27  Re: Hogwarts At Christmas!/Plain Old HP Swap GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by SaccharineSunshine04 on: November 27, 2006 08:23:11 PM
I got my stuff from RedMenace! And now Photobucket let me upload them, so here's my Harry Potter goodness!

I got a Gryffindor scarf! I'm ecstatic! I'm still waiting for it to get cold in Texas so I can wear it out, but I wear it around the house!

And a Pygmy Puff named Valentine and a "fully functional" Mirror of Erised. *There's a picture of Harry Potter in there.*

A Chocolate Frog ornament.

Gryffindor notecards, HP stickers, and a map of London underground.

The greatest thing after the scarf, "Charm" charms! From left to right, (top row) Morsmordre, Lumos, Alohomora, (second row) Expecto Patronum, Incendio, and Wingardium Leviosa!

Close up of my favorite two: Expecto Patronum and Morsmordre.
I can't get the picture of the Hermione and Crookshanks magnets to load! I know you have one, RedMenace.
But I love everything RedMenace and I hope you love what I send you. *Which I will be doing! The last day!*
P.S. All my friends are jealous of the scarf! They say, "Ask her to make me one!" I just laugh. "I joined a swap! I can't just ask her!" Really, I just want to be the only one with a scarf. ^_^.

28  Newsboy hat gone awry*IMG Heavy* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SaccharineSunshine04 on: November 11, 2006 08:38:57 AM
I used this Wild Things! Pattern Maker I downloaded to make a newsboy hat. But obviously, I didn't measure things right. The brim ended up being too big, so I cut it off and it actually made the hat some type of skull cap thing. I like it this way, so I'll guess I'll leave it and try again later! On to the pictures:

Ooh! Hat!

Back of hat! Do you have any idea how hard it is to take pics of the back of your head?

Nice side view.

Peekaboo!

It is equally hard to take a quality picture of the top.

Fun with hat!

30  Band Night in Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage by SaccharineSunshine04 on: October 05, 2006 04:31:13 PM
So, in band we have a "Band Night" and it's customary for everyone in a section (ie: flutes, tubas, French horns, etc.) to buy the seniors of their section senior gifts. I'm the kind of person who likes to give gifts that actually mean something, that are not generic, and it'd be really cool if we (underclassmen squad leaders, Emily and I) made our gifts! Or if you could just make suggestions, that'd be cool. As I'm not really friends with either of the 2 girls we have to get gifts for, make suggestions! Pretend they're you!

This is Katherine. She's the senior squad leader and dead pimpin'. I love Kat. Everything I really know about her, I learned on Myspace (sad I know, but it makes it slightly easier to get her a gift without her knowing) Enjoy:
Im Katherine, & I am happy.
first of all, I make being short look cool. my current drivers lisence says that I am 5 ft 6. yeah right.
i love music.
i love photography.
i love writing.
i love singing to songs that have meaningful words.
i am seventeen, and will be my desired age when the counter says i should. (she's 18 now and her counter reads 'Till Baylor makes or breaks me)
i am finally a senior.
i love taking pictures of myself & the ones i love around me.
(i am a camera whore.)
i never capitalize the letter i online. [its more scene when you dont.]
i use question marks after sentences.
i am currently second chair flute in the marching band.
face it, we rock your panties off.
some people like to call me weird.
i bite my fingernails mercilessly.
i am a hopeless romantic.
i trust people waaaay to easily.
i love driving around late at night with best friends.
i love jones and izze soda.
i love boys with long hair.
i am afraid of what lies ahead.
i am going to try to live my life to the fullest.
i sometimes get in trouble for not caring what anyone thinks.
i get jealous easily when it comes to my boy.
the little things are always the most important.
i could not possibly survive without eyeliner & lipgloss.
i love eating and being in the snow.
i love going to rock concerts.
bad grammar just flat out makes me want to slap a hoe.
misplaced modifiers make me want to knife the pope.
i am obsessed with yoga.
i am a pretty good belly dancer.
i want a puppy.
i try to always be honest, but i tend to accidentally mix things up a lot. (that sometimes gets me in trouble.)
i have a bad memory sometimes.
i make fun of emo kids.
i am agnostic.
psychology is what i want to spend the rest of my life doing.
i tend to be very unpredictable.
i am very, very impatient.
i have learned to be independent.
i put my keebler fudge cookies in the microwave.
speaking of cookies, i could eat a million of them. i love cookies.
i can put my legs behind my head, uncomfortably.
the joints on the left side of my body are double-jointed, but the ones on the right aren't.
i hate being in large crowds.

i draw on my mirror with dry erase markers. i throw my CDs around. i can't sleep unless my door and closet are closed. i duck my head slightly when i am hypnotized by a movie. i hate cardboard. i recycle every piece of paper that comes down my path. sometimes i think i am temporarily bipolar. i think if you are going to speak English, know how to write it like a true believer. the only way to win my heart is to have sharp wit with a twist of crude humor. double entendres make me happier than a clam. i love laughing, and pepsi is my drug of choice. i am a caffiene and water addict, and could live off of chinese food.
i love archetypes. art. astronomy. boys. emo boys. cliches. clouds. colors. comedy. confessions. contrasts. crushes. dancing. drawing. daydreaming. dating. deja vu. discovery. eyeliner. chinese food. converse. conversations. chopsticks. cold. epicureanism. experience. existentialism. fire. flexibilty. friends. genetics. grammar. hugs. insomnia. irony. jellybeans. laughter. letters. lightning. lipgloss. love. neon. nonsense. novels. personification. philosophy. psychology. pirates. psuedonyms. punctuation. puns. quotes. reflections. rhyme. romance. routine. sand. secret admirers. shoes. shows. singing. snow. sonnets. staring. strangers. sugar. surrealism. sushi. thrift stores. tomfoolery. torture. tragedy. vans. velcro. verbs. vintage. words. you.

P.S.- Kat talks a lot. Grin

I have no pictures of the other girl, Kristi. I'll try and find one. I also have no information on her as she has no Myspace and her boyfriend is retarded (he gave me absolutely no info. on what to get her and they've been dating for about a year now). But she's our drum major and she's nice. Her favorite color is blue and she seems like a classic kind of girl to me (she's pretty in a normal way. Does that make sense?) She likes Christian music, if she were a color she's be aquamarine, she likes softball/baseball, ham is her favorite lunch meat, and she likes karate.

I'll just have to find some other way to stalk her. Oh well, you guys just post what you think and keep crafting because I think I want to try some of the things here. . .
