32  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper stop-motion animation! on: July 02, 2012 12:01:50 PM


I made an animated music video type thing with paper cutouts! It's stop-motion, so for every frame I had to move the paper parts just slightly. It's about building an airplane. My friend Jahn Sood wrote the song.

Here's the link to watch it on youtube-- http://youtu.be/dH2sLmMqeCo

It took me a day to make all the cut outs for the set and characters, then another day to do the animating part. Then I did some editing and tweaking the next day. This is my second animation, and I'm really proud of it! I hope you like it!


(also, here's a link to my first animation-- http://youtu.be/EPWvMOGtUDg and here's the craftster post that says more about it -- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=409473.msg4833277#msg4833277 )
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sundresses in the city (4 dresses!) on: June 16, 2012 07:53:36 PM
It gets horribly humid here in the summer, so I made some sundresses so I can still look cute, even when my hair gets frizzy and my face gets sweaty... haha, ew.



This one is my favorite! I made it out of a bedsheet. Must have been a decent bedsheet too, because it doesn't seem to wrinkle much, even when I'm really sweaty (gross, I know, sorry). It has a zipper in the back and it kind scoops down in a sexy way, but I can't get a good pic of the back for the life of me...





I made this pink one out of an old shirt-dress my grandma gave me to "make something with." She said she bought it decades ago and never wore it because it fit her weird. I remade the entire top part (before it was a v neck blouse thing with sleeves). I kept the skirt part-- but I cut off the top part of it and gathered it to make it poufy. And I kept the button placket, but I added a few extra holes on the top part. I also added pockets! And I made covered buttons instead of the metallic ones on the original.





This green one is just an 80's-ish dress I bought at a thrift store. It was ankle-length, so I just cropped the hem to my knees and used the extra material to add the pockets!



I made this white one out of fabric that's been in my stash forever. It's white with a small white floral pattern. For the lining, I cut up an old white nightgown-ish thing I grabbed when my aunt was getting rid of some old clothes. It was too thin to make a garment with, but it makes a perfect lining. I used it for the pockets too. The back of the dress is shirred so I didn't need a zipper. And the straps cross in the back.

And here's the wine pic!

This is SO COOL! I want to make some armor for a dungeons & dragons costume. It doesn't have to be as functional as this, but gahhh, this is so awesome and inspiring!

This is so lovely! I really like the atlas fabric!
36  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper cut-outs for stop motion animation on: June 02, 2012 08:56:24 AM


I made this stop-motion animation with paper cut-outs! I'm really proud of it. I've never done any sort of animation before this, but I love making stuff out of paper, so I wanted to try. I used different kinds of paper for more of and arts and crafts look-- notebook paper, magazine text, card stock and even some brown bag paper.

I can't figure out how to embed the video on the post, so here's the youtube link-- http://youtu.be/EPWvMOGtUDg

How I made it: I set up a video camera and light over my paper, then I used a free demo version of iStop-motion to capture the footage. How it works is you move the paper cut-outs just a little bit, then press the space bar to take a picture of it. Then you move it a little more for the next frame and on and on. It takes a long time-- this 2 minute animation took me 6 hours! But it was really fun! I definitely want to make more, with different kinds of paper and different styles and stuff.

(PS, If anyone knows how to embed the video on this post, please share. That way people don't have to go to a new page in order to watch it. Thanks!)

His name is Robert Paulsen. His name is Robert Paulsen...

Great owl! And the fingerless gloves too. I kind of want to try those.

I'm always swearing off the needles, then picking 'em up again. Something about all that colorful yarn... But then, I love scarves and wear them all the time.
38  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Senior formal gown (made from bedsheets!) on: January 16, 2012 08:00:12 PM

(the blue one)

I really wanted to make a long gown for senior formal, even though all my friends planned on wearing short party dresses. So to make it a little more casual, I used a plain cotton fabric. And by fabric, I mean bedsheets. Target was closer than the fabric store, and the set was half off. I thought I was really smart, but all the time I saved skipping the fabric store was spent steam ironing the fold marks out... and I didn't have an ironing board, so I did the whole thing on my wood floor. It took me about two days to make. And one of those days was the day of the dance... It was crazy, but the dress turned out stunning. I felt really pretty in it, and had such a memorable time.

Oh, and it has pockets! (cause I needed to carry some tampons... shhh!) Although, I don't know why I carried that gold clutch bag if I had pockets. That doesn't match at all. Silly younger me...

Adorable! Great fabric. I love those colors!
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to repair or disguise moth damage on wool coat? on: November 13, 2011 11:19:10 PM
I got this vintage camel-colored wool coat from a garage sale for $10. I've altered it and brushed out the wool, so it's already looking gorgeous, but there are a few spots that look like moth snacks. They aren't holes like when a moth eats your sweater, they're just spots where the soft fuzzy part is gone and there's a little woven part showing through.

Does anyone know a good way to repair or disguise this kind of thing? I have leftover fabric from altering the coat if that might come in handy. Any other tips on reviving a vintage coat? Thanks!
