31  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Fingerless Mitts + Sad Turned Happy on: February 25, 2012 11:15:02 AM
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.
32  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...

34  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!

38  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / fabulous feather wreath on: December 05, 2010 08:46:50 AM

I made this wreath for my college dorm room out of a feather boa and some glittery christmas ornaments. My dorm isn't allowed to have "greenery" because it's a fire hazard? or because it's messy? I don't know, but this was my way of getting around it while also being totally glam.

So cute! I used to make christmas ornaments out of lightbulbs when I was a kid. I did snowmen, penguins and santas, but I never thought to do a grinch one!
40  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fringe scarves (from scrap fabric!) on: August 10, 2010 07:51:49 PM

I've been really into scarves lately, especially fringy ones, so I whipped up these triangle fringe scarves out of scrap fabric and embroidery thread. They are perfect for dressing up a simple tee or tank and they are really easy to make!

The navy floral one is two triangle pieces sewn right sides together, and the brown paisley-ish one is just a square folded in half and sewn across the bottom. I also sewed some little handle-type ties to the ends to make it easier to tie, since my scraps weren't long enough. The fringe is made from embroidery thread which I tied into tassels and attached by hand. I'd be happy to make a tutorial, but only if you promise to post pictures of the ones you make!

Thanks for looking!
