11  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 )
12  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!
13  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!)
14  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...
15  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!
16  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.
17  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!
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bag from pants, bag from coat on: June 22, 2010 02:05:47 PM


I made this bag out of a pair of men's cargo pants. It has the original pockets from the pants, but everything else is my own design.



This bag is made from a vintage leather coat. I kept the original pockets for this one too. It has a trendy metal zipper and metal rings.

19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / floral sundress and rose-embellishment top on: April 01, 2010 01:36:33 PM


I made this sundress out of a big, old, shapeless dress I got at salvation army. I keep playing around with different belts and scarves, cardigans, jackets, jewelry, etc. I feel like a little girl playing dress up... anyway, it has elastic in the waist and side seam pockets (my favorite!)

back view--


pockets!


I also made this blue top out of some old silk pajamas I never wear.



Close up of the roses--



another unflattering picture. sigh.


20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / dancing dress on: April 01, 2010 01:24:58 PM


I made this dress for a dance last semester. I added the bow after a Summer Finn moment (and to cover up some flawed stitching... shhhh). It zips up the back and it has a full circle skirt-- perfect for dancing!
