It has been a while since I've posted here, so I figure I'd show you some projects I've done lately. I also have some questions, any feed back would be nice, and my bf would appreciate it too- I keep on asking him questions that he just doesn't comprehend ("should I bring this seam in?"..... "uh.. sure"), poor guy.
this was made from one of my boyfriend's old shirts.
I may have to mess a little with this dress- I've lost some weight since I originally made it.
Okay, Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a nice day,
I just moved into a new place, it's campus housing (I'm tagging along while my boyfriend gets his masters), so I can't make any permanent changes. Do any of you brilliant craftsters have any ideas of how to make this white painted box feel like a home? I'd show you pictures, but they would bore you to death, white white white....
We will be moving out in August, so any decorations that would be easy to pack away and use at our next place would be ideal. It seems a little silly to decorate for a few months, but I know I'll feel better every minute I'm here if it was a homier.
i'm not entirely sure whether this is actually a pop up book or not, it's more like a page from a pop up book. I got the idea for the construction from a book I found at the library. This was my first attempt, I basically decided get all the mistakes out of the way and hopefully next time come out with something better. At any rate, here it is-
i need to figure out how to get the paper to stay straighter
ok, this is my first post in this section, i just learned how to stencil using freezer paper- It's very addictive...
I found this fabric while i was raiding my mum's fabric stash, she wanted me to use this fabric for something, but i'm not really the sort who wants to wear clothing (in this case a skirt) with cute little children around the hemline, to remedy the... quaintness , i stenciled an image from edward gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies on the front of the skirt
this is the first one I did, it's john waters strangling a flamingo (though hopefully you can tell that on your own) I'm not especially happy with it, and as you can tell, i was not in an ironing sort of mood when i photographed it-
and last, the lovely marty feldman as Igor in Young Frankenstein- this is also on a skirt, in this case the fabric came from a hideous sheet that we inherited from my grandparents
I need more over the knee socks, but i'm sorta in a money crunch, so I want to try to make some out of stretchy material. I was thinking that i could make some kickass socks with fun prints or old t-shirts with logos.. has anyone tried anything similar? any thoughts? I am a little worried about the foot bit..
