341  a myriad of different patches a made forever ago in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: December 31, 2006 02:06:37 PM
Hello everyone ,

      Here are some patches I made a while ago ... not sure were  to post them ... but I firgured here was a good a place as any ... i made them by simply printing them out on iron on paper .. then i ironed them onto an old bandana then ironed on innerfacing to that the put on another piece of bandana then stitches around the whole thing twice with the #5 zig zag stitch on my machine .... I really likt them alot .. But they cant go in the dryer Angry  But they are washer safe and thats good enough for me ... air dyr is fine .......

close ups ( kinda )
First off conjoined twins !
Cephalopagus.. I believe

Haywood Jablomy

On of the best movies EVER ! "WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE"

My hero " Dawn Weiner"

Coop Frankenstine .....

Thse are super easy way to make custome patches ... although the iron on paper isnt exactly cheap ... if you keep your patches the same size as I did .. you can get 9 per sheet wich over all is very inexpensive !  
Thanks for looking
Have a very Happy new year !

342  Re: Blue fire Pleated skirt .. my first time making pleats ! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: December 29, 2006 03:09:41 PM
Jayne, such an awsome skirt! I really like the trim on the skull reverse side, too!

Pleats are really quite easy once you start. Now you can make several more! It also sounds like Santa was good to YOU!

I made a mini somewhat like it this week, but not reversable or with bondage straps. Just a cute pleated hem like yours. Cheesy Some pants got stuck in the agitator and tore up one of the legs.  Shocked So they became a skirt for spring. Roll Eyes

Hello , Isnt that messed up when the washer attacks clothes Angry , But its awesome that you were able to make it into a cool skirt ... did you post it ? I didnt see it .. If you didnt you should Id love to see . One time my washer stopped draining and water went everywhere ... and when the repair man came he found that an entire tank top ( one I had been missing ) was stuck in the drain hose  Angry Angry and unfortunately mold had taken over and the top wasnt salvagable  Sad but oh well.....

i love this skirt. rawr.. the fabrics are soooooo awesome.

a black zip might have suited the two fabrics a little better, but even soo. rock on.

First off thank you . And I couldnt live with the blue zipper either  Wink So I stitched some left over seam binding over it .. to hide it a little

I think it helps

I ran outta black thread so I used invisible ... ironicly it shows up super shiney in the pic ... but in real life its very hard to see... gotta stock up on the black thread !

Thanks again to everyone for the comments
Have a great night

343  Blue fire Pleated skirt .. my first time making pleats ! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: December 29, 2006 12:57:28 AM
Hello every one ...

  First off  I got a serger and a dress form for Christmas ... Im super Happy Grin ... Any way for my gift exchange at work some one gave me this Blue flame fabric ...so I wanted to make something out of it to wear next time I work ... Ive been wanting to try to make a pleated .. school girl type skirt for a long time ... so I finnally did

The front ... I adda little metal rings on the belt lops and made removable bondage straps ...

some close ups...

the PLEATS !

 the back zipper ... ill probably trim it with black too .. i think the blue of the zipper is a little to dark .. what do you think ?

And in keeping with my obssession ....ITS REVERSABLE !

For the second side I used some skull fabric with yellow eyes ... I added the extra trim over the ruffle to hide the seams

I dont know why the back seam looks croocked in this pic , trust me it isnt like that  i think its the angel my bf took the pic  any way as you can see I used some more seam binding to hide some of the blueness on this side

Well there  you have it my first attempt at pleats . I think they turned out pretty good , what do you think ?

As always thanks for looking !
 Have a Happt New Year !

347  The Amazing Spiderman / Valentines Day singles mini-skirt (reversable) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: December 17, 2006 11:23:27 PM

    I think I have developed an UNHEALTHY OBSSESSION with reversable clothing lately .. I guess I just figure if I gotta take the time to line it I may as well get a 2 for 1 . So here is my latest endeavor..this fabric is great Iv had my eye on it for months & there was a huge piece in the scrap bin) but it was 10 $ then it got marked down to 6$ I still helled out and my patience prevailed it was reduced again to 3 $ so I snatched it up ! It has hearts which I usually would not wear (unless there wear bleeding anatomical hearts Wink) But for the irony in this case I made an exception.. It is a news paper print singles ad with hearts circling some of the "better ads" I think it will be very Ironic to wear it on valentines day ( cuz I'm not single ) plus i might put x,s on some of the adds like I dated them and they sucked lol Grin .. The  Spidy fabric was also in the scrap bin for 1.25 so it was mine .

Anyway Side A.

I realized Iv never sat in any of my posts so here ya go ...me sitting

Side B.

Here is a close up of the "vallentines day singles" fabric...

I had to first line the "ads" with some plain white ... to make it less see through

I also used some red splotchy seam binding to trim out the bottom . also I still have a bunch of this fabric so I'm thinking Ill probably make a corset out of it next  Grin
 Thanks so much for looking.
Have a great night !

349  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - reversable skirt . ( gift for my sis) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: December 11, 2006 01:45:46 AM
Hello everyone  Cheesy

    I finally got a break from making " corn heating bags " long enough to work on some clothes ! yay ! ... Any way I made this skirt for my sister for Christmas ... " So she better not be peeking "  She dosent wear skirts alot but she does Like Ninja Turtles alot .... So Im hopeing she likes this . Its reversable .. one side was a Ninja Turtles bed sheet  The other side is Just green with a huge Turtles Patch So you still get the idea if she isnt feeling adventurous enough to wear the whole big pattern ....
So here we go  Oh and we are different sizes so its a little big on me .. But you get the idea..plus I didnt bother to put it with a  cute shirt that looked right .. so just imagine it with cute shirt of your choice

Side one ( not so great pic )

waist band  I use 1 and 1/4 inch elastic

Or she can fold it over like this

Side 2 . I made the patch from the left over material some innerfacing and  heavy zig zag stitched around it

Yea ! ! the patch is also a pocket .. me demonstrating it  Cheesy

Ok so PLEASE TELL  me what you think .. I would love any suggestions on how to make it cooler.
Im thinking of maby adding a removable over layer  made from some like net-ish material ... not tule or fish net .. but something more substantial .. like ...
Anyway and putting big holes in it wear the turtle parts are on the  first side .. to kinda tone down some of the excessive white ... since neither of are us are big on white clothing.. any way y what do you guys think .. also maby pockets or bondage straps or Huh? please help

 Thanks so much for looking

hello ...

here is the one one I made for my grandma with the inner bag ... I stitched my outer bag to the inner bag that way she can just pull the outer bag inside out and hand wash it in the sink and let it air dry .. I did it this way because I know my g-ma and if she miss places the outer case shed probably never use the plain white corn bag ...
Plus here is also some pic of the finised pile  Grin of a variety of shapes sizes and fabrics .. minus 2 I already gave out ...


Thanks for looking
Have a great night
