351  Re: 25 Christmas gifts .. for only 5 $ all together in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by violentjayne on: December 09, 2006 09:27:06 PM
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

352  25 Christmas gifts .. for only 5 $ all together-( NEW PICS ADDED) in post in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by violentjayne on: December 07, 2006 09:58:51 PM

I wasnt sure wich board to post this in ...if there is a better catagory for it please someone let me know.... Any way here is my cool little gift idea for super cheap ... I got the Idea from  A simular gift my fatherinlaw recieved ... Its a corn filled heating pad.. great for sore muscles or to just keep warm

JUST HEAT ( microwave) FOR 2 MIN !  stays warm for more than an HOUR ! its pretty amazing ...

just make a simple bag ... fill with dry corn.. sew up opening and wallaa

there are 15 emoleyees at my work ...the bag of corn cost only 5 dollars and was purchased at a hardwear store ... I Have 10 bags done so far but I estimate I will be able to make 25 to 30 !

Just wanted to share a cool inexpensive Christmas ( or any ocation) gift .. that can pretty much be enjoyed by anyone regaurdless of gender or age .. and can be customized from person to person .. I used a purple hand dyed floral pattern for the girls and camo for the only 2 males..

Happy Hollidays !

354  Silky Singlet Nightie ( inspired by :lilithsatyne) pics are working now in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: November 26, 2006 09:01:43 PM
Hello Everyone ,

    I have long admired these singlet tops http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134560.0.( hope that link worked )
So today when I ran into some similar Clearenced Halloween fabric ... for 1.03 ... I snatched it up . Since my fabric is purple (with bats) and Im not a huge fan of purple I decided to make mine a little longer to wear as A nightie ( which Ill get more use from than a purple top ) Wink
I didn't use a pattern .. I just stared at Lilith's post forever then winged it .. I hope you all like.. PLEASE  comments and suggestions welcome !
This is my first attempt at this type of thing.

Sooooo here we go : also  quick side note .. I dont know why my aquarium photographs so green looking ... trust me in real life its CLEAR ( im not a negligent pet owner Sad

I'm not so fond of purple and red together either but red lace was all I had on hand and I was to exited to wait till tomorrow to go to the store  Grin ( i don't know why I look so terrible in this pic Angry


Close up .. I also used the clear straps

Thanks to everyone for looking
and Special thanks to lilithsatyne for the inspiration !
Have a great night

355  More Piratey Felt appliques in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: November 24, 2006 05:08:00 PM
Hello everyone  Wink

    Ive been on kind of a felt obsession lately ( every since I found out how many different kinds of it there are and for super super cheap )... Since I had another brown shirt given to me ( this one a little darker) I made another Skull and Cross Bones ... To make it I little different ... I used an embossed felt That really looks alot like leather ( people have asked if it is ) in person I also Put A gold tooth on this one and used a gold button that looks like a "gold coin" for one of the eyes . I kept this one on the side of the shirt like the other one , but tilted it the other direction just to mix it up a little ...

Any way ( nothing spectacular ) but i really like Therm so here they are

this is a bad angel for me  my bf was laying down when he took this

Close up of the embossed felt

And this is one I made for my Bf you cant really tell in the pic .. but his has a spiral of gold stitching in the big eye
He hasn't decided what he wants it on yet ( maby some jeans he thinks)

I cant wait to get some more felt so I can make some more different appliques .. Im thinking some anchors and ships for more pirate stuff .. But I also wanna try some other things like ( my beloved elephants )

Thanks for looking and if you have any Idea for more appliques please let me know.
Have a great day

356  Lotsa new stuff ,And the Best Pirate Fabric EVER! (pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: November 18, 2006 08:10:53 PM

Last month I went to some haunted houses with my mom and sis...One of them had the best line( yes I said line) ever! instead of being in the freezing cold rain.. it went through the isles of a THRIFT STORE where i got the most awesome pirate map fabric ever .. there was just this small amount
But amazingly it was just 25 cents!

So I made a mini ( not alot of options with such a small amount)

My Sister fell in love with the fabric and wanted something too ...So i made her this purse from the miniscule amount left over ..I had to do the back with a Skull and cross bones aplique I made from felt to keep with the pirate theme. and i lined the inside with fuzzy leopard and used an old belt for the strap

Here is the shirt I made myself to go with my pirate skirt ...Just another skull and cross bones from brown felt with gold stitching I made it kinda ragged on purpose ..to be more pirate ish..I also have a few ancor buttons I might add

This is a shirt I made for my cousin.. Its not really my style...but she is more girley and loves purple...I made yet another skull and cross bones applique only made this one from poka dot felt and added heart eyes and a bow I also added the straps..

 And while im posting here is another purse I made for my sister..

teenage mutant ninja turtles


I forgot to get a pic of the inside but its bright green fleece and has 2 inner pockets that zip and the whole purse zips

 here is a close up of the buttons I made from an old 70's make your own button kit

Thanks so much for looking
Have a great day

357  Rib cage dress and a little skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by violentjayne on: November 05, 2006 08:51:34 AM
  So what could be better than Halloween ? day after Halloween sales ! I found several cool t shirts marked down to 1 and 3 dollars so I stocked up on a bunch to recon ... here is the first one ... Many more to come.

The (black , orange, and white ) stripe area at the bottom is actually split , so its easier to get into and out of ... It fastens with the 2 little black buttons in the front.. the very bottom is black fringe, I wanted to use lace .. but couldn't find mine and was impatient .. I think the fringe turned out ok ... gives it kind of a flapper feel ...what to you guys think ?

side view

Gratuitous booty shot

This is just aquick skirt I whipped up for my little cousin ... It started as an xl womens dressy type shirt ...But i knew ( Aly) would love the sparkly fabric.

although she doesn't look to thrilled in the pics. .. she was actually pretty happy with the skirt .., ( she wasn't happy to be taking  the pics with her ( non matching shirt on ) he he !

so here they are

shirt tucked in

The pics don't show just how sparkly the fabric is ... its kinda see through so it as a gray satin underlayer .. she is demonstrating in this last pic

Thanks for taking the time to look !
 As always I'm a comment addict .. so feed back is much appreciated !
Have a great day

 so here it is ... its no wear near as good as the other corsets  that have been up recently .. . and it has no boning .. but none the less I'm really pleased with it .. please let me know what you think ...

 the front (Animaniacs)


the back .. by the way ignore the bra .. lol

now the reverse ( Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)very Picaso - ish



Thanks for looking .. feed back much appreciated .

360  Hot NURSE ! button-up mini-dress (with tute) pic HEAVY (now with bag) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by violentjayne on: October 21, 2006 08:35:21 PM
Yay! I finally made my sexy nurse dress! I'm really pleased with the way it came out I made the little red cross patch and added low pockets like on the front of lab coats. The belt is just one I had , but I think ill make one thats a little thicker eventually . I also want to come up with some more nurse/Dr type patches to put on the sleeve and maby a cool name patch too . so If you have any ideas please share them .also I REALLY NEED TO MAKE A NURSE HAT  to go with it so If any one knows how or knows a tute PLEASE HELP ME ! i would really appreciate it .I also took pics along the way ... its my first attempt at any kind of tute so bear with me ...

you can see the pockets in this one

Now to get started .. what I did was make a pattern dress along time ago out of some material I don't particularly care for .. just to get a shape I like for future reference . This one is pretty much a long t shirt that flares a little at the bottom...

I just double the fabric and trace the pattern dress

then pin and cut it out

then you remove the button strip and collar from an old  shirt
and pin it on... i reccomend to start in the middle of the back of the neck so everything ends up straight.

next just cut to desired legnth and hem , hem the sleeves and add your "hot ( insert theme here) button-up mini-dress" details and accessories..and wa  la !

Its super simple ! especially since the sleeves aren't separate pieces . I really hope that some one tries this and posts pics . I would love to see what creative versions you come up with ! I will definitely be making more also !

Thank you so much for taking the time to look.
Please let me know what you think .
Have a great day !
