301  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / a myriad of different patches a made forever ago 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 !
302  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue fire Pleated skirt .. my first time making pleats ! 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 !

305  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Amazing Spiderman / Valentines Day singles mini-skirt (reversable) 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 !

307  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - reversable skirt . ( gift for my sis) 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
308  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / 25 Christmas gifts .. for only 5 $ all together-( NEW PICS ADDED) in post 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 !
309  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Silky Singlet Nightie ( inspired by :lilithsatyne) pics are working now 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
310  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More Piratey Felt appliques 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
