"That is....dangerous!"

That was my bf's reaction upon seeing this. He's usually so supportive  Roll Eyes

Anyways, a measuring tape and one of those little scissors you get in sewing kits:

Action shot:

Thanks for looking!
Have the best night of your life,

You have such cute details. I especially love the rouching you did in the front neckline area-that went  really far in feminizing too.  Great job!

That's great! And the pin cushion is the bomb....i'd love to stab that with all my needles.

The hood is super sweet! It looks like something that someone with thick dreads would benefit from so they could fit all their hair in! Great job Smiley

dude you made those?! That is incredible! I know nothing of jewelry making, but have heard the term resin thrown around a lot-is that what these are made out of? Anyways, they look fantastic.

Hey! I like how you did the wide halter straps, I don't see that often... Also digging the grommets in the back-did you use interfacing? I tried putting grommets into fabric before and they didn't turn out well at all so I now resort to grommet tape. But yours looks much cooler!
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Nine Rings-which i think equals three circuses.... on: March 15, 2010 03:53:18 PM
Today I made rings.

Because they are like five bucks a piece at the lovely local Claires, and they rust unless you take them off which I for one think is stupid. Smiley

So I whipped some up. The actual ring part that wraps around the finger is these plastic rubbery things that came in a pack of assorted sizes from Dollar Tree. I believe it's for like hardware or something. I also used black elastic for some, that I just  hot glue gunned. Let me just say how much i love hot glue guns. I never used them till like this year but they are God's gift to crafting. So, needless to say, that's how I attached the items to the "rings".

(Can I just say how awkward it is to photograph hands? After a few attempts I was like-"really, are my hands really that old looking?" Who knew you could be insecure about that?!)

1. This is a bottle cap I got from Sweden and have saved because it reminds me of the Rage Against the Machine star, and
they are amazing:

2. This is a blatant rip off of jewelrybug's "Button Rings - lots of pics " post, but I added thread too:

3. This is just the end of a paperclip that i ripped off with my bare hands because i am strong:

4. Another button:

5. Some kind of wire stuff wrapped around and defrazzled at the end:

6. This was the end of a hair clip. The dollar store had like ten of these for a dollar with various musical themes:

7. A covered button, as an afterthought maybe white fabric was not the best choice as it's sure to be stained up after thirty minutes of wear.

8. A measuring tape:

9. This is my super duper original piece  Wink lol:

And this is my niece, just because I hope she makes you smile:

Thank you for taking a look!
Much love,

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Princess sleeves and fancy pockets (i.e. shirts that take more than 10 minutes) on: March 15, 2010 03:00:50 PM

You know those clothes with the annoying details that you know you'd never have the patience to make but actually look kinda cute? This is one of those.... I've been eyeing puff sleeves and embellished pockets for months but I think I'm suspicious of anything that actually takes time and effort to sew, hence the procrastination.

I ripped up a hideous salmon colored shirt that coincidentally had both puffy sleeves and the pockets and used that as a reference. The pockets were kind of tricky but I think its a good way to introduce a contrasting fabric, plus, um, they're pockets so whats not to love. I am gonna add a hood with the black/grey fabric too.

The Johnny Lang shirt was my fiances, I don't listen to him so I'm not sure what I'm supporting.....Since this was my first time trying these techniques, I just picked a shirt I didn't care about too much.

Here's my action shot. I know mirror pics are so myspace but it's the best i could do Smiley

And here it is on my littered bedroom floor:

Much Love!

...with old empty tea lights? You know, the cheap round candles that burn away in thirty minutes, leaving just a little flexible metal bottom....

I know a lot of people make new candles by pouring new wax into them, but that's not really what I'm going for.
If you intelligent ladies and men have ideas on some fun projects to make with the metal holders, please post here! Thanks!
