1  Bone Cross Necklace Redux in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by VictorVenefic on: July 24, 2008 11:47:47 PM
Some of you may have remembered the chicken bone cross bracelet I posted way back when.

Many crafters suggested that I turn it into a necklace instead.

Here's the revamped Bone Cross Necklace

Chicken Bone + Wire + Hemp + Chain + Jump Rings + Clasp = This Necklace

2  Vest! First large scale sewn item. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by VictorVenefic on: July 24, 2008 11:43:09 PM
made out of a shirt wayyy too big for me. (it was a medium just to show you how small I am.) anyway here's the result:

I'm rather proud of it for a first time doing something like this. I like the fit. Kind of wished I didn't use the side with the design on it though. grr.

I also decided to use a zipper since I love zipper detailing but it's not one that can be split apart like a hoodie. oh well.

also, the zipper doesn't like to stay flat. I had it in a package where it was folded in half and the fold won't go away. sorry about that.

Anyway, hope you liked it!

I need to find some cheap slip-on canvas shoes that are blank.

Like these except blank:

Does anyone know where I can get a whole bunch of them really cheap?

Thanks for any help!

5  boyish something from something girlish? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by VictorVenefic on: June 03, 2008 04:51:48 PM
so my mom has this top that has a bunch of holes and she wanted to throw it away.

I stole it instead because I loved the color and the random design.

I was wondering if anyone had any ideas of what I can make with it that would be rather boyish. I'm a pretty femm guy btw so anything would be somewhat acceptable for me. haha

my last resorts would either be some sort of scarf thing or I'll just sew the bottom shut to make a lightweight bag for my sister.

thanks in advance!

7  Re: LDN STS pins in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by VictorVenefic on: March 21, 2008 06:48:12 PM
They look awesome! What contraption did you use to make them? I have a Badge A Minit button maker, but mine always turn out wonky. What's your secret? I won't tell!

I use the Model 100 Button Machine from Dr. Dons but I've heard most of the machines work semi-equally.

What do you mean by wonky. like what's going on?

The edges are never smooth like yours.  Mine is a hand press. Is yours fancier than that? I've done a couple that have turned out right, but it's kind of a crap shoot with me! Any ideas of what might be my problem? I follow the instructions to a T, but.......


This is what mine looks like:

The hand press machines require a lot more work and a results are usually a little more wonky. The machine I bought cost a tad bit more but the results are stellar each time. so I guess you could say my machine is a little bit more fancier.

Go here for a comparison between the machine I have and the Badge-A-Minit to see what I mean: http://www.buttonsonline.com/compare.html

8  LDN STS pins in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by VictorVenefic on: March 19, 2008 07:19:02 PM
I wasn't too sure where to put this, or if it was crafty enough, but here are pins I made out of an old London street atlas from the 1980s:

9  Finger Puppet of my Chemistry teacher last year. in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by VictorVenefic on: January 18, 2008 11:20:13 PM
My chemistry teacher, being infamous for being overly stress-giving yet hilariously absurd, was dying to have something made in his honor.

This is the result:

You seriously don't know stress until you've had this guy.

Trust me.

but about the puppet..

my hand-sewing skills are pretty horrible but I guess it turned out alright.

his eyes and the buttons on his lab coat are seed beads.

10  Gauntlets to throw down. in Knitting: Completed Projects by VictorVenefic on: January 09, 2008 10:51:42 PM
My first pair of (wearable and not hole filled) Gauntlets!

You may remember the pattern from here:
knitted up by farrah for that oh so delicious guy. haha.

er. yeah. anyway.

Here's one of them, the other being an exact mirror image:

Unfortunately, the yarn I used started to make them excessively furry.

I just cut the little buggers off with scissors every once in a while though.

Pretty basic but I still love them.  Grin
