1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / appliqued tie dye shirt on: November 08, 2008 03:51:13 PM
 I love tie dyeing, but this one looked like it still needed a little something so I reverse appliqued an Ohm symbol onto it. The applique is knit.
I drew the design in reverse onto a circular piece of fusible web and ironed it onto the inside of the shirt. then I cut out the design, peeled back the paper from the fusible web and ironed on a black circle of knit.Then I topstitched around the design.

The flash made the colors look way more fluorescent than they are irl!

I just finished these up this week:

the straps on the faux leather Ohm bag drove me batty!  I ended up ditching them and just using the black cotton webbing.

I just love this jerry garcia hand print patch!
I made this out of a black twill with cord and denim patchwork.
The flap has a hidden zipper pocket!

4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / pimp toad and the mario girls on: June 16, 2008 04:55:58 PM
My niece and dd went to Animazement recently and this was one of their costumes!lol!

I made the toad hat and the red,purple and green hats. Wario made the purple overalls and the yellow hat herself.

One of their friends decided to go last minute so I made the waluigi costume at about 1am the night before the con!  I made the black skirt with a knit waistband and the only purple t-shirt we could find at walmart was a size 3x ! So I cut it down to a size small. It turned out pretty nice!

5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mushrooms! on: May 26, 2008 07:20:03 AM
I made this cosmetic pouch from some mushroom japanese fabric I've been hoarding!

6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Love purse on: January 29, 2008 05:54:22 PM
I made this love purse for my dd the other day! (thats her modeling it!)
made from faux-leather (vinyl) with Love reverse appliqued onto the front.
I had a hard time with the handle. I wanted to do it a bit differently ...to gather the fabric over a cord, but after breaking a zillion needles, I just decided to do it this way! lol!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Patchy skirt on: January 12, 2008 03:03:07 PM

I had been hoarding this brown rib knit that looks like corduroy for years!lol! I finally decided to cut into it and added a patchy border and pocket.
I like that its truly one size fits most because of the drawstring. It fits up to a size 2x!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / pin up girl pouch on: December 18, 2007 01:46:55 PM
I'm invited to a holiday de-stressing party tonight. We are supposed to bring either a girly gift or naughty gift and just relax, get our nails done,soak our feet, have a few drinks,and forget about the holiday madness for an evening!

I made this make up pouch for the gift exchange

 I also made a glasses (or whatever Wink) case for the hostess.

 I used printable fabric for the image and intended for the sepia one to fray around the edges, but the adhesive left it kind of stiff and no matter how hard I tried to pull those threads out,it just wouldn't fray.
I hope it doesn't look too bad with the raw edges showing. I really,really,really love this  vinyl....it feels so much like buttery soft leather. It was my last little scrap!
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / a bunch of mini wallets on: December 15, 2007 05:51:09 PM
I made this for a craft fair that was canceled at the last minute!
here's a few, I made 18 all together. My kids took some to use as gifts for a couple of white elephant christmas parties they went to!

I'm horrible at getting good inside pics, they always end up blurry or washed out by the flash - but they have plenty of room for license, credit cards, cash and even a little coin pocket.

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Holiday hemp scarf and a couple of patchwork scarves on: December 15, 2007 05:33:45 PM
I've made several of these hemp fleece scarves! They have some really silky soft fuzzy trim on the end and are embellished with red stitching.
 I was thinking of sewing tiny red buttons or jingle bells onto the green fuzzy trim, but was afraid that would be overkill!

here are 2 patchwork scarves made from linen that I made yesterday
