111  Re: Make Me A Reusable Shopping Bag Swap Gallery! in The Swap Gallery by Glamis on: December 12, 2008 11:52:18 AM


Since my partner flaked, here is what I send to her:

We had a "nautical punk" theme. I hand-dyed the fabric and bag is trimed with red bias.



And here is the detail of the Freezer paper stencil/applique thing. The bows and the lower safety pin are "real", the rest is stenciled/painted



and I added an eyelet and attached a little skull-formed purse. The "face-lines" are machine stitched




Now I am sad I send it, because I think it is pretty cool.. yay for self-praise Wink

I think Dr.RubyDoomsday won't post it anymore so here is the doll I sent to her:



it is a vampire bunny and it has two tiny, bloodstained teeth (you can't really see that in the photo)

Here is the back:


it is wearing a little corset and a puffy, long skirt. The joints are movable

Here is what I got from Dr.RubyDoomsday:



Her name is Venus Thigh-Trap and she is quite a handful Beware! She lost both of her eyes made fom beads through transportation but I wont glue them back in because she looks quite scary without them too. You cant really see it on the photo but she wears safety pins instead of scrunchies. Funny!...eh..creepy. And she is kind of scented, I  would guess lavender..

Here is the doll that  got from Jeane:



She wears her head on a chain round her neck. Seems like Jeane molded the face. Nice job. I love how cats eyes seem to stare at you!
Now I got two headless dolls(I already got one from Smmarrt)
Maybe they can propagate me a headless army that enables me to take over world dominaten...muahhhh hhh

Thank you guys! Cheesy

I received my doll from Smmarrt:


According to the cute little card she added she must be a missing member of the Addams Family so I am going to name her Thurday cause that is today, the day she arrived.
She is so cute, in a creepy way of course! The hanger is attached to her back.




Another creepy thing about the package: Smmarrt also send some marshmellow pumpkins but they instantly vanished when the got in contact with my oral cavity..scary! (You can see the empty package in the first pic)

Thank you very much Smmarrt! Dankeschn!

117  Bert got rid of Ernie in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by Glamis on: September 03, 2008 03:08:05 PM
So here is my contribution:

It is (obviously) a Bert cozie




it is beadwork on a satin scrap.
The lining is also made from the satin:


Here is a close up from the beads and the stitching:


and the coolest thing about it is that his hair wired so can can play hair dress up with it


If you got that far you might wonder what this cozie is for. Huh
Well, have a guess..

it is
a cozie
for
my
eyebrow tweezers!


Got it??!! Bert...unibrow...Ha rhar!

I have to admit that the idea behind it was not completely useless. I made it because I wanted something for the tweezers so I can find them better in the abyss of my purse. At the end the useless character still showed up because the opening of the cozie is not closeable and the tweezers fall out and still hide in the depth of my purse.. Undecided

Anyhow.
Hope you like it!

118  octopussy blouse in Needlework: Completed Projects by Glamis on: August 14, 2008 01:05:36 PM
This was one of my first and extensive stitching projects.
I had this blouse in a scrubs kind of colour. I like the colour but did not like to look like if I flew from the OR.
So I made this stitching. It took a few days and I can not figure out if I can accept how the motive deforms when I wear it..



the front:



shoulder detail:



arm detail:



a very blurry me modeling it:



and if anyone is interested the layout scribbels:



I drew this directly on the fabric with a white polychromo pencil, corrected it and then drew the final motive with a ballpoint

119  Zombie teddy bear in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Glamis on: July 12, 2008 02:50:14 AM


I had this burda pattern (German) from a teddy that was supposed to look like that: http://www.burdafashion.com/de/Download/Geschenk-Ideen/1333669-1553993-1553929.html
Well. Not after my fancy:

 

It is made from scraps (cotton and fleece) and the ribs, bone and eyes are made from polymer clay.
Completely handsewn! And I totally like the colour. I is a kind of rottenish, decaying blue



It is about 5.3 inches high (13,5 cm) and heres a photo of it in the palm of my hand to get an idea of its size

120  Wonder Woman in CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES by Glamis on: July 04, 2008 12:26:51 AM
I devoured a lot of comic books when I was little. They were so cheap to get at the flea market.
Needless to say that all of the characters where my heroes. Since we can only post one entry I decided to go with "girl power" and chose: WONDER WOMAN I also saw this Micky Mouse shirt somewhere on TV an where the head was substituted by the wearers head and liked the idea of metaphorical becoming your own childhood hero.
I started with a huge grey T-shirt and added some billion layers of fabric paint with the help of freezer paper stencils. The details (like light reflections) and outlines are handpainted.
After all had dried I transformed the shirt (according to the book "1000 ways to transform a T-shirt") into a neckholder. I could not resist to give it a cape. Wonder Woman does not really wear one but hey, what is a childhood hero without a heroic cape!!
And here it is:


a view of the cape:


from the side:


the illustration in detail:


a close up of the cape attachment:


and last but not least, a silly action shot:
