1  Re: Post Photos of Your Tattoos! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by carolyn_rawr on: February 21, 2009 07:38:02 PM
Alrighty here are my tattoos from oldest to newest. The first two I posted on the old board but they hadn't healed yet, so here are different pictures of them in their full glory.

for my 18th bday and has significance besides being pretty. It was done by Doug at Staircase in Santa Cruz, CA (surprisingly hard to get a picture of)


representing my love for sylvia plath & the bell jar on my shoulder, from "I listened to the old brag of my heart. I am. I am. I am." Also by Doug at Staircase (the letters aren't off kilter they just move around when I move my shoulder)


just done today! This is my college graduation present to myself, and the state flower of CA. I'm moving out of state for graduate school but at least I will always have this with me. It's all swollen and a little ink stained from earlier today. This one was done by Jessica at Staircase


I love so many of the pieces posted in this thread, I could hardly begin to name favorites!  Smiley

3  lined pouches with zippers (6 photos) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by carolyn_rawr on: December 09, 2008 02:41:40 PM
For a Christmas gift I made this little pouches for my friend Charlotte from this tutorial that I shrank down by 2 inches:http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=22875

Alrighty first up is a little western number

and the inside:

Next we have a white one which I embroidered using the Tattoo Alphabet pattern by Sublime Stitching. My friend Charlotte loves New Kids of the Block, mostly Joey McIntire. So in this case the J is for Joey. Um and I am not incapable of using iron on transfer patterns *cough* *cough* er it would just be a topsy turvy world if this was the case.

the inside is lavender matryoshka dolls:

Finally, I made a coaster...or candle rest, or something out of some scrap fabric (my cat darla is sneaking into the picture). I was too lazy to measure the squares and it shows, but not to lazy to use interfacing to make it sturdy. I made another lined pouch out of the poodle fabric, but do not have any pictures of it since it was sent off in the mail before I remembered.

the back side:
enjoy!

4  pink & blue t-shirt recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by carolyn_rawr on: October 06, 2008 06:38:38 PM
A few years back I bought a shapeless very inexpensive Gap dress and I didn't end up wearing it much...because the lower half made me look like I was auditioning for a hip-hop video instead of the easy cotton dress I imagined. So I finally got around to solving the problem and changing the dress into a t-shirt.


And from the same pre-curve era I had this azure ray shirt that is now wayyy to small. I took another pink shirt that was too large and made it fit better, and then hand sewed the Azure Ray logo on.

5  built by wendy - tank top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by carolyn_rawr on: October 05, 2008 02:09:00 PM
I started this tank top er well an embarassing long time ago....but originally cut it too low. I was going to find some fancy fabric to cover up the excessive show of cleavage and this so this top ended up on my "to sew" pile. Well many months later I was digging through my "to sew" pile and pulled it back out, I finished it off with some moderately sheer silk fabric and here it is at last. It is an altered built by you wendy mullins pattern 4111

6  tea party skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by carolyn_rawr on: September 24, 2008 09:27:29 AM
I think this pink wrap around skirt is just dying to go to a tea party. I do need to tweak the ties a bit to get them just right...but for now this will do. I used the skirt pattern in Sew Everything Handbook and it was easy enough.

7  revamped hoodie w/ oodles of buttons in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by carolyn_rawr on: September 14, 2008 10:46:18 AM
I did this a few years ago with a similar brown hoodie which has since passed on Sad
With the cold weather coming up I got out my stash of buttons and created a new and better one. All I did was sew buttons around the edge of the hood, this hood had a tie which I simply removed, and around the edge of the pockets. I sewed the buttons on about 5 at a time which makes it easier to make repairs in the future....which I learned the hard way from my last attempt.

Picture 1: a snapshot of some of the buttons around the hood, some are vintage from the local swapmeet, others I just bought in a bulk bag at joanns a long time ago


Picture 2: the full view


Picture 3: action shot with darla also attempting to model

8  small fruity piece in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by carolyn_rawr on: August 27, 2008 08:20:03 PM
My good friend is coming back from Novia Scotia tomorrow and rumor has it there is a present in her luggage for me, so I whipped this up really fast to decorate her new house. It only took about an hour, and all I had lying around was muslin fabric which is incredibly fragile so it was hard to stitch.

ta-dah!

9  Shhh! Sexy librarians are ahead in Sublime Stitching Embroidery by carolyn_rawr on: August 19, 2008 10:21:49 PM
As an aspiring librarian I was thrilled to see this pattern and went straight to work! This is the largest/most detailed embroidery I've ever done. Everything else I've done has been limited to er a couple of monochromatic horse shoes, but I've dreamed about greater things. It's mostly back stitch, and some wonky things I made up to fill in the lettering. Iron on patterns are not my strong point, and you might note a few slip ups. I still have to iron this out a bit more, frame it, and try and remove the pattern transfer stray markings (any tips?) but I am super happy with it and excited to share. I used the sexy librarian sublime stitching pattern, and the tattoo alphabet for the lettering. It's larger than the size of a notebook sheet of paper, but I don't have exact measurements. Also, the colors look brighter in real life, but alas I'm not a photographer.  Smiley

ooh I have just stumbled upon this thread....

I have two tattoos both of which were done by Doug at Staircase Tattoo in Santa Cruz, CA


this is my first tattoo right after I got it done, but it's two years later and the colors haven't faded too much


this is my most recent, just a few months old, and is taken from The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath... "I listened to the old brag of my heart. I am. I am. I am."

I <3 tattoos!
