1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / O-Ren Ishii on: October 09, 2014 09:21:51 AM
A group of my friends decided to do a Kill Bill costume theme for a convention recently. Unfortunately I didn't get many photos, but here are a few from some friends:





And a group shot:



This was a completely new experience for me - I really had no idea about kimonos or how to wear them, but I think it turned out pretty well in the end!

Oh, and the lovely blonde in the PVC catsuit is my darling husband  Wink

A convention I went to recently had the Saturday night theme of Marvel vs DC, so I decided I needed to make myself a new dress:



And an action shot:

I made this outfit for a Vampire Ball I went to. The skirt and jacket are from the Simplicity 2172 pattern, and the corset is from the Laughing Moon Dore pattern.





And with a friend:

I finally got round to finishing my Steampunk Jacket and Skirt, using Simplicity pattern 2172 and fabric from Abakhan.

I still need to make a corset to go with it, and I'm not sure if I'll need an underskirt with it.

I intend to wear it to a Vampire Ball later this year.







5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Magazines on: May 30, 2012 01:27:25 AM
Hi everyone!

I'm looking for ideas for making things out of magazine pages. My in-laws got me a subscription to House and Home magazine at Christmas, and whilst I appreciate the sentiment, it's really not my sort of thing! But I feel bad just putting it straight in the recycling every month, and the paper feels like it's really nice quality too, so I wondered if I could make something useful from it!

So does anyone have any ideas? I would prefer practical things rather than purely art things, for example jewellery, storage boxes, things like that, and I don't want anything that would take too long since I've got plenty of other crafty things going on at the moment!

I look forward to your suggestions :-)
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Woolyphant and TigerPhil on: September 06, 2011 02:49:55 AM
I knitted the elephant for my niece and the tiger for my brother. They are both from the Knitted Wild Animals book by Sarah Keen. I'm really please with how they came out, and I'm definitely going to be knitting some more from this book.







7  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Nautical but nice - my first quilt! on: September 06, 2011 02:17:31 AM
I won a fabric pack from The Sewing Directory (http://www.thesewingdirectory.co.uk/) and decided to have a go at quilting. I had to buy some extra fabric for the borders and the back.

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright. on: March 11, 2010 06:02:30 AM
I made my brother a tiger shirt, since his nickname is "Tiger"!



It's made from some velour fabric I got from ebay, which was horrible to work with, but it came out OK in the end.





I also got some cool tiger buttons from ebay as well:


9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Party Dress on: February 24, 2010 09:28:04 AM
I made a party dress!





It's lined, with net underneath the bottom of the skirt to give it a bit of body:



Now all I need is a party to go to!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Summer dress on: February 10, 2010 08:18:14 AM
This is a summer dress I made. Now all we need is some hot weather this year so I can wear it!



This was my first concealed zip, and I'm really pleased with it. It was much easier that I thought it would be, and looks really neat.
