Sorry if this has been done/suggested before, but I couldn't find anything... We could buy t-shirts and decorate them, with drawing or applique or beads or whatever. I don't know about you guys, but I could use some nice shirts for the summer. What do you think? I wouldn't be able to organize because, well, frankly I think I would be terrible at it but it would be cool if someone else could, if there's enough interest.
This is my purple jellyfish, with whom I am well pleased
Sorry for the bad pictures... I have a bad camera and shaky hands but you get the idea, right? She's got 20 thin, straight legs hanging down, and 5 of the bigger twisty ones. Actually, she didn't start out as a jellyfish... she was going to be an octopode from PepperKitty's awesome tutorial, but I got about halfway through finishing the body and my brain went "Jellyfish! Jeeeelllllyyyyfiiiish...." so I couldn't help it I'm actually really new at crocheting. I've only done bracelets and stuff before, and part of a hat, and haven't got a clue what I'm doing for the most part, but I seem to have a lot of luck just messing around until I get it right.
This is a little red guy with smaller frills, and he hasn't got any legs yet... he should be growing them tomorrow, though.
Hi everyone! I need some help ^_^;; there's a small local anime convention in January, and I want to get an artist table to sell various things I've made... but I just found out that I need a California State Seller's Permit. I looked it up and printed out the form and everything, but it confused the heck out of me! Has anyone else had to get one of these? I have a few concerns about it... first of all, I'm 17 years old. I couldn't find anything about age on the website where I found the form, but I do need a driver's license, which I should be getting very soon, and a bank account, which I can get as soon as I have a drivers license. But, do I still need to get a permit ad pay sales tax if I'm underage? And also, how long would it take to get a permit? I don't have much time left before the convention. And, this probably should have been the first question but, do you think it would even be worth it? It's a fairly small convention so I don't know how much I would be able to sell, and getting a permit and everything seems like a big hassle. Tables are only $6 per day and I think it would be a neat experience, but would it be better to wait and go to a craft fair or something?
Sorry if I'm rambling, or if my post is confusing, I'm sick and I think I took too much medicine
Well, everyone else was making adorable jumpers, so I thought I'd try it too ^_^ I didn't even know what a jumper was before seeing the ones posted on here, but now I love them! Anyways, I woke up really early today so I whipped it out in a couple hours (I'm super-productive in the mornings!) The picture is kinda bad, but check it out:
I really like how it came out The fabric is a bit darker in real life than in the picture, and the top isn't so scrunched up, but... you get the idea. I followed the little tutorial someone linked to before, but I don't remember who posted it or where I found it =/ it's pretty simple though. The only things I did differently were, I closed it on the side with a zipper and three buttons, and I put pleats on the side instead of gathering the skirt to the waist. The straps attach to the front with buttons, too, but they're kind of, umm, hidden by my chest in the picture ^_^;; oops. It's not supposed to be up so high, so usually I'm not... spilling over it like that... umm, so, yeah, tell me what you think!
Hooray, my camera is being good this time =P but the pics are bad quality anyway... I really need a new camera =/
This first skirt I made quite a while ago. It's a two-layer handkerchief skirt, with an elastic waistband. It's very light and soft and comfortable. The pink things are roses, and those white lines on it are the word "coquelicot" over and over, but I haven't got the slightest idea of what it means?
The next one is another two-layer handkerchief skirt, but this one isn't all light and floaty like the other. In fact, it's kind of tight o_O;; I LOVE this fabric!! I got it at a thrift store, but for the longest time I didn't know what to do with it. Then one day, I just started messing around and came up with this.
(I just noticed, neither of these skirts are hemmed I hate hemming! I guess it's okay though because they don't look too ragged.)
Next, one of my favourite dresses of all time ^_^ I love this fabric so much!! A good friend gave me a big bag of fabric for my birthday, and this was my favourite piece in there. I love the colours, and the pattern is really neat... sometimes I just space off staring at it for a while. I made the little black belt too.
Hi everyone! I'm a newbie, but I've been lurking for ages. And using your tutorials =P thanks guys! Anyways, these are a couple of dresses I have made. The pictures are bad quality, but I hope you can see them okay =/
The first is a gothic lolita dress, from the tutorial by Lamby.
I look so serious o_O;; I really like this dress, it's all twirly ^_^ the fabric is great, it's lime green paisley. I got it at a thrift store for $1.
Next is an apron-type dress. I just finished it this morning =D
I have wanted a dress like this for a long time, and my friend has a really neat one that she let me borrow to copy. Here is the back:
Ignore my weird tan lines o_O;; that gray string hanging down in the back is the ties for the back of the skirt. It looks weird though, so I might take it out and just put in elastic instead. I don't have a picture of it, but I put in the built-in bra part of an old camisole so I've got some support. It took a few tries to make it looks alright, but I'm glad I put it in because it's really comfortable and I don't have to have bra straps going across my back.
