1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My "New" Suitcase on: March 02, 2010 10:44:24 AM
For Christmas my mom gave me this old suitcase that she found at a yard sale.

but it was ugly
so i covered it with pretty fabric:

more "in-progress" shots:

the inside isnt done yet tho. it was really late, and the sewing machine was NOT getting dug out of all the mess in my room:

but it came out absolutely amazing.
i took it away with me this past weekend when i visited my best friend at college and it held everything perfectly. i love it. i have no idea why they went out of style.
finished product:

and with the scraps, i made a card wallet to put my key card and train pass in (theyre both tap- cards) but i dont have a picture right now
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / PIKACHU! sweatshirt :D on: October 29, 2009 10:21:40 PM
i havent posted anything in such a long time!
its good to be back!
this is Technically going to be my halloween costume this year at school.
but in all honesty, im going to keep wearing it afterwards.
and im really only making it now so i have an excuse to do so...
worked all day on it and its not perfect, but im quite pleased.
i used polar fleece for the yellow, and the brown is made from scraps of leather that my interior-decorator friend gave me. they were getting new stock and had no reason to keep all those little scraps that let you pick what color leather couch u want...
the front of it is just a plain yellow front, but the back:

is the main focus anyways. im really happy with how it came out.
here are the ears:

and this is a close up on the tail, cuz its my favorite part and im really quite proud of it.

its not perfect, but my arms fit in the sleeves and my head fits through the top, so im calling it a success.  Grin
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / TSA proofing my crafting on: January 31, 2008 04:56:03 PM
okay, im posting here because i am a knitter in despair...

im leaving for spain with a class trip, and my teacher just basically crapped on my day today by telling me that i cant bring ANY knitting with me on the trip.
...well she technically said "no agujas de tejer para Ud."
or something like that, it was so tramatizing ive blocked it out.
a six hour flight, and then several long road trips around spain with a fickle ipod......I NEED HELP!!

my question:
what are some other crafts i might be able to do?
no crochet hooks either, i asked.
it has to be NSA proof...and not too expensive....
but im a knitter at heart....
please help me?

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HAV-A-HANK(c) Skirt! ......yes, the logo is printed on my butt.... on: August 25, 2007 09:34:46 PM
ive been meaning to do something with a bunch on bandanas for awhile now.
but always thought they looked a little....cowboy-ish
but with the new thing being those weird shorts made of two different types of plaid....i figured id give this a shot
i bought the bandanas back a few months ago, for a swap, but i ended up using different material...
so, without further ado;

(the cat wouldnt move)
its a pretty square skirt. with just a hint of shaping so that it stays on me.

the only thing is, im short...and i sortof overestimated the length....
so i have two action shots....
normal length:

keep in mind im only 5 feet tall.....
and then the rolled up version
that i will probably make this skirt permanantly look like:

yes, also, as the title said, i did end up with a few "HAV-A-HANK(c)" logos on my butt

what do you think??

7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / The Black Parade Blanket! on: January 03, 2007 11:17:19 AM
in honor of my friend's favorite song from the new My Chemical Romance CD "The Black Parade"
i made her a blanket to keep her warm

shown here
the line is: "I'm the kind of Human Wreckage that you love!"
i free handed the words, but the dude in the corner i spent like 4 hours cutting the man out because of all the bridges, but it was worth it.

and then, in honor of the name of the song (Blood)

you cant see it that well, but its red paint, not real blood splatter. i assure you
i had some trouble on the fleece blanket.
and i was able to mess up and wash it off. so i dont know if you would have to heat set it to wash it or not, but my friend put it on her wall as to not take any chances!
nudge nudge, wink wink, know what i mean?
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / w00t!1 YoshiLand Sweatshirt for my friend on: December 02, 2006 08:09:39 AM
so, i made a yoshi sweatshirt for myself...(not pictured)
and my friend wanted one too,
so being the pushover i am, i made her one
but since id already made the green one, she wanted to be the pink yoshi from the yoshiland video game


and finally...

so, im pretty proud of it. the sweatshirt she already had, bought the maroon fabric, pillowcase for the tummy and the hood came from the inside of another sweatshirt...
cuz u love me?

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Record Purse!! on: October 14, 2006 05:18:42 AM
saw a post weeks ago about someone making a record purse (props and credit to them) and said "i must make one" to my self.
so weeks past an mmy mom wouldnt let me into her record collection
(this might have been because all her records are worth something...)
but i found some records at a yard sale and saw my oppertunity
so....this is the finished product:

it took forever to poke all the holes in the sides of it. BUT I LOVE IT
