1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Casualties Dress from a thrift store tee, band tee, and scrap fabric on: April 02, 2013 03:40:24 PM
it was a lot of layer but a really simple dress to make.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Comfy striped top on: April 02, 2013 03:38:39 PM
I borrowed a top just like this one (in black/grey) from my little sister. It was so comfy and cute I didnt want to give it back. I offered to buy it off her, but she couldnt part with it either. So I made a pattern using her shirt before returning it and found this black and white stretchy knit and came out with this cute new top.

I'm going to make a tutorial as I took some shots while I was working on it, I'll edit this post once its done.

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / T shirt re-vamp turned vet visit on: July 24, 2008 10:37:51 AM
I was planning on sewing yesterday after filling out some job applications, I just got a new sewing machien from my fiance. I brought a box of my sewing things over and at the bottom of the box was my pin cushion. I left the door to the room the box was located in wide open, and my fiance's loveable dalmatian Buddy

snuck into the room, dug through my box, found the pin cushion, and decided that needles must be tasty and pulled a whole bunch of them out and scattered them about the floor. I discovered this after I left the computer room after printing out some resumes. and I got all freaked out, called the vet and fiance and started driving him to the vet clinic, got lost (my first day of being a lisenced driver was certainly stressful), then called my gal pal Julia who directed me to a nearby emergency vet clinic. I finally got the news after x-rays, 5 pins in his spotted belly! so then i met up with my fiance and his parents and we drove him to a 24 hour vet clinic where he went under for 2 surgeries, 1 was a non invasive type where they use the scope to pull out the needle, but they only got 2 so they had to have another surgery to remove the other 3. So just a word of warning to all the pet owners on here, watch your critters around your crafting supplies and keep your pin cushions out of reach. I got a call from the vet early this morning and Buddy is doing well. So soon we'll have our little bundle of spots back again, i just feel so awful for not being more cautious.

Thanks for looking, more to come
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old t-shirt from high school graphic arts class + ugly pants = one awesome top on: June 02, 2008 02:34:50 PM
I drew up this design for my now fiance then boyfriend's band. I silk screened it on a bunch of tees and one of the men's XLs was silk screened crooked. About 3-4 after high school when I originally silk screened this, I decided this meant it would be a perfect canidate for brushing up on my sewing skills, since i couldnt really ruin it. So I found some matching red leopard fabric I had lying around and some red pants that made my butt look awful and created this top. I just used tops from my closet to make my own rough pattern. All things considered, Im happy with the outcome, here are this pics

9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Necklaces Tutorial-mod podge clay charms, chain, and beads on: February 10, 2008 10:09:49 AM
Ok sorry it wasnt up right away, full time work and school has got me swamped in "to do" lists. Anyway, I'll try and make this tut as clear as I can, it's a fairly simple project once you got the hang out it.

Things you will need

-printer or small cut outs from magazines, etc.
-sculptys bend and bake clay
-pasta machine or a rolling pin
-razor blade
-sharpened pencil, safety pin, or pen
-mod podge
-credit card or some sort of flat cardboard surface
-clear acrylic sealant
-jumprings, lobster claws, pliers, wire cutters, loose chain, and beads (basically have your jewelry box and tools ready)
-oven
-baking sheet and tin foil

ok first, print up some images and cut them out to a desireed shape, remember to print small, unless you want to make some serious bling.

By cupcakecult
this is a pasta machine, a rolling pin can flatten out the clay just fine, but can get lumpy, so i prefer using the pasta machine.

By cupcakecult
Warm the clay by kneading it in your hands until it's nice and soft, then run it through the machine

By cupcakecult
then lay down your pancake of clay on a baking sheet covered in tin foil (unless you have a special clay only baking sheet, then no tin foil is necessary)

By cupcakecult
take your cut out design

By cupcakecult
lay it flat on the clay like so

By cupcakecult
now use a razor blade to cut out your design

By cupcakecult
when you're done it shoudl look something like this

By cupcakecult
heart shapes, ovals, and sqaures are easy if you have a tough time cutting them out exactly. you can also use cookie cutters if you dont plan on using them on cookies ever
next, add little holes where your charm will attach to the chains of the necklace

By cupcakecult
get a nice sheet full of them made and bake as directed

By cupcakecult
once they are done baking and have cooled, it's time to mod podge your images on them.
lay down a brushfull of mod podge on the charm

By cupcakecult
lay down the paper design

By cupcakecult
then use a card to smooth out the air bubbles

By cupcakecult
now allow that to dry for a few minutes, then come back and lay a very thin coat of mod podge over it (too much and you will smear your design)
then when that first layer dries, give it more mod podge layers, and finish with a layer of clear acrylic sealant.

By cupcakecult
beware of dirty hands duyring mod podging, things like this can occur when you place down the design

By cupcakecult
then once your charms are ready, add them to lengths of chain and beads in a nifty design, if you dont know how to link chain and beads, here is a crummy paint tut using jewelry wire
purple=chain green=beads, black=jewelry wire

By cupcakecult
just make loops out of jewerly wire to attach the bead in the center to lengths of chain. twisting them off at the end will make them more sturdy.
adding rinestones like the red ones on this necklace to your completed charms adds a cute touch as well

By cupcakecult
good luck in your crafting, hope this tut helps!
