361  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Re: Burlesque Costume Nipple Tassles on: September 10, 2006 05:45:22 AM
I love the fabric (it's pink leopard right?) and the skull, and the star! Fantastic details! are they just fabric and stuff or is there something inside to make them umm stiffer?

I used thick black PVC, usually used for furnishings (has a felt type backing) then covered the back with pink leopard print.  The padded star at the back hides the metal loop for the tassle and to make them comfortable.  The PVC backing makes it easier to attach and clean off tit tape or glue.

I made these a while ago for a friend who is a burlesque dancer.  They are so simple to make and attach with eyelash glue or tit tape!

I used Faiths fab Altoid case tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=28484.0 and had a go at making my own, but I lined it with pink leopard print and popped in a small mirror.  For a first attempt I am quite pleased with it.

Oh wow!! My mum has lived on Altoids since giving up smoking and she gave me 8 or 9 tins to keep my crafty bits in, but this is an amazing idea!  Sorry to bump the topic, but has to say how fab it was.
365  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Rockabilly Revamp - How to (Image Heavy - 5) on: September 09, 2006 04:36:53 AM
Hi.  This is only my second post but I thought would show you the revamped stilettos I did this morning.  I found these unworn canvas stiletto shoes in a charity shop for 3, but one was more faded than the other (probably from being displayed in a window) They were pretty funky to begin with, but not really wearable without something doing to them.



I mixed black a good acrylic paint with a bit of water so the colour soaked into the canvas and so not to crack, and painted the whole of the upper of the shoe and left to dry.

I found some little red satin bows in my craft box and tiny tacked a stich throught hem so they didn't come undone, then hot fabric glued them to the back of the shoe making sure each part of the bow was secure.  I then superglued little flat backed crystals over where I had  tacked the bows.



For the front of the shoes I fancied some flying heats.  Again rummaging though my craft box, I found a whole load of little padded embellishments.  I cut the silver wings in half and hot glued them to either side of a red padded heart, then took a skull bead and dropped a spot of hot glue to keep it in position while I secured it with a few stitches.  I did the same again but added an 8 Ball bead and hot fabric glued them to front of the shoes at an angle.  Voila... Re - Vamped Rockabilly Stilettos.  How you like them Smiley













366  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boudoir Chair on: September 08, 2006 11:03:44 AM
It's my first post on this fabulous site, so I thought I would show you the little chair I made for my ongoing 'Boudoir' project.  I love our bedroom clutter free and minimalist (my hubby hides all my girl junk!) but I needed a place for all my girly things, so I commandeered the spare room as my Boudoir Smiley

Take one old chair, covered in paint and spiders found in a Garage



Sand, paint scarlet, pad the seat and cover with Alexander Henry tattoo fabric.  Add finishing touches of red trim and black satin bows and voila..............



I have another one thats going to be black and with peach leopard print Smiley
