Thank you so much everyone!! heh, I'll have to let my dad know how much of a hit it is. He will be comforted by the fact that all our hard work and the money he spent on art lessons for me when i was a kid have paid off! =)
WOW! thank you all sooo much for your encouraging comments! I'm so glad that you all like my work =)
To answer your question about the orange dress, the bottom part is simply three trapezoid shaped pieces that get successively bigger. Since I made that one out of scraps it was tricky to make the three large pieces. Some of them are slightly pieced together, but hopefully it just enhanced the design. heh.
So my wonderful mom bought me a new sewing machine this summer because my old one broke (which left me devastated), so I've gone sew crazy. Here are a few of the things I've made (well, one of them I made awhile ago, but I just threw it in because I like it. heh). All of these clothes are made from scratch and without a pattern. Oh, and my lovely mom also followed me all over our yard being my photographer <3. heh
The next two are things that I made out of my scraps in an attempt to downsize my giant space-eating scrap box.
This is my very first post on craftster and I am very excited about it. I've been meaning to put pictures up for so long, and now I finally am! =)
This is a coffee table my amazing and talented father helped me build last summer for my first apartment. It was my first venture into carpentry, so he helped me with the actual building. Then I painted the forest on the shelf and stained the wood. I also put a black glaze over the stain because I wanted to make the table really dark.
haha!! this is so cute! it makes me thinkt hat i should make a shirt for my mom with matching out fits for our two mini daushund (however the heck you spell it) bc she is absolutely in love with them. haha. but anyways, this is adorable, thanks for the idea!
i really like this! you did a great job. Makes me inspired to make some sort of art booklet for someone. Maybe one using song lyrics as a template sort of thing. So anyways, i really like this and am very glad i saw it. good job!
