1  sasquatch!! in Halloween Costumes by miss misery on: November 01, 2009 06:44:30 PM
my son wanted to be sasquatch for halloween. after much swearing about having to sew 3-inch fur, here is the result:
hercules makes a cameo in this shot

i wish my photography were better

here are the feet

in his natural habitat

the costume is just a pair of pants and a pullover shirt with a detached hood. it looks more impressive made with fur.

2  basketball jersey to a-line shirt dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by miss misery on: March 30, 2009 06:29:09 PM
i've had this jersey for about 4 years and never wore it (except to games) because it went to my knees and made me look fatter than i am.  i don't need any help with that, so i used this picture as my inspiration:

the jersey was just a regular basketball jersey, like so:

and working frantically through the night with the help of my cat and beer, i came up with this:



please disregard the poor photography and the fat rolls

3  my first weaving project in Weaving: Completed Projects by miss misery on: February 18, 2009 11:58:04 AM
i made this scarf in a weaving class i took.  its a twill weave that reverses on each warp color.  i'm pretty sure its wool.

its about 60" without the fringe


i was too lazy to de-wrinkle it, but here's a close-up shot of the twill lines

and an action shot.  i was so excited i matched my makeup to the scarf colors

i used probably the world's oldest table loom to make this scarf.  the teacher questioned my choice of colors at first but everyone thought it was pretty rad when it was finished.

4  zebra knife cozy in CHALLENGE 30 ENTRIES by miss misery on: September 02, 2008 01:28:35 PM
i like to make some pretty tacky items, so i have some tacky scraps left over. i give you the butcher knife cozy.  my photograpy is terrible, but the irony is there.

the before


and the after


blurry close-up of the trim


i forgot to mention that the zebra print is actually furry, but my bad pics don't really show that.

5  empire state pigeon in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by miss misery on: July 21, 2008 11:51:52 AM
i took a photo of this pigeon seconds before another obnoxious tourist scared him away.  i think he needs a name.  any suggestions?

and then here's the ubiquitous shot of the building itself

and of the tower- i like this one, very ominous

6  2 color self portrait in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by miss misery on: July 17, 2008 04:42:01 PM
i'll begin by saying i'm not a painter, but i wish i were.  i used a photo editor to take a picture and reduce it to 2 colors, then i copied it in acrylic, light and dark violet.

here's the original photo:

the images aren't really mirrored, i had to take the finished project pic with my webcam-hence the poor quality.

7  knitted chuck taylors in Shoes: Completed Projects by miss misery on: May 26, 2008 01:23:53 PM
i posted this in knitting, but since they're also shoes, i put them here as well.
i found a pitifully ugly pair of slip-on camouflage all-stars and was inspired to help them.
unfortunately, i had to use my phone to take the pics.

9  D.B. Cooper bag in Stenciling: Completed Projects by miss misery on: April 10, 2008 11:28:23 PM
i originally posted this in the purses/bags section since i didn't see this section.
its a freezer paper stencil on cotton fabric with plain old acrylic paint

close up view


just in case you aren't familiar with D.B. Cooper, here's the wikipedia article.  Being from Oregon, I'm a big fan.

10  D.B. Cooper bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by miss misery on: March 27, 2008 07:31:36 PM
The bag itself is extremely simple, so I'll spare you pics of the inside.  It is made of medium weight cotton; the side seams are turned and stitched, the bottom seam is a french seam, and the seams that make the bottom square are Hong Kong seams.

I made the stencil from freezer paper. Man, I heart freezer paper.

The straps are made from a belt I really like but never wore.
