21  Punk Rock Prom in a pinch in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by BadWolf on: August 25, 2008 07:04:53 PM
Okay, I made this awhile ago but here goes: so I bought red and white gingham fabric and red with white polka dot fabric at Joann's. My boyfriend's band was playing two shows in two days near me and one of them was a "punk rock prom". It wasn't really a prom, it was just an excuse for kids to dress up. I used to hear about this show when I was in high school but never went. So I made a skirt real fast and wore it with a zipper up corsetty thing on top and took photos of Mike's band the whole time. Whoot!

First part/in progress:

I didn't like the length and It needed more awesomeness.


So I chopped a few inches off the bottom and added the red fabric with white polka dots and made it more ruffly in the back. The band is from a dark red tshirt that was huuuuge.

Side shot.

It's still a little big, needs to grip on my hips better but I can fix that later. People liked it and I do too.

See? They're dressed up too. Mike is the guy on the top right.

Thanks for looking  Grin

22  Boyfriend's Band's tshirt- Now featuring side panels! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BadWolf on: August 25, 2008 06:48:03 PM
Inspired by pinkypurple I decided to fix this shirt. My boyfriend's band got tshirts done and I got one, but it fit weird, so I gave it some life!  Cheesy

So here it is!

Here is a close up of the fabric I used. It was from a remnant at Joann's and I fell in love with it but had no idea what to use it for.

I love it! I have another shirt I am going to do tomorrow probably.

I'm very late posting, but family emergency +boyfriend's family emergency =madnesssssss


Awesome hair pins with beads! I've been wearing them everyday.

See that cute bear? He is full of crocheted awesomeness!

The little glass jar all the way to the left was full of the hair pins! Perfect addition to my collection.

Very soft blue scarf. I love the colors!

The lighter blue close up.

Close up of the dark side! "something something something dark side. something something something complete."

"To Thine own self be true" cross stitch in silver frame. Hamlet rocks!

She also sent me a sa-weet Halloween pillowcase! But I can't find the photo, but I will put it up later tonight. Trust me it is awesome! October can't come soon enough!

Thanks BendyBones!!

Okay, so here is what MaxParadise sent to my boyfriend, Mike.

An awesome super thick handkerchief with his band's name embroidered on it!

A cookbook! We both love this! We love to cook and grill so this is perfect!

Inside Mike's very own beer related cook book!

Beer wall art! He can't wait to put these up. He was totally getting a kick out of these. MaxParadise did an AWESOME job!

The Can!

The Bottle!

The Mug! Mike's favorite.

A little tiny spoon and cassette tape. Mike calls me his "little spoon" and well cassette tape...I'll let you figure that one out. He's already attached the spoon to his guitar so I can be at his shows even if I'm at home.

Harry Potter origami paper! From book pages! This is great! Mike is hugely into origami. On our first meeting/date he gave me a box full of origami. We both loooooove Harry Potter.

Family Guy coasters! Another huge hit!

I think that is all, I'll check later and see ifI can get a shot of Mike WITH something. Haha.

26  Bravery is a Two piece in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BadWolf on: May 18, 2008 08:43:38 PM
So I like to make little outfits to wear for my boyfriend. He gets a kick out of it, I feel good about myself and my sewing machine gets work. Everybody's happy. My first outfit I haven't posted yet, but this is my second. It started as: PANTS. Pajama pants that were awkwardly fitted. So I cut them up and made little short shorts and a little bikini top. I do not have a bikini body under any circumstances except for in front of my boyfriend, but after many many photos I have got a few I am willing to post. Because I <3 craftster. Le sigh. Now on to the photos. Excuse the stomach and skin.

PS The straps were a little too long so I tied them together behind my neck with a ribbon, which i'm kind of digging now. Oh and the vertical seams were all there already I just brought them in more.

Here is the whole thing:

The butt! Oh my gosh! Sorry, but I wanted everyone to see the little tucks I did on either side.

The side of the shorts:

The top in all it's glory. Ribbons tied on. The tops is all from the pantlegs. Mmhmmm!

The back!

And another of the back so you can see the main strap better. I know it's uneven, but meh, it works for me:

Thanks for looking!!!

Pics from the package from Frosty772!

I've been going through this. And it is mighty. Very mighty indeed.

I have been walking around in this apron for days. Why? Because of its high levels of awesome!

she also made me an awesome big blue scrapbook cookbook full of great recipes and craftiness! Alas, my room is a mess and I cannot find my box of goods, so I will post a photo later, but all you need to know for now is that it made my jaw drop.

She also included a bag bag! you know, one of those tubey bags with two openings to put plastic bags in! It's so cool! Photo later!

Um, did I forget anything? Anyway, it all rocks!

I recieved from Hotty_blond2000! Prepare for some major IMAGE CHUBBINESS!

The big picks and cards to make more are for my boyfriend, staplegunned.

Here is the envelope it came in!

A sweet flannel orange apron with a cute white print on it. I'm wearing it loosely here. I can't wait to use it!

Some sa-weet bottle caps to turn into magnets! Conviently I have magnet strip. Heeheehee.

A loooong look down at my new stripey apron with lace edging. My mom has stolen this. I still have my orange one though. Ha!

And here it is at the waist.


I'm just...so...happy!

Three cute cards!

Five awesome headbands that tie in the back, just the way I like them!

This is the fifth one. Oo la la!

She sent me 45 homemade notecards! 45!!!!

A little grey journal which is covered in tshirt material, i think. And let's look inside.

Polska! All my countries are inside.

little blurry but some hot fabric pieces to use in my projects. I think I might make another headband with the leopard print ones!

A felt needle book! Perfect! And here is why! I stepped on a f***ing thick needle last night. Like hte kind you hand sew heavy cloth with...Not pleasant at all.

Huuuuge bag! From old corduroy pants with a white sash around the loops! I think I could carry a baby in here! It's awesomely big!

And on meeee with my really messy hair.

Ooo and inside! Nice and blue!

a pillow cover from a cableknit sweater. Oooh yea. I have a duck down pillow that will fit in this.

a cuff from the sweater too!

What's this?


Ok now crane your head over and you see a lovely calendar book with a toulouse-lautrec on it!

The inside. I am impressed. I would not have had the patience to color all that and cut it and then she even drew out the calendars and put important holidays in and a list of holidays that I might want to celebrate jus tin case I need to have fun.

Shrinky dinktastic! a Swallow charm! I'm going to find a good chain for this. Cheesy

Magazine envelopes! 45 of them! to go with the 45 notecards! Ooooh yeah!

More envelopes. Mhmmm!

A cool beaded necklace with a peace sign charm. Yay! Peace!

I have been wearing this since I got it pretty much nonstop except to shower. I like it!

Who can say "spoiled"?
Cheesy I loved everything! I can't wait to show Mike (stapelgunned) his stuff!

Oh! I forgot! She also included a link to a tutorial on glass etching for us cause we want to try it aaaand a little pirates of the caribbean temporary tattoo for Mike! I'm going to put it on his chest while he is sleeping...Or not. Hehehe.

This is my second attempt at a wallet. I'm pretty happy with it.  Grin

I got the fabric from a supply swap a little while back and I really loved these two.

It's got two rows of card slots, a place to put cash, when I have cash. Haha. No closure yet though, if I put one on.
