1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Lady Gaga Costume (on the inappropriate side) on: November 01, 2009 07:40:29 PM
So I made my friend this really bangin' lady gaga costume that I myself would never wear and would definitely never consider letting my hypothetical daughter wear, but I'm still pretty proud of how it turned out. Especially because i put it off until the very last minute and made it in under two hours.

anyway hurr it is!

if this is too scandalous for anybody can you please tell me how to censor the image, because that is a feature of craftster ive never had any occasion to use and im not sure how it goes.

no, i didn't use a pattern, but it was pretty simple. I just sewed the zipper to two rectangles, added a double-layer fabric bottom (mstly because i had cut too enthusiastically and it would have been too small anyway), and then sewed circles onto the end.

i've discovered making bags is my new favorite thing, you don't have to fit them to anything, and the fabric is sturdy, which makes it so much easier to work with!

this one is on a duffle bag.. it's not quite as nice as my super-hot backpickle but i'm pretty partial to it.

the inspiration came from this $33 american apparel duffle:

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Crowning accomplishment of my sewing career + GIANT ZIPPER! on: February 04, 2009 05:08:54 PM
So, last year I made myself a bookbag for school. It was disproportionate, hastily made, and kind of ugly. Sadly I didn't like it enough for pictures, so you just try to picture an ugly, crap-made bag. I was discouraged, but used it for about six months before it started to fall apart. Sad Sad . Still, I liked having a bag I made, and using a retail backpack made me feel boring. 

Fate smiled on me, and my clone-bag started tearing on the bottom. Terrified of it ripping and all of my stuff falling down the stairs during passing-time rush.. I set about making BAG THE II!

The bag:



The back: (Straps read: LIZMAT and Liz Mat Sews, in a blatant tribute to MEEEE)



The Pockets:



The Big:



The Zipper:



(IT COULD EAT YOU FOR BREAKFAST!)

Oblig. Action Shoooot:




Needless to say, I'm really proud. I didn't know I could produce such a quality product.. like, I rocked my own pants off. I don't mean to seem too into myself.. but it's a really huuge accomplishment for me. (Also everyone talks about it at school, and that is what matters in life)

LOTS OF LOVE,
LIZMAT

I found out about three weeks ago that I needed to put together a portfolio for a Nat'l Portfolio Review day at MCAD, so I've spent the past 18 days or so sewing almost nonstop, to throw together something for feedback.

But I must be needy, because I want my fellow craftsters' feedback as well. Please give me any comments/criticisms for the portfolio. I'll only post pieces I haven't posted on here before, and of course any advice would be helpful (translation: tear me to pieces and make me cry, because I want to improve!)
