21  Another Rainbow Patchwork Skirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: April 08, 2009 11:42:31 AM
I loved the ones I'd seen here on craftster, and I just had to make my own.

This wasn't too hard to do, but it was time consuming.  I decided I didn't want a huge skirt, so I scaled it down so it's about a 3/4 circle.  The squares are 4'x4', I used 65 of them for the bottom tier.  I started gathering from the bottom up, purple to light purple to blue, instead of from the top down, and I think this made the gathering process much easier.  What do you think?  (As I hit "preview," a Jpop song called "Rainbows" started playing on my computer! Ha ha! Cheesy)

22  Ceramic Raku Dragons (image heavy) in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by Ashling on: March 19, 2009 07:48:32 AM
I made these a few years ago in my college art classes.

This was originally lowfired with a crackle glaze, but I didn't like the outcome, so I reglazed it with a shiny green called "dragonfly."  I like the not quite shiny, not quite grainy finish.

The next one was inspired by those ceramic cats that look down off the edge off a shelf.  It's raku fired with just the dragonfly glaze I used on the last one.

This image isn't that great, but it shows how far it goes below the ledge.

This one is fired with a glaze called "copper sand."  The spiked ball on the tail is a seperate piece, I knew it would break off in the firing anyway, so I figured I should decide where to seperate it, rather than leaving it to random chance.


back.  This shows the color best.

Finally, this was supposed to be a fountain, but I liked the copper raku glaze so much I used it anyway.  Now it's holding dried roses.

Hope you like them!

24  Top from a dress pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: March 03, 2009 06:48:39 PM
I made this from an out of print Butterick pattern, but decided that I would get more use out of a top than a dress, since the skirt was a bit too straight for my tastes.  It's a little difficult to see because it's such a dark color, but it's gathered under the bust.  Don't mind the lines, they're from the sun shining through my blinds. Cheesy

27  top from scraps in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: May 23, 2008 10:29:18 AM
I had some leftover black stretch velvet, but not quite enough to make a whole top.  No matter how I laid out the pieces, the best I could do was one sleeve short!  So I used some other scrap fabric to make the top half of the front, and made the sleeves 3/4, and I had enough.  I still haven't hemmed it.  I was thinking about using the contrasting fabric to make cuffs so the sleeves would be long enough but I might just leave it.

If anyone is interested, I used Butterick 3344 view C, but raised the neckline.  The neck isn't really lopsided, that's just how it's sitting on my dressform.

I made some ornaments with scraps of giftwrap, ribbon and pieces of a cardboard box.  The cardboard pieces are wrapped up like a normal gift.

29  Dress from 3 yards in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Ashling on: January 16, 2008 01:52:06 PM
I bought 3 yards of fabric to make a skirt, but I decided I want a dress instead.  I can't seem to find any pattern I like though.  It's polyester peachskin, so it's rather flowey, and 45 inches wide.  It's a little too, um, polyester for a summer dress, but I'm not sure if I have enough for anything appropriete for cooler weather.  Does anyone know of any dress patterns or tutorials that would look good for this fabric, that only require 3 yards or less?

I made a tree topper for my 4 ft tree.  I couldn't find anything in stores that wasn't huge, so here's what I came up with:

The star is a piece of cardboard reinforced with duct tape, and covered with wrapping paper.  The trim is leftover from the sleep mask I made my SIL, to cover the seams, and the stand is a toilet paper tube cut into a cone shape and covered with the same paper.
