21  Anime Pillows! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: August 31, 2009 03:46:59 PM
The anime club I'm in got together about a week ago, and we made some character pillows.  Mine are from Hetalia Axis Powers.  Thanks to my friend Jen for letting me use her camera, since mine stinks.

Side one- Germany and Italy & Germany

other side: Germany and the Allies

My entry: A half finished wallet!  If I finish this it will be for my FIL, who works in wine, hence the grapes.  Seriously, I have no excuse for not being done with this.  Apparently I have more important things to do, like hit "refresh" on my e-mail, organize my sock drawer, or check out manga from the library!

23  Two skirts I've made in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: April 08, 2009 11:49:04 AM
This one is a half circle with an elastic waist.  It started out with a zipper, but was too big, so I put in elastic instead, which I like better anyway.

The next one is a tiered eyelet skirt.  I lined it and sewed it inside out covering the seam allowances with trim.  Regular seams bug my skin, so this was a good way to avoid that.

Detail of the eyelet, since it doesn't show well on the big piture

Comments, questions, criticism welcome.

24  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)

25  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!

27  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

30  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.
