31  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.

Here's my new ornament, made from two gift cards and a piece of ribbon:

34  Final gift finished! in Winter Holidays by Ashling on: November 29, 2007 01:33:32 PM
I just finished this a few minutes ago.  I am finished with Christmas gift crafts, except for the secret santa that we haven't drawn names for yet at work, and the 2 pillows my coworker is paying me to make if she ever gets a chance to buy the fabric for them.

I was inspired by this thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=163046.0 but made mine pink, and minus any mettalic parts, as my SIL is allergic to everything.

And now, the picture!

I just made this, I used the red stretch velvet for the body, cardboard for the base, the head is a lid from an empty batch of glucose test strips, yellow thread for hair, and some ribbon and roses from my stash.

Here's the whole thing, I didn't make the top, pants or gloves, and it took me about an arn to put on all my makeup and do my hair.  Wink

37  Farscape costume (only part I made) in Halloween Costumes by Ashling on: October 30, 2007 07:06:10 PM
I decided to go as Chiana from Farscape, so I had to make myself a comm.  Here it is:

It's two layers of cardboard, top layer wrapped with gold wrapping paper and a hole cut out, and cardboard colored with colored pencil for the middle.  I also glued some ribbon on the back so I could pin it more easily.  It would have been easier to use paint, but I had wrapping paper, so dammit, that's what I used!

The rest of the costume I just put together with clothes I already had, black pants and a corset top, and I lacked the funds to buy knee and elbow pads, so I had to leave that off.  I'm going to wear the makeup though, hopefully they won't send me home from work.

38  extra fabric **Added Pictures** in Winter Holidays by Ashling on: October 26, 2007 08:41:34 AM
I'm making my grandmother a tablecloth, and it looks like I bought twice as much as I actually needed, so I have an extra yard and a half of fabric left.  I want to do something with it, but I'm not sure what.  She doesn't really cook for herself any more for safety reasons, so she probably wouldn't use things like pot holders.  So what would be a good thing to make from the extra?

39  Monster Bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Ashling on: October 25, 2007 01:27:55 PM
I was inspired by this tutorial http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45906.0 But I didn't really follow it, I just winged it.  I did a few things differently, I omitted the clips and sewed the strap directly to the bag, added a zipper closure, and I made the teeth on the inside extend past the flap edge.  I'm very pleased with it.  The pictures are a bit darker than the bag actually is.

40  Ceramic Christmas Coasters in Winter Holidays by Ashling on: October 24, 2007 12:48:53 PM
I made these for my MIL and her two sisters.  They were really easy to do, I used a 28 oz can to cut them all the same size, drew on the flowers, fired, glazed and fired again.  It took about a month, mostly because I could only get to the shop that fires them on Saturday.  Sorry about the cruddy pictures, someday I'll get a real digital camera!
