1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Cameo pins on: March 22, 2016 06:15:35 AM
I've stared messing around with buying jewelry supplies on etsy.  There are so many neat things to try!  Here are a few I made the other day:



2  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Chokers I've made on: January 20, 2016 11:43:16 AM
These were made mostly from stash material.  I did have to buy the cameo, setting, and clasps though, so maybe I'm not busting as much of my stash as I thought!

In an effort to use up some of the bits and pieces in my fabric stash, I made this over the shoulder bag.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need ideas for a neckline on: November 11, 2015 04:26:16 PM
I'm trying to take this pattern and make it into a top.  I want to do view A and cut it to a shirt length.

I'm not sure how I want to do the neckline though.  I think the stand up lace would be too itchy, but I'm not sure how I could replace it.  Leaving it plain seems like a bad idea as it would probably look weird.  The stand up collar option they include would probably look fine, but it might still bother my neck, plus I'm on the short side so it doesn't take much for stand up collars to be too tall. Thoughts?
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Valentine Print Lolita Dress on: July 16, 2015 11:20:48 AM
I finished this dress a few days ago.  I got a whole bunch of the fabric about 2 years ago (I still have 5 yards! Shocked ) and knew I wanted to make a Lolita dress with it, but it took some time for me to decide how I wanted to do it.  I also reconstructed the blouse underneath to make it fit and added the lace.

Close up of the front:

And here's the shirring on the back.  It took a little but of fussing with it, but I was able to make it so the whole bodice was lined, even with the shirring.  It still has a side zipper, it was too hard to put on with just the elastic, but it still makes it fit a whole lot better.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Valentine Print Lolita Skirt on: March 01, 2015 06:19:15 AM
I had two weeks of vacation time I needed to use up before April, but am too poor to go anywhere and my husband used up all his vacation time anyway.  So what did I do?  Stay home and make a skirt it's too cold to wear!  I used some Valentine's Day print fabric from Joann's (which is now half price!) and this tutorial for the half-elastic waistband: http://egl.livejournal.com/14270972.html

7  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / High Five Stick- How do I do this? on: February 09, 2015 07:53:50 AM
I go to an anime convention every year, and I always end up going home about the same time as when the rave starts.  There's always a huge line for it, and there's no way to avoid passing by it.  It's become a tradition for the ravers to attempt to high five everyone passing by them, which is fine, except sometimes they become belligerent when someone doesn't play along.  I have chronic pain issues in my hand and really don't want 300+ people smacking me.  Last year a guy insulted me for not high fiving him and I cursed him out.

I'd like to avoid conflicts in the future, so I've decided I want to try to make a hand on a stick, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it.  I could just stuff a glove with stuffing and put a dowel rod through it, but would that stand up to the abuse it will take being smacked around by hundreds of teenage party goers?  Any suggestions?
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Convertable Mittens on: April 17, 2014 10:23:44 AM
They're 100% baby alpaca, and so soft!  I started these last month in an attempt to make winter end before I finished.  I wore them once a few days ago though!



9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Gifts for people you don't like on: April 03, 2014 08:41:26 AM
I have a somewhat strained relationship with some of my in-laws, but I still feel somewhat obligated to give them something at Christmas time.  I found some yarn on sale and was thinking about making mittens or hats because they would be cheap, but I'm not sure I want to spend that much time on them.  I don't really have a lot of money to spend either, or I could just go the impersonal gift card route.  I'm looking at giving gifts to my husband's two grandmothers and four aunts, two of whom are married.  I've decided not to make anything for his father, as we aren't on speaking terms.

  I know I have a lot of time, but making several things will take time.   Undecided
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Knit Peasant Top on: January 17, 2014 03:34:32 PM
I started this last summer, but I've finally gotten the chance to finish it!  I ended up hand sewing a lot of it, the thin knit fabric did not get along with my sewing machine.  That made it take a whole lot longer than I anticipated.  But now it's done and I'll have a nice new shirt to wear once it gets hot again.
