1  Ratchet and Clank napkins in Needlework: Completed Projects by veganruthie on: December 15, 2009 05:57:58 PM
Hello! I made these Ratchet and Clank napkins for my brother for Christmas.

Here is the image I used to base my doodles on:

Thanks for looking!

2  No I didn't lose weight, I remixed this outfit! in CHALLENGE 45 ENTRIES by veganruthie on: December 01, 2009 12:19:01 PM

This is my first challenge, so I did it mostly for fun, not to win. And it was fun!

I also learned a little about pattern drafting and stuff! :-)

I pretty much only shop thrift. So it was hard going into it looking for something UGLY.

I wanted to find the typical "UGLY THRIFT STORE OUTFIT": something with gross material, unflattering, and shoulder-pads.

I see these outfits all the time at thrift stores and think, yuck!

I thought this was an excellent example of how someone who is on the curvy side (I weigh 180ish) can make bad/good clothing choices!

This is the outfit I chose. Ugly synthetic material. Check! Unflattering. Check! Shoulder-pads. Check!

(Sorry these are big and not the highest quality. I'm still learning here!)

As for changes: I disassembled the cover-up thingie and made it into a sort of shrug. I made the sleeves more cap-like and shortened it significantly. The fabric was pretty yucky synthetic so I ended up with less than I wanted due to having to make double hems to keep from fraying. I actually really like this little shrug now and will wear it over camisoles.

I thought the under dress needed some shaping, and also thought it'd be more functional if it were a tank top and a little black skirt. I put elastic in the top of the skirt to hold it up.

This would be great for going to a show or a party. My husband was frightened by the before ("Ruthie, that is *REALLY* not flattering") but thinks the after is super cute.

Also, shoulder pads make great dog toys. :-)

Thanks for looking!!!!!!!
