1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 8 bit Space Invader hoodie on: May 20, 2011 09:49:40 AM
Inspired by Corrine on Craftovision (she was on Threadbanger before she left it); http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRCLOLxrORk
I added the spaceship to my design Smiley The red and black material is a silky type with a Chinese flowery design on it. You can't quite see it in the photo so just take my word for it. It's an old Puma hoodie so I was trying to cover up the logo. Made it as a present for a friend ^^

The back, sort of

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Cake is a Lie Tee on: May 16, 2011 08:15:47 AM
Made this for my boyfriend as a present. Sized down a giant t-shirt to a smaller size and then screen printed the cake on. Well, not so much screen printed as sponged (very messily) but whatever Smiley And it'll fit him, it just looks mad baggy on me.
You like?

Original picture which I then traced out on bigger card.

This was inspired by https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330888.0
I made it as a present for my little brother. The ol' sewing machine was acting up so it's not the cleanest thing ever but it's still cute ^^ has a secret compartment under it's head to stash bits and bobs. Stuffed with rags. he helped cutting out the elastic from old underpants for the arms and legs Cheesy

love it!


That is ADORABLE. I wish I knew how to make one! My best friend's baby's first birthday is coming up and it's candy themed. Maybe I'll wing it and see how it goes!

This might help, it was my inspiration:

(this is the page incase you can't open the pdf

I didn't really follow the guidelines at all at all, but you might find it useful for measurements or something Smiley

Oh very nice. I love the look of the pillow.
I'm sure she will use it all of the time.

I certainly hope so! If she looks at it and thinks of home then my work is done Smiley And thank you ^_^

That looks quite scrumptious! I'd love a pillow like that. Great job! Cheesy

Ah jeez, you're making me blush.  It was quite straight forward to make, you should totally give it a go! Cheesy or else I can always make another mini version for you..

What a cool pillow. Your friend is very lucky.

Thank you  Smiley She said the same thing, it was simply lovely to hear.
wow great job!!

I appreciate your support!  Grin

I made this pillow for my friend's 18th birthday to double up as a house warming gift since she's leaving to go to Scotland for college quite soon. She is my sweety Smiley
I used pink and white fleece. I cut out the swirly shape from newspaper and then traced it onto the felt. I sewed, stuffed and then covered in gorgeous white polka dotted mesh (it was like 22 euro for 2 yards, what a rip off!).
It took a couple of hours to do, give or take.

This is the only photo I took of it since I was running out of the house in order to make it to the party on time. I match! ^.^

Thanks for looking Smiley
8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / ''My Summer Of Love'' Journal on: August 13, 2010 08:41:47 AM
Second one I've tried making Smiley It was super fun times. I messed up a tad when sticking in the pages. When you close the book the inside end pages bend in to the spine. Boo! I would advise anyone who is starting out with making journals and notebooks to use a spine, it is so much easier to get it right. The first journal I made, I used a ribbon instead and it turned out to be far too narrow and so the covers didn't sit right blah blah.
http://curiouslycrafty.wordpress.com/tutorials/ is the tutorial I used to work out making the cover. I didn't use the measurements (just folded A4 pages in half) and also learnt how to do the coptic stitch a long time ago, from somewhere else, and I can't remember where... sorry..

I made this for my friend who is leaving for America (today actually Sad ) for a year. MySummerOfLove is the name for his blog so I figured since it was for him, it was the perfect thing to call it.

Inside view of cover.


Coptic stitch all the way

I love that fabric so so much...

And lastly a blury picture from the side.

So thanks for looking Smiley All comments welcomed!

Wow, that's such an awesome idea! It looks so amazing; there's a kind of victorian feel to it but then it has an incredible modern twist. I love it, it's so original.

hmmm well other than seeing if they are sellable on amazon, the only thing i can think of is money banks you know wher eyou hollow out and glue the pages together and all that good stuff.... Good luck with your book challange im sure eventually i will be at that point too

That's actually a rather good idea. I've wanted to make something along those lines for ages now but never found any book good enough. These big ol' things will be perfect. Thanks a bunch  Smiley
