21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Hogwarts school robes for the incoming class - large and small on: April 12, 2017 11:54:39 AM
I used McCalls M7229. It's a pattern for costumes for a nativity play. I bought it for the large robe because of the angel wing sleeves. I made the front open and added some width all around. But the sleeves were too tight in the armholes and I ended up remaking them. The flare at the wrist was good. Nice pointy wizard sleeves. For the small one, I used the sleeves from the large pattern (cut down of course) and modified like the large robe. Basically, I just drew a straight line from about the elbow up to a point several inches below the armpit. The robe itself has pretty straight lines for the  armhole as well.

I had to makeup the hood...took a few tries with an old bed sheet.

The body of the smaller robe was an old A-line girls dress pattern I had. Probably doesn't exist anymore, it's over 30 years old! Any A-line nightgown or dress would work.

But search the web, there are some decent robe tutorials, sort of DIY but they get the point across. I probably would have spent less time if I had just made my own pattern.

Wow, an interactive art quilt. This modern age is just astounding!
 Grin
Top is together. There may be one more interactive feature to add if I convince hubby to do the editing.

It makes me smile. Smiley

I'm 2/3rds done with the top. It's coming out different than my vision, but I like the results. Those pictures in my head always get ahead of themselves! And since no one else can see inside my head (thank goodness), reality is usually just fine! I do have quite a bit of work ahead of me, finish 1/3, add backing, quilting (still thinking on that one), embellish, and bind. OK, I'm maybe 1/3 done.  Tongue

This is the clip i got the faery wings idea/technique from. I liked the resuts, but I wasn't as careful as he was.

Created for the current Assemblage Art Swap 2, the Giant Firefly is a rare find. Found deep in haunted woods and often used by witches and other deep forest dwellers to light the night, though the intermittent flashing can be distracting. Often mistaken for UFOs, fairy lights, or ghosts by easily frightened amateur film makers.
Original thread and gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451696.0
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451997.0

Inspiration: A burnt out lightbulb from the dining room chandelier (a fairly ordinary light fixture), a cigar box reject from my DW's cigar box ukes and guitar hobby, wire, beads, and YouTube fairy wing making instructions. I printed insect wings on a transparency, then used diamond glaze to fill in the open areas, avoiding (sort of) the darker connecting bits.




I borrowed a picture from rhinoceroses! She took her out to play!

Mine arrived at it's destination. After a returned package (sent to a perfectly fine address) earlier this month, I'm relieved it arrived. Yay!

Beautiful. And the details. And I envy the rusty nails. What is wrong with me.

I love the sea horse and copper flowers.

Oh, the quilts are fun. The anchor and flags ones especially.

Challenge #1 I like starting the new year in April, nicer (a bit) weather.

Hmmm, I seem to like bright colors, but the only one I kept was the brown/tan/blue one.

    I'm Carol and the Connecticut winters are long. I don't quilt, so the fact that I have made 3-4 baby quilts, mug rugs, placemats, etc. must not count.   Wink

    Projects for 2017
    - Placemats for soon to be redecorated dining room, 2 done, 4 to go.
    - Baby quilt for new grand nephew using 10" Robert Kaufman prints.
Done. He was born 4-22 and he will get it by end of this week 'cause we get to go see him!
- Crinkly baby toy and bibs too. Done. Well one toy for the big brother.
- Mini quilt for swap - Kangaroo paper piecing, done. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=451620.0
- Mini art quilt for swap - I have no idea! Done. And mailed. Can't reveal yet.
- ODU bag for my DD out of my DS old coastie shirts. It's not a quilt, but it feels like one when I'm piecing together bits to make a bag. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=440046.0[/li][/list]

I'll add as I go.
