2  Little Bird Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Atrapos on: April 24, 2009 12:03:24 PM
I made this bag as a learning experience to make my swap partner a less sloppy bag, and I love it!

The outside:

Zippy pocket:

Other pockets:

I made it using this tutorial. The little bird embroidery pattern is from Andrea Zuill's blog.

Constructive criticism is much appreciated! This was my first time ever sewing from a pattern.

3  Okami Stamp in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Atrapos on: July 22, 2008 01:32:05 PM
Last night I got the itch to carve something, and rummaged through my video game collection looking for a nice image to use. The first thing that jumped out at me was the Okami box! Okami's a great RPG/Puzzle/Adventure game (kinda like the Zelda series) and has the most gorgeous artwork in any game I've seen. It's entirely done in Japanese brushstroke style!

Here's the stamp I made:

I think the brushstroke style of the original art worked well for stamp carving!

4  Warcraft Stamp (For the Horde!) in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by Atrapos on: July 21, 2008 09:32:23 PM
I'm an avid gamer and absolutely adore the warcraft series, or any blizzard game really (warcraft 2 and diablo 2 were two of the first games I ever played seriously), so what better image to learn to carve stamps with than the horde crest?

It's a little messy (it's only my second stamp ever), but I think it came out pretty good! Though I definitely don't recommend the material. I carved my first stamp out of mastercarve and it was a dream to work with. For this stamp I used super cheap Soft Kut from Dick Blick. I definitely got what I paid for, it was way to rubbery and wouldn't cut properly! For tools I used a Speedball #1 gouge, an xacto knife, and a speedball U gouge.

I hope y'all enjoy it!

5  Renaissance Faire Peasant Dress in Costumes: Completed Projects by Atrapos on: May 13, 2008 07:32:29 PM
My renaissance faire costume (and the first dress I sewed myself!)

Showing dress/kirtle

Wheee, swooshy skirt!

In action at the faire

I did a loooot of research for this dress (I'm into that whole nerdy historical accuracy thing). The dress is loosely based on various Italian working women portraits as shown in Vincenzo Campi paintings. Now if only my execution was better >.>

If anyone else is interested in Elizabethan clothing, the Elizabethan Costuming Page is an incredible resource! Without it I would have never been able to make this dress Cheesy

Fantastic tutorial ^^ I made my own from it!



I decided to leave the top and bottom edges level, otherwise I followed the tutorial exactly. Great instructions! I've never made pseudo-victorian style corsets before (my fair share of Elizabethan ones though, gogo Renaissance Faires) and I think it came out pretty good Smiley

For the boning I used some plastic cable ties I had lying around from my last corset endeavor, and boned it all the way around.
