81  Re: Some of my clothes I've made.. Now with TUT for apron dress on page 4 in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jazzturtle on: July 11, 2007 07:20:33 AM
Ok now, I wear my patchy hippieness to the grocery store and everywhere.  Even though I live in a crunchy college town people still stare.  I think they're trying to tell if I'm high. Roll Eyes  LOL  I'm not.  You should sport your groovy threads more places than festivals, they're awesome! 

Yeah.. i wear them to the grocery store as well.. down here I get LOTS of crazy looks!!  I gets lots of postive comments when i wear them out to the farmers market.. the cool quilters always love them..  but yeah.... that's in carroboro.. i live in the woods.. and if you're not fully made up and ready to go to church.. people look at you like you're nuts..  that's ok though.. i am a bit nuts LOL!!

I love them that that's all that's important (oh and that they're drawstring so they are comfy.. which is the MOST important!!)  I can't imagine wearing jeans or anything tight around the house.. I mean.. come on??  shoes inside??   Grin

Here I am at the beach wearing a pair of all over cotton celestial patchies that I made a few years ago.  I rolled them up at the ankles so I didn't get soaked (though I did anyway LOL)  Lots of people looked at me funny.. and I was like WTF??  I'm at the BEACH!!
Sorry for the blurr...

Thanks for the kind comments everyone..  I love wearing my patchies.. and I used to be able to all the time.. but now that I work in a spa.. i have to stick with my black pants and grey top.. but once I get home.. my inner hippie surfaces.  I am turning 32 this sept.. and one is NEVER to old for patchies  Grin

and thanks for telling me about etsy.  I had NO idea it even existed (I'm new to craftster.. and the crafting community in general)

maybe I'll take some time away from my scrapbooking today to put up some stuff..  though I'm not sure I can tear myself away for too long.. LOL!!

I did just finish this dress this morning though.. took a bunch of scraps I had from different projects and pieced them together into a couple of panels.. and then put those into a dress.  It came out SUPER cool.. much better than I thought it would..   So never throw away your scraps.. you can always make something out of them later Smiley Smiley

Thanks for all your awesome comments.. I figure I'd post a few more shots Smiley

This is the back of the Ohm apron outfit..  I love how it's different from the back..

and you can wear just the skirt as well.. without the apron part..  you can see the seminole patchy pocket that is usually hidden under the apron

I've done a bunch of Jerry hoodies.. they are definitly the most popular.. 

These are my brother's favorite pants that I made him.. they have a silver lightening bolt applique on the back pocket..

This is my most recent dress.. a pretty zodiac celestial backless dress.. it's cool because the skirt has two pleats intoward the front, so it has a nice spin, but it's not bunchy Smiley  The sides are a couple of star fabrics patched together..  I love how it turned out.

Thanks for letting me share..  I haven't had a place to get feedback on my stuff.. and it's nice to let other people see what i've been working on Smiley

85  Sparkles and Shine.. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jazzturtle on: July 03, 2007 07:56:47 PM
I LOVE all things glitter.. so my two favorite show outfits just sparkle and shine.

I made these pants with 5x5 pieces of sequin fabric.  It was SUPER hard because I lined each patch individually (the fabric was way thin and needed lining to properlly go thru my machine)  They are lots of fun to wear!!

My favorite is an ALL OVER HOLOGRAM sparkle dress.. It's pretty crazy.. you have to wear shades to even look at me  Grin  I wore it for NYE one year and the band's lighting guy had a light on me and i spun around as the human disco ball LOL!!  It is also lined in muslin for some extra weight, since the fabric itself is so thin.
This photo is from my last Phish show..

Thanks for looking..  i haven't had anyplace to share my stuff in awhile.  It's nice to get some feedback Smiley

86  My first quilt :) in Quilting: Completed Projects by jazzturtle on: July 03, 2007 04:42:22 PM
I made a throw quilt for my boyfriend's parents for christmas.. I think I may do matching pillows this year..
Rather than using batting and having to stitch it,  I made the quilt top and then just lined the back with fleece.  It's totally warm and perfect for laying around on the couch...  and MUCH easier than using batting and having to "quilt stitch" everything..

87  Decopage coffee table, end table and trays.. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jazzturtle on: July 03, 2007 04:37:18 PM
So I've gone craft crazy in the last couple of weeks and decided to finally decopage our shitty coffee table that I have been meaning to do for the last year.  We have a bunch of silk stickypasses from past shows and with our colorful rug, I thought the colorful passes would look great on a black background... 
After what feels like a gazillion coats of clear poly it's finally done.. 

Because it turned out so well I went decopage silly!!!!
I decided to do an end table for the chair with ticket stubs...

Top of the table

Bottom shelf of the table..

I did a box with ticket stubs to hold remote controls..  or to put out of sight any sumthin sumthin..




other side


and finally I did a couple of trays.. one with my favorite Drowning Creek Studio handbills, and one with some fun stickers






All in all.. I think they turned out really well Smiley  Thanks for letting me share wit y'all.. I'm pretty stoked about them!!
