11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gold & Maroon One-Shoulder Dinosaur Dress! on: June 29, 2011 07:24:42 PM
At the beginning of the month, my university had held a "gala" for the spring to end the academic school year for the College of Arts & Sciences. It was held in The Academy of Natural Sciences, a museum in Philadelphia in the Dinosaur Exhibit Smiley The theme was "Party to Extinction" so I wanted to make a special dress for a special occasion!

I hope you can see the print on the skirt portion of the dress, but three different types of golden dinosaurs reside on there Smiley A lot of people really liked the dress, and commented on my adorable dinos Cheesy

Thanks so much for the wonderful feedback everyone Smiley <3

This is such a great present idea!  Congratulations on your sister graduating! 

Mind if I ask where you were able to find the good quality felt materials for the DS case?

Unimatrix, I am glad you like it! Honestly, I went to AC Moore to buy my felt, and doubled it up when I sewed the case so it had some padding as well as give it some aesthetic OOMF. If you are looking for felt that doesn't fray or fuzz as easily as normal craft felt, try looking in fabric stores like Joanne's or even ordering online, like on Etsy. Hope that helps you Cheesy!

Hello everyone!

Long time no post, ne? So I've been doing random crafts here & there but nothing has really hit me to be creative enough to be worth posting. Until this Smiley

My sister lovesssss Studio Ghibli films and one of her (and my) guilty pleasures is the oddity that is "My Neighbor Totor." For her Master's graduation present (for she is a smartie Cheesy) I decided to make her a DSi case because she was at the time using a beatup ziplock-like bag to carry it in!

The front is the Chu or medium sized blue Totoro with a flower & butterfly and the Japanese characters for "TOTORO!" underneath. The back has the large, Kaa or King Totoro looking all creepy, with a confused white Chibi Totoro & heart floating behind.

Pictures below! Enjoy & I appreciate any comments & criticism Cheesy

Hey everybody!  Cheesy

It's been quite a while since I posted a craft here  Smiley

Since the summer has been a bit on the quiet side for me, so I have been feeling creative once more. Sadly, I parted ways with my sewing machine after classes ended (aka my sister dragged it to storage with her)  Embarrassed

Somehow it doesn't stop me from making things I love! So I decided to handsew everything! Boy, have I learned to appreciate my sewing machine XD

1. Summer Circle Skirt:

My first official summer craft (I have just been waiting til I did something else to post XD)!!! A simple circle skirt made from a yellow fabric decorated with bumble bees and lady bugs and flowers! I added some lining that has lace sewn to the bottom of it  Grin <3 I absolutely love it! Sadly, you cannot see my hair accessory I cheekily made.

Close up of the pin I sewn! I used a bit of scrap fabric, lace, and a wooden button to make a yo-yo for my hair  Wink (OMGSH. my eye looks so creepy here!!!  Shocked )

2. Fall Pinafore:

I sewed this from some free fabric my aunt gave me randomly one day. It's a nice olive corduroy. Sorry if it looks a bit wrinkled in the photo, I didn't iron the pinafore before  Embarrassed I used a lovely tutorial I found here: http://blogs.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=blog.view&friendID=25035282&blogID=459748466 

And of course a matching headband (It's a waste of fabric not to make one  Cheesy)

Thanks for viewing! Comments & criticism are always appreciated!!!
