11  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Rebel alliance waterproof Zune case (pic heavy) on: January 25, 2008 09:42:07 PM
i guess this goes in here, because it's like a purse...kinda.

anyway, i wanted to make a waterproof case for an mp3 player, and was having trouble thinking of a way to do it. then i thought maybe i could just tape a baggie around my player, and it hit me: DUCT TAPE. i don't think it's going to hurt my zune, but if you know that it will, please tell me. anyway, i made a sort of duct tape case first:

and then i decided to just glue some fleece around it to make it more attractive, and ended up adding a rebel alliance (from Star Wars) logo to the front.

because the tiny logo was hard to cut out, and i only had BIG scissors, this was as good as i could get.

with my Zune

the inside, it's "waterproof" in the sense that it has a little extra protection if rained on, it doesn't protect form actual water submersion

and again because i am so proud of myself.

the next project is to make one for the boyfriend's tiny mp3 player and put the imperial empire symbol on that.

also, i am sorry if this was someone else's idea as well, or first, i thought of it by myself and i did not mean to steal anyone's idea.

so the back story is that my friends and I love the "cereal bawks" video by group x, and one of them can do the whole thing REALLY well. we spent a weekend together and the whole theme of that weekend was the word "bawks." so I made my friend who can do the accent this patch:

i added more yellow after this and attached it to a felt back to make it a sturdy patch.

he seemed to like it, so that was good. I am no expert on embroidery or anything, i just sort of made it up as I went along. what do you think?
13  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Dark Mark Boxers on: December 17, 2007 08:05:06 PM
I image searched "dark mark" and got this image, i apologize if it is yours and i used it without permission, i did not create these for sale or for mass reproduction, they are just for me.

that said, i made these slytherin boxers for myself for a part of my Cedric Diggory costume. i know, i know, he wasn't Slytherin, but i thought it would be funny if he had a pair of slytherin boxers, like he was "borrowing" them from someone....

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Ron Weasley. WARNING DOLL NUDITY on: December 17, 2007 07:56:25 PM
This is a Ron Weasley (from harry Potter) doll i made for a friend of mine. she told me she liked Rupert Grint, and i couldn't resist. I made him a little holiday outfit, with a jingle bell clasp, and santa-esque hat.





15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / totoro scarf (pics do work) on: December 13, 2007 03:31:53 PM
i got the blue-green scarf from the thrift store, and the grey fabric was from a big fleece shawl/blanket thing, the white is just white felt. the scarf was two layers so i hand sewed everything into the top layer. it's a gift for a "secret santa" gift exchange on one of the forums i frequent. the girl i got likes studio ghibli animation. is it an appropriate gift? does it need more?

16  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Harry Potter converse on: December 13, 2007 02:18:26 PM
made with heavy influence from https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=70650.0, these were really old beat up red converse that i LOVED about 4 years ago, so i decided to turn them into mary-jane-ish flats:

they are tied with yarn because i couldn't find any black ribbon. I had to bleach the rubber because i had written random words on them, and i sewed up some of the holes:

the pictures on the toe are the first chapter chapter art from the first Harry Potter book and the date it was released, and the last chapter chapter art from the last Harry Potter Book and the day it was released. (i am a HUGE Harry Potter Nerd)

and an action shot:

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Wonky Kitty Ear Fleece Hat on: December 09, 2007 07:02:30 PM
I am going to an anime convention next month where i will be cosplaying as an obnoxious fangirl. my goal is to see how young i can pass for to make me feel better about getting older. Smiley i decided i needed a kitty ear hat to make the image, so rather than try to find the money to buy one at the holidays, i decided to make one. i went to the local swap meet and found some fleece for $4 a yard, and whipped this up really quick:

it's a little too small and kinda wonky (i think the pattern i made was a tad small) but that's ok because it really cost me all of one dollar to make. I really love it because its short, so it allows me to wear it with my hair up. I bought more fleece and am probably going to make more of these for friends and family as inexpensive gifts.
