1  Zombie custom pony in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by fugsly on: April 15, 2009 04:01:50 PM
I have a thing for zombies - I'm not sure when it started exactly but I'm a tad obsessed Smiley  So when I started customising ponies it was obvious that zombies were going to come into it somewhere. I've done three zombie ones so far and there will probably be more in the future! This is the first and definitely the most disturbing one - the other two are cuter, I'll post them later.

And here are some photos I took whilst making it. The first thing I did was cut the leg, eye socket, mouth and a couple of other nicks for cuts. I used fimo to fill everything in and for the ribs. The mohawk was done with glue and the paint used was high quality acrylics. It was a lot of fun Cheesy

3  Bunch O paintings - img heavy in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by fugsly on: November 27, 2008 05:34:08 PM
Hi! First off I should explain that when I start a new craft I get a little obsessed with it. At the moment it's painting and as usual I've got a bit mad. These are all acrylics on stretched canvas frames. This is just some of what I've done in the last 1 - 2 months. My walls are getting pretty colourful now, lol.

The cats were for a mate of mine.

Stormtrooper!! I'm such a geek Smiley

This ones actually done with marker pens.

5  Re: Shape, Color and Texture Swap Round 2 Gallery in The Swap Gallery by fugsly on: July 22, 2008 11:17:35 AM

Looks like I'm the first to receive Smiley

My swap partner was Sezuoli and my three thingies were star, purple and soft.

I got a watch with star tiles on and a pair of red star earrings. Two paper geishas to join my little collection - good snooping there partner Smiley
A purple key fob and a - actually I'm not sure what it is but it's funky Cheesy I think it hangs from a buttonhole? Oh and I also got a really cute little fish in resin that was my original purple item that went wrong. I'm thinking of attaching a magnet to the back and sticking it on the fridge Smiley

All in all I'm very chuffed with my goodies! I hope you enjoy yours as much Smiley

6  pink, frills, cute animals - you've gone super girly!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: July 12, 2008 10:36:39 AM
Said my friend when I described my new clutch. It may be pink and have frills but I love it! It also has a gorgeous wool lining. I adore this echino print, I also got it in natural and black, hehe.

It closes with a snap fastener, has a small inside pocket for credit cards/notes and a little fabric loop thing for keys. (sorry there's no pic of the inside). I used to make them without the inside pocket and loop but they're so much handier with them added in.

(more pics in my gallery.)

7  zippy wallets, wizard of oz, animal print, horses, purple fur in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: July 06, 2008 08:38:41 AM
These are so much fun to make although I broke 3 needles and stabbed my finger in the process!! Luckily no blood got near the fabrics, yay!  I get a bit over-enthusiastic sewing as close to the zipper as possible.

They all have two pockets, one for cards/notes and a zippy pocket for cash/keys/whatever. They measure  11cm tall, 13.5cm at widest, 10.5cm at narrowest. And they nearly all close with a snap fastener. Some of them close with a button and elastic cord like to Friends of Dorothy one. There's more pics in my gallery if anyone's interested.

I've made a ton of these and I thought I'd post some here to see what you lovely people think Smiley

8  Ahoy Matey - Nautical shoulder bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: June 09, 2008 02:52:31 PM

It's lined in the same red nautical print, makes for a more interesting view for the inside Smiley I didn't include a pic of the back to save space - the red band goes all the way around so just imagine the front without a flap.

Both fabrics are cotton, the nautical print is one of those that's grown on me, I had imagined it differently and wanted to make a skirt out of it. I can still see it making a funky skirt, just not on me Smiley Luckily enough I love it as bag fabric.

Even though I've made this pattern before I managed to muck up the flap part (sewed it so it came out on the inside). Got annoyed with myself before unpicking and sewing it on again, right way this time! I always sew things to death so it took a little while to unpick. Makes the bags nice and tough though...

Any thoughts, comments or random ramblings are appreciated Smiley

9  Re: Twit Twoo pleated shoulder bag & matching pop coin purse (img heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: June 09, 2008 10:30:56 AM
Ok, finally the tutorial. This is the version without pleats (as I had the pieces waiting to be sewn). It's exactly the same pattern but shortened at the top - for pleated goodness add at least 3-4 inches to the width of the top band. You also don't need to shape the bag at the top as the pleats do it for you. If I make no sense whatsoever or your a bit lost then feel free to comment or message me Smiley

Alright then, first cut out your pieces - 4 top band, 2 outer, 2 lining and your strap. Interfacing is very important for this bag, especially on the top band so layer it on!  I like to make the top band curve down towards the middle and in the interested of the tutorial it'll be easier if I assume that's what you've gone for.  Make a nice curve at the bottom of the body pieces - they get pointier once you've sewn them so overdoing the curve isn't a bad idea.

Once the interfacing's on place a top band on a body piece, right sides touching. The curved part of the band should be facing up, the straight part at the bottom. Make sure the middle of the band is at the middle of the body or it'll look all wonky.

Once you've sewn all 4 bands onto your outer and lining pieces grab your two completed outer pieces and places them together, right side up. Match up your seams between the top and body and sew all the way around. Turn right side out. Now do the same with your lining pieces but leave a gap at the bottom (to turn the bag through) and leave inside out. I always stitch around twice and zigzag but if you can't be bothered and it's just for yourself then once should do the trick.

Now grab your outer pieces and place them inside the lining piece (right sides touching). Your outer piece should be right side out and your lining piece wrong side out. Now is the time to put your strap on (hehe, punalicious). Place the strap in between your lining and outer piece (so that it's where the right sides of the fabric are). Pin the tops of the strap in place. Now sew all the way around the edge at the top. Again I tend to stitch this part to death but if it's for yourself I'd reccommend stitching around twice. Go over the straps a few times though to make sure everything stays where it should.

Now for the fun part - pull the bag through the gap you left in the lining, try not to tear anything or pull your stitching apart. Once that's done sew up the gap in your lining (matching thread's a bonus) and put everything in place. Sometimes i sew around the top again on the outside and sometimes I don't - entirely up to you. And unless I've confused you completely you should be done! Here's my completed bag below, with added ribbon-ness and skulls.

10  Twit Twoo pleated shoulder bag - tut page 3!! (img heavy) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fugsly on: May 08, 2008 09:55:23 AM
I'm so in love with this bag I think I'll have to make one for myself. The owl fabric is brushed cotton and the lining a silky blue so both feel lovely to the touch. And there's even a matching little wallet!

I used extra extra heavy interfacing for the top band so it would keep it's form well.

It's pretty big, 18" across at the widest point. Sometimes it's good to have a nice large purse to stash all your things in (when you're terrible at cleaning out purses like me).  Let me know what you think. Smiley

Edit: Made another one! (that's the silky blue again) I'm not sure about a tutorial as I'm selling these. I've also never done a tutorial before, tend to wing things but if a lot of people are interested i'll give it a go Smiley
