21  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / EIFFEL TOWER costume :) on: November 19, 2007 04:49:01 PM
well, we dont delebrate halloween but I think this is the place to post a costume thread.
this is my cousin, she had a cultural week on her college, and she had to go as the eiffel tower, so she (and I) was a little in shock with that challenge... here are the results

the proud tower

action shot

nothing as love in Paris

 the black fabric was sort of stretch velvet, and seems so glam with that metalic fabric together...the idea was a strapless dress, but that was a cold day so she used the tshirt under, and the straps...I dont know, maybe was afraid of the dress were going down, I will ask her.
I loved the results, and she was so excited too, I just received this action pictures, and she says everyone was so impressed with the costume, and everyone wanted to take pictures with her, even who didnt know her Smiley so I feel happy because of it...now tell me what do you think ok?

I found this tank top that was so short for me, but I liked it, so I keep looking for some other t-shirt in the same blue, and made it longer, then I found a red t-shirt that was made with an amazing red fabric, and brough it to the creation of this:

my kids love it

and the funniest back ever

I attatched the cape with safety pins so I can take it off when I dont feel that silly
tell me what do you think ok?

27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sweet sweet purse on: September 24, 2007 09:22:12 PM
I found this stuffed candy and I tough it would be a cute purse, I was just wondering for a perfect lining when a matching t-shirt appears...so I took out the stuff and put on a zipper, and lining, a handle and here is, hope you like it

It looks so little but look all the "stuff" it would carry!!

this is the pajama's t-shirt that made the lining

this is for my cousin, she is so slim shaped, and also so sweet  Wink Though I must recognize I would like to keep it, but it looks like a real candy in my arm!!! so I am going to look for another bigger stuffed crazy object to do mine.
hope she like it! do you?
28  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / ready to travel, GOOD NEWS! GRANNY LOVES IT! on: August 31, 2007 06:05:35 PM
well, I have finished , I was wondering what to make to my mother in grannys day (three days ago) I didnt finish on time, but I think she is going to forgive me when she looks at it. I wanted to make her a purse, but she doesnt use them very often, so I changed my mind and decided to make a travel bag, I am not sure if its name is a suitcase, because she like to travel frecuently, so here it is!!!

this is my boy (stencil)

my daugther at the other side


oh! I used the mini bowling bag  tutorial, with little changes, thank you Qazicat!!
 hope she love it...SHE DOES LOVE IT!!!! .....and what do you think?
29  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / FLEA MARKET LOVER PURSE on: August 24, 2007 10:49:11 PM
OH MY GOD! finally i made something and post it, i am sooo proud of it, I have many time of no sewing because i have a little boy (1 year old) that doesn't give me any time for crafting, so if you see any crooked stitch, just be kind  Wink anyway, you can imagine what kind of work took me to complete this bag/purse/or what ever it's name is ... oh i almost forgot, i dont speak english that well...so, kind again  Grin
ok, here comes the story, i live in mexico, and theres a big fashion store called "El Palacio de Hierro" ("The Iron Palace") it has a very strong advertising where  so-glam-girls say: "Soy Totalmente Palacio" ("I am Totally Palace") it is a very known phrase over here, hurray for advertising! ... ok, that was the background. Now, i have a friend, America... actually she is my cousin, and we love to go to flea markets (the "pulga") and buy a lot of cool stuff, there is where i get t-shirts and other second hand clothes to modify and have fun with, so i made this very cute bag for her to go to the flea market, and it says: "Soy Totalmente Pulguera" which is: "I am Totally Flea-Market", i made an stencil for the shopping girl, and the letters are from iron on transfers, when i have already cutted i found that beauty polkadot lining, actually that was a  never sewn girl dress, so, let's go to the PICS

 detail of stencil and letters, this is so funny

great lining isnt it? it closes with magnetic snap, so easy to use, and i created a key holder, America ALWAYS get's them lost... ALWAYS.

AAAAHHHHH a baby pulguera comes for keeping money (not for long)..i had a little problem with that last transfer, maybe i will make another one later...probably not  Tongue

wow! it has a cell pocket too!!
and the best part (well i dont know which is the best)...

OH MY...did i really made it??

action shot, carrying her baby...
and at least the quality control:

sorry for bad english, hope you get the idea, please tell me what do you think, pleeeease...
