1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / accidently steampunk... on: June 15, 2009 01:43:05 AM
I ended up with this:

when aiming for this:

I know where I messed up. and I can see now where I could have simplified the pattern I drafted.

- elongate the skirt area, that's why I had to add the rufflage, way too short
- instead of have 4 pieces for the top, I can just have two. kind of fond of the 4 piece design I drew out though
-do a box ruffle at each joint (instead of many regular ruffles that made the fabric bunch)

all in all, not exactly what I hoped for, but neat nonetheless.

what do you think?
2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / My second Cthulhu Plushie on: May 21, 2009 06:02:07 PM
Got bored watching I am Bruce last night... alright, it was put on halfway through the project... so boo hoo... poor Bruce got ignored again last night. But I got another Cthulhu plushie done in record time. 4 hours. My boyfriend took my first one... so a replacement was in order.

thanks for looking!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plaid garter belt on: May 15, 2009 06:43:37 AM
I went to the 10 cent sale at the attic monday. I was so excited to find a plaid skirt in a size that fit me... turned out they were a pair of short that didn't really fit me. So, I split the seems and crafted it into a sweet garter belt! I'm planning on making a bra to match (crosses fingers), and a corset once I find the boning.

thanks for gandering!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / long sleeved to ruffled short sleeve on: May 07, 2009 06:55:55 AM
AH yes, recons. I don't know why I've been gone so long. I've had a few pieces that I didn't want to get rid of due to their awesomeness potential. One was a cardigan about 6 sizes too big, but it was too soft.... just tooo SOFT!!!! so, I sized it down, and redid the sleeves to make em poofy how I likes em. The second one a Calvin Klein with a Parsley (yes the garnish) pattern that I found for a dollar. There was a seller on one of the craft fair video specials on threadbanger, and she cut off the sleeves and made ruffles with em... what a great idea right?

Thanks for looking!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Eeyore Hoodie and kitty hoodies on: May 06, 2009 09:14:24 PM
After I got the comments from ladyjanewriter and vickilyn666 from threadbanger about my first hood looking like Eeyore... I realized how much my roommate loved him. So I made her one! I also made my friend one that looks like Eek! the cat, and two striped one's for her son's that like Tim Burton a ton. So here's my results! The blue material is from a pair of old pajamas, and the rest of the material is either old clothing or scrap material from thrift stores.

thanks for looking you guys... I know I've been hoodie crazy.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / hounds tooth bunny hood on: May 05, 2009 06:06:16 AM
had to make myself a floppy bunny ear hood. made from some hounds tooth material I salvaged from some thrift store pants, quilting scraps, red ribbon, and some weird checkered lobster fabric that i've been holding on to.

I love my creation, and my sewing skills have totally improved!

thanks for looking!!!
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / the Monarch comes alive! on: January 09, 2009 04:33:33 AM
Here's the complimenting costume to my Dr. Girlfriend... but I have to say he stole the show for the evening. everything made from my own patterns.

Thanks for looking!

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / So many headbands! on: January 09, 2009 04:29:55 AM
These are 5 headbands I recently completed since my head felt naked. I added a bit of professionalism with some lace covering the fabric seams.

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Gold, eggshell winter cape on: December 29, 2008 11:34:57 AM
I made this for my roommate for the holidays. She was always looking at my crest fabric which had been sitting in my room for months, but I was never quite sure what to do with it. So I fashioned her a fantastic cape after seeing a Threadbangers tutorial. I moved away from the recommended clap as used matching buttons and decorative rope instead.

10  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Vahooha Monster (explicit: not safe for work) on: December 29, 2008 11:29:45 AM
This is the vagina monster I made for a friend for the holidays. He loved it, and was playing with it for hours. Glad it could bring so much entertainment. Made from an old jacket and some buttons, hand sewn. He has a screaming face, because the vagina monster is afraid of them, but whenever he looks down... there it is.
