1  Bedazzled Oxfords in Shoes: Completed Projects by charmingflaws on: February 03, 2013 01:12:03 PM
I broke out my Bedazzler! I added studs to my favorite Oxfords, only on the inside so they're really subtle. I'm really happy with the way they turned out.

2  Antique Stamp Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: February 03, 2013 01:08:15 PM
I made this necklace out of an antique stamp I bought at a flea market. It was super easy! All you need is the stamp, an eye screw and some chain.

More photos and full tutorial here: http://halfcraftstudio.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/diy-antique-stamp-necklace/

Super excited to wear it!

3  Tim Burton-inspired ballgown in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: May 02, 2011 09:41:04 PM
I made this gown for my Fibers class this semester. These photos are the documentation for the project. The ballgown is made from a vintage Gunne Sax pattern. It was the most complicated pattern I've ever used, which was actually pretty fun. I also made the hairpieces, they're mostly those weird fake plants from Michael's that I spray painted black and I hot glued clear river rocks inside the flowers and drew eyes on them. Many thanks to my roommate Deirdre for modeling. The location is Ringing Rocks Park in PA.

4  Star Wars Cake -- Yoda on Dagobah in Dessert by charmingflaws on: April 03, 2011 06:08:01 PM
I made this cake for my friend's birthday party. He's really into Star Wars. It's Yoda's house, pretty much based on the Dagobah map from Star Wars Battlefront II, because we are really that nerdy. I couldn't find a Yoda figurine so I bought a pez dispenser of his head and made the body out of candy and colored sugar.

And this is Pickles helping with the icing.

5  Fused plastic grocery bag vest in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: December 30, 2010 08:27:07 PM
Hey all!

I made this vest for my Plastics for Jewelry class this semester. It's made of fused plastic bags that I laser-cut with a lace pattern. Then I fused the pieces together with an iron.

6  Re: Decked Out for Deathly Hallows Swap Gallery in ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED by charmingflaws on: November 04, 2010 08:23:17 AM
I finally took pictures of what Interrobam (Emily) sent me! I lost my camera cord for a few days, sorry about the delay haha.

She made me this really detailed and wonderful Luna plushie. It came with three different outfits on their own little wire hangers. Every detail is cared for, there are little buckles on her shoe and her bra has a little hook and eye. I totally love it. There are three different hair options that velcro on and off, too.

She made me little felt Beedle the Bard charms, and one of a purple Voldemort face based on a cupcake I made years ago haha.

My edible present was wands that were really chocolate/vanilla covered pretzels in these really nice packages.

And she made me a wonderful hand made and hand-beaded bag that I love and will definitely be taking to the movie. It has a Moaning Myrtle stencil.

7  Headbands from Italian Bowties in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: September 13, 2010 04:27:03 PM
I made these headbands from some vintage bowties I found at a market in Rome, Italy. I did some research and I'd place the bowties as being from the 1940s or 50s.

8  Wedding Cake Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: August 14, 2010 04:12:55 PM
I made this dress out of a vintage slip I got at a thrift store. The top is stretchy lace with shoulder pads. It's kinda weird because the shoulder pads aren't sheer but the rest is, but I think it looks cool. I kept the original skirt and added seventeen layers of ruffles... was more lace than I dreamed it would take haha.

9  How to make a romper from pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: July 26, 2010 03:52:37 PM
I had a lot of fun making this romper out of some ridiculous pants I found at my thrift store. The pants are a kelly green knit and they are vintage Express. They are pleated in the front and have side pockets, and had a really pronounced taper at the ankle. They are elasticized at the back.

So I made the top part out of jersey, it's just a really basic double scoop. I sewed on the shorts just like you'd sew a skirt to the waist of a dress and I hemmed the pants into shorts. That was it! The jersey is stretchy and the pants have elastic so it just slips on! It's pretty comfy. You just have to make sure the torso of the top is long enough so the shorts don't ride up haha.

10  Have you turned that beautiful, avocado-green, vintage blender into a lamp yet? in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: July 20, 2010 05:10:51 PM

My inspiration, of course, being the subheading of the Home Sweet Home Reconstructed board. I've been wanting to do this for years. We gutted the bottom part and took out the motor and all the electric stuff is hidden inside. My dad did all the wiring, I pretty much just did the idea part haha.
