31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Paper Bustle on: March 25, 2009 06:28:06 PM
Well.. it's kind of clothing.

I made this bustle for my 3D class (they call it woodshop, it's kind of a lie) this semester. It has a cardboard structure and I covered it in newspaper rufffles, with a big butt bow. I just sort of stand in a cavity in the front. It had a tie that held me in but it (gasp) broke during my critique. Yeah that was fun.

32  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Tab Closure Purses! (Second added) on: March 09, 2009 08:43:32 PM
EDIT: I made another one. It came out better so I'm putting it in first. This one uses fabric from my curtains Smiley

This is my first time creating my own pattern for a bag! The fabric for this one is from a vintage table cloth. It is lined with yellow cotton. It has a front pocket and a tab and button closure that I am absolutely in love with.

33  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / Ben Franklin Bowling Pins (now in the right category) on: January 28, 2009 07:45:28 PM
This was my first project in my 3-D class last semester. We learned how to make 2-part plaster molds and how to do slip casting. I cast a Ben Franklin action figure then turned the casts into bowling pins. Then I painted each one and sewed a costume to make them into different historical figures. I made a little display with a long bowling alley as well. These made it into the Foundation Show at the end of this year!! I am very happy. The historical figures are Marie Antoinette, Pocahontas, Ivan the Terrible, Caesar, Cleopatra and Elizabeth I. Here are some pictures!

I wish I had some close ups but as these are now in storage for the show (yay!) I can't take any myself. Thoughts?
34  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Giant Inflatable Battle Axe on: January 28, 2009 07:38:05 PM
For my 3-D class last semester we made inflatables out of thick plastic and duct tape. Mine was a battle axe and two of my friends made a mace and a dagger... and we fought. Sorry there aren't great pictures of my axe.

This is the best picture I have. I couldn't really raise it up, I ended up having to stick a big dowel in it in order to hold it up.

I ended up adding pink duct tape rune-type letters and some bands around the handle to jazz it up but my teacher still hasn't postd the pictures.
35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Photographer Jewelry Part Two on: January 18, 2009 09:16:54 PM
Hey guys, these necklaces are the sequel to my earlier post of earrings made from gutted light meters. These necklaces are the back plates that show through the clear plastic on the front.

36  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Front Toggle Clasp Necklaces on: January 15, 2009 07:54:32 PM
I love making long necklaces with decorative toggle clasps in the front. I've hung vintage charms beads and whatever else I could find from the toggles so they are decorative/functional. Sadly all of this crafting has resulted in my running out of clasps Sad.

Whatcha think?

37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Photographer Earrings-- I gutted a light meter! (EDIT: second pair added!) on: January 07, 2009 05:09:04 PM
My dad let me have two of his old broken light meters. About an hour and several long scratches later I had them disassembled and I made these really cute earrings from the dials. I have enough dials to make two other pairs, to come soon!

I took pictures on one of my dad's vintage cameras Cheesy

EDIT: I made a second pair!

Whatcha think?
38  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Tasty Jumper on: January 04, 2009 01:10:53 PM
I let my sister pick the title. Apparently to her this is a Tasty Jumper.

I used this fabulous tutorial: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0

The material is a sheet I got at a yard sale. It has a very faint V pattern on it.

This is me dancing in it. Moves well, yeah?

39  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Yoke Hoodie on: January 01, 2009 07:20:12 PM
Ahh I love this so much!!

I took two big old sweatshirts from the thrift store and made a new hoodie with the grey one as the base. I used the purple one to make a yoke and the hood, and to line the pocket. I ran out of grey fabric for the pocket and used t-shirt fabric that was the same color. You can't even tell.

I used this tutorial for the yoke, it was my first and it's a little wonky. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=281534.0

Well here it is!!

40  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Twilight Key Necklace on: December 27, 2008 05:37:26 PM
The reconstructed bit of this necklace is a key I found among my dad's old hardware that says Bella on the back. Okaaaay, it says B311A but that is close enough for me. It was a little spooky because I'm in the middle of the books now. Anyway, I sauced it up a bit with some beads and vintage ribbon! I'm rather proud of this one. Tongue

How's it look?
