21  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Scottish kilt outfit(s) WARNING: Image Heavy *FIRST EVER PROJECT POST!* on: April 05, 2008 04:41:40 PM
Hi! so this is my first completed project to be posted on crafster  Grin uber excited!!! so my little brother had to do an oral presentation on a country of his choice. he chose scotland and asked me to make him a kilt so he could get extra credit. despite not havening sewn anything for 4 years i agreed but took it a wee bit further and made a full out fit! flashes, tammy hat, sash & an imitation kilt! oh and a small project from the extra material Wink on to the pics!

(they hold up socks)

Tammy hat

(reaches from the top of the door all the way to the bottom)

imitation kilt

i made 5 pleats cause i didnt have enough material to do a full kilt all pleated so two to the side and three in the back.

i used snaps to hold it together

My bro in his full outfit
(isnt he handsome?)

That side project i mentioned, made from excess fabric for my puppy toby

Toby in his kilt
(hes so cute <3)

all in all im throughly happy with everything but the tammy hat cause it didnt turn out right and i never hemed the edges Sad

I did the hair dying and it turned out great, though the color is more blackish-blueish-purple and didn't use any black. The issue is my eyebrows. They didn't look okay when I tried to dye them black, so I washed it out. The eybrow pencil also failed me. Any suggestions?
my friends use mascara on their eyebros cause their brows are curly and dont retain the pencil... you could try that  Smiley

Looks beautiful!  How did you get it so light?  It's not brassy or yellow at all.  I'm impressed Smiley
Thanx i did 3 bleachings over 3 weeks, used shimmerlights shampoo and conditioner every other day and used 323# blue violet toner

i think stripes are the way to go with this room Smiley
pick up:
  • brown, blue and white striped fabric for curtains, 2 pillow cases, a table mat and a 3 foot wide runner for the foot of the bed
  • white muslim to back the curtains
  • brown or blue comforter
  • blue or brown sheets (which ever one the comforter isnt
  • blue or brown fabric (same color as comfertor
  • plywood
  • fluffy filling
  • 1 blue pillow case
  • 1 brown pillow case
  • 1 white pillow case
  • 2 blue floor or chair pillows
  • wood for shelfs
  • wood for a laundry basket cupboard
  • a wood stainer that matches the doors
  • cheap circular walmart lights with power cords and an on/off stitch near the bulb
  • fake blue and white flowers
  • brown vase

1.obviously the sheets and pilliows and the bed runner go on the bed
2. sew together the stripes and muslim to make curtains
3. cut shelves to fit over the head area of the bed and stain them. install lights in the bottom shelf.
4. cut out pieces of wood to make a cupboard big enough for plastic boxes and laundry baskets. stain them. put together and place near door.
5. make a striped table mat. put on white table. place blue floor pillows under table. put brown vase ontop of mat. fill vase with blue and white fake flowers
6. make a hangable head - cut ply wood to fit above bed and under last shelf, cover wood in filler and comforter colored fabric, nail gun fabric and filler on, make buttons with stripe fabric. sew onto head board to look uppolstered. attach just below the lowest shelf.

k, so here are my ideas:
1. make your room theme colors brown, black and turquious
2. if you can, spray paint your bed frame a nice brown or black
3. use the ribbon to tie your photos frames a string of photos (hang 2 stings of 5 pictures each to both sides of you bed, only uses 4 nails total see?)
4. paint the night stands black and drap some turquios cloths over the bamboo part
5. spray paint the foot lookers black or brown (which ever color your bed isnt)
6. renforce your dresser with some nails and paint over the nails
cover the headboard and foot board with black or brown cloth (which ever one you did not paint your bed) or if you wish use turquious

your looking at mostly buying paint and nails.

i would sugest painting the dresser fully black. cause black turquoise and brown work well in my mind but red does not. id suggest silver and turquoise for the circles
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Re: What Color Curtain For Bathroom? and Floor question! on: March 27, 2008 01:00:26 AM
first off i applaud you for taking on such a big task!
k so here are some ideas...

1. privacy!!! - i live in a tiny apartment so i know how key this is (no pun intended), i would sugest you go to home depo and get a 5 dollar chrome slide lock (like the kind in public restrooms), two 10 dollar chrome door pull handles (also like public restrooms) and attack these to your door. fill up that hole in the door with a piece of wood (painted to match and cut to fit) and use wood glue to keep it in place.

2. curtains - just get red curtains to match your accessories. if you want a patteren id sugest something classic like dots, checkers or film strips

3. floor - i would highly sugest filling in the holes with concrete. it wouldnt take much. and you could put in some cheap tile. like maybe a patteren like this:

or you could do a photo trasfer on to some of the tiles

30  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: tulle gathered skirt: need help on: March 11, 2008 09:09:15 PM
thanx guys Cheesy this helps a lot!

yes you can gather the layers together .. actually it might be easier to do  them sepeatly though .. because if you use a wide straight stitch the tulle should actually gather itself ... I hope that helps at least some
 good luck

1. Gathered separately might be more work, but it might be poofier. Also, attach it so that the fabric folds over itself to make it stand out more.
2. Don't finish the edges, this is the great thing about tulle, it doesn't ravel.
3. For 10 layers I don't really know, and it really depends how poofy you want it. If you want tight full gathers you will need more, for medium gathers you need 3x your hips plus. I really don't know how many times that skirt would take. To give you an idea, your satin skirt lining will be flared at the bottom and skinnier at the hips/waist. Take the bottom measurement, times by 3 or 4 or more. Depending on how tall you are, if you get 72" tulle you might be able to fold it in half or cut it in half and seam it. Meaning you might only need half as much fabric.
4. Straight Stitch, basting stitch.
5. Universal or lightweight needle.

thesingingllamas: say i wanted a skirt as poofy as the one in the image link i provided. approx. how much times my hip mesurement do you think i would need? and is there a special technique to gathering tulle? i know of two diffrent ways to gather on a sewing machine. how would you do it?

and violentjayne i love your work <3
