1  Corset-back tee? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by crumpets on: September 25, 2010 12:59:09 AM
Hey, sorry if this is in the wrong place!
I'm wondering if it's possible to recon a t shirt and make the back be laced up/corset style? That's really unclear sorry, have a crummy doodle to confuse you some more!

If anybody gets what I'm saying, could someone tell me how to go about this?

Thanks so much!

2  The sneakiest craft fail in all the land. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by crumpets on: July 24, 2010 10:13:50 PM
-I didn't put this in stitch and botch because I plan on wearing the skirt in all it's fail-ey goodness-
So today, I set out to make a t-skirt. With a needle, thread and pair of crayola scissors in hand, I hand sewed myself a fancy tube of messy fail.
Then I put it on.
Wait, since when am I curvy, and since WHEN is my body not one straight line?

Not knowing how to do a waistband, I reached for my school headband, made from elastic. And Voila! Secret failiure!

Pictures: (be kind, this was my first time sewing)

Back: (Charlie Chaplin butt. Tee hee! Oh, and note the fail of fabric lengths)

Sneaky headband waistband!:

 Wink It's our little secret, right?

3  Bletchu McSnicklepop, the amazing faux Muppet! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by crumpets on: July 02, 2010 05:25:50 PM
I have recently become incredibly fascinated by the world of puppetry (Inspired by Jim Henson, of course), and decided to try my hand at making my very own puppet! I followed this super simple, amazingly helpful tutorial on Puppet Kaos: http://www.puppetkaos.com/2007/08/how-to-make-a-moving-mouth-puppet-with-arm-rods-mac-and-cheese/

Without further ado, I proudly introduce my very Grover like puppet, Bletchu McSnicklepop!

Of course, C&C wanted and welcome!

4  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by crumpets on: June 29, 2010 05:26:43 AM
I'm an idiot.
My mum lets me get pretty darned creative with my hair, and I had L'oreal's creme casting black cherry in before I started today's hair nightmare.

I found out someone I strongly disliked had blatantly copied my haircolour and style, so I decided to re-dye it black cherry and at the same time, put a red toner through it from when I had firetruck red hair.

Here is the very unpleasant result:

Brown up the top, black at the sides and bottom. -__________-

The moral of the story is: Never, ever dye your hair when you're angry. You'll end up screwing it up beyond belief.

5  Replicating this amazingly awesome neckline? in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Discussion and Questions by crumpets on: June 05, 2010 08:46:47 PM

This shirt is my absolute favourite shirt in the world. The fabric is perfect for where I live (Sunny Queensland!) the colour is just fantastic, its so well made, its the most perfectly fitting size Large (aren't they always too small or too huge?) and the neckline is so feminine and awesome. I pose this question to you, crafty ladies, and sorry if this sounds n00bish, but how can I make that neckline on other shirts?

6  Ferret-Tail Jeans? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by crumpets on: March 01, 2009 02:34:22 AM
I have a new crafty project in mind- Jeans with a ferret tail coming out the back, like Nao from alice nine has.
If you have no idea what i'm on about, heres a picture to kinda explain it:

like that, but i want to add the tail to a pre-exsisting pair of jeans.

how would I go about this project/washing the jeans?

would the tail have to be detactchable? how would i do that?

thanks in advance,
