11  Dora, nintendo creatures, felix the cat birthday present in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by skuldintape on: February 02, 2009 05:21:19 AM
First of all, I DID NOT DO THIS. A friend of mine drew this for me for my birthday, and I just had to share it. Basically, I love ALL the things in the picture (I have an awful lot of Dora the Explorer merchandise for a 20 year old woman), so when this arrived in the post, it was the nicest suprise ever! It was sketched in pencil and done over with a regular black pen. The pride of my mantlepiece.

12  Smashing Pumpkins t-shirt +curtains ---> dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by skuldintape on: February 02, 2009 05:18:26 AM
yay! This weekend I was finally able to pull some sewing time out of a sea of deadlines, and here's the result. Combination of a big Smashing Pumpkins t-shirt kindly donated by my boyfriend, and some awesome blue tartan curtains. I was gonna sew the straps on at the back but I liked how it looked as a halterneck. I left the straps nice and long so I could sew them on as straps later if I wanted.

Excuse my silly face, was laughing at something stoopid. Also the pictures came out kinda grainy.......

13  science ball dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by skuldintape on: November 10, 2008 01:58:14 AM
Back from her travels, my friend gave me a birthday gift of me some lovely red and black material made by a Tanzanians tribe. Though only a novice sewer, I didn't want this to go to waste. So I decided to put it towards my outfit for the forthcoming Science Ball!
I kind've just made it up as I went along. A big black t-shirt was used for the waistband (I didn't realize until it was all sewed up that the t-shirt was filthy  Roll Eyes . It went a bit curious at the back, so I made a bustle, shown here attached with a safety pin (I figured my day to day wear is covered in safety pins - why should this outfit escape this treatment entirely?) With the leftover bits I made a corsage, using a tutorial I found somewhere on the net. when I refind the website I found it on, I'll edit this post with reference.
Comments/criticism appreciated!

Silly me! I didn't buy enough ribbon to do up back entirely....oh well, it stayed on me (most of the night anyway, but I think that was less to do with the dress and more to do with masses of wine consumed and crazy dancing  Smiley )

14  curtains ---> tartan skull skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by skuldintape on: October 20, 2008 12:15:25 PM
I love buying sheets and curtains in charity shops, so much cheaper than buying material in 'real' shops.
I saved up during the summer and bought myself a sewing machine. Basically teaching myself and making it up as I go along.
This skirt was one of the 1st applique type things I did with the machine, and I'm thrilled with it! Sorry for the stupid picture, my boyfriend was making me laugh.....Also sorry they're sideways.
