1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Resident Runway--My Cute Suit (Pic Heavy) on: September 06, 2010 01:45:19 AM
Thanks so much everyone! It took me a weekend(ish) to do it. I watching movie marathons and sewed. Smiley
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Resident Runway--My Cute Suit (Pic Heavy) on: September 05, 2010 03:05:51 PM

So, at my college we had a challenge called Resident Runway in which we were given a bag of thrift store clothing and we were to fashion an outfit. I won the challenge. Smiley And here is my creation. It's a skirt suit.

My process:
Here is the assortment of clothing:

Next I died the horrifying green shirt and awful plaid shorts black(ish):

I discovered the best way to dye! I just used a trashcan with a liner and plastic ziplock bags for gloves. Cheap and easy!

Here's the back. The skirt is high-waisted with purple/black plaid ties and inserts on the side. The inserts match the jacket fabric.

Front of the top. I used the giant green men's shirt, chopped off the collar and sleeves and edged everything in black.

I made a little tank top to go under it with a cut-out back.

And of course I had to make a cute little hat. I used craft foam sheets and lots of hot glue.

And here's a picture of me modeling it in the show.

Not only are the onesies cute, but she is too!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Onesie School Pride on: August 06, 2010 10:10:16 AM
So I'm going to take a second to gush. My best friend/high school teacher/mentor just had her first child. She's a beautiful girl named Laurel, after me. I go to school in LA at Loyola Marymount U. and I decided that baby Laurel needed some lion pride! So I whipped this up:

Onesie: .50 cents at Goodwill
Iron-on letters, red felt, red ribbon, and white ruffle were all in my craft box.

It's modeled by my good old teddy bear (interestingly named Laurel Bear).

I had to hand stitch everything because my sewing machine is in storage in California and I am not. The ruffle on the butt is crooked, so I'm probably going to have to rip it off, borrow my friend's sewing machine, and re-do. Also, I'll add an extra ruffle layer. I just couldn't wait to post it because I think it's too cute. I'm also thinking of putting a little lion patch on it if I can find one.

5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cute coupon holder on: August 01, 2010 09:39:43 PM
I decided today that I wanted to start clipping coupons! And of course I needed a cute place to put them. So, voila! My coupon holder:

I used one of those picture envelopes that you get your prints back from Walmart in as my template. Then I added stamps, ribbon, and some little flower brads. The dividers inside are just cardstock that I cut. I love it!
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: The random RESIN question thread! on: August 01, 2010 05:36:21 PM
How do you guys drill holes in resin? Do you just just a plain old drill and a teensy bit? Could that crack the resin?
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Drilling Holes in Resin on: July 31, 2010 11:42:11 PM
When drilling holes in resin do you just use a regular old drill and a weensy tiny bit? Can that crack the resin?
8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Need Ideas for My Ruined Necklace! on: July 31, 2010 11:07:16 PM
So...my boyfriend bought me a pretty little heart pendant necklace. Then I stupidly left it on the floor. And he vacuumed it up. Apparently the vacuum absolutely hates jewelry because it tried its best to destroy it. Now I'm left with a pendant but the hook part has been snapped off. I'd really love to be able to do something with it because it's a bit sentimental.

Any ideas for what I can do with the pendant. It's edges are beat up so it's a bit scratchy. Also it has some remnants of superglue on it because the boyfriend tried to fix it. I was thinking maybe resin, but I have no idea how to do it. Any great resin tutes?
