11  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / The Living End on: December 18, 2012 07:52:27 PM
Long time no post. I used to make lots of cross stitch projects of bands and get them autographed. Have also had bands ask me to make ones for them, but unfortunetly in 2010 I was diagnosed with an eye disease that can cause blindness, lost alot of my vision, and now after a lot of treatmeant have some vision back. I started making one of the band The Living End in 09, then had to stop when eye disease kicked in.
 They're my favourite band and they just did a tour around Australia, where they played each of their albums over 7 nights, in each capital city. It gave me the urge to finish the project, and I actually finished stitching it sitting outside the backstage door. Was invited backstage to get it autographed and hang out with the guys.

This is the original drawing, it was from their 2003 street team tees.

This is another The Living End stitching I made in 06.

Thanks for looking!

Gorgeous! I'm making a Snow White costume at the moment. Gotta love classic Disney princesses!
Did you use one of the licensed patterns or just wing it?

Thank you =)

Amazing and beautiful!
I've been looking at doing a 3 week corsetry course and will repeat to myself "It can be done!"
Yes, it can be done ^^
I learned to sew  corsets from online tutorials and practice, but a 3 week course sounds fun!

I love making medieval gowns, so some corsetry skills could help making more beautiful ones!
NIDA ( National Institue of Dramatic Arts) in Sydney, have short courses anyone over the age of 16 can do, on Corsetry and Essential Costume Skills, I plan to be able to do one day!

This account is shared by Jessii, Shaun and Liz.
Shaun is one of the rare boys who sews awesomely, we all go to an annual Medieval Fayre, and he made the wench outfit Liz wore. He also made the hood of his costume.
