1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / my sexy face mug (img hvy) on: April 06, 2010 12:21:43 PM
Last year in ceramics we had an assignment to make a face mug, mine started as a wanna-be johnny cash then started to morph into this. Then I glazed him wayyy to much which ended up being perfect for my taste, except for the fact that he got stuck to the kiln shelf hah
on to pictures Cheesy

C&C appreciated Cheesy

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / two spring skirts on: January 07, 2010 02:15:22 PM
I made two summer skirts while watching about 8978972 hours of the secret life saved on my tv.

the first was made out of a thrifted dress that I have reconed about 4 times.

so now its this.....

bad ass jump rope for heart shirt hun? hah

I basically just cut up the old dress and made a big cylinder then gathered the top and sewed on the elastic, in the process sewing into my finger nail Sad

then I made this out of a thrifted muumuu. I did the same as the first but since the fabric had no stretch I added a top band and an exposed zipper in the back


I had a nightmare with the fabric unraveling around the zipper so i added muslin bias tape then sewed the zipper over it to reinforce it.

sorry no before pictures

C&C appreciated

Wow its been forever since I've posted but I swear I've been busy
well on to the story
I wanted a cute dress for our senor dinner dance and i made this in one day with help from my mom
I had to run to literally 4 or 5 joanns to find the fabric which i had bought over the summer from walmart.
It was cute and had parasols all over it

Sorry since this was about a month ago I dont have any pictures of just the dress, they are all action shots haha

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / tube dress on: January 23, 2009 09:31:53 AM
Yesterday I came home from school super bummed that we didnt have school the next day (today)
so i thought I'd cheer myself up buy actually starting on one of my new years resolutions
which is to make at least 5 dresses for myself that I would be completely satisfied with (the key point is that I have to be happy with them)
and well
I took off the shirt I was wearing and made it into a dress hah
sorry totally forgot to take a before picture
(actually i think before pictures jinx me)
it was just a tshirt ,pretty fitted but stretched out at the bottom
I bought the shirt for like $3 at the thrift store a long time ago
and I used a nasty black stretch shirt my mom gave me a while ago
its basically a tube with a stretchy tube attached
on to the pictures!
as a shirt

as a dress

as a shirt (with a safety pin)

i forgot to take more pictures but I have literally found like 10 different ways of wearing it
so im pretty happy with it :]
ALSO please excuse the headband hah its actually the neck of the original shirt and i thought it looked funny on my head.

they are bound with a spiral thinger
the machine that punches the holes and bound the back was so cute

10  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / bettie page dont tread on me costume on: November 02, 2008 08:24:11 AM
so last week I went to a halloween party and i didnt know that I was going until like the day before
needless to say, being the crafty person I am (not) I desided to change my then costume (gogo from killbill) to bettie page from the painting Dont Tread on Me

heres the ready to buy costume

I made the dress out of red vinyl and the slip/petticoat is black lace and tulle
no the best but in the end I'm pretty happy with the result
I also ended up ripping the dress apart like 3 times to fix the bottom
well ont to the pictures of me
unfortunately I didnt think to just get one picture of me sorry

me and my hotdog boyfriend
the only downside to my dress is that I'm extremely tiny in thr chest area so i basically walked around holding my boobs up hah but it was worth it
the bottom pictures are from Halloween I didnt get pictures of the dress from the party (and yes the dress was different at the bottom)
