11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Curtain Revival Dress *Now With Ethical Discussion!* (IMGS) on: May 31, 2008 04:22:43 PM
Mother-of-Boyfriend had a piece of curtain she did no longer want so me and Sister-of-Boyfriend tore it in half with a vague plan to one day be Very Classy in our Similar Dresses.

 I just finished mine, it's from burdastyle's sabrina pattern, which is the only pattern you have to pay for. Even if it's a lousy 2,5 dollar it still is sort of odd considering the opensourceness of burdastyle. But let's not go there...

Without much further ado i present you my first piece of clothing from pattern, including fancy things such as interfacing and ironing:

what do you think?

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / my first crochet bag! on: May 14, 2008 09:00:11 AM
i din't know where to post this one so i posted it both in the bag category also (is that ok or will i be banned now?)

Anyheeeeew  i found a tutorial on making crochet flowers so i got completely crochetcrazy and then i found the bamboo eehm things in a thriftstore which left me with no other choice then to make a Flower Bag (:

I am sort of thinking of putting a zipper in but on the other hand nothing has fallen out yet.
i'd really like some comment on the colors!

I crocheted a bag!!!
A few weeks ago i found a tutorial on how to crochet flowers so i went completely out of control with the flower making. Later i found bamboo handles at the secondhand shop so i sort of HAD to make a bag with the flowers. My grandma has a bag that was sort of the same in my memory but probably very different in reality. Have to go see her sometime...
anyhow here's my bag, with lining that matches my jacket https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=244650.0

Made this one a few years ago, took me about a month and all the odds and ends i could find around the house (living with 8 artists in one house helped a lot).

Thanks to M. for modeling it, making it look like a hoodie only really really baked people can wear (:

Hi everyone, i'm new (:

I have been making things in general for a long time but i never ever made a jacket before because well ehm my mother said it's hard Smiley and if you look at a jacket there are So Much Pieces and then there's sleeves that are supposed to be a real pain.
Anyhow i got some fabric (read: old home-made childrens' sheet-sleepingbags) from my boyfriends' fathers' girlfiend (complicated yes), really nice and soft and i had a nice jacket i wouldn't mind having 2 of. I changed the pattern a little bit (see pictures). I made the pattern by tracing the seperate parts on baking paper (really works if you don't have pattern paper!) and after 3 days of sewing, taking out seams 3 times and a fair amount of swearing Its Finished!

Here's the original jacket:

and here are three shots of the finished new model:

It was a really nice process, i learned a lot of things like if you connect the arms upside down you can still make your jacket look nice if you hold your hands in the air (hence the taking out seams three times) , and also that the perfect way to finish something is with lining in a contrasting color, it makes everything look really neat and professional!
