21  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Plague rat for EA consert on: March 23, 2012 02:58:39 PM
I'm thinking i'll go to the gig without the wings Wink am not totally sure about this one yet, but now i've atleast got one option.

22  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / curtains for a guitarist on: March 23, 2012 02:55:41 PM
so my man plays the guitar for several bands and in his free time Wink and he's also studying music. so i made him these hideous curtains made better by Urban Threads cool flaming guitar design Smiley http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=3091&category_id=6

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / three shirts on: March 23, 2012 02:32:51 PM
two of them with the same pattern of a t-shirt (i made longer sleeves).
the longest shirt is an inspirational piece - i had the worst seamstress' block ever, and couldn't make a garment to save my life. so i decided to just start cutting and sewing, no matter what would happen. so i did. and it came out OK and my block is cured!

24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fake leather pants on: March 23, 2012 02:14:55 PM
(everything i do is fake???)
my last pair of fake leather pants died horribly four or so years ago, so since then i've wanted a new pair. finally i got round doing just that. i put an extra layer of fake leather on the knees for embelishement.

25  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Fake corset (plastic boning) on: March 23, 2012 01:51:03 PM
So. I was making a costume for the Emilie Autumn consert next month. Had to get the perfect top for the costume. Here it is! I'm so glad it turned out this well Smiley I used a pattern from the Swedish Burda-magazine, but had to add 15 cm of lenght so that the corselet would cover my belly. I also took it in a few cm, so that I could put the lacing in the back. I used the Baroque Punk Rose embroidery from Urban Threads http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=8814&category_id=13.

26  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / for a pencil case on: November 09, 2011 10:36:20 AM
so yesterday i kinda got fed up with my pencil case.. actually, when i went to sit with some friends it got a lot of attention. because the case i NOW use is the old cardboard casing of an external hard drive... YES. (it was a small hard drive, so it's not a gigantic case)

i was pondering what i could do to the pencil case that i would make out of fabric.. how can i embellish it? the last one i made says "Fantabulous!".. not that again. and now i'm so much better at making embroideries, although i have no imagination (YET! it has been locked away for a while so i need to practise!)

so.. how about the text "colorig box"? the pens that need a new case are coloring soft tip pens.

here is the embroidery, i'm thinking i'd use black and pink for the final version, MAYBE. i don't know. i don't want a white pencil case... Smiley

27  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / My very first wallet. on: November 07, 2011 01:30:42 AM
- The fabric was too stretchy
- The card places are not tight enough, the cards may fall
- The coin-side is in the wrong place

- Well, this IS my first and without instructions Smiley
- It's just the right size and shape
- The ID-slot is just perfect, the plastic is clear enough so I don't have to take my ID out of the wallet too often

ohhh, and the design is, as usual, from UT: http://www.urbanthreads.com/product_details?product_id=787&category_id=6
28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / knitted hoodie with no knitting! (sooo many pics) on: November 07, 2011 01:08:28 AM
I fell in love with this fabric the second I saw it! I had to have it. It didn't cost too much, either, just something like 19,90 euros/meter. I made this a month back but just now got around to taking "action shots" Cheesy This has a huge hood and two huge pockets, one of which is embroidered with this UT design:


And yes, I do use it WITH PANTS. I just took those pics at home, where I just wear this shirt with stockings Smiley

29  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / my logo, a face and a few badges with Stitch Era (pic overdose) on: November 07, 2011 12:49:16 AM
So I made the face of this bunny with Stitch Era:

I've been loving Stitch Era, as some of you might have noticed. It's fairly easy to use when you have SOME background with using the more expencive desing programs. Using Husqvarna Viking's own program has not helped me a bit with this one, but since I had a tutorial of a program called Pulse (a less expencive version of Wilcom, only costs like 10 000 euros, when Wilcom is 15 000.. Cheesy) I can figure a lot of these things out. So I'm TOTALLY happy. Well, I will be when I figure out how to make my embroidery machine cut the threads when I want it to.

Here is my logo, it's about 40*40mm:

Since I'm an Emilie Autumn fan, I had to try digitizing this:

And I do enjoy Supernatural as well, so...

And here it is using Stitch Era:

30  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Naughty Stocking on: November 07, 2011 12:27:05 AM
Basically there is not much to show, since I made it according to this tutorialat UT: http://www.urbanthreads.com/pages?id=483

BUT if someone hasn't seen this, they might get ideas? WEELL. I'll just tell you: read the tutorial carefully if you're not used to making stockings. Over here in Finland we don't have the stocking -tradition, and so I've never even seen one in person. So when I started to make one and didn't bother to read the instructions again (I had read them like a month before) I messed up the part where the black fur and the white fur are sewn together. See, in the tutorial you make that part so that the seam goes invisibly under the white part.. And I had forgotten that! So, now I have this ugly seam right where you put your hand into the stocking... Oh, well. Live and learn. Wink
