1  Go go, Power Rangers! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by the rainbow lemon on: November 15, 2008 08:23:33 AM
I just love little boys' shirts. <3
They have such nice graphics on them! =3

Ok now this started out as a little boys' graphic t-shirt. Nothing special.
I don't have any before pictures because I'm an idiot when it comes to before pictures. xD (I always forget!) But anyway, after taking off the neckline and sleeves, adding triangular bra-strap hiding tank straps, and pleating fabric for a skirt for the very first time...
Here is my ultra rad Power rangers shirt into dress, recon!

(Please excuse the blurry pictures + dirty mirror + bathtub background. ^^; It's the best place I can get a good picture, aaaand I'm terrible at taking pictures. )

From the side

The front

(Go, dino warriors! LOL )

From the side with my sweater (Excuse the pants!)

And... With pants!!!

If it looks like I have a muffin top- I swear it's the skirt. I bunched it up underneath my sweater! xD
I made the skirt super easy to sew onto the shirt, so if I ever want to take that off I can just seam rip the sucker, then add it back on whenever I want. ^_~ Hooray!

Detail of the skirt

(Oh no! The pleat went wonky when I took a picture of it! D= )

WOW pleating the skirt was a pain in the arse! *gasp*
I actually burned myself with the iron by accident when I was pleating. =\
Ohwell... It was worth it!!!

I'd have liked an original power rangers shirt, but hey- Dino warriors is alright when you get thrift clothes at $3 a bag!
Besides, the fabric (the one I used on the skirt) I had been hoarding away for a shirt-dress went AMAZING with the patterns on the Dino uniforms!

The red tank-straps I made out of one of my dad's old uniform shirts. It was already cut up, so... *shrugs* 'Yay fabric!' Right?

I'm sooooo happy about how this turned out! (Even though I don't normally wear dresses. But then again, maybe it's because no one sells boss dresses like this???)

Feel free to comment. =]


Extra photo, just because I got my hair cut that same day xD

Wheee~!!!! It has MANY layers. o.o I lurv eet!

2  My Mr. Tumnus and Lucy painting (img heavy) in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by the rainbow lemon on: June 21, 2008 09:59:45 AM
Alright, so I'm not much for painting myself. I'm a drawer, not a painter, so I find it difficult to work with media I can't just erase every time I make a mistake, or have to wait to dry. -_-;; Anyway, last Christmas I made/gave all my friends a watercolor painting or ink drawing except one, who I instead gave a backpack with a unicorn on it(she loves unicorns). I felt so bad for not making her something personal that I vowed I'd make her something for her graduation this year.

Unfortunately, I never got 'on the ball' until the night before last. -_-;; Her grad party is today.
So, after a night of agonizing over what I'd paint her and a day devoted
to nothing but painting, (and buying a fedora... Different story.) I give you my Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe Mr. Tumnus and Lucy painting!

Closeup of the snow-

More snow, and part of the umbrella-

She and I love the thought of Mr. Tumnus and Lucy being together. It's just so cute. So I decided that's what I'd give her. I chose paints because it was the only way I knew how to spatter the media to make it look like snow. Though I eventually added in some bigger flakes. I also chose it because I wanted to make it BIG, and I had these HUGE canvases that my grandma gave me this past winter. I really hope she likes it. I hope you all enjoyed it as well! ^^

3  What would you pay? (And other assorted questions) in Get Product and Website Opinions by the rainbow lemon on: June 13, 2008 09:50:50 AM
Over the years I had been thinking about making and selling my fleece hats online for a little extra money.
So far I've sold two hats to two very good friends of mine in person. ( I sold a black and white 'checkered' rabbit hat, and an orange kitty hat for $15 each.)
Here's some photos of my hats(mind the boxes in the background and total lack of proper presentation)-

I'd post a picture of my panda hat, but I vowed never to do earflaps again! XD Otherwise, I do bear hats aswell.

So, my main questions are 'what would YOU pay?' and 'how could I get started?'
I'm looking for all tips and suggestions having to do with prices and selling online, so please- help a newbie out? ^_^;

New questions-
'What/Who do you use for shipping your products?' and 'Should I add the price of shipping to the product when I sell it?'

4  What's that thing on your head?! (Cutesy animal hats, now with actual pictures) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by the rainbow lemon on: June 10, 2008 08:15:46 PM
This is my first post on craftster! Hooray!

I saw the most adorable hats a few years ago, only to have their cuteness points drop down 90% after looking at the prices.
After much thought, I decided to make my own about 2 years ago by altering a pattern via adding ears and such. (I can't remember the brand or number, it seems to have disappeared on me...) I'm happy that they're now picture-worthy. Here are my most recent hats:

Please tell me your thoughts on it! =]
