1  Rose Petal Underbust Corset (Five dollars!) in CHALLENGE 42 ENTRIES by Mimi Melophile on: September 05, 2009 05:24:00 PM
Yeah, I know a corset has been done in a previous dollar store challenge, but it wasn't underbust! And it (as well as the placemat corset this round, which IS fabulous!!) didn't have over 260 rose petals sewn to it one by one! This is my first challenge, and hopefully y'all think I deserve some beginner's luck!

All hail my sister, the lovely model! She's a little small for the corset, but I'll take it in for her.

And the in progress pics - from one petal to 100 to 264!!

I stitched these all individually with a machine. I bought two t-shirts, one roll of tulle, one package of rose petals, and three longstem wire flowers. Petals were used as loops instead of grommets. I removed the flowers and used the stems for boning. The tulle is the lace up the back. The first t-shirt was the base onto which the petals were sown and the second for lining. I can post a tutorial later, if you guys like - right now, time for work! <3

2  Pink, Gold, and Lace - - OH MY! Pics! <3 in Shoes: Completed Projects by Mimi Melophile on: December 21, 2008 07:45:19 PM
So, I have this pair of old black tennies my voice teacher gave me. They were comfy, but not so pretty. And when I say 'pretty' I mean fun to look at. So I scrounged around my house and found paint. I turned size 10 Predictions first into THIS:

Though they basically started like this:

Just with some pink acryllic paint and some clear top coat, for wood finishing, I think. I use what I can. Cheesy After some time with black shiny fabric, lace fabric, and gold ribbon, I got THIS! Yes, I know the first pic is the right shoe, but I forgot to photograph the left one before making it fabulous.
Sorry, no 'action shots'. I wore them in the snow, which faded them. So they need touchups... But it wasn't snowing when I left the house in them. They were fine until heck froze over. Here's pics from the sides and stuff. Yes, that's my foot in the corner.

I've got pics to put a tutorial together, if anyone cares. If no one does, I'm not taking the time for it.

3  Wallet Recycled from Cassette Holder (MY FIRST POSTING EVER!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Mimi Melophile on: August 29, 2008 04:58:32 PM
Yup! My first time posting here at Craftster (I just joined the other day-ish) and I'm excited.

I've seen a lot of stuff about making wallets from cassettes, but don't the holders deserve some love? I think they do, which is why I spent all last night making this beauty. Okay, not ALL last night, but I had an insomnia attack and it felt like forever.

Anyway. Picture time! <3 They glare a bit, but that's what happens when ya photograph stuff covered in tape.

This is the front and back of my wallet. I themed it around the word "Love", in case you can't tell. I used gold wire to bind it shut, but I've discovered that the wire is unnecessary. It holds shut very well on its own.


And that's what the wallet looks like when it's open. It holds an awfully big amount of whatever. IDs or money or anything else you may want to store in it. Plus, it's about as personalized as a wallet can get, because you can use pics of yourself or family instead of magazine pics.

But you have to admit, those mag pics I used are pretty sweet. XD

So yeah. Over and out. <3
