11  It was 20 years ago today... Sgt Pepper taught the band to play... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Digsy LaRaspberry on: April 15, 2006 06:56:20 PM
This, Ladies and Germs, is one of my several latest creations. 'Tis a military-esque Victorian styled jacket. Made from polyester velveteen, gold buttons featuring crests (shields?) on 'em, gold bead-like things, and cord, this is one hot item. I did all of the frogging fasteners, all 12 of them, by hand. It's also suprisingly warm. And static-y. But I love it to bits. It's made with Simplicity Misses' pattern 4487, with some alterations. The most major being that I have a pretty small bust measurement (less than 34) and hourglass waist (28). Then, I modified the collar. I wanted it to stick up like a Mandarin collar, but for some reason or another it just wouldn't. Now it lies flat, and I really like how it looks even more. The smaller, rounded collar just looks more Victorian.
And without further ado...

As modeled by my lovely floor:

and now by me (in an attempt to show that the sleeves are in the mutton-leg style):

and once more with feeling!

Anywhoo, I'd love to hear feedback from you lovely Craftsters! Thanks for looking!

Many moons ago, I had my hair cut into bangs. They've technically grown out since then but I can't stand the sight of my forehead so I've taken the liberty of cutting them myself. I love having bangs that defy the laws of physics and hang in my eyes (and by coincidence, so does my boyfriend Grin).
Sorry for the wee picture...

Buuuuut it just so happens that the boyfriend has cooler hair than mine. Images upon request  Smiley. Or not, depending on what he thinks.

I was so inspired by this, I just had to make one for myself!
By the way, it's not actually warped around the sides as it's shown in the picture.

Not quite the same, but contrast is nifty.

I dug out the directions from a Girl Guides craft book that my mum has. These are adorable as well as easy...

(Only one posted so far, someone let me know it they want to see any others in the dozen or so I've made Grin)

Also, if anyone wants the instructions I could scan / re-write them and post them here on demand.

17  Beach-y Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by Digsy LaRaspberry on: October 22, 2005 11:26:26 AM
This is just a coptic-bound journal I made about a year ago...

It's held closed by the ribbon that's wrapped around it. There's also an attached ribbon bookmark with a sand dollar charm on the end. Here's a closeup...

Enjoy!  Kiss

18  Video Team t-shirt chopped up and stuck back together... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Digsy LaRaspberry on: October 22, 2005 10:44:17 AM
So last year, I and several others went to the city to be part of the Skills Canada Boat Challenge 2004. Cardboard boat challenge, did I mention that? Which involved a competition of teams of different high schools to build a boat-canoe-type-affair in a time limit, and then they would race them across an Olympic sized pool. Pretty neat, huh?
Well, I wasn't on our Boat Team. I was, however, on our Video Team. I was one of two people that directed, produced, and hosted the film that followed our Boat Team's progress. Not only that, but I got a free t-shirt!!!!!
This T-shirt was an XL men's and very comfy, but it looked ugly as hell in spite of the neat-o logo on the front. I wore it anyways and got the team to sign it. Then, it lived for a year in my closet. Undecided
Last night, I finally resized it. I had to chop off my friend's signature because it didn't fit, but Never Fear! I appliq-ed it back on the finished product!
Here it is, in all of its proud competitive glory.

The Front -

The back  - with the signatures...

Aaaaand a closeup of poor Kim's signature that I saved Grin...
("Go Opeongo Last minute!" means that Opeongo High School's Boat Team showed up at the event with absolutely no blueprint and had to wing it)

I hope these work!
Should I maybe add some navy blue lace to the hem of the sleeves?

Thanks for stopping by!!!!!
