11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / blue sailor hoodie+black highneck jumper (img ridiculous) on: September 13, 2009 09:40:18 AM
sooooo......i made these two at the beginning of the year but forgot about them til now (its officially autumn. the pashmina's come out). the blue one is based on lydia off burdastyle, but with majah alterations (for me, anyhow, its probs all gravy for you experts) and the black one is...drum roll....my own pattern!! of which i was very pleased.

so, no 1: attempt at a high-neck; aka typical black jumper

i was very pleased with this, i based it off a hoodie i already have, tho the shoulders arent very good, i havent hemmed any of it, and generally the neck doesnt stay up. but, as you can tell, its a hit with the ferrets.

this is just for an idea of how long it is...i like long....in the length (  Roll Eyes ) and in the arms. i replaced the reflection of the camera with cake. because the look in my eyes says so.

to show how the neck stands up.....with the aid of a pashmina. i just couldnt get it to do it itself!! i added interfacing n EVERYTHING. any suggestions guys?  Huh

close up of the heart/lace, which i also made moi-meme.

no.2: blue sailor hoodie; aka jumper i made too small and had to add stuff to fit my belly in

so, i got the lydia and the hoodie part. the hoodie was WIERD, so i made it way longer and added a stripe down the middle as i love long hoods. i also lined it in dark blue, and added dark blue panels down the side of the jumper, on the cuffs and the waist. i then added 2 blue stripes in the middle, as i didnt like the v-neck. im gonna add some sailor buttons and AHOY!

eye eye cap'in! (check out the badly-sewn interfacing popping out. what a n00b)

obligatory bum-angle tea-pot shot

how the hood hangs big. i replaced my face with that of edward cullen as i am looking ROUGH today.

to show it on me. myspace!

so...there we are. i am very pleased with these two bunnies, tho also a little alarmed as i appear to have put weight on since creating them. i see more panels getting sewn... anyway i'll leave you with a cute shot of my dahlings, cos i love them and we ALL need a bit of cute in the day:

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / skirts and seam-rippers...my 2 joys this summer on: August 08, 2009 09:41:07 AM
so, its summer, its dang hot over here in france, and i desperately wanted something that wasnt big flowy linen trousers. i can never find skirts that fit my bodyshape (my own fault, im addicted to cheese) so i attempted my own:

1) my bubble skirt (i like to call it my buble skirt. like michel buble. no reason why) made from my mums old tablecloth, using this excellent tute: http://www.businessiscasual.com/2008/07/bubble-skirt-tutorial.html

and covering my cheese-hips:

2) my LBP. this skirt looks simple. and it is. but it took at least 5 or 6 attempts to get it right. im going back to the doctor to have tests done to see if my 8 fingers are in fact thumbs. but anyway, i got there in the end, and i loves it! from this wicked tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=107286.0

warning: leggings + socks = hideous.

seam-ripped so many times theres almost no skirt left. *sigh*

c+c always welcome!  Smiley
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / can't sew, will sew...2 easy but gratifying tops! on: August 08, 2009 09:30:25 AM
i am your typical wannabe sewer -> love cracking the sewing machine out; love making things; love throwing them in the corner useless, crappy and unhappy. still, the ferret has LOTS of mounds of half-made clothes to play in and steal  Smiley

however, i am pleased to reveal: 2 tops i can actually wear! get in! both made from tutes on this wonderful website, so thank you thank you thank you. i think if i had to rely solely on store-bought patterns, i would throw my machine out the window in frustration.

excuse the bad pics, i have an absent boyfriend who cannot take photos, and no big mirror. so here we go.....

tight red dress/top, made from this tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114872.0
lovely red jersey fabric from upton park market, 1 a yard AND smells of maple syrup (bonus)

baggy red dress thing, made from this tute: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=178828.0
obv with a bit of changing to it (probably unintentional  Roll Eyes )

side view, with a bit of bra. waaaaayy!!

well thanks for looking, any c+c welcome  Wink
14  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / total n00b crochets..... (*far more pics than is necessary*) on: February 18, 2009 11:42:13 AM
ok, so i have been very envious of people who can crochet for a long time. it looks cool, and you can do so much with it. so, the other day, i decided to buy a hook and some (cheap) wool.

i saw a brilliant amigurumi creature made here, and a link to a youtube tutorial, and thought "ok, start small". so i crocheted a ball, which looked awful, so i folded it into a hat for my skeletonmonkey:

well, i thought he looked so damn cool, not fair. i decided i was gonna make one for meee. so, i started crocheting a big ball, and went from there. its all single crochet, the only thing i have mastered. and i love it! here are far too many photos than is needed:

the front:

the side:

the back:

to show how long i made it - i wanted it all scrunchy at the back so it'd look like audrina from the hills (i love her. it bugs me):

Cheesy thanks for looking! maybe my next posting will include more than one crochet skill!  Cheesy
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / fluffy furry hat with ears (sposed to be a kitteh, looks more like a bear) on: January 17, 2009 08:26:22 AM
so...theres been a lot of these animal-eared hats floating around craftster at the mo....all of which have inspired me to make my own.

i've always wanted to be a cat! so why not start at the ears?

the result is less-cat, more generic-animal-eared, but i'm well happy with the outcome. not to mention i used my favourite white faux fur in the world, so i can keep both sets of ears nice and warm against the english wind.

here are the results!

modelled by my candlestick:

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / simply fascinating, dahling.......(old pun, no longer amusing) on: January 11, 2009 12:59:00 PM

i was recently made unemployed (boooo) but found that all this spare time could be used to try out new crafts (yaaaaay) so i decided to attempt.....headware.

these are my first attempts at The Fascinator. it wasnt that difficult to make, but unlike so many people on craftster, i am a first-timer-all-fingers-and-thumbs and havent mastered the Professional Finish yet. these objects also required the first usage of a gluegun....which im now obsessed with! much to the hatred of my burnt fingers! anyway, onto the headware.....

1) lacy-bow on teardrop

2) ruffled heart (love this, its very sensual in real life.....waaaow!)

3) sequinned heart....as inspired by my boobie-tassles.

the last one - i did it, then discovered this was already on craftster!! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=246780.0  i like to think it somehow inspired me through some unconsious medium....perhaps all pasty-owners think alike?

now now this is my 1st post so if ive done something wrong or something doesnt work, sorry sorry but i hope you like the headgear! so please comment away! x
