1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "Camping suits" for me and my BF on: January 09, 2011 05:08:43 AM

I made these for a competition we had in our sewing club where we were supposed to make "campings suits" and overdo it a little for our summer barbeque, we won the first price! Smiley

They are made mostly out of old bedsheets, and the details are made of clothes that did not fit anymore. They are SO comfortable but may not be the most flattering pieces of clothing we ever did wear  Roll Eyes

Here they are:

They are identical except that suit has pink stripes above blue and BFs are the opposite way around.

C&C welcome!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Woolen dress for my friends daughter on: January 09, 2011 04:55:50 AM

This autumn I knitted a woolen dress for my friends daughter in a "nordic" pattern (something modern that looks a bit like traditional knitting patterns). My friend is swedish but lives in Norway so I thought it was cool to have a "nordic" dress.

Here it is: (sorry 'bout the first picture beeing blurry, it was the best of the bunch though)

C&C welcome Smiley

3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Jacket for my Mom on: April 21, 2010 01:15:45 AM

I made this jacket in woolen fleece for my mother for christmas but have'nt got around to post it until now. (sorry bout the blurry phonepics)  The pattern is from a Norwegian sewingmagazine. The decoration on the back is not homemade.

C&C welcome Smiley

4  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pc- bag from leftover yarn on: April 20, 2010 10:41:40 PM

For about half a year now I've been saving leftover yarn from my knitting projects, tying it together "makin" yarn. My friends has also kindly donated their leftovers too, so it was a pretty big ball when I started knitting last week.
Anyways, I made this pc-bag for my boyfriend out of it:

before sewn together:


This was part of a project on reus/recycling in my sewing club, it was good fun and it feels good to use some of the leftovers that are usually scrapped.

C&C welcome Smiley
5  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Test ensemble on: October 30, 2009 07:10:05 AM

 Here's my latest sewingproject and my first time ever making childrens clothing. Its an ensemble (pants and sweater) for my cousins nephew.

Its going to be a christmas present, and I have bought a fleece fabric for making the real thing, but made this "test ensemble" out of old sheets. I was supposted to keep it as a test version, but now that its finished I'm considering giving it a way anyhow. What do you think? Is the fabric to bright?

I've used a Burda pattern (9716), adding elastic band at the sleeves and legs. The sheets are in cotton.

What do you think?

C&C most welcome!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / I made two pieces of clothing today! :) on: August 30, 2009 05:44:10 AM
Today is a rainy sunday in Trondheim... Embarrassed I decided to let the curriculum rest and do some sewing instead.  Cheesy Here are the results. What do you think?

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitting-equipment- "pencil-case" for myself on: March 10, 2009 05:19:39 AM
I also made one for my self



8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Knitting-equipment- "pencil-case" for my mum on: March 10, 2009 05:13:54 AM
(I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, but I hope its okay)

As a late mothersday-present I made my mother a "pencilcase" for her knitting-equipment. Next weekend she is taking me to Copenhagen for a mother-daughterweekend som I thought I'd bring it then.

I made this out of scraps I had laying about. Her name is Nina, so I put that in the front

This is a picture of the inside.

The "stripy" part is really an elastic fabric, so that the sticks will stick Wink It is not the most beatiful thing the world ever did see, but she is a teacher so she is used to kids making her strange things Grin I know she does a lot of knitting in her breaks at work, so I think it will come in handy. The bright colours suits well for a woman working with little children.

The brown ribbon is used to tie it together when its rolled up, and I've "written" in Norwegien: To my mum, I love you.

What do you think?  Smiley
9  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Spring dress on: March 10, 2009 01:55:13 AM
I made this dress the other day. I' moderately pleased with it, I'm new to the whole sewingbusiness and still learning.

What do you think?

(pardon my silly face)

10  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Photo-manipulated stenciling (our first) + mini tutorial (pic obese) on: March 09, 2009 02:16:23 PM
So my boyfriend and I are supposed to do a lot of reading for our studies these days,and so offcourse we get very creative and start to obsess about different creative projects instead.
I have always been doing different creative projects, but my boyfriend is new to it, anyway I think he's really talented and its good fun to do something like that together.

 We've never done stenciling before neither of us, so after getting inspiration in this forum we tried to find a good way to do it, here's what we came up with:

 1. Find a photo you like for a motive. It better not be to detailed or at least not the main object.

2. Manipulate the photo with appropriate software if you want to change anything in it. (I used Jasc Photo Shop Pro)
(we have this redicoulus sayings- ingrouphumorkindathing going on with our friends about a moustache being Over someones nose instead of under it, so I moved it in the photo)

3. Manipulate the colours of the photo so that it resembles a stencile: greyscale it and then adjust the brightness and contrast until you have a black/white photo with clear lines

4. Print out and cut out either the black or the white from your print. Voila-you have a stencile. If there are "islands" in your motive, make little help-lines when your cutting it out so that it holds together- you can paint them over after you are done stenciling.

5. Apply textile-paint and you're done!

Thanks for looking! Smiley Comments and critics make my day! Smiley
