1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Purple Jammies on: July 16, 2011 11:38:33 AM
Field's Fabrics was having their big tent event, and I picked up a lot of things, then I noticed this silk/satin material that felt so smooth and nice and I just had to get it for 1.50 a yard, plus 30% off. I had no idea what I would make out of it, when the lady who was cutting it said I could make jammies, and she directed me to the pattern and I made them. The tension on them isn't the best, so you will see bunched at the seams, but that doesn't totally bother them as I wore them over another pair and they seemed just find. So yeah look at the pictures below.



2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Fabric to Pink Skirt to Petticoat on: June 24, 2011 03:23:13 PM
Okay, so I have a cosplay I was working on, and I had to give some poof to the dress, so I made a petticoat for it. The petticoat was just fabric, I made a pink skirt out of fabric I had bought, and then added 3 layers of tulle to get it to poof. So yeah it went from fabric to a skirt to a petticoat, and it was an interesting day. Seeing as tomorrow is when I debut the cosplay, which I have a picture of the dress that I got, I had to kick my butt in gear to do this sewing. Yay procrastinators unite!

So yeah, I may have made it specifically for a cosplay, but it can really be worn under any dress.

This headband took me two days to do, mostly because i started late last night and picked it up late this evening. It took a total of about 2-3 hours, because I am not a good sewing person. Sewer looks weird to me sorry. But yes, I have a picture of the top, the bottom, and some detail, and an action shot.

I made this because my friend bought one for herself, and we thought the sewing on it was really amateur, finding that they didn't sew in the detail ribbon at all, just glued it, and yeah. I wanted to tackle this project before I figured on if I would sell them or not. I know its not the most perfect headband/ head accessory thing, but I got time and practice does make perfect.

Anyways. On to the pictures

I never really thought of passing it down to my kid. I knew i would never get rid of it, and to this day it is proudly displayed on my dresser. I'm only 18, so i have no thoughts of kids at my age, but in the future I think I would love to give it to my kid and a few other things I've made.

thank you pixi. I actually have tons of barbie furniture set patterns that I haven't even worked yet, including a classroom barbie set.

@teekay: The doll house was really my favorite project and I loved how it came out when it was my first big project in plastic canvas. Now that I am a bit more experienced I look at it and just am amazed at how far I came. I don't even want to think of making a new one to replace it.

Thank you. I had fun making all of those things.

Okay guys be amazed! Note its not a barbie doll house, its a sock doll house, although it i change up the dimensions a bit it could work as a barbie doll house. I made this at age 15, so I was in school and I had homework so I used whatever spare time I had to make it. And you can easily see where the mistakes are but I am still very proud of it. Three different pictures. One where its all folded up and you can take it anywhere, 2 is it all laid out with the tiny yard, and 3 is it opened so you can see it was a big open space. Now there are accessories I could have made with these but I misplaced the pattern for them xD.

As for some tips...
Well, I try to make sure I don't use a very long thread because its easy for it to get tangled and knotted and I have no idea how to ever get out some of the knots.
Make sure you have the right count plastic canvas because some of the more extensive pieces use different counts in different areas.
And don't be afraid to use your hot glue gun xD. Whenever I had loose ends that seem to poke out I use a bit of hot glue to keep them down and it looks great. (apparently its not on the doll house because i didn't know then what I knew now.)

The barbie cabinet took about a month only because I had a few spare hours here and there to do it. Same with the pet shop coasters and holders. However the pins, mailboxes, and baskets took only 30 minutes (each) to do. They were very easy. The bigger stuff takes a while for me. It took me 1 year to finish a doll house, with plenty errors in it. I was 15 when I made it. I don't have a picture in my photobucket though, so if you want to see it I'll have to go take pictures.

I mostly work with plastic canvas, and it uses a needle so I would guess it was needlework. Anywho I have a plathora of pictures of things I've done. So on with the pictures

There are 6 coasters all together. I had to hot glue on the roof to the main part as were the instructions in the booklet for it. And since I hot glued it a while ago I have to redo it seeing as i didn't hot glue one side well. It was a relatively easy project to do.

This is a easter bunny basket table decorations. With ribbon inside that i put there festively. They are very tiny for table decorations. Can easily fit in the palm of your hand and if you have hands like me it fills almost all of it, but of course I have tiny hands and you can stuff either candy or ribbon in it like i did. Very cute for the springtime. If you want more of a size description I can tell you that you can put an egg in it and it fills the whole space.

a Barbie Kitchen Corner Cabinet in a light green color. As opposed to the bright yellow color in the pattern. It was supposed to have laminate type plastic in between the open shelves on the top but i didn't have any so it remains an open area.

The mailbox Ornament. The side opposite it can easily be customizable with initials or a small picture. You can stuff 2-3 small tootsie rolls in it for the kiddies. Trust me I checked xD. And if you really want to stuff it about half a handful. which gets it bursting at the seems -ruined her second attempt doing this-

skull pins. A great hit with my friends. I made the pattern for them myself. In 3 different colors for boys and girls. xD. The pin is a silver one kinda tiny. I put it on my purse and it looked good though. Thats when my friends noticed and wanted one. Also, they have felt backings.

It took me 4 hours and a broken needle but I finally made something. It was my first time using a sewing machine, before getting my own on loan, and I made something! Yay me. Okay so here's the lovely object of my affection. I am so proud of it. It actually has a few mistakes but those are in the back so you can't really see them. And I used some scrap stretch material for the pretty band.

Excuse my pretty pjs. I ended up taking this picture right before I went to bed and uploaded it in the morning.
