Being completly infatuated with Japan and at the moment crochet, I decided to make this Sakura drawstring pouch.

I made this soaker for my partner in the Harry Potter Swap round 7. When  I looked around her wists I saw a lot of soaker and when she mentioned that she had a bun in the oven I made this soaker. This was my first endeavor in following a pattern. And it worked out, so yay me!

13  Slytherin Pride! euh.. Scarf in Crochet: Completed Projects by papilionette on: March 21, 2010 05:17:25 PM
I made this scarf for my partner in the Harry Potter swap round 7 and it was my first big project in crochet. I did it all in single crochet and cursed myself at first, but eventually it did turn out pretty long. I used acrylic yarn for this.

15  Ttris the Owl in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by papilionette on: March 21, 2010 05:12:02 PM
I made this owl for the Harry Potter swap round 7 and my partner named him Ttris.

I based him of an owl I saw in her wist and used fabric from my stash. The plaid is from a vintage bedsheet from my mother's grandmother and the rest I had laying around. I tried to use different kind of textures. And used safety eyes for the first time.

So hopefully this one is even kidproof.

16  Clothing for Kuroyami in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by papilionette on: February 07, 2010 02:20:29 PM
A friend of mine has her own souldoll and even though I think they are kind of creepy I did offer to make her some clothing. I llike to make clothing, so why not for her doll.

The pictures are somewhat dark, but that was because I just finished when it was already dark and she would leave with the set. So I tried to get some lighting from our lamp Tongue The vest and the pants are made of purple fabric that is a little bit shiny and looks black when you hold it differently. The blouse was made from white cotton, but was colored with coffee when we discovered that we only had enough of a yellowish button. The ruffle was made of cotton lace also dyed in coffee and has a little mother of pearl button.

This is the front with the shirt tucked in.

This is the front with shirt untucked. I like it better that way and the little thread you can still see on some of the edges were cut of after the making of these pictures.

And that's the back.  Personally I would have liked it better when the tails were somewhat longer, but still I like the set all together.

17  Plaid dress in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by papilionette on: January 19, 2010 07:37:31 AM
Normally I like plaid.. on other people. I'm more of a 1 color gall. Black.. mostly. But when I saw this plaid fabric I was sold. I told myself that I bought it for my sister's promdress, but when it turned out that I needed at least 5 more meters of the fabric and that it was sold out, I could use it for myself again.

So I started folding. And folding.. And finally I started sewing al those folds. After sewing al those folds I made it formfitting and then I wanted to add some cute frumply sleeves. But then I discovered something that made me throw this dress in a corner and never finished until yesterday. It has been on the radiator for almost 3 months. It wasn't until my father asked me if he could throw it away that I started working on it again. And made a lacey vest to go with it.

This is the result.

I'm looking a little grumpy on this one, but around that time I was awake for almost 36 hours. I just wanted to sleep. Tongue

This is how the dress looks on top witout the vest. I made straps with some lace I had laying around.

And on the next two pictures you can see how I pleated everything and sewed it down.

Thanks for looking.

This is a costume I made for a friend that he wore to the MCM London Expo last year.

I made the jacket, the pants and the white scarf.

He was very happy with it.

19  Motor saddle in Completed Projects by papilionette on: January 17, 2010 09:20:00 AM
My father only drives a motorcycle, but it is an old one and he needed a new saddle cover. He first tried it himself with some black pleather. But looking back at it it was doomed to fail because the pleather was way to thin and the cats in the neighbourhood decided that they had a new scratchpole. So when I found some upholstery pleather in a remnantbin at a refurnisher, I decided to make a new one for him.

There are still some mistakes, but in the end I was pretty pleased with the outcome. And so was my father.

Pictures of the saddle back on the motorcycle will come later.

20  Koi patch in Completed Projects by papilionette on: January 17, 2010 09:10:29 AM
This patch I made by sewing 5 layers of sheer white fabric on brightly colored felt. Then I sewed in the pattern of the koi and it's scales. And cut out the layers in between the sewinglines. In some places I cut out all the layers and in some places between 2 and 4 layers for the gradation of colors. I want to use it on something, but I haven't have any ideas yet.
