21  From Lumberjack to Princess in CHALLENGE 45 ENTRIES by StrawberryJeli on: December 05, 2009 11:07:49 PM
With a lot of fabric paint, cutting, and sewing, I was able to transform an old flannel shirt into a Marie Antoinette inspired top.

ETA Here's the long version of how I made this top: I cut the collar and the sleeves off. I made the armholes and sleeves smaller for a better fit and added a little puff at the top of the sleeves. I also cut the bottom of the shirt in the front shorter and created a tail in the back.

I was originally going to bleach and dye the shirt, but after two attempts at bleaching I discovered it had NO effect. So I had to scrap that plan and turn to fabric paints instead. I used Tulip brand, colors Ice Blue Pearl, Carnation Pink Pearl, and Azure Blue Metallic. I applied the paints in a random pattern with makeup sponges. This took me about two days (one for the front, one for the back). I also used a stencil on the front, so the original pattern could peek through.

After waiting for it to finish  drying, I hemmed the edges, added lace to the top and sheer fabric, ruffled, to the sleeves.

These are the items butterflyangel sent me. The swap organizer asked me to wait to post pictures until my second package arrived, so I could post everything together.

Here are the handmade items from the first package; a wooden star, paper cranes and stars, and two polymer bobby pins:

From the second package; a bag and matching wallet:

And all the extras (my favorites are the Eiffel Tower cards and little music note patch):

While I'm eagerly waiting for my package to arrive, I thought I'd post a couple photos of the items I made and sent to butterflyangel.

A ribbon curtain/wall hanging:

I shaped the wire into hearts at the end and tied ribbons and strips of lace across to create a kind of "beaded" curtain (except with ribbons instead of beads). I hadn't made anything like it before, but I was really pleased at how it turned out. It looks really pretty in person. I plan on making one for myself too.

Make-up case, necklace, Japanese eraser, and stickers:

My swap partner said that she liked skull patterns and that she liked make-up, so I sewed a make-up case with some cute pink skull fabric I found at Joannes. I made the pendant on the necklace with resin, sprinkles and glitter (for the shiny part of the swap). I made the stickers too, from my own art.

24  Lioness Cuff Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by StrawberryJeli on: July 14, 2009 09:33:45 PM
This is a cuff bracelet I made the other day, from ribbon, lace, an iron-on patch, and rhinestones.

I'm having a "crafting day" tomorrow with my mom to make more cuff bracelets. Of course, around here almost everyday is a craft day.

25  Masks from Under the Sea in Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects by StrawberryJeli on: July 14, 2009 08:30:57 PM
I made these masks as part of my final project in my ceramics class.

This first mask was inspired by coral. To keep the texture, instead of using glaze, I painted the mask with acrylics and pearl pigment powder.

The mask below was painted entirely with glazes.
