1  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Nerdy birthday hoops on: October 15, 2014 12:03:34 AM
I've always loved checking out everyone's hoops on here, so for my partner's birthday I decided to make some hoops for him! I did a couple that are in jokes for us or references to our relationship, and a couple that are just references to things he loves.
Anyway, check out some photos! Smiley

This one is a text message we send to each other aaalll the time. It's basically just a way of saying "I love you".

This one is because we met in university, doing a jewellery making class together. I was making dozens of buttons in class, and I was also making a button bouquet for my sister's wedding, so we would often talk about "buttons and shit".

He LOVES Supernatural, and he and his best friends have the tattoo, so when I saw Merliquin's Supernatural hoop https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=433484.0 I knew I had to make one!

Deadpool, because Deadpool!

And finally, Jay and Silent Bob! (I didn't get a photo of this one before wrapping it, so I had to get him to send me one...)

The Deadpool and Jay and Silent Bob images were just ones that I found searching online, so I would love to give credit to the original artists, but I can't find where I got them. Just know I didn't come up with those designs myself!
I had also planned to make more hoops, but ran out of time. Luckily he loved them so much, I'll be able to keep giving them to him for birthdays and Christmasses for a few years...

Anyway, thanks for having a look, and of course I'd love to hear some feedback!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Library skirt on: February 22, 2014 12:09:52 AM
My oldest sister loves books! A while ago she found a skirt online that was made of book fabric, and decided she had to have one, so I made her one for Christmas! I used Alexander Henry Somerville Study fabric, and this amazing tutorial http://www.oneaviandaemon.com/hemless-a-line-skirt/

She loves the skirt, and it fits her perfectly. She wore it to a "What I Want To Be When I Grow Up" party (she went as a librarian)

And I embroidered a "sexy librarian" for it too, using a pattern from http://sublimestitching.com/ (this was the first time I'd done any embroidery)

Thanks for looking and I appreciate any feedback! Smiley
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Party dress on: February 21, 2014 11:35:59 PM
I bought this fabric a little while ago, because I was so in love with it. I was planning to just make a super simple, around the house sort of dress with it- you know, cut off a tank top and sew the skirt on? But I decided the fabric was too good for that, and came up with this instead. I finished it just in time to wear to my best friend's engagement party!

(I tried to take a photo at the party, but it was REALLY windy, so it turned out a bit dodgy. I'll show you anyway, so you can see my orange shoes and handbag! Cheesy)

I drafted the pattern myself and it's (almost) all french seamed. I'm super proud of it and it fits REALLY well (I'm trying to lose weight, so next time I wear it I might be able to breathe!)
Oh! And it has a bright green zipper in the back! (I don't have a photo of the back when it's on, but this is the zip)

Thanks for looking, and I appreciate any feedback! Smiley
4  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / I wish I was from the future! on: August 18, 2013 04:46:06 PM
I've been browsing Craftster for years now, but have never posted my own project until now, so here goes! Be nice to me! Tongue

A few weeks ago my best friend had her 21st. She asked us to come dressed as the era in which we *wish* we turned 21, so I chose to go future/post-apocaplyse. I made a hood, a sort-of-bustier-type-thing, and redecorated a pair of shorts I had sitting in my drawers unused for a few years now.

I'm super proud of my hood. I started with a dark brown faux fur inside, and built up the outside with fabric scraps and other bits I had around.

...and this is the rest of the costume!

The front

And the back

And this is me wearing it with a 1940s leather trench coat that I've had for a while...
