1  "Vegas makes my head spin" quilt in Quilting: Completed Projects by missgeekcore on: April 08, 2005 09:14:10 AM

I made this stack and whack quilt top for the Vegas theme at fiber_friday on LJ. Was feeling particularly festive. I still need to find the right backing for it, and decide how exactly I'm going to quilt it.

2  Tacky birth control M&P soaps in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by missgeekcore on: April 07, 2005 08:59:01 AM

For some reason I had a NEED to make birth control soaps. And spiders. I am most happy with the condom soaps, as I did a 2 step process for them. They are lime scented.

You really can't see, but it used to have bright pink highlights all over. But then I had to go find a job. And apparently they frown on the pink for accountants. Jerks.

Here are mine. My tattoo artist died about 3 years ago, and I've either had no artist or no money since. I'm DYING for new ink. There's more besides these, but these are my favorites. I have a bit of an obsession with Tank Girl... which is a bit obvious...

6  Kimono WaLoli Dress *now with tutorial* in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by missgeekcore on: March 12, 2005 02:13:22 PM
I really wanted to do something that reminded me of spring, and this is what I came up with in the middle of the night. I think I'll eventually make an underbust corset to go with it.

Tutorial for making kimono.

This assumes a fairly good knowledge of sewing. Partially because I made it up as I went along, and am trying to recall exactly what I did.

Okay, warning you, drawing in life or on the computer, not my strong point. But this might give you an idea of how I did it.

The top part of each side of the kimono is based on my size, and is fitted until just under the arm. I extended both sides out to add a nice fullness. You can see the basic shape on the picture. The back is fitted through the underarm as well. I sewed the left and right sides to the back at the side seams and the shoulders, leaving a bit unsewn into the armhole area. I sewed the lapel (which is a piece of fabric cut long enough to go up the front of the dress on the non-side seams and back down again) on right sides together to the front of the dress going up the left side and ending down on the right side. I pressed a 1/2 inch seam on the unsewn edge of the lapel. Then I folded the lapel in half and sewed it down by topstitching and catching the underside.

I then sewed a very big loop of fabric (I pictured it folded over) for the large part of the sleeve. I sewed the tiny cap sleeve (fitted to my arm fairly closely) on, and then sewed the tube of fabric (large sleeve part) on, creating a curve as I sewed down. I actually resewed what I had done before, as I wanted a gentle curve. I have included a picture to (I hope) illustrate what I mean about the curve.

I sewed a band around the cuff of each sleeve in the same manner as I had sewn the lapel on. Then I did a blind hem on the bottom, and VOILA! Finished product.

I really hope this makes sense to someone out there.
