1  spiderwick chronicles costumes in Costumes: Completed Projects by meredithy on: March 04, 2007 03:35:12 PM
Book People in Austin is having a camp based on the spiderwick chronicles, and i got to help make the costumes. AllisonB did most of the structural designing, and i did a lot of the little detail stuff.
here's a plate from the Spiderwick Guide

and then an almost finished costume. the bigger leaves and some of the smaller ones are faux suede, the longer thin leaves are dupioni and linen.
  here's a picture of another elf/fairy costume. the bodice is faux seude, the skirt is dupioni, and the train is cotton gauze.

we're still working on the last little details of a few other, and i'll post those when we're done.

3  yoshitomo nara pillow, sleeping girl in Needlework: Completed Projects by meredithy on: December 02, 2006 05:51:06 AM
I made this for my sister. Instead of doing a satin stitch for the whole thing i used an applique method. all of the edges are embroidered. I wish i had a better close up shot, but I'm a horrible photographer. for the hair and eyelashes i mixed two colors and it looks neat.

Here's mine from aeronberry! I've only listened to the first disc so far but it has flown together remarkably well. I particularly enjoyed the Bruno Pelletier song.

6  another calder mobile, Modern meets Nature in Needlework: Completed Projects by meredithy on: June 21, 2006 06:50:53 PM
here's another one of my set of calder mobile art pieces. this one turned out looking like branches and leaves too, but green like spring! I also like it because the dangly bits are polka dotty. I think I'm going to keep making them till I run out of ideas and color combos....i.e. forever. perhaps a stich-a-long would be fun? -mer

astarael said I could post a picture of what I sent her, cause she's going camping and won't be able to post for a while. I made her a big bag with matching mp3 player holder, and some stationary. I also threw in a few big dots for fun! It was my first time to make a bag like that so I made a practice one first. I've been carrying around the practice piece all the time, so I hope she'll do the same! It was fun, and I can't wait to see what she sent me! -mer

I've made 6 skirts using this pattern. here are my two favorite. The fruit fabric was purchased at an antique mall. It was hiding between tablecloths and my mom spotted it for me. I recommend this pattern to anyone who wants to start sewing. the look can be so different depending on what fabric you use.

9  pavement single cover patch for men's shirt in Needlework: Completed Projects by meredithy on: April 29, 2006 05:11:25 PM
my husband is a huge pavement fan so i copied the cover of spit on a stranger and embroidered it on a patch. I then put the patch on a new shirt. it's one of my first embroidery projects that i'm just getting around to posting. also, pictures are blurry due to  the copious ammounts of coffee I consumed before taking the pictures.

10  hot air balloon button up shirt with funny collar in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by meredithy on: April 29, 2006 04:59:27 PM
I found this material on the sale tables at hancock, and knew I had to make something odd with it. I took apart a shirt I got at old navy that had seen better days for the pattern. I adjusted it to be a little longer, added a little poof to the sleeves and attempted to round the collar. The collar ended up looking a little more like 70's style lobes than intended, but I think over all it's pretty nice.
