1  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / spiderwick chronicles costumes 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.

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.
3  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / another calder mobile, Modern meets Nature 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
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / simplicity 5564, very nice A-line on: April 29, 2006 05:18:37 PM
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.

5  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / pavement single cover patch for men's shirt 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.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / hot air balloon button up shirt with funny collar 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.

i made this for my sister's birthday. she's a huge wes anderson fan. the details were really hard, but she loooooves it.
8  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / alexander calder 2D on: April 20, 2006 09:20:25 PM
I love the way this turned out. calder is my favorite artist, but how to turn the fab mobile into something 2 dimensional? embroider it! I used dark brown hot pink and the largest shape is bright orange. I think it looks like fall leaves, but since it's spring you can think of it as flower buds.

This was made using dyabolica's pattern found here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=6234.0

10  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / lone star beer home acessories on: April 16, 2006 02:13:44 PM
candles and wall thing.

for candles i just ripped the labels off and glued them, along with sequins, with tacky glue. I also cut up a cap with my crappy scissors.  The wall thing came without the beads. I poked holes in the tin with a hammer and nail then put some beads on florist wire. very easy. The lonestar box is a bit off center. I used to have a picture of frieda kahlo in it, but she freaks my husband out.
