31  Hot Rod Shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ViciousPrecious on: May 30, 2010 12:27:22 AM
Hi! I made this top from a dress pattern that I liked the shape of and had a centre seam so I could put the chunky zip in. All the edges are finished with bias binding because I was feeling a bit lazy but it turned out to be a good choice I think!

Check out the cute fabric!

Thanks for lookin' Smiley

32  From dodgy fabric to surprisingly fab dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ViciousPrecious on: May 19, 2010 05:30:30 AM
I bought three meters of this horrible synthetic, slippery stuff for about $10 from out the back of a dress shop about 8 years ago and then it sat under a giant pile of fabric and patterns until now. I love the shade of red, still not convinced about the pattern and the feel but I reckon it works ok.

I used the same pattern as I did for this dress https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346689.0 but I added a sash at the back and tiny bows on the sleeves.

Sorry I don't have a full length photo of me wearing it, only this totally indulgent photo of my boyfriend and I out having a beer  Tongue

Thanks for looking  Cheesy

33  d20 Handbag of Holding in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ViciousPrecious on: May 15, 2010 03:11:09 PM
I had a go at the d20 bag from this website; http://www.evilmadscientist.com/article.php/d20bag

I probably could have used a stiffer fabric and done my corners a little better but it turned out ok. I gave it to my boyfriend to take to GenCon, a big gaming convention. He loves purple and has a really ridiculous collection of dice  Grin

I think I will attempt this again and make one for myself  Smiley

Thanks for the compliments  Smiley
Could you tell us where you got the pattern from?
This is the pattern I used. It's from 1991. I have a really weird collection of patterns from when I bought out the inventory of a store that was closing down. I picked this one because I liked the sweetheart neckline and princess seam construction but for the skirt bit I just made stuff up as I went along.

Is this the type of thing where the top and bottoms are connected? I always wondered if those would be comfortable/practical--what if you want to wear the top with a different skirt?
They are attached, yeah. I probably prefer dresses to skirts and tops because I feel like it's less hassle and I don't have to worry about picking out a whole outfit  Grin

35  Two new dresses - WARNING - colour and photo explosion in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ViciousPrecious on: May 14, 2010 11:38:23 PM
I got some small pieces of Japanese fabric from a craft show and really wanted to put them into something wearable. I loved how it turned out so much that I made two! Even though I'm really pleased with the fit and look of the bodices I will probably not use this kind of pattern very often in the future. So many pieces! Shocked

I'm not game to wear the yellow/purple one without a coat over it. The red and black will be getting a lot of wear.

Some close ups of the super cute fabric.

Did I mention it's really comfortable to wear too? Perfect for a game of pool at the pub  Wink

Thanks for looking!

36  Hamburger cupcakes and Unicorns in Dessert by ViciousPrecious on: May 11, 2010 03:08:10 PM
I had to cater my own birthday party. Horrifying, I know! But secretly, I love making yummies so it's ok  Wink

This was my first try at hamburger cupcakes. I was planning on doing a layer of green frosting for "lettuce" but I was rather time poor and didn't want to over extend. The "meat" is a brownie cut with a cookie cutter and the "bun" is plain butter cake.

And this is the main cake. I used a pony cake template I got from over on the Betty Crocker website and just added a wedge of cake to make it a unicorn. Fun!  Cheesy

I also made a costume/outfit for the day which you can look at on the clothing board here https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=346689.0

Thanks for looking!

37  Hello Sailor! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ViciousPrecious on: May 07, 2010 01:45:29 AM
This is the outfit I made for my birthday party just last weekend. I think it all started when I found the fabric and just had to make something out of it. I used a 1995 Style pattern 2705, the anchor brooches I got from a Sportsgirl accessory store and the hat I also made using this tutorial; http://community.livejournal.com/egl/10887844.html I sewed a slide comb into the brim because I didn't want to be fussing with a ribbon around my neck all day.

And a close up of my hat

I really hope I get another opportunity to wear it  Smiley

38  Dinosaur Birthday Cake in Dessert by ViciousPrecious on: April 20, 2010 03:03:31 PM

I made this cake for my boyfriend's birthday last week. It was super easy and I got the instructions from the Betty Crocker site; http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/rex-the-dinosaur-cake/3134d1ed-d6a5-4cd9-9689-44868901548a

I don't have any proper icing tools so it's not a very smooth finish. Also I didn't keep any plain white frosting to make the teeth so I used some tiny candy hearts from a previous cupcake project.

And speaking of cupcakes, here are the ones I made for Easter;

Thanks for looking  Smiley
