Crafty Sleeve: Part III

Sorry if these are huge.  Undecided I really like getting the thread snips instead of the regular scissors. I use them 10x more...I can't function without them.  I can't wait to get more color...and of course the background. It's really gonna tie everything together when we lay the background in. 3 sessions down...god-knows-how-many-more to go.  Tongue

The corset on the dressform is going to be one that I just created for a client - it will look like this:

what are you thinking for the backround sugarkitty

She said it, you know...20 pages back.  Don't you pay attention?  *giggle*...just kidding! Cheesy  I'm just really looking forward to seeing the completed piece & wouldn't miss a bit of it.

It will be a pink leopard print 'satin' background with pattern pieces, and of course random sewing objects like buttons, pins, whatever. TONS of color. TONS. Smiley My artist's wife is a seamstress, too, so he's really into it.

Check out his other stuff: http://www.fatetattoo.com/tattoos_jack.php

I had to have the old school iron. I couldn't do a damn thing without mine (tho, it's not old school)...

Hee. I'm usually pretty bad about reading people's text myself. Smiley

I'm such a huge dork...I got my pic taken with Kat Von D today, and I'm totally giddy about it. She was at the Hell City Tattoo Fest here in Columbus, and she's as nice in person as she is on the show....I look like an enormous whale next to her...but whatever...haha.... God I need to lose some weight... Tongue

Crafty Sleeve = Part II

The dressform is going to be the last piece we put on, so we didn't get to that yesterday - nor the thimble or scissors. Because of the shapes of all the other tattoos, we may have to change the scissors to thread snips...which is just as well.  We've also decided to add a seam ripper somewhere in the mix! I'm in love with the pin cushion...and the shading. I can't wait for color (or background)!

We didn't do any work on the iron because it wasn't totally healed yet. It was *excruciating* while it healed, so I'm fine with giving that area a rest for now. Tongue

The beginnings of my crafty sleeve...(lots o' pictures)

Other than the additions noted on the pics, I will have othr crafty accessories, like buttons, pins, etc, scattered through out. The background is going to be satin leopard print fabric and pattern pieces. I've got another session in two weeks to finish the outlines, and get the black and grey laid in. Then, two more sessions of color.

Sorry it's all angry and red...I couldn't wait to take pics. Tongue Oh, and for the person inquiring about prices...my sleeve is $1600. $1500 + $100 tax. Ouch.

5  Silk Underbust Corset - IMAGE HEAVY! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sugarkitty on: September 01, 2005 05:54:02 AM
Normally I only make custom corsets to order, but I've been itching to try out some new ideas, so I made an underbust corset to post on eBay. Fortunately, underbust corsets don't have as many measurements to worry with, so I don't feel so bad that it's not 100% custom.

The outer layer is fuschia silk dupioni, and the PVC piping is handmade (by me).

I got my package on Friday, but was not able to post pics until today because I was out of town all weekend.

My SC got me all kinds of fun Hello Kitty stuff, which I love! Thank you! And I really love the new bandana this time...it's perfect! I've already been wearing it in my hair!

Also, this time my SC sent me a naked little charm bracelet. It took me a minute to realize that the little charms on the cards are for the bracelet! She sent me two charms last time, too, but I didn't know they were like add-a-charms (I'm a little slow sometimes!)...so now, I have four charms to add!

Thank you!

Finally! My fiance and I just moved - it took me days and days to get my studio together. I am a seamstress by trade, so it's not just my 'craft' room; it's my office, too! The pics are going clockwise around the room...starting with the closet (we removed the doors).

The first view of my fabric stash...

Another view of my ridiculously large fabric collection. These bins are HUGE (24 x 17 x 16) and they are FULL! There are 9 bolts of fabric behind them that you can't see. I sort of have an addiction.  Roll Eyes

Inside the closet. In the back right corner (though you can't see it well) is a rack with about $2,000 worth of steel boning.  Tongue

My beloved sewing table (a hollow core door and two saw horses) with my beloved Brother CS8150 and beloved Huskylock 901. Mmmm, Huskylock.

My jewelry-making table. Not too exciting.

My computer/faxing/printing/scanning/copying/emailing/filing/packaging/phoning/surfing station. Yes, I drink beer when I craft.

My jewelry-making supplies.

The most important shelf of all: My stereo and CD changer. I can't work without music. Just can't. Also, all my patterns, and two more sewing machines. Yes, I have 4 sewing machines.   Undecided

This doesn't even show the basement - where I keep all my packing and shipping supplies. As well as art/craft supplies that I don't use on a regular basis. Sheesh, I have a lot of crap.

Phew! Finally! When I actually got time to take a pic of my Craftster Stash, my internet service went down for 8 hours.  Undecided Unfortunately, I work from home, so no internet = bad news. Luckily, it's back up, and now I can post!

There's also a cherry bandana, but I'm currently wearing it as a headband 'cuz I love it! Thank you!  Grin

Can we see a shot of the back, please?

That's the best I've got. It's not sewn crooked at the top there - it just looks like it because I hadn't added the hook and eye yet.
