1  Re: Promalong - Making your own Prom dress? Join the club! in Clothing Sewalongs by actoneends on: May 09, 2006 02:47:42 PM
wow, i posted on here almost a year ago... and i'm posting again now.. who know this thread would last through two Westby Proms (the art majors fundraising prom).  last year i used a burday pattern, this year, it's Butterick Retro '57, so that's Butterick B4512

hopefully i'll be able to finish the dress in the next two weeks...  cross your fingers for me!

and here it is!  the prom was on cinco de mayo and we had Matt & Kim play!  if you don't know them, you need to!

and these are my dates...  unfortunately, my boyfriend was the one taking the pictures for the prom, and i didn't get one with him... but that's ok, cause my dates are cuter!

oh, and it was a plus size pattern, but i'm a size 10...so i had to cut it down to size...only the top was too long for me, so i got some funny bunching.  and i added the bow, it's actually sewn on... i hope someone took a pic of my bum, cause it's super cute! (the bow, not the bum)

2  Re: "Five Things You Don't Know About Me" SECRET CD SWAP GALLERY in The Swap Gallery by actoneends on: March 08, 2006 05:36:04 PM
i know my partner received, so i'm posting what i sent:

I don't have 5 secrets, so i wrote 10 things about me (and two secrets).   each song has to do with something about me...i explained the first 10...and then just included the other 12 (cause 5 songs is not a long enough cd for my tastes)

the playlist:
Bridges and Balloons- Joanna Newsom
What If No One's Watching- Ani Difranco
Too Drunk Too F***- Dead Kennedys
Psychobitches Outta Hell- Horrorpops
Oh Bondage, Up Yours!
I F***ed a Zombie- The Deadutantes
Hot Topic- Le  Tigre
One Finger Victory Salute- Little Light
Feeling is Wrong- Hail SOcial
I Touch Myself- The Divynals
Friday Night, Saturday Moring- THe specials
One Beat- Sleater Kinney
Just can't Get Enough- Nouvelle Vague (depeche mode cover)
Take Your Mama Out- Scissor Sisters
White Rabbit- Jefferson Airplane
Suck My Left One- Bikini Kill
Like Eating Glass- Bloc Party
Disposable Parts- Enon
Paper Bag- Fiona Apple
Why DO you Love Me- Garbage
Too Drunk to F***- Nouvelle Vague

(i thought i should edit on on this thread)

I made a little booklet (which i did not take a picture of my before my batteries died)

and a little clutch

which is about 5x8 so it perfectly fit the cd!

4  first project! a hideous blanket! in Weaving: Completed Projects by actoneends on: February 11, 2006 02:17:54 PM
ok, so this was my first big project on the loom (before this, i only made a few 2 inch samples)

so i'm pretty proud of myself.  

i still need to work in my ends, and knot the fringe a little bit more, but i love it, and the pattern is reversible!  

here's a shot of the pattern, it's folded so you can see both sides.  the pattern was called "gothic cross"

what do you think?

5  first crochet! that ol' star blanket in Crochet: Completed Projects by actoneends on: February 11, 2006 02:14:34 PM
i started making this blanket months ago, and then forgot about it....

i originally saw it here....  https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=27667.0
but the pattern is from here...  http://www.angelfire.com/va3/heartfeltangels/littlestarafghan.html

so i finally finished it.  it's a little (ok, a lot) wonky right now, i have to wash and block it still... also, it's super soft cause it's redheart baby soft...  and, it's super wonky because i kept gradually switching to larger hooks as i got farther out (probably not the best idea)  but here it is!   

and i still don't know how to do a double chain! 

and here's a shot of the detail... ignore that one really big hole....this was my first time crocheting

7  ugly shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by actoneends on: May 30, 2005 09:03:35 PM
i went to the mall with a friend two days ago and she wanted to buy a really ugly top, and i said "i could make that.  it would be way easy"  well when i woke up yesterday, i made it! 

the picture's really orangey- the shirt is hot pink with white polka dots.   buttons on the side, elastic across the top, and the back opens in a V shape.   i also didn't hem the bottom yet.  but i'm bored, so i'm going to post!

oh geeze, my room is such a total mess!

Yay! Yay! Yay! Oh, glamarama, you're my new favorite! I'm so excited to make the Bernat cape & cardigan. I needed something to make my best friend for Christmas & I think I've found it. Yay!

I just imagine the woman in the green & leopard sweater smoking lots of cigarettes & drinking gin & tonics.

Plus, look at how teeny this young lady's waist is!

Thank you!!!

mmmm...i love gin and tonic

here we go, this is the first time i've put a pic of something i've made up...i'm not so great at the pictures in the mirror thing yet, but no one was home to help me!  

now keep in mind that it's wrinkled..i need to iron it, and once i do, it doesn't fold in in the center like it is in this pic

here are my shoes....

and i felt bad that the camera was blocking my face so here you go...
