beautiful black apron with matryoshkas on the pockets!

small zippered pouch with little cards and index cards crafted by atsuko for STS30

pin with little nesting dolls from alaska- this is seriously adorable. i put it on my jacket immediately.

it was all packaged up really nicely- the big pouch, held the medium one, and the medium pouch held the smaller one. just like little nesting dolls. thanks again A2K!

3  "it's very birdlike" prom dress (IMG HEAVY) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: May 12, 2008 04:16:26 PM
so my friend mike's first reaction to my dress was: "nice cait. it's very birdlike." i feel like that might have something to do with the feathers....

it's a basic strapless dress made of royal blue gabardine and lined with green satin.  there's a zipper in the back as well as a small slit so i can get my groove on.  i then handsewed all the peacock feathers on the front. my mom did my hair and put a bunch of feathers in it.

i actually really lucked out with the peacock feathers- i got 30 of them for $5 at a yard sale.

and we rolled up to prom in a firetruck with the sirens blaring.

5  sylvia plath tote in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: August 21, 2007 12:50:30 PM
my coworker is leaving for college and comissioned a bag from me. she wanted a ziptop tote and said she likes sylvia plath and yellow. and this is the result:

close up of the details:

and the back detail:

i used iron-on transfer paper to put the picture and quotes on yellow textured fabric. but i absolutely hate iron-on transfers; mine always end up looking cheap and peeling. so i put a layer of vinyl over them as well. the top has a zipper and this crazy one strap thing with one part in the front and one in the back. overall i'm fairly happy with the bag. let me know what you think!

i can finally post pictures!
we got a new computer and i couldn't figure out how to crop images and i didn't want to post these massive photos and freeze everyone up. so finally! here they are!

things i recieved: sweet-smelling massage soaps from luxielou; 2 adorable felt bird brooches from nosusanfx; really neat looking paper crane earrings from skitterflex; water bottle cozy from dragonslair in the best shade of mango; a crochet bag from cyndiq (my dad saw it and freaked out and was like "what is this?!?!?" ); hand milled-soaps from brideofknitterstin which are currently being used in my bathroom...and (not pictured yet) awesome criss-cross fabric coasters from mini and a really delicate looking tatted bookmark from sewknitter.

overall = excellent swapping experience.

wow, i love how you interpretated the theme of your dance but what about the other girls, thy look like wearing just usual dance dresses and nothing theme like

yeah- they all dressed normally. i think it's enough that i make them put up with my outrageous outfits and ridiculous methods of transportation. i'm not going to force them to get in on it. although the one girl's dress is this really neat vintage frock if you can see it in the pictures...

and here's more pictures- they should give you a better idea of what the dress looked like....

9  Re: orange winter formal dress; complete with beehive and badass story in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: May 29, 2007 06:57:26 PM
The higher the hair, the closer to God, ladies.

It's so B-52's.  I have rarely been so jealous of another person.  It is great. 

yeah i totally loved the whole bee-hive idea and i actually took a pictures of the lady from the b-52's to the hair place when i got it done....the phone call my mom made to set up my appointment went something like:
mom: yes she'd like a beehive...no...not an updo....like...a beehive.....no she's not elderly......

i'm not going to lie- i have no idea how people used to do their hair like that on a regular basis back in the day. the lady who did my hair said they had never had a request for a beehive before and she never learned it in beauty school so it was all experimental.  i have really long and really really thick hair. so she just left the outer layer down and teased the middle part; then pinned the teased pieces in a cone shape and covered it with the outer hair. it was such a process and we kept having to redo it because i didn't have enough hair on the outside. to make this all ten billion times better, another girl from my school was two chairs away from me getting her updo done with little curls and flowers while my lady was teasing my hair out remarking that i looked like a cavewoman as i continued to urge her to make it even bigger....
it's like that.

in the process:

and then taking it out afterwards ( three friends and a bottle of conditioner):

there's more obnoxious pictures of me being trashy with my rat's nest hair in the link under my first post.

10  safari prom oh seven in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by honorablemention on: May 28, 2007 08:46:25 AM
it's never enough for me to just buy a nice, normal dress and go to a formal dance. i can never settle for simple updo and limo. it always have to be a themed ordeal. my poor date (who made a pact with me freshman year to escort me to every school dance) is just realzing that he will never have a normal dance-going experience.

so. for my junior prom, the theme was the ever epic SAFARI PROM.
i made my dress as well as eric's vest and cravat.  i don't have any pictures of the back but i used gold grommets and then laced up the back with black silky cord.  the bottom part of the dress was four different prints. it was very nice. i didn't use a pattern cause patterns are for suckers. sike. they're more like for people who are smart enough to know how to use them and who are gentle enough that they don't rip them to shreds attempting to unfold them.

and our mode of transportation:

aww hellyes. big pimpin.
