1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black Checked Clutch Bag with Oversized Bow on: March 17, 2010 07:18:52 PM
I am so proud of this bag, took me around 4/5 hours to complete. I lurrrve it, and will be taking out to my friends birthday drink session with my matching black checked dress. I mostly winged this bag, I had made a crappy trial run first off, made a few tweaks here and there, then made this!

I think that this is the first time I have not made a mistake making something, I usually sew things together that arnt supposed to be, or sew up something that was meant to be left open, so i'm pretty chuffed Cheesy

thanks for looking! please leave a comment for me to read Smiley

I got it from ebay, can't remember what the shop name was called though. It was pretty expensive at 9 a metre, but worth every penny!! I've used it for two bag's now and still have a bit left.

Wow! I totally love these :-) and at 1 a metre you can't go wrong! I wish I could find a market stall selling fabric that cheap.
The cheshire cat embroidary looks really awesome too, and i'm also loving the tweetie pie fabric!

All in all, great job  Grin

Hi there, I recently got some yellow sparkly fimo as a gift from a friend (was in a yellow sparkly stage  Tongue) and want to jump on the polymer clay train, but i'm at a loss of trying to think of simple yellow items to recreate!!

all I can think of to make is a yellow butterfly?
Edited to add: or a big sparkly yellow banana! hahaha imagine that! giggty giggity Cheesy I hate spongebob also, so not that either.... running out of idea's! helppppppp

Does anyone have any ideas of what i can do, or any other colours/items i'd need to buy to complete something cool. Can you paint on fimo?

I want to buy some of these big safety pins, but i don't know the proper name for it! i tried searching for nappy pins, but they all had brightly coloured tips on them, and safety pins need to be less safe. The first two pictures are the best at what I want. So could anyone help me name the pin, or link me to a store that sells them. Thanksss!!

it looks a lot better and I bet it can look completely different depending on what you wear or don't wear under it Smiley

Yeah I like to wear it with black leggings underneath, although I think I may take some of the volume out of the dress...
i'll post another picture when its less big and in action! my picture doesn't give it much justice!

The dress is an amazing colour, and you looked so gorgeous in it!
The shoes and bag were also cute. Do you live in England? (Pretty dumb question..)

Turns out I gotta make my own prom dress too! Hope it comes out as lovely as yours!

Yes I like in England....

Great work!

is that Bristol in the pictures? The SS Great Britain?

...more specifically Hull. Thats the waterfront im standing in front of, where the clipper race set off from recently :-)

and thanks everyone for your kind words! This is the most comments I've had on anything i've made, makes me smile!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Prom Dress Reconstruction - Now with action pics! on: August 18, 2009 12:37:00 PM
Hi there! I posted on the help section a while back (like two years ago while back eeek!) about help for my prom dress....
I have finally found pictures of the bottom which I needed help with! HORRAHHH!
So here we go!

I started off with a 35 dress from TK Maxx. This picture is of the dress partially constructed, the boob part were attatched to the other side, with a strap going from the center of them upto the neck like an inverted halterneck, and had some sort of jewelled thing connecting the straps together just in the center of the chest. I took the jewelled thing off and swapped the boob sections round to create a halterneck that went from the far side of the chest.

I then posted to ask for some help on what to do with the bottom section of the dress.
This is what I decided on doing.... ruffling up the bottom and making it shorter!
I also redid the back of the dress but i don't have any photo's of it. I made it low backed, and used matching ribbon to make it lace up sort of like a corset. and here is the final dress!

Complete with action pictures!

My whole outfit came out real cheap too hehe.
the bag was 3 in a sale and the shoes where also only 5 in New Look.
so the whole thing came to 43! which is nothing compared to everyone else...
my friend charlotte in the purple payed 90 for her dress alone! But it is amazingly beautiful!

Thanks for reading! C&C very welcome!
