2  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Cthulhu plushie on: February 13, 2007 11:02:43 AM
Ok. So my roommate bought her boyfriend a 70 dollar wireless computer mouse for valentine's day. She said she didn't think it could get any dorkier than that...but I proved her wrong. I made my boyfriend a Cthulhu plushie.

I am not a stuffed animal maker. usually I stick to clothes. So this was a bit of a challenge for me. But I'm mostly proud of how it turned out:

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Nintendo DS case on: February 12, 2007 09:44:42 PM
So...I haven't bought anything for myself in a while, and I decided that a pink DS was just the right gift! However, once I bought the thing, I didn't have any money for a case. No worries! I am crafty! I'll just make my own!

Well, lucky for me I had some pink knit jersey fabric around and lots of carboard boxes. (My cats love playing in boxes, so i keep them around. In fact, they gave me dirty looks while I cut this one up.) I also just bought the cute cherry buttons on Friday. these plus my sewing machine and a little sobo glue gave me:

here are two pics of the inside...one with the ds, the other without.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my restoration pirate dress. on: December 15, 2005 07:10:17 PM
so, about four years ago i was making a restoration style jacket for a show at my high school. one day i go in the costume shop and find that someone has cut up one of my pieces. i guess someone really didn't like me, cause i found all the cut up pieces and i could place them back together like a puzzle. i was able to keep the lining pieces and use different material for the outside to finish the jacket. well, i kept the old pieces and i figured it was about time i did something with them. so i turned this men's jacket into what i like to call my restoration pirate dress.


i cut off the sleeve bottoms and gathered them up a bit. the blue material is left over from a friend's halloween costume a few years ago. she went as alice in wonderland, and we bought a tacky 80's bride's maid dress and cut it short.

oh man. it took me forever to figure out the darts on the front. the whole left piece there has been put back together. that was the piece that was all cut up. plus it was cut for a man with a much longer torso than me. i had to move the armholes down and cut a lot off the top.

the piece that went missing after the cut was the strip of blue lace on the right front piece. i had to kind of invent that little blue thing to cover my boob.

anyway. i'm really pleased with how it came out. it looks really good as just a shirt worn over jeans as well. i'm not quite done with it. i want to add a few more snaps to keep it shut, and i haven't finished all the edges along the bottom. also, i have more of that blue material, and i'd like to make a skirt/petticoat to go underneath it. there all four massive slits in this thing, and i don't want anything to fall out or be revealed when i were this.

so, if you're ever walking around chicago and you see a girl dressed as a pirate, stop over and say hello.

i love that hat. very cute. i think some sort of star wars related project is on my list of things to do soon. also, am i mistaken, or is your icon the fire monument in london? i have a picture from the top of the stairs there very similar to your icon pic.
