1  Re: Borg Sweatshirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by AmberMuffinz on: January 05, 2012 11:40:37 AM
Not sure if this will help but this is what I put together before / while making this. I added notes while sewing it to make sure I didn't mess up. I originally wanted it black but I only had grey jersey knit and I wanted to use it. I think it looks just fine either way. I also changed a few things. Instead of using the green fabric to make "bias tape" around the hood I just used a piece of grey, I thought with the lining being green it would be too much. I also only used two buttons rather than four, and I think it turned out really well.

Link here since my picture got resized on this thread somehow.

2  Borg Sweatshirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by AmberMuffinz on: January 03, 2012 07:56:42 PM
I have two MS paint drawings of Borg sweatshirts I wanted to make. I finished one and I am loving it to death. I didn't use a pattern, just cut and sewed. I might add interfacing to the collar so it stands up better instead of slouching a lot. I also wanted to add "Species 5618" to the back but ... It's annoying so I won't do it for a while lol. Took me months on and off to finish it. There are a couple things that are bad with it but overall I think it looks good.

This was also the first time I lined a hood. I think it turned out really nice and I love the inside fabric. It makes the hood look really good. I just need to sew along the edges a bit more carefully so it's straight lol. Enjoy! C&C always welcome.

3  Rastafarian Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by AmberMuffinz on: January 03, 2012 07:53:38 PM
I made this Rasta hat for my cousin for Christmas. Excuse the lack of many pictures, I made it on Christmas Eve a few hours before he opened it (they wanted to open presents from us while we were there.) The picture with it on my head shows the true colors. Made from two sweaters and a scarf. I tried out a new way to make hats and it turned out fantastic. No pattern, just cut and sewed.

4  Attempt at a pleated skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by AmberMuffinz on: November 07, 2011 08:50:16 PM
I wanted to make something special for my boyfriend so I wanted to make a mini skirt! It's not as short as I wanted but he still likes it. This took me days to make simply because I only worked on it a little bit every now and then (Plus I wanted it to look somewhat professional, and I think it's one of my better projects for that) I didn't use a pattern, I just measured, cut, and sewed. I also made button holes. First time ever.

I almost forgot, here's a pic with the buttons undone. It makes it easier to put on, plus I loved the buttons. The holes are a bit messy but they're the first ones I ever made, so meh.

c&c always welcome!

5  First post, sweater hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by AmberMuffinz on: October 05, 2011 09:23:14 PM
Hey all. Been lurking around for a long time now. The past week or two I've been checking out things other people have made. I'll tell you, it's put me in a really crafty mood despite all my college work! Anyway, I've been sewing for a couple years now but I'm not super awesome amazing at it lawl.

I found a tutorial a while back (I'm sorry to say I've lost it!) and made quite a few of these hats. Finding extra large mens sweaters on mondays for a dollar at value village = hat material for days. I fell in love with this orange one, despite the fact that it poops out orange fluffs all the time. I'd suggest using a serger for making slouchy hats from sweaters. But since I'm poor... Well here you go anyway.

I messed up in a few places, I know! O: I should've folded it better but ah well! I did this one pretty quick. Here's one I did a while back. I loved it so much but I gave it to my aunt.

Also, sorry for links but it won't let me post images. sadface.
