1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Holy _(insert noun here)_ Batman! on: May 07, 2006 11:04:04 AM
So... I'm obsessed. I decided to turn my obsession into something wearable.

I started off with some batman bedsheets I got at the goodwill, and tried to duplicate what SallySparks did here:

But it looked more like a toga party dress than a cocktail party dress. So I caved in a bought some walmart batman fabric.

Here's how it turned out after several late night sewing sessions: Please tell me that you think. Thanks.

3  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / My old sketches- Please comment on: December 19, 2005 08:40:38 PM
I did this one for my boyfriend for Valentine's day '04- I'm fairly proud because I think the drawing of me actually looks like me and the drawing of him actually looks like him. But it was really late when I did the writing on the bottom and I mispelled "Valentine's"- I didn't notice until over a year later when my mom pointed it out.

I did this one during History Class as we watched the 2nd Presidential Debate- in between writing notes of course! It's a caracature- their heads are supposed to be hot air balloons.

Here's a sketch of Reese Witherspoon:

I've never done a Craft-a-long before but I thought this might be a cool idea for one.
6  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Toilet paper Johnny Depp costume!!!! Yup, I said it. on: May 10, 2005 05:02:55 PM
Well, let me give you some background on this creation. Last Thanksgiving I went to my boyfriend's grandmother's house for a family get-together. Fun! We were there for quite a while- and I got emo about something or other that his family had done- so I was crying- my boyfriend being a guy, grabbed the nearest roll of toilet paper to dry my eyes. Once I stoped crying- we were still bored, so some how we started making random things out of toilet paper. I decided to make my boyfriend into Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean. There was also a bride, a hula girl, and a ninja- I'll try to find those pics if you want.

Here's my sexy t.p.ed hubby!!!

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My dorothy apron- but I don't cook on: May 09, 2005 08:21:40 PM
Here's an apron I made a while ago- for no real purpose other than sewing practice and just to say I own an apron. It's made out of blue gingham, white eyelet trim, plastic strawberry buttons, and love. Awe.

My floor wearing it:


Me wearing it with matching strawberry fru-fru skirt I'm working on:


And a close up of strawberry-eyelet goodness:


OH!! And ribbon- ribbony goodness!
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Roper t-dress on: May 09, 2005 08:15:24 PM
You can't really tell, but the shirt says Roper on it- which is a great band. It was made out of a big t-shirt- but not this long- I actually used the fabric from the sleeves to add fabric into the mid-section. And for the straps I used an elastic trim from another tank top that had gotten too small.

Here's it with jeans:


And here it is without:

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Here's another way too short skirt! on: May 09, 2005 08:11:38 PM
I promise I'm working on some longer ones that I need to post!

This was made out of a sheet I got at a yard sale a while back:


10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I hereby coin the term t-skirt on: May 09, 2005 08:09:14 PM
Here are two t-shirt into t-skirts recons I've done:

The top part on both skirts is actually made out of the sleeves. The front and back are each one sleeve- after seem ripped- to lay flat- sewn to the other. If you need me to make a tute to explain I can- b/c it really does save a lot of fabric.

The first one is a really soft worn big red t-shirt found at goodwill for .75.


Here's a close up of the broken black heart that I made out of black t-shirt scraps:


The second was made out of an old grey gold tourney t-shirt of my dad's. After I was done I splattered paint on it b/c I thought it looked too plain.


Here's a close up of the paint splatter:


Please tell me what you think!
