31  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Isn't this too violent for a little boy?...shorts on: October 02, 2005 09:43:20 PM
Had to come up w/ a b-day pres for Boy's friend's birthday..

His name is Nashringa..

This is Nashringa..

So..I made him some shorts:

(The pocket looks wonky, but it's not...it was taken from a funny angle..and you can't see the cool jagged teeth detail!)
(Ignore the wrinkles...I hate ironing!!)

*fixed the spelling*

It's not completely professional, but I think it looks cool! I used an Ottobre pattern (a Finnish pattern mag), and I love it, but darn these detailed European designer patterns! Oy!

32  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Stripey top! on: August 14, 2005 11:36:14 PM
I have been feeling stripey lately, so when I saw this tut https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=25124.0 I just had to make something similar!

I used a $2 stretch cotton, and some ribbon I had laying around, and then just winged it, with a general idea gathered from the aforementioned post. It's funny how clothes look when they are fit specifically for your shape! LOL

Anyway, I absolutely love it, and it came out perfect:

Witness my accidently perfect stripe matching  Tongue The angle makes me look like a tank, though Roll Eyes :

(Ignore the wrinkles..I have been wearing it all day, and couldn't be bothered to straighten them out Grin  Oh yeah, and the unfolded laundry in the background..ahem!)


33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Simple Plum Blossom Necklace on: August 13, 2005 08:34:29 AM
My first Craftster craft, and it's a necklace! Usually I sew...

Anyway! Found this awesome cloisonne plum blossom, in a soft orange with a green center, and at the same time, came across these little square green glass beads, with an orange lining (sounds wierd, but they look really cool) which matched amazingly. So...

The main bead was hollow, with gaps between the petals, and I was instantly inspired. Mini tut:

4 metres thin waxed cord
2 med jump hoops
1 clasp(I used a spring hoop)
1 main bead with large hole
8 complementing smaller beads

Measure the cord to make four strands, and cut. For each side, thread a jump hoop on two strands, and fold them in half, with the jump hoop at the folded end. Make two of these. Take all ends of all four strands and thread them through the large bead, and tie them all into a knot, at the length you want your necklace to fall. On the ends after the big knot, thread a small bead on each strand, varying the height of each bead, and knot after each one. Trim all ends. To wear, attach the spring hoop to one of the jump hoops.

Hope this is clear!
