1  Packing tape and paper corset (picture-heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by afallows on: October 26, 2006 03:44:57 PM
I had to make a "body image collage" for this class I'm taking on Feminine Sexuality. I was going to do the typical thing about blah blah blah I hate this and that about my body and yeah, the media sucks and blah blah blah, but then I realised that I actually am pretty darn happy with how I look, so I decided to celebrate that instead. Collage-style.

This is the front:

And this is the back:

And, for fun, a few pictures of it on! (Yes, I am completely narcissistic. But it's AWESOME.)

This one is blurred, but is an attempt at getting a side shot, so you can see how it goes.

It only took me about an hour to make... I built it right on to myself, and then realised that I had started too early, and so was stuck wearing it for a grand total of 6 hours. ah well. I cut it off me afterwards and turned it into a corset. It's surprisingly comfortable to wear, and actually is sort of supportive. I've already gotten requests for another one, which will be better made, since I won't be building it onto myself. For this one I used torn up strips of magazine paper, starting with some ads from W magazine that were printed on slightly thicker paper, but it would be really easy to use absolutely anything.

2  I made lace! in Knitting: Completed Projects by afallows on: September 19, 2006 12:22:36 AM
I've been bopping around Craftster for a while, but I'm so technology-inept that this is my first actual post (hopefully of many) that contains ACTUAL IMAGES OF OBJECTS. Be still, my heart.

Anyway, what I'm so excited about is that I took this pattern: http://www.straw.com/cpy/cpy9612.html
and with the combination of a long car trip and a lot of profanity managed to actually stop doing whatever it was that I was doing wrong when I knit lace and   actually made something that didn't make me want to gnash my teeth in irritation:

Apologies for the bad picture... again, I'm technology-inept, and only have a camera phone. Which I just figured out how to use a couple days ago. But look! It's lace! I reversed the direction of the patten and made a garter stitch end border. The scarf itself is about 5 1/2 feet long, but I'm thinking of finding some way to incorporate the colour burgundy into it, as I find it kind of bleh right now. But who cares?! I made lace!

hey, thanks for the tutorial!  it was exactly what i needed to make this one for my friend.  Smiley

That's awesome!!! How did you get the eyes? Did you print them on, or were they already there?

The sleepmasks in general are awesome, btw. Bagheraa, I'm sure your family will look grand on the plane. SarahFroggy, thanks for the tute!
