21  Re: one of my first few attempts at reconing a shirt, help needed! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by spaz2phreek on: May 30, 2006 10:26:15 PM
to make a hood....

this is roughly the shape you need.

Except that might not work with a boat neck very well....

I think it sounds like it will be neat the way it is. Hmm...
Here's the idea I have. Going with the Wolverine theme, maybe slash the sleeves up a little. Here is a fabulous paint job of what I'm not saying very well.

See the red lines? cut there. So you have sleeves but with slashes. Or maybe that's a totally lame idea. It's the best I've got right now.

Anyway, hope that was some help.

22  Re: Homemade Holiday Cards--Let's See 'Em! in Winter Holidays by spaz2phreek on: December 07, 2005 07:22:18 AM
I've been making holiday cards for years but never actually getting around to mailing them. So this year I have plenty and just have to fill 'em out and mail them. There all very diferent so here are a few of my faves. Get ready for lots of pics of lousy crappy camera quality.........

I attached the vellum message with a couple tiny holes from an itty bitty hole punch and some light blue thread.

You can't see the coolness of this card in a photo. The cardstock has a little silver glitter in it & the stocking is made from white felt & dark red suede cloth.

This snowman stamp is one of my all time favorite stamps. I lightly shade around the edges with colored pencils.

Another one of my fave stamps. Added a little gold rick rack for pizazz.

Like I said, they're all very different so to post pics of them all would be silly. So these are my faves.

I've been moving....chaos abounds....
anyway....here's some pics I took of what I sent GOTHMOM

The pendant (I don't know what it is either) was done with a mold taken from women's broach from the 18th century. This was my third piece of jewelery ever. I wasn't sure what to make since my original idea proved to be too time consuming. August is Faire time here so I headed to the Faire for inspiration and found a vendor who lived in my area who was willing to help me make a piece of jewelery. I'd already taken a jewelery course in high school so I knew the basics. The one I sent was my third attempt and the first one that worked. It was a lot of fun and I made a new Faire friend. I also sent to coins that I had left from Faire cuz I thought they were neat and I knew I'd lose them in the move anyway. There's a guy at our Faire who pounds the coins out during the Faire in an (almost) accurate way. Has different molds that Faire go-ers can choose. I meant to take a picture of it to send but forgot the camera.

Anyway, it was fun for my first swap! In the future, I won't join a swap while I'm moving or starting a new job. Thanks Writer-78 for doing this swap!

black is hard to get good pics of....anyway....and my camara is being difficult so you'll have to use your imagination with the close up of the leather button but they are really think and sturdy buttons for just being leather.

26  Redneck Woman meets Punk Rock! in CHALLENGE 2 ENTRIES by spaz2phreek on: June 26, 2005 12:56:40 PM
Not at all my style but it was fun to make! I felt sorta punk meets Redneck woman in this outfit.

Shirt>>>>(sorry the pics are sideways) (those are my bra straps, not part of the shirt)

Started out as plain button up shirt. Some one here did a button up halter awhile back. I combined that with a tut from ohmystars to be my inspiration for this. It was already fitted but I did have to add some more darts around the boobage. Folded plain black satin ribbon over the edge and stitched.

started out as plain denim skirt. Boring. Added lots of detail work.

used buttons, lace, small bolts, ribbon, fabric pens, ect.

I didn't do anything to these but they completed the outfit (even though you can't really see them).


Thanks for looking!

27  Black & pink (sorta) punk outfit for 2 year old! in CHALLENGE 2 ENTRIES by spaz2phreek on: June 26, 2005 12:38:35 PM
This sweet little girl is my future sis-in-law. She's 2 1/2 years old and mommy dresses her like a girly-girl. Princess stuff, flowery, glittery, fur trim "cheerleader" shirt....yuck. So I made her this little outfit.
(Shirt says "Don't Worry, Be Happy")
SHIRT>>> i liked the shirt the way it was so i just snipped at the collar a bit, shortened the sleeves and added lace detail.

SKIRT>>>The skirt is made from another shirt. I didn't take a before pic so here's a bad MS paint rendition of the shirt.

Cut out two rectangle pieces, turned them so the lines were vertical, added some black knit on the sides (so it would fit), simple casing, elastic, viola!
"Don't worry, Be happy" Shirt---$0.99
striped shirt- $0.75
other-elastic, small bit of lace, black knit scraps

Thanks for looking!

28  SHOES!!! in Shoes: Completed Projects by spaz2phreek on: May 31, 2005 05:25:10 PM

I love shoes....
I used Bic permanant markers instead of sharpies cuz sharpies have a weird look to them if used on a sorta glossy surface. I screwed the boots up bad so just colored them completely except the one part that's checkered. The other shoes were my second stab at checkered shoes.
The button shoes....they started out preppy lightblue and white with a bow. EW. Bow came off, colored over the light blue with black Bic. Also colored over blue line on sole with Bic. Black scuffs everywhere. New idea. Button jar is now half empty.
I have some black heels I want to do something to but I don't know what yet....
Okay, thanks for looking.

29  Re: My first post: Mini Waitress Style Apron in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by spaz2phreek on: May 15, 2005 11:10:06 PM
simple. go to any fabric store or craft section at Wal-Mart and ask for bias-tape.
here's some pics.
this is bias tape in the package...

this is what you do with it (except you would sew, not just pin)....

Oh, and I might snag your (or your aunt's idea) for myself.
Do post a pic when you finish, if you can. good luck!

30  Old jeans gonna be new top...maybe... in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by spaz2phreek on: May 01, 2005 05:41:43 PM
This isn't even my style or won't be but this just cam to me in a fit of madness. All I've done so far is cut the legs off at the knees and cut the inseam. I put it on to see if it would fit (too lazy to measure) and it did. Here's a pic of that.

Next I'll do the whole skirt thing with the ripping of seams and sewing so it all lays flat. then I'll add some darts. I'm thinking I may have to add a zipper or something up one side to make it easy to get off and on. Hmm... But yeah...Gonna give it a go. We'll see...
