31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Psychobilly pencil skirt ***NOW WITH TUTORIAL*** on: May 13, 2005 10:18:27 AM
My friend makes these and sells em on ebay, but not in *ahem* big butt sizes, so i finally made my own:
Heres the front:
It has a patch made by honeyshop13 (on ebay...) on the front

Heres the back, you can kinda see the black spider webs on each side:

The pictures didnt come out as good as they should have, maybe some fishnets and high heels would make em better! HAHA!
Anyway, you get the idea...the fabric is a bit stiff too, so it needs some loosenin up time.
Oh yea, and im not sure if i like the heart patch on it now or not...what do you think?

Okay, so heres the little Tutorial You all wanted:

Well, theres the pictures...haha, cant read it much...i'll type it out:

1. Measure your waist and divide by 4
2.  Fold your fabric in half and (with that measurment), draw a line a little more (for seam allouance).
Draw an outline for half the skirt and cut 2 out.  This will be your front and back
3.  Sew sides together and hem top and bottom
4.  Lay skirt flat with sides out, and cut the back pannel in half.  This is going to be the slit and zipper spot
Now hem what you just cut and sew the zipper on.  Im not good at doing zippers the professional way, so I shouldnt explain how I do it... The zipper you'll want to use should be about half the skirt length so you can have a nice slit in the back.  The length of the skirt depends on you...I make it go just a bit past my knees.
5.  Tapper the skirt from the knees up.  Just keep going until it fits snug but still leg room.
6.  You can add spider webs or whatever you want...cherry patches...i dunno...lace trim is fun too!

***Next skirt I make, I'll take pics and make a decent tutorial!***
32  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Favoritest Bondage skirt and shirt! on: May 13, 2005 10:04:30 AM
Ok, so I made this a while back, but Im still in love with it. Its got 3 straps on one side and a pub towel (Blackthorn Cider!) on the other. It totally rocks my socks off.

I made this too outta stretchy zebra denim fabric and some zippers. The straps are my favorite. Ive got loads and loads of d rings and dog clips layin around, I was putting them on everything for a while!
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My newest skirt- Camo on: May 03, 2005 09:31:35 AM

Okay, so i spent about 2 hours the other night making this skirt (no, i dont use patterns, i hate em!)
I love how it turned out!!! And I just thought Id share it with everyone!
34  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Cherry & Leopard Picture Frames on: April 28, 2005 12:13:10 PM

Im not sure if this is the right category for these, but I thought Id share some picture frames I recently made. I made stencils for each and just added a little paint.
35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Skullerfly Hair clips and other punk/psycho hair stuff...FIRST POST...(pic heavy on: April 28, 2005 10:42:32 AM
Okay, so i just found this site while Im sitting here at work, and was very excited about it, and had to post something. (problem is, is that im at WORK and i only have a few things up on my photobucket account)...
But anyway, I make these and sell em up on ebay...and keep a pair of all of em for myself...of course! anyway, heres the pics! Tell me what you think!

I got the idea for these from my son. He had a pair of those plastic vampire teeth layin around and i thought how cool it would be to make hair clips out of them! These are just sculpy attached to a clip and painted.

I got the idea for these from tattoos...i love em!!!

This was just sheer bordum.

and the idea for this was from cavemen. or something.

So I get bored a lot, can you tell?
