Thank you for your comments everyone, it's great to hear feedback from people who craft amazing things all the time!!

Julietalpha, yeh I don't think the Aussies like it much but all the more reason to wear it!!

Merricat17, yes free machining is the best!! So much possibility, but a bugger to do with a machine that has its own mind!

Nushybum, I agree with the PM bit- he is constantly in your face, every single thing he does makes its way to the paper. So old.

hehe did you make the pattern yourself or did you use a pattern? if you did, which one?

I used McCall's 3958, but I just used it to get the basic outline and then I adapted it myself, it was pretty simple to make but then again I didn't use boning or have lining or anything.
The most time consuming bit was sewing those bloody words on!

Thank you for your comments guys, its really nice to hear it from the people who sew all the time, so can understand how much time going into things!!

The boning.. yes I messed that up a bit. I cut the lengths I needed and pushed them into the gaps between the seam and the zigzagged finish on my corset. Which worked if I didnt move, I wore it out and the whole night the boning kept coming out because I hadn't attached it properly..

Any ideas how I can attach the ends of the boning so they don't keep moving up and down?!

Being one of a few Brits in Australia I decided it was time to be patriotic and celebrate my Queen...
(I know the Queen of England is also the Queen of Australia...but...it made sense at the time...)

Before it was just a plain denim skirt... and after I attacked it with my free machine embroidering it was a hot pink tribute to home. I free handed it, so it's a little messy but unless you look closely you can't really see.

The words are kind of on the right hip. I love that pink thread, I have been waiting so long to use it on something!

Thanks for looking Cheesy

So my six hour corset making started at about 11am, and I'm pretty happy with the results Cheesy. (Ignore the loose threads hanging down the bottom, they are gone now!)

I got the No Love, No Hope thing from a user on here, who has a tattoo of it on her wrists.. can't remember the name but Thanks! Good inspiration, couldn't think what else to write on it!

This it the front of it, which I'm going to add boning too, to make it more structured.

And this is another shot of the words on the back. I free machine embroidered them on, hence them being not so perfect (free hand needling is a nightmare :S)

Well I'm going to hit the dancefloor with it tommorrow night on its maiden voyage.. hopefully it will be good and stay up...I know what strapless tops are like... Undecided

Thank for looking - any comments will be mucho appreciated! x

Hi, thanks for your comments, much appreciated! I would make a tut if I wasn't right in the middle of emigrating (10 days!!), so all my sewing stuff is in the middle of the ocean being shipped over.. haha so it's kinda hard to do much crafting..!

I'm not sure what scrim is exactly, its just like a very light, very thin cotton fabric, which has kinda of been weaved, it looks like a fishermans net if you look closely. Sorry thats the best I can do to explain! Im sure another craftster will know exactly..!!

Here is my Rip and Tear bag I made..

I made a series of little bags (following the wonderful tutorial by thejordy- thanks!). This one was made with scrim over newspaper. I free machine embroidered the words and ziggy bits over it then attacked it with scissors. You can't see the tears on the photos but they are there! Then I went over with oil pastels to make the brown bits.  Cheesy

Wow, great bags, I'm very impressed!! Thanks for the tutorial! There is on thing I am stuck on though... making the zip ends neat..how do you do it? and the strap bit, when I made mine I had a bit of a struggle making it all look neat, had to handsew the straps on. How has every1 else done it?
