1  FIBER ARTS / Weaving: Discussion and Questions / Cheapest to by/Easy to make loom? on: May 21, 2014 06:56:06 AM
So if you want to dabble in weaving, how do you get into it without buying a big loom?
Is there a cheap and easy option?
What kind of weaving is there available?
2  FIBER ARTS / Spinning: Discussion and Questions / Apron for spinning? on: May 19, 2014 03:27:57 AM
Hi I've only been spinning for about a fortnight and I've noticed I get lots of flyaway fibre on my lap when spinning on drop spindle.
I was wondering does anyone here use an apron? What material do you use for the apron cotton, wool, fleecey stuff etc.

So here they are my regency shoes.
Post on my blog with more details

The ribbon trim is all pleated by hand. I painted the shoe itself with acrylic paint... and hot glued everything on. The cameos are from a card decorating kit.
Hope you like them.

Do you need advice about the coat or where to start with Loli fashions in general? OR all of the above? Smiley

Both would be lovely. Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / Advice on lolita fashions on: March 28, 2014 08:03:00 AM
I love victorian styles and I like the steampunk styles....but they seem to costumey for everyday or involve having to have historical underpinnings.
When I was looking for a 'victorian' coat I came across lolita stuff. I think it looks rather cool.
Can anyone suggest where to start? I wouldn't want to go ultra short...I'm more comfortable with just below the knee to calf length.
This is [url"stitchintimeandspace.blogspot.co.uk/2013/01/1950s-tartan-skirt-butterick-5556.html"]my tartan skirt[/url] I thought I might be able to use that pattern....modified .

Wow, that came together quickly!  Good job, can't wait to see the patchwork blouse.  Will you use the same fabrics?
The blouse will be in red but with a yoke in green, collar in the mustard, cuffs and patchpocket in the floral pattern.
9  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / My TimeLady Sonic Screwdriver on: March 01, 2014 12:13:14 PM
I pondered where would be best to post this...but its a costume accessory so posted it in costumes. I made this sonic screwdriver for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebration at the excel. I was cosplaying a Femme!Eight.

Started off with old lip gloss container. Marble, a necklace I got in a sale for 1, copper coin, peice of vinal cut from an old bag, cheap earings.  
Hot glue gun, superglue, enamel paint (for airfix kits).
I started off with a lip gloss - the kind with a colour and a clear protective gloss on the other end. The one above I'd had for years...I tend to do that with makeup as I don't wear it often. Anyway firstly I got some enamel paint, the kind used for airfix kits and painted the centre where the brand name was....then I glued a copper coin to each end to make it stable enough to stand up.

I'd taken apart some jewellry I got for cheap in a sale. Glued marble to the 'ring' from the jewellery then glued that to one end. I then glued an earing onto the centre as my 'button'. And glued on the chain to decorate the clear end.
Voila! One sonic screwdriver...or sonic lipgloss maybe? Wink
