1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / A 1950's muffintop-covering bathingsuit. on: February 04, 2009 09:33:38 PM
I'm looking for a pattern for a bathing suit like this.

I just saw Gidget again for like the upteenth time and am gonna start rearing up for summer!

Does anyone know where I might be able to find a basic pattern? All I'm finding are decayed overpriced stuff at vintage websites.

The pattern itself doesn't have to be vintage, just the style.  Smiley
2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Biden is my boyfriend on: October 01, 2008 11:10:57 AM
My mom's birthday was sept 11. She's politic-crazed right now.

She really really likes the democratic vice presidential candidate Joe biden, so i made her a shirt. Smiley

Look how happy she is!

Here's the stencil I made;

[It's got those funny lines because i scanned it from notebook paper. :/]

(My sister and I also made her little finger puppets. There one of Barack and Michelle Obama and John andCindy McCain. Cheesy )
3  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / TAKS soaps. :3 [Gift pics on page 2] on: April 29, 2008 03:06:53 PM
The Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills is this week. It's a Texas statewide mandated test that's part of the 'No Child Left Behind' business.
Students and teachers alike loathe it, so, to make the experience not so bad, I made peppermint-smelling soaps for my friends! I hear that peppermint stimulates your noodle, so I'll be buying them little mints too.

Maybe i'll make them all cute with little cards and such. Who knows!

This is my first soap project!

Some artsy-fartsy stuff;

Cooling (I'm so impatient!);

Having more fun;

The whole gang!;

I plan on continuing this; this is so much fun! Maybe someday i'll graduate from melt and pour though. Haha.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / The Perfectly Promy-Pink NIGHTMARE [New picture!] on: April 24, 2008 05:00:16 PM
 Seeing as how I've been working at the costume shop at a theme park as of late, I've had alot of costumes at my disposal.
   And seeing as how my prom was right around the corner, it seemed like the perfect idea to snatch up [completely legally. I borrowed it and they're totally aware that i did. Cheesy] one of the cutest pink petticoats they usually use for shows and make a perfect prom dress!

  The skirt was just pink satin with a black overlay, no pattern really.
  The top was made from a vinage Burda pattern, although I did end up removing the cups and opting for underwire supported jobs.

[EDIT] It's so funny that you guys pointed out the Molly Ringlwald thing, because my name actually is Molly!  Grin

  The dress [front];

  The top is supported by your run-of-the-mill plastic boning. The pink satin is actaully under a layer of the same light black meshy stuff as is on the skirt, just to give it more dimension.

  The dress[back];

  I really love the large bow in the back; you can't really see it here that well.
What was so annoying about this was that the back panel actually pops off with the bow on a series of large costume snaps we usually use for quick changes on stage.
Underneath the panel is a bunch of loops for lacing. It was so hard to sit and eat!

 I'm the ultimate procrastinator; I sewed in the finishing touches two hours before I got picked up!


  One for fun;

  And another;

  Waiting for prince charming....;

  This can't be him. o_o';


  The pink suspenders were my idea. Cheesy

  My brother does not approve of this match;


And the last one!;

  I hope you guys like it! It took me two weeks off and on and was worth it! So many people thought it was adorable and apparently the two of us became an 'it' couple. Can you believe it? Ha ha!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Dress forms on: August 28, 2006 05:43:28 AM
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good dress form?

I've been saving up for an adjustable one, given that I've seen alot of people with them, but someone told me they're horrible.

Help pwease?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Orange/polka-dot ruffly skirt...pants....something. >_< on: August 01, 2006 07:04:44 PM
They used to be these;

Look at that mirror! Holy cow!

Ok, now those not-fun pant are now this;

Made from extra material from a halloween costume. Woot woot.
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Ex-Boyfriend Dress! x_x on: August 01, 2006 06:57:58 PM
I wear it when I feel bitter about how much of a douche he was. Sad

It's made from a shirt he wore and a shirt I bought just because it was a band he liked. Bah.
My bitterness spawned this little number.



I can't help but think this is an unhealthy way to deal with sadness. Oh well. <3 sewing.  Grin
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pollution=cuteness! on: July 23, 2006 03:48:02 PM
I painted up an old shirt for a friend. It started out as just being me painting all over it, but turned into a preachy anti-pollution shirt.

How can you pollute if it makes the clouds sad?!

I might add some other stuff. Maybe some lace someplace.

Oh! Edit! Action shot! She's wearing it!
9  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Those pearly whites! on: July 06, 2006 10:44:20 AM
My friend, John, has recently had his wisdom teeth extracted from his mouth. He's asked me to make some neato jewelry from them.

There's one problem. See, John is a dude. Dudes don't normally wear girl jewelry. Therein lies my predicament!

Does anyone have any idea for how I'm supposed to make uber-cool wisdom tooth jewelry for a guy?
10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Beware! It's myspace related! (Not a shameless myspace plug.) on: June 28, 2006 08:30:31 AM
I made a layout for my myspace. It's all craftster-i-tized. I put it on a fake account so it's simple and clean.


If anyone wants the code for their myspace, message me and I'll scrounge it up for you.  Smiley
