1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Flower Headband from Pink Cotton on: December 11, 2009 07:51:00 PM
Wow, I've been away for so long. I already took 4 finals, and I have one more next week. But as a mid-final crafty project, I decided to make this!

Sorry about the webcam image. I'll post more when my finals are over! I used this tutorial: http://katiedid.squarespace.com/katie-did-journal/2009/5/1/tutorial-flower-collar.html

I made 4 "flowers" from some pink cotton and sewed them together. My fabric squares were around 3" by 3" Then I attached it to the headband! I think I'll try a lighter fabric next time.

C&C welcome :]

2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Not your average Snow White! [completed, and img heavy] on: October 14, 2007 03:05:39 PM
This year for Halloween, I decided I want to be Snow White.

Here's what it looks like so far. I did NOT make the shirt, I bought it... But I am planning on making light blue poofy (bigger) sleeves, with the red tear drop shapes. (You know, like Snow White's sleeve Cheesy ) [Yay for re-cons]

I've finished! I ended up thrifting for a light blue and a red dress shirt. Then I cut them up to make the sleeves, and the tear drop shaped decorative bits. It was quite a bother to pin and sew the sleeves. (My mom helped me get started). Then I found fabric glue and glued the red bits on.

I also made the headband (covered an old one w/ red ribbon), and made the tutu...

Tutorial for the tutu provided by the lovely ambrosialove on Flickr. (http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/in/photostream/)
I love her so much for providing this tutorial.

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Grey Jersey Dress [1st post//pics] on: December 01, 2006 08:49:43 PM
This is the first clothing article that isn't pajama pants! Smiley I've lurked for a long time, and have posted in the shoe forum. But I had an itch to sew something today, and found this grey jersey fabric. So I made this. It took me around 1.5 hours. Without a pattern... I liked https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=115065.0 idea, so I basically referenced that.

It's almost exactly the same as hers, but I didn't do a band to attach the skirt, I just sewed it together. And it's totally not fitted, so it's droopy in places... =D And it's halter-esque in the back. I suck at taking pictures of my back Smiley

Comments and feedback are totally appreciated!

Sorry some photos are sideways.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Paper Bag Princess! on: October 26, 2006 08:16:05 PM
Oh man, do I love last minute costumes.

Work called me yesterday, and told me I'd better have a costume. So I had less than 4 hours to come up with a spectacular costume.

I ran to RONA and bought a pack of 5 paper bags (for leaves). Who knew they were HUGE? Anyways. They're so big that one fits me. (Which is amazing). And I made the crown out of a used envelope. Smiley Taped the crown to a headband, and voila.

I took this picture last night. Today, at work, I had smudges on my face too.

This costume took 40 minutes and it was under $2. Bwahaha

(I hope it's in the right forum :/ )

5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Bees and Flowers (Sequel to "Dino Lurve") on: September 02, 2006 05:29:44 PM
I got bored today, and saw that my old post had received more comments. I've been busy through the summer, and now have a couple days before school starts. So I picked up those Sharpies and attacked my "new" pair of Converses (Relatively new, since July)... This is the result~  Grin

This is the sequel to Dino Lurve. Here's the https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=92152.0 link! Smiley

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jellyfish *Cnidiria* Tee *First post* on: April 24, 2006 01:03:13 PM
I had a conversation with a friend about making biology related shirts for our final. So the night before the final, I had the idea of making a jellyfish shirt, so I cut some ribbon, sewed it on. Cut a circular piece of checkered fabric, sewed that on, and finally attatched 2 black buttons for eyes. I managed to finish it within an hour, while watching The O.C. Haha, I hope I did ok on that final  Wink

Here are 2 pics I took:

Oh yeah, the jellyfish was on the back of my shirt
