1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Donor Doll on: January 17, 2016 05:13:38 AM
She'll give you her heart.

Meet Donna the Donor doll from Kazuo Ishiguro's Never Let me go.  She has a lace up stomach and a full set of needle felted organs(except bladder and kidneys because they'd be too small.

She is about 1foot long and fully posable, made from felt and hand sewn. I was going to put skin on top of her but I liked seeingthe stitching and markings.

I saw a knitted frog dissection and thought it would be awesome to make felt organs and then they needed a body to go in.

And here she is with her friends

2  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Hustle and Bustle- McCall's M6670 on: August 25, 2015 10:25:11 AM
Because what every girl needs is an outfit with a bustle!

This is a really fabulous outfit and a pretty easy pattern to follow: it just needed a bit of fixing with the lining or there would have been a few too many seams on display.
Now I just need to host an event where dressing as a Victorian is acceptable! (As far as I'm concerned that's pretty much any occaision...)

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boring Board Shorts to Snazzy Swimming Dress on: June 09, 2015 12:19:20 PM

I'm not a fan of bikinis or swimming costumes and so decided to make a swimming dress: I started out wanting to make an Edwardian-style one but they were all made of lots of heavy when wet material so went for board shorts instead. Sadly, it seems that the only polyester microfibre you can buy in the UK is for tents so I cut up some board shorts instead.

It's covered in pockets from the original shorts (mainly to hide the holes- the shorts were pretty cheap and badly made) and uses the elastic from the waist band to gather in at the back, allowing for more room to swim.  As there wasn't much room in the skirt due to the limited short material, I added some lycra pleats to stretch for kicking.

Totally ready for summer now!

6  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / Wet Felt Bead Jewellery from Horace the Sheep on: June 07, 2015 12:56:26 PM
A family friend has a pet sheep called Horace.  They gave me some fleece so I've been experimenting with wet felt beads. 

First, I dyed it with food colouring:http://apparentlysew.weebly.com/blog/wool-dying

I used Wilton food colouring gel and vinegar
Then I carded the wool with two hair brushes and we felted it into beads with warm soapy water.

Then strung it on clear nylon thread with 2mm plastic beads the silver lobster clasps and O rings.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Grace Kelly Shift Dress on: May 13, 2015 11:47:06 AM
My latest dress a black shift dress with sheer yoke and collar and side zip.

It's another from Famous Frocks and based on Grace Kelly's dress from Rear Window. 

I was a little bit nervous of the sheer fabric but it turned out ok!

This is what it's supposed to look like:

8  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Phases of the moon necklace on: May 06, 2015 10:52:51 PM
I love this!

As a Physics teacher, phases of the moon necklaces are now definitely a compulsory activity for my space topic.

They definitely won't be as pretty as yours though!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Nerdy Equation Print Summer Dress on: April 08, 2015 09:47:09 AM

As we approach the revision season, during which sitting outside and using pages of notes to keep the Sun out of one's eyes is compulsory, what more does a  fashionista want but an equation print dress?

I saw this awesome fabric on Spoonflower http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/806389 and knew that I had to make it into a summer dress: it's a backless halterneck, tied with a black ribbon, and falls to just below the knee.

Sadly, I'm not sure it will be allowed into the exam hall!
