1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / For a summer day w/ sketches and finished garments(lots of pictures) on: June 16, 2008 03:40:03 PM
So i was able to take some pictures today of my most recent projects granted they are modeled on a dress form that is not my size but it is the best i can do for now since i dont have anyone to take my picture until next week. I decided to water mark the pictures of the dresses since they are my designs and will be going in a portfolio i thought it was the best idea.
so to start in chronological order:
Principle of Fit Final
imagine these on a human

so this dress was designed as a final project for my class where the garment had to fit us. i used a polyester textured chiffon and a black lace. I made a slip for underneath in purple but forgot to stay stitch so it bagged out really bad and now it fits funny. so as a warning to everyone STAY STITCH anything cut on the bias. the dress is meant to be belted and it slips on over my head
A-Line skirt

So this is just a basic a line made out of a vintage fabric looks much better on

Last but not least
Tea Dress
i was thinking about tea parties when i named this one and i think the fabric fits

This one by far is my favorite. I bought the flower fabric a few months ago to make a dress and just got around to it. i love how it turned out and looks much better on me since it was made to fit me not the form. it is very springy and fun to wear. i am so happy i found a matching purple for the waist band and bodice lining. it has a centered zipper down the back and has a rolled hem.

Thank You for looking!
2  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / A Mushroom, owl, a boat and a leaf! lots of pictures! on: June 07, 2008 04:07:39 PM
I have been embroidering a lot lately and these are a few of my most recent projects

so first up a towel for my grandma i am making her a set of towels to go with her kitchen for her 80th birthday.

next up my just finished patch work owl. to make him i used some random scraps i had around and embroidered him to a foresty fabric i bought and sew on interfacing for strength. i like how he turned out but i don't know what to do with it i am thinking  either a pouch or a brooch deal... i am not sure any opinions would be great!

Now on to the boat patch. i made this for my friend but i plan on doing more of a similar idea but nicer. i pretty much free handed this i just drew a basic outline of everything.

Last but not least the little leaf
this is about 2x3 and is on silk dupioni self lined and interfaced to keep the stitching secure. this is another one i don't know what to do with i am thinking a pin or as a necklace.. any opinions on fabric pendents? (in real life it is much more shiny and less textured and of a darker green)

thanks for looking and any suggestions!
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / embroidered patches pricing questions on: June 05, 2008 05:15:32 PM
So i started to make patches out of muslin (basic cotton fabric) that i have embroidered with different designs such as this one:

and i was thinking about selling them. i was wondering if $8 - $10 depending on the time taken for each one seems like a reasonable price.
Thank you!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Super duper knit tshirt on: May 31, 2008 02:45:22 PM
So for my intro to knit wear class for extra credit we could make a shirt out of a more unstable knit and this is what i came up with.

the fabric is a thin knit that is slightly see through hence the blue shirt.
i patterned this design my self.

so what do you think?
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Espionage Beret! on: February 07, 2008 03:55:19 PM
For awhile now i have been thinking about making a beret and when i saw Super-simple fast and easy chunky hand-knit bereton crazyauntpurl'sblog i figured i should finally make one.
So a week of procrastination and 3 hours or so of knitting later i give you the Espionage Beret! (i figured i would call it that since next week is my friend's birthday and we are all going to dress like spy's or something like that)

Yarn: one skein of wool ease chunky in eggplant
Needles: US11 and US 13
Mods: i just winged the decreases at the top because i did not have the pattern available.
6  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Question about pricing of lingerie on: October 07, 2007 09:21:47 PM
Wow i realized i have not been on craftster in a while crazy... well anyway now that i am doing crafty stuff again me and a friend have decided to start a handmade lingerie business. we are going to start off only offering underwear and then expand from there. our items will fall in a wide varitey of styles but it will all have a definate influence from the past but still be approritate for everyday wear.

So my question is how much would you pay for hand crafted underwear made out of your basic cotton fabric but that are still decorative? (i would include a picture but we don't have the products completed yet i am just doing some perliminary work.) i have an idea of how much i want to sell for but i want to see what other people think before i say what i was thinking.

Thanks so much!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / This is a public service announcement..w/ guitars! on: February 13, 2007 09:30:26 PM

8  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Some Fish and Heart Themed ATC's on: January 13, 2007 01:49:10 PM
here are some ATC's i mad when i was on my winter vacation.
this one was made using some splats of ink then i used a stamp to make the goldfish and used embossing powder to make red and have a raised surface.
this one is made from some papers and a little polymer clay transfer of the fish people that i did a while back.

these next two are just paper and 1 stamp in the background.

this one i think still needs something but i am not sure what.

10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / a Finished Forecast...with more pictures! on: October 17, 2006 10:09:52 PM
well i recently finished my Forecast from knitty.
i used knitpicks wool of the andes in asparagus.(it took 9 skiens)
i had to use size 8 needles to get the gauge.
i haven't put buttons on it yet because the ones i have i don't like for it but i found a creative way to wear it(or so i think my mom and sister think otherwise).
as seen in the picture.

it was super fun to make and took me way longer than it should have due to moving and starting college. but i am happy with it and it is warm! i can't wait to wear it.
(more pictures will be coming as soon as i get a chance to take some better ones.)
 AND here they are ( with the new button the lighting is still bad but.. i'll take what i can get)


close up of button.
update: i just realized all the last 3 pictures were the same...i fixed that up now
