11  Re: Rainbow Swap Gallery!!! in The Swap Gallery by spydie on: September 03, 2007 07:19:14 PM

I really wish I could have gotten a close up of the items, but my camera is being a douche. (As you can tell, It likes to make things white).  I believe a majority of the items are recycled!  The purse/tote (which I am totally using already) is crocheted from bedsheets, the guitar pics (in a rainbow of colors) look like they are made from old gift cards, there are two cards (and somehow one did not make it into the picture) one with a fish and the other has pictures that my swap partner (pinokeeo) took herself, a rainbow postcard, a box, and two bowl/container things -- one looks like its made from card stock or some sort of cardboard, and the other one is from cds.  I love everything dearly.  My guitar is very happy that I'm not playing it with coins anymore, hehe.

12  Death to School Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by spydie on: August 29, 2007 06:04:02 PM
Ok, I've always wanted a coffin backback, but the ones I've made have never turned out all of that great.  I came up with the idea for a coffin messenger bag instead!  I really like how this turned out, but I think I'm going to make another one in a week or so because its definately not perfect and I'd like to make a few adjustments.  If anyone wants a tutorial, I can take pictures while I make the next one.

13  Rainbow Bag -- Needs Embelishment -- No Lookey pinokeeo!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by spydie on: August 23, 2007 07:52:01 AM
Ok, I made this bag for the Rainbow swap for pinokeeo (I'm serious, stop looking >.<).

Anyways, it seems a bit plain.  Any ideas?  (I didn't know whether to post this in Completed or Discussions & Questions)

The colors of the straps look a bit off to the fabric in the photo, but they do match, minus the pink.

14  Cardigan and Shirred Top (EGL) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spydie on: July 19, 2006 01:03:39 PM
I made a few really cute things from heart prints recently.  I love them dearly.

My cardigan type top...I haven't decided if I'm going to put buttons on it or not though.  If anyone is interested, I took pics while I was making it and I could do a quick tutorial.

My Shirred top.  Please excuse my bra showing through and the aweful lighting and photography.

15  EGL Sewing Frenzy (more to come soon!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by spydie on: July 12, 2006 09:36:03 PM
I have been on a sewing frenzy for the past two days...and I have came to share the fruits of my labor...
The underskirt:
Base is made from basic white broadcloth and ruffles made from white eyelet fabric.
Both fabrics were free because my best friend's mother is awesome.
Overskirt #1 (back)
Shown with underskirt. Made from a pretty red, pink, and white plaid.
 It has some sparkly stuff in it but its not "OMG SHINEY!!! It looks really cute!
I added a bow in the back, though you can't really see it because it blends in alot.
 I bought it the other day at joann's for $0.80 a yard.
Close up: Front:
Overskirt #2 (Back)
Worn by my chair with underskirt again.
Fabric bought at Joann's for $0.80 a yard as well.
 Has a bow in the back too.
Close up:
I hiked it up in the front and put little bows on it. I think it looks absolutely darling!
Full Skirt #1
Made from the same fabric pictured above.
Full skirt #2
You can see the sparkleyness of the fabric better in this picture.
Trimmed with lace and bows.

My friend's mother has given me a TON of loliable fabric and I just bought 10 different kinds at Joann's (for under $20 too!) so I will be sewing up a storm in the next couple of weeks.
 I have enough fabric to make at least 25 more skirts, 5 pairs of bloomers, 3 petticoats, 9 pairs of kodona/dandy pants, 8 dresses, and a few blouses. (As well as all of the accessories such as headdresses and hairbows and such.)
My friend and I are messing around drafting patterns currently.&nbsp; We're opening an online store in the near future, so stay tuned!!!
