1  Two Summer Dresses in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by krissy_bass on: August 26, 2012 03:17:14 PM
I started getting into sewing again this summer, but haven't created anything from scratch before. I decided to try to create some patterns and see how they would work out. I used some leftover fabric for the blue one, and some new patterned fabric for the second. I'm thinking that the patterned dress may look better with a different color ribbon, and I may take down the front of it some more since it's pretty high up on my chest. Any pointers for a first time dressmaker?

2  Onigiri - YUMM!! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by krissy_bass on: September 27, 2009 03:14:15 PM
Here are my first few batches of onigiri. The first batch had salmon in the center, the second batch (the ones with the flowers ) have crab meat in the center. I followed the instructions on the back of the Nishiki rice for the cooking instructions, but I was proud that they came out pretty because I hardly ever cook.

The crab batch:

First batch, round:

Sorry for the terrible pictures.

3  Re: Freezing the clay? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by krissy_bass on: September 06, 2007 08:55:24 AM
I'm guessing that this is not a bakeable clay, I had the EXACT same thing happen with some clay I had received as a gift. My clay lit on fire, then proceeded to light my toaster oven on fire, I had to throw mine out too Sad. It seemed to be like a polymer clay and did not air-dry, but it definitely didn't like to be on fire.

I did some research and it looks like my clay was SUPPOSED to be bakeable, I used this stuff here...

Maybe if your clay was too close to the heating part of the oven (mine was the top) it caught some of the chemicals on fire? Mine burned from the top and that might be what happened.

4  Re: bringing in the butt/crotch o' pants in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by krissy_bass on: March 16, 2006 10:41:17 AM
Ok, I dont know if this will work for the specific pair of pants that you have, but I have this problem alot when I buy pants because My hips are larger than my butt area, so I always have alot of sag. It depends on your body type if you can do this or not.

1) Flip the pair of pants inside-out, if there is a curve-ish area around the outsides, it will be easier to do, but basically you want the largest in-take to be in the loose area.

2) I have included a poorly drawn diagram to show you about the area you want to sew. What I basically do, is when they're flipped out, make a gradual in-sew with my sewing machine that gently curves in from the original seam, but I dont cut anything until I see if they are tight enough, and if you want, you can even leave them with the extra area if you want in case you want to take it out later.

And I'm sorry if you cant see the picture, everything decides to resize itself Sad

And also, pretend the pants in the picture are inside-out.

If you have any questions, yell at me and I"ll try to help, if you're interested.

6  Funky shorts/pants combo...Who'd like to show me what you've got? in Clothing Sewalongs by krissy_bass on: September 22, 2005 12:56:01 PM
I know this may look ridiculous, but I've been thinking about pants and shorts at the same time...
So here's what I came up with...and I'd like to challenge you to see if you'd be able to come up with a strategy that would work to make these.

They can be drawstring, elastic, whatever, probably best worn above the knees so they dont fall down, although they'd look really good above the knees, and the shorts would be matching, the same pair of jeans that the bottom comes from.  The picture on the right is a drawing I did a while back that I found that uses the same concept.

SO if you feel compelled, I will try it too, see how many different working patterns we can get of these funky pants shorts combo!!

8  The Product of Lacey things and boredom, A Skirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by krissy_bass on: August 30, 2005 08:06:10 AM
I've had a pretty purpley reddy sheet and I saw this reaaallly pretty lacey fabric at Wal-mart, but it was expensive for me so I only got a yard.  Then I had pretty black lace and added it at the bottom...the result....a circle skirt with a square-circle of lacey stuff over top of it, with elastic waistband for my funky body shape.

From the side.........(the skirt's not really crooked, I was wearing it weird)

And the front (it's wrinkled because I hadnt ironed it yet)

What do you think honestly?

10  Corset, rose, painting, pants, poptab bracelet...random things ETC. in Completed Projects by krissy_bass on: August 18, 2005 04:22:49 PM
Here's a bunch of randomness things that I've made, good or bad

Here's a skirt that I made out of a pair of pants and a corset I made to match.

Here's the corset up close, I tucked the sides behind to try to show form, but it didnt work. It looks much better in person. It laces up the back too

Here's a random reversible skirt I made for my sister (modeling) I hemmed the edges afterward (flipped inside out it's black with the grey underneath)

Here's my notebook that I attempted to paint with puff paint (I love Hellsing Smiley) and my first pop tab bracelet, a duct tape rose, and a random butterfly hairpin I made out of wire and nylons.

Here's a pair of pants (that look really better in person) that I added two layers of fabric to the sides to make a see-thru blue star thing, then added starry ribbon on the bottom and bows on the side.

Here's some random cd's that my friend and I decided to paint.  Excuse the scary pipes, we live in the basement of an old children's hospital so we have pipes in the ceiling, and I decorate them. Then there's a randomness painting that I did when I was bored. Dont ask, I dunno.

Aaaaaand that's it. I just needed to post some old things I suppose. Raise my self esteem...haha.
