Here are the fabulous bookmarks Kabili sent me (not one, but two!!)

The one on the left has a picture from Pride & Prejudice and has a quote on the back: "Now, be sincere; did you admire me for my impertinence?"

I've been using the red one a lot lately - its an awesome shape for most of my books.  Cheesy

Thank you very much!

Two of my partners received, so I figured I'd go ahead and post pics of what I sent them.

Fronts: The pink one was for classycrafter, who wanted something girly, and the other was for yamwam, who wanted stamps and chocolate - I thought my combining skills on that was ingenious.  Tongue


The pink one is sewn, and is made of various textiles (lace, net, fabric...). The other is various paper mediums.

85  Various projects (Free stitch butterfly, tons of cross stitch) in Needlework: Completed Projects by racehorse87 on: November 07, 2005 06:04:36 PM
Here are a bunch of projects I did about 2 years ago but hadn't really thought of posting until now:

A butterfly for a correspondance embroidery course. I had to use a variety of stitches and I chose couching, satin, backstitch, buttonhole, french knots, chain, and lattice couching.

Cross Stitch

A hummingbird scene (with tons of metallics) - sorry about the crease, I didn't feel like ironing it yet  Tongue:


Various card inserts

I can get more detail on any of them, if you'd like.  Cheesy

What do y'all think?

I was a gothic (lolita) doll. I made the corset, skirt, and hair bow.  Grin

It was great fun. ^_^

Yay! Thank you!

I have pics of the finished project. *grin*

I made the corset, skirt, and hair bow. I turned out to be a gothic (lolita) doll.

It was great fun. ^_^

88  Reversible Corset (Modified from New Look 6207) image heavy ish in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by racehorse87 on: October 18, 2005 08:23:05 PM
Note: If anyone tries to make this the same way I did based on this pattern, but find themselves running into problems, let me know and I'll try to explain how I changed it.

New Look 6207 http://www.smartcart.com/1sew/cgi/display.cgi?item_num=6207nl

I made this for my best friend's birthday. The original pattern does not have any lacing as the back is not split and the front opens and closes with hook and eye tape. The pattern is also not reversible - it took quite a bit of thinking for me to figure out how to do that one.

It's quite a bit of a pain to get in and out of, pointing out to me the utility of a busk, but it's nice and decorative. I meant for it to be a bit of a medieval costume piece.

There are 12 pieces of boning in there, for which I used cable ties and featherweight boning. It was quite a long project seeing as there 10 panels to it and 22 grommets. (I am so sick of putting in grommets  Tongue)

Without further ado, the corset, with my lovely friend modeling it!

The Black Side



The Plaid Side




Oh how I love the side view on corsets.  Grin

89  Painted checkerboard shoes (should I add more red?) in Shoes: Completed Projects by racehorse87 on: October 17, 2005 02:16:54 PM
Inspired by the posts on this board, and distressed at the limited color choices on cheap canvas shoes, I decided to paint me some checkered shoes. (I used acrylic paint with a textile medium. I'm not sure how to seal them, so I try not to wear them outdoors too much.)



My Question: Should I continue the scattered red stripes onto the rest of the shoe (ie: the top, back, and outside side), or leave it as is?

90  Three costumes (Milkmaid, Pirate, Lolita/Victorian look) - image heavy in Costumes: Completed Projects by racehorse87 on: October 16, 2005 05:26:14 PM
Using the various bits and pieces of clothing I've been making, I put together a couple of costumes. (yay!)
(I love costumes  Grin)

Costume #1: Patience, the Village Milkmaid
The white blouse below started my sewing craze. I made it for a missions trip this summer because I needed a spanish dancer costume, but couldn't find a peasant blouse. I used Simplicity 5582 for it, and when I realized I needed a costume for camp, made the bodice (?) as well.

The costume is of a character called Patience (from the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta Patience), who happens to be the village milkmaid.

Costume #2: Victorian/Lolita Outfit

Inspired by the Gothic Lolita look, I set out to make a skirt. It was my first real experience drafting a pattern and then constructing a piece of clothing from it. I'm thinking of being a lolita-esque doll for Halloween, so this skirt may be a component of it later developing into something different. If I remember correctly, I got the top for $1 at a thrift store.  Grin

Costume #3: Pirate

A mix and match of the skirt & blouse plus a shirt I recently reconstructed from a hideous striped hoodie, an ill-fitting t-shirt, and paint. (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=58624.0)

Full View



Comments, ideas, critizism would be appreciated. If you have any idea what to name the lolita/victorian costume, it would make me happy. The name I came up with was "High Society", although I'm not so sure about that one.   Cheesy
