1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Undergraduate University Scholarship for Knitters! on: March 04, 2011 12:02:30 PM
I'm not sure where to post this, but I thought that people should know about it!

Jimmy Beans Wool is accepting applications for an undergraduate university scholarship from people who knit or crochet!

2  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Creepy Child/Doll Eye Makeup on: June 07, 2010 04:49:24 PM
Inspired by a part I will be performing in an upcoming musical, I concocted this look:

The part is that of a creepy little girl in a derelict sideshow. To get an idea of how the makeup might combine with the character's personality for an overall effect, I made use of a fun filter on my camera:

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Beaded Earrings on: December 08, 2009 01:06:09 PM
After a fairly long hiatus from earring-making, I've gotten back into it lately and have a few simple creations I'd like to share! Smiley

Please let me know what you think as I'm trying to improve my designs and execution! Cheesy
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 80s to modern! on: March 12, 2009 09:45:12 PM
I turned a pair of terrifying 80s earrings with a million things danging from them into a number of pairs of much more simple and elegant earrings. Smiley

5  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Native American Costume on: January 16, 2009 09:49:09 AM
For New Years I went to a party themed "The Rootin' Tootin' West". I thought about being a cowboy, but a wise friend told me that there was a better way to dress. Wink

I am on the right.

The parts I made/reconstructed were:

The headband was made from an old belt that I found buried in my room.

The overskirt used to be a pair of leather short shorts. I sewed shut the pockets, straightened out the inseam, trimmed back the lining and then cut the fringe. I think it looks much better as a shirt. Cheesy

I also made my armband out of a large chunk of inseam leather from the short shorts.

The face painting was based on some other costume images I found on the web, especially this one:

PS. Sorry for poor picture quality. Most of my pictures from that night are silly and not useful for seeing my costume.

One of the funnest parts was when a friend and I ran into two "Native American" guys. She asked them for a picture and they were kind enough to oblige. They had made themselves a canoe, but unfortunately it broke. Sad

In the end I was very glad to have gone as a Native American. There were way too many cowboys.

PS. If you are Native American, please forgive the inaccuracies in costuming and mannerisms. We really were trying, but could have probably benefited from a little more cultural knowledge.
6  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Pink Sparkly Loopy Loom Bracelet of Iridescence! on: December 09, 2008 07:00:11 PM
While I was studying I decided that it would be a good idea to work on a project. While my brain is memorizing, my hands can work!

This is a "loopy loom" bracelet. It's going to be a surprise present for a friend!  Grin

Here is the glamour shot:

And a plain end-to-end aerial view:

I hope you like it. If anyone wants to know how it's done, it's fairly simple and I can try to explain. Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Medieval peasant costume for my mum! on: July 26, 2007 06:32:53 AM
My family is going to a renaissance faire this summer and I decided that this time we should all go in costume (rather than just me like last time, hehe). When I set out to make my mom a costume she was a bit apprehensive as she thought a peasant blouse would just make her look frumpy and shapeless.

She was actually quite pleasantly surprised with how it turned out and is quite pleased to wear it to the faire! Yay! My dad has been having a ball joking about her being his wench now.  Cheesy

Bigger picture here:



Pattern: http://www.reddawn.net/costume/chemise.htm
Made out of broadcloth

Waist cincher
Pattern drafted from a similar item that I have. Lacing added to the back also.
Fully reversible - one side is made out of an old pair of brown velvet pants, the other from a quilting print fabric.
8  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / ONGOING STUFF I CAN MAKE ? on: January 07, 2007 12:30:11 PM
I always used to love the ongoing stuff I can make swaps - in fact they were my favorite of the bunch. I have rather missed them.

Just wondering if anyone else missed that swap or if anyone was thinking of starting a new round.
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Fly Away on: December 13, 2006 10:42:23 PM
I've been wanting wings for awhile, and I finally had time and inspiration and stenciled them!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Spanish skills? Help please! on: November 15, 2006 05:53:41 PM
I would like to stencil a shirt that says "God is good" on the front and "all the time!" on the back, but in Spanish. I don't speak Spanish, so I was hoping that if anyone does, they could help me out with the spelling and grammar if I'm totally off.

If I'm right, I think it's "Dios es bueno" ...  "todo el tiempo"

Thank you for any help you can offer!  Cheesy
