1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Buddha Head Bag - officeworks brand transfer paper on: January 29, 2006 12:23:41 AM

here is my first attempt at iron on transfers...must say was a lot easier than I first thought..and for all you aussie craftsters out there, I just bought it from Officeworks..their own brand, for dark backgrounds. turned out really great. blacks dont turn out to be a true black but I think thats cos of the ink reacting to the heat AND the fact that the ink in the printer wasnt a true black anyway...

but its a home job ... I wont complain

uhh it cost $19.95 for 5 sheets

just made the library style bag with some black twill fabric from work (spotlight) and the pic is a product of googling the word buddha head..just found a large quality photo. printed it out, then cut it out carefully and voila!

made it for my mate...one of her fave bags!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Jesus Dress on: December 24, 2005 03:32:02 AM
yes...I call it my jesus dress...why? cos the colour of this brown t shirt material reminds me of jesus/jerusalem..

must have something to do with primary school and nativity scenes...I really dont know??!

ANYHOO I made this dress today in a few hours (im a slow/amateur seamstress!) and it's simply a tube of fabric thats been shirred at the top (boob part) and waist so it can gather at the hips and the fabric then bunch over like an inbuilt belt.


yeah Im no model lol but you know what..I dont care!! just wanted to share Smiley

Hey Merry Christmas!
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Wraparound Belt on: December 20, 2005 01:33:37 AM
wraparound belt is kind of a stupid name..since..thats what a belt essentially does

well wanted to share my creation (not original idea, I wont claim that)
I was in Newtown with a friend one day and saw a belt like this in one of those expensive boutiques. they were selling it for like $70, it was a really nice fabric but what got me was the design. was so simple and looked so flash! so from memory I created my own version.

if anyone's interested I'll put up a tutorial as I make more (its dead easy) I bought the fabric from work (in oz theres a big company called spotlight - its where I get everything) I think it was quilting fabric or something, comes on tiny rolls..but such a hot fabric. had geishas over it. got a photo of all the different other fabrics I bought to do similar things with!


4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / MY FIRST HOODIE (I ADDED THE PIC hehehe) on: August 27, 2005 11:45:23 AM
I was sick of the sports branded hoodies so made my own.

used a new look 6784 pattern and adjusted it by adding lining (the cherry satin stuff) and the cherry iron on motif (which I'll stitch on later for a little extra strength) also added that front pocket (just cut out a rectangle, then folded the corners) cos I needed somewhere for my hands to go  Cheesy

this was my first fully completed top!!! I've never ever finished a sewing task i set myself unless it was really basic (eg. poncho) but this was a little more involved. loved it. just wanted to show people cos...COS IM EXCITED OVER IT?!?!?!?!!!!

I can't wait to make another one for the guy I've just started seeing...any suggestions for linings  Huh cos I want it to be HELLA COOL..cos he's a honey Wink
