2  psilocybin mushies in Needlework: Completed Projects by grrr betsy on: July 08, 2010 12:44:53 PM
My first embroidery in earnest... it's a little patch of magical shroomies... it took me a few hours last night. I used split stitch, back stitch, satin stitch and threw in a few french knots. I would like to get more info on doing fill/shading. I know I didn't do it exactly right here but it still looks pretty good for a first try if ya ask me!

I didn't use a pattern I just sketched it out with a pencil on muslin and went to town.

3  "Mad Hatter" hat... in Costumes: Completed Projects by grrr betsy on: July 01, 2010 08:22:41 PM
In the weeks after graduating from college and before going to a weekend long festival/costume-worthy camping event I found this crazy lamp shade at the Goodwill Bins thrift store and thought that it would be just a way silly hat! So I gathered other items from the bins to decorate with (leaves and flowers and such)... Somewhere along the line we realized that since my roomies were dressing up Alice in Wonderland themed, this would make a fun "Mad Hatter" costume... I just hot glued everything on, it worked great, the damn thing fell off my head a few times and it survived fantastically!

Me in the lamp shade @ the bins.




I also made a tutu type skirt to wear with it...

and the costume as I wore it...

4  furry "raver" boot covers in Costumes: Completed Projects by grrr betsy on: July 01, 2010 09:51:57 AM
Recently getting acquainted with the rave/dj/festival scene. A friend of mine had some white furry boot covers that are adorable and I said to myself "that's GOTTA be easy!" Well. It wasn't too tough, but the cost of the fur is CRAZY. like $20/yard, and I thought I would be able to make several pairs with a yard... maybe it was just the fur I bought, but the way the fur lies I'm not sure if I'm even going to be able to make 2 pairs out of 1 yard.

i combined info from a few different sources online, i spent a whole day trying to find a tutorial and then i still had to do trial and error to get them the way i wanted them to look.

here they are. not the greatest pic ever. next time i make a pair I am going to make them bell out bigger so they cover my whole shoe. they have an elastic/drawstring in the top cuff to keep them on tight. next time i want to get colorful fur and do ribbons for the drawstring so i can make pretty bows

6  tank girl belt in Completed Projects by grrr betsy on: July 29, 2007 02:13:39 PM
So the other day I saw a bunch of nitrous oxide canisters, the kind used to make whipped cream at home (the kind I found were by a brand called ISI but looking on ebay there are other brands that yield the same basic shape and are different colors like silver or blue) ... I thought they looked really neat and that they would make a great belt. I had a cloth belt that I had detached from an old military trench coat I found at a thrift store a few years ago and then hot glued all the empty canisters to the belt in that bullet belt style... this took all of an hour or so. I play to run fabric loops across the canisters at some point as well.

I'm calling it my tank girl belt because it reminds me of her... I kind of like the violet on olive green but if I make more I think I'll experiment with spray painting the canisters or something. This only took like half an hour

8  Un atébas. Yes, that's French. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by grrr betsy on: June 28, 2006 06:40:04 AM
So, it was actually a friend of mine who did this one for me, but I figured that after all, it is kind of a craft of a sort... just one that you wear and you don't take out and put back in all the time. It's called an atébas. I never really saw this in the United States, but it's pretty popular here in France with the reggae/hippy/rock crowd... It is essentially a braid wrapped extremely tightly with embroidery thread (yarn can be used too)

I just think they are pretty and fun. So here are some pictures of my new atébas.

Here's a site for any Francophones, http://lagrima.free.fr/atebas/ for English speakers, I would be happy to help or explain anything you don't understand.

Well, the other day I got a phone call telling me that I wasn't chosen to recieve one of AFS's academic scholarships. Which is really really lame. So I have to raise something like $7000 by September.

Other than that, my handbag and earmuffs I made sold to some friends really fast. But I still have a wallet and a tutu. I will probably be doing some more earrings soon too.

http://trescrafty.net for more pictures and to buy!
