1  Cropped Bomber Jacket in Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects by oohmybees on: May 31, 2017 08:57:39 PM
This is the "show piece" of my senior mini collection. I didn't have an embroidery machine so I bought some expensive embroidered fabric and appliqued the design onto the jacket.

It took forever!!!, but it was totally worth it.
The colors are off (who knew taking photos in your basement at midnight was a bad idea  Grin) but the details are clear.

Thanks for looking <3

I received from DizzerSpinninRound this weekend:

The nude cupcake is so fun, but I would have to say may favorite is the owl and the cupcake inchie Grin (But really I love them all)  Thanks Dizzer!

I also wanted to share a detail shot of the Heart twinchie I sent Dizzer, the front opens and the inside has some watch gears:

Sorry the picture is bleary, I used dimensional magic to embed the gears and it has a gloss finish that's distorting the image.

I received my package from mieljolie yesterday and everything is fabulous!!!

Here is my new witch's boot, I asked for black cats or skeletons and she did both.

A Teesha Moore inspired binder cover with my name embroidered on the back.

A ladybird house ornie, I have to admit when I saw the one she made for Cackle I was jealous, I'm so glad she made one for me too.

And finally a polymer clay sculpture of a pumpkin in a witch's hat (similar to something in my wists, but so much better!), the lovely box her daughter decorated for me, and a polymer clay embellished pen.

Everything is just perfect, Thank you so much mieljolie

BTW, I'm always ready to do another swap with you, I want to have a whole collection of those boots!

6  Andy Warhol plus Star Wars in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by oohmybees on: March 16, 2011 07:00:30 AM
My son loves Star Wars, the Clone Troopers are his favorite, there really isn't a good selection of stuff to buy that features the Troopers, maybe a poster or two.  So when we got new toilets and they came in really nice double walled boxes, I decided to make the boxes into canvases and make some Andy Warhol inspired troopers.

Each canvas is 16 inches square and is two layers of cardboard.  I glued the layers together and used paper mache to make it sturdier.  I primed the finished squares with gesso and used apple barrel craft paint to paint the design.
They are really light weigh, I need to seal them and to glue picture hangers on the back and they'll be ready to hang.
I'd love to hear what everyone thinks  Grin

7  Re: "Frankie Says 'UUGGGHHHHHH'" Dress from T-Shirt (PIC HEAVY!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by oohmybees on: November 12, 2010 12:18:28 PM
I love what you did with this shirt and I was soooo inspired that I rushed right out and bought that shirt and the orange one with the pumpkin.  The Frankie shirt is currently laying in a heap on the floor and is a partial failure, but the orange one turned out great.

I need an action shot, but you get the idea.  This shirt was a 2X, which is pretty much my size, I had to splice in some extra fabric on the sides (from the sleeves) and add some black knit, some tie dye knit and some other striped scraps, but I do have a fun finished dress that is less figure hugging than yours, but more exciting than just a plain shirt.

Thanks for the inspiration!

8  Vintage Styled Halloween Wreath in Halloween Decor and Parties by oohmybees on: October 18, 2010 08:20:29 AM
I love Halloween so much and every year it seems like the selection in the stores gets worse and worse, so I decided to make my own vintage styled wreath.

I used this tutorial to make the tulle wreath base and just started adding more and more.

I really like the glitter and crepe paper ruffles, but I'm not sure about the Happy Halloween banner.  I haven't permanently attached it yet, so I can still take it off.  What do you guys think, keep it, leave it off, or try something else?  Any other suggestions?  Thanks  Cheesy

9  Kids Clothes from Thrifted Shirts (Pic Heavy) in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by oohmybees on: April 21, 2010 11:02:42 AM
My local Goodwill stores have $.99 day at the end of the month and every month I scour the racks for funny and cute shirts to make clothes for my kids.  It's a lot easier when I don't have to find a certain size.
I invested in the Sienna Dress pattern from Lilblueboo and it has turned out to be a fabulous investment.  The knit sewing and embellishing tips were fabulous and the pattern pieces fit together so perfectly I don't even have to use pins.  I have been so busy trying different piecing options that I haven't even started stenciling or embellishing the fabric.

This was the first one I made and it turned out perfectly.

Not the best photo, but this is her favorite one, she wears it all day and then asks to sleep in it.

I just had to make this one.

Unfortunately these fabrics are polyester, but I couldn't resist the floral print.  Cotton is much easier to work with and it just feels better on the skin, but I figured that since it's a dress she wouldn't get to hot.

I was super excited to find this Catrina shirt and some perfectly coordinating tie dye.
As I was making all these dresses it occured to me that I could make boys tops too.  I cut out a larger size and straightened the side seams and made this for my oldest.

Orange is his favorite color and this shirt makes him look so handsome and grown up.
I then found this free pattern to make baby gowns, so I made a few and I will be making more.  Gowns make changing diapers so much easier and since he will be number 3, I'm all about easy!


I'm thinking about adding some nautical star stencils to this one, we'll see if I have enough time (I'm past due, but he doesn't seem ready to come out yet.

I could not resist this shirt!
I love making my kids one of a kind clothing, especially when it's cheaper than the mass produced crap.  The end of the month is coming and I think I'm going hunting for some more shirt.  I can't wait to start hitting yard sales, the shirts are more interesting.

10  Revamped baby car seat in Completed Projects by oohmybees on: April 19, 2010 11:41:19 AM

I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of baby #3.  After digging out all of the baby stuff I realized that my car seat was looking a little tired and plain.  The liner was beige with bears and not in mint condition.  I have always been kind of intimidated by the complexity of a car seat liner, but after looking at it I realized that it was not that complicated.

I traced the original cover pieces onto paper bags.  I didn't even take it apart, but it would have been a little easier and more accurate if I had, but I wanted to make sure that I would have some sort of liner if the one I was making didn't work.  I used pre-quilted fabric, just to be easy and because I loved the batik pattern.  There were only four pieces: a center piece, two side pieces, and a sleeve that fits over the back of the seat.    There were also four elastic loops that hold the liner in place.  After sewing the four pieces together I tried it on the seat and made a few adjustments and positioned the elastic pieces.  Then all I had to do was put bias binding around the entire edge.  The new liner made the old seat look new!

I also made a coordinating cover to keep out the sun and drafts using this tutorial.  Now I have what looks like a brand new car seat, now if Little Sir would only come out.

I've really crafted a lot for this baby: hats, booties, gowns, boppy covers, swaddling blankets, and a cocoon, but I do have more time now and he is going to be getting a lot of hand me downs.
Comments always appreciated  Grin
