1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Very Very Toilled Up. on: August 17, 2007 10:17:58 PM
'nuff said.

Little Toille clutch thang.

Yay for little reinforcment things! The whole deal with this peice was that they contrasted from the very formal very elegant toille because they're edges are a bit frayed and uneven and the stitching looks off.

In the same fabric here's the toille bag I made my friend for her birthday.

Inside I filled it with lovely goodies for her to sew with!

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / WICKED Elphaba Doll! She's just missing a hat. on: August 17, 2007 10:06:32 PM
I made this Elphaba doll awhile ago from the pattern for the dolls in Knitted Babes by Claire Garland. [fab book btw]. Instead of using a natural skin colour though I knitted her up in a great green and at the bottom knitted some of her legs in white for socks!

here's miss elphaba looking rather wicked in her little black dress I made her.

Close up of Elphaba and her fierce eyes.

I'm going to need to make some wicked boots for these striped socked feet.

Now that you've seen my dear little friend have you noticed what she's missing?

HER BLACK POINTED HAT!!!!! No wicked witch can go without one.
anyone have any ideas on how to obtain/make one?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / I love Rainy Days..Questions on Making a Raincoat on: August 17, 2007 09:05:57 PM
So I love Rainy Days. And I love jumping around in puddles and such. And I just realized I have no raincoat.
Has anyone ever made their own raincoat?
is such a thing possible?
I know there is PVC coated fabric, but does anyone know where to find it? (I had to unfortunatley find this out by looking at marrimekko fabric. Now I crave a marimekko raincoat...but it would end up costing like 200 dollars...grr).
Do they even make raincoat patterns? Or Would one use a coat pattern and just substitute wool or such for waterproof stuff.

hmm... if anyone has any thoughts or answers they would be much appreciated

5  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Completed Projects / stage light two color shirt [w/ sleeve and tag print] on: May 18, 2007 06:43:51 PM
Well my friend Krisitan's brithday is coming up and he loves urban outfitters so I went there to find him a present but alas everything there he either had/ had too many like it/ or it was too expensive. So I got him a striped shirt on sale and screened it to his liking Smiley [ I put a stage light on it because he and I are both theatre geeks].

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Sew U Skirt on: December 01, 2006 11:10:19 PM

Voila! Here is that generic a-line skirt from Wendy Mullin's Sew U.

extremely simple to make.

The one I made is actually not for me [or my style length/fabric wise], it's for my mom. Can't wait to give it to her  Smiley
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Retro Summer Dress in Orange Thelma Fabric on: July 27, 2006 09:22:26 AM

I just finished this in my sewing class from a pattern I brought in [i just recently came across a jackpot of old patterns from the 50s-70s] I brought in. It was probably the most challenging thing I've made in my time sewing so far, yet really rewarding because it is really comfy and I'm very pleased with how it came out Smiley

I've been wearing it for the past few days because where I live becaues we've had a huge heat wave. Really comfy in heat.


8  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Peace Corner on: May 14, 2006 12:34:40 PM
Well I've wanted to put in a sitting area to read in in my closet for a while, i really don't know why just some sort of a thing I've wanted to do so this weekend I finally did it!

Me and my friends (who just helped me paint the walls) took my cleaned out closet (i basically pushed everything over and put my laundry bin in my bathroom)from this:

to this!

^full view

^my "chair" a pillow I made (the one with pockets) and a floor pilow I bought from Urban Outfitters

^my "endtable", a ghiradelli can, my insense and some callililys I got from performing last night

^A kind of full view of the writing so far. A few quotes, song lyrics and poems. And of course the peace sign

^The writing is on the wall

^And if I turn my Tv (sitting on my shoe rack turned TV/dvd player holder thing ha) I can watch it in my corner!

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / I'm chiquita bannana and im here to say.... on: March 05, 2006 09:25:55 PM

im so happeeee, I always love looking through here so its cool to be able to put something up

My mom helped me out a little (cuz my machine is crap at basting stiches so she hand gathered it) and helped me with the yoke a bit (just a bit Wink) but I did the "petticoat/tutu.thing" all by meself Smiley
I'm quite obssesed with the different fashions of the 1900s (i.e. 20s-70s some 80s) and I LOVE 50s style clothing and i've always wanted a "poofy" skirt (a petticoat) so I got inspired by the ones on crafster and made my own. It took forever to figure out what fabric to use as the actual skirt but I finally picked it out with a little inspiration from my mom's banana shirt (that she gave to me)[see below]

Sorry the pictures are a bit out of focus


Skirt/tutu.thing together'ed


Perhaps earrings?
