1  shiny skull apartment decor in CHALLENGE 12 ENTRIES by sunshine_fix on: June 01, 2006 02:40:45 PM

Say hello to my kitchy apartment decorations. I wanted to hang them above my bed but they just look so cute with my books up there I couldn't move them! I built a frame out of gold-painted popsicle sticks (108 were used, plenty more were maimed and glued to make this.) The lightning bolts on the side are made of chenille stems, and the the flowers are wagonwheel pasta painted pink. The skulls hand painted fabric using my favorite metallic fabric acryllic paint. And I added my star-shaped jewels because that's just my style. Thanks a bunch for looking!

2  my new number-y dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sunshine_fix on: May 29, 2006 01:34:27 PM

I think it may have to be a size smaller next time, what do you think? It's number fabric with a belt. I'm thinking of getting a ribbon to wear with it instead. Thanks for your comments/suggestions!
edit: for some reason photobucket is messing up this photo...I'm so sorry if this is all messed up looking!

3  super simple summer skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sunshine_fix on: May 03, 2006 12:52:44 PM
My roommates are moving out and a couple of my friends are graduating and we're going out for dinner and I have nothing to wear so...this was 15 minutes well spend. And it's not a circle skirt, do you think I can spare 5 more minutes on THAT?! It hits me just below my knees (I'm short) and it is HUGE on my dressform, since she's thinner than I am.

4  fixing dress form in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by sunshine_fix on: April 17, 2006 06:52:17 PM
My mom bought me this old dress form for CHEAP. It has a cute little spring around it, and it seems sturdy and is adjustable. However, it has a rip on the side. How should I go about fixing it, if I can? Or does anyone know where I can (cheaply) get a new cover for it? Thanks in advance! Here's pics!

5  two skirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sunshine_fix on: March 12, 2006 06:13:44 PM
I can't think if I posted this before. This is my wrap skirt. It's purple flower printed and can close in the front or the back.

I just stuck this skirt in the wash. It's pleated and I had to shorten it a lot because the directions in my sewing book for it made it so long on me it was dragging the floor. I'm sure you can still see the marks from the tailor's chalk on it! It has a button closure-- my first button time doing a buttonhole...oh, and I did that tie dye shirt too weeee!

6  Ginormous Circle Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by sunshine_fix on: March 02, 2006 07:23:53 PM
I feel like I'm from the cast of Hairspray...but I kinda like that. Anyways, are people going to mutter "freak" under their breath as I walk by or is it nostangia-y? Disregard the huge plastic bag of mangled doll parts next to me and messed up bed. I'm taking care of that, really.  Grin

I actually tried my hand at making a rag doll. I got my pattern from here:
The pattern is really straightforward, but I think the directions could be a little more elaborate since it took me so long to figure out her hair. I completed her in a few nights in a few short sittings, hand sewing. I bought a Raggedy Ann pattern for like $1 yesterday at Joanne's since they were on sale. I think I have another pattern for a cuter doll at home. Dolls hold a special place in my heart, my Grandma made me the most gorgeous doll when I was younger. Here's my first attempt at one:
