2  an " i dont know the era" hat ( maybe flapper?) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by retro rabbit34 on: April 25, 2006 09:38:02 AM
i made this hat last summer when i saw it at a store for about $100 and that was a bit out of my reach so i decided to make one for my self Cheesy

it was soooooo much work and i made about a million and a half samples but in the end it worked out well i only have one pic because im lazy but i might take more

the brim doesnt really cover all my eyes its just the angle and the brim is acctually tilted to one side (yes on purpose)

well i hope you like it and if need be i will post a tute for everyone Grin

4  yay for cough syrup and keychains! in Completed Projects by retro rabbit34 on: April 21, 2006 08:06:47 PM
i made this one day when i was sick and alll hopped up on cough syrup, i started out by being REALLY bored and i decided to make a box, then i painted it green, made the front white with Zebra srtips and mogpoged on a flower with a purple sequin in the center

but the inside was empty so i glued a page out of a spainsh dictionary on the inside, smeared glitter glue inside

but it just needed something elso so i glued in my old troll keychain that its arms broke off

still not enough ( now remember i was all hopped up on cough syrup)
so i glues a green pom pom in his hair and then another purplpe sequin in the center of the pompom to look like a turbin that fortune tellers wear

and this is what 3hrs and half a bottle of cough syrup gets you..................

blah he doesnt usually come out crooked, he was just camera shy Embarrassed

sorry you cant see much detail because the flash of the camera made the mogpog shin

thxs for looking

5  why could it be? it's another spin off of sakijanes ribbon dress NOW WITH TUTE!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by retro rabbit34 on: April 21, 2006 04:44:28 PM
why yes it is another spin off of sakijane's ribbon dress i made over a year ago, but i made it my own, instead of making it a dress i made it a long shirt and there are no ribbons hanging off the bottom 

close up on the applique ( there little gold sequins in the shape of a heart) sorry for the creepy see thoughness of my skin

ooh and the infamous action shot!!, i would explain the face im making but that would envolve me know what happened (and yes that IS a ball of yarn)

please leave comments cause they make me sooo happy Grin



mmmkay  so how i made the dress is (hopefully) simple to explain....

1) i bought a pattern that was a strapless dress and altered it to be just a long top ( basically cut off the skirt part and lengthed it ) make sure it fits you properly !!

2) sewed as patterns said (hemmed and everything)****DO NOT SEW ZIPPER IN YET!!!

3) i used a dress form and wrap ribbon around and pined it at the back seam( where the zipper goes)

4) while still on dress form (after all ribbons where on) i hand sewwed the ribbon on spots in the front so when i wear it the ribbons wont become loose and out of place

5) CAREFULLY take off dress form (back ribbons still pined on) lay on table and baste the ribbons on the back seam  then you machine sew in place and take out basting

6) sew in zipper and add on any thinig you want .....like an applique!

7) walla!! put it on and sit back and let every one gush over your lovey new top!

i hope this makes sense, if you have any questions you can just PM me and hopefully ill be able to help you Wink

9  va va va voom ***now with a picture*** in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by retro rabbit34 on: April 15, 2006 04:45:21 PM
okay well my mom gave me her old bustier that she never wore yesterday( which just so happened to be my size), its really cutie and i want to wear out (but on top of a tank top) but the problem is that its black lace and i look sluty ( im far from that normally) i had an idea if sewing different types of buttons all over it untill its compleatly covered, but that takes a LOT of time so i was wondering if anyone has any ideas what i can do to it or it i could cover it with some sort of other fabric???

ya thats right, im damb sexy! Wink

10  button hole blues *** now with pic*** in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by retro rabbit34 on: April 13, 2006 07:38:13 PM
well where to start...........

okay im making this really cool purple sweatshirt but instead of a zipper im using big buttons, about 45 mm in diameter ( you know the kind that you get these tin pieces that pop together and you put the fabric on so your buttons match your fabric) any way there bigger than any button hole that the 3 different types of sewing machines at school can do so i run in to a problem.....how do i make the button holes bigger???

if any one out there know some cool trick that with make the button holes bigger or make the machine think that it hasn't done as much as it really has to make them longer it would be REALLY helpfull and when i finish i will post pictures for everyone to see

thats for the help

love ya lots


thats the size of the button to a toonie
