2  Bike Seat Covers - mini-tut. YAY! in Completed Projects by lithium.kitten on: June 07, 2006 09:59:56 PM
'Kay... think this might go here... Anyway. Me and my mum got new bikes last week.
The seats are not made for our... 'shapely assests' so the first few rides were hell. Not only because of the seat, but 'cause of the huge hills we rode up  Undecided
Finally I decided to use my new bargin-bin fabrics (good stuff) for nice, soft, foamy, seat covers. Had some Foam left over from a mask I made a while back. Few layers of that, and the ride was much better. Did a few tests first before we figured it all out. Mine was the test subject  Tongue
Here's the completed-ness  Grin

Needle/Sewing Machine
Shoe Lace, String or Rope

1. With foam, the thin stuff, cut out the shape of the bike seat. Include the sides of the seat. If you know what I mean. You can have as many layers as you want.
2. Use the foam as a guide to measure your fabric, leaving about an inch and a half. This will be your seat.
3. Measure the perimeter of the foam and cut out a long strip of fabric in that size.
4. Sew the long strip into a tube shape, leave half an inch for sewing.
5. Pin the tube to the perimeter of the seat, right sides together. Leave half an inch at the back for your rope/lace/string/gum.
6. Sew and turn it inside out.... DUN DUN DUN! =O a cover!
7. Once your two peices are sewn, thread a shoe lace, or strong sting, through.
8. Place all your foam layer onto the seat, then put your cover on top... You may need help placing the cover on... one person holding the cover in place while the other ties it, tightly. You don't want to be sliding around.

My distructions are a tad bit messy, I should have pictures to clarify a bit more by the weekend.

3  Navy Shirt Recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lithium.kitten on: April 05, 2006 10:31:14 PM
DUN DUN DUN!! Second post...
I got this huge navy shirt from the M.O.D. shop. It kinda hung a little too big on me.
I also got a bunch of laces. White, Bight Pink, Black, etc.
I resized shirt by doing a corset-ie type lacing in the back...
Fit better around the top and middle. But the length is still off and the sleeves are to poofy...
So I may sew up the bottom and make some smaller lacing on the sleeves...
And I'll probably redo the buttons, once I find one's that I like =D
pictures so you know what I'm talking about!

4  A Tank and some ears o...O in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lithium.kitten on: April 05, 2006 10:22:22 PM
Uh, I suppose this would be my first post... even though I joined ages ago.
I kinda forgot my old account T_T

So, I haven't sewn anything in a while.
But I'm planning to since summer is just around the corner ^_^
Here's a tank top/cami thingy I made a while back.
It's made from the carcass of my huge, old, aqau T-Shirt.


I also was planning to cosplay as a moogle once...
but I changed my mind so I was left with kitty ears:

The ears are made from foam, felt and an old headband.
They do have a little pink triangle in the middle but the flash washed it out...
And now I'll model them for you roffle
