2  Re: The Amazing Hoodie Swap 5 soccer21 PLEASE CONTACT ORGANISER in The Swap Gallery by radish_spirit on: January 08, 2007 04:25:41 AM
Its already been posted, but i love it so much i had to post a picture of me actually wearing it. Dodgy as the pictures are, you can see the really cool stenciling that giant squid did on this hoodie on the front and back. The only problem is... that is summer, so i cant wear it for another few months!!!

Thanks giantsquid!

3  better late than never? in The Swap Gallery by radish_spirit on: January 08, 2007 04:01:51 AM
Hi guys,

Im so terribly bad at keeping up with things on the internet at the moment. Yes ive learnt my lesson, no more swaps until life settles down. Sorry again. Thankyou so much guys for the wonderful things youve sent me. I know youve already posted them but you mentioned tanza you wanted to see what you sent in their new home, so here they are!

Firstly Tanza sent me these awesome gifts

As you can see my wonderful new ninja has settled in with the other toys. Thanks for creating something from my wist.

And the DS case is great, it has a polar fleece inner lining for extra antiscratching breaking. And of course its got the radish spirit on it! The anime version of me. DS not included.

And starberrii sent me this awesome celtic knot tote bag, i cant believe she hand stitched it! And this cute little bird, i so have to learn that cross stitching technique. Its a japanese technique isn't it?

And everything together,

I love the bag, i take it to work with me everyday.

thanks guys, again sorry for neglecting you!

4  Kimono Hoodie - giantsquid dont look!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by radish_spirit on: November 26, 2006 07:27:18 PM
Heya guys, i just finished sewing this kimono hoodie, its the second one ive made, and its turned out great! Im going to dye it next and then decorate it a bit on the back. Im making it for the hoodie swap and its not finished yet and the photos are really dodgy but i was too excited and had to post it. Note ive made it for someone smaller then me, so thats why its a bit short. Im hoping though that it suits the person im swapping with, ive realised that the kimono shape might not suit the female figure, its fine for me with super shoulders, but im hoping it turns out alright for my swap partner. Oh well, ill make them something else if they dont like it. Thanks guys, ill post more pics once ive finished decorating it and perhaps even with a decent camera!

oh yeah and im debating whether to add a sash to it or a zip or toggles or something, or just leave it blank.... we'lll seeee....

5  japanese kamakaze felty bible cover in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by radish_spirit on: February 18, 2006 06:11:13 PM
I think i can post this in this section. Ages ago i made this really cool bible cover out of polar fleece, i ended up hand stiching it, and also i made the inside cover out of perspex so that i could shove things in there and see them. The whole thing is hand stiched and so its a bit bodgy, but i love it. And because im silly all the polar fleece patches have their front and back of the material sides all mixed up, so some pilled really quickly and it looked a bit odd.. but thats ok,, it looks well loved.

But since then some of my friends have been coveting it, so they placed some orders and ive started making them as gifts. So heres the first one. I made it out of felt this time, and i machine sewed it. Im pretty happy with it, it looks a bit neater, but i think next time i wont use navy thread on white, i thought it would look cool, but it didnt turn out. Yeah my friends said the pattern looks like a japanese kamakase pattern lol. I didnt bother with the plastic inside, it takes too long and is a bit awkward to sew onto. And i think the next one i make might be reds and oranges.

and the two side by side

6  legend of zelda cosplay shield in Costumes: Completed Projects by radish_spirit on: February 15, 2006 01:25:26 PM
i wasnt quite sure where to put this, and id also be interested in scouring craftster now that ive thought of it for other cosplay costumes or props. For a friends 21st everyone had to go as a cartoon character, so i decided to go as link!!! so i made for myself a shield of of mdf which i cutup using a electrical jigsaw thing and then i painted it and stuck together. And to finish it off, got a cheapo belt and made some straps. Im reaally pleased with it. I think though i might add some screws to the front silver frame to look like rivets, and i think in the future i might also have a go at making either the zelda sword or ocarina.

is there a different section i should have or could have posted this?

7  zelda wind waker print in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by radish_spirit on: February 14, 2006 01:40:01 PM
i grabbed this image off the net, its from the game the legend of zelda: the wind waker, and i messed around with it in photoshop to make it black and white, and then put it in flash to make it a vector, and then sized and printed it from illustrator. There were alot of little fiddly bits, and because i cut it up over a period of time, i was constantly counting and recounting all the floaty bits to make sure i hadnt lost anything. But here it is in its finished glory!

i now know that i hate fabric paint, its all weird and foamy and so i think ill just use acrylic in future, you can iron that in and its permanent and its easier to work with. Ive also since heard about these wonderful things called x-acto knives, so hopefully for my next print i can save time and effort and use one of these instead of a stanley knife.

8  3 X $1 reusable shopping bags reconstructed! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by radish_spirit on: February 14, 2006 01:29:07 PM
ive been debating what to do with these shopping bags for a while, i just new that the green was the perfect green, and that i had to turn it into something else. At first i was thinking about maybe making some sort of jacket maybe without sleeves or maybe with a hood or something, but no after seeing how easy it was to make a shoulder bag with a simple pattern, i converted these $1 synth fibre shopping bags into something much cooler..... with navy lining! ooohhhhh bluuuuueeee.....

the original

the reconstructed

and how it looks on

how excitement
i might still give the jacket option a go, we'll see...

9  my first 3d needle felting animal thingy in Felting: Completed Projects by radish_spirit on: February 14, 2006 01:21:49 PM
at first i thought felting was just for flat things, or fashiony things, but after seeing that really cool felt gargoyle i felt inspired to give 3d felting a go. So i created a simple wire skeleton and then using white felt (because its cheap for noobs) i created this cat / dog/ lion thing....

im still mulling over how to finish it, i might add a mane, or some whiskers or dots on the cheeks, we'll see.
how excitement
