11  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Summer Reading Swap-Signups:Closed; Sendouts:7/30 on: July 05, 2008 09:10:19 PM
I finished my first item! I hope sf craftster digs it as much as I do, because I kinda want to keep it (but I won't, I'm just going to make another one for myself!).

Super kudos to the swap organizer for picking out the perfect swap partner for me. It's almost spooky!

Cool! I'm totally signing up for this one. This will be my first swap!

*Sigh* I love books. I run the Children's Department in the bookstore I work at and am starting a Library Science program this Fall. My reading tastes are very eclectic, I kind of go through themes. Last summer was post-apocolyptic novels, right now it's vampires. I also love kid's books and have really gotten into teen/YA books. (OMG- read I Am The Messengar by Makus Zusak. It's awesome!)

PMing the organizer right now!

Your llamas are cute! I like the color combos, too.

Great job!  Smiley

Those are beautiful! I especially love the fabrics in the first one. Smiley

Did you use a pattern? I've been wanting to make some fun tops like that, but haven't been able to find a pattern that looks goof-proof for someone like me. Any tips?

I'm a big fan of the books, too.  I'm mostly active in the LJ Twilight community twilight_crafts, though I've visited quite a few of the websites that are out there.  I've been listening to a lot of the Twi-podcasts lately, too.  Oh, and I'm also participating in Twilight Swap Round 2.  Um, just a little obsessed!  *twitch*

Cool! I don't have a LJ account, but I'll probably be lurking around on there now! There are some really awesome projects on there.

I know, I'm totally obsessed, too. And I've "changed" several friends and family members, so now I have company in my obsession.

I think all the Pastafarians out there will agree, this ROCKS!
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Twilight corset t-shirt on: April 27, 2008 11:36:05 PM
This is my first shirt recon!

I'm a huge fan of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga and wanted to make something to wear to her book signing that I'm going to in May. My sewing skills are poor at best, so this crafty endeavor went the way most of my sewing projects go- lots of swearing and me getting slightly hysterical halfway through. But, it turned out okay in the end.

This started out as a plain black medium men's tee shirt. The front is iron on transfers and the back is a corset style lace up I did using the tutorial found here:
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38788.0. The picture links are dead, but you can get the idea of how to put it together.

The front: Bite Me...Please!

The back

I ran out of ribbon, so the botton laces aren't done. I might get a thinner ribbon to use for the lacings so they will lay flat.

Also, does anyone know if fabric glue will stick to the iron on transfers? I wanted to embellish the text with little red rhinestones, but I don't know if it will work.

Any other Twilighters (or Twi-hards, Fanpires, or TwilightMOMS) out there?

Freaking AWESOME!

I love this so much, I seriously have no words...

That is waaaaaay cool! Even though I bounce back and forth between Slytherin and Ravenclaw, I have to say "Good job, Gryffindor!!"  Smiley

The crest looks amazing- you must have some serious patience.

Beautiful, beautiful. I love the pattern (wish I had bought the magazine). The outlining makes the cables look like they're carved or something. Awesome effect!
Great job!
