11  I've decided that since it's stuffed... in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by SaccharineSunshine04 on: May 14, 2009 05:28:45 PM
it's a toy!

In my 3D design class, we had a unit over fabric and sewing. We could either a) cover an object in fabric, b) make fabric food, or c) make a "rigid object" from fabric. I chose to make the one thing I've always wanted!

That's right, a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. I've also always wanted it to be hot pink, although during the research portion of this assignment I discovered that they only make light pink or red.

For unit three, we had to make a video with something we made in it or a kinetic sculpture. I chose the video and did a stop motion of my mixer making cupcakes.

Close up of bowl and delicious cupcakes that I also made. The only thing I had real trouble with was the bowl. I could not make anything with a bowl shape, so I gave up and covered one of my cereal bowls.

I've decided that I must really like cupcakes because I made about 4 dozen for this video.  Smiley

My goodies!

West Side Story mirror! If you can't read it, it says 'Who's that pretty girl in that mirror there? Who can that attractive girl be?' I love this. I'm hanging it up as soon as I buy some of those Command Strips. Grin

Wicked box! I love this too.

Inside. The outside edges have lyrics to Defying Gravity.

And a How to be Popular manual. I'm totally going to fill this up because I totally know all the rules.

And candy!

13  Charcoal Drawings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by SaccharineSunshine04 on: February 27, 2009 06:49:38 PM
I'm a first year art student.  Grin I originally planned on being an English major, then switched to fashion design. I am in over my head. I guess I just imagined that art would be easier (not because it's less difficult, but because I like it more.), but I am learning that I know nothing. It's wonderful! Anyway, the fashion portfolio was due today, and I'm terribly nervous. I just wanted to show some drawings because I think that's my weakest point.

My example of a still life, my first charcoal drawing from drawing 1! We were learning additive/subtractive methods, I think.

And then, in drawing 2, I decided to stick with charcoal because it's very forgiving, and this was my example of two point perspective. I hate two point perspective, for the record. I cannot get those vanishing points right. And the shadows are wrong for the birdhouse because I left out several objects that made different shadows. We only had to have three objects in two point and one incline. Smiley

Any pointers? Tips? Tricks? Comments? Help the poor girl who only wants to sew!

14  At Least in My Mind Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by SaccharineSunshine04 on: January 11, 2009 07:35:38 PM
So, I dubbed this the 'At Least in My Mind Dress' because I bought the Simplicity 3673 pattern with the intention of making view C and being awesome and retro.

Instead, I used this zig-zaggy knit fabric I bought on sale at JoAnn's even though the pattern recommends using wovens.

The fabric reminded me of Missoni. I thought it'd be cool and chic.

I like it best with a belt.

Closeup of bust. They recommended using wovens for a reason. It was hell trying to make darts with that stretchy fabric. Sorry it's so shiny, trust me though, they're weird looking. And the belt loops are stretching out already.

I didn't have to hem it though, the fabric already had this nice lace-ish stuff around the edge.

Cute? Tacky as I think it is in retrospect? Comments? Critiscism?

I'm going to use the leftover fabric to fulfill the original purpose of this fabric, and I plan on making view C and redoing view B as soon as I get a good deal on 6-7 yards of black fabric. Let's call this one practice.  Grin

15  Terribly Late Little Red Riding Hood Costume in Halloween Costumes by SaccharineSunshine04 on: December 15, 2008 12:30:16 PM
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who lived in a village near the forest.  Whenever, she went out, the little girl wore a red riding cloak, so everyone in the village called her Little Red Riding Hood.

One morning, Little Red Riding Hood asked her mother if she could go to visit her grandmother as it had been awhile since they'd seen each other.

"That's a good idea," her mother said.  So they packed a nice basket for Little Red Riding Hood to take to her grandmother.

When the basket was ready, the little girl put on her red cloak and kissed her mother goodbye.

"Remember, go straight to Grandma's house," her mother cautioned.  "Don't dawdle along the way and please don't talk to strangers!  The woods are dangerous."

"Don't worry, mommy," said Little Red Riding Hood, "I'll be careful."

But when Little Red Riding Hood noticed some lovely flowers in the woods, she forgot her promise to her mother.  She picked a few, watched the butterflies flit about for awhile, listened to the frogs croaking and then picked a few more. 

Little Red Riding Hood was enjoying the warm summer day so much, that she didn't notice a dark shadow approaching out of the forest behind her...

Suddenly, the wolf appeared beside her.

"What are you doing out here, little girl?" the wolf asked in a voice as friendly as he could muster.

"I'm on my way to see my Grandma who lives through the forest, near the brook,"...

I used Simplicity pattern 3618. Also, I forgot that I moved to a dorm room with no hammer, so I couldn't do the grommets on the vest. And of course, I waited until Oct. 30th to figure that out.  Undecided

The cape was the only part that really told what I was. It's also the part I love the most. I used velvet, which was really expensive, but whatever.

Next year, my friends and I want to do theme costumes and go as a group. Any suggestions for a group of 8-10 people?

Comments? Questions?

16  Sarah Palin Stencilled Shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by SaccharineSunshine04 on: September 26, 2008 06:32:00 PM
I go to a very liberal school, so I see all these Barack Obama shirts all the time. But I love Sarah Palin! So I made a Palin shirt for my friend Julian, who also loves her.

On to pics (they're crappy cell pics until I buy batteries):

That's right! VPILF. I know the letters are crooked, but forgive me, my ironing board is miniature and was balancing on the edge of my desk. My sewing machine takes up a lot of room.

Can you tell it's her? I made the stencil using the picture from her website, one of the tutorials here, I don't remember which, and fabric markers. It bled a little bit, but I think it adds to the cuteness.

On Julian. He wore it the day after I gave it to him. He loves it. I love him.

Crappy action shots!

Comments/criticism? Not about Palin, just the shirt. Julian says I should make one with McCain on the front and 'PILF', but no, because I wouldn't.

17  Re: I miss Harry Potter Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by SaccharineSunshine04 on: September 26, 2008 06:18:33 PM
I went home, but my camera batteries died. Sorry beforehand for the crappy cell phone pics, but I'm a college student now and I don't feel like spending $6 on more batteries...I'd rather buy fabric for my Halloween costume. Anyways, on to the pics!

All my goodies.

The bag says, "Just because you have the emotional range of a teaspoon doesn't mean we all have." and it has a teaspoon charm in Gryffindor colors.

Bumper stickers! I put those in my window so people on the street realize my obsession.

A little trunk in Gryffindor colors!

Full of crystals!

A dragon! I don't know what kind, but I'll bet it's a cool one.

Journal with a castle on the front and a special message inside.

And a wand! I wanted one so bad! It matches my university colors too.

And a Shrinky Dink time turner! It's really really hard to take a good picture of it, but it's cute and now I can manipulate time!!!

Thank you, SidekickFancy!

18  Re: Going Off to College Gallery~! :) in The Swap Gallery by SaccharineSunshine04 on: September 26, 2008 06:08:20 PM
I went home and got my package!!!

A "Dino Love" tote, a Monster Book of Obsessive Compulsive Planning, and my own Golden Snitch!

The Snitch is so cute!

But my favorite thing is the planner!

It has intestines!

Thanks, cougalicious!

19  Octopus: An Elegy in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by SaccharineSunshine04 on: March 17, 2008 12:58:16 PM
I have a story for everything. My boyfriend gave me yarn and crochet hooks for Christmas.  Grin
So, I decided for Valentine's Day I'd make him an octopus from PepperKitty's tutorial, https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=114316.msg1092363;topicseen#msg1092363.
Then, on February 13th. He broke up with me.  Cry
So, I gave the octopus I spent a week slaving over to my friend Larke. Tongue She appreciates it more anyways.
Enough story! On to the octopus!

He gets points for buying me pretty yarn.

I thought it would be a boy, so I named it Maurice.

But after I finished it looked like a girl, so I gave it a little pink bow. Her name was still Maurice.

Back! I think Larke named her Laurel? One of her legs ended up being sewn a little bit below the other seven, so she looks a little gimpy. Can you tell?

20  Sheet Dress! *PIC OBESE* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by SaccharineSunshine04 on: February 28, 2008 03:04:09 PM
This is Bailey.

She is nuts.

She decided that she needed a dress made from a Pokemon sheets and said she's glad her other half (me!) sews, so she drew this.

But it turns out, she has no Pokemon sheets. So she gave me a turquoise sheet instead.

Presenting, The Amazin' Poke Jumper (in turquoise)!

As modeled by my floor

Pocket detail. Star button!

Strap detail. The buttons are a random yellow one, a 'B' for Bailey, and a star. The buttons that actually hold the jumper up are blue/green stripey.

Bailey actually wearing it. In the center of the band hall, mind you.
