We finally finished the skirt about 2 hours before I was supposed to go to dinner (we bought the corset). Until I get the pictures developed, the only photo I can post was taken on a camera phone. Sorry I don't have a better one:

I really can't take any credit for the dress except the idea for it. My mom did all of the sewing. She also made a choker out of the same material and I added the locket my boyfriend gave me to it.

okay, so a little bit of progress: i've bought the corset i'll be wearing and i've decided on a skirt (i'm just not sure if i want a slit or not).

here's an idea of what it'll look like:

and here's a pic of the corset itself (sorry for the gratuitous boobage, but it's kind of unavoidable when you're wearing a corset  Smiley).

what do you guys think? to slit or not to slit? he he.   Wink

I'm not a "photographer," strictly speaking, but i love taking pictures. i don't have a digital camera (or a good regular film camera), so i use the camera on my phone instead. these shots were all done on my phone. here are a few of mine:

A ride at the Date Festival in Indio, CA

Another ride from the same carnival:

A sunset in front of my high school:

P.S.: Are heavily altered photos fair game for this thread, or are we focus on mostly untouched photos? Because I have a bunch of pics I've altered using PhotoPlus that I'm pretty psyched about & I'd like to show off.

P.P.S.: My avatar right now and most of the ones I use on this site were made by me. Wink

14  Bleeding valentines in Stitch And BOTCH by pikaboo26 on: February 13, 2007 09:50:50 PM
I was helping my little sis make some Valentine's Day cookies for her bf (and a few for mine) and I tried putting those little red hot candies on some small hearts for eyes, intending to add mouths made of icing later. The only thing was, no one told me that you're supposed to put them on AFTER baking the cookies. I didn't know they would melt with the heat. *slaps hand to forehead* Thankfully, we had set aside some extra dough to make larger hearts, so the whole project wasn't a complete disaster (unless you count my awful and hard to read writing in icing). It was actually pretty funny (and gross), though because the little ones looked like their eyes were bleeding:

Please tell me I'm not the only one dumb enough to have done this...

And, I guess if you hate Valentine's Day, dead valentine's might not be such a bad idea. Wink

15  Altered T-shirts (pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pikaboo26 on: February 13, 2007 05:31:07 PM
Most of my wardrobe consists of t-shirts (since they're cheap), so I'm always looking for quick ways to mix them up a little. Also, I can't sew, so I usually just take a pair of scissors to T and call it a night. Here are a few that I've cut up (somehow not all the pictures came out the same size):

A Harry Potter shirt that was a little too short-


A T-shirt from a local band that was too small-


A halter made from a waaaay too big blue t-shirt that used to have a pocket on the front-


I got most of my ideas from a book called Generation T. They're not really anything special, I just thought I'd share some ideas.  Smiley

I made this wallet for my sister about a year ago, but I didn't have the means to post it until now.

The front:


I truly suck at sewing. It took me forever to get the stitches even remotely straight (and even then I had to hide a few that were really awful). I'm amazed it has held up this well, actually. I got the basic pattern from Bazaar Bizarre but I had to fudge it a little because the cards didn't fit right the first time I tried it. I added the heart on a whim (and because I had some pink felt lying around). I plan to add some pink velcro to the inside so the thing will actually stay shut.

17  repurposed altoid tin in Completed Projects by pikaboo26 on: February 09, 2007 03:20:03 PM
I am addicted to altoids, as i know a lot of people are, and i have about 30 tins lying around at any given time. i've covered a few of them in fabric, but i made one that took a lot of effort and think it turned out the best. here it is (sorry for the crappy pictures!):

I used a nail file to scrape the paint off of the front to make it look like stainless steel (took forever!), then I painted along the edge with white nail polish and added some old-fashioned stickers to the lid. Right now I use it to store some bracelets I've made, but I've used it for a lot of different things. What do you think?
