6  Re: my polka-dotted hood hoodie with devil horns!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lil_ballet_girl on: April 10, 2006 05:06:57 PM
Hi!! So FINALLY i finnished this tutorial!
Here it iiiis!

Okay so I decided I wont make a tut on how to make the hoodie itself (since I noticed I suck badly at

tutorial making) but don't worry, it's a basic hoodie! I took one of my fav Puma hoodies and drafted a

pattern. It's simple.

As for the horns and hood lining, here's the tuts.

You will need : big enough scraps of your hoodie
                       stuffing (whatever works for you is fine, i used old coat linning)
                       sewing machine (of course you could do it by hand, just make sure you sew it strongly)
          Needle and thread (to sew the finnished horns on hood)
          material for the linning
First things first: the horns. Why not the lining? Keep on reading and you'll see!

Draw a pattern if you're not confortable with cutting it out raw from the material, but this step is optional.

Step two (if you made the pattern) use it! Pin the pattern to your material and cut!

Step three: do as my drawings say.

Step four: Flip your horns on the right side. Take your stuffing and, yes, you guessed it, stuff the horns!

Step five: the most frustrating, hard step in this hole project : sewing the horns on the hood..*cringe*
. Okay but this is the most importent thing so here we go, take a deep breath! Oh but wait, if you are good

at sewing by hand, this is going to be like cake for you, eh, lol!  

the tricky part is to sew it so the tread wont show. The thing is you have to fold the material at the end so

when you sew, the seam wont show because it will be underneath. Yes, this is very hard to explain. It's

like when you make a stuffed animal, you have to leave a gap to stuff it, right? Well when you close the seam,

it's exactly the same thing you have to do to sew on the horns! Ouf, that was hard to explain!
So far so good? I hope so! Now on to the hood lining!

Now, the reason for the linning was mostly because after I finnished sewing the horns, I could see the hem

in the inside of the hood where the linning is supposed to be. If that wouldn't of happened, I would have left

it "linningless" because usually we sew linning before we sew the hood on the hoodie. But anyways, it's

doable the other way around.

So first of all, take the same mesurements you used to make the hood by itself (i can't tell you exactly

because it might vary from one hoodie to the next). Basically what you do is sew a second hood but with

the linning material you chose. This is slightly harder to sew on when you've already sewn the hood on the

hoodie! So is you haven't started yet, I, if I were you, would consider doing this before. But i'll explain how I

did it in case some of you made the same mistake as me!

Let's pretend my paper is your linning.

Fold the material at the end:

And then sew it on where i am pointing:

You have to sew all around (logically!!)

Okay so now, after struggulling trought the understanding of my tutorial, you should get I nice final product!!
If there are many unclear explanations, please pm me! Don't be shy! Wink Eek! There's full of unwanted spaces in this post! Uuhg! To lazy to fix it! anyways ...lol

Cya guys later! Smiley

8  clothes for TY teenie boppers (kind of dolls) a bit img heavy in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by lil_ballet_girl on: February 28, 2006 02:33:16 PM
Hi everyone! When I was 10 I got I collection of Ty Teenie Boppers (check pic if you don't know what it is) . At the store, they were selling some cute outfits ( i wouldn't have bought them to "play dolls", but I think if I were to sell them after with outfits it would be worth more money Wink Cheesy )  So anyways I decided to make a collection of clothes for the dolls! Check it out (excuse crappy pics Wink ) :
 The red one is a pyjamas, green is a robe and the teddy squares are slippers...plz don't laugh, they where my firsts!

This is one of the TY teenie boppers modeling a halter top/dress and cream color codoroys

This TY is modeling a green silk "gown"

Here are burgondi sweat pants with cute marguerite flower buttons and a white cami

These are one of my favorites: the pink lace tutu, ballet slippers included!

This is a velvet "special occasion" dress and a velvet halter top to go with it

Here are some misc items: The green is a bag (u know the ones with a drawstring) the blue on the right is a sexy ( Wink ) party top and on the left is a hair bandana!

Okay that's it folks! Thanks a bunch for looking Grin

9  my polka-dotted hood hoodie with devil horns!!!TUTORIAL p.2!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lil_ballet_girl on: February 28, 2006 12:28:59 PM
I saw this girl in my school that had I hoodie with devil's horns on the hood! It was instant love (for the hoodie not the girl Wink ) I searched all the stores I know that could sell it but none had one like hers. There was only one solution, make one!! I added polka dots in the hood for extra originality and cuz i love polka dotties! I took iron on letters to spell my name. So I have i couple pics of the final product:

What do you think?

OKay thanks for looking! Smiley
