1  Faulty Adidas leggings into strapless LBD in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by marleymiss on: August 05, 2019 01:16:04 AM

Hi Craftster, wow think it must have been 5 years since I last posted! I'm branching out into the world of dressmaking!

Had a bunch of terrible quality Adidas leggings, the stripes kept coming off and they were pretty see through. Customer service weren't very forthcoming with help or a refund, so voila! A very stripy dress, just in time for a music festival later this week!

No pattern, just tried to piece the legs together keeping the stripes as parallel as possible and then kept trying it on and pinning and nipping.

Hope you like it x

2  My first ever sewn garment - dolphin skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by marleymiss on: July 02, 2016 02:12:59 PM
My mom taught me how to sew today. I chose 4-way stretch fabric, much to my mom's chagrin. Both incredibly pleased with the result,finally a skirt I can wear to work that suits my personal style!

3  Crochet inspired by patchwork: Sawtooth star (Work in progress) in Crochet: Completed Projects by marleymiss on: January 17, 2016 02:41:03 PM
Hi all!

Started working on this blanket for my mom's birthday. Two days' work so far and I'm loving how it's coming along.

My mom is an avid patchwork quilter so when I discovered half-granny-squares I loved the idea of piecing them together to make a patchwork quilt design!

This is a sawtooth star, one of my mom's favourite blocks (nearly, but not completely, joined together). I'm hoping to add some smaller sawtooth stars around the outside and keep building to a double bed size.

4  Ninja Die Antwoord embroidered portrait in Needlework: Completed Projects by marleymiss on: July 23, 2014 05:32:39 AM
I really loved doing this portrait of Ninja from one of my favourite bands, Die Antwoord. Done in a 7 inch hoop I've been working on this for about a week for the embroidered portrait hoopla wall I'm collecting for. I added some gold-plated chain to bring the picture out of the frame and I'm really pleased with how it turned out.
Thanks for looking!

5  wedding gift embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by marleymiss on: July 10, 2014 02:06:39 PM
My cousin is getting married at the end of the month and here's what I made for her. Font for the names is from dafont.com and the rest I drew freehand onto the fabric.

6  Joanna Newsom embroidered portrait in Needlework: Completed Projects by marleymiss on: July 08, 2014 10:13:32 AM
I really enjoyed making this seven inch hoop. I used seed stitch, stem stitch, back stitch, satin stitch and French knots and it took me five days to make. She's one of my favourite musicians.

8  Portrait of my friend... in Needlework: Completed Projects by marleymiss on: December 14, 2012 02:16:15 PM
So my friend's mate is a really good illustrator and I contacted her behind his back to see if she'd help me out making him a Christmas present.

She drew this awesome picture of him and I embroidered it, all backstitch.

 The beauty of doing a collaboration like this is that I would never choose a picture with such a busy background normally as I don't like doing repetetive stitching but this looks really nice I think, I hope he loves it!

 Was a bit torn on whether to do the entire thing in black but opted for three different colours for the leaves to make it pop!
