1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ice Cream Parlor / Breakfast Nook on: August 23, 2009 01:40:03 PM
Hello fellow craftsters, here's my obligatory "I haven't posted any of my crafts in forever, but here's one now." posts.

Before this was my great great grandmother's set of ice cream parlor chairs and table she kept in her bed and breakfast where she let sailors stay for free, and made donuts for all the tenants at 3 a.m. every morning

And now it's my new breakfast nook! The table cloth is just picnic table vinyl, it's like $2/yd and I've got a lot left over for an actual picnic!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / ANOTHER floral skirt? on: February 03, 2009 12:57:34 AM
So I love floral skirts, and to prove it, here's a picture of what I was wearing when I was making this skirt

On to the skirt. Hancock's is having a pattern sale, all butterick patterns are $1.99 so I got a whole handful. I sewed this skirt, B5285

I haven't hemmed it yet because I'm not sure if I want to bring it above knee length or not, but I'll hem it eventually... maybe  Roll Eyes

3  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Oh Wilma, my patience is wearing thin! on: November 05, 2008 06:49:53 PM
Hey crafty cats, I spent two weeks making my friend Tae and I Wilma Flintstone, and Betty Rubble costumes.

I made them with jersey, and fun fur. I also made matching purses, and we drew on Barney and Fred tattoos, since we didn't have dates! haha
We also wrote on pebbles and handed them out over the night, they said things like "your costume rocks!"
4  COOKING / Dessert / milkshake cupcakes on: July 31, 2008 01:59:48 AM
I haven't posted on craftster in forever, but I still lerk constantly. I was sad today so I decided to make myself feel better by whipping up some sweet treats! I used the william's sonoma cupcake kit, and a couple decorating ideas from the interwebs, etc haha. They were deeeelicious, and adorable!

5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Moccasins [4 images] on: March 28, 2008 02:35:43 AM
When I moved to San Francisco for school, I couldn't bring my sewing machine. So I've been dipping my hands in apartment-sized crafts, like embroidery, and moccasins!
I bought this yummy fabric on the haight ashbury, it's really soft on the inside, and this delicious suede on the outside. I tore apart my friend's boyscout moccasins for the pattern, but ended up adjusting a lot of it. To fit my feet, and used half the holes so I could use leather lacing instead of shoe laces. They are easy to slap together, it's cutting the holes in the fabric that's hard! I was using a grommet pusher, but there aren't many "craft" stores in Frisco.. plenty of art stores though haha.

I know I know, less talk more show!

^^The goods.

^^Super close up of cozy-to-the-maxx fabric

^^ In progress, like my work desk/position? haha

^^ Finished mocc!

They're not the cutest, but they're so soft, it doesn't even matter!
I'm thinking I could just attach soles to the bottom if I make an eye-pleasing enough pair... we'll see! Thanks for l Shocked Shocked king!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / little black... and blue dress on: July 20, 2007 12:34:02 PM
So I bought a pattern that looked cute, but upon sewing the bodice, it didn't look anything like the picture.. I think it was my fabric selection. So I just drafted an easy pattern for the top and wung it.
It looks the same without the belt, I promise haha.
Close up of the top
I call this "the skirt of many pleats!"
and, you probably can't tell but there are two huge pleats in the back, and they turned out really cute.. wish I had a better picture.

Anyways, thanks for looking ya'll!  Cheesy Cheesy
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Cute dress with pockets: Simplicity 3744 Sewing Pattern on: July 11, 2007 01:40:44 AM
I got a new sewing machine, i've been sewing up a storm.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nautical cabinet! on: May 27, 2007 10:49:34 AM
So my beau and I found a cabinet-type-thing next to a dumpster. It had these weird legs on it, so we kicked them off... and went crazy.
Here's what she looked like when we started:

and here she is now! We painted parts of it navy blue (it probably looks black in these pictures.)

Here's a close up of the handles, they're little cardboard.. uhh.. things? From Michael's we got them for a quarter each and just super glued them on haha.

And the swirly design on the top is actually a rope inlay, I saw them do it on the DIY network, you carve a design into the wood and then glue the rope in, so we did that and then painted the rope to match:

And just for height comparisons(i'm 5"4)--

Tell me what you think!

++ We also got 50 comic books for $5 at half price books this weekend, and we're going to collage them all inside the cabinet, we wanted to do it on the actual cabinet, but it would've clashed with our nautical theme.... so we decided to hide it!
9  NEEDLEWORK / Sublime Stitching Embroidery / First finished project on: January 17, 2007 11:09:42 PM
I've had these shoes for going on four years now, and I've been waiting for them to bust holes in the toes. So I decided to give them a little flavor, and cover up some dirt haha. I've done a few practice runs on napkins etc, and not using an embroidery ring wasn't as horrible as I though it would be. One of my patterns got moved in the ironing process so one of the skulls has more of an oval head, what can you do? Tell me what you think! I used the stitch-it kit I got for Christmas.


10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Black and white and insect purssse on: December 06, 2006 08:50:49 PM
So for our school's fashion club, we're doing a fundraiser to raise money for our end of the year fashion show. Our fundraiser is handmade items by members of the club, I chose to do purses. I have to have ten by monday morning.. I have one right now.. yowza.
I'm a big fan of this one though, the interfacing was a little tricky at first.
The front
The back
The front and inside pocket detail
And I cut to many of the bottom peice  Undecided so I made a matching sleep mask in hopes that the extra goody will make someone want to buy it!

So would you buy this purse, if for no other reason than to support our club??

haha thanks for reading guys!
