1  Shirts, Skirts and Dresses.... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by acidalbatross on: June 28, 2010 02:05:06 PM
Hi Guys,

 It has been a while since I've posted here, so I figure I'd show you some projects I've done lately. I also have some questions, any feed back would be nice, and my bf would appreciate it too- I keep on asking him questions that he just doesn't comprehend ("should I bring this seam in?"..... "uh.. sure"), poor guy.

this was made from one of my boyfriend's old shirts.

I may have to mess a little with this dress- I've lost some weight since I originally made it.

Okay, Thanks for looking, and I hope you have a nice day,

2  pop up ish book in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by acidalbatross on: August 19, 2007 07:47:53 AM
i'm not entirely sure whether this is actually a pop up book or not, it's more like a page from a pop up book. I got the idea for the construction from a book I found at the library. This was my first attempt, I basically decided get all the mistakes out of the way and hopefully next time come out with something better.
At any rate, here it is-

i need to figure out how to get the paper to stay straighter

thanks for looking!

3  b is for basil, assaulted by bears.. or why i love freezer paper in Stenciling: Completed Projects by acidalbatross on: July 07, 2007 11:31:19 PM
ok, this is my first post in this section, i just learned how to stencil using freezer paper- It's very addictive...

I found this fabric while i was raiding my mum's fabric stash, she wanted me to use this fabric for something, but i'm not really the sort who wants to wear clothing (in this case a skirt) with cute little children around the hemline, to remedy the... quaintness , i stenciled an image from edward gorey's The Gashlycrumb Tinies on the front of the skirt

this is the first one I did, it's john waters strangling a flamingo (though hopefully you can tell that on your own) I'm not especially happy with it, and as you can tell, i was not in an ironing sort of mood when i photographed it-

and last, the lovely marty feldman as Igor in Young Frankenstein- this is also on a skirt, in this case the fabric came from a hideous sheet that we inherited from my grandparents

ok, that's it for now, thanks for looking!

6  Pointy hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by acidalbatross on: November 14, 2006 06:16:14 PM
I did this hat instead of a paper one day, i used 3 different strands of yarn, 2 wool yarns and one alpaca, it is very warm (and pointy)

so what do you guys think?

the color is more accurate in this photo

so yeah, any feedback is appreciated (of course)

thanks for looking!

8  stripes and fishes and plaid and ...... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by acidalbatross on: October 09, 2006 09:13:53 PM
i made this skirt a little while ago out of big bag of scraps i had been saving from other projects, some of the piece were too cool to not use, but too small to make anything out of-

anyway.. here it is-

as you can probably see, the hem is a bit wonky from the fabric stretching, i'll probably still wear it, but i'm going to try to fix it somehow (any suggestions for this would be welcome)

thanks for looking, and (of course) feedback is welcome  Grin

9  plaid saddle shoes..... i love plaid in Shoes: Completed Projects by acidalbatross on: October 08, 2006 09:37:23 PM
once, a very long time ago, i had a wonderful pair of plaid converse, ever since the sad day that my mother decided that there were more holes than shoe left and discarded them, i have longed for another pair of plaid shoes,
here is my latest (and so far most successful) effort

the shoes were 3 dollars, and the part that is now plaid was a funny tan color-

any comments/ ideas are uber welcome

the dress is very soft inside, and both are uber-comfy-

any comments and suggestions are welcome- i think next i am going to fix my patten for the dress a little and make a purple on with sleeves
