1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Shirts, Skirts and Dresses.... 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I may have to mess a little with this dress- I've lost some weight since I originally made it.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  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions / Cheap and Transportable decorations? on: June 06, 2010 05:54:29 AM

I just moved into a new place, it's campus housing (I'm tagging along while my boyfriend gets his masters), so I can't make any permanent changes. Do any of you brilliant craftsters have any ideas of how to make this white painted box feel like a home? I'd show you pictures, but they would bore you to death, white white white....

We will be moving out in August, so any decorations that would be easy to pack away and use at our next place would be ideal. It seems a little silly to decorate for a few months, but I know I'll feel better every minute I'm here if it was a homier.

If you are wondering what kind of decorations I go for, heres a picture of my room a few years ago-

These days I value simplicity a little more, but I still love bright colors and unusual stuff.
Any help would be very very appreciated,


3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / pop up ish book 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!
4  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / b is for basil, assaulted by bears.. or why i love freezer paper 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!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / (another) Black jumper... also known as my favorite piece of clothing on: February 20, 2007 02:51:59 PM
HI, i made this a couple of weeks ago out of dollar a yard fabric-

sorry for the messy room....... any comments are welcome!
6  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / it's a big red bomber! on: February 20, 2007 02:04:26 PM
This was my 3rd attempt at a red bomber, i ended up using seven strands of yarn and size 15 needles, and i made up the pattern as i went along-
here is is on me-

and by itself-

hope you like it, and comments are welcome  Wink
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sew your own socks? on: November 19, 2006 10:32:16 AM
I need more over the knee socks, but i'm sorta in a money crunch, so I want to try to make some out of stretchy material. I was thinking that i could make some kickass socks with fun prints or old t-shirts with logos.. has anyone tried anything similar?  any thoughts? I am a little worried about the foot bit..

thanks   Smiley

8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Pointy hat 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?
9  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / purple hunting cap on: October 17, 2006 06:00:59 PM
this is my latest hat, it's a little goofy, but i love it-

the color is more accurate in this photo

so yeah, any feedback is appreciated (of course)

thanks for looking!
10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / stripes and fishes and plaid and ...... 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
