11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue Dress with Scalloped Hem on: November 22, 2010 06:31:35 PM
I wanted something special to wear today...just because it's Monday! I drafted the pattern out of one of my mom's old dresses from the 80's, but I added sleeves, changed it to a sweetheart neckline and gave scallops a try...it really didn't work out too well.

I'm still satisfied with it though!

Side view. You can't really tell from the picture, but I find that the sweetheart neckline is really loose and kind of puckers out. I think I need to put a dart in somewhere, but I'm not sure where.

Close up of the scallop. Uhm, so the problem with this is that I sewed it inside out. And then I gave up and was too lazy to unstitch everything so I just basted it and left it. It gives it that unfinished sort of look!...sort of.
12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / First 3" Cheer Bow! on: November 12, 2010 12:32:29 AM
So here's my first attempt at making a 3" cheer bow! It's constructed of zebra grosgrain, black satin,a nd some sort of shiny, white, knit ribbon material, and the rhinestones were hot glue gunned on. I have a feeling that I should've used fabric glue instead, though- anybody have experience with this?

Thank you so much for all of the tutorials! I'm trying to make a cheerleading outift for a Barbie right now...do you have any advice on how to make the crop top stay?
14  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / First Inchies- shoe themed! [IMG HEAVY] on: October 06, 2010 10:41:42 PM
So it's my friends birthday next week, but he also lives on the other side of the continent! And you know, mailing stuff gets expensive...but then all of you wonderful people inspired me! My friend loooves his sneakers, so I tried to write a story about choosing the right shoes...but I honestly don't think the inchies told the story!  Undecided

This is the cover of the book. I was trying to draw one of those Nike Dunks!

It's hard to see, but the purple behind the shoe is actually a painted sheet of music.

The pink one is my favourite of all. It's so glittery and polka dotted and rhinestoned!

The one on the left is supposed to be a dress shoe in a night scene of a city...

The end!

C&C would be fantastic, and also, does anybody have suggestions on how to cut them? I used a ruler and a pen knife, but I'm not too satisfied with how they ended up.

16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hello, Craftster! I actually made something! on: July 23, 2010 11:21:42 PM
Seeing all these fabulous rompers made me really want one, but since three of my best friends' birthdays are in the next two weeks, buying one didn't seem to be an option! I wanted to get back into sewing, so this seemed like a good starting point! Aaand therefore, the sewing machine was whipped out...for the first time in years. I would like to say that I whipped this up in a matter of hours, but really, it took a few uhm, days. Maybe more like two weeks, but that was only because I was occupied with other things!  Wink

I love this fabric. It's a wonderful zebra/giraffe print, and it's soo lovely to touch! And would you look at those pockets! I really am quite proud of it. I used McCall's M6083, for reference. Smiley

Ahh, I've been wanting to make a pair of these forever, but I've never found the willpower to draft my own pattern. Yours looks terrific!
