1  Lolita Skirt - anyone done anything similar? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Xaneth on: March 04, 2008 06:07:14 AM

I saw this drawing of a girl in a really awesome skirt I'm thinking of trying to make, and was wondering if anyone's tried anything similar before? I had a quick search on craftster, but couldn't really find anything.
Any ideas?

2  Sleeves! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Xaneth on: February 05, 2008 03:56:50 PM
So I made these sleeves (which I've been thinking about for freaking ages) from a fleece I bought from a charity store for like 3.50. Yay. I don't have any pictures of the fleece, sorry, but it's pretty much a skeleton now. I love these things.

They cross at the back and attach themselves to each other, if you can imagine that.

Thanks for looking! Smiley

3  Mini Skirt Kilt Thing Woo. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Xaneth on: December 20, 2007 12:14:11 PM

Sorry for the dark photos! Finally got this finished. It's actually meant to be a prototype for a more kilty fabric I have, but wasn't sure if I had enough fabric, so tested it on this so I didn't make any mistakes. Quite happy with it, even if I don't really wear skirts. Smiley

It's a kilt style, so the front is flat, while the back is pleated. The pleats are quite big, I think I may make them deeper for the "real thing".

It joins together with velcro (which is hidden) and ribbons.

It goes on in kilt style too, ie, wrap around, here's a close up of one of the ends at the front...

...and the other end at the back, complete with screw up around one of the velcro parts when trying to attach the skirt to the band. >.>

Thanks for looking! Happy holidays!

5  3 meh sweater to kinda nice sweater! [new/better picturr!] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Xaneth on: September 21, 2007 02:54:08 AM
So here we begin out story for today:

a few sizes too big for me and really annoying sleeves. ewww.
so we decided we wanted to attempt this:

ambitious, aren't we?
so i got started! few days later, i got myself a fleece from another charity shop for another 3 because i didn't have enough of the stuff i had:

kitty tries to help, bless.
unfortunately, after much though, i couldn't bare to cut up the fleece, 'cause it was simply too fuzzy.

so we have our until-i-find-another-fleece-for-the-sleeves-and-collar kinda final product!

yay, proud. Cheesy too bad the picture's a little dark, 'cause i have tshirt underneath, but hopefully you can see how it's come out!

new picture! looks okay with a shirt. sorry about the flash + mirror thing, just moved into my new uni room so this is the best i can do for now. the sides are a little bobbly, but i'm not sure what i can do about that. i think it's just 'cause it wants to stretch and can't. not sure. anyway, there it is!

and yes, the sweater was knitted, no it wasn't wool so i couldn't felt it, but that didn't stop me! just a LOT of sewing over the same places twice. here's hoping it doesn't fall apart. >.>


EDIT: oops! forgot to add! when i finished i had a bit left from the sleeves, and being one not to waste, i made these! Cheesy

I love this! It's so awesome. Cheesy My sizing went a bit wrong, but I made my loops super big so you can't really tell as much. Thank you so much for this tutorial!

7  First bags. :O Fun yellow-time happiness! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Xaneth on: April 10, 2007 01:25:28 AM
So two days ago, finally decided to make my first bag with this awesome yellow fabric I got for like 4 for 2 metres. It hasn't got lining or interfacing or anything, but I still heart it, and I'm super proud Cheesy :

I plan on sewing on a felt bee (bees are awesome) as soon as I can buy some more felt (I previously lost my whole bag Sad).

Then yesterday rolls round, and I suddenly realise, I've completely forgotten about a friend's birthday present! I pull out some fabric and frantically think about what I could make her. About 4 and a half hours later, with one bag's experience, I come out with this (again, super super proud Cheesy):

She has the same phone as me, so I made a little pocket for her phone:

I had a previously made journal lying around that I decorated a bit for her too, and I even put a pocket in the lining! :O

Well that was scary... Anyway, I'm so happy with myself for both bags, especially the second that I did with very little experience (though the numerous tutorials all over craftster were a HUGE help!). Hopefully my friend will like it when she recieves it today!

Thanks for looking, and sorry for the blurry pictures! Undecided

8  Floppy kitty ear hat! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Xaneth on: March 04, 2007 01:53:10 PM
I first saw this awesome hat on the webcomic, MegaTokyo modelled by lovely Piro and decided that I HAD to have it. Unfortunately after a few searches, I couldn't find anything on craftster, so I was left to come up with my own pattern for it. I'm pretty new at sewing, and have never really made anything other than a few stuffies, so it was pretty challenging, but here we have it! Floppy kitty ear yay!


And the real thing!

I am smiling, really. >.>

It looked cute and all, but it couldn't say on my head, so I decided to put a band round it:

(Sorry it's a bit dark, and I got tired of trying to set the camera up on several books, yay for mirrors!)

I'm super proud of it, and it's all warm and fuzzy!
I plan on making another, (I originally wanted it in black, but don't have all that much black fleece left, so decided to make the first 'draft' with white) and I think I'll make the pink insides a bit smaller, and try to fix a few things, I'm really not that great at sewing, so the inside's full of loose threads!

Thanks for looking!

9  Really simple Sephiroth doll for a friend! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by Xaneth on: February 13, 2007 03:27:28 AM
So my friend was feeling pretty down lately, and he'd always bugged me to make a Sephiroth doll for him (I never did 'cause it looked reallyyy complicated, and I'm not all that great at sewing anyway), but to cheer him up, I decided to give it a shot.
He's not perfect, and I didn't change the design of his outfit a little, but I think he's cute and my friend agrees, so thought I'd share him with you all!

Sorry for the blurry picture, my camera hates me. He's just made with felt and wool for the hair. Smiley
