1  Tin (wo) Man!! in Halloween Costumes by Cinderemma on: December 16, 2009 11:03:16 PM
Woah I'm posting this late.

This was my Halloween costume this year! I looked all over and finally found a fabric that was appropriately shiny. It is basically a draped dress with the straps giving it support.

The rivets were metal buttons that I found and spray painted a more silver color. The headband was my favorite part. I spray painted a funnel and super-glued it to a headband I already owned.

And the back:

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the length but It ended right about knee-length.

As always comments and criticism welcome!!

2  Corset Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Cinderemma on: December 16, 2009 10:51:04 PM
Hello everyone!

This is my first time making a corset and I am really happy about how it turned out!
The top part of the dress is sewn to the corset but the bottom is a separate skirt. I really wanted to have another tier in the skirt but I unfortunately ran out of fabric.

Sorry about the gross mirror pic.

I used this underbust corset tute to start and then just extended it upwards. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323906.0

3  Trashion Show Dress!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Cinderemma on: October 08, 2009 04:59:53 PM
So last semester Jay McCarol of Project Runway came to my school for a Q and A session. In honor of his visit the University Program Board put together a trashion show. (Clothes made out of trash or reused items.)

Here is my dress!! Big thanks to my friend for modeling it!

Here we are together

And here we are with Jay McCarol!

From the top down:

The headband is bicycle inner tube with a yoyo made of tablecloth.

The straps on the top were made from bicycle innner tubes, the bodice was made of seatbelts, the boobs were vinyl records and raffia placemats.

The bottom is made of a second hand table cloth, duct tape and the black part sticking out the bottom is crocheted vhs tape.

Even the shoes were bought from a second hand store and painted.

Comments and criticism always welcome!

4  Owl Purse! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Cinderemma on: January 17, 2009 10:01:53 AM
Hello Everyone!!

So I'm putting this up a bit late....but for my sorority's holiday party swap gifts that have to have cost less than 10$ and some part of it was to be created by the giver.

My swap partner absolutely loves owls and the color green. Lucky for me I already had some green fabric.

I used the pattern from this tutorial http://vintagericrac.blogspot.com/2008/01/1-hour-bag-tutorial.html

The buttons actually do match the green. My camera flash was being snarky...

Closeup of the yo-yos on the purse handle...

5  First jewelry attempts! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Cinderemma on: January 17, 2009 09:47:38 AM
Hello everyone,

I have recently started dabbling in jewelry making. So for Christmas I made each of my roommates a necklace. (btw the Michaels in my hometown was redone and now the bead selection is fabulous!!)

They are all done in the same style...

Comments and criticisms welcome!

6  Under the sea necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Cinderemma on: November 09, 2008 07:28:03 PM

Here is my latest jewelry project... I got the little charms at Michaels, but I designed the layout.

I really like the asymmetrical-ness of it.

And I made a little box to put it in...though I haven't decided who I'm giving it to yet.

Thanks for Looking!!

7  Queen of Hearts Costume!! in Halloween Costumes by Cinderemma on: November 09, 2008 07:10:59 PM
Hey everybody!

So this year I decided to be the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland.

I tend to find patterns confusing and constricting so I made the costume up as I went along.The skirt was real easy to whip up... especially cause it just has an elastic waist. The top on the other hand was a pain. It's constructed out of an old bra, posterboard, tape (both painters and duct) and a butt-load of hot glue.

Here are its guts. (Keep in mind that this was my first attempt ever at anything resembling a corset)

In this one you can see the crown I made and the sparklyness of the fabric on the top. I wish I had gotten a picture of the back. It laces up with red ribbon. (disregard the ninja. haha)

Thanks for looking!!

8  Re: Show off your dorm room! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by Cinderemma on: September 10, 2008 07:50:26 PM
Hi Everyone!

So I'm actually in an apartment this year, but last year I lived in a dorm. My roommate and I were lucky in that we got to pick an extra big room. Well here it is!!

My side of the room. As you can see, the sewing machine gets the place of honor on the desk. My computer is actually under the bed on one of the bed boxes. You can kinda see the dejected little cord snaking its way under the bedspread.

The view if you stand on top of my roommates bed. (Her side of the room is not pictured as it is disgracefully messy.)

The view if you stand on my bed. In the background there is my mini fridge which previously was a horrid shade of brown.

Thank you for looking!

9  Clock Face Needed Some Pizazz! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Cinderemma on: September 01, 2008 12:24:06 PM
I bought this boring 2$ clock from Target. It was soo mundane! So I livened it up!
haha. I was so excited after buying it that I forgot to take a picture until after I had already ripped out the hands.

I pulled out my magazine stash and my decoupage bottle and ended up with this:

10  Reupholstering 70's Ugly to Beautiful! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Cinderemma on: September 01, 2008 11:54:59 AM
So I spent most of my summer reupholstering this couch and chair for my apartment. It started off as a horrendously ugly set from the 70's, but since it was free and I'm cheap I couldn't turn it down. 20 yards of fabric and 3 months later I finally finished it!!  Grin

Before. (Excuse the messy garage.)

After: TA DA!!

Thanks for looking! Comments and criticisms welcome!
