42  my first forays into embroidery... very picture heavy in Needlework: Completed Projects by nat_attack on: May 01, 2007 11:09:24 AM
so i only recently picked up the needle and floss again after a 14-year hiatus? I leanred from my grandma when i was small but never really got into it again until now. these are my first few projects, in chronological order...

this was my second attempt... a swallow. my first attempt was some god-awful ltus flower that i lost. i just drew it on the material (a cut-up pair of men's pants) and went from there. I think the stitches I used were satin stitch and split stitch but i'm not sure.

my next attempt was on an actual piece of clothing. i made this hooded shrug but it was too plain so i jazzed it up a bit with evil/good robots!!

the hoodie on

next i decided to do something for a friend of mine. i embroidered her name with a lotus flower and an om sign. the color of her name is a maroon color ith gold drop shadow, it looks darker in the picture.

and the most recent one (also my personal fave!) is this crazy psychedelic owl i made for my friend danielle. i think she's gonna make it into a patch.

for scale

closeup of my stitches

thats all! i hope you like them,, any tips would be great as i'm still a beginner and i dont know a lot of the stitches haha

43  gray and black jumper dress with silver buttons in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by nat_attack on: April 18, 2007 12:36:49 PM
i was so inspired by this post:


I decided to try it for myself. however, i made it way too long. so now, may i present: the jumper dress.

bad pic to show the length. i almost wish I hadn't put the pockets on there. what do you think?

closeup of the awesome vintage buttons. there's buttons on the pockets, too... not pictured.

i love it, it's comfy. i have tons and tons of that gray striped jersy knit... what will i do with it all?

what do you think?

44  double-breasted super twirly green and blue indian skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by nat_attack on: April 17, 2007 08:45:32 PM
i feel like i could twirl away.!!

i've been meaning to do something with this fabric for ages. it's got shiny silver thread in it!

 here's the waistband:

the buttons are so shiny :p

i wish i had an action shot. maybe tomorrow. it's made out of crinkly cotton, kind of gauzy... great for warm weather! the buttonholes are all functional~ i can't believe i was patient enough for that Tongue it's crazy twirly, thought i havent "dance floor tested" it yet.

I'm thinking it might need a little embellishment, but i'm not sure. any suggestions are appreciated.

45  party crab!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by nat_attack on: April 17, 2007 03:03:53 PM
so i had a size M gym class heroes tee, the "party crab" edition. no before pics, but here's an after:

i cut up an old tank top (the blue) and changed around the neckline, added a band to the bottom and the sleeves, and also took it in to make it more slim fitting.

can you tell i like it?

47  polka dot babydoll top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by nat_attack on: April 08, 2007 03:03:13 PM
Sorry for the crappy pics... and the ridiculous faces. The true colors are navy blue and white polka dots with a white band at the top and silver buttons.

i think i like polka dots too much.

48  reconned shz :polka dot flats: in Shoes: Completed Projects by nat_attack on: April 08, 2007 02:00:03 PM
so i had these played out rasta flats from walmart:

i was pretty bored with them, so i ripped all the stuff off 'em and reconned 'em into these babies:

it was my first at shoe reconning, i used a hot glue gun and the "fold over" method. the blue is bias tape. the buttons have anchors on them, even though you cant really see.

theyre about a size too big, which sucks, but i'll wear them anyway Smiley

49  black white polka dotted tube top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by nat_attack on: March 15, 2007 06:20:36 PM
Well I made this about three months and ten pounds ago, haha. I had my mom's camera the other day and thought, "hey i never put this on craftster, i'll take some pics" and let me tell you it was a SQUEEZE! maybe after i get my lazy ass to the gym i'll bust it out, haha. anyways, here it is:

da front

da back

there is a black band at the top AND bottom, but the bottom band blends in with my black pants Smiley

50  A productive day off... 3 shirts (img heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by nat_attack on: February 28, 2007 08:23:47 PM
Well I had a day off today so I took a bunch of shirts I had and made these three little numbers.


This is my favorite one. The turquoise floral fabric is from a thrifted 60's blouse that I got for a DOLLAR. The black is the remains of a polo shirt.

I sewed the yoke uneven at first. To correct it I added a dart and little ties.

I originally had these big ol' puff sleeves on there but it was too overwhelming. I downgraded to these cute lil ruffle sleeves.


The pink was a long sleeved pajama shirt and the polka dot is some fabric I had laying around. Pretty conservative, right?

BAM! It's backless!

A close-up of the awesome anchor buttons I found in my grandma's vintage button stash!

The true colors of the shirt... light pink & navy blue with white polka dots.


This is a cute one. The white was a Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt. I cut the logo out and covered it up with parts of an old pajama top.

The back

Bust detail.  I know there's a hole in the sleeve.

I <3 puff sleeves!! You can see the cool purple buggie fabric here too.

I'm done! Comments and constructive criticism welcome Smiley You guys are so inspiring!!
