1  COOKING / Dessert / Brother's 21st B-Day Cake on: July 02, 2007 12:18:06 PM
So i decided for my Brother's 21st i would make his cake.
As he is an American Football player, i decided to base his cake on that theme.

Introducing the American Football Pitch cake.



With Candles

It's just a basic sponge cake with jam and cream in the middle.
I brushed green food colouring over ready-to-roll icing.
Then i paint on the lines with icing in a tube.
I attached icing footballs to the side using more icing.
The posts are made from cocktail stick covered in duct tape.

He loved it!

Comments appreciated!
Thank you.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / History of Punk GCSE Dress on: April 22, 2007 04:06:10 AM
For my GCSE textiles course we were asked to make anything we wanted.
Well, i have a passion for punk and dresses, so i combined those two loves and got...



Detail of corset

Close-up of gathering and kilt pin

Pictures are transferred onto fabric using image maker & words are stencilled on using fabric paint.

Close up of bottom of skirt stitching (sorry about the blurriness)

I used the butterick B4254 pattern for the corset - which i modified- and the simplicity 5403 circle skirt pattern.

Hope you like.
Comments/criticism etc.

[Edit: I should add that all the images are of icons/bands from the Punk era (including Vivienne Westwood (my inspiration), Sex Pistols etc). The stencilled words are all lyrics from 'well-known' Punk songs.]
3  CLOTHING / Designer Clothing Homage / Amy Lee Dress...I'm in love and in need of help! on: November 01, 2006 11:00:40 AM
Hey all.
I am so glad i accidentally stumbled upon this forum as i need some help.

I am in love with the tartan dress that Amy Lee wore in the video of 'Call me when you're sober'.
But i really don't know where to start...i mean it looks really complex.
If anyone could point me in the right direction then i would love you forever!

(I can't seem to find a picture of it either...
So if anyone knows where i could find one that would be fab Grin)
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Super Duper Reversible Apron on: August 23, 2006 04:16:38 AM
I think this goes here...
This apron was made for one of my 'Textiles' projects at school.
(I do GCSE Textiles)
The theme was 'Stars in their eyes and hearts on their sleeves':

It is a black and white gingham cotton fabric on one side with a pink- striped heart pocket and tie/trim.

And the other side is the pink-striped fabric with a black and white gingham pocket and tie/trim.

So whatcha think?!

Love & junk.
5  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Party Planning / Any suggestions for a themed pool partay?! on: August 09, 2006 05:04:53 AM
It will be my "Sweet Sixteenth" on September 6th.
And we have one of those 'Fast Set Inflatable Pools' in the back garden, which i want to use for my party.
But i don't wanna be boring and just have people bring round their swimming cossies.
So i was wondering if anyone had any ideas for a themed party that incorporates a pool nicely.
(Bearing in mind that i don't want to do the obvious...Hawaiian as my friend did that)

Any suggestions for decor, food, games would be fab!

Love & junk
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help on first recon. I'm a newbie. >.< on: May 28, 2006 08:40:52 AM
Hey all.
Just started on my very first recon. but i have run out of inspiration.

I purchased this hideous black dress from a charity shop a couple of years ago for a halloween outfit.
I found it the other day in the back of my wardrobe && decided it needed bringing back to life.

Full view

Front view (Note that i cut the neckline)

Back view

Any tips on creating a fun, original && creative dress on a budget of scrap materials && other random sewing materials?!

Thanks xoxo
