1  Michael Jackson Stained Glass in Glass Crafts: Completed Projects by JackieWhite on: October 17, 2009 09:10:31 PM
I started this on a whim the night before Michael died, and only just finished 2 weeks ago. It became more emotional (I've been a HUGE Michael fan for 10 years-I don't think I'll ever be over his death) than I ever would've wanted.  Cry
I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and I kept breaking my glass while I was cutting it, so it looks hella wonky and uneven. But my mum's glass grinder was calling my name and I couldn't say no. I knew how to solder from silversmithing classes I had taken, so I figured it was close enough to stained glass making that I wouldn't end up killing myself!
The background glass was a horrible choice. I went to the shop looking for pretty, and thought nothing of practicality. It was only after I had broken half of my sheet of glass that I realized it'd probably look better if I lined up the marbling.   Roll Eyes

But, for my first time, with pretty much no prior knowledge, not knowing what the hell I was doing, I think it turned out...decent (okay, and a bit embarrassing)  At least you can tell who it's meant to be!  Embarrassed

Maybe I'll take a class before I try my next one  Tongue

2  Re: Come one come all post your new tattoo IDEAS! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by JackieWhite on: June 16, 2008 08:31:14 PM
I turn 18 in August, and one of my birthday presents is a tattoo. 
I'm pretty sure I want my first one to be the veterinary symbol.   I'm entering college for my BS in vet science, and hoping to eventually get into vet school.  I'm horribly unmotivated when it comes to school, but I figure if I have something permanent to remind me that it's my passion, it'll give me the drive to get through schooling.

I've seen it with angel wings as well, but I'm not sure I like that.

Any suggestions on whether or not to get it with detail(ie: scales on the snake, etc) and color?  Or would that just look tacky?

3  Dog paw stockings in Winter Holidays by JackieWhite on: November 24, 2007 07:28:52 PM

(sorry about the camera phone pic.  They're green w/ red, and red w/ green)

I made these tonight for my 2 puppies.  It was really easy and I think they turned out cute. Smiley
The cuff is made of of some weird faux fur, the paw is fleece, and the pads are felt.  They're about the same size as normal stockings.

I want to put their names(Nikki and Kody) on them but I don't know if it would clutter them or not.  Any suggestions? 
Hope you like. Smiley

4  2 still life drawings in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by JackieWhite on: March 31, 2007 02:19:22 PM
These are 2 drawings I did a while ago and I like them the best out of all I've done.  Thought I'd share. Smiley

5  Question about fabric type in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by JackieWhite on: October 26, 2006 04:13:24 PM
So, I bought this really awesome neon leopard print fabric from Joann's a few months ago, but I have absolutely no idea what to do with it.

It's sort of a canvas type (it was in the outdoor fabric part) but it's sort of...more soft than normal canvas.  More cabable of being clothes, I guess...if that makes sense.
Anyway, I've wanted to make a skirt out of it, but since I only look decent in circle skirts, I've put it off.   It doesn't seem like it'd flow well enough to be one.
SO, finally my question.   What kind of skirts (or anything else: dresses, shirts.  I have enough of it) would work for this type of material?   I don't want it to rot away in my fabric stash.

*sorry if the picture's big.  Photobucket is a douche*

Well, I'm jumping aboard.  And since I just got a really drastic cut today, I want to show it off! Cheesy

So, it went from this

To this

A-lines are fun.  Now I need to bleach it.
This is the shortest I've EVER had it.  Before this, the shortest was shoulder length, and the longest I've had it was thigh length.
I feel naked now.

*sorry about the large pictures.  photobucket is being a douche*

7  Fishies and dyed lace in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by JackieWhite on: August 10, 2006 12:59:29 PM
This skirt, though only a plain circle skirt, is one of my favorites.  I love fishies.
It was a pain, however.  I do my measurements all mathematically, but circle skirt waistbands always end up being too large on me.  I have no idea why.   
There was going to be orange tulle instead of the lace, but it wouldn't sew right, and I'm too dense to figure out how to make it not fray.  So I went with this lace trim we had laying around.  After 2 failed attempts (ended up too short) and 3 bottles of old 70s fabric dye, I FINALLY got that.
And I <3 it.

As with all my clothes, they're not crooked; I am.

Close up

It was worth it.  I got many compliments at the fashion square yesterday.

Comments?  Criticism?  Advice on how to hem/sew tulle?

8  Re: sewing mannequins in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by JackieWhite on: August 01, 2006 08:30:03 PM

My mum ordered me that one from Hancock for my birthday.  It was made by Dritz, I think.  I was hoping it would've arrived today, to go along with the sewing machine I recieved.  Hopefully it arrives soon.
It orginally cost $130, but we got $25 taken off, for some reason.

Aw, thanks everyone!

10  Flouncyful gingham skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by JackieWhite on: July 30, 2006 01:42:09 PM
My first patterned skirt.  It fits wonky; I think because the pattern calls for the skirt to sit at your natural waist, and I wear my skirts at my hips, because I lack greatly in the waist area.  It's a little big in the back, but it ended up costing only $1.50, so I can't complain.

It's not crooked..I am.  It's also not see-through.  That's just an unfortunate spot for a shadow to appear.

Close up of the fabric.

Comments will produce love.  Cheesy
