1  Easy Apron with Casing! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jezzyloo on: December 23, 2007 01:34:02 AM
My friend Rach told me that all she wants for Christmas is an apron. I went to the store and picked out a pattern on sale, but when I started cutting it out, I got extremely impatient. I knew that an apron had to be more simple than six pieces. So I dug through my pattern box and found my easiest dress pattern (Simplicity 3742), modified the front piece, cut 2, sewed them right-sides together leaving a place for strap casing at the top and waist, flipped it right side out, sewed the casing, and put the ribbon in. Easy as pie!

I of course had to make a prototype so I didn't ruin any of the material that my gift recipients liked, so I used this $1/yard shiny red stuff (Walmart is love!). I like it. On my next ones, I'll probably make it an empire-waist instead, because it's a little too low-rise for me, but I'm so excited! I haven't made anything nearly as successful in a few months. Time to get back on the wagon...

I know it still needs to be ironed, but it's hard to not jump for joy when I've gotten to a point where I can wear it :p

2  Tigger costume for my little one! in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jezzyloo on: October 05, 2007 06:51:35 PM
As part of a swap on another board, I made a Halloween costume. I originally wanted to make a hooded kitty jacket, but then I saw a Tigger costume hanging in the thrift store. PERFECT, because I came to find out the recipient of the swap LOVES Winnie the Pooh.

I looked over tons of doll patterns and finally figured out how to make hooded pajamas. I scanned a pants pattern and a long-sleeved shirt pattern, redesigned them to go together in Illustrator. After a trial with other fabric, I finally got what I wanted:

Heidi says (in a very Eddie Izzard voice) "ooohhhh I'm a tiger!"

Learning to bounce with Tigger.
(I'm so tickled that the same day I found the costume I went digging through the board books and found this one!)

All I have left are to make some little yellow crocheted booties and mitts, put in some hooks for the front closure, and mail it off!

Thanks for looking!

3  First Earrings Evarrr! with buttons! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by jezzyloo on: September 06, 2007 09:31:34 AM
I took a trip to my grandmas' and one of them unloaded a generous portion of her bead collection on me when she learned I was interested in making jewelry. Last night I picked up some crimps and decided to play around this morning...

Very simple, but I've been craving button jewelry for quite a while!

I now need to learn how to crimp properly and make myself a button necklace...

4  Suggestive Harry Potter Tees in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by jezzyloo on: July 26, 2007 06:56:12 PM
I saw these on Fashionista and thought I should pass them along to those who are talented with stencilling.

5  Blythe Tulip Skirt for Bratz doll in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by jezzyloo on: July 17, 2007 04:28:16 AM
This is my girl Darcy. She was my $10 tip for driving out to the ghetto to pay a bill for my dad. She doesn't know that she isn't a Blythe, nor does she know that I really would prefer one. After searching for a suitable recipient of painstakingly tiny stitchery, I settled on a Bratz doll that didn't look too devious (or "skankeh" according to the Toys-R-Us cashier).
The box says her name is Jade, but I can spot a Colin Firth fan anywhere; thus, Darcy.

Anyway, this is my first time making clothes this tiny, so be gentle, please.

I call it the pinwheel skirt, using scraps from a shirt I'm making for myself. I'm a little frustrated, because it's still not the right size. Her waist is so tiny compared to Blythe.

I was trying to make a boatneck top, but in my laziness in turning the collar and putting in velcro, I'm using it as inspiration to make a military style jacket.

And one more shot just for fun... because shedding modesty is in her dolly dna.

6  Re: Questions About Hairstyles! in Bath and Beauty: Discussion and Questions by jezzyloo on: June 10, 2007 01:06:23 PM
I've been going through major phases with my hair. Since the beginning of 2006, I've been growing it out. I think it makes me look skinnier. I also started dying it really dark, which I love.

But I'm sort of bored with it. It's very thin and lies flat. I don't like to put product in that often, because the longer it gets, the harder it is to work with it.
Can layers and bangs save me?

7  Pink Monkey in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by jezzyloo on: June 03, 2007 10:49:08 AM
My best friend's little sister Kelly graduated last week, and I flew into town for her big graduation party. I wanted to make something for her, and a monkey was perfect. When she was little, her dad convinced her that monkeys were called "Kellies" at the zoo. I found this pattern http://quesera.ojaru.jp/osaru-pattern.html
and went out to buy some brown bernat softee chunky yarn. They had none at Wal-Mart, so I settled for pink and yellow to match her bright personality. I never thought I'd finish it in time, but I sewed on the last leg while she was getting ready for the party. She thought it was bought, in spite of how wonky this little guy is:

Thanks! Yeah, he got me into West Wing, which is one of his family things, and I've yet to see any cute WW-geek shirts. His parents got a kick out of it, and now he wants one. Less girly, though.

Here are the rest of them.
Action shot!

And another one I made using crochet hooks, scissors, and yarn:

This one was a little bit of a mess-up. I used mardi gras beads to spell out Love, but they didn't quite work. I still like how it came out, though. It's like an explosion Smiley

9  Bleach-stencilling is so addictive... in Stenciling: Completed Projects by jezzyloo on: May 26, 2007 10:40:24 PM
I saw this on Craftzine and wanted to try it ever since then.

My boyfriend came home from school today for the summer, and along with a Kryptonium-green cake, I wanted to make him a shirt as a welcome-home present. He has a green shirt that accidentally got bleached out, and he loves it to death, because it looks "artistic," so now it was my turn. I made the symbol in Illustrator.

After that, I started looking for things to put on my shirt and happened to find a box of scrapbooking letters I used for a project. 100 points if you know what Bartlet for America means!

I did two more, but Photobooth is pussing out on me, so more later.

Thank you everyone so much for the nice comments Smiley

I just got back from a 2.5-week trip, and Pumpkin is desperate for constant attention, so I'll definitely be breaking out the sling or making a new one that doesn't collect so much hair :p

"I'm in yr lap. I demand 2 B carry'd!"
