11  Re: Headbands or Hair Bands? in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jezzyloo on: May 16, 2007 06:49:30 PM
i'm totally gonna make some of these for myself! the main change i'm gonna make, though, is i'm gonna use a velvety material for the inside, cause that keeps the headband from slipping back (i had one like that in high school). plus, then, you can reverse it to pretty velvet for a special evening out!

I have the same problem - my hair is stick straight, fine, and really "slippery," for lack of a better word, so headbands eventually slide off the back of my head (this is NOT a good look, trust me).

Here's a tip I learned from a friend in high school who did this to keep his kippah on securely - stitch in some velcro! Make sure to use the rougher "hook" side, not the softer "loop" side. The hooks grab the hair nicely and keep everything in place. Here's one of mine:

It's got a piece of velcro sewn in near each temple. Just make sure to have it around your neck before you brush your hair, then slide it back.

I will be switching to ponytail elastics!

These are awesome ideas! I need me some headbands Smiley

12  Easter/Spring Top from Bedsheet in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: April 08, 2007 01:52:56 AM
It's April, it's Easter, but it's cold. I'm in denial and still bring out the pinks and purples and wear my flip-flops in 35˚ weather.

I've been thinking all week of what to make to wear on Easter for brunch, and I finally (re)found Rickrackruby's Striped Skirt Tutorial, and I finally had something to use my old jersey knit sheets for. Lately I've been wearing a lot of my skirts as tops, because I love the way they drape and hide my overindulged tummy (damn overabundance of candy) so well. My dad rolled his eyes as I layed out the sheet on the living room floor and began to measure and cut at midnight. 2 hours later, and I had this top!

This is some of my favorite material in my stash, and it's been begging to be used for something soft and flowy.

Pumpkin of course had to be in the pictures, because of all his help. He has to lie on the fabric while I'm trying to measure and cut.

Now that I look at it, the print really is most unusual. Butterflies and bubbles? I haven't used these as sheets for 5 years, and not just because they're twin-sized.

I used bra straps on it and just realized that I should probably take that pin out before wearing it in the morning.  Undecided

Anyway, thanks for looking, and Happy Easter!

13  Mimzy! Bunny patterns? in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Discussion and Questions by jezzyloo on: April 01, 2007 02:15:00 PM
So I saw The Last Mimzy this weekend and want my own Mimzy!

I can knit, crochet, and sew, but any type of medium will do. I just want a simple stuffed animal pattern that I can convert to make a bunny with. I'm willing to draft my own pattern, but since I haven't had much luck with that in the past, I'd love to have something to go by. Cheesy

Thanks in advance!

14  Fleece Cat-Ear Headphone-Hat in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by jezzyloo on: February 07, 2007 04:56:46 PM
So I saw this last friday on FitSugar.com and immediately decided I wanted one... but not for $60. It's got speakers inside the hat so you can listen to your iPod through it and keep warm.

So using snowtigress's tutorial for a kitty-ear hat from one rectangle, I created my new favorite winter accessory.

I had a pair of headphones that rest on your ears, but they always gave me a headache. So I took the padding off of them and stuck them into a sort of inner-brim secured by stick-on velcro. I would have sewn it shut, but I might want one out of a different color fleece.

Listening to my music is so much more fun with cat ears.

16  Girly "Boy Beanie" with flaps and a pom-pom in Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller by jezzyloo on: January 17, 2007 12:09:36 AM
I made 2 boy beanies within a week and discovered how lovely they are when done with Lion Brand Jiffy. I gave one to a friend, and he can't stop wearing it. I envied the hat and wanted my own so I splurged on some gorgeous femme colors. I did one more increase after row 6 and then used the Seija instructions to figure out my own earflaps. I also made my first pom-pom, which I love Smiley

Let me know what you think! I'll be field-testing it tomorrow. I'm tempted to sleep in it  Grin

17  Merry Christmas Zip-Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: December 01, 2006 03:34:30 PM
While on my quest to make a hoodie, I ran into a particularly intriguing Christmas turtleneck. I don't usually wear turtlenecks and haven't for years. But this one was begging to be something else. "Put a zipper in me!" it begged.

So months later, I've done it and made my first successful item of clothing that I will wear the hell out of.

I love that I can wear it on my shoulders or off them... Now I need a matching  red scarf and hat Cheesy

I love everything here... I was messing around with my cats and my camera today, and these are some of my favorites:

Shelli is an Egyptian Mau-Ocicat mix, and in spite of her senior moments, she always appears to be deep in thought.

19  Kimono becomes sexy robe and/or overshirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: September 09, 2006 03:03:02 AM
When I was 17, my boyfriend went to visit family in Japan and came back with lots of goodies, including a gorgeous blue cotton kimono. He told me that his mother picked it out and was going to make a sash for me too. I was psyched.

Until we broke up soon after his return. Five years later, it was still hanging patiently in my closet with the tag still on. After all those times I wondered if I'd ever wear it, I decided no and got to reconstructing... There were big gaping holes under the armpits, so I seamed those up, but I refused to do away with my handy little pockets.

I cut it off short and put a heavy hem in there to keep it weighed down and not so breezy round the bum. Then I took an old sheet that I tried to make a robe with a while back (and failed. damn you kwiksew. you must hate me) and fixed up a simple sash. I'll most likely be tying it in the front, but for the sake of having fun, I put the tie in the back.

I also made it something I can wear to class over a tank top and a long skirt or pants.

Thank you for looking, and.... thanks Kazu-chan (ex's mama)!

20  Deep V-neck top pattern? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by jezzyloo on: August 21, 2006 03:50:44 PM

I just bought this shirt from Target, and I'm absolutely in love with it and want to knit up a warmer one with prettier colors. Does anyone know of a pattern I could use?
