21  Gift for a Starbucks fiend in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by jezzyloo on: August 18, 2006 11:24:28 AM
I'm not sure where this goes since I couldn't find a place in the special occasion forum, but this is for my dad's girlfriend's birthday. We have a semi-common bond through knitting. She's also a very big fan of Starbucks, and using an idea I saw at the bookstore, I put this together for her along with a Starbucks gift card:

The yarn is Caron Simply Soft and the needles are US8. I'm trying to find a simple simple pattern that I can print out to include with the gift. I'm about to hit the Knitty archive, but if anyone knows of anything else, I'd super-appreciate it!

22  Super-functional MacBook Sleeve in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by jezzyloo on: August 06, 2006 06:27:37 AM
I've had my MacBook for less than 24 hours and I already had to make something for her. I bought this crazy fabric at Hancock intended for another purse based on the skipping bag tutorial, but I never got around to using it. Then surprise! My dad goes with me to buy a MacBook during our tax holiday. I told him I was going to make a bag, and he worried about durability, so I just used the foam sleeve that it was in when I opened the box along with my fabric.

Finished Product!
I put this together this morning with the supplies I had, but I think I'll need to make a different strap. Right now I'm using one from my dad's old brief case.  Tongue

Detail of fabric; I absolutely love that two Apple decals were included. It was just what I needed to finish it off.

Velcro flap, just because I'm too lazy to put in a zipper HA

This is my favorite part. When I'm sitting somewhere for a while, I can charge up without taking it out of the bag. When I want to protect the drives on the side, I can just slide the macbook into the sleeve upside down. It wasn't originally going to be like that, but after I put the foam lining between the two layers of fabric and turned it out, it wasn't enough material to go around.

Thanks for looking Smiley

23  Baby sling for my baby in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by jezzyloo on: July 19, 2006 01:20:49 AM

Pumpkin is my baby. He's a Ragamuffin cat that loves to follow me around the house and loves to be held. When I was younger, I used to carry him around the house in an extra bookbag. I wanted one of those handy-dandy baby slings just for him, but they're just so expensive.

I have a sewing machine! I have a computer! I have internet!
I found a simple tutorial: http://www.ida.net/users/stace/sling.html

Voila, my kitty sling:

(He likes to be floppy  Cheesy)

24  Beatles Umbrella Kimono Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: July 07, 2006 01:56:04 AM
I had an extra-large beatles tee with the "winter" shot from the cover of Beatles '65
I adored the shirt, but I couldn't wear it anywhere nice.
So, combined with a tube top I got at Walmart years and years ago, I made a kimono top:

Detail of Paul looking up at me :p

George is my favorite Cool

I just made a similar bag using your tutorial! Thank you so much for sharing it, I'm absolutely in love with my new purse  Cheesy

On a whim, I decided to make the buttons go into actual buttonholes.

The detail of the pattern... I have a love hate relationship with her after my students gave me the nickname.

26  First generation T projects... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: July 04, 2006 10:18:00 PM
My dad was kind enough to lend me his Borders gift card yesterday so that I could purchase Generation T and put a dent in my T-shirt collection (and stop buying so many damn new clothes when I have too many as it is).

So here you have my version of the cover girl shirt and the flare skirt, Patriotic style (and Memphian style).

And my little holiday card that I made for my blog readers:

27  Flavored Iced Tea recipe (EDIT 7/2/06) in Recipes and Cooking Tips by jezzyloo on: June 30, 2006 05:30:37 PM
While dining at Davis Kidd's bistro, I got the inspiration to use flavored Bigelow teas for iced tea.
I love cinnamon, so my first venture has been Cinnamon Stick tea, but there are tons of other flavors that I think would be awesome tea flavors.

 (EDIT: Pitcher should be 2-quarts)

Here are some other flavors I noted:
raspberry royale
french vanilla
vanilla hazelnut
vanilla almond
vanilla caramel
cherry vanilla
orange & spice
perfect peach
cranberry apple
pomegranate pizzazz
blueberry harvest (must try that one for my dad; huge blueberry fan, that one Cheesy)

28  Disco-Ball lattice-back top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: June 28, 2006 11:32:29 PM
I got this gorgeous silver slip dress for a semi-ball back in 2000. I wore it again for my senior pictures photoshoot. Here's a before-shot:

It got WAY too short as I continued to grow after high school (craziness), so I decided to make it a sexy top I can wear out again without worrying that I'll catch a draft.
I ripped out the back seam and took it in on each side and added pieces of a satin cord into the seams and laced it up with the remaining satin cord.


Right now, I can't take it off  Cheesy

29  Superman Halter Top in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by jezzyloo on: June 20, 2006 02:11:33 AM
Today I completed my very first T-shirt surgery, and I'm still freaking out that I actually did it. A year ago, I could only dream about making such lovelies out of my scraps. Now I have the sewing machine to do it!

My boyfriend is a Superman fanatic, and next Tuesday, we're going downtown to see the first showing on the big-big screen. When going downtown, I like to dress up, and I loved the idea of surprising him with devotion to his obsession (combined with fun glittery silverness of course).

My friend Bethi had a Superman shirt that was shrunken and yellowing in spots, so I cut up the front panel, added it to a tube top, stuck on a ribbon neck strap, added sequins to the borders of the panel, and used an old too-short disco-ball dress for the top and bottom. End product:

(forgive my boyfriend and his film studenty angled shots)
