1  ALICE IN WONDERLAND in Costumes: Discussion and Questions by latortuganegra on: September 26, 2007 04:52:39 PM
So heyyy. im trying to be Alice in wonderland this year. my bf will be the mad hatter. =D
So i figure hes doing a modern rendition of the hatta based on a graphic novel i found. So likewise i am doing an update version of Alice. i got the pattern for my dress. its reall simple Halelujah since im like a pattern noob. But the distinguishing part about the costume is the APRON. sooo hence i ask how do i go about this it seems simple a square for the front torso, a long rectangle for the bottom half of me a drawstring to tie it up. But the Ruffles? should i make the ruffles by ...s*** whats it called by....PLEATING the fabric enuf to make taht ruffly look around the edges???
like this>>>

2  Andy Warhol and Gwen Stefani's bastard child in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by latortuganegra on: September 01, 2007 10:58:07 PM
Alllllllrighty then so i was watching thread  banger and they stenciled using regular spray paint like that stuff you puton walls. so..... i attempted a test run on a makeshift bag.
I call it  Andy Warhol and Gwen Stefani's bastard child.  Grin Cheesy
its soo not finished and needs a zipper badly lol. i used white onthe yellow that was sad you could see it you stood next to me...or stared at it but with the black i just put on there its a whole lot better. Be kind i stenciled the bananas myself and the letters well that good old elmers stencils pack.
Oh and yeah iknow its messy but its like a total experiment...can i wear it?

3  black skull bag but what kind of handle to add? in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by latortuganegra on: June 17, 2007 07:22:37 AM
I made this lilttle dooda last night well i started last week scraped it and started it again. ITs got two buttons that close the flap and two lil bows on the bottomr right corner but u can hardly notice it in the pics. This is my stab at a small purse thing since usually i carry Humogoferous bags with only a pen and a cellphone in it lol
 My dilema is to add a handle or  long chain as a strap since i think a fabric strap would look bad.
comments welcomed =)

OK i put some of it kinda together without screws though because i wanted to test it out a bit. and heres wat it may look like.

Well as far as the lid shutting on him im drilling that shelf to the lid so it cant close even if i try to shut it . See below he can hide out there.
that sheet is his but in the mean time i put it in there for him.

See he likes the camera. That string is holding a bag of catnip that he is trying to break open like a pinata.

And this is where he likes to sit when he wants some love or food.
Well this is a start not near completion.

5  Kitty Needs a home in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by latortuganegra on: April 16, 2007 11:20:04 PM
OK so I have wanted to get my cat a cat house for a lil while now. But so far im seeing outrageously priced homes that arent even big at all. So my wonderful Boyfriend suggested that now that ive emptied out my chest i should convert it into a cat house for dobey (el gato)
this is wat im talkin about

Im thinking to line the bottom with a wicker like matt since he loves that material. Then to put like a shelf across the left half of the box so he can sit up there above the trunk floor. I will  leave the top open permenantly and hand  strings and toys from the top. And he will enter his lil castle by a door ill cut out of the bottom. What do you guys think?
OHJHH and the ouside may be lined with carpet since he may wanna scratch stuff.

heres hte Model of it lol enjoy.

6  My Cat is DESTROYING the moulding onthe doors. in Pet-Related Crafts: Discussion and Questions by latortuganegra on: April 10, 2007 08:12:01 PM
Ok so my cat for lack of a better word is an asshole lol. Its ok he knows it.
He likes to scratch up the moulding around the doorway, he does this to my door only since he knows where i sleep.
He doesnt seems to destroy anything else. SOOOO
wat to do im renting and i dont blame landlords for wanting to NOT rent to people with pets.
The moulding has mybe 3 scratches on it so far but this is repairable but over some time 3 will become 300 so is there something i can rub onthe door that he will be repelled by.
Or will i have to get some industrial streanght carpet cut a strip or it and with a small tack hammer it around the moulding??
By the way this is the culprit.
Thanks in advance for any help =D  oh this is an old pic hes full grown now.

SO i walk into the kitchen and there it sits 2 spools of wire. =)

So the pearls on that one broke off the wire was super flimsy. So then i used the other wire wich was a B***h to bend i then wrapped it with the flimsy wire lol. And got this and if ure wondering wat happend tot he super flimsy ring it ended up as a tree necklace thing =)

So my sister tells me ummm that wire is bad for ure skin. so stop wasting i need to make a model ..... i wonder how long till i glow?

9  This is my Clutch...i think i went wrong with felt. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by latortuganegra on: February 01, 2007 05:34:55 PM
Ok so i scower the ends of craftster looking for advice and ideas on how to create the things i imagine.
And i also have to come to terms that i have very limitied access to my favorite craft stores. OK so all i had was felt and im sure if i drop this in a puddle its a gonner but for a hand sewn contraption im poud =)
whatcha think?

This is the Front.

This be the INside with a lil pocket see there =)

This is the back if u wondered it closes with buttons. there was a zipper deficiency.

10  Big shirts the tale or a Recon...Images in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by latortuganegra on: November 05, 2006 11:16:10 PM
I love to reconstruct and when i bought a book on how to recon oversized shirts i went mad hatter. Tho im a big believer in "dont follow directions" I just got the inspiration and thought hey i want a patch and went ahead to make this.
This is all made from a mens shirt i liked how it fit a lil bit loose but snug enuf to see a figure. lol i cut a vneck and sowed up the armholes so it fit properly.


Making the patch was a B**** and a half. but this is what i rendered. and lol lets not forget the lil patch i sowed. on..i sowed it on wrong.

Well thats that. What does everyone think?
