1  Ninja Pants!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Spazzy on: November 22, 2007 04:19:48 PM
I realize I should've taken sweet ninja pose pics for this post, but everyone here is too full of turkey to withstand my dorkiness any longer...  anyway, here's my latest Ninja Pants.  I love them.  I've always thought the wider your pantlegs the better.  Plus they were still the most comfortable pants ever even after I stuffed myself full of turkey 3 times today!

hey look, blue too!

2  Me in doll form? in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Spazzy on: October 12, 2007 08:20:12 PM
It's been forever since I've posted anything so here I go  Cool

When I started this I was intending to make a doll that looked like my son, for my son.  After what felt like 769875985 hours of tying yarn on for hair (I figured out a much much easier way when I was almost finished) I couldn't bring myself to buzz it off like my son's hair.  It's like a giant yarn mullet and I was instantly in love with it  Tongue   I tied it up in a ponytail because of it's mullet-ness, and made it a hoodie and ninja pants like the ones I made for myself that I can't stop wearing.   My son calls it the Mama Doll, and his Davey Doll is almost finished Smiley  I'd love to hear what you think, I'm entertaining the idea of making dolls for a few friends and family in their likenesses for Christmas... weird or no?

3  first swimsuit attempt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Spazzy on: June 17, 2007 07:12:07 PM
OK so I've been iffy about posting this because even though I shouldn't be, I'm shy about being all hey-look-at-me-in-a-swimsuit. I finally took it out to lovely Lake Michigan to hope and pray that it stays on and together.  I didn't use a pattern, just sort of traced a swimsuit I had that sort of fit, to make it cover more of my butt and make up for my lack of a chest.  Tongue  It stayed together just fine, but it's not quite appropriate for chasing a toddler down the beach and through the ice water lol

I'm thinking of trying again using a fabric made for swimsuits, since this was just random stretchy stuff lined with jersey knit.  It always feels like it's falling off  Undecided  Any pointers from anyone that's made swimsuits?

That's my wee one- his first time to the big lake.  Grin  Just about the only second we could get him to stand still... ever.

edit: to say it ties in the back and at the neck, the ties are flipped over my shoulder, the top really is even Smiley

4  wide leg pants/tank top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Spazzy on: June 07, 2007 06:47:47 PM
I just tried to post this and it messed up sooo much shorter version:

I made this tie shoulder tank and wide leg pants lately, figured I'd post them since I'm been slacking on posting recently.  The whole outfit is super comfy, I love it! 

Sorry the pic is huge, but since it is, I made the pendant myself also and the bracelets from the same fabric as the shirt.

I'd like to hear what you think!

so you're saying that someone there hadn't bathed?

It was me.  My apologies.


Here's a pic of the bicycle spoke bracelet, I left it superhuge so you could see the detail.  The guy made them right there and so fast!  It looked so freakin easy, I can't believe I hadn't thought of it before!

6  Backpack for my wee one! (pic obese-sorry!) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Spazzy on: April 07, 2007 06:19:59 PM
I've been thinking awhile on how to make a tiny backpack for my son.  I finally got around to it this evening.  I got a new sewing machine for my birthday and I got to use bunches of the fancy stitches it does too!  Instead of blabbering like normal... here's pics instead!
I'd apologize for so many huge pics... but who doesn't like pictures?!

my wee one takin it for a test run:

a close-up:

decorative stitching (why?  because I can!  Tongue):

my wee one again... because he's cute and no zipper will stop him!:

All of the colors were picked out by him except for the black, it was an attempt at a pintucked shirt.  The pintucks were used for the sides of the bag, and since they are screwed up, it makes the bag expandable.  What a nifty mess-up! 

Good, bad, or otherwise, I'd love to hear what you think!!

7  st. patty's pants! and a simple shirt! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Spazzy on: March 17, 2007 11:42:47 AM
So I made a few pairs of pants, and they happen to be green, so yay St. Patty's pants! 

The first pair is cotton(I got many many yards of it for $1!!), the second is jersey knit.  I made a purple and a brown pair like the second pair, but haven't gotten pictures.  For some reason the green pair shrunk lengthwise when I dried them, so I gave them to a short friend of mine  Tongue I might've posted them before, but I can't seem to fid them anywhere on craftster, so maybe I'm going crazy...

..to add to my craziness, I seem to not like any pants to not completely cover my feet.. I'm not sure why.  They aren't bad feet.  Palazzos just make me happy and swishy.  Grin

(giant crappy pic.. sorry... they fold over and tie at the waist, very simple)

The shirt in the first pic is really cute and so so easy!  I just stitched on 1/4" elastic around the waist and arms of a men's size S tshirt.  (I had it around the neck too, but I felt like I was wearing a collar and it just had to go).  I guess that counts as a recon, but oh well, it's too easy to make to post it twice.

The necklace is from a tute pattiwack did also that I quickly became addicted to... but I don't have it bookmarked anymore.. oops!

8  Re: Any ideas for dress to be made based on these pink and beige shoes? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Spazzy on: February 21, 2007 04:53:01 PM
here ya go skarinja! 

I was too lazy to put it on but you get the idea.  I reconned this one, it used to be floor length and have some hideous black fuzz along the top.  I also broke the zipper putting it on (when I thought my recon was done, but I needed it the next morning for a wedding) so I made it a corset back.  So far I've worn it for 3 different events and only changed the ribbon in the back and my shoes... its very versatile! 
This one is a couple layers of satiny stuff, with boning, and a layer of tulle underneath.  I'd love to see what you come up with... I'll stop blabberin now  Cheesy

9  Re: Glass Valentine's Pendants in Valentine's Day by Spazzy on: February 15, 2007 08:58:42 PM
I came across this the other day and couldn't wait to try it.  I told one of my crafty friends about it and this is what we came up with:

(Sorry about the 2 dirty ones from the lovely pages of Cosmo... forgot about those when I went to post it!)

We used large glass stones from the dollar store (and small ones but I didn't get a pic yet), pieces of magazines, mod podge to attach the magazine scraps, hot glue to attach the wire, and sticky back felt to cover up our hot glue messes on the backs.  Some are for necklaces, some will be keychains.  Very easy, inexpensive project!  Thanks for the great idea!!  Grin

Sorry the pic isn't better... we are crafters not photographers!  Tongue

10  Re: Dragons Rule! in Amigurumi: Completed Projects by Spazzy on: February 09, 2007 07:48:05 AM
OK here's mine!  This is my first attempt at amigurumi and I learned a lot.  What a nicely written pattern!  So much easier to follow than some others I've tried!  I went on to make 5 or 6 more critters of all different kinds using techniques I learned making this one!  (I'll post them soon!)   I made this while on vacation at my best friends place and she wouldn't let him leave!! So all I've got is these 2 not great pics.  I've got a new one in the works too, I'll post it if anyone wants to see!

I couldn't make his eyes look like your dragons, but I thought they looked kinda neat with the tails still hanging out  Grin  Not bad for a first attempt!
