1  Placemats in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by liz_steel on: September 23, 2016 08:59:58 AM
I made some placemats:

They have a layer of wadding in the middle, and I used this method for the backing:


I didn't have enough of one fabric for the backing, so half are done with skulls and half with dragons, but I'm still really pleased with them!

2  Han Solo Cosplay in Costumes: Completed Projects by liz_steel on: February 18, 2015 03:56:47 AM
I recently went to a convention, and a group of us decided that it was about time we did a Star Wars cosplay. So I decided that I would be Han Solo and my husband should be Leia.

You can see the stripes better in this one:

My husband is the one on the right!

Group Shot:

I made the waistcoat, trousers and holster from scratch, the shirt was one of my husbands. What you can't see is that I used some Star Wars fabric to line the waistcoat with too!

3  O-Ren Ishii in Costumes: Completed Projects by liz_steel on: October 09, 2014 09:21:51 AM
A group of my friends decided to do a Kill Bill costume theme for a convention recently. Unfortunately I didn't get many photos, but here are a few from some friends:

And a group shot:

This was a completely new experience for me - I really had no idea about kimonos or how to wear them, but I think it turned out pretty well in the end!

Oh, and the lovely blonde in the PVC catsuit is my darling husband  Wink

Thanks for all your lovely comments!

The front is closed using swing hooks, and the back has lacing loops. Here is a photo of the corset in progress which shows these:

I made this outfit for a Vampire Ball I went to. The skirt and jacket are from the Simplicity 2172 pattern, and the corset is from the Laughing Moon Dore pattern.

And with a friend:

7  Steampunk Jacket and Skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by liz_steel on: July 17, 2012 03:08:58 AM
I finally got round to finishing my Steampunk Jacket and Skirt, using Simplicity pattern 2172 and fabric from Abakhan.

I still need to make a corset to go with it, and I'm not sure if I'll need an underskirt with it.

I intend to wear it to a Vampire Ball later this year.

8  Woolyphant and TigerPhil in Knitting: Completed Projects by liz_steel on: September 06, 2011 02:49:55 AM
I knitted the elephant for my niece and the tiger for my brother. They are both from the Knitted Wild Animals book by Sarah Keen. I'm really please with how they came out, and I'm definitely going to be knitting some more from this book.

9  Nautical but nice - my first quilt! in Quilting: Completed Projects by liz_steel on: September 06, 2011 02:17:31 AM
I won a fabric pack from The Sewing Directory (http://www.thesewingdirectory.co.uk/) and decided to have a go at quilting. I had to buy some extra fabric for the borders and the back.

10  Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by liz_steel on: March 11, 2010 06:02:30 AM
I made my brother a tiger shirt, since his nickname is "Tiger"!

It's made from some velour fabric I got from ebay, which was horrible to work with, but it came out OK in the end.

I also got some cool tiger buttons from ebay as well:
