1  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Artistic anatomy on: May 15, 2011 04:23:33 AM

I'm studying nursing and finding creative ways to study anatomy as it's doing my head in trying to remember everything. These are a couple of papercuts, with ink and watercolour on Hahnemhle paper.
This one is an ovum

Detail- the texture was made with a pin

and the muscles of the eye

Labelled (The lateral rectus is actually wrong and I will be fixing that up)

Love to hear what you think Smiley
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Sound activated light up festival bag on: May 03, 2011 01:38:02 AM

Today is my stepson's birthday, he's 12 which I'm finding a hard age to buy for without a huge expense. I bought this sound activated panel from Focal price (http://www.focalprice.com/search.html?keyword=el%20panel) a few months ago and yesterday set out to turn it into a bag.

The outer is a grey corduroy with a check quilters cotton inner with heavy weight interfacing. I made the bag flap up as I went along but basically I cut two outers and an inner pocket for the panel. Then I cut out the window along the bevel corners, folded them back and sewed around them and then attached the pocket for the panel enclosed it completely apart from a small section for the cord

This little pocket keeps the power supply for the panel nice and safe.

I made a little video to show how it works, the sound isn't the best but hopefully you get the idea
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Bias cut linen dress on: November 01, 2010 08:19:00 PM
I whipped this up without a pattern so it's a little ill fitting (I really need to get a dressmakers model). Still it will do for now and I love the fabrics.
If there is any interest I'll write up a tutorial

7  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Kids clothing from sheets/ curtains and recycled material on: September 06, 2010 07:34:51 AM

I can't walk past an op shop without having a look and I always come home with old curtains or table clothes etc that are just needing some new life put back into them.

These are a few of the clothes I've made my children- all of the material was bought secondhand

these were once curtains

Dodgy attempt at wings

10  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pillowcase wrap pants with bias binding on: September 06, 2010 06:26:04 AM

Pillowcase pants by Triggerish, on Flickr

Made using the great tute from Pretty Pistol. The only change was top stitching the crotch and using bias binding along the legs and across the top with extra for the ties.

I picked up the pillowcase a while ago and thought about making a dress but these pants are so cute and easy. For younger children running some elastic along the top would also work. The binding was also from a op shop/thrift store so all up these cost under $1 Grin
