I put a couple neon green fusion extensions (at 3 dollars a PIECE, oh my god) in at work today. Needless to say, we were bored.

Edits: The extensions are human hair, and are more or less hot glue gunned to my own hair. They dont come out without a fight.

If you guys are interested in learning how to DIY fusions (on someone else, obviously not yourself) I can type up a text tute.

I always forget to post in this thread.

Most recently, I have Atomic Pink in my hair. Lord, the joys of being a hairdresser -- my hair is never work inappropriate. Also, my haircut is asymmetrical. I think I had just awoken from a nap when I took these photos, oops.

Heres a good shot of the haircut's asymmetry.:

23  My first book ever! A coptic stitch sketchbook. Buttons and maps. in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: August 15, 2007 10:24:57 PM
Its plain. I know. I dont know what I want to do with it yet.

But here it is! I was at Barnes and Noble yesterday looking for a purse-sized doodle/sketchbook. Moleskine sounded nice. Of course they didnt have what I wanted. So I come home, get on Craftster, and discover that theres a book making section. I see a coptic-stitched journal and fall in love. Promptly look up about five tutorials, make a mental checklist of what I already own...

...And today I get to work. I tore out pages from two different sketchbooks I was currently not using anymore, and cut them to size. I used the back cover of the sketchbooks for the front and back covers of the book, and a little scrap fabric I had left over. I glued it all on, and dug through my super-old box of scrapbooking to find this cute map paper that I used for the inside cover.

However, in the process of punching holes in my covers, I manage to hammer holes into my tile floor of my bedroom with a hammer and an awl. Nothing a rug wont cover, I guess...but silly mistake anyhow.

I think I'll put an elastic band on the book to keep it tidy in my purse, and I'm also thinking about a pocket for the inside cover. However I have a few leftover signatures so I think I'll just move onto book #2. I think I found a new addiction.

24  A Weekender-inspired bag fit for a hairdresser. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: August 07, 2007 12:38:36 AM
I do hair. Naturally when I found the AH fabric with bobby pins, I snatched it up. The whole rest of the bolt, in fact. At least it was on sale.

Anyway, I needed a really big bag. I carry a lot of stuff with me, including ridiculously large brushes, and a big bulky blowdryer. Not a lot of bags work for me, and all the bags they sell at the beauty supply are ridiculous amounts of money and UGLY. Besides, whats the fun in buying something?

So I saw the influx of Weekender bags and adored the shape. They remind me of bowling bags. And they were huge. Naturally, I wanted one. And since I could customize it to my preferences, it was perfect. Not to mention that this was created with stuff I just had laying around. Granted, I could open a small fabric store, but still....

 The handles are my only qualm. They're webbing I had laying around to match...but its nylon, and too shiny for my taste. I might go try and find some in cotton. I hate how slippery they are. The bobby pin fabric is actually a giant pocket. They are on both sides.

These photos are terrible. Really terrible. Its 3 AM, but I still cant justify.

Here it is, lookin' like a lump. Its only got a few brushes in the front pocket it so it looks strange and lopsided...not to mention unable to stand on its own. I've only got my makeup kit in there.

Here is the lining and a very sloppy pocket. But the pocket houses my shears, and thats all I needed it for.

Here is a poor action shot, for scale. I am a deer in headlights.

25  Waste not, want not...a hurting Descendants t shirt. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cheera on: July 24, 2007 09:01:36 PM
I began with this, a t shirt that my boyfriend had forever. It is beyond soft. It is full of holes, from welding, studded belts, and the general beating that all my boy's shirts seem to take. Also, bloodstains. Whee.

The wound that made this shirt unwearable for him:

So I took my favorite t shirt ever, and traced the pattern onto this lovely soft snuggly t shirt. I used this soft sweater-knit ribby stuff I bought for like a dollar a yard at Jo Anns awhile ago.

Its threadbare. And awesome. I kind of love it.

26  Lightning bolts, music notes, rainbows, oh my! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: July 24, 2007 12:24:20 AM
We start with this wonderful ribby fabric:

And a wonderfully tried and true design...and get this!

Woo! Its baggier because I was experimenting making things in larger sizes.

27  ROAR! Short sleeved dino hoodie, plus random yoke. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: July 23, 2007 12:49:23 AM
I dont know, I just felt like yokes.

I will get you!

Fabrics from sewzannes, and I serged the zipper again. It seems to be working well. I didnt put pockets on it because its sort of cropped and pockets are seemingly useless and awkward on cropped hoodies, at least for me.

28  Re: hoodie dress help? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by cheera on: July 13, 2007 09:04:43 PM
Alright, since its got raglan (baseball style) sleeves, the pain and suffering of drafting your own pattern has been cut in half.

This is a crude, crude drawing of what I think you should cut out. You need to measure yourself for the length and then add three or four inches for boob/curve allowance so you dont end up with a really long hoodie, and not a hoodie dress. You can find a more comprehensive tutorial on the hood part here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=177602.0

But anyway

This is the general shape you should be cutting out. You might want it less curvy if you want it to fit boxier (the dress looks like it has a slight curve, but I can barely draw a straight line...its been a long day.)

On the bottom hem and the cuffs you'll find that they are pieces of fabric sewn together to create a circle and then folded to create a seamless cuff. Your mom can definately shed more light on this than I am at this point.

Remember to use a zig zag stitch, or a stretch stitch, yadda yadda. Hope this helps a little.

29  Nautical top at 1000 knots! Dressy and cuuuuuute. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cheera on: July 11, 2007 02:27:40 PM
I really like this one. I'm gonna definately need an undershirt for it, however.

I think this took an hour to design, cut, sew and everything. I think its a personal record. Wheeeeeoooo.

I also discovered all these fancy stitches on my boyfriends ol' beasty Kenmore sewing machine, so I used them. First one is the arm's hem and the next is the bottom hem.

30  I did some henna on my sister and I! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by cheera on: July 08, 2007 10:37:01 PM
I bought some henna from www.henname.net on Monday morning and got it by Friday (even with the holiday!) and this proceeded to happen! Both of the pieces are about 6 hours old, so they'll get a little darker.

This is on my little sister's forearm/wrist area. She is a Pisces. She didnt let me do the original design I drew out, which sucks because it went together so much better.

Paste on, covered in the lemon sugar goo. Oh, she scratched that part off, it kept crumbling and she got mad at it.

Also I used orange marker to outline the designs.

And oh hello, here is my foot:

You can see where I messed up.
