2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Lace for a masquerade prom on: May 03, 2011 08:22:34 PM
My darling younger sister request a black lace dress for her senior prom a week before prom.  With limited time, I didn't put as much effort into the little details as I would have like to.  The dress turned out good and she was happy to wear it!

Side view: She is absolutely stunning here! She went all out for prom; professional make-up, hair extensions, nails, the works!

Front view

The MASK: being crafty herself, my lito sister made her mask using left over lace.

Thanks for looking!
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / cheapest t-shirt wholesaler? on: May 11, 2008 08:09:29 PM
Hey guys! I'm hoping some of you can help me out...I've gotten commissioned to do a huge stencile project for a production company...t-shirts with their name on it.  I've research to see where I can get 150+ t-shirts for cheap--$1.37 each on ebay. Do you know of any other site(s) that I could get bulk t-shirts cheaper? 

Thanks so much for your help!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / my friendship bag on: April 22, 2008 08:00:41 PM
my internship ended and I wanted to make a gift for one of the ladies that I was working with who has been a great mentor.  I shared a lot about my culture with her so I thought it would be nice to give her a parting gift that reflects it.  I made this bag using an embroidery cloth I purchased from a Hmong lady.  I hope she'll like it.

Front: zipper closure b/c I hate it when my stuff falls out!

side view: pleats!

Inside: just one pocket

Back view: one big pocket for easy access

Action shot!

Comments/criticism are welcome.

Thank you for looking!
5  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / He LOVES trees! on: April 10, 2008 01:05:26 PM
So I've decided that since my lilo guy is 2, I needed something more stylish to tote his essentials around.  Since he loves trees...

I made him...me! a tree tote

Side view...this turned out much smaller than I'd anticipated but it is a GOOD size bag..not too big and not too small.

I used part of a $3 sheet from the thrift store for the lining as well as a $.10 zipper. 

Action shot! lol...he stuffed his fav books and cars in it before I was even finished!

I'm having a bit of a problem getting the tree to stay on.  I used spray adhesive but the ends of the tree keeps peeling. Is there any other alternatives?

Comments/criticism welcome! Thanks for looking!

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / sheer floral empire on: February 07, 2008 09:18:57 PM
I made this top a while ago but now that I'm cleaning out my closet and decided to donate it (since it doesn't fit me postnatal)...I thought I should post it before it's gone.

Front: basic empire front with ties

Back: button closure on back

Detail: buttons and details on strap.

P.S.The top is opened on the sides thus there's no seams

Comments/Criticisms are welcome. Thanks for looking  Cheesy
7  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / HELP! FREEZER PAPER?? on: December 28, 2007 08:03:29 PM
Does anyone know where I can find FREEZER paper in Michigan?? So far I've looked at Meijer, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Wal-Mart, and Family Fare. 

I desperately need it to finish a stencil I'm doing for my nephew!

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Victorian England/Emily Dickinson Wristlet on: September 18, 2007 01:12:11 PM
I made this wristlet for a tin theme swap just recently.  We were suppose to fill the tin with items that relate to the theme of the tin but I couldn't find any ideas for what to fill it with therefore I made this wristlet.

The zipper puller/wristlet-handle was originally a decorative component of a pair of pants and the ivory and blue lace came from the thrift store. The graphic of Emily Dickerson and of the victoria england Queen were printed onto the fabric by using by a tuition I got off of www.instructables.com. I can't remember the specific url but if you really want it I'll try to find it.  Anyways, I also added beads in different shades of blue to the back of the bag. 
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / the sweetest little wallet...you must see! on: September 06, 2007 09:35:10 PM
Ah...got bored tonight so I decided to make a wallet fashioned after a similar and a tinier hello kitty store-brought one that on longer function. 

I didn't want to make the whole thing just out of duct tape and I sure wasn't going to pull my machine out of the closet tonight lol...forgive me for being too lazy  Roll Eyes so I combined the two items...no hehhehehe! not ducktape and the sewing machine! ducktape and scrap fabric that I received from a swap lol...they prove to be handy.

Alright, here is the result of my advantageous boredomness tonight.

Front: open flap with clear vinyl window.  The inside [not pictured] is lined with ducktape in order to add some reinforcer to the fabric.

Front: closed flap with more stuff in there e.g. monies  Grin

Back: polka dots made my day!

Thanks so much for looking.  I love comments/constructive criticisms and would really appreciate your opinions.

More pictures will be added to my blog at www.xanga.com/madebypa soon.

I made this tote for a swap partner and she received so I can post it now.... Cheesy

What do you think? Is cording a good thing to use for handle?
