11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The Misfits Corset on: February 08, 2007 05:37:50 PM
Recipe For a Misfits Corset:

-Date an extra-large guy, and ask him to borrow an extra-large Misfits t-shirt.
-Have one of your friends clean out her closet, and then have her give you a tacky-o, white, lacy, corset-like thing.
-Have an upcoming show that you want something totally cool to wear to.

Mix t-shirt with corset thing. Pair with skirt and heels. Wear.

What I came up with:

Close ups:

Hope you guys like my corset-thingy. I think it's purty cool, the way "Misfits" goes across the tits. The top is purty revealing, in a good way? Anyways, leave me some totally awesome comments!

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Purse in shape of: The Sacred Heart on: January 06, 2007 10:24:24 PM
   I hope this entry still qualifies seeing that it is still the 6th here.
This is my entry for the "Purse in the shape of a" challenge. I was inspired by a tattoo my father has on his chest, and I decided to re-create it. Drafting the pattern took alot of thought, but sewing it was the greatest challenge.
Here it is:
The Sacred Heart Purse. Completely lined, with (you guessed it) flame handles, and working stuffed thorn.
My definition of an action shot:

The bag was partly fun/horror to make, so I hope you guys like it!
13  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Till Death on: December 27, 2006 08:29:00 AM
So last night I was looking at the ACT board, right? And I was pretty board myself, right? So, I went to my room, and made my first ACT.

But, alas, I'm now addicted to another craft, so I guess you'll be seeing me on this board more often.

So guys, comments/criticism welcome!
P.S. Acrylics
14  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / (Secret Santa) Disabled homosexual mean boy on: December 18, 2006 05:34:41 PM
We did the secret Santa thing in my fashion class,I was sure I was going to get girl and I was going to be able to craft her all kinds of things.. BUT- I got the one boy, who is disabled, not openly homosexual but is never openly heterosexual, and he is always talking smack about everyone under his breath i.e. "look at those shoes" "she's a horrible sewer" "she doesn't know crap about fashion" And (which is really funny) he called our teacher a bitch outload, in her face. (She didn't approve of his hem.)
I really don't know anything about him personally, but he goes to therapy, he also makes dresses all the time, never men's clothing.

I want to just buy him some nice looking fabrics, but now I'm thinking he just needs some love. Any ideas?

And while were at it. I need something for my super stressed out mom. I've gone the therapy route before and gotten her bath salts, soap, etc.. But she never uses them. No mix Cd's, she must have a million. She likes to cook, so I was thinking a interesting kind of food in a box. And she likes to drink, in a good way.

Gosh, sorry I wrote so much.
15  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Seven Deadly Sins Swap on: December 10, 2006 01:21:33 PM
I have a cool idea for a swap! Has anyone ever heard of the Seven Deadly Sins? I'm learning about them in my literature class. Anyways the sins are:
-luxuria (extravagance)
-later (lust)
-gula (gluttony)
-avaritia (avarice/greed)
-acedia (sloth)
-invidia (envy)
-superbia (pride/hubris)
 I thought you could make one item for each sin, for example: luxria-jewelry, acedia-maybe a pillow or lazy stuff. This would be super cool, and it would be fun to see what people come up with. Here is a link with more info:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins

I have yet to do a swap, and I waiting to do my first one still. My month isn't up yet. Sad
16  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Those poofy jackets. on: November 30, 2006 05:53:28 PM
So, I have one of those men sized poofy jackets. You know, the ones with the ridiculously large pillow like poofs on it, quilt style? So maybe you don't know, but those poofs are filled with like millions of little feathers. My point is, I want to re-con the jacket, but I don't know how to get around those damn poofs! Can I cut them, or sew into them? Any help please?
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The stupid-ex-boyfriend's-shirt revamp on: November 28, 2006 06:15:25 PM
Back Story:

   So I was dating this guy for like, 6 months right? Then out-of-the-blue (and I mean out-of-the-blue) the jerk decided to dump me...at my friend's party 30-min in!! Alcohol wasn't even running through our systems! Since I was crying hysterically, the block-head took me home. AND to add insult to injury, he went back to my friend's party!!! He left a crap-load of his stuff in my house, and recently he called, angry, telling me to give him the stuff back! Ahhhhh!! So guess what I did???

This was an extra-large western shirt, somewhat expensive, oops?
And I sewed it to fit, poofed up the sleeves, and added extra-girly ribbon and bows!

A close up of the poofed sleeve and bow!

The proof is in the pudding!! (The size says extra-large)
Hope you liked.
P.S. Take that, poop head!
18  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Spider Web Tote Bag on: November 27, 2006 09:42:38 PM
I recently made this for school, to carry my books, etc... I drafted a simple tote bag pattern, found large enough fabric scraps (the polka-dot is an old skirt) and got to sewing. I was trying to make professional looking straps, so I stuffed them (using stuffing from little sister's toys) and applied them with D-rings. They're not that great, but I'm pleased.

I machine-stitched spider webs (I adore spider webs) on the sides.

I added a last minute apron-style pocket.

I still plan on adding some old-English text on the front that says something super cool.
This is my first completed project post, so leave plenty of comments.
