1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / we all live in a yellow submarine on: October 25, 2009 07:40:10 PM
for my physics class we had to make kaleidoscopes. and moi, being as crafty as i am, decided to go all out and make my kaleidoscope the yellow submarine. cause kaleidoscopes are kinda trippy and so is the yellow submarine.

we got extra credit if we could figure out how to make the beads move separately than the rest of the kaleidoscope, so the nose of the submarine twists.
my friend maggie helped me make it. we found this picture online and used it as a reference.

this is the body of the submarine without and details

and here are some cellphone shots of it in the bathroom at school before i turned it in.

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / underbust corset on: October 25, 2009 07:31:19 PM
so i wanted to be a pirate for halloween and what does every lady pirate need? a leather corset!! but then, as i was making it, i realized that it didnt really want to be for a pirate. this corset screamed hippie.

for this corset i started with a leather/suede jacket i had.
it looked very much like this one but was dark brown:

so i cut it up, and used simplicity 5006 altering it so the corset would be an underbust. its purposefully sloppy, cause when i started out, i figured what pirate goes through the trouble of making their clothes perfect? they're too busy pillaging to be OCD about sewing.

and voila!

its got 3 mother of pearl snaps on the back to close it.

the last two are it with my costume. its a peasant skirt and a green top. i plan on wearing the flower headband i made a couple months ago too. this is my post for the headband:

3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my homecoming dress!! on: September 20, 2009 07:26:38 PM
So what do you do when you're home alone and are sick?


I actually started this a couple of weeks ago but that was just to sew the strips of fabric together

I hate how i don't own a serger, all my seams are crappy and already fraying. I double stitched most seams for extra reinforcement as my dress frays while I dance in it
I designed the dress myself, and used a sleep shirt pattern that I altered as I went along. The dress was originally supposed to have sleeves, but I like it how it is now.
The dress is a light rose colored satin and the black parts are satin also. It has a split at the bottom and there's a zipper down the front so it can be risque if i want  Wink  I really like how this dress turned out and as a senior this year I wanted to wear something unique for my last homecoming

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Headband on: August 24, 2009 08:54:11 PM
So i'm not really sure if this is considered jewelry or trinkets but if i was feeling really rebellious i guess i could wear the headband as a necklace? if this isn't the correct category then feel free to move it =]

anyways, i found this image online and absolutely fell in love with the flower headband the girl is wearing. i'd say its kinda hippie meets super girly cause who else would wear a giant flower on their head? lol

i have a huge old pink sheet i've slowly been cutting up for various projects and once i saw this i realized the sheet was about the same color. i estimated on the size of the petals and made a paper stencil. the beads in the center are from an old broken necklace and the band is that suede string you can buy at craft stores.

my cat Charlie decided the suede band was a perfect toy and just had the get in the these pictures

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / A Jacket! on: August 13, 2008 02:42:23 PM
i made this jacket last year in my sewing class. its red linen with this thick satin-y black lining. i love it but unfortunately it turned out really formal compared to how i imagined it and as i have no formal events to attend, it sits in my closet. the pattern was vogue something. i can't find it on the website anymore though so i dont know the number.

sorry the qualtiy of these is bad. its my phone's camera.

i used the school's embroidery machine to add flowers to the cuffs.

the buttons are my favorite part cause i think they're so pretty.
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / iron-on removal? on: April 20, 2008 10:46:01 AM
so, i dunno if this is where this question goes but whatever.
i just got this amazingly awesome eco-friendly green bag that i got LOVE! but it has a giant iron-on on one side of the company's name. i don't like it. how can i get it to come off? is there some special removal technique?

please and thank you!!
7  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / my first project on: April 13, 2008 05:46:09 PM
so yesterday i failed my ham radio test and went to lurk around craftster to feel better. i saw wibit's dog https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=239403.0 and felt like maybe i should finally make and post something. then i saw that it was crocheted. Angry i've never been able to master crocheting so i just sat down and tried to knit a dog using her tutorial. the final product didn't turn out how i envisioned but it looks pretty good. it reminds me of my old dog when she was a puppy.

i hope these links work, i'm new to posting images

the pics actually aren't as blurry as they seem, i tried to make the dog furry like in the tutorial
8  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / has anyone used butterick 5088? on: March 30, 2008 03:58:03 PM
i wanna make view A from butterick 5088. i was just wondering if anyone's ever used it and how well it all turned out? also, would alterations be easy on this pattern too? i'm still kinda new to sewing so sometimes even the simplest most obvious things are confusing

9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / help re-creating tank? on: February 01, 2008 06:46:27 PM
i saw this tank on Hannah Montana once and loved it at first sight. I finally found that Urban Outfitters sold it but by then it was sold out. So i decided its crocheted, i have a hook and yarn, and i really really want this top. does anyone know what type of crochet stitch is used to get the same detail on the body of the tank?
please and thank you!


i'm not really sure but i think the stitch is a very loose V-stitch using very thin yarn. does any know if thats correct?
