Experimenting

Jul 28, 2016 at 3:02 pm (costume, fashion, hats) (, , , , , , , , )

I’ve been experimenting with different ways to make the PokemonGo hats. Iron on transfers are okay; spray on fabric paint however was not. After letting the paint dry then washing per instructions, the paint faded. I really liked the color too!😦 Next up I will experiment with embroidering the hats instead.

PokemonGo hats

Jul 18, 2016 at 12:02 am (fashion, hats) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Now that I am taking a break from classes, I wanted to make my PokémonGo avatar’s hat to wear around as I walked around looking for Pokémon. Then I thought, why not make a bunch of them and see if people would be interested in buying them.

Currently I have the one avatar’s design in yellow and red. I will be on offering it in blue as well (since everyone I came across asked for it) along with other custom colors. I am also planning on making other various Pokémon hat designs. I will post updates and work on getting these posted on my etsy store.

Pikachu earrings and necklace set

Apr 15, 2015 at 2:58 am (3D printing, accessories, jewelry) (, , , , , , )

I downloaded this file from thingiverse and edited it in SketchUp by moving the tail closer to the body. I printed them at 0.4 scale with gold PLA and made them into earrings and a necklace.

reindeer antlers

I used my 3D printer to print out some reindeer antlers to wear on Christmas. I printed them in white PLA filament then painted them a more ivory color. I used an elastic cord and tied a clasp on each end for easier use. Download the file here.

dinosaur earrings

Dec 16, 2014 at 1:19 am (3D printing, jewelry) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I downloaded this file from thingiverse and printed it at a quarter scale to make small enough dinosaurs. I broke off the loops that printed on the dinosaurs backs, filed down the rough parts, drilled a hole in the center and added small eye screws. My sister is going to love these!

I also made a cute dinosaur Christmas card on shutterfly to match (original photo found on Google) :]

Batman cellphone holder

Dec 4, 2014 at 10:53 pm (3D printing) (, , , , , , , , )

For my Solid Modeling class, our final project was to make a functional cellphone holder. Of course i had to make a Batman one. Hopefully I will get to reprint it in black. Or I could just paint this one.
It can even fold up and fit into your pocket!

you can download the file here

learning to crochet

Aug 30, 2014 at 3:51 pm (crochet) (, , , , , , , , )

during the summer break between classes, I decided to teach myself how to crochet. I figure if I start now I can crochet everyone something for Christmas.

I started out practicing the different types of stitches and made some bows.

Octopus! This is the first stuffie I made

prescription cookie jar

Jun 25, 2014 at 10:38 am (other crafts) (, , , , , , , , , , , , )

My sister is leaving for graduate school in 2 weeks to study to become a Pharmacist. As her going away present, I made her a cookie jar that looks like a prescription bottle. It is filled with sugar cookies that look like pills :]

I got the idea from Sugar Dot Cookies who posted a small tutorial.

I found a label picture in google search and edited it to look more like the ones at the pharmacy where she works. I couldn’t find orange cellophane so I used red and yellow (putting the yellow on the outside) to make it look orange. Then I just put a square of fabric over the sealing cap and screwed the lid over it.

Batman tote bag

Jun 24, 2014 at 1:37 pm (accessories, fashion) (, , , , , , , , , )

I had to take a gym class and a needed a tote bag to carry a change of clothes, water bottle, and my essentials (phone, wallet, keys). Instead of buying one, I took an old Batman hoodie I had and made it into a tote bag.

I found this awesome homespun yellow plaid fabric at Joann Fabrics for the inside lining that matched perfectly. I took apart the hoodie with a seam ripper and drew my pattern right onto it. Since sweatshirt fabric stretches, I attached a stiff interfacing to it. I used left over pieces of the hoodie to make pockets on the lining and added a welt pocket.
