Learning Embroidery

I have been learning how to use my new embroidery machine and making custom designs. So far I’ve only been embroidering on tea towels (kitchen towels) and giving them as gifts. There has been a lot of trial and error!

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

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
