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.

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.

animal scarves

Dec 27, 2013 at 6:07 pm (accessories, fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I made scarves this year as gifts to my friends and family (kept a fox for myself :D). I got the ideas and fox pattern from prudentbaby.com.

I hand-sewed my ears so they stick up a little bit. I also edited the pattern to make the wolf nose wider and guidelines for the bear.

I used soft flannel fabric and ultra cuddle fabric for underneath (so soft!). The scarves are a yard and a half long and I used 1/4″ seam allowance on everything except for the long body I used 1/2″.

felt hat

Aug 13, 2012 at 10:46 pm (fashion, hats, head pieces, school) (, , , , , , )

Today was the last millinery class :[ but at least I finished all my hats and some! I blocked a felt hood. When I started out I wanted a top hat but the opening was too big and wouldn’t shrink in so I ended up with this.

I definitely want to buy a pilbara or fedora head block and block a felt fedora

straw hat

Not sure if I like the blue feathers with the hot pink trim. The good thing is the feathers can be easily taken out and put back in so it can be a changeable hat :]

flower making part 2

Aug 3, 2012 at 11:23 pm (fashion, hats, head pieces, school) (, , , , , , )

I gave the flower making a second try since I still need something to put on my cocktail hat. I only used the smaller petals and didn’t put a lot on. Turned out much better – also since I had better glue this time. I left the hat piece at school so I won’t be able to put the flowers on until Monday. I’ll also be blocking a wool felt hat. There’s only 2 classed left :[
