Journal

Ta-da! (Posted 12th September 2013)

Bracelets complete! I also realised I needed to change the pattern for the insignia slightly and did so.

Top pattern? (Posted 9th September 2013)

I've been trying to figure out a pattern for the insignia - and I found the other day in a charity shop these gorgeous gold flares for cheap which had enough material (in one flared leg) for the gold part of the insignia, so I thought I'd post what I've done so far. I drew the rough shape of the W on a v-neck t-shirt I had in eyeliner (which will hopefully wash out as I like this top but I was a bit stressed and needed to do something to keep me busy to calm down) which I then traced onto a white v-neck I got in the charity shop. I hope, for the shirt, to buy several identical red v-neck t-shirts from Primark (or similar) and use one as the shirt and make the insignia pieces out of the others. The picture shows the pattern I have made for each of the red pieces and the gold piece.When that is done I will cut the base shirt down the v-neck (I will get a slightly larger t-shirt to accommodate this) and stitch in the zip I bought today. Then I will cut up a work shirt with the right collar and cuffs and attach those. I've never sewn a piece like this myself before so this could be interesting! But if I work on it now I should have enough time to get it commissioned before the event if it doesn't work.

Bracelets (Posted 1st September 2013)

Just need priming and painting

Earrings complete and bracelets started (Posted 31st August 2013)

Bracelets are made from Pringles cans covered with craft foam and the earrings are made from Premo Sculpey.

Belt buckle is complete! (Posted 26th July 2013)

Having slight problems because I couldn't get sand paper and rushed ahead and just painted it - I think it looks okay though. Made from Premo Sculpey. It's got two safety pins on the back and pins to a black belt I own already. The trouble is the paint either doesn't get in to the detail or blocks up the detail. Hopefully it looks okay?
