Threw this baby together last night based on these instructions. Was a little shy on red felt so need to pick up a bit more to fill in the inside so you can’t see the green styrofoam ring peeking from an angle. Other than that, pretty obsessed.

Carte Postale Zipper Pouch | The Graphics Fairy
One of my favourite things to craft with is tshirt transfer paper. You can create your own printed fabric and there are so many fantastic projects out there using it. This is a great example - just download the vintage picture of an old letter, print it onto the paper, iron it onto your fabric and sew it up (ok, a little harder than that but not super hard!). A perfect little pouch to chuck your tablets, jewellery or spare change!

Faux Leather Accent Foldover Clutch | You & Mie
I really love the faux leather detail of these clutches - why would you want to use real leather when you can get the same look from faux!? Plus think of all the stuff I could fit into these… though they may not be able to fold over then… oh well!

Circle Skirt Tutorial by Kapalaka
Circle skirts are one of the handiest things you can learn to make for cosplay.  As far as simple-to-make skirts go, there are two types: circle skirts and rectangle skirts.  A rectangle skirts is where you cut out a large rectangle, and gather or pleat all of the excess material until it will fit your waist, giving you a nice full skirt (we explained it in a bit more detail on this over here).
Circle skirts, on the other hand, give you a lot of nice fullness, but with minimal bulk at the waist.  For example, my Babs Bunny skirt:

It might not seem like it, but there are a ton of different things you can do with circle skirts.  Long circle skirts (as outlined in the tutorial) are perfect for ball gowns.  If you need less fullness, you can make a half circle skirt or a 3/4 circle skirt (just use a half circle or 3/4 of a circle, instead of the full circle).  If you need more fullness, make several circle skirts (make sure you adjust the waist measurement accordingly, i.e. for 2 circle skirts, use half your waist measurement on both of them), and sew them all together.  Here’s an example of that technique (with gathers and horse hair braid in the hem.  Tutorial for how she made it here)

You can add pleats or scallops in the hem, layer a whole bunch on top of each other, or whatever else you want to do:

I’ve even known some people to make capes and cloaks and the like using a circle skirt as the basis of their pattern.  So go forth!  Go forth and use circles!

DIY Fox Slippers

DIY fox slippers, embroidered fox slippers, fox face slippers, what i wore, @whatiwore, Jessica Quirk, DIY

WhatIWore: Embroidered slippers have been a big trend for fall, but they seem to be SO expensive. So I made my own and you can too!  I took my favorite critter (FOXES!) and embroidered them onto an inexpensive pair of slippers. Best of all, my mom and sis were in town and we all sat around the dining room table working on our respective crafts. Full DIY after the jump!

tiny pocket tank sew-along part 9: binding, hemming, finishing

icouldmakethat:

image(You can see all the sew-along posts here. Don’t worry, non-sewers! I’ll have other types of posts up during the sew-along too.)

Hey, so let’s finish this baby up, shall we? I’m going to show you how to finish the neckline and armholes, then we’ll hem.

Do you remember these bias strips you cut up at the beginning? Let’s use those now. Make sure that any parts you sewed together have pressed-open seams, like so:

image

Let’s start with the neckline. Measure the circumference of the neckline, and cut a length of bias strip equal to the circumference of your neckline plus one inch. Sew the ends of that strip together right sides facing, using a 1/2 inch seam allowance.

image

Press that seam open, and now you have a circle of bias strip that will fit all the way around your neckline.
