    omatic commented on the project EXAGGERATED OVERSHIRT

    This shirt is awesome: great greens, fit, sleeve details, collar. Did you sponge paint the top part? Is it lined? Is the collar a separate piece in back and a continuation of the body piece in the …

    Dsc_3494_listing

    my friend and I have an ongoing craft conundrum: is there a non-kitchy use for plastic canvas—that stiff plastic grid material found in craft stores that is normally reserved for kleenex box cover…

    Dsc_3498_listing

    I made this necklace during a leather craft night with a friend…very simple to make: I made a pattern that echoed my collar bone (using tracing paper); used rubber cement to glue two leather chev…

    My cat hates this cape so much! I only put it on him once before giving it to a friend as a present for a little girl’s birthday party. She apparently loves it. Lesson learned: make capes for kids,…

    My first project with my new mitsubishi walking foot. I’m in love with the machine and the bag. It has two lined pockets on the outside; a padded computer case, a zipper pocket and two other pocket…

    oh so comfy blue thai fisherman’s pants. I looked at the thai fisherman’s pants instructions, but made my own pattern and it worked out quite well.

    I love me some silk and velvet. But I honestly must agree with the rest of the crew and say cotton…cause it’s the easiest to work with and it’s oh so comfy to wear.

    A friend recently told me that I would look good in the american apparel batwing hoodie. Of course I hate purchasing things I can make myself and I’m kinda over hoodies, so I made my own batwing sh…

    This blouse was a little too small so I used a green zipper and now it fits perfectly. I love the pattern of the fabric. the tie collar of this pattern works so well with the print.

    I made this out of a bunch of scraps and I’m quite happy about how it turned out. It’s just a couple of circles and a few rectangles with orange piping (made out of an old raincoat), a big pocket …

    Made this a while back ‘cause I found several yards of teal velour at the bins. oh so grandma-core. I wear it jogging all winter. Not really the ideal breathability for running, but it’s warm an…

    omatic commented on the project asymmetrical cowl dress

    I didn’t use a pattern. I traced the armholes and the top of the sleeves from the lydia shirt pattern (which is, ironically, the only wonky part of the dress) and used the free pattern for a cowl …
