I love these so much.   My wedding boots.   I keep meaning to do a tutorial on how I made them.  But they started out white xxhi converse.  

Matching corsets I made for a friend’s wedding party.   Cotton fabric with a coutil strength layer, they were each lined and made reversible with fabric individual to each woman.  One had rainbow skulls, one had cats and one had mustaches.  The fronts were then scattered with swarovsi hot fix crystals over the stars.  They’re kind of hard to see in photos.  

I was not overly thrilled with the fit on these. It was SUPER hard to get people in for fittings.

This is the shawl I made for my mother-in-law.   It took four skeins of Homespun yarn in Regency and is made using a Broomstick lace pattern.   The first pic is me modeling it for a good picture. The second one is her wearing it on Christmas.   The third one is a close up of the shawl pin I made.  It was my first attempt at soutache beadwork.  I’m really super happy with how the entire project came out.

For the holidays this year I also did a lot of earrings.    The top pair with the dragon flies were for my mom.   The middle two pair were for my sister in law an the bottom pair were for my fabulous girlfriend qGlas.

Ugh…so much I didn’t cross post.   Earrings….see above.  <3

I also did my fair share of geeky gifts.    I made a Hawkeye necklace for my girlfriend qGlas using a charm I got from Forty Second Seal on Etsy.    Then using the Winter Soldier/Cap heart I also got from there made my wife a Bucky/Steve Shipper keychain.    Then finally made my wife an Agent Phil Coulson Amigurumi doll.  I used Pixelated Mushroom’s Captain Jack Harkness Doll as a guideline, but made it smaller and improvised most of the clothing including the little tie and the collared shirt.

This was  my entry for the 2013 Beyond Pink Bra Auction.  Modeled by the lovely Dolly Darling.   I really enjoyed making this piece.  It sold for $425 and went to a woman who has just finished radiation after a double mastectomy , purchased for her by a friend that said she wanted to give her something that would make her feel beautiful.  

Oops. Just realized I never cross posted this over here.  So this is a standard white bra embellished with sequins, seed beads, swarovski crystals, hot fix crystals and chiffon roses I made.   

Bustle with single petticoat.    I should get on in just the bustle which is a lovely striped taffeta you can kinda see through the placket.  Now to flounce!
