CraftyBitch 101: Recycled Steampunk Necklace Tutorial The other day, I mentioned another current craft obsession. I am officially addicted to steampunk! In particular, I have been creating steampunk jewelry using as many recycled materials as possible. For example, the necklace pictured above is made from a cranberry juice bottle cap! I have a lot more ideas and a few works in progress, but you can see what I have finished so far at my new Artfire shop, Refashionista. I also have been writing an arts and crafts column at Examiner, and today I posted a tutorial complete with photos showing how I made the necklace shown above!

Picture 208 « Sewing Tutorial: Piggy Pillow As promised, I have completed the tutorial and the pattern for the “Be My Valentine – Piggy Pillow”, which was published 3 weeks ago. This time I made a pair for my kids, they love it. You may not be able to do it in time for this valentine but as I said, if you have love in you, everyday is valentine. Hope you sew some for your loved ones no matter if it is Feb 14. Besides as a pillow, you can use this pattern to make into other things, for example, pin cushion, smaller softy as gift, or a piggy back pack for little children. Just change the size by reducing or enlarging and modify it to fit into your design.

These pieces remind us of the literary worlds of Jules Verne. The fashion and accessories for this style is continually growing in popularity. So here are more steampunk jewelry tutorials to inspire. Andrea Morici designed this wonderful Full Steam Ahead necklace tutorial using many gears, clock parts and vintage brass elements for Beadaholique.

sewing 101: making a duvet cover I don’t know about you, but I never cease to be shocked at the price of bedding. And nothing sets off my “I could make that myself so much cheaper and better” instincts like duvet covers. It’s just a big flat case of fabric, yet even the simplest options easily soar into the three digits—but all it takes to make your own is a bunch of fabric, a few straight seams, and a spare afternoon.

During winter we usually have to dress ourselves up from head to toe, leaving no area exposed to the icy winter chill. Bonfit vs. Kenneth King's Moulage CD After starting a SewAlong for the Bonfit Bodice on, I decided it would be neat to compare the results of a basic bodice sloper with Kenneth King's Moulage. Here's the first post on the progress of that comparison. Bonfit is a plastic patterner with sliding panels and knobs that tighten to hold them in place. It's supposedly a basic pattern that can be used to make nearly anything you want. This one is for the Bodice and can be used for tops, shirts, and uh.... bottomless dresses?

How to Make Steampunk Jewelry Wikipedia defines Steampunk as “a subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used-usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England-but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles or analog computers; these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or a presumption of functionality.

How to sew a fagoted seam A fagoted seam is a decorative seam that joins two pieces of fabric together with a space between them and a row of hand stitching. It’s a very pretty detail seen most often in vintage clothing. It’s easy to incorporate this kind of seam into any patterns you make that have a yoke, or any other simple seam. In this case, I’m making a silk blouse with a V-shaped yoke. So the two pieces fit together, forming a V-shaped seam. DIY BEC & BRIDGE INSPIRED OMBRE TEE 21st December 2011 I recently got carried away ombre dying practically everything in my wardrobe. In addition to the ombre mini I did for Harper’s BAZAAR last week, this tee (on the left) is one of my other projects, inspired by none other than the stunning High Summer Bec & Bridge collection. I’m not going to lie, the process I used was identical to that of the ombre mini I made and posted about over at Harper’s BAZAAR, but I really wanted to show you this little piece. For those of you who didn’t catch my tutorial, check out my instructions below. You Need: - A white tee (mine is from H&M) - Purple dye - Salt - Bucket - Water
