My halloween’s Mad Hatter version

I know Halloween is nowhere near, but I wanted to share with you last year´s costumes I made for me and my friends. As must of us, I love Alice in wonderland, and I was so excited about the movie coming out. So me and my friends decided to go a party as Alice in wonderland´s characters. I made and designed all of the costumes. we had a blast!

The original

My version.

I wish I had a closer picture of the hat, it was just like the one Johny Deep was wearing in the movie. I used Threadbanger´s tutorial.

And for the makeup I used this tutorial… I can’t never get the white color smooth like she does.

The group

I have to say, we had the best costumes at the party, everybody was taking pictures of us, it was like we were celebrities arriving at the red carpet. Nice!!! ….What wasn´t very nice, was doing my hear like that… Ja ja ja I couldn´t find an orange wig here in Cancun, I had one blond and tried to painted with the colored hair spray but didn´t work quite well, so my last option was doing a hair crepe and paint it. Bad choice dough!!! It was a nightmare the day after, trying to get it nice and flat again, I had to use an entire bottle of conditioner. I´ll think about this twice before I decide to do it again.

Flower tutorials

I have 3 cousins with new babies, and one more coming, so that kind of woke up my motherly side.. I´m using this tutorials to make flowers for some refashioned onesies.

Moon bag, completed

Do you remember that I was trying to make a bag that I found on a magazine? well I have finished it, I know, it doesn’t look exactly like the magazine, but still I really liked the way it turn out to be. I leave the tutorial, sorry, I’m not very good writing tutorials but I’ll try to do my best.


T U T O R I A L

1.-  Cut 2 A, 2 B and 2 C, and 2 A for lining.
B has to be double the length of the inside curve.

2.- Fold B in half  lengthwise.
Make the gathering along the edge with basting stitches.

3.- Mark center of A and B
Pin gathered B to center and corners of A right sides facing
stitch around the edges of inside curve
Topstitch to finish
Do the same for other side of the bag.

4.- join 2 A right sides facing and stitch around outside curve
turn, and attach lining the easiest way you know.
(sorry about this part, it was a bit complicated to attach the lining and I can’t explain it in English)

5.- Fold C in half  lengthwise, stitch around the seam edges, leave one side open to turn, turn and iron to make your handles.
insert the handles into the gathered tube made from B, make a bow, and “taran” your bag is ready.

Sorry I told you I’m not very good with Tutorial, hope it works for you, I’ll try to take pictures of the process to explain better.

Half moon bag, in progress

I saw this bag in a magazine, and really really liked it, and today I decided to give it a try, maybe I could make one for myself.

After many trials and errors, I kind of get it. Sorry this is a raw model, I didn´t want to spend a lot of time with the lining and details and maybe it will not be right at the end. But now that I know it kind of looks like the one in the magazine I will make a good one.
Has anybody made a bag like this? any advice on sewing round stuff?

Vi esta bolsa en una revista y me encanto, asi que hoy decidi intentarlo, a ver si me puedo hacer una igual.
Despues de muchas pruebas fallidas, como que me salio bien al fin, Disculpen es un modelos burdo, no queria gastar mucho tiempo con los detalles y el forro y que al final no me quedara bien.
Alguien de Ustedes ha hecho una bolsa como esta, algun consejo para coser en redondo?

Chaos T Shirt, By compai

I run into this Recon T Shirt tutorial by Compai a while ago, and since my fisrt recostruction T shirt came out well I kind of loose the fear of sawing clothes. So here it is, this is my version of the Chaos T Shirt, I add some pleats to the sides and the top of what was left from the sleeves. I think I’m going to try it with a lighter cotton.

Hace algun tiempo ya, me tope con este tutorial para hacer esta camiseta, no me habia decidio a hacerla pues me daba un poco de miedito; pero como mi primer reconstruccion de camiseta salio bien pues me decidi, y como que le perdi un poco el miedo a coser ropa. Y aqui tienen mi version de la Camiseta Caos, de Compai. Como utilice una camiseta de hombre, a la hora de cortarle las mangas pues me quedaron unos huecos muy grandes, asi que le añadi unos cuantos pliegues a los lados y en la parte de arriba de lo que serian las mangas. Seguire practicando pero la proxima vez creo que lo voy a intentar con una camiseta de algodon mas ligero.

Empire cut Blouse, T-Shirt reconstruction with Tutorial

I’ve been fascinated with all the T shirt reconstruction I’ve seen around, so yesterday, I was bored and decided to make my own reconstruction.. I had a big t shirt (it was my mom’s) I trace it and start cutting… This is how it looks like, I can’t wear tight T-shirts, very often I get stomach inflammation because thanks to digestive problems, and sometimes I look like I’m 4 months pregnant, so this blouse is perfect for those days. Of course I need to perfection it but it wasn’t that bad for my first attempt, what do you think?

well I thought I made a tutorial of how I made it.. please bear with me since English is not my first language, and if something needs corrections or do you need more explanation please let me know, this will also be my first tutorial.
