I just finished these lovely custom Cotton Velvet Bloomers for the wickedly wonderful MrsEvils. I don't have enough yardage left to remake these so she is definitely one lucky lady that just so happens to have a Capelet to match.


And, I finally got around to listing these two below. Huzzah!

My usual design (left) and a pair in the style of the Civil War era (right). The fabric and stitching are not to period on the Civil War styled ones though or it would have taken forever and a day to make them. Never you mind that it took that long to list them. Also they are completely, um, vented *teehee*. See the listing for a full description if you don't know what that means.


These two pairs of Bloomers are some of the last of my 1" black & white striped fabric so you won't be seeing others like these unless I get lucky and hunt some more down at a reasonable price! If you are interested in either of these please read the measurements given in the listings carefully. They are final sale, no returns, being undergarments and all.

Off to de-velvet-fluff my workroom! ;)

EtsyDarkTeam's Year Long Birthday Swap, Pt 2: IllustratedInk

As I mentioned in my previous post, I got to create for two of my EtsyDarkTeam mates. My second Birthday Swap gift was for IllustratedInk.

IllustratedInk is a fan of tattoo art and Dia de los Muertos items so I made her a 8" x 5.5" El Corazon patch. It was free-motion stitched on a Pfaff 230 with a little help from the embroidery functions on the arrow. I took my inspiration from the El Corazon card in the spanish game of Loteria.

It's done on black brocade with red, yellow & blue stitching and has a red satin ribbon border. It can either be framed ~or~ ironed onto almost any fabric item since I backed it with Wonder Under.

I'm still loving the popup bat idea so I made IllustratedInk a similar card. Again, the template for the popup bat came from here.


Too bad I have to wait until September to find out what I get! I'm sure it will be awesome.

EtsyDarkTeam's Year Long Birthday Swap, Pt 1: SkeletalDropkick

I'm a part of a another cool swap with EtsyDarkTeam, the Year Long Birthday Swap. I've created for two of my awesome team mates so far.

First up is SkeletalDropkick who is a fan of anime and pandas, among other things. So I dug into my felty goodness and stitched her up an anime panda! Which has been named... Panda Hotep. Yes, an excellent name.

The sign can be taken out of his hand and other things put in. Like a flower or maybe a small cocktail sword. What were you thinking? ;) At just over 4" tall he can be carried around in a pocket or hung on a ornament hook from the loop on the back of his head. Hotep has decided to watch over Dropkick's car.

I used textured burgundy card stock for the card, origami paper for the bat popup, glued tiny gold stars for the eyes and of course I had to use my bat-fetti. I found the bat popup template here if anyone else wants to try it out. There are a bunch of other really cool free popup templates there too. Note: I cut out and glued an extra piece onto the bat popup to cover the face so the only white is the teeth.


There are detail photos in my Flickr if anyone wants a closer look at the popup bat or Panda Hotep.
