My handmade stuff and other craftsies

Postby Shub Niggurath » Mon Aug 04, 2014 9:51 am

Hey,
I figured I'd share some of my handmade stuff. I love sewing, painting and creating various accessories and other stuff. Unfortunately I don't have photos of all my creations (like my witchy, earthy hand-sewn coat) but maybe I'll upload more once I'll have a chance to take some photos :)

My Fox scoodie (a hood with a scarf) made of some fleece scraps I found (unfortunately I don't have a better quality photo). Took me around 1 hour to make it:

My personal take on a Spirit Hood. It's a Bear, hand-sewn, made of faux fur of course. It's soo warm, love wearing it during Winter. I had to cover my face on this one cause I looked like a moron, hahaha. Took me around 3 days to make it:
Image

My hand-dyed and hand-sewn hip purse, made of faux leather. It's supposed to be attached to the belt to use it. Took me 2 days and a lot of fingers pain to make it:
Image

My first painting with acrylics, called "Under the Heaven's Roof":
Image

This diptic (painted on two canvases) I painted for my parents. It's called "Reflection" and it's inspired by Tool's song with the same title:
Image


Hope you enjoyed some of my random craftsy stuff. I know they might not be all that good but I love them anyway :)
If anyone's interested in seeing more I might get motivated to take pictures of other things I made and share them here.

Blessings <3

You are so talented! Your work is absolutely beautiful. I would love to see more! I wish I was crafty, but usually everything I make looks like it should be on a pinterest fail list lol.

Oh my goodness, are these ever gorgeous! I especially love the top two clothing pieces. (: I know my sister would absolutely LOVE that hoodie. She has a love for foxes.

I love this, I may just have to make one of these. It looks really warm, we get a-lot of snow up here in Michigan, and winter's coming up.

Awwww myyyy *O*
Thank you everyone for such kind words! I wasn't expecting such a positive reaction :oops:

TwilightDancer, you definitely need to make one for winter, it's the best thing ever :D Just don't buy a fur with too long hair or your sewing machine will tell you to fu... leave her alone ;p


Here's my favourite piece I've sewn from scratches and it's my Witchy Coat!

Sorry it's a bit creased, was laying in the wardrobe for too long. In fact it looks much better on me than on the hanger. I love it, was totally worth spending two days on sewing the whole thing and then another two on painting and sewing on the sign :D

I'll keep that in mind, lol.
It doesn't look too difficult. I'm not sure how I want to do the ears yet, that's the only part that looks tricky.

I love the witch coat too! The conical hat is adorable. =]

Aww, thank you so much, Xiao! <3
(Btw, I wanna see more of your pretty charms - that's a mad talent! :D)

TwilightDancer, it's not difficult at all, it's just that fur can be really annoying to sew ;p
Here's a simple pattern I sketched for you, hope it helps:

How lovely! I like the witchy coat too. But actually everything looks great.

I thought I'd share my first pyrographed crystal grid plate.
The pattern was inspired by Sigillum Dei Aemeth but I decided to simplify it as it's only going to serve as a crystal grid pattern, not an actual ritual tool.
I found this wooden plate in a thrift store and I was immediately like "Yay, that's going to be my first crystal grid plate!". But I've got to admit that sketching and doing measurements on an uneven surface like that (the plate is a bit concave) was HELL, so next time I'm going to buy a flat decoupage plate. Anyway, here it is with some crystals on:

It's not perfect but I'm still proud of myself - it's good enough as for my first time ever doing this kind of stuff ;)
Maybe I'm going to add some more details and symbols and maybe paint it as well, we'll see.

Interesting! Now I'm wondering about adding a crystal grid to my Aemeth plate.

Sneaky trick for uneven surfaces. Measure them out, then draw a circle on paper the same size. Tape that to your plate, and burn through it. It's always worked for me
So with thy all; thou hast no right but to do thy will.
Do that, and no other shall say nay.
For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect.

Whoa, so simple yet amazing tip. Why I haven't thought about that? Thanks for sharing, Random - I'm definitely going to use it next time I'll have to work on an uneven plate.
(P.S.: Since Aemeth is a heptagram it's perfect for chakra themed grids ;))
