Iron Craft '13, Challenge #4: "… and the Winner is…"

This challenge was inspired by television or film [or the red carpet], due to the award season that has sprung up. I don't watch them, but if there is a clip of something awesome [usually a performance], i'll YouTube it later on. Since Sarina is the craftier of the two of us, she decided that making headbands with some awesome fabric she had would be perfect. She snagged some Star Wars, Star Trek + Marvel Comics prints a few weeks ago, so that is what we used. This is also the first time I used a sewing machine to sew fabric - the only other time I used it was to make paper streamers for Halloween.

Believe it or not, this was not as hard as I imagined it to be, although the bobbin decided to go apeshit on me at one point [I swear, it wasn't my fault]. I definitely feel more comfortable sewing + would love to create some cute pouches + headbands with the awesome fabric I picked up a couple months ago.

For our crafting adventure, I wore my old school E.T. shirt + donned my Black Milk The Last Judgment leggings, which is actually taken from a piece created by Jan van Eyck, created back in the 1400s. Pretty cool, huh?

I looked at Challenge #5 + its Green or "Green," which means we can use the color green, or create something that is earth-friendly. I'm thinking earth-friendly would be more up my alley, but who knows what I'll come up with!
