Phone art (Sasuke and L)

As the name suggests, these are some phone art i did on my friend's phones :D And it was super fun as i love to draw and anime is my other love :D I just made them 'cause i had their phones ]XD

L from Death note
Its Lawliet but shh.. Its supposed to be a secret.

Sasuke from Naruto
I really like chibi versions on anime girls/guys. They are super cute. (Chibi (ちび or チビ) is a Japanese slang word meaning "short person" or "small child". The word has gained currency among fans of manga and anime. Its meaning is of someone or some animal that is small in stature.)
I made a rough sketch using a pencil first, then drew over it with a black marker. To make it permanent i covered it with a back protector. Easy-peasy :D
I hope you liked this post. Leave a comment if you did :)

diy smock dress from shirt

Hello :D So here i am with the tutorial for that smock dress from my last post.

Things you will need:
  • A large shirt or t-shirt
  • Scissors
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Sewing machine (if you have one)

1. Cut out the sleeves as close to the seam as possible.

2. Hem the sleeves.

In retrospect, this should have been the last step (O.O)

3. Wear the shirt and mark the point where you would like to cut. Mine was 3" below my boobs.

4. In this step, i wore the upper part and made it fit better as the armholes were huge. Don't make it tight. I tried to take in as little as possible while making the armholes sit perfectly.

5. Now gather the lower/skirt part. I did this by sewing a straight line by hand and pulling the thread so as to 'gather' it.

6. Now pin the lower skirt part with the upper part by matching the sides correctly. You may have to 'gather' and 'ungather' at this point as well.

7. Now sew those parts together.

Wrong side

The (not so) straight line i sew by hand :D
Right side
Take out the thread you used to gather the skirt and ta-da, you have a cute dress of your own :D

You can do it with t-shirts as well by going through the same steps as above. Smock dresses are pretty forgiving. So if you want to make a pretty dress for yourself, i suggest you start by this.

Anyways, thanks for reading. Leave a comment if you liked it. :)

Job hunting or studies or fashion designing course?

Hola :D How are you all? I have been job hunting these days. Jobs are quite important you see. They give you money for your clothes and food after all. I wish i was as lucky as Gaby from Desperate Housewives when she went out to find a job T_T Getting to play dress-up with people and 40% discount on store items, what more can a girl ask for >.< Well free food and clothes, but no-one is that generous except your parents :D :P Waiting out for a job is easy when you have movies to keep you company :D 'Dumb and Dumber' is a classic movie!!! I can not stress it enough. No matter how many times you watch, it remains funny. :D Hats off to Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels!!

Even though i am job hunting, i am not even sure if its the right decision. I mean i do have an option for higher studies. Or should i go down some other path, like, fashion designing? Or should i learn from a seamstress? I can't decide. Every path have their own pros and cons, how do i choose from them then? Before i started sewing, higher studies was my priority. But now, i know how much i love making my own clothes. Its so confusing, as if i am on a cross-road and every road leads to a different destination and each one is beautiful. Am i making any sense? Because in my head, i am ~.~
Since my head was so full of thoughts, i had to clear it so that i could think straight so i did what i always do. I read a manga!! Its named 'Shigatsu wa kimi no uso' and is a beautiful story :D Every manga is beautiful, i don't judge :D Doing something you love really clears up your head and you, automatically, starts feeling good. I am still not a 100% sure but i think i would love to continue sewing along with a part-time job. This answer seems easy enough but for me, it was a bit more complicated than that. But i asked about it and i guess papa is okay with my decision, makes me happy :)

I did sew something (babydoll dress or smock dress) yesterday :D I used my brother's shirt for this DIY but any XL shirt/t-shirt will do. Here is the final pic:

It is a super easy diy project :D And was quite fun to make. My next post will be about it. So tune in :D God, i always wanted to say that :D

Thanks for reading my post :D

Farewell party / Saree craze

Hello y'all!! I am so into saree these days. I mean look at them, they can make a girl go from 0 to hot (even me)
We had our dreaded and most anticipated farewell a while back, dreaded due to the timing and all. But it turned out just fine, in fact more than just fine. It was a fun day/evening and quite eventful. I lost my purse and when i found it somebody had already taken out all the money out of it ~.~ so that was a bad end. Do you guys carry your purses all the time? Even during dancing? If so, then how? 
I was skeptical about wearing a saree ~.~ I am 5'2" with a really small frame, I can pass for a school going girl somedays ~.~ Am i complimenting myself? Naah :P And i was told that i would look weird in a saree. A girl's gotta prove herself you know :D Well anyhoo, I bought this saree specially for farewell and bought matching accessories and footwear as well. It was hard to move in saree as i wore heels but i got the hang of it bit by bit. I couldn't even change my footwear as the saree was wrapped according to my height with heels. Ugh! My feet hurt by the time i was finished but so worth it!! d(^_^)b

So this is me :D

The blouse i wore wasn't how i asked it to be made but the lady made it so and since there was no other option, i had to wear it. But i think i like this one better :O

I tried straightening my hair and it didn't stay straight all day long T.T Any ideas on straightners? I have sorta curly hair if that helps ~.~

I wore some pearly ear-rings but they were too heavy and hurted while i danced so i took them off. Any tips on how to accessorize sarees? 

So all in all, i can say it was pretty eventful :D
Well guys, thanks for reading :)

Sorry (hibernation and college special)

Hey everyone, sorry i have been hibernating. Okay, that's a lie, i am not a bear but trust me, if i could i would go into hibernation. I like that word 'hibernation'. :D
So i am a full fledged engineer now. Yay \o/\o/\o/ I got my results yesterday and i passed with an honors degree :D
The past few months have been a wreck. ~.~ I didn't know how hard engineering was and how tough dealing with teachers can be :/ I know i am not liked by many teachers in my college, they think i am eccentric and what not. I am a fun-loving person by heart and nature, i like to enjoy myself but that doesn't mean i would do something mean towards my teachers. I have never once been rude towards any teacher and there are some i actually respect. But what happens when a teacher has a personal vendetta against you without any reason? They make you work like crazy, taunt you, embarrass you infront of everybody, make you stay extra hours! I am not trying to say every teacher is like this. I have met many who have impacted my life greatly in a positive way and still do. But there are some teachers who are out to get you just 'cause they don't like you. It sounds absurd, but it is, what it is. I was treated differently. I was threatened by my teacher that he will not let me pass. If i did anything wrong that threat would have been valid but nope, i did the same amount of work everybody else did. I know in the end, he gave me the credits i deserved. I may be over-reacting but those days were like mental torture to me.
I am sorry about ranting but i wanted to write about it. Do a person need to be a teacher's pet to get good credits? Should a teacher be allowed to do this? I have been respectful to that teacher and never gave him any trouble, still i had to go through all that? Even know i don't understand why i was singled out?
Anyways, thanks for reading you guys. And i am sorry for being gone.

Bracelet stacking!!

When i first saw someone on the internet wearing a lot of bracelets on their wrists/arms, i was like 'that looks easy, even i can do that.' That was 2 years ago and for the love of god i still can't figure it out (-.- )

'Stacked bracelets' should look like this:

or this:

I guess now we have established how a perfectly stacked arm candies should look like. So let us take a look at my attempts.

Close enough? ;D
Do you have any tips on how to 'perfect' this technique? 'cause as you can see, i need help :D So do tell me about it.

Thanks for reading :)
