  1. Corrine did the Snookie video with the Key Of Awesome but she did Threadbanger for a long time, now she’s married to Rob (the man) and has her own show, Craftovision, you should check it out! Their both really talented, and watch their friend, MegAllanCole, too, she’s just as amazing as them!

  2. The costume is fantastic, I am really keen on making something like that for this year’s Haloween! But at the same tim I am little bit worried – isn’t the skirt very heavy? The old stretchy dress that I have is very stretchy actually, so I am thinking if it is not going to ruin it…

  4. OMg is she from the Key of Awesome:D??!??!??!

  5. I’m trying to do a cosplay of blair the cat witch from soul eater

  6. I have boots that would be awesome for this costume!

  7. i know this is really geeky but can you make a tutorial on a ciel phantomhive coustume… for women and 12 year old geekey girls?

  8. Is there a link to a website that sells the interfacing for the cone of the hat you can give me?

  9. How would you go about making a witch’s hat but having the end turned down to look a bit slouchy?

  10. okay I could kiss you right now!

  11. Horribly cheesy, yet hilarious begining. Love ya threadbanger.

  12. OMG. It’s so cool. I wanna make the hat now…

  13. i want to make a hat now!

  14. i think i would like the dress if it were shorter, i think. not whore-short but around the knee area… and then get some bright (black, lacy, hole-ly) stockings with some rad boots or blocky heels. and go for a little more lotia look….. that would be an idea at least.

    but its cool it goes to a more wicked kind-of look. ^_^

  15. Meet hot sexy Latino women now rockmycity.info

  16. the 6 who don’t like this is video are insane!!

  17. Forget that, It would be easier for me just to buy it.

  18. I miss you guys, its not the same anymore

  19. how did you make the newspaper pattern?

  20. Hiya, have been trying to do this pattern, but don’t know what am doing wrong please get back to me thank you.

  21. OMG! This is probably the best video I have watched of how to make a vest. Thank you for making it easy to understand.
    P.S. You look beautiful <3

  22. This was very helpful, adding to my to-do list. Love the editorial blurbs!

  23. lens flares? is this produced by JJ Abrams?

  24. You could trace a pattern from a shirt or tank top that fits you like you want the vest to fit. I think the easiest way to do it.

  25. You are doing it the right way. The extra steps are a pain but they create a longer lasting less likely to have a seam open up garment.

  26. thanks for the ideas, keep making the vids

  27. [disclaimer: this video is horrible]

    (looks at the view count)

    mhm… suuure…

  28. I love the newspaper idea!

  29. You didn’t do a backstitch, you might want to go back and do so so it’ll be a little stronger.

  30. If i were you, I would use threads the same color as my fabrics……but I’m not so….using different thread color is also colorful….

  31. how do you measure yoursel for the pattern??

  32. I notice when you sew you just leave the ends of the stitch be, whereas I was taught to go back over the ends of a stitch several time to insure it doesn’t come undone. Do your stitches come undone? Because it’s a pain to do it the way I just described.

  33. Thank you for this video.

  34. Nice voice

  35. how do you do the newspaper part?

  36. Thank you!

  37. Would it be okay if you just hand sew the whole piece? I don’t have enough money for a sewing machine, and I can’t borrow one from my family since they don’t own one either. I would expect it’d be tedious and time consuming(And messy, compared to sewing machines), but it would still be okay, right?

  38. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! making a megpoid gumi cosplay and this was very useful!! hopefully itll work!

  39. This is the worst sewing video I’ve ever seen. An utter waste of 10 minutes.

  40. Awesome video

  41. im not sure what she did but what i did was find a vest of mine and just trace the pattern off of that
