1  Re: Star Trek Swap Gallery in The Swap Gallery by selena! on: October 19, 2007 09:45:40 PM
i got my package from The Crafty Cat a few days ago, but have been so bogged down with school and work that it's taken me a few days...



a lovely cross-stitched bookmark!



originally one tribble was sent...  but it had a bit of a baby in transit...  there was also a quadro-triticale, but don't worry, they were kept seperate.



and my very own captain's log!  my roommate took the liberty of filling out a few of the dates for me while i was at class, apparently this wasn't just a one time thing.

i also got a personalized cookbook but forgot to take a picture seeing as how it made it's way to the kitchen bookshelf with all the other cookbooks before i snapped the picture.

and i feel like a super big bonehead for the romunlin faux-pa...  feel free to make an edit to the pillow.  i base most of my star trek knowledge to the original six and the time that my mom and i had the marathon was when i was twelve (which is longer ago than i thought) and my mind must be failing me.  i knew something bled blue and i guess i got mixed up...  fail...

2  recycled knit sweater! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by selena! on: September 02, 2007 10:39:50 PM
my friend (who is a boy) said that this sweater shrunk in the wash, and no longer fit him length-wise (he's like 6'5", so that's not hard to do...).

i stumbled upon it while hanging out in his room and he said that i could have it, figuring that i could do something with it.  as you can see, men's large aren't really meant for flattering and looking cute...



so, after some cutting and sewing, i jazzed it up a bit!


he's a close-up of the buttons and button holes which came from another recon project that included a pair of men's slacks!  the whole in the top is from a button-hole attempt gone wrong, which made me switch to the slacks, i'll probably patch that up as soon as this topic is finished!



let me know what you think!

3  bed sheet dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by selena! on: September 02, 2007 10:33:21 PM
so, i was at the thrift store one day, and this fabric caught my eye...


so i snatched that bad boy up for a whole dollar and made this today!




that's my roomie in the background, she wanted to be apart of the action, and she was my advising committee that influenced the bow and straps!

4  how i spent my summer vacation (img. heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by selena! on: August 04, 2007 01:26:29 PM
so, i'm living in cincinnati for the summer, and i was so excited that my roommate had a sewing machine seeing as how car space was going to be tight, and i didn't know if it would have been able to make the trip.

i've been sewing and reconstructing for a few years and just now hopped onto the wagon to share my sweet threads!

so, without further adieu, my cincinnati summer projects!

too big men's button up to tank:

before


after


XL men's polo to fitted shirt:
before


after


this one was a slightly too big un-flattering v-neck that i "poor man's screen printed" and turned into a tank (sorry, no before pic, it was a pretty typical shirt)




and this one isn't really a recon, but i didn't know if i had enough pictures to warrant another post, this was more of a sunday afternoon project.  the cool thing about this dress is that today (while garage sailing) this guy asked me where i got my 60s style dress, because he hasn't seen anything like it since that time!
