1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a jewelry holder -- for free! on: July 29, 2008 07:42:47 PM

tree branch


I just placed some thumbtacks around a few of the branches, and then wrapped them with plastic black hair elastics to hold it in place and voila!
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / cheap new floor for my bathroom on: July 29, 2008 07:29:21 PM
Right, so I kind of live in a dump. I'm okay with this, because I'm a student and my apartment location is awesome. My landlady is super-cool, but the building I live in is really old and in need of many updates. My bathroom floor appears to be rotting, it's totally gross.

So, I went to Dollarama and bought some vinyl adhesive back tiles (three for a dollar). I didn't want to stick them directly to the floor, since I don't own the place and it isn't exactly a permanent fix. So I bought a plastic table cloth, flattened and taped it to the rotting floor, and then stuck the vinyl on top of that. You can lift it up at any edge, but strategically-placed bath mats make it look like the real thing!

I forgot to take a really good before picture, but here's an idea of what it was like:

And here it is now:

Now, if I could only get rid of the awful pink tile on the wall.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / yellow dress with bubble hem on: July 13, 2008 01:26:18 PM
I made this dress for a wedding I'm attending in two weeks. I had a dress in mind for a long time, and since I couldn't find what I wanted, I had to make it. Smiley I used Simplicity 4070.

It still needs a final press.

And these are the shoes I'll probably wear:

Let me know what you think. Personally, I think it's a little plain, I need some suggestions as to what I can do to jazz this baby up! Thanks gang!
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Magazine to clutch for the spy in all of us! on: June 10, 2005 02:05:56 PM
It pretty much speaks for itself.





It's not quite finished, I need to put some adheisive velcro on the inside. The idea is that its supposed to look like you're just holding a buckled magazine. This was really just a practice, the next one should be even more inconspicuous than the last!

It's my reversible jordy!

It was my first try at a reversible one, it's pretty basic, but I'm proud. Too bad I don't like Spongebob all that much. haha.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A DIFFERENT Shirt and skirt (tutorials added) on: March 05, 2005 10:28:23 PM
This time we have a shrug (that I based on one I saw here) and a square skirt.

7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt and Shirt (I'm very proud) on: March 05, 2005 10:25:55 PM
teeny Zep shirt + teeny purple shirt + 2(Scraps of Dad's old shirt) = Most fun I've had with a shirt in a long time.

AND! A pillowcase skirt, that needs to be dyed or otherwise spiced up (it's very see-through).

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Three Skirts on: January 22, 2005 09:42:00 PM
Made from a sheet:

A tutu I made for my friend, Candice:

Made for some scrap I found at a thrift store and some stretchy material from an old skirt:
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Boyfriend's old t-shirt lives again! on: January 17, 2005 07:00:48 PM


I used a little scrap yellow fabric for the trim, too, obviously.
10  CLOTHING / Costumes: Completed Projects / Class Hoodie and a 50s style costume on: December 30, 2004 09:31:02 AM

Here is one of those gigantic hoodies you get when you graduate. I tightened mine, reposistioned the sleeves, and added a zipper. It actually comes down past my butt -- I can wear it like a dress! In this picture I have it tucked under.


I made four of these costumes using:
-A huge black silk scarf
-a big, long sleeved, thrifted shirt
-Rit dye (two packs of scarlet red Shocked)
-Twin sheets.
-Lots of elastic!

I made four idenetical costumes so you can see why I needed so many sheets and so much dye. The skirt ends right below the bottom of the picture.
