1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / a few long awaited recons... on: June 05, 2008 02:10:34 PM
So this is pretty much my first post to show off some stuff I've whipped up. I've been sewing like crazy...made my son a Pokemon hoodie, been making stuff to sell, and finally got around to doing some recons for myself!  Grin
I'm much too anxious of a sewer to take before pics. An instant satisfaction kinda girl...hehe Hopefully, I'll remeber next time.


Boxy boring Freddy t-shirt turned into contoured & ruffled bust halter. The ruffled part used to be a bandana.

The same T turned pullover, fitted hoodie. I made the red and green stripes out of two old t-shirts too. Every part of it was a t-shirt except the skull bandana I lined the hood with.

I stocked up on what was left of these horror Ts at Wal-Marts after Halloween clearance cause I loooooove horror movies!  Wink

I did a few other recons, but haven't taken pics yet..
2  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / X-men Wolverine & Gambit on: September 06, 2007 11:31:21 AM
My kids both wanna be X-Men this year.
My oldest wants to be the new Wolverine(black leather uniform) found some pleather pants that'll work need to find something to rip apart to make the top then embellish everything and finish off with gloves and "metal" claws.
 So far so good on my youngest sons Gambit costume(classic comic book colors..pink/blue with brown trench). I've finished the pants headpiece and nearly done with the top. I've also found the perfect color brown for the trench coat in the $1/yd fabric section of Wal-Mart but I don't know where to start on it(don't want to ruin it, it's the PERFECT color and the last of it!)...anyone know of a trenchcoat pattern or tute anywhere? (has to be FREE! I'm BROKE)
3  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Flippin sweet hoodie for my son..GOSH! on: August 16, 2007 03:40:28 PM
 Cheesy Hi, I'm kinda new, well long time lurker, new to the boards though. I finally registered. LOL
I was about to take a bag of no longer fits/no longer used clothes to the curb(how I freecycle here...poor neighborhood. Whenever I put something out, within seconds it's been claimed! Grin)..anyways, I decided to put a few old things to use. My 7 yr old son LOVES Napolean Dynamite...I know weird kid. Cheesy and I had this boxy tshirt I never wear anymore, that along with a salvaged zipper from his old hoodie and an outgrown pair fleece sweats...tada.
He loves it, but I think I'm gonna do a bit more work before he wears it out in public (plenty of time for that, it's been over 100 degrees!LOL) I need to raise the sleeves up to where his shoulders actually are, it looks dopey right now.
