21  Bad 80's dress to halter dress!(pic heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swtater123 on: April 04, 2008 11:58:47 PM
Hey!  My grandma gave me this dress years ago.  It was definitely outdated, and had a stain on the back.  I thought I'd never be able to do anything with it, but had to keep it because grandma gave it to me, and she is no longer with us.  She really inspired me to sew, and use what you have, so I think she'd be proud.  I'd love to know what you all think!  All comments welcome.

22  Monkey Jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by swtater123 on: April 04, 2008 04:13:27 PM
Hey!  I found these little monkeys in the bubble gum machine at the grocery store, and knew they had to be jewelry.  You should have seen me and my daughter, we put every quarter we had in there. Grin  Unfortunately they sold out FAST and I didn't get all the ones I wanted, but these are still cute!  All comments are welcome and appreciated!

Here's the necklace:


and the earrings:

23  More Shrinky Dinks! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by swtater123 on: March 29, 2008 07:35:37 PM
This is a necklace and some earrings I made from shrinky dinks.  I had some glass beads that I love, and couldn't decide what to do with.  I was lying in bed looking at them (they were hung on the wall) because I couldn't sleep, and the idea just came to me to make a rain cloud necklace.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  The earrings are just made with a stencil I thought would be cute.  I used sharpies to color them in.   Let me know what you think!

24  Beaded necklaces and earrings (image heavy) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by swtater123 on: March 28, 2008 09:58:33 AM
I have been doing mostly shrinky dink jewelry until I saw some great beads at walmart.  Some were wooden, some were these beautiful moonstones, and I also got a bag full of turquoise colored plastic beads.  I have made six pieces so far, and still have beads left over!  These are the first I've done like this and would love some feedback.  Thanks for looking.  All comments are welcome.

These are a couple of earrings:



These are the two necklaces, the chains are made completely from eye pins:

25  First tee recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swtater123 on: March 09, 2008 05:07:10 PM
This is my first t-shirt recon, so I kinda did a little of everything.  I don't have a before pic, but it was just a pink t-shirt from Michaels.  I cut out the collar to make it off the shoulder, then made the straps from the bottom hem that I cut off.  I gathered it in the front so it fit better, did rouching (sp?) on both sides, and then used a heart stencil and spray painted it.  I did all the sewing with black thread to match the hearts.  I think it may be too much, but I really love it and would love to know what you all think!

Close up of stenciling: (yes, the splatters are intentional  Smiley )

26  Pocket Diapers w/ gussets. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by swtater123 on: February 21, 2008 01:59:59 PM
I have finally gotten around to making some pocket diapers with gussets!  I dedicated every free moment today to working on them.  I only got one completed. Sad  But I finished one the other day, and the rest are in the end stages.  Maybe they'll get done before my daughter outgrows them! Smiley  The gussets are great and really hold in all those messes.  I can't remember which pattern I used since I printed it out a while ago.  It was either the celtic cloths one or the mama bird.  I love it though!  Here's the pics.  I'd love to know what you all think!







Sorry there's no cute action shot, but I can't get the little one to sit still long enough!

27  Dress shirt recon. *Edit* Now w/ action shots. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swtater123 on: February 18, 2008 12:44:04 PM
Hey!  This is my first post in this section and have been so inspired by all of your creations!  Here's my first recon that I'm really happy with.  I made it from a men's dress shirt that was way to big.  I left the pocket (because I couldn't get it off) but think it makes it unique.  It looks really crooked on the too big dress form, but it looks great in real life.  I'd love to know what you all think.  Thanks for looking!

Here are the new action shots:

Back still looks crooked, but I promise it's not.

28  Shrinky Dinks! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by swtater123 on: February 12, 2008 09:48:45 AM
I finally got some shrinky dinks!  I didn't even know they still made them until I saw them on here.  These are my first ones and I am so addicted now.  They're not perfect, but I'm happy with them.  Let me know what you think!

This is a flower I did with a stencil:


A star:


This is a chipmunk I traced.  I colored him wrong, but I still think he's cute!:


I did this one with colored pencil, you can see the pencil marks when you hold it to the light which bugs me.  Now I want some better pencils.  I like the design though.


Thanks for looking.

29  Washer earings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by swtater123 on: February 11, 2008 11:43:18 AM
While I was at the hardware store looking for small eye screws (which apparently exist only online) I saw these washers and knew they were meant to be earrings.  I made two different styles.  One has a bigger chain and one has a smaller with less of the washers.  I can't decide which I like better.  Let me know what you think!  Thanks for looking!

The washers:


The bigger earrings:


And the smaller:

30  Jewelry organizer from old record in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by swtater123 on: January 21, 2008 04:58:47 PM
I'm not sure if this goes here.  This is a jewelry organizer made from an old record I melted holes in.  It took a while to melt all the holes, but I'm really happy with it.  I'm also gonna get some "s" hooks from the hardware store so I can hang necklaces on it too.
