11  Simplicity 4668 purses (large pic's) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Amphigorey on: August 16, 2005 04:27:51 PM
This purse sews up quick and easy; however, it's really big, but not too big to carry.

My mom had the brilliant idea to shrink the pattern on a copier.  It turned out like a more normal sized purse.

12  Tank from robotsrock's smock top tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Amphigorey on: August 16, 2005 03:46:04 PM
Thanks to robotsrock for the great tutorial.  It was very clear and easy to understand.  I had to make the main part of the shirt a little smaller.  I used a pillowcase from the as-is bin at Ikea which was about $1.

13  Crochet (cowboy) Hat & Beanie in Crochet: Completed Projects by Amphigorey on: August 16, 2005 02:14:19 PM
I made this hat trying to copy a straw hat that I had.  Although, I couldn't figure out how to eliminate the gaps every time I started a new row.

When I pin up the sides I have a little cowboy hat. (credit my sister for that idea  Smiley)

I don't remember what size crochet hook I used for this beanie, but it was one of the large plastic ones.

14  My first shirt and another in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Amphigorey on: August 11, 2005 12:18:44 PM
This is the first shirt I've ever made.  It's from simplicity 5194 and wasn't too difficult.  I would probably recommend lengthening the shirt (although I don't know how) because it shows my belly button which seams wierd for this style shirt.

This halter was very easy to make.  It was Simplicity 5507.

Thanks for looking Smiley

15  Young Frankenstein & Robert Smith in Stenciling: Completed Projects by Amphigorey on: August 10, 2005 05:31:37 PM
My sister and I stenciled this shirt for our dad for father's day.  We used a clorox bleach pen and an image printed from our computer, hence the fuzzy lines.

I also stenciled this Robert Smith shirt in the same manner.

I went as an autumn fairy last halloween. I stitched a bunch of fake leaves onto a tank top and a few to the skirt.  The wings were wire hangers.  They are attached at the center with electrical tape then i shaped the two rectangles into wings. I hot glued the fabric and used straps to a convertable bra to hold the wings on.  The shoes were my clear prom shoes, I used a hot glue gun to attach leaves to them.  As a group costume, each person could go as a different season or element of nature.  Not a very good quality picture, i'm new to posting pictures.

A few years ago I dressed up as dirty laundry.  I cut a hole in a laundry basket (not a hamper, but a shallower basket) and put it around my waist (hurts a little to get off and on).  I hung clothes and dryer sheets on it.  You can wear anything you want and add things like detergent containers...
