11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 1940's Style Summer Set, Sun Top & Shorts on: July 30, 2009 03:06:27 AM
I made the top two years ago and the shorts last year.
I had all the intentions to post this summery set but I totally forgot in the end.

I made both the top and the shorts without a pattern, I did my best to copy a top
and shorts I already had.
The fabric I used was actually a kids bed set I found on sale a long time ago.
I thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread.  Grin





Thanks for looking!
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Naughty Knickers on: July 23, 2009 11:46:28 AM

If you don't get or like the pun, too bad.

1. I bought a pair of white knickers at a local store.
2. I washed them to remove chemicals, as you should before printing.
3. I bought a transfer paper at my local hobby supplier.
4. I put the transfer paper in my printer and printed the motif.
5. I ironed the motif onto the knickers. I followed the manufacturer's
directions of how long I needed to iron on the print for best result.
6. I made a bow and attached the bow onto the hem.

Thanks for looking!

Those are beautiful! I have to say, I absolutely adore all of your creations.
I was just wondering where you bought the hair combs from, did you buy them in store or order them online?

I bought the transparent combs in my local hair supply store.
The roses are from a low price store.
14  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Pale Blue 1950's Style Hair Band on: July 20, 2009 12:19:57 PM


One of many hair bands I've made.
Easy and fun to make.

I used a pale blue ribbon with white polka dots (found it at my local haberdashery store),
I also used elastic band and a button in the back.
I used the idea from the Craftster book.
Thank you Leah!

I'm always gluing hair flowers and these combs is just two of many I've made over the years.

These cost me around 50 pence/pair to make.

I use Bostik All Purpose glue and small clamps for all my hair flower projects.

Thank you for looking!


16  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Drab To Fab - Revamped Spool Rooster on: July 17, 2009 08:51:59 AM
I finished this very easy revamping project today.

I remember this wooden rooster from when I was a kid and it put
a smile on my face when I found it at a flea market in Sweden for
only 5 Kr. (0,40/$0,60/0,45)

As you can see it was in a bit of a state but I knew that a little
black spray paint and a piece of ribbon would to the trick.
Yes, that's all!
Revamping projects doesn't have to be expensive or even complicated.

The result:

17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Girls Dress Revamped Into a Summery 1950's Style Skirt on: April 30, 2009 12:57:31 PM
I just finished revamping this dress into a skirt.
I found this summery girls dress (it's for a 6 year old) at a car boot sale last
Sunday for only 20 pence (that's like 30 cent in American currency) and I knew
right away that I could revamp it into a skirt since I'm quite petite.
It took me about 1 hour and I'm relatively pleased with the result.
This skirt will look perfect with a red gingham top.

Sorry about the awfully dull pictures, there's more cute details, like frills, than
my crappy camera will tell...

THE RESULT:

This is one of my new hair flowers that I've made lately.
I used a Tiger Lily (fake, of course) a sleepie clip and Bostik All Purpose glue.
