41  Sack Dress... in a good way. in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: August 23, 2008 03:00:34 PM
I saw a post for a pillowcase dress for a little girl, and I really wanted one. But... I'm a little too big for a pillowcase! So I made a sack dress. It ended up with drawstring armpits because I cut wholes for the armpits than ended up too big and looking like Vs. So I twisted the Vs to the front and back and I like it a lot better, though now I have drawstring armpits and a seam in front and back.




Attitude shot!


It was sincerely one of the easiest things I've ever made, took me like two hours.

Cheesy title aside, we love this dress! We found it at our thrift store and saw some serious potential.

My sister, after the recon, in my gold cowboy boots:




Before, with shoulder pads to the MAX!!!

43  Mallard Missy Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: August 13, 2008 09:46:31 PM
I call it the Mallard Missy Necklace. I took some great duck ribbon and sewed it between two d-rings then added some draped chain. I wish I had more great ribbon and vintage d-rings to make more!





Whatcha think?

44  Embroidered Leaf Pillows in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: August 13, 2008 01:56:56 PM
I LOVE these pillows. If the craft gods smile on me, they might be in a craft book!!! And if that doesn't merit a craftster post, what does?

45  Romeo and Juliet Necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: August 11, 2008 09:18:27 PM
I found this great glass bottle charm, and I love notes in little bottles, like secret messages. So I added some silver charms and chains, and made a Romeo and Juliet necklace. The scroll says "O true apothecary, thy drugs are quick. Thus, with a kiss, I die" and I added red beads to be like poison. I really love it! I even sort of learned calligraphy (okay I learned to use a calligraphy pen and ink) to do it.

46  Birdcage Jewelry Holder with Wire in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: August 10, 2008 02:41:38 PM
I got this fantastic wicker birdcage at a yard sale yesterday for fifty cents, with the intention of hanging my earrings on it. But they I thought, why not hang all my jewelry on it? So I whipped out the wire and went to work! I used little pieces of thick wire, and twisted them to make places to hang rings, necklaces, and post earrings. Each wire bit has a sort of swirl on each end that wraps around the wicker and keeps it in place. The necklaces hang in the middle of the cage, although I don't have many necklaces that are short enough for it. It's a bit ugly bare, but I love it with all my jewelry on it! It's for my new dorm room Smiley

The full effect:

turns out it's kinda hard to take all the posts out, so I gave up. Sorry.

Ring holders:


I really love it!! Sorry I missed a picture of how the necklaces are up, it's really the same concept.

47  Lord of the Rings Hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: August 06, 2008 05:42:18 PM
My first hoodie! I used an old Lord of the Rings shirt that was already my size but never looked good on me, an old kids shirt that I stole the sleeves from, and some spare grey and black fabric for the hood. The hood lining is black, you can't really see it in the photos. It took me so long to figure out how to sew the hood right! But now I'm addicted, I'm already making another one. Cheesy

48  Leafy Pillows with Embroidery in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: July 29, 2008 06:15:39 PM
I made these from my extra curtain fabric.. since I bought the curtains knowing they would be way to long (because I wanted the extra fabric haha) I don't really consider this a recon. I made two! And I embroidered over two of the leaves.

49  Forgotten Pieces Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: July 28, 2008 02:15:12 PM
I made this bracelet out of some old metal bits I had lying around.. watch parts, gears, a buckle, some pins. I wanted an old-timey feel.

50  Found object rings (lots pics!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: July 22, 2008 11:24:43 AM
I love big junky rings. The bases for all of these are buttons and I glued some cool junk on them.








They're all at least an inch across. Big and bold, that's the only way to do it!
