11  Amazingly cool first bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by MissTinkerBum on: December 30, 2008 09:09:12 AM
I was lucky enough to have an internship at our local theatre. There I learned a whole lot of new things, and they helped me sew a very nifty bag. I was allowed to go find fabric in their huge fabric room and it was like heaven!
Anyway, I used Artsy-Crafty Babe's pattern (-> http://artsycraftybabe.typepad.com/artsycrafty_babe/2007/06/pleated_tote_pa.html ) and the most amazing fabric I've ever seen!

Close up of fabric and the lining.

A better picture of the whole bag

The inside. Not very clear. I made an inside pocket out of the lining. And added a press button.

I still have some of the fabric left (they let me keep it =D!) and I think it'd look super as a beret  Grin

12  Old ugly granny's turtleneck into.. oops, it was a cashmere turtleneck !!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by MissTinkerBum on: May 06, 2008 01:19:52 AM
My gran gave me a load of too big tops this weekend and told me to not under any circumstances cut them up. So what do I do? Cut them up =)

She gave me this not very good looking turtleneck

And I turned it into this good looking top

Up close

I actually wanted to make a boob tube kind of top, but I messed up while cutting it.
While I was sewing it all together I noticed the tag inside and uh oh, 50% cashmere and 50% silk. She'll have my head if she ever finds out, so shhh  Wink

13  Weeeee, summer clothes! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MissTinkerBum on: April 17, 2008 11:30:58 AM
Summer's nearly there (hard to believe when it's still snowing in parts of Germany...) and therefore clothes are needed!
I am a skirt freak, so I made another skirt to add to the collection. My mom is jealous. Haa  Cool

Close up of the fab

The metre of fabric only cost me 2,50 and I mean, can you get any cheaper?

I also made a summer top. The neckline is low, really low, but a top underneath will do.

And both together:

14  Shirr me some love in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MissTinkerBum on: April 05, 2008 03:33:35 AM
I saw this in some mag and was all =O I really really wanted the top -> (My phone camera doesn't like taking photos of magazines..)
So I cut out two squares from some very sweet fabric, sewed them together and shirred the top and bottom. Out came this:

My dress form feels naked without underwear...

I also added straps that you tie

Here you can see the cute fabric somewhat. It's white with near to invisible little brown flowers all over.
I also wanted to make the skirt part of the original dress, but I couldn't find the right fabric to go with the top.
So, what do you say/think?

15  Cute pattern top in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by MissTinkerBum on: March 26, 2008 01:41:23 PM
I finally got my sewing machine fixed, and made this top. I got the pattern from a Burda magazine (But you could probably draw up one yourself, it's pretty simple)

The neckline is way too low, so I'll probably do what I always do when the neckline is too low and just wear another top underneath.

The close up of the fabric, which is way cute.
I made a load of sewing mistakes while making this, but I was way too lazy to fix it up. I'm not sure yet if I'll actually wear it, or turn it into a cute bag. We'll see

16  Ipod (or not ipod) cookie monster cozy in Crochet: Completed Projects by MissTinkerBum on: March 12, 2008 01:31:09 PM
So, I saw this -> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181257.0 and neeeeded to make it since my mp3 player just got back from being repaired.
I only had white and purple wool lying around although I wanted it to look just like cold.dinner's cozy. But I never actually do get things the way I want them. =( But this turned out really good and I'm happy =D
It looks a lot like the cookie monster, and I love it =D

(Sorry about the crappy phone photo, it was getting dark and clever phone doesn't have flash)
What do you think? Should I add arms like cold.dinner's cozy had?
