241  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / some wristwarmers and a beret on: June 03, 2008 05:54:03 PM
i have trouble following patterns, so i make everything up. which means my stuff is kind of messy, but always unique. anyway, here are some of my favorite projects.

wristwarmers made with manos del uruguay yarn. really easy, really cute, and i wear them almost everyday so they are looking a little worn-out in this picture:

and this beret i made two days ago, wore it to one party, and now i have several orders for more of them!:



242  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / decoupaged shoes on: June 03, 2008 05:40:57 PM
i made these shoes one day with a friend, and they looked amazing, so i wore them out that night. i got lots of compliments, but by the end of the night they were cracked and parts of the comics had fallen off. oh well. i think i will just redo the bits that cracked and hope it doesn't happen again. does anyone have any suggestions for hot to keep them from cracking, or is that just inevitable.

in the process of making them (note the beer bottles. ah yes, crafting and boozing):


finished product:

243  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ugly vest into cute skirt, ugly sweater into cute skirt on: June 03, 2008 05:31:58 PM
this will be my first post, so i'm not entirely sure if the photos will work out or not. i unfortunately forgot to take any before pictures of the ugly clothes before i changed them. i got an amazingly ugly huge vest at the thrift store, because it only cost 25 cents and i liked the fabric. i turned it into a very simple skirt which does not even have a zipper. i couldn't get into it so i gave it to my friend, who is modeling it in the pictures:



and the other skirt i made out of a sweater and ugly shirt. i made the bottom of the sweater into the skirt's waist band, and then took material from the sleeves and added it to the sides so that the skirt wouldn't be too fitted around my hips. unfortunately it still was, so i haven't worn the skirt out yet. the flowers i took from some enormous ugly shirt and i sewed them on the inside of the skirt, then cut out the material on the front. i think it's cute, and with more adjusting can be awesome:



so let me know what you think of them! and if anyone has suggestions for making knit skirts not quite so form fitting, let me know!

244  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Re: Guess what. I made a (vintage) prom dress! on: June 03, 2008 12:00:44 PM
that's incredible! i'm jealous. i also had my prom on the san francisco bay, and went dressed up all 50's, but i didn't make the dress.
