21  big button up shirt-->fitted halter in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katherine83 on: March 17, 2005 08:17:08 PM
this was an old shirt from my bf...he lost some weight and it didn't fit him anymore. i asked if i could have it and i turned it into a halter for summer! this project took awhile cause i spent alot of time trying and retrying on the shirt to make sure it fit well. i would love to post a tutorial, but honestly, i dunno if i could explain what i did! i just made it up as i went along. anywho, i'm pretty happy with the way it turned out!

22  Re: more rag bags, I love that pattern! in Knitting: Completed Projects by katherine83 on: March 07, 2005 11:29:42 AM
this pattern is so easy and when you're finished you get a really cute bag, like this one i made:

the flower pin was given to me by my sister for xmas (i did not make it, but is looks cute with bag). when i bought this yarn i didn't realize just how pink it was. you really have to be in a good mood to carry this bag around!  Wink

24  pink skirt w/ flower decoration in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by katherine83 on: February 09, 2005 12:03:45 AM
whew, i was on such a crafting roll today... i finished up a couple of items that were sitting by my sewing machine just waiting to be finished and this is one of them. it is a pink skirt with an elastic waistband and a gathered bit at the hem. the skirt still looked plain so i added a little flower applique above the gather. the pink fabric was really see-through so the skirt is lined with white/cream fabric.

25  vintage sundress --> skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katherine83 on: February 08, 2005 11:48:02 PM
hi all, a couple of years ago i bought a really cute vintage sundress...unfortunately i never wore it. so i cut off the skirt part of the dress and added some blue ribbon to the waist to create a skirt. i can't wait for the weather to get warmer so i can wear it out!

26  Cargo pants-->cute bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katherine83 on: February 08, 2005 11:42:43 PM
so, my guy friend had a drunken misshap one night and got a rip in the knee of his cargo pants. he didn't like the way the pants looked with the tear so i, being the friend who knows how to sew, offered to make the pants into shorts. as "payment" he let me keep the extra fabric from the legs of the pants that had the cargo pocket. oooooh, the possibilities! i whipped up this cute little bag in a couple of hours. the cargo pockets work really well as extra storage for stuff. i used some pink ribbon for the strap to make the bag a little more girly. i may just have to add a flower pin for a more decorative touch...




ps. olive/army green and pink are an awesome colour combination...not convinced? check out: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14781.0 really cute!

27  Re: Brown Cord Purse w/ Button Strap in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by katherine83 on: January 27, 2005 03:32:24 PM
okay, sorry everyone, this has taken awhile to post this... here is the pattern i used for the bag, with dimensions...

i basically used the directions from this tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=14604.0. its this constructed the same way as the round bag, except the straps were too short so i used a button to keep them together... hope this is okay, feel free to ask if something isn't clearly explained Cheesy

28  felt hair flower in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by katherine83 on: January 25, 2005 11:06:00 AM
so, I accidently felted a favorite sweater, before I even knew how felt was made, and that washing instructions on wool sweaters should not be compromised! I couldn't wear the sweater anymore (as it had shrunk considerably) so I decided to wash it again to make sure it was really and truely felted. now what to do? ah, make felt flowers to adorn the hair! it's easy, cut out petal shapes, sew along the edges to make them curly and wavey, sew together in flower-type shape, add button (or any other bauble) to the middle, add hair clip or pin using a hot glue gun, and finally, dress up those locks with a new hair decoration!

29  Sewing Machine Cover with Cherries! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by katherine83 on: January 18, 2005 03:00:15 PM
If anyone has read any of my other posts you can tell I like to make cozies/covers for things! For the longest time I was using a plastic bag with a hole in the bottom for the handle of the machine. Can you believe it? I sew and I was using a plastic bag! So, here is my sewing machine cover, complete with a cherry applique to make it pretty!

30  Brown Cord Purse w/ Button Strap in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by katherine83 on: January 18, 2005 02:50:40 PM
This bag was a total mistake...it was suppose to have a zipper and the straps were suppose to tie. But I ended up messing up the zipper, so I made it a button closure instead. The straps were too short to tie them, so I used a button and working button-hole to attach them. I used interfacing on the cord fabric to make it stiff and used "jordy corners" to create the bottom of the bag. Overall I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out, even though with all the mistakes it took all afternoon to make! Tongue
