Another poster put up some pictures of t-shirt recons she's done, and directed me to a video on YouTube about how to do a slash-n-weave shirt which I think looks super cool. Here's the link to the vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rofK0-cgA_k

...and here's my first attempt. Sorry about the awkward angle, it's hard trying to take a picture of your back haha.



The t-shirt I used was made of a thicker cotton so it didn't stretch as easily, but I think it turned out okay. I'm pretty sure I made a mistake or two somewhere down the line but overall I love the effect, and I plan on going to the thrift store to pick up some more tees to attack  Tongue

Everythings really cute. Could you maybe do a tute for the slash-and-weave dress? Or at least explain how you did it haha it looks so neat!

Here's how I learned:

Thanks for all the kind comments guys Smiley

These are amazing...just one less disposable thing in my bathroom.  Great Idea.  Do you just moisten them with water or do you use some sort of makeup removing solution on them?

I use them to apply my toner at night, they're great at getting any excess makeup off!
7  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Reusable Makeup Remover Pads! on: May 12, 2010 09:05:51 AM
So this isn't really bath, or beauty... or even clothing haha so I didn't know quite where to post it but it's cosmetic-related so here I am! I stumbled across a blog post the other day when I was searching for some DIY projects and it talked about creating your own reusable makeup pads, which I think is an awesome idea because I hate using disposable products all the time, and I'm really trying to be more environmentally friendly. The blogger was talking about using some material I've never even heard of, so I thought flannel would work just as well.

All I did was cut up an old pair of flannel PJs into squares and sewed two squares together to make one pad. I used one last night and it worked just as well as those cotton pads you can buy at the drugstore! The edges aren't exactly even but who cares, they're just going on my face  Tongue



Thanks for looking!  Smiley
8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My "Free Spirit" Dress! on: May 12, 2010 08:56:04 AM
So I was lurking Craftster last week and came across this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339575.0 which inspired me to make my own little dress. I bought this pillow case made for a body pillow in the summer, and unfortunately when I got home and opened the package, it wasn't the colour I thought it was... and it was HUGE. It was the perfect amount of fabric to create a summer dress though, so here she is:



...and close-up of detail / boob shot haha. The straps are braided fabric, and they probably took the longest to do.



I've dubbed it my "free spirit" dress 'cause I feel like a hippie when I'm wearing it haha.

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Gah, everything you made is so cute! I looove the first dress, lace is one of my faves. Maybe a tute for that one? Smiley
