1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty ugly fav slipper mending on: June 27, 2015 12:15:06 PM
Maybe this was a hopeless case, but since they were (are) my favorite slippers my grandma gave me, I gave them another chance. They sure didn't get prettier, but we all know: it''s what's inside that counts. In this case, that would be my feet  Grin
Before (as you can see, previous attempts at rescue have been made!):

Just cut out the soles and sewed on the inner sole:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / H&M skirt knockoff on: April 27, 2015 03:31:13 AM
Some time ago, I picked up a skirt on a yardsale, that I love to wear. So much that I decided to make another one. Might fit in reconstructed as well, because the inside is made from an old t-shirt. The elastic bands on the inside were from a yardsale as well. Outside is organic cotton, yay. Saved the world.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Butterfly Book on: March 21, 2015 02:26:34 PM
Yesterday, some pupils passed by on the schoolyard carrying loads of books to the trash. Of course, I stopped them and ended up with loads of books in the art store room. Maybe 50-100, didn't count. I took some home to think of things I could make the students do and after a lot of browsing an pinteresting I ended up with this very girly happy version of a butterfly book. I might do one with bats, just to prove to myself I can do interesting, too.

Watercolored some pages and cut out butterflies, the golden wire was wrapped around yesterdays wine bottle. It was empty by the time the 1017 pages were folded. The students are going to get thinner books, otherwise it's gonna take weeks...

I folded the book to the shape of a butterfly, too.

I sure didn't understand why one would trash Dahl and Rilke. Those ended up in the bookshelf at home.

I did it! Thank you for the tips!

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Rescued Momma knit sweater on: March 01, 2015 09:59:52 AM
Finally managed to repair a beloved sweater my mom knit 30 years ago. The cuffs were worn out, so after a lot of asking around, i did the complete cuffs anew. I used old yarn as well as leftover yarn (I don't know why she kept it that long, but I'm very glad). Only problem is, leftover yarn is much brighter... Oh well. Can't have it all!

Glad you like it! Smiley
Yes, I strung them on some yarn and then glued them on, but they came off in some places. A layer of mod podge holds everything together. It' important to not glue on too many rows of seeds in the back, because it can't open anymore, This one doesn't open completely because of that Undecided

I'm de-stashing!!! I am so glad I did this cause the beads have been sitting in my stash since sixth grade. It was time for them to go and be seen.

Found this wonderful fish paper and made a desk litter bin from an instant coffee tin, the other one holds all the paper clips, sharpeners etc. that would otherwise get lost.

I think I made over 30 of these as christmas presents, but didn't have the energy to make a set for myself :-(
Old pillowcase and super old towel. Both were unraveling already, so they are nice and soft for the skin.

Christmas presents! The right one is made from wisteria seeds. Problem is, they are very cleverly constructed by nature to pop at some point to let the seed out... I'm exited to see how long they'll keep! One already popped of with a loud bang. Twigs should stay peaceful though!
