21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Paper Clip Ring - super snazzy....holla! on: December 15, 2008 08:17:00 AM
I made this paper clip ring this morning!  Yah!  I have never made anything like this before.  In fact I don't really do jewelry because I kind of suck at it.  I am too ADD to make jewelry because of all the options/choices...I get overwhelmed!  Anyhow, I love how it turned out. I need to make the next one slightly larger though because I have really small fingers and it only goes all the way down on my pinky finger.  Plus it would be easier if I could do this with some of those jewelry needle-nose pliers instead of the stupid giant, bulky ones I was using.  Anyhow...here it is!


22  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Big sweater turned into a toddler sweater!! on: November 05, 2008 06:40:46 AM

I finished my first sweater recon! The original was a Tommy Hilfiger sweater of my sister's; it was about a size 7 juniors. Here's was it looked like:

I only had one issue and I plan to correct that for future sweaters. What I screwed up was the neck. The problem was that when I originally cut the neck, it seemed to small of an opening to go over my son's head, so I made it bigger. However, I failed to take into account that when I re-attached the blue neck trim piece that there would be some stretching as a result of sewing the pieces together. So my hole that I recut for my son's head got HUGE once I sewed on the trim. It annoys the heck out of me but it is still a cute and functioning sweater for this fall and winter season. I guess I know for next time to make the neck hole smaller! Well you can see from the photo that it still turned out cute so I still am going to pat myself on the back for my first sweater recon!
 
23  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Argh! A pirate's life for me! on: November 02, 2008 03:42:15 AM
I was poor this year (aren't we all it seems!) and wanted to make a costume for my toddler son that wouldn't cost me anything.  I did end up having to pay a few bucks for accessories and for the vinyl (a.k.a. my "faux leather") for the boot covers and the "belt".  I did not use a pattern.  Instead I made my own from clothing of his that fits him now.  I was inspired by a pirate costume online.  Here is the inspiration picture:

I decided on a pirate because I knew my son would know what it was and I already had everything for it in my scrap fabric pile!  Yeah!  Here are two pictures of the final product:
