21  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 45 ENTRIES / sweatpants to skinny "jeans" on: December 05, 2009 07:33:35 AM
Hello craftsters! I took some thrift store sweatpants and turned them into some sort of skinny jeans. the before looked like this:
I made them tighter and added a fly and some back pockets. The fly was tricky, because I've never done one before, and the pants were already made, so I basically had to figure out how to put a zipper in without it showing. I left the elastic waistband in because all my real jeans have really bigs waists (big enough that belts don't even help that much). [EDIT(I forgot to mention...)]These were made with these http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=231826.0 in the back of my mind.
so here they are:

Back pocket:

The fly. It looks a bit weird from this angle, and the stitches sort of half-disappeared into the fabric.

Sort of side view:

and the bottom:

Thank you for looking!

24  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle on: November 01, 2009 11:12:25 AM
Happy Halloween everyone! Here is the costume I made this year. I went as Donatello, the nerdiest of the ninja turtles. It was a hit with my friend's aunt, apparently. I used an old brown sheet and a t-shirt from a summer camp I did at my town's university.

This was a controversial matter among my friends. We decided that since a ninja turtle has ninja powers, it would be able to get itself flipped over if it happened to be stuck on its back. But here's a pic of me stuck on my back anyway.

This is a pic of my shell.

And, here's my rock hard six pack I've been working on...

So cute! I love the buttons! This may be a stupid question, but when you said someone bought your skirt off your body, does that literally mean that? If it does, what did you wear instead? thanks!

I love it! I've been wanting some pikachu clothes for a while, and I might just have to make something like this. Thanks!

Thanks! I tried my best to make the chains all the same length, but some ended up longer than the others. It's pretty loose around my neck, but that's just because of how long I made the chains.

Thanks! The boucle would probably go really well with this, because it's mostly just chains. I would love to see it if you end up making one
