3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jean Skirt w/ tute on: June 15, 2010 01:42:15 PM
Okay, well this is my first topic haha so bear with me. I just made a new jean skirt for my back-to-school wardrobe. I reconstructed it out of a pair of my mom's old stretch jeans.
This is what it looks like:

Sorry about my hands, I had to take the pic with the webcam and it shoots fast.

Basically what I did was I cut off the first foot of each leg of the jeans, then used a seamripper and made them into two large panels. Then I measured my waist and hips and cut it down to size, then sewed the panels together. The part of the jeans that I cut that was already hemmed at the bottom went on the bottom, and the other edge I used a zigzag stitch to finish. And, since they were stretch jeans, I didn't need any troublesome zippers and whatnot. Voila!

Oh, and both panels were stitched wierd-I zigzagged down both seams, and then used a running stitch on the inside of the first stitch  to secure it and it's holding up great!

oh, well, I tried it, but I tried using a rectangle and wore it to show my mom and discovered that it needs to be a square or the sides are too high. Never mind, of course, that mom was having a bad day and I told her i was trying to get helpful hints and not criticism and beratings. But she liked it when I fixed it, and it is kind of a drapey pencil skirt and my stepmom says it looks like Tinker Bell's skirt, and it's all thanks to you!! THANK YOU!!! I made three of these, and I used contrasting fabrics for the waistband and the skirt, and it looked good, but not as good as the pink stripey stuff you used. Where'd you get it? Sorry about the rapid-fire questions I 'll be back Grin
7  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: >>I Made Ballet Flats<< now with tutorial >>UPDATES<< on: May 25, 2009 11:43:54 AM
I LOVE YOU!!! you're my new best friend! I love ballet flats, and seriously, at every Payless in Arizona there are nose marks on the windows from me staring wide-eyed at all the funky ballet flats. I LOVE them!!! I tried these, and it works so well! I added a loop at the back of the heel and threaded ribbon through it and wrapped it around my ankles, and my little sister asked me to make a pair for her ballet recital! I feel so blessed! Thank you so much! I hope you don't mind if I bookmark it, I loove the tute and it's really clear to me. I will try to post a pic of the ones I added ribbon to ,they look awesome and it's all thanks to you!!! Yay!!

Thank you!!!

I love this! I did a similar project, but I ended up having to superglue the ribbons to get them to stay on and ended up throwing them away about a month ago. Yours are great though, where'd you get all the pretty ribbons? I love the houndstooth, it's my fave print. LOVE the project!!
9  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / My first crocheting project(that I didn't get bored with) on: March 15, 2009 03:20:11 PM
I learned how to crochet about two years ago and I pretty much got bored after a couple rows. I mean, really, where's the fun in sitting there and row after row just making it longer? I needed something that was quick, easy and would keep me hooked. So I went out to Michaels and got a book. THE book, Chicks With Sticks: Guide to Crochet. And believe me- this knocked my socks off.
They have this thing called Purple Haze fingerless gloves, and I got interested. I didn't do it the way the book says so-I just chained 30, looped back and turned into a tube. I single crocheted four rows, and on the fourth row I skipped five stiches and continued going. In the fifth row, I did the same, then snipped and tied off the ends in the skipped stitches for the thumb holes. I crocheted another, um,thirteen rows down and let it taper so that it fit snugly. I tied off the ends and voila! I had a glove. I made another one and now I can't stop making them.
Anybody want a pair of fingerless rainbow gloves?  Grin
