1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirt recons! skirts, halter, and bikini! on: May 29, 2009 09:49:01 AM
I borrowed two t-shirt reconstruction books from my sister in law last week. I had so much fun that I ended up cutting up several of my husbands old t's and a few of mine  Roll Eyes I'm posting my favorites of the finished projects!

This skirt was a no sew! I used my husbands t's for this one. I liked the phrase. Grin


This skirt required sewing only one straight line. I like it for a bathing suit cover.


The halter was a no sew as well.


Last but not least! The bikini! The top was no sew but the bottoms were not. Both were simple! However, since it's t-shirt fabric I will only be wearing this at home. Grin


Hope you like them! Let me know what you think!  Grin
2  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / A dress for my gal! on: May 28, 2009 06:22:12 PM

I really wanted to make my 3yr. old daughter a summer dress. So I made a pattern, went through my fabrics and came up with this! I put a pleat in the front...the bottom didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted it to, but it fits and she loves that mom made her a dress! Smiley

3  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Dog harness and vest from old pants! on: May 28, 2009 02:34:31 PM
My little guy Mateo needed a harness and I thought why buy one when I can make one  Smiley So for the fabric I went into a box I have of clothes to be donated! I found an pair of lime green cord pants my daughter wore as a baby. I make the harness so I could slip it over his head comfortably. Next I needed some sort of ring so I found an old key ring and slipped it on!   Roll Eyes It works and I think he looks adorable. I also made him a "I'm a tough guy vest" this made out of my old pants! Hope you like! Comments welcome!!!





This is the pattern I used:

5  COOKING / Dessert / Fondant 4th of July cake on: May 28, 2009 01:51:07 PM
This is my first post so I hope I am doing this right  Smiley I made this cake last year on the 4th of July! I didn't roll the fondant out thin enough (rookie mistake Wink) I added clear vanilla to the fondant to improve it's taste. This was my first attempt at a tier cake. I used straws to hold the layers in place. All in all it tasted good and it was fun to look at Smiley
