1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / new kicks on: April 20, 2010 05:27:13 PM
Well I was at Wal-Mart and somehow wandered over to the shoe department and they were getting rid of their older style "van-alikes" for $5!!! I couldn't pass up that bargain and I bought a pair for me and my sister with the intentions of painting them but with what we hadn't decided.  This is what we came up with.

For those of you that know who Motion City Soundtrack is (and those who don't  Smiley ) here are my sisters shoes and the first shoes I attempted to paint...

and these are mine. I have a bit of a Sailor Jerry obsession so a perfect fit Tongue

they don't look the best in this picture and I should have taken the pictures BEFORE we had both been wearing them for a while but I always forget!

Thanks for looking!
C&C appreciated
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / XL T-SHIRT--->CUTE TANK TOP on: August 09, 2009 09:28:13 PM
So this is my first reconstruction.  
I am a long time lurker on craftster and I had seen posts where people had forgotten to take before shots and I was like...how can you forget to take before shots?!?!

Well...let me tell you it's easy! I actually forgot to take a picture at all before I gave the girl her shirt lol

Luckily I have action shots though
On to the story...My best friends sister was going to her first Jonas Brothers concert.  I asked her if she wanted me to make her a shirt...I planned to just puffy paint her one but I got on a roll with scissors and a sewing machine  Cheesy

Anyway I started with an XL Mens shirt

and  a bolt of pink gingham fabric

started cutting and sewing and added two super cute extra large buttons and some spray paint (dont diss unless you try it!) and VOILA! A cute tank top.  

She had a meet and greet with honor society and they all commented on it : )
What do you think?
