1  Re: (FULL TUTORIAL ADDED!) My version of a $385 bracelet! :) chain and thread. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Digit4lPyro on: August 19, 2010 08:18:09 PM
Thanks for the tutorial!  The Disney link gave me an idea. Cheesy

I used an old Disney chain bracelet that I had for a while now.  Thing is, it's pretty old and missing a few of the Disney character charms.  So yay! idea!

Problem is though, I can't braid for the life of me.  Like seriously... I can speak 3 languages fluently, program a computer and write various code yet I can't do a simple braid.

But, after looking at it for a bit, the chain looked really similar to a chain stitch in crochet and the braiding technique looked identical to single crochet.  So armed with a size E hook and 6 strands of embroidery thread, I came up with this:

Can't wait to wear it tomorrow. Cheesy

This is my first time reconstructing clothing.  Gotta admit, it was pretty fun. Cheesy


Started out with an old, huge sweater:

Sliced, diced:

Sewed together, added a button et voila~!  A cute shrug.

3  Recycled Crocheted Market Bag in Crochet: Completed Projects by Digit4lPyro on: December 29, 2009 06:02:04 PM
Hi everyone~!  

I read an article online about making fabric strips from plastic grocery bags (can't remember if it was on here or elsewhere though).  Anyways, thought I would try it out.

Kinda neat.  The only downside is it is a bit weak when it comes to carrying heavier items but at least it works out for lighter shopping sprees.   Grin
