Throw pillows?  Just stuff them and sew up the ends.

My 15 y/o daughter would LOVE LOVE LOVE these, especially the 11th Doctor.  She hopes to marry Matt Smith one day.  Cheesy  
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can someone tell me if my RECON idea will work? on: June 22, 2012 08:34:13 AM
I have very little sewing experience, but I love the idea of reconstructing clothes...I always have, but I get these ideas, and I'm just not sure if it will work, so I chicken out.

Here's what I'm wanting to try, I've seen several people have reconned tees to add a strip of fabric along the sides, but I want to cut a T-shirt up both sides and sew a wedge shape of fabric onto each side to make it an A-line (and to make it bigger around the stomach area).  Will this work?  I keep trying to imagine how it will look, and I have this horrible image that it will be awful, and I will have ruined 2 perfectly wearable shirts to try it.

Has someone tried this?  Can you share pics?  Tuts?

No, I haven't tried either. I'll check into it, but please keep the ideas coming.  I watch my niece's 3 little ones quite a bit, so kids' craft ideas are welcome too.  I'd prefer something that can be used as gifts or sold at craft fairs.

My MIL gave me a huge tub of yarn, and I'm tired of making scarves.  That's all I really know how to knit, and I'm not a fan of crocheting.  What are some other crafts I can make with yarn?  I've tried doing a search here, but it always leads me to the knitting or crocheting forums.

I have more fabric left from the original shirt.  How do you think it would look with a ruffle at the bottom to give it some length?  I'm not sure how that will look, but as much as I love it, I still haven't worn it because it's shorter than I normally wear.  Any other suggestions to lengthen it?  I may just go find a longer black t-shirt and start all over. Undecided

Awesome! I wish I had the body to rock a corset, but alas, I do not.  Embarrassed

What a great idea!  Love it, and it looks so easy (exactly what I need)!

I know this is old, but I'm new here and trying to get inspired.  I love this idea and your model is a doll!!!!!
