91  Huge Thrift Store Pants to Crazy Fall Skirt (really image heavy!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: June 08, 2005 12:43:47 PM
Okay, here are three thrift store finds, none of which fit me (nor would I want them to):

Here's what they looked like when I was done:

I'm pretty sure I'm going to make a matching purse with this on it:

I did this all with VERY minimal sewing skills (I've never sewn clothes before; I've barely sewn at all) so I'm pretty confident that anyone could do it. Hope you like!

92  Michael Jackson messenger bag?! (pictures) in Stitch And BOTCH by BananaAmbush on: June 08, 2005 11:53:57 AM
      All right, folks, this is a very sad tale. I bought some white denim and sewed it up into a messenger bag. Surprisingly, (VERY surprisingly, considering my sewing skill), the sewing went without a hitch and I had a great bag to start working on. I was making it My Chemical Romance-themed; I was going to have lyrics, stencils, buttons, etc. all over it, but instead of the emo-ish colors and themes that unfortunately usually accompany MCR, I wanted it to be bright and colorful. Well, here's how it turned out:

       The stencil is of Gerard Way, the singer. Unfortunately, I got so many people asking me if it was Michael Jackson that I was traumatized into trying to fix his nose. A combination of whiteout, sharpies, and paint made him even more skeletal and Michael-looking.

That, plus, with my filthy school, two days of carrying it around got the following lovely stains:

93  Duct Tape Iris in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: June 03, 2005 11:01:55 PM
Yup, that's almost completely duct tape. There's a coat hanger wire running through the stem and stamen to give support, but otherwise it's all tape.

Hope you like it!

OK, here are the promised pictures of what I got from natashafatale:

Amazing Ravenclaw wristwarmers on my clawlike digits:

A matching amazing Ravenclaw purse with a moon on the bottom (Lupin!)

Two diaries, one with Sirius and one with a moon (Lupin again):

And a Quidditch Through the Ages book (I figure you know what that looks like.) THANK YOU!!! I absolutely adore my stuff. I haven't heard anything from booglass, so I hope my things have reached her safe and sound.

95  Re: Spiky/Furry Neon Duct Tape Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: April 06, 2005 10:25:12 AM
       I'll try to explain how to do it, but tell me if I make it too confusing: first, make the base of the purse (I did the whole base with green tape). If you don't know how to make sheets of duct tape, go to http://www.3m.com/intl/CA/english/centres/home_leisure/duct_tape/dt_wallet.html and read the first 3 steps. When you're done, the purse should be the shape you want, just without spikes. To put the spikes on, make a sheet of duct tape that is only one strip long and cut spikes from it. Make a lot of spikes from each of your colors. Then, rip a strip of tape that is as long as your purse is wide. Arrange your spikes on the strip like this:

Keep making these strips and add them to the purse going from the bottom up. This is REALLY important. If one spot looks too black or too green, don't be afraid to yank some spikes out and replace with the other color. I hope that helps! Just tell me if you need something clarified.

96  Spiky/Furry Neon Duct Tape Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: April 04, 2005 12:30:53 PM
This was made from neon green and black duct tape; the texture is really odd, but cool. I finished it in an hour, triumphant with a scissors battle scar on my finger.

The inside:

97  Moulin Rouge Sharpie Pants: Warning! Very Image Heavy! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: April 03, 2005 04:27:09 PM
These are just some white jeans that I Moulin-Rougified with sharpies. I can't really tell you how long they took to make; I sort of worked on them for a day, left them for a week, worked on them, etc. I have put them in the wash (after ironing to heat set-them) and they came out faded, but almost as good as new. I'm sorry about both the quality and quantity of pictures; I had to take a lot because my crappy camera can't pick up detail.

I hope you like them!

98  Change Purse - Literally in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by BananaAmbush on: March 27, 2005 11:58:15 AM
This is my first actual post! I hope you guys like it. I made this purse by drilling holes in pennies (and foreign coins for the handle) and threading them together with fishing line and embroidery floss. The pennies aren't attached to the lining; they are just hanging over it. When you have it on your arm it hangs to just above your waist. Sorry about the poor quality pictures!
