1  Christmas gift for my BFF in Needlework: Completed Projects by fleagirl on: January 29, 2013 09:37:20 AM
We live in the Bay Area and are those annoying oldsters who say that when we went to Burning Man in the '90s it was [cooler, smaller, cheaper, whatever-er], while seekritly wishing we had the time and energy to do it again. The sentiment expressed is something of an inside joke with us (its meaning goes beyond what it seems to say on the surface :).



I used the stitchpoint.com text generator for the text, and designed the mini-man border myself.

This was my first cross-stitch project in a loooong time, and now I want something more ambitious, but can't decide how big and detailed I can go without losing interest before I finish. A favorite album cover or work of art, maybe...

3  the ever-popular pants-to-skirt recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fleagirl on: May 09, 2005 01:00:50 PM
my first reconstruction, and my second clothing sewing project. i am very proud of myself, especially if i claim the uneven seams and weird pleaty ruffle at the bottom was a conscious choice for a deconstructed, post-apocalypse, sewn-during-an-earthquake look.




old army green cargo pants that were too short, but not short enough to look ok, with a busy flowers-and-butterflies-and-gold thread fabric for the inserts and pleats.

i used a couple tutorials linked to from this site -- one for jeans-to-skirt, which i modified* to account for the lack of yoke on my pants, and another for adding pleats to a jeans-to-skirt project.

i cursed a lot while making it, but it was fun.

*by "modified" i mean i realized as i was cutting that there was no yoke.
