1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Lacrosse Shirt Recon on: October 15, 2005 02:58:04 PM
On a visit to a university this summer we stopped in on the bookstore, which was having a clearance sale.  I'd been looking for a lacrosse shirt and found one, even though it was a few sizes too big.  Nothing a little bit of crafty mauling couldn't fix, right?  Grin  So here's the finished product:

(Note: I don't have any before or during pics, but just imagine an XL t-shirt...  *snipsnipsnip* *sewsewsew*  Yay!)









Thanks for looking Cheesy  I hope you like!  Please tell me what the shoelaces make you think of...I was going for a kind of look...Tongue
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Rather confused about starting altered book.. on: July 09, 2005 07:22:17 PM
I'm making an altered book...well going to start, but I am wondering if it matters what kind of book you use.  Well, as in the paper in it.  Should you try and see if the paper is archivally safe?  Is that really an option you have?  I'm not really even sure that the binders would use acid-free paper since they're hoping people won't turn their books into art... Grin

Ok maybe I'm too paranoid about this, but I've been wondering for a while and just can't find an answer.  Huh
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My first self-sewn dress! on: July 05, 2005 10:52:39 AM
Well I decided to make my dress for my dad's wedding.  So I went to JoAnn's and found some pretty fabric and then got started.  I didn't use a pre-made pattern, so the process was a bit...interesting...  hehe  This would include taping tissue paper to my bra to make my own pattern lol  Ok anyways...here it is! 

front:

That taping really paid off!  It fits!  Grin

back:


Close up:

Here is the pretty flowers that are all over the dress!  I love hibiscus flowers!

So that is my dress and i'm very proud of it!  What do you think?  Smiley
