So what do you get when you mix a boring, faded, old hoodie and an old, faded, yet still too cool to throw out shirt? A brand new and way cool hoodie!

2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Pirate flag on: May 07, 2005 12:59:57 PM
So my brother's eighth grade play is this year and they asked me for a little help. It's called The Lady Pirates of Captain Bree (I know, amazing) and what I need the most specific help with is they need a pirate flag. I was going to let them borrow mine but then I found out they needed a way to hoist it up and have it look like it was blowing in the wind. This would involve some sort of hole and they aren't putting holes in my precious flag!

So how could I make a flag which will lay down as it's raised up the flag pole but then raises up to look like it's blowing in the wind? I've tried a few things but I really need some crafty brains besides mine to get this working.
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / CD Wallet on: April 25, 2005 09:39:02 AM
I figured this would probably go here but I'm not sure cause it IS a wallet. Well anyways I wanted a new way to carry my burned cds cause truth is my old one was just...not cool. I'm proud to say that this is VERY cute and cool!





It's just felt and embroidery cause my great aunt gave me this GIANT thing of embroidery thread.
4  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / sockmonkey goodness! on: April 24, 2005 11:45:41 AM
I really really really wanted a sock monkey so this is what I made yesterday:



I even got my brother in on it and he made a mini one from some really old kid socks:



His isn't quite done, he's planning on giving him Einstein hair.
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pirate Pillow! on: April 24, 2005 11:39:00 AM
So I had this leftover terry cloth in red and white stripes from when I made pirate pants and this really comfy yet ugly pillow (pink stripes and pink is a big no no for me). So I pretty much made a cover for it and covered ugly stripes with more ugly stripes.

Sorry if this doesn't go here, I was a little confused.



It's just part of my master plan of redecorating my bedroom pirate style. Next I'm making a cover for my comforter in black w/a giant skull and crossbones.

Comments appreciated!
6  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pirate Purse! on: April 24, 2005 11:32:58 AM
My first posted project! I used the Jordy tute (who doesn't) and just kinda went with it. I think it's my most successfut purse ever.



I actually used canvas in between (I'm lucky, random canvas scraps from when my mom streches her canvases) and this amazing gold pinstripe fabric I found for  $3 a yard which I'm gonna get more of and make a circle skirt. My skull is a little messed up cause his chin is too long but I don't really care.

Comments appreciated!
