1191  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: A couple of jackets (Image Heavy) on: July 03, 2005 03:38:11 PM
WOW! I am really impressed! They look SO good!
1192  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Daddy's old shirt=My new shirt and clutch...Now w/ mini-tute on: July 03, 2005 03:19:36 PM
**9/16/05**I got a PM to put the pics back up last Friday and I said I would. I've been busy this week w/ Senior English and not feeling good the past few days but I will get the pics up tomorrow. I was going to do them today but fell asleep instead  Undecided. I'm sorry that it's taking me so long but I promise, they will be up tomorrow!**

This was a shirt of my dad's (XL). I bleached it to the light green and cut it down to fit me. I had enough to make a clutch so I did. I forgot to put both sides of the clutch on here so I'll just tell you:the side that is on here has one big star and the other side has two smaller sides. This was my first zipper insertion and I made up my own way to do it...but I think it's going to stay in OK. Wink

*The pics of the actual shirt aren't up b/c I deleted them and didn't want to take them again but the tutorial is here.*

I have been buying and making a lot of green things lately. The clutch is a little big,but that makes it perfect.....it's a clutch that I can fit my iPod in!  Wink

EDIT:Here is a mini-tute on how to make a shirt smaller and the sleeves will look fine. Please excuse the hideous color of the big shirt...it was a dark green that I bleached (w/ white intentions) but now I have to dye it.

1.Lay the shirt down.

2.Pick a shirt that fits you well and lay it on top of the other one. Line up the collar.

3.Trace it. Make sure the sleeves look like this after tracing.

4.Cut it out just like it is....both side of the shirt at the same time.

5.Turn it inside out,line it up,and sew on the red lines,except don't sew the bottom...you can hem it if you want but I normally don't. Be careful when sewing the top of the sleeves (by the collar). Don't make a point when you start sewing or you'll have little "mountains" on you shoulders.

I really think it's the easiest way to re-con a shirt. If you have any questions,PM me!

You made the actual jacket? I am so impressed! Your stencilling is amazing!
1194  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Re: more flats! Canada flats!! on: July 02, 2005 07:31:18 PM
Very cute! They look good w/ Canada but I wouldn't be caught dead w/ American flags on my feet.  Wink

A little off topic:I woke up in the middle of the night last night (3 AM-ish) and VH1 had a thing on all about Canadians. I think it was called "Awesomely Canadian" or something. I thought it was kind of strange....but I was half asleep so I don't remember much.

Really good job esp. since you didn't sew anything! Sequins would look cool and I must say that I LOVE you hair! I'm so jealous of  anyone with hair that straight.

I love the multi-colored beaded one. I also love the pearl necklace (I didn't read it and thought it was a bracelet)...I just love pearls  Wink

1199  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Discussion and Questions / Re: Expenses; how can I lower them? on: June 29, 2005 07:00:48 PM
Hey...I'm new to beading and discovering that it can be a little pricey  Wink. I went to the bead shop w/ my aunt for the first time today and it was so great. I was looking at a magazine there and saw this site's ad: beadsgalore.com. If you like the Swavroski (as I very much do) I think they are pretty reasonable on their prices,as well as prices on other beads,like the plain silver beads ($10 for 100 sterling silver and $7 for 1000 silver plated.) I'll probably be ordering from them soon,as long as shipping isn't through the roof.

Hey all. This is my first post (kind of,I was a member of craftster for a while but deleted my account. I realized that I can't live w/out it so I came back  Wink) But this is my first jewelry post! Here are 3 pairs of earrings (they don't look this crooked in real life) and 2 bracelets that I made yesterday & today.

Sorry the pics are so huge and AWFUL! I didn't realize how bad they are! The pics don't do any of my stuff any justice.  Embarrassed
