1  bag from an old T-shirt in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pink peanut on: August 07, 2005 12:46:05 PM
I made this bag from an old T-shirt I had that had gotten too thin to wear. I love it too much to get rid of it, so I turned it into a bag. It has a lining from pink T-shirt fabric, and between the shirt and the lining is an old thin quilt that I used to make it stiffer and thicker. The way I sewed it is basically the way you sew a little coin purse with lining and a zipper, with a few modifications of my own. There's an inset pocket in the lining with a zipper. That was the hardest part. The strap was sewn on after.

2  hot pink shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by pink peanut on: August 07, 2005 12:40:53 PM
I made this shirt from some T-shirt fabric I got at a thrift store. I cut it up and pieced it together on my dress form. The pieces are basically just sewn overlapping with zigzag machine stitch. I sewed the patches on after.

3  shirt from too-small shirt and fabric in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pink peanut on: August 07, 2005 12:36:26 PM
The striped parts were a shirt I got that I never wore cause it was too small. I got some purple T-shirt fabric, and pieced it all together after I cut up the striped one. I left the neck the way it was to make it easier.

4  small red bag in Knitting: Completed Projects by pink peanut on: August 05, 2005 03:33:31 PM
Here's a small purse I finished (though it still needs a lining). It's knit in popcorn or seed stitch, with a stripe and edging of funky pink yarn. I knit it in a long rectangle, then decreased into a triangle at the top, and sewed the sides together. The strap is crocheted in two rows of slip stitch. Hope you enjoy...

5  2 cloche hats with flowers in Crochet: Completed Projects by pink peanut on: August 04, 2005 09:58:56 AM
Here's my first finished crochet hat. I worked it in single crochet in the round with simple increases every other row, about every other stitch, then just straight single crochet for the main tube part. to get the curl at the bottom I just did two single crochet stitches in every stitch, and then the last row I decreased every other stitch. The flower is a combo of single, half double, and double stitches in "waves." Thanks for checking it out!    

     

         

Here's another hat I just finished, it's basically the same pattern in pink
