6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / white tshirt...and then some... on: March 09, 2006 05:48:07 PM
so, i went through this whole only white tshirt phase a few years ago and i have some still lying around.  i decided to take one and embellish it, you know, make it better.

i added the bottom part, elasticated the sleeves and added some ribbons...

7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / DCB bag on: February 27, 2006 08:16:33 PM
my sister works for dylan's candy bar and she needed a bag to carry all of her work stuff (she's the event coordinator) but she didn't want the generic totes they sold at the store so i made her this...

http://www.jamieaucoin.com/sewing/dylans_bag1.jpg
she picked out this black/orange denim type material.  i'm not really sure what she saw in it, but it turned out pretty nicely.  i took an old dylan's shirt i had and sew the logo onto it.  i also took some ribbon and mocked the "dylans stripes" that are all over the store and whatnot.

http://www.jamieaucoin.com/sewing/dylans_bag2.jpg
for the inside i just turned the fabric backwards so it was orange/black and added a small pocket for id/money/etc.

also, my mom gave me this upolstery fabic that i love, but i'm not sure what sort of bag it wants to be.  any ideas?

let me know what you guys think...

http://www.jamieaucoin.com/sewing/sweater_after.jpg
old sweater that i resized and made more better for me when i'm at work.  i'm always cold at work, but i can't stand having sleeves when i'm using a mouse (they get in the way).  so i made this short sleeved for more comfort. i also added the pouch to hide my snacks from my boss (she'll want to steal them and eat them herself, greedy sugar monger).

http://www.jamieaucoin.com/sewing/bernsteinfront_after.jpg
my bernstein bears shirt that doesn't fit anymore (damn boobies) so i made it cool weather friendly.
