72  Flowery Summer Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iota1617 on: May 11, 2008 09:26:45 AM
I made this purse mostly from a towel that used to belong to my roommate (when he saw how much I loved the pattern on it, he couldn't say no to giving it to me).  The flowers are really bright and I love them for the summer. 

The lining and the knots on the strap are a linen material that I got from my grandma so this was a freebie to make!

And of course there is a pocket inside.  How else would I find my keys in any kind of timely manner!

73  Dino short pants. Yeah! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iota1617 on: May 08, 2008 10:33:00 AM
I just made these on a whim while I was waiting for some paint to dry on another project and I think they turned out pretty sweet. 

The top is an old pair of pants that went into my fabric bin because they got a hole in the ahh.. not nice place for a hole.  So i cut off above the hole and sewed some dino fabric I picked up for cheap from the remnants area of JoAnns.  The fabric is really soft, cotton so they are totally comfy.

These are the first pants that I have ever made (well half made) and I can't wait until it is warm enough to wear them!

74  Summer Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iota1617 on: April 19, 2008 06:39:46 AM
I found a great waffle jacket for cheap!  So I cut the sleeves short and then added some gray t-shirt material to the bottoms to make the sleeves elbow length (which is great because I always end up rolling my sleeves up there anyway.) Then i embellished it a little with some great  buttons.

Now it is my spring and summer jacket


My crafting buddy had the great idea to put buttons on the zipper pull too!

I got my last package yesterday.

I received a fantastic odd crochet duo from Homerof2!

I really like both of them.   My cup has never been quite so cozy and I will probably use the heart as a trivet instead of a dishcloth because I don't think I could bear to get it all dirty like that.

Here is a close up of the lovely colors of the cup cozy

I got my delightful checkbook cover from ccswch!

I put on the white and tan headband from nikkidear almost immediately after I opened the package.  I got a brown one too!  They are tremendous.

79  Delete WAR - Computer Key Barrette in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iota1617 on: March 16, 2008 09:16:14 AM
I actually made this barrette a few years ago and it has just occurred to me to make a post about it.  So here it is!

There are small holes drilled through both sides of all of the keys and then I used fishing line to tie the keys to the barrette.

And the action shot - in my hair

80  Stripped Vest (sort of from pattern) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by iota1617 on: February 24, 2008 11:16:22 AM
This was my first attempt at making something from a pattern.  Usually I post in the reconstructed section.  I made this vest using the Simplicity 4079 pattern.  Well I started out making it from that pattern but towards the end I kind of veered off and did my own thing. 

I am happy with how it turned out.

The back was supposed to have a buckle but I opted to be a cheapo and just tie it.  Plus the pattern was still a smidge big for me even after I cut it down a little so it is kind of ruffled in the back.

I also used snaps instead of buttons

except I did use these fantastic giant buttons on the shoulders.
