I turned it into a bubble dress, cinched the waist and added a band of ribbon stuff that was also at the thrift.
Really simple, but I'm pleased.

All-natural curls  Wink
I found the most perfect one ever the other day:


ROBOCOP

I dyed my hair with Sherry Henna and Cherry Kool-Aid, it goes from light red to intense at the bottom.

3  Recon tee dress [pics] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Trip_and_fall on: March 22, 2008 08:40:41 AM
Needless to say, it was a first, all the seams are slightly wonky, my gathering sucks, but I learned from it. Made from two tees that my friend was going to give to the goodwill. It's really comfy to wear with tights and a tee along with my recon legwarmers. The red fabric is 100% organic hemp & chocolate Grin.
If anybody has advice on sewing jersey fabric, gathering, or general whatnot that would help me in the future, please share! I'd love to hear it.
Thanks for looking.

Sorry about my messy teenage room.

Sorry they're a little worn and fuzzy.

Alright, I'm drawing a picture for my birthday cake in October, and I'm putting all my favorite geeky loves on it. So far I have Prime, MC, and a clonetrooper. Does anyone have any ideas for more characters?


Sorry its so big! Tongue

 Smiley So I got my package from Pristinity on Thursday, and I opened up the box and the first thing I saw was the wonderful wrapping/box she made, its so precious, I love little stuff like that.


So thats a group picture of two bracelets, a gorgeous hair tie, a little journal (thanks so much!) and the wrapping box.



And then she also made this great quilted wall hanging, I think I'm going to put it over my closet door.

This swap was great fun--I hope we do a round two!

8  Re-furbished MONSTER Chair! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Trip_and_fall on: October 07, 2006 11:28:17 AM
One day, while browsing the vast and bleak aisles of Wal-Mart (Mall-Wart) I came upon some monster fabric. I bought it, and hours later, finished the chair of my dreams! from ugly purple to fabulous fur!


close up of fur

 Edit: to tack on the fabric, I had to first take the back and the seat off. Then, I used a staple hammer (you could use a staple gun too) to staple the fabric over the old.

9  Ribbon Pillow Tutorial! in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by Trip_and_fall on: July 29, 2006 09:35:37 AM
okay since so many poeple asked how for one, here it is!
you need:
 fusible interfacing
Ribbon
pins
blank pillow
fabric of your choice

So, After you pick out your color of ribbons, how much you need depends on how many colors you have. cut the ribbons into strips as long as your pillow (16 inch pillow, 16 inch ribbons)
arrange them in a pattern and pin them to fusible interfacing

Then, repeat the pattern while your weave it in, pinning the ends as you go.

When you are finished weaving, lightly iron on over the ribbon, then iron the back to seal the deal.


Then, you have the front of your pillow, jutst sew it up however you like, and put the pillow in. voila! Pillow!

I hope this is cler enough, just post your questions if you have any.

10  Geometric Pin Cushin in Completed Projects by Trip_and_fall on: July 19, 2006 04:58:02 PM
 I saw this on a website on shrinky dink pins, and they were displayed in a pincushon. It looked fairly easy to make, just two squares sewn together and stuffed. I put a magnet on the bottom inside to pick up pins...
