That's awesome!
22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dowdy pantsuit to dapper wool coat! on: December 02, 2013 04:15:13 PM

I'm so proud of this coat! Ahhhhh! I want to wear it EVERY DAY! And I CAN! Because it's a coat, and that's socially acceptable!

BUT... all great things come at a price. There is a darker side to my story. For in order to bring this beautiful coat to life, I had to commit a murder... I had to hunt down and slay this wild beast of a thrifted pantsuit --- http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g157/lancaster5/Photoon2012-10-08at21224.jpg

It was a gorgeous gray tweed in 100% virgin wool. That's right! No slutty sheep in THIS coat!

So after the virgin suit sacrifice, it was simply a matter of cutting off the jacket at the waist, turning the pants into the skirt part, and adding more buttons. Oh yeah, and overcoming my enormous fear of failure EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. And perfectionisting all over the place - taking in the sleeves & waist to fit better, hand sewing keyhole-button-holes, making welt pockets for the first time, and ironing EVERY seam. But it was worth it. Cause see how dapper I look! Smiley

And another flirty over the shoulder shot... I feel so flirty in this coat!

This looks awesome! I always struggle with getting back zippers to lie flat and look straight, so I'm afraid to try contrast zips. But yours looks PERFECT!

PS, your Bond-girl needs a weapon or spy gadget! Smiley

Nice job! I procrastinate all my projects too. And then I procrastinate posting them here... Hive five for finishing!

You look so chic! Great find! I can never pass up some good second hand silk

What's going to happen to the rest of the drss? Tote bag? Throw pillows? Jammies?
27  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Plastic bags basket on: November 16, 2013 07:45:45 AM

I made this little basket out of nothing but plastic bags! It's about nine inches wide. I don't know if I'll use it for anything, but it's looking cute on an end table in our living room right now.

Now I'm itching to make a big storage basket. I still have TONS more bags...

I made a decorative paper chain out of these at work. Bunting would be cute too.

These are so adorable! Haha, I would love to see a tutorial on how to quilt aggressively! That sounds like something I'd like to try Smiley
30  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Stash busting ten stitch blanket... on: November 14, 2013 06:22:01 PM
This is so inspiring! When I first saw this two weeks ago, I forgot to post a comment because I was too eager to start knitting my own!

Knitting a blanket has always been on my bucket list, but I always got so discouraged with other patterns -- the ones where you knit huge long rows for days and you can't imagine how it will ever be a blanket, so you unravel it and make another hat... But  with this one, I can see the blanket coming together! And it's fun to throw so many colors together. Plus I can work on it while I'm snuggled up watching Netflix... Mine is only the size of a bed pillow right now, but I'm in love with it! Thanks for posting this!
