251  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: what to do with all those scraps? on: April 26, 2006 05:51:38 PM
Wow, this is so inspiring! I'm such a scrap whore. I save all the little pieces even though I rarely find something to do with them. As soon as I saw this I just had to give it a try. Check out what I've got so far--



I'm trying to use lots of bright colours. The great thing about this project is you can make the necklace to match the clothes that you've already made out of the same material.

Mine is a little thinner than yours. I had a lot of thin strips of scrap fabric that I wanted to use up. I kind of want to make it a long necklace, but it tends to shed little threads and I don't want those to end up all over my shirt. Hm. We'll see.

Haha, thanks for the inspiration!

Wow, that tie dress is so cute. What a great idea!

I didn't use a pattern. I just made it up. I like to use patterns when I can afford them though, because they save alot of time on the guesswork and I don't jab myself with pins so much. Haha.

PinkyK, I say you go for it. Post some pictures when you're done, and good luck!

I love the print of this fabric and how well it flows and flutters...



It has an invisible zipper in the back. It was my first time using an invisible zipper, and wow, I just can't wait to use them some more. They're just so perfect. I had to sew it on by hand though because I don't have the right foot for my machine.

I'm really proud of the way this turned out. It's so comfy and flattering. I wore it to school the other day and got lots of compliments. Yay, I just love bright, vibrant spring colours! Thanks for looking.

I don't remember what site I grabbed this image from, but, speaking of ruffly denim skirts, I always thought it was pretty awesome-



It looks pretty haphazard and easy to throw together since most of the edges are raw. I suggest using bright colours if you can. Good luck getting the guy!
256  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 10 ENTRIES / Pastel Patch Flats on: April 06, 2006 05:35:44 PM


I made these adorable pastel patched flats out of these gross, ugly old uniform shoes from grade six. I've been wearing them for cleaning and yardwork for the past six years, so they were pretty beat up-



I put them through the washer first. Then I cut off the top parts with the laces and tongues and went to town with scrap fabric.



I love how spring-ish they are. They're comfy too, and look great with jeans. Plus, I have a shirt that I made out of that same blue material, and I'm working on a sundress with the green.



This is my first time entering a craftster challenge, and it was really fun. Thanks for looking!

Wow, great job. My first project was a costume too.

That's awesome, but if you're going to be a dragon then you're totally going to need some wings!

If you're a senior or junior and you get a ridiculous amount of college promo letters and flyers you could probably make something out of those. Maybe fanfold them and make a skirt. You could fanfold lots of stuff to make outfits- like old notes and homework papers, grocery bags or newspapers. Decorate it with some paper flowers. Watch out for paper cuts though, haha.

Or maybe you could find a pattern for an article of clothing and sew the pattern pieces together instead of cutting it on cloth. You'd probably have to line it or something though, and that's not exactly trash.

Hm, there's so much stuff you could do. I have a bunch of plastic target bags lying around. I bet they'd make an excellent raincoat. Milk jug purse? Aluminum can shoes? cereal box hat? Haha, hope this helped!
