31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / classy black and white dress on: April 01, 2009 12:04:44 PM

I needed a dress for a fancy dinner last weekend, but I didn't want to buy any new fabric. So I whipped up this classy little frock in two days out of some plain white cotton and some black satin. I didn't have enough white fabric to line it though, so I had to cut up an old white dress shirt (good thing I kept that around!).

little heart buttons!

sorry about the bright pictures. cell phone. blah. My friends took some pictures at the actual dinner so maybe I'll post some of those when they get around to uploading them...
32  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / orange seed bead earrings on: March 17, 2009 03:17:22 PM
Oops, I almost wore these today, but then I remembered you're not supposed to wear orange on St. Patrick's day.  Smiley

(sorry about the blurry cell photos)

I think I might go make some blue ones now...
33  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / leather cuff bracelets on: March 17, 2009 01:15:10 PM
I've been reconstructing old purses lately and I used some of the scraps to make these...

The red and turquoise one was inspired by this bracelet I saw at freepeople.com for $118.00. Here is a link to it-- http://www.freepeople.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/products.detail/productID/c26a3bd4-4c5b-40c3-892e-978ba1b2eb43/categoryID/3d60b4d1-2fb9-4c11-b046-8ee02a9e28fe

I designed the black and gold rose one on my own and I totally love it. It makes me feel like a rock star. But a classy rock star. Thanks for looking! Rock on!
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ruffle tunic tank on: March 17, 2009 12:45:41 PM

I made this tunic tank top thing out of a big tshirt from goodwill. I used the sleeves to make a neck ruff. At first I meant for it to be worn loose and flowing, but it's more flattering with a belt or ribbon around the waist.

it also looks hot with a high waisted skirt (sorry for the lack of ironing...)

I can't wait to wear it out, too bad it's going to be cold the next few days...
35  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / cropped cardigan/jacket/shirt thingy... on: March 03, 2009 11:41:02 AM
Not sure what to call this, but I made it out of an old t-shirt with a huge superman S graphic and a basketball team graphic. It was hard to work around the images, but eventually i ended up with this--

It doesn't match with much since it's such a bright royal blue. I was thinking about maybe dying it navy so it would match more of my clothes? any thoughts?

also, any idea what to call it? it's not quite a shrug, not quite a shirt, not quite a jacket...
36  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / drapey grey top on: March 02, 2009 01:27:08 PM

I cut up a big old t-shirt and turned it into a pretty top with drapey sleeves. It was really easy. I started it friday afternoon and finished it in time to wear out to dinner.

37  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sassy vest (made out of pants) on: February 23, 2009 10:04:58 AM
I had a pair of dress pants that didn't fit me anymore so I cut them up and turned them into this--

Everything on this vest is recycled from the pants (except the thread!). I made my own covered buttons out of the buttons on the pants, and I cut interfacing out of the waistband for the button-holes. I had just enough material from the pants to fully line it. I'm so thrilled that it actually fits and I didn't have to make darts or anything.

P.S. here is a tutorial for covering buttons-- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=181926.0 --except I used regular buttons with holes. I just made my own shank out of a paper-clip, then I glued some felt over the top, and then I did the covering thing.
38  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / skirt with pockets! (from t-shirt) on: February 16, 2009 01:55:08 PM
I just made this fabulous orange skirt out of an old XL shirt i got for $1. I love the big slouchy pockets and the high waist.

It was really easy to make. I want to make another own in grey but I'm all out of elastic. Sad oh well, it's 20*F outside so it's not like I can wear skirts yet anyway... Thanks for looking!
39  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / pretty magazine valentines on: February 09, 2009 05:52:56 PM
I made a bunch of valentines for my friends out of old magazines and mod-podge.

I still have a lot more to make but I thought I'd share the idea. If you want to make them it's pretty straight-forward. Old magazines... Glue... But I put some descriptions and tips on my blog if you are interested---
(please visit my blog! it will make me feel special  Smiley )

So yeah, I took pictures of my two favorites, but i can probably upload more pics if people are interested. Thanks for looking!
40  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Notre Dame monogram pillow on: December 15, 2008 04:39:44 PM
I made this pillow for my friend's dorm. His futon isn't very comfy, so hopefully I'll be able to use it whenever I hang out there. selfish? probably... but I don't think he got me anything for christmas anyway...  Wink

a photo on my hot pink chair.

and I tried to take a close-up of the stitching. It's just plain old cotton with a zig-zag stitch, so it will probably start to fray right away, but I don't think he will mind too much.

Well, I hope he likes it!
