1  my first success =D in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mpaandaa on: June 04, 2008 01:34:41 AM
I made a waistband from the bottom part of a knit shirt (kmart, $3)  that shrunk up and out (got short and fat, you get what you pay for).  I took a square piece of fabric (from my mom's 20 something year old stash), cut a hole in the middle and sewed the waistband to it.  Got the idea from looking at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=148040.msg1462738#msg1462738

I'm on the short side, so I left the waistband long that way because it seemed to make me look taller and thinned out my flabby thighs. This is my first successful recon and took my 3 hours because i kept threading my machine wrong xD

ok so here's a pic:

2  My three creations in Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects by mpaandaa on: February 06, 2007 12:26:30 AM
These are (the) three dolls I've made ever.. lol.  They are in chronologogical order from left to right.  The first one has no legs because it's the first thing I ever made on my own!  The second one is made from an old sock and is supposed to be my boyfriend, complete with the chain wallet =P  For the pants I used scraps from old jeans xD The last one is part of a project I made for school last year.  It used to have a big styrofoam ball (representing all of society) strapped around her ankle, like a ball and chain.  I don't know what happened to it.  The faces were done with marker, embroidery (well i tried anyway) and paint.  I think I've improved over the years  Cheesy

3  Simple but I'm still lost! (t shirt stenciling.. sorta) in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by mpaandaa on: July 04, 2006 02:56:14 AM
My boyfriend loves MUSE almost as much as I do, and he used the cover of one of their albums in an artproject for school so when I saw a tshirt with that design, I wanted to get it for him becuse it would have been perfect. By the time I convinced my mom to buy it, the shirt was long gone from the store (OMFG! T.T)  So now I'm going to make him one =D

Here's the cover:



I was thinking I could just get a yellow shirt and then use that freezer paper technique I found in the sraftster blog, but then i saw the white.  I really want to make this shirt perfect so i was wondering how i'd get white on a yellow shirt?  I've had bad experience with paint and white on yellow seems bad.  Is that my only option?  Help me please!!  (what about spray paint? xD has anyone every tried that on a shirt before?)  Thank you for reading =]

4  XXXL shirt into skirt (so many first!) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by mpaandaa on: April 15, 2006 02:22:00 AM
I came across this site today, and i'm posting my first successful recon in the same day =D  hehehe.. i actually got this idea before i found this site, so i feel proud  (even tho it's horribly simple)  Cheesy

I found this red shirt at ross.  It's a triple extra large. I paraded around in the store for a half hour pretending it was a skirt, trying to decide if i should buy it. (as i had never sewn on a machine before, and i'm lazy xD)  I went home without it, since $11 on a maybe seemed too risky (i don't finish projects!!)  But then I told my boyfriend about it and he was like "that'd be cool, you should have got it"  So I went back and found a nice big one... plump and juicy, just waiting for ms. scissors!! ^0^



I had my experienced mom (tho she doesn't do recons)  help me figure it out.. and finished it while she was napping  Roll Eyes  I'm quite proud, especially since i made a huge mistake and got the skirt all sewn wierd, and yeah.. I love my seam ripper.

And here's the finished product!



(hahah.. boob shadow)  Like my haircut? I got it yesterday (and yes, that's the top of the shirt)
