1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / skirt made from t-shirt and jeans? on: September 27, 2011 01:14:30 PM
I saw a woman at work the other day wearing the most amazingly cool patchwork skirt that appeared to have been handcrafted from old t shirts.  The shirts had been cut into 12" (or so) squares and made into the skirt.  She said she bought it new from a store in Europe somewhere but I don't think it would be too hard to make, right?!  I was thinking of using a pair of jeans for the "waistband" just because then I don't have to worry about inserting a zipper.  (I'm not a huge fan of elastic waistbands, though I did consider that as an option also.)  Any thoughts, ideas or words of caution before I embark on this journey?  I'm not new to sewing, but I am new to sewing/reconstructing clothes.  Thanks!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Have great old velvety bedspread. How to turn it into hooded cape for Halloween? on: September 08, 2011 08:01:41 AM
My BF helped a friend move and brought me home a great old dark purple bedspread. It's velvety and would make a great hooded cape for Halloween!  (It has a few small bleach spots.)  I was hoping to find instructions on the web for this as I am not good at designing things myself without a pattern to follow but a Google search came up with nothing.  I thought about buying a pattern and then trying to alter it to use this fabric instead of the 6.5 yards of fabric the patterns called for, but I'm not sure if I'm skilled enough to figure that out either.  It seems like this shouldn't be that hard, but I am stumped.  Any ideas?  Thanks!
