So here's my first post on craftster. i finally got so bored i had to learn how to post pictures. hope you guys enjoy the stuff i did
sorry about my crazy looking eyes and hair. apparently i am a bit unphotogenic.
The first sweatshirt i did was a $10 men's black sweatshirt from walmart. i painted the flowers on with acrylic w/textile medium, it is kind of crunchy, but i like it anyways. i also put some decorative stiches on the pockets and added thumbholes. pretty awesome.
The other hoodie that i made was inspired by all of the v-neck hoodies i have been seeing around at AE and such. i wanted one, and i couldn't find one that fit quite right so i took this ugly sweatshirt and made it beautiful. it started out with elastic at the wrists and the waist, which was highly unflattering, but i got rid of that. i altered the side seams to make it fit better, and added the v-neck. i think i might add thumbholes and i definitely want to decorate it, i was thinking maybe some embroidery, but i haven't decided.
These belts are some of my personal favs. they are both made from recycled things from the summer camp that i work at. (i am the arts and crafts director... fancy that.) the top belt is one of the straps from an old lifejacket we were throwing away, and the bottom one was made from an old climbing harness that was out of date and had to be replaced... one man's trash is another man's (or woman's) belt.
i would love to hear some feedback, so lay it on me.
