1  Danger Danger in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TheBarbie on: March 15, 2010 05:09:20 PM
"That is....dangerous!"

That was my bf's reaction upon seeing this. He's usually so supportive  Roll Eyes

Anyways, a measuring tape and one of those little scissors you get in sewing kits:

Thanks for looking!
Have the best night of your life,

2  Nine Rings-which i think equals three circuses.... in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by TheBarbie on: March 15, 2010 03:53:18 PM
Today I made rings.

Because they are like five bucks a piece at the lovely local Claires, and they rust unless you take them off which I for one think is stupid. Smiley

So I whipped some up. The actual ring part that wraps around the finger is these plastic rubbery things that came in a pack of assorted sizes from Dollar Tree. I believe it's for like hardware or something. I also used black elastic for some, that I just  hot glue gunned. Let me just say how much i love hot glue guns. I never used them till like this year but they are God's gift to crafting. So, needless to say, that's how I attached the items to the "rings".

(Can I just say how awkward it is to photograph hands? After a few attempts I was like-"really, are my hands really that old looking?" Who knew you could be insecure about that?!)

1. This is a bottle cap I got from Sweden and have saved because it reminds me of the Rage Against the Machine star, and
they are amazing:

2. This is a blatant rip off of jewelrybug's "Button Rings - lots of pics " post, but I added thread too:

3. This is just the end of a paperclip that i ripped off with my bare hands because i am strong:

4. Another button:

5. Some kind of wire stuff wrapped around and defrazzled at the end:

6. This was the end of a hair clip. The dollar store had like ten of these for a dollar with various musical themes:

7. A covered button, as an afterthought maybe white fabric was not the best choice as it's sure to be stained up after thirty minutes of wear.

8. A measuring tape:

9. This is my super duper original piece  Wink lol:

And this is my niece, just because I hope she makes you smile:

Thank you for taking a look!
Much love,

3  Princess sleeves and fancy pockets (i.e. shirts that take more than 10 minutes) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TheBarbie on: March 15, 2010 03:00:50 PM

You know those clothes with the annoying details that you know you'd never have the patience to make but actually look kinda cute? This is one of those.... I've been eyeing puff sleeves and embellished pockets for months but I think I'm suspicious of anything that actually takes time and effort to sew, hence the procrastination.

I ripped up a hideous salmon colored shirt that coincidentally had both puffy sleeves and the pockets and used that as a reference. The pockets were kind of tricky but I think its a good way to introduce a contrasting fabric, plus, um, they're pockets so whats not to love. I am gonna add a hood with the black/grey fabric too.

The Johnny Lang shirt was my fiances, I don't listen to him so I'm not sure what I'm supporting.....Since this was my first time trying these techniques, I just picked a shirt I didn't care about too much.

Here's my action shot. I know mirror pics are so myspace but it's the best i could do Smiley

And here it is on my littered bedroom floor:

Much Love!

5  finding the balance of pretty and modesty....(swimsuit top) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by TheBarbie on: August 02, 2007 09:13:43 AM
Know what i'm talking about? Trying to look good while not showing too much is quite the fun game. So here's what i got-bought a Large bathing suit top too make sure there'd be lots of fabric to mess around with, sew'd it up the middle and modified a bit.

Swimsuit top:

Do you think it's balanced....I'm also wondering if it's a bit too simple. But oh gosh-its beachwear, how impressive and creative must one be ya know?
Thanks babies
rock on, ariel
