9501  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / recon gone wrong on: August 19, 2006 09:08:27 PM
Okies I decided to re-con a t-shirt for "beach day" at church. We're decorating it in beach stuff and suppsoed to wear beach clothes. it's going to be fun.
however I have no beach clothes. I haven't been to the beach since I was little. So I have no idea what this means. And that means asking hubby over and over again to go through my wardrobe and help me out.
(poor guy)
So I decided to re-con a t-shirt into a halter top. Seemed easy enough. I picked out a tee that as to tight in the sleeves and figured it would be easy to tranform from tube top to halter top. At walmart otday buying ribbon for the halter tie I saw this cute yellow cotton that matcehd the yellow in the butterfly on the front of the tee so I bought it. I got home started cutting yeah tube top! It fits and I actually cut my shirt straight! Score 1! hjubby measured my hips and my boobs so I could edge the shirt with yellow fabric. I cut my fabric and proceded to spend three hours sewing. Upon finishing I attempt to try on finished shirt. Unfortunetly this is here I realize that I bought a non strechy knit cotton it's stiff and doesnt strech and my hips are more narrow than noy boobs so I can't get the thing over my boobs to try it on. Sad Yeah I should know about mixing fabrics by now. I'm not a big time newbie. My mom has lectured me on this ovcer and over. But I didn't read the decription of the fabric and here I am. With one totally cute shirt that I cannot wear. I can probably salvage the shirt with a zipper or something but it's jsut frustrating becasue now it's midnight and all I have to wear tommarrow is a pair of cut off jeans. GRRRRR.
I will save the shirt buy a zipper at some point and try  to fix it. But still .GRRRRR>

Wow! My sewwing machine would eat me before letting me sew something like this. But it's awesome! I love the details. The butterfly is a beautiful efect.
9503  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Angel Rat Plushie (image Heavy)<with tut on page 2> on: August 19, 2006 05:41:06 PM
I made this for Devaint Art's GReat plushie Contest. I didn't place but there were so many really impressive entrys that it didn't surprise me. However I am very pleased becasue It had been awhile since I'd made a plushie and I hand sewed the whole thing. I used a bunch of scrap Faux fur for most of it. And some brown curdoroy that matched for anything non fur. I also used white cotton for the wings and purple felt for the paws. The tail was purple knit that I cut into strips and braided when the original felt tail was not big enough.

Front veiw:

Details:
Wings

ears and eyes

Feet


Please ignore my microwave. The kitchen is the best lit room in the house. So I took the pictures in there.
The pattern was completely made by me. Which ment I miss made several peices and had to re-do them as I went. The head was origianlly too small so it got re-made, the tail was to wierd so I remade it with the version you see here. And I should have weighed his feet and legs down with rice or beans and didn't so he doesn't always stand up properly.
I will probably be remaking it at some point becasue it came out nothing like I had wanted. Smiley

I bet if you couldput some darts or something in the backit would fit even better. I have no idea how to do this the "real" way but If I were trying to do it myselfI would put the shirt on and have a friend fold it in two places up the back (with the folded part on the outside.) and then pin it.
Cut the folds so you've only got about and inch of extra fabric and basiclly two slits in the fabric up the back. Then turn it inside out and pin on the inside and sew it up.
But honestly this is the cutest project! I love the poofy sleeves!

my mom lays her stained fabric on a really green bushy bush and the sun takes the stain out. You might have some sun bleaching though so monitor it really close.

Oh I love the second one. If you really wanted to edit it you could cut it rounded and add ruffles and more lace. But personally I love the skirt the way it is. *WAVES* Oh guess what I just bought 5 yards of fabric and can't wait to make something with them. (though the one is allready planned for something, the other I just couldnt pass up.) *hugs*
