1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / coffee filter dress! on: September 21, 2008 01:37:37 PM
So my roommate and I went to a friend's birthday "anything but clothes party," where the "dress code" was to wear things not traditionally clothing focused. up to the challenge, i decided to make a dress out of coffee filters!

Using lots of tape, I made lines of filters and taped the lines in an overlapping fashion to make a big rectangle, plus a few for the "top:"

Since you can't just wrap a rectangle around, I made a bustle to cover up the back side...same idea: I folded the filters into triangles and staggered/taped them together:

I then taped the bustle to the "rectangle," wrapped it around and taped it together on myself & was ready to go out!

It held up surprising well considering it was rainy outside, and it only got crinkled up when I finally sat down...and later cut it off myself to put on regular clothes haha Smiley

3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Perler/Fuse beads on: July 27, 2005 02:56:06 PM
I have a whole kit of perler beads (the kind you put on a grid & iron to fuse them together) that I'd feel bad about throwing away, but have no use for. Someone did a mosaic with them on this site...but I just dont have a use for anything like that...
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Crazy Bo-Peep! on: July 26, 2005 05:40:38 PM

This is from this pattern: http://www.mccallpattern.com/item/M4825.htm
The fabric I had was annoying so I got frustrated and decided not to make the top part, but just make it into a skirt. It's basically a circle skirt (which you can find tutorials for all over craftster) with 3 layers and a band on top for tying.

Reminds me of Little Bo Peep.....but slightly odd-er:


5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / tee-fabric gauchos on: July 25, 2005 09:26:47 PM
Any one have a jist of a pattern for those gaucho-style pants that are made out of stretchy tee-like material?

Thanks in advance for any help for ideas!

hooray for remnants bins! this fabric called out to me in walmart--- 1 yd for $0.80! & for me, i totally go for anything polka-dotted.

i even had some to spare for a headband, and maybe some other stuff in the future!
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions / diskette purse on: July 03, 2005 08:51:30 PM
i saw this purse:
on fractalspin.com, and being a technology nerd myself along with being a craftster, i automatically thought "hey, i can make that!"

but then at the same time, i'm slightly confused how you would go about making this? any ideas?
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / go go GADGET PURSE! (fairly image heavy) on: June 24, 2005 05:03:15 PM
inspiration? "i'm-sick-of-having-to-dig-thru-a-bag-to-find-stuff." solution? one giant wallet-y purse to hold all of my neccessities.

finished project:

opened up:

& with additional area:

if anyone would like a tutorial, request it and i can try to type out the directions....here are the materials since you all are smart & could probably work from that. the white layer is interfacing.

A= front, back, and lining of basic rectangle
C= material for handles
D= material for row of pockets
E= flap to cover it all

***tips: if any one attempts to make this, i'd place the handles somehwere different than i have, as my design is to front heavy. also, sew the row of pockets to the appropriate A piece before sewing it all together so you can have the inner part open.

good luck & happy crafting!
9  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / MST3K! Stenciled Shirt on: June 18, 2005 05:27:43 PM
tom servo....

i actually stencilled this shirt a while back, but never thought to put it up here til i wore it today. there is also a lot more detail on the actual shirt, but my camera flash kinda washed it all out.
