1  Lace up arm warmers in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by seaphrael on: September 30, 2007 02:19:58 PM
I don't know about you guys, but I love arm warmers. I went on this craze for a while turning all my knee socks into arm warmers, and then eventually realized I could be doing more with them. So I piloted the lace up pair:

They're sort of ghetto cause I didn't even bother to make the holes proper buttonholes in all my excitedment to finish, but I have big plans to make more and use eyelets so they'll look better.

2  My brown and blue dress...a little late for summer in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by seaphrael on: September 30, 2007 02:17:33 PM
I have this slip that I got somewhere and I've always liked the way it fit me, so I wanted to make a dress using the same pattern. I did what I could without taking it apart in terms of copying the pattern, and I think it turned out well except that it's a size too small for me! Regardless, I adore the fabric and wanted to share. My tiny roommate is modeling it here.

You can't see it in this picture, but the thread around the buttonholes is bright blue to offset the bright pink and brown.

Thanks for looking!

3  My batiked peacock duvet cover in Dyeing: Completed Projects by seaphrael on: September 30, 2007 02:10:06 PM
I had this old white duvet cover for approximately a million years, and finally decided to do something better with it. So I cut it up and batiked the back part (the front became rags to clean up all the dye i spilled in the basement...oops) with this peacock. The background didn't come out super great because it was so huge and I had a small bucket, so it's not dyed very evenly...but I think it's all right. Anyway, after I was finished with it I found a new duvet cover at a rummage sale for like, $2 and sewed the peacock on the front. Now he keeps me warm!

4  Embroidered men's dress shirt! in Needlework: Completed Projects by seaphrael on: September 30, 2007 02:00:21 PM
I made this shirt for my boyfriend a little while ago and finally took a picture of it:

I just sketched the pattern on there with a pencil and then stitched over it...it puckered a little around the kid but overall I am happy with it.

5  short sleeve hoodies are my newest crush in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by seaphrael on: September 23, 2007 09:29:32 PM
I had some t-shirts lying around that I loved, but never wore because they were too big. Or not stylish enough, or something. But one benefit of working for a t-shirt company is the endless supply of free misprinted shirts I have at my disposal. So! I took some free shirts and cut them up and combined them and ended up with the following...

Thanks for looking!

6  three stooges dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by seaphrael on: September 23, 2007 09:24:10 PM
I don't know about you, but I love the Three Stooges. It's one of those shows my dad always rented at the video store when I was a kid, so I get all nostalgic. So of course when I saw this fabric I had to buy a ton! I made this dress so far, and have a bunch left...

sorry the pictures are small. The design is my own- I used a slip I have for guidance on measurements. The straps are held on at the front with two black buttons.

Thanks for looking!

So, a while ago I decided to try my hand at embroidery and made this shirt:

sorry it's a picture of my boobs...but that's where the embroidery is!

8  The Beer Case Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by seaphrael on: September 22, 2006 12:14:05 AM
Hey guys! I've been investigating stuff on this site for a while, and I finally joined today after finishing my first project. This was inspired by the scrabble box purse featured on the site as well as me coming across an awesome beer case. It's a fairly basic design- I cut out the sides and the insides of the box, covered the outside with clear contact paper, lined it with foam core (it took a lot of contact cement and several tries), and then fabric. I used purse handles from JoAnn's and attached them with ribbon. To keep the purse closed, I glued a beer cap on to a plastic bobbin case, which is attached on one side, and then attached a ribbon on the other which can be wound around said bobbin to keep it shut. It holds the basics and hasn't fallen apart on me yet...enjoy.
