1  Ginkgo Tank - 1st Ever! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ambikab on: June 08, 2007 08:39:48 AM
I've made a couple of purses and done some embellishment but I'd yet to make an article of clothing from scratch...until now!

I scanned McCalls and Simplicity for patterns but didn't see anything that exactly matched what I had in mind.  So I drafted a pattern using two tops I already own.  I wore it yesterday and, magically, it didn't fall apart!

Just wanted to put in that I got the elbow patches on this weekend. 

And I found a short-sleeved hoodie at the store this weekend that I think I'm sure I'm going to alter in the same way--though I have this awesome satin I might use for the patches instead.

3  First Pin (Big Images!) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ambikab on: April 26, 2007 11:50:16 AM
This little guy is made from the lace hem on a skirt I never wore and a strip of tweed left over from some purse projects (can you tell I have a hard time throwing the smallest piece of fabric away?) 

The center looked a little empty but the lace was bunched and sewn so tight that a button or bead looked a little ungainly.  So I sewed six pearlescent seed beads.  They're a little hidden but I think it looks ok.

All sewn onto a pinback from my trove of hand-me-downs!

(Not sure if this goes here or Misc so apologies if it needs to be moved!)

4  Tweed Submarine in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ambikab on: April 09, 2007 10:19:04 AM
So with the last of my tweed fabric, I put together a bag whose shape is roughly based on the bag seen here, which I could never afford (and even if I could, I probably would buy a plane ticket somewhere nice instead.)

The lining is this heavy orange satin from Korea that gives it almost as much weight & stiffness as the interfacing I also used.  It went soooo much faster than my last handbag--it's amazing how fast you improve when you just keep at it.

5  Re: An Awesome Cabled bag from Garnstudio! in Knitalongs by ambikab on: November 18, 2006 02:23:27 PM
So I cheated a little and ended up knitting this on straight needles and a wee bit smaller than the pattern called for.  However, I think my friend is going to love it. My first attempt at cables and it was so easy.
