1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The first 2 recons I ever did! on: May 22, 2007 07:56:01 AM
These are the first 2 shirts I ever reconstruced and I dont wear either of them! Heh!  The don't fit right so eventually Ill have to go back and fix them.
The NIN shirt is still kinda big and the material on the sides is VERY stretchy so I had a hard time figuring out how to sew it, Ive made a few shirts since then so, maybe in a few days Ill try and fix it.

This one I have to take the sides in, it's pretty boxy and I can't stand that!  If you look at the left on the stripes on the back of the shirt there is a little orange kangaroo! HA!  I used the material from another shirt and had no choice but to include him , hehe!

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sew many problems with this one...hehe! on: May 22, 2007 07:47:17 AM
I just got this tshirt a few months ago and really liked it, the graphic anyway.  It fit pretty well except the sleeves were a little tight and the neck was really high so I  had to do something with it. 
The stuff that the sleeves are made out of I tried to sew as a trim all around the top. WELL that turned out to be a total bitch!  It would make the front droop down all weird no matter what I did so...about 130 last wednesday morning I got all fed up and just sewed the straps on and left the top alone, I like the unfinished look so, it worked out in the end.

I love this shirt!  It was originally just a boxy tshirt that I barely wore b.c it was pretty unflattering BUT i decided to do something with it...this was really easy, no sewing involved at all, just alot of cutting and tieing!  I of course wouldnt wear it with a white bra...probably a black or skin colored one. 

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Another Recon on: May 22, 2007 07:35:42 AM
I got this t-shirt at the Miller Brewing Co. in Milwaukee last summer and I loved it but the sleeves on it were really weird, they were very square-ish or something so I barely wore it.  I decided it was time to bring new life to it!

The white straps are not part of the shirt, its a bra! Yes my dressmaker has a bra on it!  This way I can tell where to make the straps, etc.  And don't mind how wrinkled the shirt is, I wore it last weekend so it was stuffed in an overnight bag until last night  Tongue
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 T-shirts Reconstructed! w/pictures on: May 22, 2007 07:01:52 AM
This clown shirt was the 3rd recon I did but the 1st I actually liked, the other two didnt come out so great, but this one fits me perfectly!!

I liked the way this one fit so much I took an XL tshirt with my friends bands logo on it and did the same thing.  First I had to cut off about 5 inches on each side and sew them back together to make it fit better.  But then when I was ironing down the seam at the top I forgot that the logo was the crap you cant iron!!  I messed up the one corner so then I had to go over the whole logo and iron it to make it look distressed, it actually looks pretty awesome now!  I also had to do the skinny strap a little differently and add some fabric b.c otherwise the top of my bra was totally showing and it didnt look too good  Tongue

6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Pin Cushion!! on: May 22, 2007 06:35:15 AM
I used this tutorial to make an Amish Puzzle Ball pin cushion.

Here are the pictures of mine!  It wasnt too hard, the most tedious part was tracing and cutting out each individual piece.

I'm really happy with it!  Although I do find myself still sticking pins in the couch cushions Grin...I'm trying to remember to use it!
