1  Look what I found in the closet.. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by iloveyou330 on: March 26, 2008 09:56:41 PM
Alright. So I'm going downtown tomorrow with a few friends and just checked the weather online. It's too cold for a thin hoodie but too warm for my winter jacket. Solution? Well I looked in our closet to see if I could find an old (not ugly!) spring coat to wear, and I found this.

My brother's football jacket from fourth grade. I love it, but the biggest issue is it makes me feel like a giant marshmellow, and it's a little too much blue. I felt like simply taking in the sides would make it look odd...  Any ideas? Smiley

Alrighty. You didn't mention anything about resizing a shirt before, so I'm guessing it's you first time. First, get a shirt that fits you well, use that as a guide to making your shirt smaller. Here's a picture ( Is this what your shirt looks like)

So you just sew on the gray lines. But before you turn it inside out and start sewing, first mark the lines on the outside lightly with pencil, so you can get an idea of how it will look when your done. Then turn it inside out, sew, and cut off the excess fabric. Be very careful not to make the shirt too tight. What I do is I resize one side first, try it on and see how much more needs to be taken off. Than I resize the other side. Hope that made sense. Good luck! You can always practice on another shirt first.

3  Staple Gun in Interior Decorating: Discussion and Questions by iloveyou330 on: July 07, 2005 03:50:14 PM
Hi, I was hoping you guys could help. Well I'm reupholstering a chair, so I went out and bought a light duty arrow staple gun. But there's one problem: it didn't come with directions, and I don't know how to put the staples in! I'm guessing they go in here ((ignore my face)

    Help?  Huh

I haven't seen any drawstring bags here, so I thought I'd post the one I made for my best friend's bday. This is my first time making a bag, and I didn't use a pattern.  Smiley
