11  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Plastic garden netting? on: May 12, 2010 04:53:58 PM

What the heck can I do with this.  I want to do something creative with this.  Any ideas will be much appreciated.  I don't want to use it for gardening.  There is a lot of it. Thanks! Smiley

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / What should I do with dress? Or is it too ugly to bother with? on: April 09, 2010 06:32:37 PM
Is this fabric terribly ugly?  Would it make a nice enough sun dress.  I need someone to tell me lol.  I cannot decide whether it is pretty or not? I don't know what to do with it, it cost a whole dollar.  I'm pretty sure it has some sort of polyester or something underneath the see-through flowery material, except for on the sleeve area. 

This is my idea maybe a little shorter between the top of the bust to under the bust area than in the picture but you get the idea, or would it maybe just make a nice skirt?  Any help is much much appreciated, thanks so much.
13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-shirt, old knives, hanger = cheap fabric storage. on: March 25, 2010 09:22:41 AM
Hello I was in need of some cheap fabric storage.  I had an extra large T-shirt some old knives and an old hanger.  Don't ask me where I got the idea, I don't have an answer, it just popped into my head, weird.  I suppose it is somewhat like blinds for a window in a way.......  So anyways, here it is.  I am also hoping it can help anyone out there who needs cheap storage like I do.  It may not be the most beautiful thing but it can be in the closet. It was just a quick experimental idea.  So i'm sure you could make it much nicer, but I was working with limited supplies.









I may even have enough left from the shirt to make another one, probably not as big but something.
Comments and questions welcome.  I will try to answer questions aswell as I am able.  Thanks for looking. 
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skirt with ruffles, made out of old jogging pants/sweatshirt hoodie/pantleg on: February 24, 2010 07:53:33 PM
Made out of old jogging pants, sweatshirt hoodie and jean pantleg.  Detail in back pocket is just sewn down with random straight stitch since I don't have anything to stick it down with, so that is what I came up with, I think it looks neat.  The waist I just stretched out and sewed down a strip on jean material.  The skirt is quite heavy, more of a spring type of skirt or winter with leggings I would say.  Not sure if I will ever wear it at all, not sure if I like it.  Plus I don't own a pair of leggings and don't have money to get any lol.





Comments and questions welcome.  I will try my best to answer any questions.  Thanks for looking.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Halter top sweater dress/long shirt. on: February 24, 2010 07:40:59 PM

Comments and questions welcome, I will try to answer questions as best possible.  Thanks for looking.
16  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / The cupcakes I made for today. on: February 14, 2010 11:18:38 AM
Devils food chocolate cupcakes, not made from scratch lol.  I added chocolate chips, used a vanilla icing, decreative sprinkles and icing for the hearts.  I added red food colouring to half the icing which made it dark pink after adding a lot.  Now I have to get rid of them somehow.  Family/Friends are getting them.  I tested a few, purely for scientific matters......ahem ya right haha.



17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little Puppy for my little nephew on: February 12, 2010 07:10:53 PM

I made this puppy, took me hours!  For my new nephew who is just over a month old now. I figure he likes to hold his bottle he might like to hold this skinny puppy, put a bright red bow on it so he can maybe see it better.  Hope it isn't too girly lol, ohwell.  I used a mans dressshirt that was probably never worn by my boyfriend to make it.  I hope my nephew likes it.







I embroidered his name on there, not a very good picture, but you get the idea.
Comments welcome, questions aswell, thanks for looking.
18  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Pet bed all out of recycled materials, except thread. on: February 11, 2010 05:32:02 PM
I made this cat bed from a sturdy cardboard box and some denim material from a bedskirt I never really used.  I basically just measured panels and pinned them on the box inside out then adjusted the pins, took it off and sewed it together it is like a pillowcase for the outter structure of the box.  I used my boyfriends old house coat as the cushion part, I can just take that out and wash it and take the cover off and wash it too if needed.




My kitty Muffin, who won't really stand still for a decent picture.

My kitty Trinket, she sits still for very long periods at a time lol.

Comments and Questions welcome,  I will try to answer any questions about the construction I can if there are any.  Thanks for looking.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mens dress shirt reconstruction to womens girly shirt. on: February 11, 2010 05:21:01 PM
My first reconstruction of a mans dress shirt, let alone my first decent shirt reconstruction. I made this shirt out of a mans old short sleeve dress shirt.  I was too in a hurry to get to the reconstruction of the shirt to take a before picture, sorry.  But it is just your basic short sleeve button up shirt with a pocket on the left breast. 









I moved the pocket to the lower left side.  I used left over pieces from the sleeves and such to do all the detail around the neck and waist.

Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sun Dress/long shirt, to chase my winter blues away. on: January 29, 2010 01:32:44 PM
I finally got some ispiration from this ugly old skirt I had lying around from some old clothes that were bought strictly for halloween type of activities.

I made this dress out of an old skirt.   I made the belt out of a waist of a pair of corduroys.

Back

Front belt detail.

Back of belt detail.

You can also wear the belt around your lower waist hip area too.

This dress can likely also be worn with jeans or any pants.


I added a pin for cleavage scrunch if it is wanted or not wanted it can be taken off.


Pin detail.  You can use any pin you would like.  You can also use this trick with any tube top i'm sure.

Thanks for looking.
