so... i have had this old pink floyd shirt since before junior high, and it was my most favourite tee of them all. i wore it nonstop, and eventually it grew super nasty and what not. so i took it apart, and used two old comfy cotton tees to try make a clone. and boy am i pleased. it's insanely comfy, and i love it a tonnnn. it's nothing amazing in the creativeness area, but amazing in comfy-ness. so on with the photos!
the favourite tee, (now dead):
the two ginormous tees:
and yeah, like most of my tees, the neck is unfinished, just serged. i was planning on ribbing it or using some thing black lace, but i think i'll leave it just serged... for now.
thanks for looking! comments/criticism appreciated!
i saw laurasaurus's classy pleated clutch and fell in love. so, i kinda tried to make one myself, but i tried to make it deeper and less wide. it measures about 20 centimeters across the top, 28 across the bottom, and about 18 cms tall. i used some white and orange flower print tablecloth-y fabric, and plain white cotton scraps to line it.
it was my first time ever attempting to do pleats, and my first time doing a button hole. (i always make my mom do my buttonholes for me! haha.) i think it turned out pretty good. it's pretty wonky and uneven, but over-all good.
here are some photos!
comments and criticism welcomed and greatly appreciated! thanks for looking!
this is a shirt i made out of complete boredom and insanity. the tie-dye fabric is an old curtain that my friend stole from his church youth room for me. i used it to make a "murse" for him (man-purse/messenger bag).
well, there was a little left over, so i used it, along with some hot pink mystery fabric, to make a tee shirt. i just used my favorite cotton tee, and traced it for the pattern. then decided to add a little strip of the pink to the bottom and knot it on the sides. so here are some semi-decent pictures of the finished thing...
(i haven't quite cleaned up the neckline yet, but i kinda like the raw-ness of it all.)
scaramouche: you are so lucky to have gone to both those cathedrals! i can't wait to travel to england someday.
and clamwind: that sunset is gorgeous! just gorgeous!
these are just a few photos of me being bored this afternoon. it's the first semi-warm day we've had here in michigan for quite a while, so i took advantage of the dead stuff in my backyard. the photos look better in full version, so i'll post links to them too.
this was just the result of a long rainy saturday evening at home. it started out as a huge teeshirt. i have now clue where it came from, it just magically showed up in my basement one day. so i decided it'd be perfect for a tote for school folders and whatnot. so here's some photos. i just winged it, made it up as i went.
before. (with some extra junk in the photo. sorry! )
one side has the awesome guitar picture, that was on the back of the tee...
and the other, the small logo from the front of the shirt.
the inside has some crazy flower print cotton fabric, that i do believe my grandmother gave me quite a while ago.
it's got a nice sized square pocket on both sides, and one side has a little key fob/loop thinga-ma-jig. i'm always digging around for my keys, so i just gave them they're own little place to clip onto.
and here's an "action" photo, just for the heck of it. shows the size and what not.
it's gone through a ton of abuse already, i just love it to death. it turned out a lot better than i was planning. it's insanely sturdy, too.
oh, i'll try getting some better photos soon, too. these don't really show much detail, so i'll get working on that when i have access to daylight. personally, i just don't think these picture do it justice at all.

finally there has been a nice sunny day for me to snap a few pictures of what i made this weekend. nothing to fancy or anything, but i like them very much. everything is made out of glass seed beads, and wire. the bracelet i used regular sewing thread. anddd, this is my very first craft post! yay! ^_^
so here is what i came up with this saturday and sunday. (minus the big pink flower pin, i made that quite a few months ago, but thought i'd add it in here.)
here are the two rings...
one (my favourite) just has plain twisted wire in the back:
the other a snazzy stretchy string thing:(much more comfortable, might i add!)
then a simple daisy bracelet. i worked so hard on the ball and loop closure, but i hadn't even realized how tiny i made the loop. so i added a little hook thing for now. and with being made out of regular thread, i don't know how longs it's going to last, but it has so far.
and two most adorable little hair pins! the poor things haven't been worn yet, sadly.
i saw that post too, and made a couple of my own. here's a very bad picture one, not even completed. but oh well.
i'll try to look for the post. i thought i bookmarked it, but apperently i didn't. there might be a link in one of my PMs, but i don't have time to search through them all this morning. i've got to head off to school!
alright. i'm hoping i'm posting this in the right place.
so story goes, i bought this most snazzy plasic headband for 99 cents at the mall... and i broke it. as my friend and i were messing around with her nifty ol' hair straightener, she proclaimed "this thing could melt anything!" so, "lightbulb!", i stuck my headband up to it, and then tried to smush it back together. didn't work. so as ideas were popping in my head, i grabbed my daddy's lighter, for more presice melting. also didn't work. it's slowly getting shorter and melting away as i come up with new ideas to fix it, but i'm not ready to give up yet. i've also glued, and i'm looking for my hot glue sticks, but i can't find them.
anyone know how in the world to conveniently put a headband back together? i was so proud of my bargain buy, but it does no use when you can't wear it.
