i'm new here ( i posted a thread in the "introduce yourself" section already ) and i promised i'd post what i've made so far.

since finding craftster a few days ago, i've made these three things. sorry it's image heavy...

i refashioned one of my little brother's skater polo shirts into a pinafore style top. sorry i don't have the before pictures for any of these... :



and side detail:



thinking of adding buttons to the part where the straps connect to the shirt. any opinions? i don't know what color to use if i do...

and then i made a purse out of a tank top that was waaaaaay too small for me. i use it much more often now than when it didn't fit me... and it was very simple, all i did was sew up the bottom and it already had built-in handles!


and


and then here's the skirt i made out of a tablecloth and some pink fabric. it's a side close with a working button :



and i cut a star out and sewed it on for decoration:





button!




well, that's what i have done so far...

working on more things still though. will post again soon!

all i wanted was a good song and a fair friend. you came along just then. you gave me crazy love and you whispered, "you've got a bottle and nobody that you're missing."

thanks!

yeah, the fabric was a bit too busy for a shirt, but as a purse, it's pretty sweet.
