Despite the fact we probabaly already know ryanmoore won "Project Threadbanger" this month, I figured I'd post my 3rd place entry (3rd for the long contest, 4th for the whole month - I never got a chance to enter the short contest)

Only 1st place for the month wins a prize, but I'm still pretty proud XD

Here was the challenge:
Long challenge - Make a shirt, jacket, hoodie, coat or dress out of something that isn't originally intended to be clothing. This can include around the house textiles, such as curtains, table cloths or bed sheets, or even something more creative.

I used a multitude of old magazines (pictured below) and two rolls of "Adhesive Film" (Which I basically warn you to not work with to make clothing unless you have to ^^; It's a pain.)


I made a vest first, but the challenge called for a jacket, so I had to add sleves. But personal I love it as a vest - and is wayyy more comfy. Note the "D.I.Y."!


With sleeves:


Back:


Pretending to sell stuff XD It'd be so awesome if you could stash sewing supplies in this thing... but I think that might hurt Oo


I tried to pick articles that delt with contests, DIY fashion, and recycling. The basis of Threadbanger ^^

What do you think?

Looks amazing! I'd applaud with a smilie, but it seems we lack a clapping one. Kudos for keeping the cuttings with the theme Smiley

*hehe, anyone else notice how the bottom magazine is pretty appropriately placed?*

that's incredible! i can imagine it would be more comfortable without the sleeves (i think it looks cuter without, too. ^^)

Sweet. Smiley Usually I am not a fan of vests, but that is just so cool! Very creative. I wonder if there is a way to make a hoodie that would look similiar to that, if not neccessarily made out of the same materials...  In any case, pick me, pick me! I want one Cheesy

hummm *ponders*
Is there any iron-on transfer paper that sort of soaks into the fabric? I know they're usually pretty plastic-y and stick on top :S

but if you could find good & large sheets of transfer paper, I'm sure you could scan some magazine ads and such - they print them on the transfer paper. Then iron onto the fabric - and use the fabric with a pattern to make a hoodie ^^
But sadly it does seem more work than it's worth Sad
but let me know if anyone figures anything out! Wink
