FYI... because I found out by doing this... If you chop those jeans off into a skirt-yoke, they will fit. That's because the legs are gone, and the crotch is not  affecting the fit anymore. Cut off the waistband too, add a fabric tie to the top, re-finishing off the edge. Then, sew a skirt on the jeans made of a soft, silky, or knit type fabric. A sheer cotton is good for this. Try to avoid quilters cottons... they are too stiff for this. It can even be a tiered swirly skirt, but if you need to wear it right away, that will take longer.
  I have one that will be finished in the near future. I just have the two halves to join together. (But I'm busy with knitting right now)
I hope you try this with at least one pair!

*waves* I'm still here.  Ive had a lot of stuff thrown at me in the past few weeks, so my crafting has slowed.  I hope to have a little cross-stitch done by the end of next week (and frame the other one I completed in Jan) so I'd have two completed projects.

I keep coming up with new things to fill in my list, I hope I actually get to do them.

It's time to update this thing!  Finished projects are struck through, in progress are in italic.  I've provided links to my finished projects wherever I've actually posted them to Craftster

50 Projects in 2010 List, for Corvus.  I find it helps to poke through my stash to fill out this list, as well as my design notebooks.

1)  Find a job.  It's not crafty, but it'll sure help pay for the crafty habit. I have an interview next week that I'm absolutely ecstatic to get- wish me luck/advice/success!
2) DNA Knucks!
3) Knit a Pirate illusion scarf.  I've designed it (and it's my first illusion chart), now I just have to give it a shot.
4) Knit a green Versatility.  My last attempt failed and was frogged- damn you, bobbles!
5) I want to sew a drawstring purse that looks like a cartoon moneybag, complete with big dollar symbol.  This is my recent secret ambition.
6) Finish my rainbow pride dress, which I started like five years ago.
7) Crochet a floppy cloche hat.  This is an accomplishment because I don't know how to crochet.
8 ) Knit a sweater.  Options include Vivian and the Owl Sweater.  I need the yarn first, though, which requires #1.
9)  Sew my thrifted heart fabric into a wrap dress.
10) Sew some of the fabric I brought back from Tanzania into the wrap skirt from Weekend Sewing.
11)  Reconstruct my pirate shirt using grey and black striped fabric.
12) Reconstruct my scuba shirt into long tunic hoodie.
13) Reconstruct thrifted Egypt shirt into t-shirt dress.
14) Make the new jade and “bamboo” choker I already have the beads for but haven't finished.
15) Finish transforming my current lot of micro machines into necklaces.
16) Knit a Star Crossed Beret.
17) Knit a Prosperous Plum or similar tank (perhaps the Razor Cami).  Lower the neckline a bit if it's the former.
18) Sew a giant body-pillow-esque squid or octopus out of fleece, for The Octopus Project.
19) Reconstruct glow-in-the-dark chandelier shirt.
20) Make a patchwork scarf or eight.
21) Make an attempt at nature-themed leather jewelry.  Leather's a new field for me.
22) Attempt a leather mask.  
23) Reconstruct red Canadian Olympics shirt into a hoodie with lining.
24) Reconstruct ribs shirt.
25) Sew a purple plaid pleated skirt.  Yay, alliteration!
26) Knit my first pair of socks.
27) Knit my second pair of socks.
28) Knit opera gloves.
29) Make more polymer clay buttons.  Maybe sell some.
30) Make a super hero shirt out of knit fabric and appliqué.
31) Appliquéd skull shirt.
32) Reconstruct tiger shirt into hoodie with ears.
33) Make a fleece animal hat.  I'm leaning towards panda.
34)  Put together a scrapbook/album for the Stanley Livingstone Expedition before all the papers get destroyed or lost.
35) Put together a general travel scrapbook/album.
36) Get general life album up to date.
37) Embroider cuttlefish shirt.
38) Finish embroidering Chinatown shirt.
39) Sculpt more polymer clay skull + roses pieces.  They seem popular.
40) Make a torc.
41) Make more polymer clay cephalopod jewelry.
42) Appliquéd octopus shirt for the octopus project.
43) Needle-felted octopus, for the octopus project.
44) Felt appliqué octopus, for the octopus project.  Catching a theme here?
45) Finish Sea Monster painting.
46) Finish octopus painting (of course).
47) Finish at least 5 watercolor paintings.
48) Finish at least 3 oil paintings.
49)  Finish forging a dagger to match my sword.  I started it a while ago, but it's just so inconvenient to set up the forge.
50)  List the vast majority of this stuff on ye olde etsy shoppe, so I don't drown in it all.

51) Regularly post free embroidery patterns to the blog for a year.
52) Embroider some of my patterns

I wish we had teleporters so I could teleport all of you gals some fabric. I'll keep working on building one  Wink I went through a few of the boxes and found some really fun fabric, including some to turn into quilts for donations. I'd share pics, but I'm being held prisoner by my cat thinking that my arm belongs to her. Kinda like the sewing machine.

Do you have this project of creating a teleporter on your list of 50? lol
Let me know when you have it complete and be sure to add directions because I would like to teleport myself somewhere else... or at least teleport the people I don't care to be around somewhere else!  Wink

This all sounds very good to me. Fabrics & teleporting. I love it all. I do need to find some material to back the two twin quilts for my nieces. They are very picky about their blankets. I was thinking microfiber or a short hair faux-fur? Any of you quilters have any suggestions? I'm not sure how well it will go over with the quilting process and my machine. Undecided
