What's Up Craftsterholics?
I moved AGAIN.
I counted, it's the 18th time I've moved. And in a week and a half I'll be moving AGAIN ((We moved into my parent's house for the moment until the other house we are moving into is empty))
I've been like a gypsy. Oh and I shaved my head! So some of these pics are me with blue hair, then with a chelsea, and some with no hair at all!
Here's what I've been up to. I hope i'm not reposting anything!
I reconstructed this tee I bought my dear sweet husband who wore it like twice, then saw someone else wearing it and refused to wear it again, into a skirt!
It's so comfortable!
I had serious issues trying to figure out how to sew the diagonal lines together. I was serious kamikaze sewing, not really thinking things through, and just cutting bits out and hoping they'd turn out! I think it did!
This one was fun! I'd cut up a black doona cover one day when I was in desperate need of some plack fabric, and only had the ends left. I stitched elastic through the top of it, and left it a huge rectangle. I appliqued two zebra-print lovehearts onto the front ((or back, or side, wherever I want to wear it)) and then simply undid the snaps! YES! Those white dots are the snaps that keep your donna inside the cover!
I have an idea to make a bag similar to this, that can be worn as a skirt.
By the way, these are the leftovers of my 31 skirts project some of you might remember! I never did get around to finishing it, as I hopped between my parents and my in-laws and my home and hospital for a few weeks. Nowhere near my beloved but tempermental sewing machine!
I cut up an old sweater of my mum's that was SILVER and white. I loved the print on it though. I lined it with white jersey because it was a bit see-through. Unfortunately this is too tight on me. I made a little bow to go on the front too.
Poo what stinks? Nothing actually, I don't know why I was holding my nose.
This is just using up scraps in my scrap bin. Red + Purple jersey stitched together. It's the same on the back too.
Again I used a tee of Tim's. I did one half the tee, the other half just plain black stretch jersekyknit. The front I used a big metal zipper. I don't love this skirt.
I made the top from scratch when I was pregnant. I used striped stretchknit for the back, and white for the front and I painted a ribcage onto it. I didn't hem it or finish the armholes or neck either, so it has little ladders in it, which I love!
The skirt Is a big tutu skirt like what I've always made! This pic is from a photoshoot I did with my friend's dad. He took pics of Vinnie too wearing a bandanna the colour of my hair. Way too cute.
Probably SHOULDN'T have worn a black bra underneath this. Oh well! I cut up two shirts I had. One Barbie one, and one love-heart one, and made it into this cute skirt with suspenders! I added lots of lace + white ricrac
I've already sold this one! The top part is from a teal shirt, and the rest I reconstructed. It's got heart pockets similar to the heart in the skirt above! I really liked this one, but I am trying to sell as much stuff as I can ((not for money, just to get a good sturdy name for myself to start with))
Reconstructed from a black + purple striped tee that said Follow My Heart on it in Silver. I made loveheart pockets + a loveheart keyhole at the neck! I trimmed it all in black ruffled lace + black satin ribbon-bows!
Patrick the Starfish! I think some of you might remember my Spongebob Squarepants hoodie I made a few years ago? That got stolen remember? Well, here's another one! The sleeves are 3/4 and it has a big black hood and a full-black back.
I found this cute skirt at Lifeline. It was long and a weird shape, so I cut it short + made the scraps into a ruffle! Tank Girl FTW
I'm going to post the rest of the stuff I made on the Children's boards, because I've been super inspired by very own living-doll, my son!
