Trying to keep it gold...

I have yet to use the actual fabric part, but I've done headbands with the straps, and I've been using the underwire parts (the ones that pop out making the bra unusable/uncomfortable)-- Sometimes I give them a coat of paint, string 2 together, one a few inches above the next, & use them as a base for mobiles. I did two for Halloween last year-- 1 with ghosts & 1 with bats. People loved them, & no one knew.

All the goo we use, reviewed!

I salvage my old ones for parts-- the fabric from the cups is great for applique (I don't have any padded or lined, but that would probly work even better), and the straps and findings are super useful for Random Sewing Stuff (RSS).  

I also keep some of the better findings for when I someday sew my own damn bra.  Please nobody hold their breath on that one (I'd love to see someone else's pics, who's done it!).

Here is what I made from my undies! This is a horrid photo, but... It is a bag to hold my "feminine supplies." I made two crazy quilt squares, then sewed them onto fabric and made the bag-- a la Jordy's messenger bag tutorial! (but without the strap because it will stay in my bathroom cabinet)

I only used my blue undies, so I still have more to use!  Grin

Ooooh, that's such a pretty bag, thixle (and I just love crazy quilts)! Great use of undies! I don't think you should just keep it in your bathroom cabinet! Parade it around town! Cheesy
How big is it? Can it fit inside your purse?

Oh, MissRoo-- I should have said it's for the storage of my supplies... It's about 10 inches tall and 13 inches wide (big enough for a sizeable purse or book sack). Anyway, it now holds my *new* cloth pads and my extra disposables.

And, my bathroom cabinet is see-through, so anyone privileged enough to use my potty will see it  Grin

OK, it would be pretty cool if you wanted to be extreme, because you could kind of make a big sculpture out of them. You know this crazy modern art stuff. Sells for millions.  Wink  Otherwise, if your mind is as warped as mine, you go to the nearest art museum and when no one's looking, put the bras onto naked statues.

Um, hi everyone, I'm sarah, and I'm a craftaholic...

Ok, I took MissRoo's advice (again, lol) and made a smaller, matching bag to carry around. Here are the 2 undie bags, with my iron to show the size! The little bag was pretty hard to do because it just barely fit over my sewing machine "arm" thing.

Good sides:

Not-so-good sides:

Excellent, thixle!! Now you can show off your undies when you're out and about! Grin

Wow these turned out to be so pretty!  Nice color scheme :)  Hey if you are ever sewing something tiny like that again, and it won't fit over your sewing machine arm, sew it the other way... how can I describe this...  Ok imagine the bag is right side out.  If you shove it over the arm and sew it, you'll be sewing on the right side.  Ok so imagine, instead, having the foot of the machine on the INSIDE of the bag.  Then the circle of the bag's mouth is kind of up in the air and doesn't have to fit over anything. And you can sew the tiniest things that way, if you have the patience, heh.

Darn I wish I hadn't thrown out all that flowery underwear that didn't fit right!
