Way cute! It looks great on you!


I really need to do something like this with the big ugly pullovers I never wear!

It's pretty easy.  Only took me like an hour tops.

What an improvement! Smiley

Thanks! Cheesy

This is my first time reconstructing clothing.  Gotta admit, it was pretty fun. Cheesy


Started out with an old, huge sweater:

Sliced, diced:

Sewed together, added a button et voila~!  A cute shrug.

Woo Hoo! I love you! I've just started making plarn over the past week, and was wondering if I was barking up a useless tree, and you've just reinspired me!

Wewt!  I'm loved.  Grin

Thanks for the tip on the different brands for bags.  Just so ya know, you may want to stay away from Kroger bags.  They're insanely thin and a bit of a pain (it's the brown stripe in the middle of my bag).

You could also try making a rug out of plarn.  It might be nice for an outdoor type thing.  =)

i love it! my grandma was doing this 15 years ago and people thought she was crazy.  try cutting the plastic into wider strips and using a bigger hook to make it stronger.  also, certain stores have stronger bags.  target bags are much stronger than kroger or walmart bags.  and a wider shoulder strap won't stretch as much.  or make two straps to distribute the load.  hope that helps for the next one!

Wow, that's a long time ago.  LoL, my guy thought I was a bit crazy too.  He kept shaking his head... tehe

It's 2 straps right now... maybe I'll re-make the straps so they're wider to help with the load.  Thank you for the tip~!

Aw, sorry about being alone for the holidays.

Pretty necklace!  If it was a bit longer, that would totally rock as a belt or something to hang around the hips while wearing jeans. =)

Awesome work on the hat.  A pattern would be greatly appreciated in the future.  =P

I love this hat!  Great Design! Plus, anything that helps bust the stash is aces in my book. My stash is obscene.  I could open a yarn store. I guess I better get crocheting!

Same here.  I'm trying to figure out new projects to help get rid of it.
