1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A Much Better Sweater ... Goodbye UGLY embroidery on: June 15, 2009 11:12:01 AM
Started with this sweater, though the colour was great, the embroidery not so much. I ripped it out before thinking to take a photo, but I'm sure you've had the unfortunate chance of seeing something similar.

Anyways here is the sweater once I've ripped it all out. There were a lot of holes, some actual rips from the process, so I decided to cover it in a fabric I found a long time ago at a thriftstore.
I think it's pretty cool, too bad it's sweltering now. ooh well.

Tada! Wink
2  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Metal-like Tags w/ Leaf Motif on: June 15, 2009 11:04:46 AM
Not long ago I was setting up a reception for a friend's wedding. The candle centrepieces came with these tags around the candles on string. I set them aside figuring I could do something with them. The only notion I have had yet is something with scrapbooking. But I don't scrapbook, and don't intend on it. So I'm hoping someone will have a brilliant idea?

Thx! Cheesy
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Green/White/Brown Retroy-Jersey Dress! on: November 21, 2008 11:50:33 AM
Here is my first fully successful no-pattern dress. I usually under-estimate and end up with too snug frocks. I got the material for a couple bucks cause it is misprinted in a few spots, but I don't mind!
I'm planning on wearing it with a belt because the waistline is a little lower than ideal and puckered. Oh well! I consider it good for just winging it! I will wear it to a friend's wedding tomorrow. Hopefully I can get a better picture before I leave as these are not top notch.

Tada!  Cheesy
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Glass Mosaic Tray on: September 05, 2008 11:45:36 AM
Hello there!  Grin

My Mom brought home a ugly thing that was probably supposed to be one of those folky wooden calenders from the thrift store. (No offense to folky calendars. lol) Anyways, she is also a clerk at a mosaic/tile company, they make very expensive products so their waste is HUGE, they don't use anything with even a TINY imperfection (I know well cause I worked there for two summers doing glass/kiln checking). She brought home a few boxes a year or two ago.

I used a fleur-de-lis not because I have any particular obsession for quebec or france, but just because I like it, lol. I suppose the theme my mum is going for is 'french country' really losely though. haha.

I didn't take any before, but it was pretty basic, wooden and all scrated, and lots of glass mosaic tile rejects.

5  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Behold Ye Glorious Cat Tower! on: September 05, 2008 11:26:22 AM
Hello! I rarely post on craftster, but I'm always lurking!

I've quit my job and havn't found a new one yet, so I've been keeping myself busy by making lots of stuff.
I used a builder's tube, some cheap remnant carpet, no-more-nails, a staple gun, a few screws, half circles of MDF (for the stairs inside), some power tools and lots of help from my dad.

And one kitty being a vulture, as we like to say. She follows me around all day and watches me. spy.

And also a bed I made quite a while ago but never posted.

And just for fun, the other kitty, she prefers to use the bed rather than the tower. Roll Eyes Oh well.

Yay!  Cheesy

i forgot to mention since it is indeed almost 7 foot tall it is in no danger of falling over. My Dad created a  good base which is only partially seen!
6  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Metalocalypse on: December 17, 2007 05:28:20 AM
So after purchasing Season One for my brother for Christmas, and getting him cologne for his Christmas Eve birthday (which definitely must suck), I decided to make him a Metalocalypse tee.

This is the first time I have used bleach, it bled more than I anticipated, but I fixed some details with permanent marker. Next time I will use a thick bleach instead of spraying it on. I used the fantastical freezer paper method for the stencil.

P.s. Metalocalypse is a cartoon, I believe from [adult swim], just in case you hadn't heard of it.
Here it is!

And this is what it should have looked like:

Merci, and have a nice day. It's a definite snow day here. Smiley
