Hello everyone,

Since I started sewing stretchy fabric .. I'm addicted now !... I went all over my town and couldn't find much of a selection of stretch fabrics Sad Angry  I went to3 stores and Finally Wal Mart of all places had some pretty awesome .. purple and blue news paper collage print stretch fabric .. id actually been eye balling it for a while but never actually touched it , and didn't realize it was stretchy  Embarrassed  Cheesy , I'm glad I finally did .. so I bought a bunch ! and here is my first .. projest with it ..tell me what you think ...
its a pretty simple tank .. I used some cool stretch knit lime green binding for the top and left the bottom surged ..

some close ups .. the cam doesn't do the colors justice .. they are really bright !

thanks for looking !
have a great day

272  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Stair way to a skulls mouth? on: July 21, 2007 10:13:56 AM
Hello ,
 well .. since I finally attempted sewing 2 way stretch fabric .. and it turned out pretty good .. i decided to combine a small scrap of stretch camo .. i had with a previously failed T shirt recon .. ( where i was only left with the front of the shirt salvageable )...
then I added bright green Binding .. I really like .. what do you think ?

and some close ups of the actual shirt print .. its a Halloween design of a stair was to a skulls mouth ...

thanks so much for looking
Have a great day/night
273  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / LPCOD: little peacock Christmas Ornament dress on: July 19, 2007 06:02:14 PM
hello everyone ,
   Ive been wanting to work with with 2 way and 4 way stretch fabrics, but haven't had the opportunity and .. didint want to waste money .. if for some reason it was really hard to work with ...any way .. I didint even realize that i already had some in my stash  Embarrassed Wink ..I found it today by accident and even though the print isn't my first choice I decided to use it as practice .. and I actually kinda like the results and my bF especially does ..
 tell me if you guys think it looks OK ..

the print is some weird like blue peacock feathers with what kinda look like red Christmas ornaments and some other type of leaf .... T tried to make a sorta Little black dress .. ( but not black ) .. i didint have a pattern but based the size off a favorite old tank ..( also i know the fabric being white and all is a lil see through ish  Embarrassed .. so it will most likely be worn as a nightie ..plus its really comfortable

I used some knit binding for the top .. but just left the bottom surged

The fabric was a bit tough to work with ( possibly because I was down to literally one machine needle and it was kinda huge ..my surger worked great .. but for reinforcing the seams on the regular machine .. I had to use paper .. Ive never papered seams before and I'm not even sure if I did it correctly ( BUT IT WORKED )  Wink Smiley Cheesy Grin I just used regular printer paper
here is a pic

and here is a sorta close up of the fabric ..

thanks so much for looking and Id really love some feedback on this one ..being that its My first time working with this fabric...

Have a wonderfull night/day
274  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Quick Camo skirt on: July 18, 2007 11:11:50 AM

the back pockets have SUPER STRONG ! Velcro closures .. nothings falling outta these babys!

oh and the bottom edge is finished with 2 rows of stitching ..but raw beneath that .. so there will be a cute fray to the bottom after its been washed ...
275  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Girl on a motorcycle .. and much much more ! on: July 18, 2007 11:05:12 AM
Hello everyone ...
 Ive been super buisy lately .. so tell me what you think of my efforts...

first off girl on a motorcycle ..
this fabric has tattooed girls on motorcycles and says stuff like vrooom and woosh

and me on my scooty puff Jr !

close up of the new neck line ( I finally did one a lil different)
plus I made the cool charm on my necklace

the back .. with the white grommet tape !

Valentines day Singles corset .. with lots o lace
this one is a little big on me .. plus its not tied correctly in thees pics either ...

I also made another pirate corset .. pretty much the same as the last only this one has some different details such as the octopus applique and features an awesome new strap closure that was my bf's Idea ..( necklace closure! )

I came across this recently .. I actually made it for new years 2003 I think ..It is ALL hand sewn .. and I'm actually pretty impressed at how well it looks .. I guess my hand sewing skills were much neater .. when needle and thread was all I had

its a shiny super soft velvet with a lace pattern of black and putter/silver.. its really hard to photograph
it also has a necklace for the top part ..

side view

back . it would look cuter If I weren't wearing a bra .. lol

well thanks so much for looking ..
 Id love feedback
 Have a great day/night
276  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Project runway sewing table recon on: July 18, 2007 09:14:50 AM
 I know PR is old news but I recently ( last month )switched from satelite .. so Now I'm seeing episodes for the first time ... any way I noticed in the back ground of some of the shots .. there were large canvases covered with pattern pieces .. I thought it looked really cool and since I have quite a few old patterns for thing Ill never make I figured why not decoupage my sewing Table .. so tell me watcha think ..



with my machines

and a close up

thanks so much for looking
Have a great day/night

 the light spots arent really AS light .. as they are in these pics ...also I may add a few more layers off pattern pieces for even more texture .. when I get some more decaupage medium ..
277  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / HillBilly Bib-afore ...10 min project ! on: July 08, 2007 01:14:41 PM
Hello everyone!

     OK OK First things first...Pinafores are really NOT My cup of tea ! they look cute on a lot of people but ..not really my style ..But they do seem to be excessively popular lately .. and since I was given a large stash of bibs ( which I do not wear either ) I decided to whip up a quick " BiB-Afore" for fun and practice .. which Ill prolly pawn off on someone ..lol .. any way it took literally like 10 min to make! and it did turn out kind cute " I think" what are your opinions ??

before ( oh yeah can you believe I remembered a before pic!)

10 min. later

close up of the cute fabric !

close up of me lol! Wink acting like a hillbilly!

thanks for looking
 Have a great day/night

p.s. sorry there is no back shot .. my cam bateries died .. before I got one .. but it just looks like a regular bib back ...
278  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Pink poka dots and skulls ! on: July 06, 2007 01:10:46 PM
Hello ! Smiley
   I finally broke into my stash  Wink ( aka 1 yard ) of pirate skull fabric .. I really wanted to make it stretch so ... ofcorse ( I'm sure your getting sick of them by now Embarrassed But Damn I love making them . Grin.) corsets ! lol... so here they are ..
I'm really happy with the pink one because I made my own binding outta some remaining pink poka dot fabric ... But I didint have quite enough so I'm gonna just use a lil plain black to finish of the back to panels .. I think it will be OK ..what do you guys think ??
also I used some store bought Cluny lace for the details on the all black and skull one ..
 Please tell me what you think !  Wink

I lined them both with this cute camo flannel ( I dunno why but I love sewing flannel ! lately )

Thanks for looking  as always ! Have a great day/night

279  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Road trip Hat .. with pic heavy tute ! pix fixed! on: June 27, 2007 05:22:54 PM
Hello everyone ,
 I'm obsessed with making hats now ..So I made another one this time for my sister(Anda) , we are infamous for getting lost every single time we take a road trip , so I made her an official road trip hat to wear an those occasions , I used some really great road sign flannel ...I also made a pictorial tute .. so I'm sorry for the excess of photos , I just find pics alot easier to understand than purely written directions...

 So here we go ...

first here are the pattern pieces you need , the top /circle, the crown , the brim and the brim insert

you must cut 2tops , 2 brims and 2 crowns ,

Now you sew the sides of the each crown giving you a inner and outer crown piece .. you then pin the top to the crown like so

stitch and now you have a cap!

make your inner and outer caps insert them into one another and stitch ( this is when a serger comes in very handy

Now sit the cap aside and begin work on your brim ..

stitch the sides of the brim the same way as the crown .. and make 2 ( inner and outer) this is also where you add your brim insert for stability

now stitch the brims together around the outer edge.. and flip right side out , then Iron and pin in place like this

now its time to do your rows of top stitching around 10 rows will be needed.. to give the quilted effect and add structure

then simply attach brim to cap and WA la there you have it a super quick and simple fishermans hat

inner view of liner

thanks so much for looking and I hope the tute is easy enough to understand fell free to ask if you need anything explained better ( ill try my best )
Id really love to see any of you versions of this hat so please post if you make one !

Have a great day/night
280  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / my very first HAT! on: June 26, 2007 08:36:30 PM
Hello everyone,
    The other day i was at the dollar store and I found a Fishermans Hat with great anchor fabric  ..I didint like the fabric at all for a hat but I wanted it to make some wrist cuffs and a patch out of it..so i bought it for the material . then before I cut if up I thought of My boy friends sister ( Linda) - She always wears fishermans style hats ..and she had just commented on how she liked some semi-asain cartoonish- fabric I had .. so I decided to take the hat apart by picking all the stitches and then made a hard pattern .. so i can keep it and make more .... if she likes it here it is my first attempt at a Fishermans Hat.

Warning .. I don't look good in hats !

here is the pattern and original hat

I lined it with the same fabric

here are some close ups .. modeled by mt latest severed head.( she dosnt have a name yet, and she came with the lovely marker tattoo and half an eye ! )

I also sandwished a layer of thick fabric in the brim for more stability..

This is my very first ever attempt at hat making so Id really really love some feed back .. All openions and suggestions welcome..

If she likes this one I'm thinking of making another out of really nice brocade..
thanks for looking
 Have a great night/day
