1  dress shirt thing! + how to make it! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by barnes89 on: September 27, 2007 06:35:02 PM
So, I've recently found Burdastyle.com
and found these instructions on how to make a dress/shirt with no pattern- http://burdastyle.com/howto/show/65

and I did it! With the most gorgeous fabric I've ever seen (or close to it). I'm so happy!

It's a bit baggy, and the hem isn't even, but I wasn't going for perfection. It's kind of a thing where you do what fits best for you, so you can always bring it in easily, but I didn't.

I hope everyone else ventures into this project, too, as it's easy and fun!

2  'adapt' tote in Stenciling: Completed Projects by barnes89 on: September 21, 2007 05:21:33 PM
So, I decided to try stenciling, and I never have before. I looked through here to get an idea of what I was doing and found this: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=167444.0

I really loved Nesse's stencil and took it, thinking that I'd probably never get to it anyway. Then today, I got kind of bored (my band's playing a gig, and we still have a few more hours until we have to go...), decided to use the word "adapt" in a stencil project, remembered the umbrella and cloud, and put it all together. SO, here is how it turned out.

Not the best, but I like it very much. Thank you Nesse, and I hope you don't mind that I did it, too!

3  Travel Journal in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by barnes89 on: July 27, 2007 11:14:02 AM
My lovely little friend Kendall is leaving to go away to college next month, so I decided to make her a travel journal (which was actually more or less an excuse for me to make a book for the first time).

She loved it! We're both musicians, so we write a lot of music- she was excited to have a journal to not write any music in- just write her travels and adventures.

Here's how it turned out:

inside... (+bookmark)

back inside cover with map of California (she's staying within the state, so I told her that this way, she can always find her way home!)...

and this is how I put it all together...
