11  halterneck / wrap / tops ive made in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by tiggyjn on: August 07, 2007 01:48:29 PM
righty then,
number 1- HALTERNECK AND WRAPEROUND top, what an idea. actually was suprisingly easy and im pleased with it tho does need a couple of little tuks taken maby. Its some pretty blue flowery material i brought that morning and strips of brown cotton to bind it. i might try making this again, tho in stretchy fabric and then not bother with darts. maby. it has super long ties. ties at back of neck and also one goes right around waist then ties at back or side.



tie detail:

top number two: my wear-all-the-time halternck.
simply made from a big tshirt, a little sheering elastic.. and thats it really.

top 3: made this from material from an old stretchy nasty beach dress thing. made pattern by looking at shapes of a top i already had, and amazingly it worked! doubt i would have got away with my terrible cutting if it wasnt so stretchy, i love this fabic:D   it has a wrapover detail bit at the front, and ive bound the edges with strips of the same material, but left the bottom unhemmed cos im lazy.

comments/questions welcome! my first clothing post:)

12  fused plastic bags, so fun! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tiggyjn on: August 07, 2007 12:52:44 PM
hello peoples, ive been inspired by loads of stuff on here so time i posted a project i think..
i read a few posts about plastic bag fusing, and made these , yesterday and today.

the first one, well i had lots of red blue and white, so went for a union jack on the front of the bag, and the back has words like 'recylcle' and 'save the environment' cut out of bags. The sides/base/handles are mostly white with red and blue bits on. im not happy with the handles really, they dont feel comfy to hold. i think ill be taking them off and swapping for some fabric handles maby, any ideas?

this is the second one ive done, feeling a bit more adventurous, tryed to do a pic. made and cut out the sections but not sewn it together yet. this ones for my friends bday Smiley

i noticed on some tutorials people had sugested covering printed plastic bags with clear plastic bags to stop the ink and getting messed up. but i found, if ur not doing text, its easyer just to put the bits of printed bag face down, and the colour still comes through. just my tip .

anyway hope you like, and that the pics work.
