1  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Plush Mouse - Made from a T-Shirt and Knitting Wool on: September 13, 2012 02:14:32 AM
Just wanted to quickly share a little project I made a couple of months back. It's a plush mouse that I made out of sleeves from a top that I altered with some plaited wool for it's tail.

Back again for another post. This time, my mum found me the gorgeous pink top as you can see below. The only problem was - not that it was from an op shop - someone had decided to cut a small rectangle piece from the back of the top (at the bottom).

So, I rummaged through my material stash and found the lovely lace, removed 2 to 3cm off the bottom of the top and attached the lace. However, I felt that the top now looked a tad out of place by itself, hence the lovely lace bolero/shrug(?).

The bolero/shrug(?) was based on a simple top pattern I had lying around and I just shortened it here and there so it would still resemble a bolero/shrug(?).

Very happy with how this has turned out considering the small amount of time I've had lately to actually finish these off.

Thank you and ENJOY Smiley

Yep that sounds like something I'd do too - find a GREAT piece of fabric and end up using it one to two years later  Huh

The design looks very much suited to the gorgeous patterns on the fabric, fantastic work Smiley

Hi all, long time lurker, first time poster.

Here's my contribution of what I have created:
First up is this dress which I started at one of those Spotlight dressmaking classes and failed to finish it by the last lesson (It was made from a NewLook 6644 pattern). A year or two goes by and I FINALLY finish it - side zip and all Cheesy

Second is this dress my mum picked up in an op shop. It was made by someone else. All I did was shorten it but I thought I'd show it here considering how funky the material looks.

Lastly, this pinafore was the first thing I made after finding out about this community. Oh and you'll have to excuse the curtain, I wanted to cover up the chest area considering the black felt on that particular area had worn away - meaning if you look at it from afar, it has nipples.

Thank you and enjoy Cheesy
