1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Sweeney Todd and video games. Could life get any better? IMG Heavy on: October 17, 2008 08:34:25 AM
Well, I finally got to fix my camera so I am uploading all of my recent crafts! Here are some quick shirts I did:

The first one is Sweeney Todd! It used to be a mens large white tee shirt; I just altered the sleeves and neckline and took it in. But for a fun little bonus....I put Sweeney on the corner! My family recently got a steam press and I was itching to try it out.  Cheesy

And just for kicks and giggles, here is a closeup of Sweeney. Jeez, that man is gorgeous!  Cheesy

And for my next recon, my whole family is in the video game industry so there are frequently a lot of free game shirts being passed around from conventions.  For this one, I just cut up the neckline to make it a boat neck style, added different sleeves, and put trim on the bottom.

Here is the front:

And the back:

The sleeves are equal size in real life; I just took this at a weird angle...

Thanks for looking!  Grin
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Little Mermaid and Nascar dresses on: July 28, 2008 02:06:52 PM
I made this Little Mermaid/puppy love dress a while ago but I just got around to taking pictures of it. It is the ultimate summer dress and I love the looks I get when I wear it in public  Cheesy

And now the Nascar dress! I bought the top part as a shirt a while ago and it didn't fit me right at all. So, I found the skirt fabric in my closet and I made this!

You can't see it but there are panels up the sides with the same fabric as the skirt. It also doesn't look all funky on the chest area on me

My problem with this one is that it seems like there is something missing, but I don't know what...any tips?
3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Nascar picture bag on: June 17, 2008 02:22:02 PM
I made this bag about a year ago. Basically what I did was I got a blank canvas tote, cut out pictures from my NASCAR magazines, and then covered them all with clear tape. I love this bag so much and it is really funny to see people's reactions to it when they see it!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Blue high-waist skirt on: June 17, 2008 02:15:32 PM
So, I have been a member of Craftster for almost a year now and I am just starting to post here. I guess you could call me lazy...

...anyways! This skirt was inspired by these two projects

and I came up with this! It took me about an hour and a half and I used fabric that I found lying around my sewing room.

Here it is on the sewing dummy:

And here it is on me!

Sorry about the crappy quality of the pictures; I lost my camera and I had to use my phone

Thanks for looking!
