21  L men's top to cute tank (more pix than neccessary) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by h0p31355 on: May 19, 2009 04:30:12 PM
I recently was out shopping and bought a few big baggy men's shirt for $5 a piece.  For this one I didn't have quite enough of the original shirt to make the side panels, so I used leftovers from another shirt (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=305362.0)

This is my first proper recon, and I cheated by cutting out the shirt with a pattern (Simplicity 2998, B).  Thanks for looking  Grin

23  Burda 7647 A - 2 ways! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by h0p31355 on: May 17, 2009 01:30:46 PM
I've been working with some knits lately, and I'm starting to get used to it.  The pattern came with a different pattern for the dress, but I didn't like it, so I used A and lengthened it

Made from a stretchy, medium weight knit (excuse the bad photo)

I also left the tab off the front because I liked my gathers (boob shot)

And yesterday I finished this

Lightweight knot, very soft

24  First real recon - Ramones in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by h0p31355 on: February 19, 2009 07:59:11 PM
I've been meaning to recon some clothes for awhile, plus "practice" with this material for a shirt I have cut out.  The shirt was previously a men's large (it might have been an XL, I cut the collar off years ago, and lost the tag).  I used the "cross-over top" tute on whatthecraft

The top bit is some stretch knit jersey (I think it's jersey)

So here it is on my lovely friend.  It's old and faded and comfy Smiley

That's a rough line of where my body is inside the shirt

please ignore my face

I didn't do the worlds best sewing job, but I also didn't think it would turn out so wearable

25  Love of Bacon swap in New Swap Theme Ideas by h0p31355 on: January 12, 2009 11:42:00 AM
So already this year, I've been getting requests from family for bacon themed items.  I figure just about everyone loves bacon (and really, how could you NOT love bacon?).

I propose a swap for bacon lovers; 2 mediums and 2 smalls.  I would organize, so it would be limited to 24.

Any takers?  Grin

Here's some ideas/inspirations:

bacon shirt I made

Bacon scarf (found on google)

26  Bright green Kimono shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by h0p31355 on: January 12, 2009 07:37:04 AM
I bought this fabric awhile, and since I was going for sushi with my friend on Saturday, I decided I wanted a Kimono shirt just like this:

I didn't look at it before i left for the fabric store, so I ended up buying a costume pattern when I was out, only to discover the wonderful tutorial haha.  I ended up using madpimp's tute and here's how mine came out!

I didn't notice that it rode up until I uploaded my pictures this morning, so please excuse my white, white flesh

I used snaps instead of a zipper

27  Ting Tings Inspired shirts *pic heavy* in Stenciling: Completed Projects by h0p31355 on: December 27, 2008 03:33:37 PM
For my bf's cousin, I made 3 shirts inspired by songs by The Ting Tings.  I got the shirts at Michael's, so they were just plain and boxy.  I did a little bit of cute-ification to them as well.  The designs are hand painted on with fabric paint

"Traffic Light"
Don't you be a traffic light
No, not a traffic light

On the back:
Don't be a round about
No, not a round about

"That's not my name"
They call me Hell
They call me Stacy
They call me "her"
They call me Jane
That's not my name (x3)

They call me "quiet girl"
But I'm a riot
Mary, Joliesa
Alway the same
That's not my name (x3)
Are you calling me darling?
Are you calling me bird?

Here's the back with some lace detail

28  "Incredible" adult onesies in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by h0p31355 on: December 27, 2008 03:20:27 PM
The request from my bf's brother (Alex) and his fiance were to have adult onesies modeled after the Incredibles.  His has no feet, and hers does have feet.  They even fit perfectly!  The only thing I have to fix is Alex's collar, which ended up being baggy.

She put them on over her clothes as soon as she got the package open, and in the photo she's laughing.  She said "My pants are riding up and I don't even care!"

Alex posing.....the logo, belt and abs are a bit low, but once I fix the collar it might help.  He asked for abs, so I used a layer of 7oz quilt batting

We were joking that they might get married in them haha

29  Tweed jacket to classy slippers in Shoes: Completed Projects by h0p31355 on: December 21, 2008 09:43:15 PM
Some slippers I made for my bf's cousin.  I was going to buy new fabrics but tweed is expensive....the jacket I bought from Value Village was $6.99 which is awesome because I wanted them to look like a jacket anyway

I hand sewed the buttons on

I saved the elbow patches from the jacket, and hand stitched them onto the heels.  You can't see from the picture, but the suede had a punched out design of a winged bug on it Smiley

Thanks for looking

30  Peppermint Kisses in Dessert by h0p31355 on: December 21, 2008 07:13:38 PM

Peppermint meringues; I made mine the size of a loonie.  These are really easy and cheap AND festive!  I got the recipe for these from a magazine, which I will share with you here:

Peppermint Kisses
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp peppermint extract

red and green food coloring

Make a meringue with the sugar and whites, beating to medium-stiff peaks (beat the whites on high speed until they begin to get frothy, then slowly add in the sugar and keep whipping). Add the extract when the whites are ready, and mix on slow for a few seconds.

Prepare a piping bag (plastic disposable would be best) with a large round tip. Using a clean (or new) paint brush, brush lines of food coloring inside the piping bag. I find 2 red and 2 green is enough, otherwise they tend to blend and get brown instead. Fill the piping bag with the meringue (or do a few times if it's a small bag, washing and re-striping each time), and pipe small blobs, aprox 1" diameter, onto a tray covered with parchment paper. They can be close together, since they won't get any bigger.

Bake at 200F for 30 minutes, then reduce the oven temp to 175F for another 40 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave meringues in until they dry out (another 10-20 minutes depending in the size). If you're not sure if they're dry, eat one, and if they feel gummy inside they're not ready. When they're ready they'll be dry when you bite in, but melt in your mouth.  Store them in a cool place in an air-tight container

Enjoy  Grin
