1  Attitude is Everything, Darling. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fogtom on: January 20, 2005 06:11:46 PM
I got bored today (mid-terms week, half day) and so I found a sweatshirt for my school district in my house and on the front it said "Attitude is Everything" and I liked it and cut it out and put it on my hoodie and got a little crafty..


I apologize for the drab expression on my face in each picture. I had no idea my head would be in the shot.


That was my attempt to take the picture of the back myself.

Then my sister agreed to take it.

Anyways, thank you for looking and feedback is always appreciated!!

2  messanger bag. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by fogtom on: January 09, 2005 03:53:56 PM
Hey, today I was feeling crafty so I dug through some more of my aunts fabric she gave me and made a really nice messanger bag completely from scratch. None of the fabrics match since there wasn't enough of any of them to actually make an entire bag but I think it came out nice.

Thanks for looking.
Feedback is appreciated.

3  Plain black t-shirt reconstructed. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by fogtom on: January 08, 2005 07:55:32 PM
Hey kiddies, I was sick earlier today and so I took a nap. When I woke up I had bursts of creativeness surging through me so after writing and drawing didn't satisfy me I decided ot dig through my closet and the heaps of fabric my aunt gave me for Christmas and go to work.

Out of my closet I picked out a really really boring plain black t-shirt I got from Old Navy over the summer and I never really liked it so I hardly wore it because of how plain it was.

That's the shirt before I cut it up...

(Please ignore my crazy make up, I would say the same for my hair but it's always big/messy like that..  Embarrassed haha)

All I did to the shirt was chop off the original collar and sew on that one and then I added a bow from the same fabric on the right shoulder side. On the bottom left hip I added a heart patch to corver this itsy bitsy hole that you could hardly notice but whatever, that's my excuse haha.

I hope you like it Smiley.
It only took a bout an hour to create.

4  Plaid Skirt [Edit:modified the skirt, more pics.] in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by fogtom on: September 08, 2004 07:12:36 PM
Hey this is my third post on craftster and my first project I sewed from a blank canvas that actually came out good Smiley.  I still need to make a few adjustments (such as shortening it a bit and adding white tule underneath and making the waistband smaller so it fits better since right now it's a bit big). I'm not nearly as gifted with sewing as any of you on here but I still try haha. I got the tutorial from someone who posted not to long ago. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12439.0 that's the link. Umm well here's my skirt (by the way my aunt got the material from her visit to Scottland or something).

I may end up posting updated pictures after I make the adjustments but for right now this is what I've got.


So I added some tulle underneath. I decided to go with bright green instead of white. I also decided to make a slip instead of actually attatching the tulle to the skirt incase I want to put the tulle under another skirt or wear the skirt without it. I did 5 layers of this green tulle and it was pretty frustrating trying to keep track of it all to sew it onto the waistband so I wouldn't suggest tulle for any begining sewers such as myself. Also instead of having to make the waistband smaller I decided to cut two holes one on each side of the waistband and put a ribbon in threw it with a bobkin (I think that's what their called??). And I also decided not to shorten it. I wrapped teh ribbon around again after it came out from the holes so thats why there's a line in the middle of the waistband but I decided not to wear it like that again but I can't take any more pictures since my picture takers (my twin 8 year old sisters who do anything their big 14 year old sister says Smiley) are asleep. So here it is Smiley.
