61  Maternity tank + XXXL t-shirt into cute ruffle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: March 25, 2008 06:32:41 PM
I'm all about the ruffles lately! I made this skirt from a 3XL black t-shirt from the ac moore and a XS maternity tank top from target that was $2. I really just found a place in the tank that fit around my hips and then did some drawstring magic. This is my first attempt at buttonholes and they're awful, but you can't tell because the drawstring is so thick. Anyway here it is!

Thank you for looking! Smiley

62  Western shirt to Ruffled Red Jacket in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by charmingflaws on: March 24, 2008 02:15:13 PM
I pretty much love this. It started as a really big long sleeved western shirt from old navy. I took it in, then cut off most of the sleeves. It came with a thin belt, so I used that to trim the shorter sleeves, which I gathered (my first time trying that.) Then I cut the bottom shorter and sewed all the scraps (and I do mean ALL) into strips and sewed them into a big ruffle on the bottom. I like wearing it with the collar down, with my peacock belt.

(photobucket is being mean to me today so I'm just gonna go with links)



Thanks for looking and giving an opinion!

63  Mrs. Weasley's Clock!! (a bit heavy on the images) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by charmingflaws on: January 07, 2008 07:07:31 PM
I'm so completely proud of this.

I've wanted to make a Weasley clock for a while, ever since I found out you could buy the movie versions online.. but I didn't want to pay that much and I found them to be kind of ugly. So I made my own!

full view:


sorry the next is upside-down I forgot to flip the photo..

and a weird side-view to show how the hands stick off..

I made the flags, portraits, and location labels in Photoshop Elements 4.0 (if you've never used a version that crappy you have no idea what I went through) and I mod podged them to a clock I had got at Michael's for $10 and painted green. The hands were purchased at my good old family-owned craft store (the big ones didn't have them) for about $1.60 a pair. It's a bit hard to read the flags and see the portraits because of the glare but in real life it looks fine. So all in all I came in under what I would have paid for the official version and I think mine is cuter too. Smiley

64  VOLDECUPCAKE in Dessert by charmingflaws on: January 05, 2008 12:03:02 PM
I threw a Harry Potter party two summers ago and went crazy with foods from the books. I also made cupcakes to look like some of the characters, based on witch cupcakes I found in one of my mom's cookbooks. Sadly, all of the pictures were lost when my computer died, except this one because it was saved somewhere else. Behold: Voldecupcake!

I probably should mention that when I was really little and read the books, in my mind Voldemort always had a purple face and red slitty eyes. The cone is supposed to be like a pointed witch's hat.. it made sense when it was around the Harry, Ron, Hermione, etc. ones.

65  Every girl needs a cowboy lampshade. in Needlework: Completed Projects by charmingflaws on: December 12, 2007 06:39:13 PM
So I bought the western embroidery pattern from Sublime Stitching and fell in love with the pistols.. a love that grew into my wild west lampshade! The pistols and horseshoes are from the original pattern and I found the other two images online.

Detail shots of my cowboy, indian, and horseshoes...
