61  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Girl Scout pride recon! No khaki involved, I promise. on: May 06, 2008 03:58:51 PM
I got this cute girl scout shirt at a national sing-a-long and it was begging to be redone. Actually this shirt is the best thing that came out of that trip. I made it too tight so I had to add side panels, but I like it this way. Whatcha think?

(boob shot!)

Hooray for girl scouts! And t-shirt recons.
62  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Frumpy cardigan to cute v-neck cardigan on: April 08, 2008 02:28:42 PM
I bought an old lady cardigan on sale at Target for like ten bucks thinking that it was cute. Then I looked in a mirror. Anyway, I decided it would be better tighter, and as a v-neck. I know it's a really simple project but I thought people might like to see.

Here's the final result:


Thanks for checking it out. What do you think?
63  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Grandpa sweater to new sweater.. thing? on: March 27, 2008 01:37:00 PM
I don't really know what to call this. But I like it. I took a giant grandpa sweater and took it in and cut off most of the sleeves.. the eerie part is that the new sleeves are actual part of what used to be the hugeness of the front section. They just flopped over into sleeves on their own. It's so simple to make.. a good pick me up project for when you want somthing fast and cute.

whatever that white thing in the second pic is, it's on the mirror and not the sweater.

so what do you think?
64  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Maternity tank + XXXL t-shirt into cute ruffle skirt 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
65  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Western shirt to Ruffled Red Jacket 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!
66  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Mrs. Weasley's Clock!! (a bit heavy on the images) 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
67  COOKING / Dessert / VOLDECUPCAKE 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.
68  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Every girl needs a cowboy lampshade. 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...

69  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Lovely Decoupage Mirror! on: December 12, 2007 06:32:16 PM
This was my first decoupage project... a mirror for my mother who is redecorating our house. I used scrapbook paper, acrylic paint and lots and lots of mod podge.


Here are some close-ups:

This is also my first post, so let me know what you think!
