1  Re: Show Off Your Hair! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by relgrl47 on: December 12, 2007 11:13:17 PM
Hey guys. It's exam week, and I needed a study break, so I cut me some bangs. Here they are... I feel like I'm eight years old again

and if i want them to go away, bobby pinning is easy

2  i will NEVER write this paper. (painted lamp) in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by relgrl47 on: October 17, 2007 10:58:06 PM
OK, so I decided to paint my lamp while watching Knocked Up on my computer last night. Sooo funny. Anyway. My dorm room is just so terrifyingly prison-like that I have to keep sprucing. Let me know what you think,

And here is me trying to show you how when the light is on it looks cool because it turns my brown/turquoise paint into a silhouette. I just look like an old lady. Scary.

My room is cinder blocky and smells weird and I just had to do SOMETHING to break up the space. oh dear. Anyway here is my mobile made out of textiles. the shapes are stars, circles, moons, and a weird spiraly guy. enjoy them

4  Is this too hipster? who cares, it's cute. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by relgrl47 on: August 21, 2007 11:19:37 AM
This started as a men's XXXL  button down from the thrift. It all turned out really well because now I can wear really low-rise jeans and not have to worry about it because the shirt is so long haha  Wink. Anyway, enjoy

5  Goodbye, bleach stains. I WIN in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by relgrl47 on: May 20, 2007 01:25:06 PM
This shirt was covered in stains and was just not OK anymore. So...textile scraps became my bff and here is my flower/sun/awkwardly framing my boobs shirt. I just love these Gap cotton tees and could never ever throw one away. THIS is the solution. enjoy,

whole thing and ME

6  SUMMER DRESS TIMEEEEE in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by relgrl47 on: March 24, 2007 05:53:46 PM
Yay my first homemade dress! Out of a bedsheet and some yellow scraps. All of the yellow stuff is braided. Comments?


the whole thing:

as tacky as exposed zippers are...this one's pink!!!

I have a little bit of fixing to do but I'm too excited to do that right now. Crafting while watching Gilmore Girls is my idea of a perfect use of time.

7  helloooooo johnny! in Stenciling: Completed Projects by relgrl47 on: March 21, 2007 06:39:37 PM
Johnny Depp is sort of my life. So I just made this guy (not freehand...printed out a photo and made up the shadows) out of a manila folder with my X-acto knife. Notice the little blotch of paint under one of his scissorfingers... That was there before and I put the stencil on this shirt to make it blend in. How frugal of me.

P.S.... SO sorry about me being a major creeper in the background, but I love photobooth so I can just hold up my drying shirt. Yay!

9  Some Skirts -first timer! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by relgrl47 on: December 12, 2006 12:22:12 PM
So the first one is just fun because it's this great random nautical fabric.

The other one was pretty fun to make, but of course I measured myself wrong and had to insert a charcoal thing in the back to make it fit because I didn't want to buy more fabric, but I think it looks pretty cool with the waistband of the same cheapo quilting fabric. Thanks!

10  my first skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by relgrl47 on: December 12, 2006 12:13:11 PM
So i had about a billion of these shirts and decided to make them into a skirt. I know the waistband is a little shaky, but I'm still learning. Thanks!


The polka dotted part of this skirt was just old cheap quilting fabric, and the triangular inserts are textile wallovering scraps.
