1  Recon shirts! These are a few of my favorite things!!! And more! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by babybowmadness on: June 24, 2008 02:27:53 PM
Hey everybody!  I know, they aren't "THAT" great, but they are still cute and comfy!  I don't think I have any action shots, but here are my pictures.  I am still new at working the sewing machine and actually sewing, but I am having fun just learning from my mistakes!  Comments please!!! Thanks!!!

This shirt I turned into a cute tank top.  I chose the main shirt because in the back it reads "Back that ass up" so funny!  I added material to the sides, more below and some cute pockets!  Straps are adjustable.

My first recon halter top!  I love this top!

Tube Top!  It reads "FLASH ME...your pearly whites" hehe.

A recon shirt I made my niece.  It was a long sleeve shirt at one point.  Now a cute top!

Pajama top turned into gaunlets *sp?* and now I have a sleeveless pajama top

This purse used to be a sweater that belonged to my nephew.  It out grew him, so I turned it into a cute tote.

Comments, questions?  I had fun!  I have more recon shirts, just no pictures yet! hehe.  Thanks for looking!

2  Wallet made with business cards and tape *Pictures* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by babybowmadness on: January 29, 2008 12:53:34 PM
Hi everybody! I was trying to print out business cards for my store, and accidentally messed up a page I had printed out.  It was printed on cardstock with those easy tear thingys, so everything had to be exact, well, it didn't turn out like that.  If I were to tear to pre cut area, half of it would get lopped off.  Sooooooo, I turned the entire sheet into a wallet.

I covered it in clear tape, and turned it into a wallet.  I had a few old business cards left over, so I used those has the inside pockets.  I took a piece of plastic *like those that cover the pack of batteries* and cut it to size, and will be using it to hold my IDs.  In the picture you will see another business card in it because I didn't have my wallet with me at the time and it was hard taping it down since it was clear, lol.

Now it turns out perfectly because I needed a new wallet to begin with! lol.  I may make an outside pocket for change.  I did a bifold, and added velcro.  I may use the empty middle spot to tape pictures there....but don't know what else. I got tired of the idea of more pockets! lol.  *any ideas are welcome*

Comments please!!! hehe.


Sorry about the blurriness on the second picture! *blushes*  Embarrassed But I am sure you get the idea! hehe  Roll Eyes
