11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Transmetropolitan shirt on: August 06, 2008 03:09:04 PM
OK, so my boyfriend is obsessed with Transmetropolitan...I know, I'm dating a total nerd...but...anyway, he finally convinced me to read it...and it was really good! woo
so...then I made him this shirt...the 3 eyed smiley face is the symbol of the transients in Transmet...ok, so I'm a bit of a nerd too =)
well, anyway, here's the shirt:

here's him wearing it:

and...him and me...yeah, I'm standing on my tiptoes in this picture, he's 6'5" and I'm 5'... =) it's interesting...anyway:

so...what do y'all think?? I looove comments
oh...and the yellow circle is fabric and then the face is fabric paint...
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pink Floyd Dress on: August 06, 2008 03:03:33 PM
so, I had this Pink Floyd T shirt that I LOOOVED, but it was really big, so...a couple hours of cutting and sewing, and...

excuse the weird face...

the pink fabric is from a shirt from my aunt

back: sorry, I'm standing kind of weird in this picture:

this was my first time doing raglan sleeves, so I'm pretty happy with the outcome...
anyway, tell me what you think!
13  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Decoupaged iPod? on: August 05, 2008 01:02:40 PM
um, so I had this strange idea today...I was looking at my iPod and I was like...it's so boring...and then I wondered...do you think it would be possible to decoupage it?
Like, would it get messed up? Or do you think it would still work?
anyway...just a strange thought that might be interesting...tell me what you think...
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ugly skirt realizes its true potential on: July 31, 2008 08:54:07 AM
So someone gave me this skirt...and it was absolutely hideous:

sorry for the crappy mirror pic..but you get the idea...
Anyway...it had all these awesome buttons down the front..so....it becomes a dress! yay:


umm...this picture was before I sewed on the straps, so that pink ribbon doesn't actually hang down there anymore...just so you know =)

close up:

and close up(ish) of the strap...sorry the flash kind of messed it up...but, yeah:

and...this is from before I sewed on the pink straps...I pinned it with lace instead of the pink ribbon stuff...what do you think? Should I have left it with the lace? Or is the pink better?

haha yes, I do put jewelry on my dress form =)

anyway...tell me what you think...=)
15  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / shoes. with WORDS on them! (image plump ;D) on: July 27, 2008 01:28:00 PM
yeah, so I went through all my old Rolling Stone and Saveur magazines and cut out words and phrases that I liked...then glued them on to these shoes and sprayed them with varnish stuff...anyway...I like them, but they don't fit me...I'm considering selling them...anyway...here are the pics:


AND...I cut and pasted my business name inside each shoe:

so...I'm very happy with them, but not sure if they need more words and things...anyway, tell me what you think, I LOVE comments!

16  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / decoupaged collage shoes! on: July 27, 2008 11:23:44 AM
OK, so I know this has been done before, but...I'm still really really excited!
Here's the shoes before:

and after! yay (they're just covered with pictures from magazines):

I just used Elmer's Glue (because I'm lazy) and then sprayed them with varnish so they won't fall apart...
what do you think? I wore them out once (in the rain...) but no major damage...so, I'm happy.
comments would be very very much appreciated
17  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Obamamania!!! on: July 21, 2008 11:43:07 AM
So, I discovered this AWESOME thrift store! Of course, it has the weirdest hours...but anyway, their shirts are 25 CENTS EACH!!!! and they're not even crappy. they're actually NICE.
Soooo....I bought a LOT of plain shirts and made some Obama shirts! YAY!
I painted them with fabric paint and acrylic...and ok, this isn't technically a recon because I didn't sew...but I probably will add embellishments or something when my sewing machines are fixed (yes, BOTH are broken   Cry)
This one is a little kid shirt...like a kid's medium or something:

and the back:


this one is a women's small:

The words are supposed to be crooked...I like them like that, but I'm worried that they look like I just can't write straight...what do you think?

anyway, here's the back:

and here they are hanging next to each other:

and this one is a women's large:
it says "Barack around the clock"

close up of the detail:

and the back (it says "Obama '08 Change you can believe in"):

so what do y'all think?
I'm thinking of selling them at the farmer's market, but...I don't know...anyway...tell me if you like them. or if you hate them. either way =)
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Let it be (my obsession. part two) on: July 20, 2008 01:09:26 PM
So, two of my friends have birthdays like a week apart...and because all of us are obsessed with Across the Universe (and the Beatles-we used to be in a Beatles cover band...not such a success Smiley)
ANYway...it was my friend Brigid's birthday on Friday, so I decided to stick to the Beatles theme and I did a Let it Be shirt...this one was done in much more of a hurry than the Strawberry Fields Forever shirt, so...no embroidery on this one...the purple paint is fabric paint and the black paint is acrylic...and the giant black music note is T shirt fabric...I messed up on the paint of the word "when," and then I had to cover it up...but I actually kind of like it this way...
On to the pics!
Oh by the way, I got the red shirt at the thrift store for 25 cents!!! =)

the front says "...and when all the brokenhearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer..."
and the back says:

close up of the front:

Even though it's insanely hot out, I made it a long sleeved shirt because here in Northern NY, it's winter for like 6 months out of the year...so. ultimately, she'll wear it more.
She wore it for a few minutes on her birthday (not for long-it was like 90 degrees and really humid) but I forgot to take pictures...anyway, she liked it. yay!
so...do you like it? do tell =)
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black and white skirt from shirts recon on: July 13, 2008 01:30:21 PM
My aunt gave me these two tank tops...one black and one white. They were exactly the same and of course I forgot to take before pics, but I drew a picture of (basically) what they looked like:

AND....now they are a skirt!!!!!:

white side tie thing:

and black side tie thing:

and on my new dress form (YAY!):

and a bonus, my new hair color (Deadly nightshade Smiley) just because I'm excited and want to show people:

anyway, tell me what you think of the skirt! Thanks
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shorts and two shirts combine to make my new miniskirt! on: July 13, 2008 01:17:57 PM
OK, so my aunt gave me two huge bags of clothes, and I took a pair of reeeallly soft redish-pink running shorts and a plain white T-shirt and a blue floral print babydoll top and combined them to make a miniskirt:

here's a close up:

so...yeah, it's kind of a variation on this https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=256710.0
which I made with a friend's daughter...mine's just shorter and with three layers =)
anyway, tell me what you think of it!!
