1  Re: Return of the Rockabilly GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by denym_vashti on: June 14, 2010 05:52:16 PM
Gahhh!  I got my package!  It was such a nice surprise after a bit of a tiring day at work, I was so happy!  My partner, Pixiefirefly totally rocked this swap for me!
I got: 2 bags, a phone case and a cherry key chain (both either knit or crocheted),  an Elvis embroidery, 2 cherry coasters, a headband, and hair flowers out the wazoo!
Pics!

The chain is already on my keys!

The script is so beautiful and even on the Elvis piece! The coasters are too cute!

I had been wanting hair flowers, and Pixiefirefly went above and beyond!  I totally love them!  Grin Grin Grin

Action shot. Hehe. 

Thank you sosososososo much, Pixie!  And to the organizers too!

3  Princess and the Frog in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: May 09, 2010 10:37:16 PM
I had a vision for how I wanted this to turn out!  Then I went down a different path... but it's ok. I still kinda like it. My favorite part is probably the hood. Cheesy

Sorry for the bad phone pic!  And the bottom pocket thing does go into the seams, I know it may look like just a patch or something.
Have a good day!

4  Recons in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: May 09, 2010 10:06:14 PM
I was inspired by this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=315641.0) tutorial, and made this.



Quite some time ago, I was given a men's long-sleeved plaid jacket.  It was kinda ugly.  So I girlified it and wore it to a garage concert last year sometime.  Sorry this isn't a very detailed picture of it-believe it or not, its the best one I have...  And sorry if I resemble the girl from the Ring... You know how many people tell me I look like her?  Talk about your boost of confidence!  Tongue


Have a great day!

5  Tie Skirt *featuring rat suit!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: May 09, 2010 09:59:14 PM
Made this before I went to school last year.  I recommend making one, you get lots of compliments! Plus I was known around campus as "the girl with the tie skirt."  Which is something everyone wants, right??

The rat suit was from my roomie's boyfriend who sent it as an Easter gift...thoughtful, no? Please excuse the mess of college dorm bathroomness.
Have a great day!

6  Lion King sheet sundress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: July 12, 2009 02:24:41 PM
Last year I posted the Lion King circle skirt I made from a sheet. I decided to make it into a sun dress.  Cheesy I only have one pic and it's not the best, as it's from my phone...  Roll Eyes  The back didnt come out as I wanted, but it's all good!

7  Modified swimsuit in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: August 24, 2008 07:39:59 PM
I was in search of a one-piece swimsuit for college, but was having some trouble finding one.  I ended up buying a tankini, and sewing an old black one-piece to it up where the flowing part of the top ends.  I used the bottom of the tankini to close up the neckline.  With some remaining fabric, I made a sunglass case cozy!   Cheesy 

And the cozy.

Thanks for looking!  Have a great one!

8  widened jeans w/ up-side-down look in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: August 24, 2008 06:45:26 PM
So I was looking at the Compai Crew book about denim, and there was one project about widening jeans to be really, really baggy.  I kinda liked the idea and decided to do so with some unwanted jeans...but after widening them...I wished they were even baggier, because they looked like flares, not baggies.  However I had already used the legs from the second pair of jeans, and decided to resort to the tops.  I was pleased with the resulting look, just because it was untraditional.  I wore them to see The Dark Knight the next day...haha...random trivia.

One side, the other side has extra material too, but it's plain denim.

9  skirt from sleeves... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by denym_vashti on: August 24, 2008 06:18:33 PM
My friend, RachelG, made a skirt from sleeves, inspired me, and I started looking over at Threadbanger for instructions, because that's where she said she got the idea.  I came across this link, http://capital-sew-and-sew.blogspot.com/2007/08/restylin-lumberjack-classic.html and used it as the basis for making my own.  I'd like to thank God for sending me the shirts when I asked Him for them.  Grin Grin Grin  Because, as a kid getting ready for college, even a few bucks at a thrift store on something not so necessary is not the best idea...unfortunately...but someone was getting rid of some shirts.  Cheesy
I just have one not-so-quality picture, but there are much better examples of this cool idea on the link.

Thanks for looking, have a good one!
