11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Stars, stipes and...well you get the idea... on: April 01, 2005 02:10:19 PM
So I had this shirt laying around...I had to do something with it! Plus it was a tad too small... The blue and red are both from other t-shirts (my kid sister gave me, so needles to say, they were small). After adding the stipes (to both front and back) I had to take it in at the sides, which gave it somewhat more of my 'girly' shape... this is a horrible picture...but it's the best I came up with.

It reminds me of baseball...maybe I'll wear it to a local game or something.

And this stitching is on the top and bottom...

Thanks for looking!

12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Baseball tee and a Cute top on: March 28, 2005 11:31:53 PM
So I made this baseball top awhile ago, and I got some wear out of it but of course I had to mess it up somehow...I got a little stain on it...
Yeah right there... So my question to you is...what would look good to 'cover' it up? It's kind of in a weird spot so I'm not so sure what would go good there...

I also made this last summer. I wore it to our senior lunch fun times...

Yes I used patterns for both of them...I could look them up if anyone cares to know...

Thanks for looking!

13  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ox-ford workshirt + Sewing Machine = This on: March 28, 2005 11:23:18 PM
So I took one of my moms old ox-ford workshirts and turned it into this...

And this...

Back view...

I haven't finished the edges of the 'cover up' top, because I am not 100%sure on how I should do it...if I want to add color or keep it all white...it didn't take me long to make this, maybe an hour tops?

Thanks for looking!

14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Old t-shirt recon on: March 21, 2005 12:27:38 PM
I got this shirt from a club, erm fashion club, I was a co president it was cool, we got free stuff, lol. And I even went to FIDM (we won it) 3 days of fashion for free...Anyways the shirt was to small for me, it was a girls m/l, and I am bigger than that, even too short. So I took it a part and made this, I really like it, it isn't real clean though, none of my recons are. And it fits well in the width but the length is way short still (even though I lowered it to make it longer). But it's really cute, for some reason I feel like the seams should be called princess seams...odd eh? Anyways on to it...



Thank you for looking Cheesy

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Short Jacket on: March 21, 2005 12:22:20 PM
Or would it be a shrug? I don't know anyways, Joann's was having the 99cent patterns a few weeks back, I bought as much as I could, ended up hating them all (thats the way it always works for me) except this one, Simplicity 4779.

The fabric isn't very 'spring-ey" but it is super soft. I've been a huge sucker for dark colors in the last couple of months, no idea as to a reason. It was super easy to make, the hardest part was hemming it (which I've always hated). Well on the the erm...sweater?

And for more of a side view...

I love it, it's my favorite item of clothing that I've ever made. When I wore it my mom asked me who shrunk my sweater...haha...it was actually a joke though...

Thanks for looking Cheesy

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Simple quilting pattern help on: March 07, 2005 12:57:06 PM
I am a beginner when it comes to quilting, I did some in my high school sewing class last year, but it's been awhile and well I can't remember any of the basic blocks. So I came here for inspiration, and I didn't see any basic patterns. I know you girls (or guys) all know them by heart, so I would REALLY love it if you helped me out and posted some! I can't even remember the basic size of a quilt square (sad huh?). Anyways ANY help would me MUCH loved! Thank you so much!

17  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Simple, yet I love it. on: February 24, 2005 11:49:24 PM
Hello, I believe I have posted a purse here before but I am not sure. Anyways I love making purses I always do because well you don't have to worry about how a purse will look on, haha.

I went into this with the idea to make a tampon bag, that idea failed (this would be a great pad bag though, but would be of no use for me). It came out a bit big but I love it. It's the first thing I've ever really put a zipper in, I am very happy with it, it looks so very professional...ok on to the pics...

18  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / problem with freezer paper on: November 26, 2004 10:03:44 PM
ok so i print it out on the freezer paper after i resize it to fit correctly, and then when im exacto-ing it out it doesnt come out clean...at all the edges are all rough and gross and it just doesnt come out right (ive stenciled before using poster board and i was able to cut it out fine) anyways any suggestions would be wonderful, thanks

19  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / first stencil...love hurts on: November 19, 2004 11:12:46 AM
I've been dying to stencil for the last 2 or so weeks but havnt been able to get all teh riht stuff...so yesterday I got it and I made this! (I didnt make the stencil, I found it here http://photobucket.com/albums/v189/_stencils_/ tons of great stencils, check it out) I used acryilic paint with textile medium.

anyways on with the pics...

I used poster board to cut out the stencils and I just taped it, the lesson I learned being a first time stenciler was to NOT tape it down so much (it as hard to get the stencil off) and to take the stencil off sooner...some of the paper stuck to the shirt! (I'm hoping itll come off when I wash it)

Well I hope you joyed!
