1  Unstretching jersey knits? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by kellianneeee on: February 05, 2013 01:32:55 PM
So I made a dress the other day to have seamless straps because my machine doesn't like to make pretty seams. I used plain black fabric and misted some bleach water to make a cool effect on it. Well I left it in the dryer and the lady that is living with us did laundry. She hung the dress up by just one strap. It was a heavy knit and completely stretched the strap almost 6 inches longer than it was. Is there a way to unstretch it? Can it be fixed without cutting it and adding a seam? Here you can see how bad the damage is.

2  Handmade and dyed dress! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by kellianneeee on: November 13, 2012 01:19:28 PM
I wanted a very impractical for traveling dress to travel in just so I could look cute and this is what I came up with. The dress is just a simple circle skirt with trapezoid shaped top lol I did an ombre dye effect on it because I didn't like the plain white. I'm not good with whites and I could see my bra though it. I already had the fabric that I bought a long time ago at Wal-Mart. It was a 5 yard bolt for only $5 of some blend, I still have about a yard left and have used it for multiple other projects. So this dress really only cost the money for the dye. Anyway, here's the only picture I have.

What do you all think?

3  Roll Tide, Roll! LSU IS GOING DOWNNNNN. in Screen Printing: Completed Projects by kellianneeee on: January 06, 2012 01:15:09 PM
I'm an Alabama fan. As is the rest of my family. My cousin is (hopefully) going to be the starting kicker next year, but right now he just gets to dress out during home games and possibly the championship game. Wooh! LSU is going down. No doubt in my mind. Anyway, my first day of college is on the 9th and I needed to represent my team even more than just my tervis tumbler and my lanyard. So I took a plain white shirt and made my own screen print of the mascot. On the back it has my cousins last name (Drake), and his number (98). It isn't completely done yet, but I'm too excited to wait until it's finished to post pictures. When I cut the neck and make the shirt more feminine I'll post more pictures. Pictures!

EDIT: It's done!

4  Hermione's bag from the Deathly Hallows in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by kellianneeee on: November 17, 2011 03:22:11 PM
How would I go about making it? It doesn't have to look exactly the same, but what would the pattern or pieces look like? I would buy one, but I don't want to shell out $70 for it. :/

5  My totally awesome redone wallet! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kellianneeee on: November 03, 2011 04:36:55 PM
It went from being a sequined monster to a new goatskin luxury. I made this to go with my purse, so it's made out of the same hide that the replacement handles will be made in.
If anyone is interested I took pictures along the way so I can make a tutorial.
Before: The colors are off, it was striped blue and black sequins.

After: Inside:

6  Adding new handles to a Chanel Bag *EDIT: Pictures added* in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Discussion and Questions by kellianneeee on: October 20, 2011 12:35:04 PM
So I've got this Chanel bag, and the leather on the handles has fallen apart in all my use of the purse. The bag itself is lambskin, and I bought some new leather to make new handles out of. The thing is, the new stuff is goatskin. I haven't gotten it yet, but does anyone think it'd look way different than the bag? I don't think it will be obvious enough for people to tell unless they already know. Anyway, how would I go about sewing the goatskin? The handles attach to a ring that attaches to the bag, so I know I'd have to make them longer than normal so they can double up over the ring. How would I make the handles round like they are now? (they look like the ones on this bag: http://www.pradareplicahandbags.com/images/Product/Chanel%2011118%20handle%20bag%20silver-1111.jpg) I would just send the bag in to get it fixed professionally, but I'm broker than ever and I figured it'd be cheaper to just buy the leather and do it myself. I don't even know where I'd send it to anyway, I got the bag second-hand. When I go home later I'll take a picture of the bag so you can see how the handles actually are and maybe I'd get better help on some kind of pattern for them.

*Edit for pictures:
As you can see, the color matches so closely. It's awesome. The goatskin isn't quite as supple, but it definitely works. Picture time! The first two are closer to the actual colors.
My coverup that didn't look very good:

How it looked all torn up:

And finally, how closely it matches!:

7  Extreme(ly weird) Ferret mansion in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by kellianneeee on: October 05, 2011 04:02:37 PM
I've had my ferret for almost 2 years now (holy crap, has it really been that long?!), and he's been in the same small little cage since I got him. I'm always on the lookout for bigger cages, but they never seem to be in my budget. But alas! One day at a yard sale someone was selling their sugar glider cage for only $10! I snatched that bad boy up and managed to fit it in my itty bitty car. I got it home and immediately used some planet fabric from the stash to make some covers for the levels since they were wire and I didn't want his little tosies to get stuck. From there I used wire cutters to cut a hole in the top of his old cage, filed down the ends (after scratching my arm pretty badly), and attached the new to the old. And here it is! My super modified but awesomely huge ferret mansion. Now he just needs a buddy to live with him. If only I had the money to get another baby... Onto pictures!
His old cage:

The new: (there is a ramp the that first small level, he just knocked it off)

And him stuffing his face:

Edit: I'd like to add that I've since gotten a new addition my animal family. She's from the shelter and I don't know what to name her yet. But isn't she cute?! (my old baby Hooch is in the back, eating. again.)
It was so hard to get a decent picture. Now that she is here neither one of them ever stop moving. I'll have to wait until they are asleep to get good pictures.

8  Still haven't sold anything? in Selling Crafts on Etsy.com by kellianneeee on: July 13, 2011 01:14:15 PM
So I made an etsy and listed my shoes. I've been promoting EVERYWHERE. People keep looking at them and favoriting them, but nobody has made any effort to actually buy any. I've had a few inquiries from people on craigslist, but it seems like as soon as they hear the price they go running in another direction. So how much would you honestly pay for a pair of my shoes? I work really hard on them and make sure that they are perfect. I made a pair for my sister and I used those for the pictures of my work. But it just seems like people don't want to shell out the money for a pair of custom made shoes.
So how much would YOU pay for these?

Oh and it's been at least 2 weeks since I put them on etsy and I posted them on craigslist in lots of major cities like Vegas, LA, New York, Chicago, etc. I don't see why they aren't selling.

9  My version of Dorothy's iconic shoes in Shoes: Completed Projects by kellianneeee on: June 29, 2011 03:41:41 PM
While out thrift shopping one day, I came across shoes that weren't in too bad of shape. Except for some obvious chew marks on the heel, of course. I didn't really know what to do with them when I bought them, but for $2.50? I was already bought. In the end I decided to glitterize them. When I chose red, and after I did the glitter, my dad said they reminded him of the Wizard of Oz. So I put the yellow brick road on the bottom. ANYWHO. On to the pictures!
(Sorry they aren't that great. I'm sure many of you know how hard it is to take pictures of the shoes on your own feet)

Looking at the one picture, I noticed I need to touch up the glitter.

10  Re: Let's see your sewing machine!! in Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions by kellianneeee on: August 08, 2010 12:26:03 PM
I just got this one this weekend. I tried to google it and find out what year it was made. The only one I saw that looked the same was from 1890! It almost didn't fit in my backseat, and it was a pain to get in and out of the car. But for only $15? I couldn't pass it up. I still have yet to actually use it. For now it's more of a desk. Cheesy
