31  Finishing touches? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by echo_brook on: July 13, 2008 12:15:43 AM
I recently picked up the book "Generation T" and have thus become addicted to reconstructing all the huge tshirts that I managed to collect during college - no college students gives up free stuff! This is a picture of the one (well, two actually, one got cut up and braided into cord) that I'm working on. I was wondering if you all had any ideas about how to stabilize the holes that the cord is threaded through in the back. Note, I do not have a sewing machine, but I'm definitely able to do hand stitching. I was also thinking about doing some embroidery on the front (it's plain green) in the bright lime green. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

32  Battle Squid Jacket - - Image Heavy! in Needlework: Completed Projects by echo_brook on: July 12, 2008 06:39:42 PM
Hi Everyone
This is my first ever post of one of my own projects! I would love to hear what you think.

This is a jacket I picked up thrifting. I love yellow, so it was fated to come home with me. But just a plain yellow jacket has such potential and at the time I was living in a rather seedy neighborhood so I needed to have someone who would always be there to have my back. Enter the Battle Squid! But what exactly what is a Battle Squid?

There he is! Located just under the hood of the jacket so he's ALWAYS got my back Wink
Here's a close up of the needlework. (And the seedy neighborhood story is a fabrication Wink I just really loved this design.)

Let me know what you think. I've been thinking about adding tentacles going up the arms, but I think that might be over doing it a bit. Sometimes I just don't know when to walk away from a finished project.
