1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Re: OMG! I learned how to operate a sewing machine!!! [Lots o' Pics] on: August 22, 2009 02:39:13 PM
Thank you everyone! I was really nervous about posting, but I think I can do it again now!

As for the family logo-- believe me, we do flaunt it everywhere! I have smaller versions of it in a tattoo around my right arm, my sister has it tattooed on her foot, it's on our business cards, and we're working on dress concepts so we can have a fun line of $10 dresses! (On top of Craigslist, I love wholesale fabrics!)

Thank you! And yes, it was the SWEETEST DEAL EVER!

Our logo is a combination of Palauan icons, in this case it represents both my father's sides of the family. The circles on the side symbolize the money laid by the okak bird-- a symbol of my paternal grandpa's village-- and the center piece is a tribal clam-- which are infamously from my paternal grandma's village.

I'm a lurker. Been lurkin' here for longer than a respectable girl should admit. Mostly, it was because I couldn't operate a sewing machine... Then it was because I couldn't sew anything wearable.

But I finally figured out how to operate my machine! (That, and I scored a full-figure TwinFit dressform for $40 off of Craigslist...)

So I've finally worked up the courage to post some of the stuff I've recently done.

Project #1: Lounging Pants

The shirt looked like this when I found it in a thrift store. I bought it because it was orange and said "Guam."

But the shirt didn't look cute on me. So I decided they'd look cute on me as pants!

Project #2: Islanesian Experience -- The Dresss

1. It started as two plain shirts I never wore...

2. Then I did a DIY screen print of the family logo...

3. Then I made a fun summery maxi dress! (I love shirring!)

Project #3: My First *Wearable* Hoodie

I forgot to take before photos of this one, sorry! But it started as a short sleeve shirt that I found for $2 during a street fair. Monkey Love aside, it wasn't really something I'd wear much. But I recently got a pair of red and black lounging pants and decided the shirt would make an excellent matching hoodie! (The hood was made especially big for when my dreads are looking especially heinous... Roll Eyes)

*Sigh o' Relief*

There. I did it. I've posted something I made and I might even try to do it again someday!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / From Shirt to Lounging Pants... on: March 28, 2009 08:24:23 PM
Longtime recon lurker, but first-time poster-- mainly because I'm still trying to figure out how to operate a sewing machine...

My local Goodwill had one of their colored tag bonanzas, so I scored a ton of 99 cent shirts to experiment with-- and so far, I suck the least at turning a shirt into lounging pants:

The top of the pants came from a random red shirt that I also picked up while thrift shopping.

Thanks for looking!

I want this dress SO bad! It begs for a pair of blue jelly sandals!

OMG!  Grin  SUPER BRILLIANT! I desperately need to make a few of these for myself!
7  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: Best $30 ever spent! EVER! on: October 24, 2008 06:55:18 PM
This was the first time I've ever seen yarn at my local Dollar Tree, so I was super-giddy. There are several within a few minutes of me, so I figured I'd go check the other stores over the weekend.

*Fingers crossed*

I'm thinking happy thoughts!

I want that first hat (with the flaps) SOOOOOOO badly! Maybe I can convince one of my more crochet-savvy friends to make me one for Christmas...
