41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Oversized tee to Halter - w/embroidery! on: April 01, 2010 10:50:39 AM
Found a really cool tee on sale at Target, in my favorite purple color, and pink scripty writing. It was also, alas... to big.  Not anymore!

Embroidered it, chopped off the top, turned it into a cross wrap, and then trimmed down the bottom, and braided the extra fabric to make the halter ties! Here's a detail of the machine embroidery...

as you can see, I also sewed real bling onto the shirt I got off a funky earring I bought. Just to add that little extra.

In case you're wondering what the tee looked like before, here's small photo:

Me being sad because it's too big. It tugs at the heartstrings, doesn't it?

Rockin my new halter and soo ready for warm weather! We had our first March in Minnesota with no snow in 135 years. I'm beginning to believe that maybe winter is really over. Woot!

48  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Resuable Lunchbag Winter Survival Kit! on: February 19, 2010 10:07:28 AM
I know, at first glace those things don't seem to be related. Reusable lunch bag, and a winter survival kit? Waa? Well just stick with me people... here's your fantastic handmade reusable monster lunch bag...

But take a look inside, and you have all you need to "survive winter"!!

Yeup, my winter survival kit is all about chocolate and goodies.

A little care package set of s'mores and hot cocoa, put together with ribbon and plastic bags. Doesn't this just warm the heart? Tell me that doesn't make bearing the long winter just a little bit easier...


That totally wasn't me. I dont' eat my props. That would be unprofessional...
Anyway, once all the goodies have been consumed, you still have a fantastic reusable lunchbag to fill with nutritious lunches! (To make up for all that chocolate)

49  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Punk Rock Knitting Rollup! on: February 12, 2010 11:41:45 AM
I'm not sure whether this should go under machine embroidery, sewing, or knitting. It goes here for now.

You're a punk rock knitter... it's time your accessories show that! Check it out...

Opened up. The top half folds over the knitting needles so that when it's rolled up they don't slide out..

Look at all the pretty pockets!

A special space for your circular knitting needles, your scissors, little needles, tape measure, and even your tiny knitting needles! And of course, you have to have a punk machine embroidery design to go on the front...

Now you can take your hardcore knitting on the road Smiley

How/where did you do the embrodement?
SOOOOO cute!!!:)

I have an embroidery machine. You just hoop up your fabric, load up the design, and the machine stitches it out for you! You can also usually take designs to local embroidery places and they'll do it for you.
