Adittional materials I uses ware red ribbon, whithe lace, some leftover patchwork fabric and a patch. I hope this materials fit into the contest regulations. And now on to the pictures.

2  a cute dress made of two un-cute mens shirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by binchen on: January 31, 2009 08:19:22 AM
Hello everyone.
Because the end of my time at school is approaching quite fast I am forced to think about what to wear at the graduation ball. I suppose all the girls will come up with pastel coloured satin dresses, so I wanted to make something very different for myself. I took two shirts I got when my mums friend cleaned out his wardrobe and made this dress to try out a pattern I had in mind for my ball dress. I think the pattern worked out quite well, and I will use it on two darker and more "festive" shirts to create my graduation ball dress. Now on to the pictures:

My legs arent that white. Really. This is due to bad lighting conditions.

Thank you for your attention and you are welcome to leave some comments.  Smiley

3  keep an eye on the floor - my huge eyeball rug in Crochet: Completed Projects by binchen on: January 22, 2009 04:34:24 AM
Hello everyone.
This is the first time I start a topic, so I am very excited. I am going to tell you about my huge eyeball rug. I was really inspired by some pictures of rugs made of old t-shirts I saw here, so I decided to make one. All I used for it were my hands (because I coudnt get a crochet hook big enough) old t-shirts, sweatshirts, scraps of elastic fabric und an ugly fleece blanket. I used this tutorial to make the t-shirt yarn: http://eloomanator.eloomanation.com/?p=46
And now on to the pictures. (I hope I can figure out what you have to do to upload them)

The ruler on this picture ist 50 cm long, so you can imagine how big the rug is.

Thank you for your attention. And write some comments, please. Wink

I got the question how I crocheted without a crocheting hook. So I will try to explain:
I just pretended that the forefinger of my right hand was a crocheting hook. Then I crocheted the rug as a normal circle, making all the movements the hook does using my finger, while holding the rug whith the other hand. This "no hook" technique was quite tricky at the biginning but then I got used to it. Sorry, if I could not explain this technique very well, but my English is not good at all, when it comes to technical terms of crocheting.
