1  Bedsheets in action! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by 9thLife on: June 20, 2009 12:19:37 PM

I don't really like the way this turned out.. I think because the sheet was too thin

I have sooo many more to make!

I think i'll just have to try a regular zigzag then... But the stitch I was calling a satin stitch isn't straight up and down.. it has the same distance like a zigzag... but uhm... here's a picture!  Lol.  Too bad I'm off work so I'm away from my machine Sad

So yeah... I'll just have to goof around with it some more.  Thankies!

4  I'm proud. Lots of random clothes... in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by 9thLife on: April 28, 2009 11:52:46 AM
My pride and joy, makes me wish I would exersize more, lol!

This one is with help from whatthecraft.com  Yay Smarmy!

This one is just funny...

And this was going to be the top to this awesome dress I tore apart but I made the shoulders too short for me so it turned into this...

Side note, I feel awesome lately because my re-creations and creations are some of my top sellers in my store.  I honestly never thought people would pay for something I learned to do out of being lowerclass and not being able to buy cool clothes.  So next I'm buying a frigafragin serger!!!!  Woot!!!!

Ugh I'm such a flake!  I sooo forgot to post these pics!!  Sorry, but here they are.  So I just kinda use the leaves to hide and support the flowers.  I buy extra leaves when I see the bunches of them, because I tend to use alot of them.

6  I love hair clips in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by 9thLife on: April 10, 2009 10:53:40 AM
So that button challenge got me thinking about buttons and how I hate wearing clothes with buttons on them... My personal OCD style.  But I love buttons.. So I have a small collection... So this was made.

And I'll let you see that back so you can see just what I did... because everyone needs a button hair clip...  I used my man-strength glue gun tho... Sears Craftsman.  Freakin hot I say.  It holds well amazingly.

Me looking goofy.

And these I have been making for my store.  Thought this one is less simple.. I normally use one flower but this is from my wedding leftovers (the blk flowers)

Me. goofy.. agian... why I say why.

7  He's homicidal and comfy! JTHM skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by 9thLife on: April 10, 2009 10:41:16 AM
I loooove this skirt, so I made it a small size just to make sure I didn't try to keep it for myself.  Elastic encased waistband,  a 4 panel A-line skirt out of an old mens Jthm shirt and a oversized red mens shirt.  I made it pretty plain because well, Johnny is enough.  I drool over this... SEXxXY!!  haha.  Okie...  Here it is...





That little seam is there because the red shirt had a stain that I didn't see until I was already mid-project... So I made do.  It's cute.

Do ya likey?

8  Re: Purple Polka Dots for a little lady. in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 9thLife on: April 02, 2009 02:05:37 PM
It's a stitch I have come to LOVE.  On my Cosco bought Brother, as far as I know only they carried that model but I saw the same stitch on the Project Runway model machine.  It is number 15.  Here's a pic, I had to use my webcam because I already packed up the digital.  But its alright.  This stitch keeps me from having to fold over twice or anything like that, it is great.  I could prolly use 12, 11, or 19 and get the same effect if aimed the right way.  But I like 15 because it uses the regular foot.  I find though, if I try to straighted the hem as I sew it screws completly up.  I kinda have to let the machine do what its doing and I just ever so slightly guide the direction.  Which gets kinda hard because my machine seems to be pulling to the left. And lots of pinning.   I've been asked this before... I should take pictures in action....

9  Purple Polka Dots for a little lady. EDIt!! added matching shirt! in Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects by 9thLife on: April 02, 2009 01:12:43 PM
Ohhh I impressed myself with the shirt.  That darn deer was hard to sew!  Tiny lil legs!  So this is the matching shirt I used the original as a pattern for the dress, and then decided to change out the sleeves and applique it with the cutie deer, I found the picture of the deer floating around google.  Then just printed it out and pinned it to the fabric and cut the fabric with the picture.

And a pic of the inside of the sleeves...

My niece has a birthday coming up soon and since everyone has overloaded gifts of Hannah Montana and jewelry... I decided I'd try to make her a dress.  It is a knit fabric I have a buuuuundle of, I figured that would be good since I'm not able to perfectly size it to her.  Although I'm pretty sure it is definetly too big.  My sister-in-law said she was between a 6 and 7.  I bought a cheap-o 7/8 tee and used it as my template which I will later give sleeves and a deer applique of the same fabric as a side gift.  I'll prolly post that tomarrow.  So what's the thoughts?  Good?  Bad?  Kinda dull maybe?  Oh and it has pleats at the tops of the sleeves because I accidently made them too big, but it works.

10  I made skirts! Hot Wheels! Yay! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by 9thLife on: March 26, 2009 02:16:03 PM
So I made these two skirts because I looove short skirts, but need to be more... mature er whatnot... no booty showing... so longer yoke, and mini pleats at bottom.. sounds good to me!  The blue material is from a Hot Wheels bedsheet, I'm gonna make my son pants out of it to match. (awwwww)  And I just used left over D-rings and some red strappy from walmart for belt loops.  The black skirt was a pain.. because I decided that I didn't want my pleats to be crooked or poofy on there after I washed it or whatnot.. so I sewed each freakin pleat.  Inside and out.  I thought it would never end!  I also made them kinda basic so I could re-size them as my Weight Alteration continues. Yay!  Skirts!
