So glad you liked it Margiej! It is modeled after Jiji. I love Kiki's Delivery Service and when I saw the Jiji thing on your wist I knew I had to go with that theme! Here is a picture, unfortunately taken on my phone so not super clear. Tongue I really enjoyed this swap!

I received from Margiej last week but due to some camera issues couldn't get pictures until now other than phone pictures and I really didn't want to use those! So, here are now photos of all the great fabric she sent me. There is some really pretty lace and lots of cottons, I actually was able to use one piece in her thank you gift. Wink

Thanks again Margiej for being my giver!! I hope you like your thank you gift as much!

19  Bunch of Appliqued/Altered Shirts in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by 1watermonkey on: September 20, 2012 02:49:36 PM
I wasn't really sure if I should post this in general clothing or reconstructed clothing but since it wasn't actually taking apart anything I figured here was appropriate. My current hobby is thrifting clothing and altering it usually with applique into something I actually want to wear. It works out well because I find some great stuff in thrift stores and save a ton of money and with a fiance who is in school and a four year old that's always a good thing. Smiley I wanted to share some of my latest projects.

Phoenix Sweater. Started out as a green sweater with a rather unattractive Christmas tree on the front. I make an applique inspired by X-Men and was able to cover it pretty well. There are a few issues still but it's going to be warm and comfy for me this fall. Smiley

Another X-Men one, I love Grant Morrison's run of New X-Men and this and the phoenix sweater were inspired by that. This was a plain black turtleneck sweater from Goodwill.

This one is a little hard to see. It's a Batman sweater meant to be subtle with black on dark grey but in the light it's hard to see. Regardless I love it and it's 100% merino wool which means it's super soft and comfy. Again another goodwill buy. Smiley

This one is a little image heavy. I bought this dress at a local thrift store for $3, there was a pretty big tear and scuffed spot on the bottom but I loved the polkadots and I don't often find cute knee length dresses in my size. So I repaired the holes as well as I could, covered that spot up with a big bow and added an anchor applique. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out although I still need to do some more handstitching on the bow to get it to sit exactly where I want it.

The Before


A thrifted cardigan appliqued with Legend of Zelda life hearts. I'm missing a half Wink

And lastly these are two that were not made for myself to wear as they were too small but still two I really liked once they were finished.

Appliqued Vest

And a blue cardigan with Atashi from Chobits. I love this so much and am on the lookout for a soft blue cardigan in my size to do one for me. Smiley

20  Weeping Angel Ornament (Doctor Who) in Winter Holidays by 1watermonkey on: September 20, 2012 02:25:15 PM
I thought this would be a fun idea for an ornament. My fiance and I are huge Doctor Who fans and the angels are one of my favorite villains. It took a loong time to get my patterns right and then I still wasn't quite happy with the face but I love how it looks otherwise. :]
