1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Quick Summer Top made from Tea Towels on: September 12, 2015 01:14:15 PM
How comfy is the fabric to wear?  I would worry about a thicker fabric being too warm.

The fabric on these were pretty light, that was why I thought I could turn them into a shirt. They are a sort of light cotton.

I like it, and it looks great on you. Were the towels big enough for the backside, too, or did you use some other fabric there?

I used 4 of the towels, so two for the front and two for the back. :-)

My latest quick-sew project. I've had this music room fabric for years and was never sure what I wanted to do with it. Finally, since it was a pretty big piece with two panels of the print I decided on a simple dress smile emoticon. Just side seams, a neckline and hemming!

When I was in San Francisco earlier in the summer I had picked up 4 of these cute sumo wrestler tea towels. I had a vague notion of turning them into a shirt, so when I sat down to do it I kept it simple. Not sure how long it will hold up, but still not bad for $6 :-)

I just picked up a pattern for a wrap skirt (after thinking about them all summer :-P) I can't wait to try it. I hope mine come out this nice

So adorable! I'm also curious which pattern you used. I really love the red checked dress :-)

Looks like you had a great time, too!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My SxSW Totebag Dress on: March 30, 2015 11:11:36 AM
Last year's tote bags from SxSW were adorable, but not really big enough to be useful to me as totes. So I turned them into a dress ^^

I used McCall's M6085 dress pattern and just cobbled the pieces together to fit the pattern.

I did a longer version made from Tumblr tote bags, too:

8  CLOTHING / Costumes: Discussion and Questions / How do I make Starman's Cosmic Staff? on: April 08, 2014 04:48:22 PM
Hi, All -

I could really use some advice :-/ I'm working on a Jack Knight Starman cosplay for upcoming C2E2 and I'm not quite sure how to approach making the top of the staff.

I'm planning on doing the rod part out of PVC pipe, but the scoop at the top has me a bit worried. I could use some suggestions.

Thanks for the props ^^ Truth be told, the Malajube one is my favorite, too, but that could just be because I love the band so much :-P

The kill Shakespeare is a close second. I thought the zipper would be harder, but it worked great.

I'm gathering another stack of shirts that need to get reconned, so hopefully soon.
10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Brand New Backpack on: July 31, 2013 02:07:51 PM
I've been wanting a new backpack for a long time, but I'm always bouncing between super cheap and super broke, so making one seemed the best option. I didn't want it to be "sporty" and I didn't want it to be a small purse kind of thing. Now I have something big enough to carry whatever I need (even at conventions or conferences). I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

3 Pockets on the outside (scavenged from jeans); 2 pockets on the inside; the straps to close the flap are a repurposed belt.
