21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Crop Shirt Re-Con on: February 10, 2007 03:33:45 PM
I dont know about this, this is a re-con gone bad. I resized it, fixed the sleeves and the I added this thick band at the bottom, but it was toooooo small, so I cut the bottom off then poked holes into it and threaded some shirt through it with a safety pin. I dont know if I like it...opnions?

22  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / T-Shirt Corkboard on: February 01, 2007 08:13:23 PM
I know this isnt very clever, but I like the way it turned out. I went to home depot and bought one of those ceiling type tiles that look kinda like corkboard? Well, I was going to come home and get all crafty with fabric but got lazy. I took an old tee, sewed it into a square and covered the tile with it. Then I staple gunned the back down and then staple gunned the webbing and then...HERE! All for about..$5 bucks..The tile cost 3.00


I like it...It's simple.

26  CLOTHING / Clothing for Curvaceous Craftsters: Completed Projects / Jean Skirt from Jeans...FRAYED AND HOLED UP! Added a pic of a polo shirt recon. on: March 29, 2006 05:18:32 AM
I had bought these as jeans that were to big from Old Navy. So I made them into a mini, took a power tool to it and frayed the heck out of it making random holes here and there. Then I added a hem at the bottom so it wouldnt fray to much, washed it three times in a row with a cap full of bleach and that made it soft. Here is the result. It is to cute on. I love it! I have seen in these in so many magazines, but they didnt make it in my size...surprised? NOT!



PS..Here is me in it....Smiley

ADDED ON 4/3/06
I added this because I didnt want to make another whole post for it, I made this from a POLO I saved from SAL AL, added the stencil of the Tiger, which faded like mad in the wash, and Made the sleeves ruffly. THANKS!

I would be wearing, but it just came out the washer !..lol
27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Necklace and Earring Holders Out Of Old Records on: January 29, 2006 08:59:52 AM
Ok...I didnt know where else to put this in forum land, so I figured it was reconstructed to use to hold jewelry, why not here???

This holds all of my earrings. I measured out where I would drill the holes and the marked it with a piece of masking tape and then drilled above it where the holes would go. It holds about 50 pairs of earrings. It is so useful.

I made this out of a record also, for all of my necklaces, I did the same thing, marked it off with masking tape. But, I used a lighter to light the tips of push-pins and then push it into the record, it went right in like a hot butter knife. Then I used a pair of metal cutters to clip off the pointy part in the back.

Simple, but I think that it is very useful for someone like me.
And another thing that I use to organize all of my jewelry is tackle boxes....maybe that may help anyone who is a jewelry-whore like me..lol.

30  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Make Pretty Jeweled Flower Pins/Hair Clips.....WITH TUT on: May 17, 2005 07:59:10 PM

I made these, some are pins, some are hair clips. I love them, perfect for summer.

You Need:
Fake Flower
Tacky Glue
Hot GLue Gun

First, take apart your flower and iron it flat if needed.  So that it looks just like this. With no middle or any backing.

Then, take your rhinstone backing and push it through the back of the flower, making sure you go through all the layers. *YOU MAY NOT WANT A THICK FLOWER, JUST SOMETHING A LITTLE ON THE THINNER SIDE*
Then, put your rhinestone inside of the prongs *IT MAY MOVE AROUND A BIT*

Take your thimble and push the prongs inward to make the rhinstone stay in place.

Place some hot glue on the pin back or hair clip and glue the flower in place.

They will look like this, depending on what you used for the backing

Then glue rhinstones on them, however you please. But dont go overboard, remember less is more sometimes.

Hope that was clear enough, sorry the pics suck, but my cam needs batteries.
I WANT TO SEE YOURS TOO! Any questions? Just ask!
