1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / USBracelet on: September 17, 2010 06:37:52 PM
So I saw this: http://www.shop4tech.com/item9440.html?siteID=lw9MynSeamY-kh0ZlOtw_78IfQSVXQte_w

and thought it was a fantastic idea! But, I already HAD a flash drive, and this one was kind of ugly. Plus I am a nerdy girly-girl. So I made my own:

Here's what I started with:

I untied the knot on the bracelet and took off the keychain from the USB drive. I tied one end of the bracelet to the USB drive, took off a couple of beads so the bracelet wouldn't be too big. Then I glued a flat bead onto the cap for the drive, and tied the other end of the string thru it.

Here it is un-capped for use:

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / ATTENTION! Please post your cheapest clothing or outfit! on: May 25, 2005 05:35:18 PM
So I went to Joanns (LUV them) and they were having half-off all the clearance stuff. Usually the remnants are 1 yard or less, 50% off the regular price. So this fabric was just one yard exactly, $1.50 reg.price, half off the half off, and so I paid $0.37, plus I calculated $0.22 for the elastic, and some thread I got a spool for $0..50. My grand total for this skirt was $0.59. I also used the remnant to add to a top to match, but I don't have a pic of it yet.


Now it's your turn. Show me yours! I'm really curious to know what everyone else has made, especially if it was for less than a dollar.
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Jeans to Skirt recon- 2 Skirts from the Same pair of Jeans on: May 24, 2005 04:47:31 PM
So I had these "strech" jeans, and my rear being the way that it is, they became worn and started to tear holes right in the seat (below the pockets) So I wanted to be as frugal as possible and get as much out of them as I could.
My inspiration for the first skirt was a skirt I saw on gojane.com that looked like the top of a pair of jeans with a ruffly skirt attached. I cut the jeans above the crotch seam, and jsut 1" below the back pockets(for seam allowance) and added a large circle skirt, just a large circle cut out of some jersey I got for $1.50 for one yard. It looked kind of plain, so then I added some sparkly blue trim to the seam line.

here's my version, again with no pattern on either:


and here's a view of my hiney:


The butterfly rhinestone thingy is just a pin, it comes off so I can accessorize in other ways.

Then I had the entire bottom of the jeans, still attached by the inseam, so I cut the legs open, and added more jersey material for the side panels and waistband ( with flower print this time) so it would fit properly, and now I had 2 skirts from one pair of jeans!

Heres a view of the front:


and the side:

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 Pink Tops on: May 20, 2005 10:39:30 AM
So.. Since I am obsessive-compulsive, I have been working on about 14 projects at the same time-

Here are 2 tops I made with a Simplicity pattern ( don't have the number) and please excuse my goofy faces

The first one I really impressed myself, because all the seams are straight, and I didn't have to rip any out and redo it!!! Yay me:


aaaand, this one I used a remnant of 7/8 yard that I got for a whopping .70 cents!

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Patternless outfit on: May 19, 2005 02:11:57 PM
I learned how to sew when I was about 9, but I have recently taken it up again. So here is a top I made by cutting the fabric the right size using another top I had, and designing it to my liking. The skirt is some old Calvin Klein jeans I had that the "inseam" was starting to wear thin and tear (they're 3 1/2 years old) and I saw the reconstructed jeans idea on craftster, so they were going to be an experiment, but I love my skirt. It's really tattered, so I mostly wear it for lounging around the house, and for crafting in!

anyway, enough of the rambling, here's the top and front of the skirt:

and here's the back:
