1  Patch-up Jeans in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by craftytwin on: December 18, 2010 11:42:34 AM
Last Christmas, I got a pair of nice Bongo jeans.  They flair at the bottom and a few weeks ago they started ripping.  At first it was just threadbare areas and then one of the creases it came with ripped.  I sewed it and the other holes up. Then the crease next to it ripped.  I sewed it up and a few days later, the third rip at a crease on the same leg.
Yesterday, I cut out some colorful fabric for patches and started sewing them on.  I finished this morning and I am at the ready for more holes.
Finished Product:


Take this as a warning you lovers of machine ripped jeans.

2  Snow White Scarf in Knitting: Completed Projects by craftytwin on: November 27, 2010 12:39:53 PM
I've been working on this scarf for a while and I finally finished.  I also have a matching hat on the way. 

I used 9mm needles so it's quite big.

I used a whole skein of white baby yarn and it's about floor to belly button length.

C&C welcome

3  Circle Earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by craftytwin on: November 26, 2010 01:27:25 PM
I've been trying to get most of my Christmas presents done early and these are the earrings I made for my twin sister.  I really hope she'll like them.  I'm going to make a necklace too and any suggestions are welcome.

4  Purple and Black Tanktop Shirt (lots of pictures) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by craftytwin on: November 26, 2010 11:17:24 AM
I made this shirt a while ago but I thought I should share it because it was my first clothing project for me.  The design is quite simple.

You can also add a belt for more definition.

The length is adjustable and it's just a big pillow case with straps.

Be careful with the armpits I made mine too long.

I hope you can make your own.

5  Hemp Reef Coil Bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by craftytwin on: November 26, 2010 10:44:19 AM
I made this bracelet out of a ball of hemp the my dog had ripped to pieces.  It tied all sorts of lengths of hemp together in a string longer than me.  When I tied it together I tied a double knot with enough extra to then tie a double over hand knot which doesn't slip out.  I know you can't read the picture but the pictures should work.  If you need help with it comment or buy the book. The Handbook of Knots by:  Maria Costantino

I wrapped the rope around a large baby food jar but it's slightly too small so make sure the jar fits before you wrap it. 

I wrapped the string around but made sure that the top and bottom strings had at least six inches free.  I wrapped the tails in opposite directions (important) and then tied them in a double knotted bow. 

This is the bracelet off my wrist.

On my Wrist.

A Better one

Comments and Criticism welcome.  I hope you like it.

6  Batik fabric haibow in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by craftytwin on: September 26, 2010 10:05:09 AM
This is my first post and it's quite a simple project.  Sorry if the pictures are bad, I had to use my phone. I was digging through my fabric bin looking for an idea when I found a small swath of Batik fabric.  There was only a little bit so I thought it would be cool to make a Bow w/ Hairband.  I made my bow 3 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches.  I cut two pieces of the fabric and sewed them together.  I flipped them and then ironed the piece.  I used fabric glue to hold the flipping hole together instead of sewing it.  I folded it accordion style and then held it closed and attached it with strip of fabric.

I hand sewed the bow onto the hair band and...Vwala a specially made hair bow.
