41  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Skeleton Gloves on: November 22, 2005 10:46:46 AM
Heh, I stole these gloves from Frank Iero, My Chemical Romance guitarist:

The three open fingers come in handy for sewing, typing, etc. Actually, I'm wearing them right now and I don't think I've typo'd yet...

I started out with a pair of black gloves, so all I really did was skelefy them. Hope you like!
42  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Punk Mole for National Mole Day on: October 21, 2005 03:12:35 PM
   Yup, this weird little dude was my chemistry project. National Mole Day is a day to celebrate the mole, a unit of measurement that equals 6.02 x 10^23, and our assignment was to make a creative project that had to do with moles. Then today we had a big party and played games and things  Grin. So here's Avogadro, the punk mole:

His eyes are very different and wonkily-placed so he looks a bit crazed, and when you shake him he headbangs in a quite awesome manner. Plus, he's wearing a pink boa because he's secure in his molesculinity (har har har). Sorry for the kinda-crappy pictures ><
43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / My Chemical Romance Jacket on: October 11, 2005 09:47:47 PM

Reconstructed from a huge thrift-store hoodie. The front pocket's a bit blank though; any suggestions? Nothing emo/depressing/suicidal  Tongue. Hope you like it!
44  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Penny Arcade Pacman Shirt on: July 15, 2005 04:59:14 PM
This is basically just adding orange sleeves to a yellow shirt and stencilling a pacman, but here's Gabe's shirt from Penny Arcade (http://www.penny-arcade.com/):

45  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Because Vader is a Ladies' Man on: July 12, 2005 01:56:10 PM

     The Vader stencil is from http://grrl.com/starwarsstuff.html, and I know I've seen the arm-tying idea somewhere, so this top isn't really my design, but I needed a pink Darth  Tongue. I'm thinking of outlining the stencil in hot pink puff paint. Hope you like!
46  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Mindless Self Indulgence Hoodie with Insane Mohawk on: July 10, 2005 01:03:40 PM
OK, get ready for a swift kick to the fashion sense! The front:

The back:

And the grande finale, the mohawk (forgive my vacant expression):

        The back says "One of these shapes is not like the others," which is a line from the Mindless Self Indulgence song Unsociable. It's much easier to read in real life...for some reason it came out blotchier than it is in the picture. The mohawk was inspired by the Dino Hoodie (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=19651.0) and made in basically the same way. It goes all the way down the hood in alternating pink and purple sparkly fur, which I got for free from distinctivefabric.com. It only takes two free swatches of each color. The original hoodie was only $8.00 at Kohl's, and it had a Hawaiian flower on the front that I covered with "MSI." Hope you like it, or at least get a laugh out of it!
47  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pink Floyd patchwork shirt on: June 22, 2005 05:53:21 PM
   This shirt came from two shirts from a thrift store; a green one that fit me well and a blue one that was way too big. I couldn't really get a good picture of the end product, but here's basically what it looks like:

    Sorry about the boobshot  Roll Eyes. Basically I just tightened the blue shirt's sleeves and cut it off right under the sleeves. Then I cut the green the same way and sewed the blue top and green bottom together. The words say "Look mummy! There's an airplane up in the sky!" and the bottom says "Pink Floyd." It didn't come out as good as I hoped, but it's aight. Hope you like it  Cheesy
48  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / Where To Find Things To Recycle / DistinctiveFabrics free fabric swatches on: June 13, 2005 10:45:31 AM
     OK, credit for this one goes to flyinpurplemunkiez (go check out her thread here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38330.0). If you go to http://www.distinctivefabric.com/, you get 10 free fabric swatches just for signing up (it's free, but you need a credit card.) Then, you get 10 more every time you place an order. My swatches haven't arrived yet, so I'm not sure how big they are, but I'm sure they're great for scraps, quilting, etc.
49  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Suggest New Boards and New Features / User Portfolios on: June 08, 2005 07:46:39 PM
     One feature that I've always thought would be good is to have individual user portfolios. Whenever somebody wants to post a new craft of theirs, they could post on the appropriate board but also add it to their portfolio along with a tutorial (if they have one.) That way, if you like something that one user has made, you could easily find more things by them without scrolling through pages of "view this member's last posts." If you wanted to get fancy, you could even divide the portfolios into sections (clothes, purses, misc, etc.) I'm sure a TON of work would have to go into this, and maybe it's impractical, but it's an idea.
50  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Huge Thrift Store Pants to Crazy Fall Skirt (really image heavy!) on: June 08, 2005 12:43:47 PM
Okay, here are three thrift store finds, none of which fit me (nor would I want them to):

Here's what they looked like when I was done:

I'm pretty sure I'm going to make a matching purse with this on it:

I did this all with VERY minimal sewing skills (I've never sewn clothes before; I've barely sewn at all) so I'm pretty confident that anyone could do it. Hope you like!
