These are all really good. Cheesy I must say the last one is my favorite but that might be partly because I can see what it actually looks like on you. I agree with you on taking pictures with it on yourself or a dress form next time. It give us a better idea of what it looks like. But good job. Smiley Keep up the good work.

maybe I will have to take pictures when I get home and add them  Tongue
(I made one more since this posting too so I can add that one)

I would love to join this "Destash-Along" but I don't have much in the way of materials. I only have fabrics thus far. I want to get into knitting, since my mother is a knitting machine and has as much yarn as a yarn store(no joke... Smiley)
I will try and make some things along the way!!

I would love to learn to make wallets and purses from the fun materials I do have...

Maybe even some new dog toys for my puppy as she likes to squeeze the squeaker out somehow then rip all the stuffing out (sigh)

Maybe a few little clutches or coin purses or make-up bags!

Oh the possibilities as I keep thinking.

Good luck everyone  Grin Can't wait to see some of the projects!

I have a question ladies and hopefully someone will have a good answer or I will get many different suggestions   Cheesy

I have a few pairs of jeans that I have had forever and they are too small now to wear or are ripped...

Any good ideas for what to make the jeans into?
I'm not a big skirt person, but I love tunic style tops/dresses.
I would hate for the jeans to go to waste and would love to make something new out of them.

Help?!  Huh
209  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / First post/first attempt/first success!! on: December 22, 2010 10:29:48 AM
I decided yesterday at work that I wanted to make a new dress to wear to my husbands families Christmas Eve party/dinner. I drew up a design and everything, but when I got home and layed out the fabric and clothing, it just did not look as good as I hoped.
So I grabbed my scissors and sat and thought for a few minutes and came up with the perfect dress. Looks like something you would buy in the store(at least I think so  Wink )

Here is what I did::

I started with a black shirt, a purple dress and some leopard print furry fabric
I put on the shirt and pinned where I wanted to leopard print waste band to go
Cut the shirt, front and back
Cut a 5 inch wide piece of the leopard print fabric that the length matched.
(did 5 inches because it needed to be cut in half the long way and stitched at the end to make one long piece)
Flipped the top of the shirt inside out, placed the leopard print fabric so when it would be turned right-side-out it would show  Wink
Pinned it all down and sewed it
Grabbed the purple dress, cut off the skirt and placed it on the leopard print part of the "new top"
Did a simple pleating for the whole front of the dress which made it so the whole back of the skirt would lay flat.
Hand stitched the pleats in place along the front
Machine sew along the pleats to secure and all along the back
And you're done!
Sorry I did not take step by step pictures, did not honestly think it would turn out!!

((Since this is my first post I can't put pictures in here, but here are the links!!))

210  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / quick and easy holiday treats!! on: December 22, 2010 08:33:50 AM
I want to make little "tins" for my husbands cousins and aunts/uncles for Christmas Eve but I just do not know what to make that will be quick and easy to make Friday during the day...

I was thinking Chocolate toffee and pretzels with the kisses but I want more Grin

My husband thinks I'm nuts for wanting to make different things, he thinks the chocolate toffee would be enough but I don't think so  Wink

What do you guys think, any ideas??
