craft of the day!

22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / raggle taggle gypsy - raw edge denim/lace/satin/sequin wallets !!! on: July 05, 2005 11:41:45 AM
I made these today...from old clothes and vintage fabric.

PURSE 1 (back is plain denim)



What do people think? If I can make enough I might try selling them...would you buy something like this? They are quite intricate with applique and sequins.
23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / black velour hoody + vintage jersey + sequins! on: June 04, 2005 11:39:16 AM
Well I started off with my old black velour hooded jacket... and I found this massive grey jersey in my mum's material scraps box, which was my dad's about 25 years ago when he used to run a company in York called "GreenTree" - they would go to countries like India, Pakistan, Egypt and Persia and bring back ethnic crafty things to sell in their shop. Anyway he drew the designs for the jersey (which was screen-printed) and I love it so much so I've been keeping it! The pictures don't show the tree very well - it's really detailed and has lots of little birds sitting in it.

I basically cut round the words (and the tree!) and hand-stitched them onto the front of the jacket, either side of the zip, and then added a liberal sprinking of sequins!!

P.S. my dad was slightly freaked out to see his past coming back to haunt him...in hooded form! I like it though  Wink
24  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / floral cord skirt -> dress... with rubbish pics! :) on: June 01, 2005 04:32:37 AM
Well I suppose this is quite a simple transformation but I wanted a summery dress and I had this gorgeous skirt that was just a bit too long... I basically pulled the skirt up like a dress, pinched around the bust and waist, pinned it and then hand-sewed a few small pleats to make it the right shape. Then I added purple ribbon "straps" (It doesn't really need them but I think they look nice!) and voila!

On the floor...

On me (sorry for the awful pic!!)

I made this at 1am this morning (couldn't sleep!)

26  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bulky poloneck into boho cardigan! with tutorial on: March 27, 2005 04:05:32 AM
well I started off with a very bulky poloneck jumper that was headed for the "sell on ebay" pile....but I love the fabric too much to get rid of it (it's like very fluffy black flannel-type stuff, with sparkles all over) so decided to turn it into a cardigan last night.

rather badly drawn tutorial

front view (sorry for pic quaility - my camera doesn't do black fabric very well!


27  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / fabric 'Flower' corsage on: March 25, 2005 11:06:21 AM
I've been making some weird little 'flower' corsages, out of old blue fabric, sequins, lace, silver stuff...

28  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reconstructed khaki skirt with lace on: March 25, 2005 11:04:47 AM
Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and this was my first proper 'reconstruction' project a couple of weeks ago.
Just realised I don't have a pic of the original skirt, which is really annoying, but basically it was v long and very very slightly flared but almost straight.
Anyway I bought the skirt on ebay for about 2 and the lace also on ebay for about 1...and then cut the skirt in half, and removed a section from the middle of about a foot...then made pleats in the bottom section and sewed it back onto the top section. Finished off with the lace round the bottom. I've got loads of nice comments when wearing it, and I'm really pleased with the skirt! Sorry the picture is a bit rubbish, my iron is broken so as you can see it's all rather creased! Never mind  Wink
