1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 2 new shirts and a pair of pants on: October 15, 2005 09:52:23 PM
#1 i this made for my friends show. their bands name is Invictus and their slogan is Master of your Fate Captain of your Soul (its from a poem incase you havent read it) i had drawn this for tshirts they were gonna make but never did. so i made one myself.

#2 i made this for my first homecoming (as an alumni) i went dispite the fact that i knew i was going to see michael and his new little girlfriend. and of course...i did...freaked out a lil bit too. but i decided when i chose to go, i was going to look hot. so i made a new shirt that had nothign to do w/ my highschool it was a medium lil boys shirt from walmart (their clothes are better than ours). and i wore my crazy pants that i have been adding on to since my freshman year (i will post pix of them too)

ok. now the pants.


<< incase you cant see the details im gonna tell u about. i put some close up pix of them too >>
these were the kind that had all of the bleached effects on them so they wore pretty fast. there was a BIG hole int he butt i i took pockets from pants i didnt wear anymore and sewed & pinned them on.

i took one off and put a funky lil patch over the hole.

i sewed a pound puppy patch (from the old pound puppies) above the right butt.

i also had cut some random holes in the front. one was a lil too close to the crotch so i covered it with a patch.

they also came up really high on my short waist so i cut of the waistband, that ruined the zipper. so i took out the zipper and cut holes and used this ribbon to lace up the "fly"

then they were just not staying up...sooo i cut the waist band off of another pair of pants and safety pinned it all the way around

(yeah i know they are once again high on my waist).
so basically they are the frankenstein monster of pants.
2  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / baby book on: September 09, 2005 02:52:24 PM
i didnt know where to put this. i mean i didnt make the journal myself...but i didnt the interier myself (me and my friend nicole) we made this baby book for our friend because they dont make them for the "teenage daddy that isnt with teenage mommy because shes crazy-insane." unfortunately i forgot to take updated pictures after we finished it..so this was what we did the first night.

cover (later it said RILEY in paper cut outs)

on daddy page i made the lil dreamcatcher...pain in the butt.

grandparents page says "becoming grandparents sufficiently removes us from responsibilities so that we can be friends"

for either her hand and foot prints or the pictures his mother took of her hands and feet

we did a lot more pages but like i said i forgot to take pictures of them. (all of the pencil was also outlined with a felt-tip pen.)
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / skirt => shirt on: August 23, 2005 05:30:40 PM
i had bought a straight skirt at a local thrift store, but i never wore it. so i decided to make it into a shirt...i didn't use the top sheer layer...i couldnt quite figure out how.
         heres what i ended up with.


Doesn't look that flattering in the picture...i might do some more alterations.
4  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / another duct tape purse on: August 17, 2005 03:21:13 PM

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / corset-ish top on: June 20, 2005 12:03:24 PM

*the blue is my bra not part of the shirt*

6  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / DIY book on: June 11, 2005 12:09:39 AM
This probably doesn't seem like much...but i'm kind of excited about it. I wish I had thought about making the pages more creative but now it's pretty much too late. But anyway, I made this book for my ex-boyfriends lil sisters 14th birthday. She is getting into the whole DIY thing and so I wrote down a bunch (and I'm still adding to it) of the tutorials I have found over the past few years. Some from this site some from others. I just got a simple folder and wrote out the tuts. on plain notebook paper and then to make it somewhat spiffy, I made a dedication page, table of contents and numbered all of the pages to make it more...book-ish. I may still go back and decorate the pages some...probably should. And I decoupaged the cover.

heres the inside...see uber boring...

heres the cover...its so exciting to me!!!
I'm going to explain why i chose some of the phrases.
Amanda - obviously, her name.
Freshman year - obviously, going to be a freshman
Lucky Star - she is an actress of sorts
(the big yellow one says) YOUR STYLE - I was too lazy to try and find all of the letters to spell out "do-it-yourself" so i left it with that.
the rest you cant really read. anyways tell me what you think of the cover atleast i know the inside blows....actually tell me what you think of the idea in general. I think I may give her a box I have that i dont use anymore and put a bunch of old shirts, some of my fabric scraps that are cool, and some other lil crafy tid-bits in it. what do you think of that? Huh
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / poker chip earrings on: May 08, 2005 09:23:52 PM
i made these earrings for my prom after party. i was originally going to make them all dangly, but that was a pain in the butt...plus my contacts weren't working so i decided to just glue the 3 chips together like they were stacked.

8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my prom bag on: May 08, 2005 09:18:49 PM
i didn't like any of the hand bags i saw so i decided to simply make one. i didnt use any of the tuts. from the site that i saw, i just kinda made it...but i dont know if i'd be able to redo it exactly. which is unfortunate because my boy's lil sis wants me to make her one just like it. Undecided

this is before i had added the strap or had decided how to fasten it.

here is the finished product

its a lot smaller than i'm used to. but hey thats ok. it held my digital, my phone, eyeliner, lipstick and my DUCKtape wallet i made.
9  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "duck" tape handbag for prom on: April 19, 2005 03:05:41 PM
I bought my prom dress a couple of weeks ago, and have been looking for accesories. I found a bunch of black handbags...unfortunately i am picky and they all had something on it that either i hated or wouldnt go with my dress.
THis is my dress
I only found one handbag that would have matched it...but as you can see it is a li'l too much.

So i had the genious idea to make my own. i had just bought some colored "duck" tape. and decided to make a lil handbag. although i now have to add a few inches on the sides and the top because...its a VERY tight squeeze!!!
well here it is. the first ones are when i stop one day because i didnt know how to make it close. the 2nd is the...semi-finished product.
