31  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 2 ENTRIES / Black & pink (sorta) punk outfit for 2 year old! on: June 26, 2005 12:38:35 PM
This sweet little girl is my future sis-in-law. She's 2 1/2 years old and mommy dresses her like a girly-girl. Princess stuff, flowery, glittery, fur trim "cheerleader" shirt....yuck. So I made her this little outfit.
(Shirt says "Don't Worry, Be Happy")
SHIRT>>> i liked the shirt the way it was so i just snipped at the collar a bit, shortened the sleeves and added lace detail.

SKIRT>>>The skirt is made from another shirt. I didn't take a before pic so here's a bad MS paint rendition of the shirt.

Cut out two rectangle pieces, turned them so the lines were vertical, added some black knit on the sides (so it would fit), simple casing, elastic, viola!
"Don't worry, Be happy" Shirt---$0.99
striped shirt- $0.75
other-elastic, small bit of lace, black knit scraps

Thanks for looking!
32  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / SHOES!!! on: May 31, 2005 05:25:10 PM

I love shoes....
I used Bic permanant markers instead of sharpies cuz sharpies have a weird look to them if used on a sorta glossy surface. I screwed the boots up bad so just colored them completely except the one part that's checkered. The other shoes were my second stab at checkered shoes.
The button shoes....they started out preppy lightblue and white with a bow. EW. Bow came off, colored over the light blue with black Bic. Also colored over blue line on sole with Bic. Black scuffs everywhere. New idea. Button jar is now half empty.
I have some black heels I want to do something to but I don't know what yet....
Okay, thanks for looking.
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / sewing elastic to knit fabric, ball point needles on: May 25, 2005 05:04:56 PM
Okay. So I have this 2inch elastic I want to sew to the bottom of a tee shirt to make a skirt. Please tell me if I'm thinking of how to do this right. Stretch the elastic but not the fabric. Right?

Oh, and how do I tell if any one my needles are ball point?
34  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Old jeans gonna be new top...maybe... on: May 01, 2005 05:41:43 PM
This isn't even my style or won't be but this just cam to me in a fit of madness. All I've done so far is cut the legs off at the knees and cut the inseam. I put it on to see if it would fit (too lazy to measure) and it did. Here's a pic of that.

Next I'll do the whole skirt thing with the ripping of seams and sewing so it all lays flat. then I'll add some darts. I'm thinking I may have to add a zipper or something up one side to make it easy to get off and on. Hmm... But yeah...Gonna give it a go. We'll see...
35  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / a question about GLUE!!! on: April 29, 2005 11:17:23 PM
So there's a Nintendo controller belt I wanna make. some one else on here made one and she used E6000 glue. I've seen that glue mentioned elsewhere on this site. Can someone explain this glue to me and why it's special? I was just gonna use super glue but if this is better, i want to know why before I set out trying to find some. Thanks!
I don't want kids for myself so I spend lots of time with my friends' kids. I'm so stoked cuz they're all sorta getting to an age where they can DO stuff and I want to help them make gifts for momma this year. They range in age from 18 months to 26 months. Any and all ideas are welcome!!!
37  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Did this scarf make a cute skirt or what!? on: April 24, 2005 01:04:59 PM
So this is the first thing I've made that I've posted. I'm stoked. This site rules. It's so awesome to have found something to where I can get questions answered, get inspiration and not feel like a freak cuz I don't know anyone else under 30 who sews. Anyway, like a circle skirt only a square with the tummy of a plain black tee for a waistband, this literally took minutes. And to think this scarf was in my "donate" pile.
 *not sure what I'm doing with the picture stuff so I hope this works*
I'm not new to recon stuff. Been doing it for years but nothing like the super creative stuff I've been seeing on here. I am also posting a pic of a Columbia (from Rocky Horror Picture Show) costume i made for my sister. Some loose black pants cut into shorts with glitter puffy paint stripes are the shorts. The top is a black skirt worn hiked up that I glued a million pieces of sequins to and the jacket is aplain black blazer covered with glitter puffy paint. i also used glitter puffy paint on plain black shoes but dont' have those pictured. Took me a weekend and cost maybe $10. She gets mad compliments whenever we go to a Rocky show. I don't know. It's something i'm proud of so I want to show it off. Ayway, hope this pic works, too. *crosses fingers*
 here goes....
