11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Dainty meets Imperfect on: June 30, 2005 10:45:51 AM

and yeah, i did take pictures in my washroom...  Roll Eyes

I like how it contradicts itself. The fabric has these nice polka dots and theres a bow at the side to help keep the zipper closed, and then the bottom edge was messily cut and its fraying.

Comments and critiscism welcome Smiley
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Who said puppets weren't cool? on: June 30, 2005 10:28:16 AM
This used to be a huge t-shirt from a camp. My favourite thing about it is the puppet, the mascot for junior camp... its got some ruching on the front and the straps have ribbon tied to it. the back isnt too attractive, so i only wear it under sweatshirts Tongue


and yes, i did take the picture in my bathroom Smiley

comments welcome

14  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Monster Box on: June 30, 2005 10:06:30 AM
I basically just covered the inside and outside of one of those small jewellry boxes using a glue gun. Then i gave it eyes and a tongue for personality  Wink Its awesome because I can keep stuff inside a monster.. ahaha.

16  QUILTING / Quilting: Completed Projects / Death by Pink and Blue on: June 19, 2005 01:45:45 PM
I made this quilt a few summers ago for my sister... gosh, i think i did awesome for like a 10 year old


the white-looking fabric is actually light blue with stars. the pink and blue fabric has got like swirly things on it, and the back is purple with the same kind of design of the pink.
17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Interchangable Stamp/Trinket Necklace on: June 18, 2005 06:09:27 PM
Well, i guess this counts as reconstructed, seeing as i didnt buy the stamps.. They were left over from my collection which dates back to around grade 4. I covered them with clear packing tape so they will last forever! Here it is:

Just the stamps:

The best part about it is that the "jump ring" isnt really a jump ring. It's a really small hoop earring! Which allows me to attach other stuff and charms, like this pink and green guy that has a light (it turns on when you squeeze it)..:

tell me what you think!
18  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / simple, pretty ballet flats *with instructions* on: May 28, 2005 05:33:10 PM
I went thrifting today, and surprise surprise! i found the sweetest ballet flats ever at value village! they're from the gap, and they used to have ugly elastic straps on them, but i cut them off instead. Anyways, after snipping off the straps and adding the bows, here they are:

the shoes

close up of the bow

all you need is some fabric ribbon with contrasting thread and seed beads.

-fold the ribbon in half and sew down the middle with crazy coloured thread. my thread is blue, on the yellow ribbon.
-tie a neat bow with the ribbon and secure it with a bit of fabric glue. I used glue gun to attach the bow to the outside corner of my shoe, but you might be better off using superglue or likewise.
-then add some more glue and while its still wet, push some seed beads into it and let dry.

now you have cool shoes.

what do you think?
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / what i do on the weekends <<craftser inspired! yay>> on: May 23, 2005 12:26:54 PM
Thanks so much to losingstreak for being so cool and inventing the dinosaur spiked hoodie. i couldnt resist making one of my own.

my hood had a lining too, so i had to leave a small opening at the back which i handstitched after, so i could turn it out.

how did i do for a young'n?
