11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Load o stuff, 3 tops, 1 skirt (many pics)(probably too many) on: November 14, 2007 02:10:51 PM
Hi! I havent posted in ages, i've been preoccupied with school and stuff (grrr!) but heres some stuff that I've been doing since about September.
This was made out of a strange hoodie nightie thing with short sleeves. I added the sleeves (which isn't actually that hard to do), and lined the hood with fleece, and chopped off the bottom.

The red strings were a shoelace  Grin

The sleeves are really long, which is good, and with thumb holes!
The top i did a little stencil on and i made the circle skirt (sorry, its not actually reconed)

Little bird stencil on top

I made the waistbant for the circle skirt just out of my head! And it actualy worked! There are little green buttons

This used to be my school jumper Cheesy but now i'm in the 6th form we dont have to wear uniform (yay!). I didn't want to waste it so i sewed on some green buttons and stenciled this little owl on it

You cant really see it very well here. I drew it out of my head and scaned it in to the computer to resize it and neaten it up a bit. Here it is so you can see it better

And thats it! Hope you like them  Smiley
12  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pretty easy top from striped nightie pic weighty on: July 30, 2007 11:42:04 AM
My grandma gave me this nightie aaaages ago when i stayed over her house and forgot my pjs ( Roll Eyes ). I descovered it today in the bottom of my pj drawer and decided to do something with it. I stumbled on this after some experimenting. (In a stroke of genius i took some pictures to show my thought process! woohoo!)

Before. It was more like a giant tshirt than a nightie. Which is stupid.

If i pull it down like this..


All i did was tie the sleeves together at the back (as shown above)

After bunching the sides up and sewing i got this!  

The back.

And the sides to show the bunching.
I quite like it, although its not something id usualy wear, as it doesnt have straps. I'll probably wear it with the green top underneat like in the pictures.
Let me know what you think!
13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Just a tote..but in the cutest valentines fabric! on: July 17, 2007 05:25:18 AM
I know its nowhere near valentine's day, but i got this cute fabric a wile ago in the sale box (woo!). The bag is quite huge, i might use it for school when we go back, depending on how much stuff i have to carry around

It has poppers inside to close it.
Here are some close ups of the fabric-

Oh, yeah, and its self lined and has interfacing.
Its not really anything particularly special or complicated, but i just had to share the fabric! Smiley
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / top from 1/2 a pillowcase *WITH TUTE on pg 3* on: July 06, 2007 07:20:18 AM
Hows that for an imaginative title?
The blue bits are from a top i bought because it was in the sale rail and it was huge and i liked the colour. The stripy bits are from (surprise surprise) 1/2 an old pillowcase, i dont really know what happened to the other half though...

The pillowcase had some wierd rusty stains on it that wouldnt come off, but you cant really see them (hopefuly). And there are white chalk marks from when i was making it on the top.

The pillowcase wasn't wide enough to accomodate my hips, so i made these little triangles out of some leftovers. (more chalk lines)

Detail of the little pink heart shaped buttons i sewed on the top (they came from some knickers!  Grin) It needed something to link the top with the bottom , else it looked too seprate.
I hope you like it, it's the most professional looking recon I've done so far. I may actualy be able to wear it out  Shocked!
The End.
15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / A small bunch of t-shirt recons on: May 17, 2007 07:12:57 AM
I got a new camera so i can post pictures now!

(excuse the wierd little mousey face)(oh, and my happy new fern!) This one is just a flowery t that was really short and a little too patterned for my liking, so i added a bit of red t in the middle. It worked quite well because of the red around the neck.

It may not look like much, but this is my most complex recon yet. I pretty much winged it the whole way through  Roll Eyes. It looks alright but there wasn't enough purple fabric so i had to add annother bit of black around the bottom, so i'm not sure about it  Undecided I think maybe it looks like it was ment to be stripey, but its not. Oh well!

This one's just a stencil. The t was just too plain before. But it started to come off when i washed it, even though it's acrilic. Does anyone know why?
Well there you go, they're not particularly special, but i hope you like!

16  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / I copied your wonderful clutch bag... on: May 17, 2007 06:23:26 AM
I made this bag from the tutorial here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0

It was for my leaver's day (pretty much the same a a prom, but during the day). I had my dress made by a friend of my mum and i made this from the extra fabric. I'm pretty pleased with how it came out, it doesn't look quite like the origonal but i had trouble trying to work out how to to the top band, so in the end i changed it a bit. I also added a little wrist strap so i could carry it more easily.
What do you guys think?
17  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Little ninja and alien chums on: May 13, 2007 11:46:39 AM

I made them from felt, aren't they cute? I think it looks like the ninja has a weeny crush on the alien, don't you?
I still haven't thought of names for them yet, its a very serious business is naming stuffies  Tongue
Oh yeah, my friend asked me to make her a little clown like them, to help get over her phobia, so i'll be posing that after i get round to making it.
Hope you like!
18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / ANNOTHER 20s style dress!for GCSE textlies on: March 14, 2007 12:23:02 PM
I did this dress for my textiles coursework, as we had to make an outfit from an era in the 20th century. Everyone else did the 60s and stuff but i was different! Grin The sleeves are kinda icky and it is slightly too small around the bust area Embarrassed but the examiners dont know that so its ok! i wont get the marks back till august but my teacher seems to think i could get an A for it!

the picture quality is a bit crummy as my brother took it with his phone the morning befor it was due to be handed in.
i did the embroidery on the front by hand (its ment to be a peacock feather but you cant really see)
Oh yeah and the little thing im holding is cluch that i also made for it.
19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Finally, my first thing from a pattern! A plaid skirt. on: December 12, 2006 10:14:43 AM
I had the pattern for ages, I had the fabric for almost as long, but did that stop me from leaving it for months before actually getting round to making it? Nope.

Its blue and black plaid with a pretty piece of lace round the bottom, which you can see in this picture:

I think it turned out alright (for a first time anyway) but i dont like the way it hangs, so I'm going to make a petticoat to go underneath. I turned slightly to the side in the picture, so you cant see the bad way it hangs at the front, also, you cant see the vastness of my hips either, woo!  Grin I would also like to say Thank God For Tights.
20  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / neigh, neigh, neigh! Horses t-shirt on: December 10, 2006 06:18:10 AM
I traced this horse from a picture in a book and stenciled it onto my t-shirt. You can hardly see the first horse because its practically the same as the t-shirt. i used a sparkly gold colour for the last one and a mixture of the two for the middle one. I think the stencil came out pretty good on the mane and tail, but on the middle one i got a bit carried away with the paint so it looks like it has a club foot Undecided

i have a giant arm! BTW its not my t-shirt thats all dirty its the mirror.
