1  Re: Bargain Hunter Swap Round 3 (aka the $5 or $10 swap) Gallery in The Swap Gallery by shakes on: December 26, 2007 08:51:24 AM
I got my Package from Laramie28 in last weekend, so now, here's some pictures!

Everything came all bundled up in this awesome cowboy themed pillowcase! I'm going to love sleeping on this!

Got some 'rodeo' letter stamps and this cute vintage-y frame.

Here's a bag of army men, a bag of dinosaurs, and a little pink and brown notebook!

I really love little toys and thinks like this that I can play around with!

Some batik fabric and this tiiiiiny little doggy! Seriously, who doesn't enjoy a good batik now and then.

Really cute clay beads with knitting images on them!

A HUGE pink calorimetry! I love the way it looks with my short hair..

She said took a stab in the dark when buying this, but man, turns out I freaking love octopuses!

On the botton it has '10.26.92 Thurs. Thanksgiving Day' written on it. Charming!

The List!
Stamps- 2.00
Army Men- 1.00
Weird [octopus] Figure- 1.99
Fabric- .99 x 2
Dinos- 1.99
Picture Frame- .59
Knitting Beads- .25
Pillow Case- .59

Thank you sooo so much Laramie28 For being my partner!
This swap has been pretty super! It really threw be back into the swing of swap-y things.

2  Two Shirts Into One I'll Actually Wear- GREEK WEEK 1989 in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shakes on: October 21, 2007 08:21:11 PM
I had a blue and white fitted baseball shirt with a design I don't like and an XXL shirt with a design I really enjoy.

I just cut out the front of the smaller shirt and sewed on the front of the bigger shirt. Does that make sense?
Haha, wonky collar-

The front was going to end up longer than the back so I added a stripe onto it. That makes me happy.

Here's a better picture of the graphic-

Here's another shirt I found thrifting and sized down to fit me-

3  Resized Tee with Bleached Pattern in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shakes on: October 18, 2007 10:43:42 PM
Took a t-shirt with a colour I loved and sewed it down to fit me. Sure it was nice, but I wanted to make something that stood out more.

I used a baby gate fence.. thing and brushed it with bleach and then laid the shirt on that for a few seconds and got this!
Look at me, being all creative and such.  Roll Eyes

Here's the side-

I love wearing this under a hoodie or a blazer.

4  my first non-pattern peice: a hoodie in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by shakes on: June 28, 2006 06:58:42 PM
i had a hoodie that i didn't really like. it was too short and it didn't fit right at all.

so, i cut it up.

i used the peices to help guide me to make this:

i like it better closed (it's not as tight as it looks around my waist)

i lined the hood with light blue

i couldn't find any wood buttons small enough, so i took brown plastic ones and scratched them up with sand paper.
i think there's something wrong with the tension in my sewing maching thouhg, 'cause towards the end it started to pull some of the fabric and it bunched up. i pulled and ironed out all the bunches, but they left some wonky lines in my flower (as seen in the last picture).
can anyone point me to some help for preventing that?

5  red and white, tube top with wraps... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by shakes on: January 17, 2006 04:11:03 PM
i made this over the weekend. when i wear it i want to put a hibiscus behind my ear and lay out in the sun...

i put a little zipper in the side where i attached the long tube of fabric. there's another tube on the other side, but no zipper.

the back, where it can tie around my neck.

this is the fabric, with little boat steering wheels.

this is my most shining patternless achievement! i love it.

8  too short skirt- *finally fixed* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shakes on: August 29, 2005 06:35:06 PM
i started out with this pillow-case circle skirt: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=45663.msg413628#msg413628

with a little help, and the awesome donation of another pillow-case from cataway, turned it into this:

sorry the colours came out weird  Undecided

it's not a lot longer, but it sure is way more wearable than before.
what do you think?

9  batman pillowcase into skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by shakes on: August 03, 2005 06:35:04 PM
i made this last night. sure, it's plain, but i love it.

i like the cinching at the top, it's easier to wear.
the back has the same 'bat-mobile blueprint' background, but it has batman flying instead of the car.

close up of the fabric

it used to say "batman returns" on the bottom on a big red stripe, but i had to cut that off so i could walk

10  too short skirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by shakes on: July 29, 2005 03:37:32 PM
i've decided to quit the lurking and ask for some advice-

i made a skirt recently, and it's way too short. the fabric is from a pillow case, and i used all the fabric to make it, so there's no more.

i don't know if you can see it, but the bottom has two layers of fabric.

i really love this skirt and i don't want to trash it at all, but i can't wear it in public with my bum hanging out.
how can i extend it?
any idea's?
