2  Re: classy pleated iridescent clutch TUTORIAL ADDED!!!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: July 15, 2005 11:33:31 AM
here's my version.  I used an old pair of jeans and some plain old wal mart fabric.  The jean holds up well!  It was a little bit of a pain to hand stitch, but i managed to pull it off in one night.  no prob!  I downsized the pattern a tad and added a pocket to the inside, as well.

thanks so much OP for this ridiculously AWESOME tut!!!!  oh mamma!

3  RECON: jeans to skirt --- or is it??? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: July 15, 2005 11:28:03 AM
I had a pair of jeans i just adored, but they had a big hole from a night of drinking and fence climbing..  oops.  But, not only did i make this sweet clutchhttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=24610.0, i made a little something else.....

my living room floor modeling the front

the back

and the best part -- the hidden shorts to make this puppy a skort!

i'm so tricky.  haha.  OKOK, but you guys, this was SO easy to do!  It's unbelievable.  This was my first crack at anything wearable - and i'm so proud!  My sewing skillz suck.. but they kind of blended into the whole messy effect of the recon.  

here's whatcha do:
1. cut off jeans so they are shorts.  If you're skirt is mighty short, make sure your shorts at a few inches shorter than it. rip off back pockets if necessary
2. Cut legs in half lengthwise.  Keep a seam on each end if you want to avoid hemming. (i kept both seams on one side since id idn't plan ahead... but i didn't hem, either.  sucha rebel)
3. Slap the legs in whatever fashion you wish to the shorts.  Pleat, ruffle, straight, whatev.  In the front, the top of the skirt should rest just beneath the zipper.  in the back, the skirt will be about the middle of the pockets.  The most important step is to try it on after the skirt is pinned in place!  If the skirt is too low in back, you'll end up sewing it into your buttcrack...  ew.  
4. SEW, SEW, SEW!  reattach pockets and other such crafty things.
5. put it on, admire it's awesomness in the mirror, and run around town "mooning" people!!

4  my hot-pink schwinn in Completed Projects by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: July 07, 2005 08:34:42 PM
We had this ugly, old, vintage schwinn up north at our cabin.  I figured, what the heck?  I could use a bike at school!  This thing was mighty rusty and definitely needed a paint job.  Of course, being my handy dandy self, i couldn't just paint it ANY color!  haha.  So, hot pink, glow under black light, flourescent paint it is!



Now, as you can see, the seat and grips are still that old blue!!!  and it definitely doesn't match...  I've checked out the local bike shops and the only thing close to matching is some clear, glittery grips.  As for the seat, i'm clueless.  i'm thinking to recover it somehow?  I want to keep the original seat design... anyone with some crafty ideas, please share!!!!  as for the grips, they can go.  whatever works!  

I'm also awaiting a sweet bell from ebay with a cute little pink dinosaur on it.  

thanks for checking out my stuff!! Smiley

UPDATE::: I made a new seat cover - it's while with pink where the blue used to be.... i lost an auction on ebay for some pink grips   Sad Sad, so i'm still looking for ideas for that!

5  "The ugly one" made beautiful to match my dresser! in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: July 07, 2005 08:15:29 PM
for those who missed my dresser revamp, this was it (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=39441.0)

and THIS is my matching peice!!!

The top took lotsssss of work.  I'd like to give a big thank you to wal-mart, menards, and home depot for supplying me with all the paint chips  Smiley  

Basically I sanded and primed over the wood that was oringinally there, painted my based colors, cut the paint chips into 1" squares (to sort of stick with the checkerboard theme of the dresser), mod podged them onto the top.  Then drew on the stars, mod podged a buncha glitter into the drawer holes.  For the inside which i was too lazy to paint, i used spray adhesive to attach it and then mod podged the edges/corners to help it stick. (the spray adhesive was rough to work with..  rar!)  

I am unsure if i should paint the sides of this yet..  if you guys have any input, that'd be great!

thanks for checking out my post!   Smiley

6  Re: contact paper for stenciling? er what... in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: June 15, 2005 12:47:57 PM
the stenciling in all it's glory. (just the words)

it actually didn't take long at all, either -- my only mistake was putting the sticky stuff on a magazine whilst cutting out the letters...  got to spend half the night picking off the backing    Tongue  I just cut a peice of shelf paper to the norm 8.5 x 11 and had my ink jet print right on it.

7  my new, rockstar-esque dresser in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by PuckrUpNkissMoi on: June 15, 2005 11:29:20 AM
Finally, in my senior year of univeristy, i get to move into a house with real live furniture that is all my own!  The problem i ran into was..  where to get the furniture and how to make it rad.  SO, a few weeks later with a free dresser compliments of my dad's coworker, and a few swirls of paint, this is the final creation! 

i'm so proud!   

Now, for the hard part...  figuring out what to do with "The Ugly One" i picked up at a garage sale.

  I've done the sanding and priming so when i finally figured out what to do with it, i could get started right away!  In essence, i want it to match my dresser.  I bought black and silver starred material and WalMart to mod podge onto the inside of the shelf part (the part that's not primed) and was thinking of podging on some pink paint chips to the top of it, but i need some more sweet idears.  Please, please, help!!  I know it has some serious potential, but my creative juices are definitely drained .....    Wink       thanks bunches in advance!

oh ps, this is my first post.  yay!
