11  yet another circle skirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by XOcrazy4uXO on: May 30, 2006 10:04:02 AM
I've been looking at all of the circle skirts on here,
and wanted to make one of my own, but I didnt know how it would turn out.
So, I made one for my sister (who's 5) as a test - figuring it wouldnt use as much fabric.

full view:

aciton shot:

overall, I'm really happy with it. Now I'm going to make one for myself!
The best part is that it only took me about 45 min/1 hour to make.
(I used pink_dinosaur's tutorial - it worked great! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=86002.0 )

feedback appreciated!

okay, so today was the last day of school, and we were cleaning out our lockers,
and my friend was about to THROW AWAY this lamp she made in shop class.

well, i told her i'd take it off her hands  Wink i mean, cmon, free lamp!

but basically, its really plain - i want to decorate it. i was thinking decopauge or paint??
tell me your ideas.

16  button bulliten board. in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by XOcrazy4uXO on: May 07, 2006 12:58:56 PM
so we were cleaning out the basement, and i noticed an old bulliten board in the trash pile.
well, it looked perfectly usable, just a little old. so i spruced it up  Cheesy

i painted the entire board black, then hot glued citrus colored buttons around the edges.
(please excuse the lame things on it - i just slapped some stuff on for the effect)

to hold the items ON my new bulliten board, i made matching button pushpins  Grin
(this is only a few - i tried placing them so you could see the front & backs)

and WALA! there you have it.
comments are always loved  Cheesy

okay so i know sesame street is intended for toddlers,
but i couldnt resist this fabric - so i made it into a bag.

here's the full view - i used yellow ribbon for the straps

close up of fabric [sorry the lighting stinks]

the inside of the purse is lined with the same color yellow as the straps,
and is complete with a pocket for my junk + cell phone.

any comments would be appreciated Smiley

18  polka dots & ruffles & a sundress, OH MY in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by XOcrazy4uXO on: May 06, 2006 12:24:26 PM
please excuse my title, i got a little carried away.
anyway, i made this sundress for my little sister [who is five]
i started out using a pattern, but it got too confusing so i kind of made it my own

dress lying on the floor. the bottom has two "tiers" of ruffles [gatherings]

close up of top [the fabric looks almost snakeskin-like here, but its reg. cotton]

and finally, an action shot [twirling to make bubbles]

what do you think?  Grin

19  Re: Holy Splattered Boombox in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by XOcrazy4uXO on: April 11, 2006 03:22:23 PM
first off, that shirt is amazing. i want one.
which is why i searched for the awesome 80s font,
which i found and downloaded.
so i thought id share the boombox plain text with everyone so they can use it:

and of course you could adjust the size to your liking  Wink
