11  Simply Spray Creations in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Lydia the Strange on: June 09, 2008 09:46:33 AM
It seems like it has been forever since I posted a project on here. So as my first post back from my long hiatus, I bring to you.... Simply Spray Creations!

I won the Resuable Tote bag Challenge way back when and my prize was an awesome collection of Simply Spray fabric paints. I finally was able to put them to good use. My daughters school has a field day every year and all of the classes tye dye tshirts for this event. Every year we use buckets adn RIT dye to make cool shirts, but this year I decided that my daughters class was going to have the coolest shirts ever!

I let all the kids make their own thsirts and they even got to personlize it with a stencil of their choice (came with the simply spray paints).

My oldest daughters class had actually tye dyed their class shirts the old way and my daughter was really unhappy with how it turned out, so we fixed it up with the simply spray and she was so happy with the end result. original the shirt was orange and green (RIT dye) and she brightened it up with purple and blue and added a flower stencil (which did bleed a little when she got wet on the water slide)

Everyone said that our classes had the best shirts! So thank you to Craftster for giving me such a fun craft prize!

I really love the Simply Spray products. They are really easy to use and you can do so many different types of projects with them...even spray paint a couch!

12  We Are So Doomed Recon in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Lydia the Strange on: November 19, 2007 09:01:03 AM
I am absolutely in love with this recon! I purchased this shirt from Tinaseamonster on Etsy ( I own two of her fabulous shirts) and decided to jazz it up a bit and turn it into a hoodie.

I used some left over striped knit fabric that I had lying around and I think it turned out pretty darn good!

13  Skulligan (skulls+cardigan) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Lydia the Strange on: November 10, 2007 12:47:49 PM

One thrift store tee (Banana Republic Short Sleeved Mens size medium)

1 yard of aawesome skull flannel

3 yards of black cotton edging

3 hook and eye sets

I cut off the sleeves of the mens shirt and saved the hem of each sleeve. Using the sleeve from the old tee, I traced the base and then free handed the arm length on some skull fabric. Next I sewed up the sleeves and used the old sleeves hemming for the new sleeves. I attatched the new sleeves to the old grey tee.

Next, I cut the hemming off the grey tee and added a new border using the skull fabric. I also cut off the neck of the grey tee to make it wider. I cut down the center of the front of th etee to make an opening and attatched the black cotton edging all around the edge (including the neck area).

Sew on three hook and eye sets and you now have a Skulligan!

Here is the Skulligan hanging up. It looks wonky because I used a cotton (nonstretch edging) on a cotton stretch tee. Need to fix this so it lays better.

Here is the skulligan on me. It looks pretty good I think. It's nice and warm and really fits me well.

15  Into the mouth of a monster goes my yummy MP3player in Crochet: Completed Projects by Lydia the Strange on: July 25, 2007 08:57:05 PM
Here is my latest crochet project. A cute little monster IPOD cozy, where the mouth is the opening.


This next picture is of the IPOD out of the cozy.


I am trying to use up my current stash of yarn, so I can feel better about buying more handspun stuff from Etsy.

20  Cold Feet and however long it takes ya! Tutorial added! in Crochet: Completed Projects by Lydia the Strange on: October 16, 2006 09:11:16 AM
The weather has gotten much colder at nights, so last night while I was watching "Jaws", I made myself a pair of Maryjane slippers to keep my feet warm. 20 minutes....that's all it took.

L hook
worsted weight yarn ( 2 strand held together)

ch 2. 6 hdc in first ch. join

ch 2. 2 hdc in each stitch around. join.

ch 2. 1 hdc in next st. 2 hdc in next st. repeat around. join.

ch 2. 1 hdc in each st around. Join. Do this till toe area is the length you want.

ch 2. hdc in next 14 sts. turn and continue this till foot area is length you want. You want the slipper to fit snug, so when you get to the heel, put right sides together and slip stitch shut.

Do a row of sc across the top of the slipper to finish the edge. You can add a strap by starting on one side and making it 2 sc wide  then slip stitching it to the opposite side.

Ta Da! fast and easy maryjanes in 20 minutes.
