1  UNITED STATES / California / San Francisco area cheap recycled craft store on: August 12, 2005 10:28:42 AM
For everyone in the bay area, this is the crafter's hidden gem. It's called SCRAP, and they sell EVERYTHING for super super super cheap. you fill up a paper shopping bag with whatever you want, they look through it and give you a price (almost always under $10) They have fabric, yarn, buttons, paper, frames, wood, glass, metal... it's amazing. here's their website with directions (in the Potrero Hill area) GO THERE!!!!!!!!!!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / bag from an old T-shirt on: August 07, 2005 12:46:05 PM
I made this bag from an old T-shirt I had that had gotten too thin to wear. I love it too much to get rid of it, so I turned it into a bag. It has a lining from pink T-shirt fabric, and between the shirt and the lining is an old thin quilt that I used to make it stiffer and thicker. The way I sewed it is basically the way you sew a little coin purse with lining and a zipper, with a few modifications of my own. There's an inset pocket in the lining with a zipper. That was the hardest part. The strap was sewn on after.


3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / hot pink shirt on: August 07, 2005 12:40:53 PM
I made this shirt from some T-shirt fabric I got at a thrift store. I cut it up and pieced it together on my dress form. The pieces are basically just sewn overlapping with zigzag machine stitch. I sewed the patches on after.

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / shirt from too-small shirt and fabric on: August 07, 2005 12:36:26 PM
The striped parts were a shirt I got that I never wore cause it was too small. I got some purple T-shirt fabric, and pieced it all together after I cut up the striped one. I left the neck the way it was to make it easier.


5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / small red bag on: August 05, 2005 03:33:31 PM
Here's a small purse I finished (though it still needs a lining). It's knit in popcorn or seed stitch, with a stripe and edging of funky pink yarn. I knit it in a long rectangle, then decreased into a triangle at the top, and sewed the sides together. The strap is crocheted in two rows of slip stitch. Hope you enjoy...


6  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / 2 cloche hats with flowers on: August 04, 2005 09:58:56 AM
Here's my first finished crochet hat. I worked it in single crochet in the round with simple increases every other row, about every other stitch, then just straight single crochet for the main tube part. to get the curl at the bottom I just did two single crochet stitches in every stitch, and then the last row I decreased every other stitch. The flower is a combo of single, half double, and double stitches in "waves." Thanks for checking it out!    



Here's another hat I just finished, it's basically the same pattern in pink
