91  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: ugly brown cardigan into cute bolero! on: December 21, 2005 11:02:00 AM
Great job! I've got a few old sweaters I was thinking of doing the same with. One cool thing is to take a wool sweater that's too big for you, wash it in hot water to "felt" it, and then you can cut it without having to worry about it unraveling. Make sense? Then you don't have to bind the edges if you don't want to.

that's a really good idea! i've been told that felting was easy, but i've never gotten around to trying it! maybe i will now!! because binding the edges is pretty much a pain in the butt! thanks guys for the positive feedback!

i've had this oversized ugly long-sleeve brown cardigan since i was in 10th grade, and i'm currently a sophmore in college. and i think that i've worn it once. soooooo i was inspired by all of the revamped boleros posted and decided to make one myself! the only thing i don't like about it, and i was stupid for not thinking about this first, is that i used black thread. i think the final product would be a lot better if i had used white. oh well. i made it for my mom, and i'm sure she'll love it. criticism and comments welcome!

thanks for checking it out!

i've wanted to give this bag a go for a while now, but wanted to wait until christmas. i decided to make a bag for my 16 year old sister. it took be about 3.5 hours. i'm happy with the way it came out, but would do a few things differently. i was a little bit confused about the zipper. like many others who tried the bag, it was my first time with zippers on bags. it was also my first time pleating. i really think that my sister will like it! plus all of the materials didn't cost me anything! i took the zipper from an old dress, and i had the material lying around. well, thanks for looking! feedback welcome! and thanks tinafish for the tutorial!

my kitty really liked the bag through out the whole process.

whoops! forgot to sew up the hole inside! guess i'll do that later!

thanks for looking!

so this christmas i decided to make everyone's presents for under $10. my aunt just redecorated her livingroom, so i made her these etched glass vases. i got the vases from michael's for $3. great deal. i think that they came out good!

Thanks for looking!
