1  pinstripes & heart: what's not to love? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pnk_elefant on: August 28, 2006 10:07:49 PM
So I've been wanting a shirt to wear with this black tie w/ white pinstripes that I have (used to be my mum's) but I didn't have any that were cool enough to match it.  I was digging through my brothers' old clothes, once again, and found this white pinstripe shirt that had a weird fit to it.  It's been sitting in my room, waiting to be fixed but I didn't have a sewing machine until about 3 days ago!

so, I added a bit of shaping and made the fit better, shortened the sleeves, and now it is wearable.

shaping (please tell me that that is in fact, what it is called.):

without the tie:

Oh, and I added a felt heart on the pocket.  (btw, the pocket is on my left boob.)

this was my first ever sewing-machine project (minus the apron i made back in grade 8 in home ec.)

thanks for looking!

2  brownie dress turned awesome jacket/shirt thing in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pnk_elefant on: July 05, 2006 01:07:47 PM
one day, a few months ago, a girl who isn't in brownies anymore was looking through her closet.
look what she found! (eww. there're glue stains at the bottom)

suddenly, she had an idea, and a pair of scissors, needles, thread, and some felt and badges later, this is what she came up with:

(note the pink elephant in the left-hand corner  Smiley)

thanks for looking!

woohoo i finished mine last night.
(that's supposed to be a hot pink color, don't know why it turned out red-orange like)

BUT i need to do a lining.  my gauge was way off so i just worked two rows of the intarsia instead of three, and did three repeats instead of four.

and for a personal touch, i replaced one of the skulls w/ a heart

unfortunately though i made it with some crappy acrylic yarn i had, so it won't shrink (or will it?)
right now it's pretty damn big.

4  Hello Kitty watch-bracelet in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by pnk_elefant on: October 23, 2005 06:12:08 PM
Old watch from when I was a kid.  I took out the clock part.


The inside is filled with a (tiny) hello kitty eraser and a million seed beads

Thanks for looking =)

(PS: sorry for the horrible pictures, I don't have a digital camera so I used my scanner hahahaha.)
