72  Western Style Corporate Shirt with Tattoo Embroidery in Needlework: Completed Projects by modpodge on: August 13, 2005 02:38:48 PM
Sooo...being in an absolutely LOVELY corporate job, I am forced to wear ugly and boring dress shirts every day. I spiffed this one up a little with some embroidery.  Let me know what you think, or just commiserate with me about your corporate job!

73  Fabric Markers & a Vintage Pillowcase in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by modpodge on: August 13, 2005 02:34:58 PM
I made this skirt from a vintage pillowcase from the thrift store. I just ripped open the seam on the closed end, sewed some elastic to the top, and made a slit in the back (it was fitting too snugly around the bottom). And to add a little extra to the pattern, which is pretty but pale, i used a fabric marker- has anyone else used these? they are THE BEST!! i was going to embroider around some of the flowers, which would have taken days, even months, but instead i took out my lovely fabric pen, and it was done within the hour!

74  Fabric Flowers from Vintage Fabric in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: July 23, 2005 05:20:43 PM
Yeah, i know, more of these flower pins!!! I used a plastic skull charm for the first flower and an old button for the second... I found some of the tutorials on the board a little too origami-like (read:HARD!) so these are literally rolled up pieces of fabric strung together.

75  Thrift Store Dress to Skirt- Easy Peasy Recon *Now With Matching Skull Pin!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by modpodge on: July 23, 2005 09:22:12 AM
I picked up this dress for $0.90 at the thrift store. Looks great on the hanger, but when you wear this type of dress you have to weigh about 90 pounds and have no breasts to speak of! I just used a seam ripper to take off the top part, and that elastic band served as a waist- no sewing at all!

77  Tarot Card Table in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: July 19, 2005 03:54:53 PM
I found this table in the alley (I find a surprising amount of things there...), lugged it back to my apartment, and covered it in acrylics and tarot cards. It has achieved that "aged" look after years of use and misuse, but i like how it looks like I did it on purpose!

78  Stenciled Bird Dresser in Stenciling: Completed Projects by modpodge on: July 19, 2005 03:45:25 PM
I posted this in housewares as well, but I stencilled it, so I figured it belonged here too! I repainted this entire dresser and used a file folder stencil and silverpaint pen to draw on the birds. Don't mind the scratch, this is over a year old and gets a LOT of use!

79  Revamped Stenciled Bird Dresser in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: July 19, 2005 03:39:00 PM
I found this dresser unused and unwanted in our apartment building's storage. It was a boring wood dresser- I painted it and used a stencil (cut out of a file folder, nothing fancy) for the birds. It got a little scratched on the top (its over a year old) so I'm thinking of doing another coat of paint. All in all, it didn't take me too long and it looks MUCH better than before!

80  BIG Nautical Star Mirror in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by modpodge on: July 19, 2005 03:33:55 PM
I picked up this mirror in the alley a while ago- it is decoupaged with pages from an old "how-to" tarot card book- I used ModPodge, of course. The stars were done with paint pens and the border was painted with acrylics. There are also some micah (sp?) flakes bordering the top and inside of the mirror. Unfortunately, the mirror weighs in at around 25 pounds, so I am having a hell of time figuring out how and where to hang it!
