1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / frilly frock... cuz grandma's are so hot right now! on: January 24, 2006 10:49:33 PM
this used to be an ugkly green sweatshirt from thriftown...

NOW, it's an ugkly green sweatshirt from thriftown with style...

try not to get distracted by my killer good looks.

if you wanna make out with me now i totally understand...

but if you wanna make a granny sweater all your own, this is what you do...
-cut a scoop in the front of sweatshirt or sweater, however low you wanna go
-sew on lace around the neck... which is the hardest damned thing ever if your trying to use a new serger for the first time. i kept mucking it up. blasted machine....
-if the shirts too baggy for your likey like mine was you can do what i did and lace some um lace in a corset style up the back.

2  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / because i'm sassy like that...(pegasus polo) on: November 17, 2005 12:00:09 AM

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / some sweet armwarmers, and a coupla scarves... on: November 08, 2004 10:09:59 AM
i went crazy taking pictures this morning, and decided to share these projects with everyone.

these armwarmers i didn't use a pattern for, i kind just made it up as i went along, i could maybe attempt writing one out if anyone really wants it.

other than that here they are...

weee! knitting is sexy Kiss

a close-up:

there's about an inch of ribbing (knit 2, purl 2) around the top and bottom, it blends into the cable kinda, wierdly, but yah... i think they turned out pretty sweet Grin

okay and for some scarves i made recently...

the one that looks like my neck's throwing up cotton candy, i knit with chunky snowflake yarn, using some fat needles, size 16 or 17, and love it... it's so soft and fluffy and weighs next to nothing.

the other scarf i knit with a multi-colered wool blend in a double sided stockinette stitch using the same fat needles. it's super warm and cozy, and i love it as well.

that is all.

thanks for looking Wink
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / *Boogie Dancing* hot recon dress (now with directions) on: November 05, 2004 06:41:37 AM
i died off this website for a while but i'm back... with this dress i made out of a big huge t-shirt from the salvation army. it was too awesome not to do something with...

if i were to make this dress over, undoubtedly i would make it LONGER... for i look pretty freaking naked in this picture. now i know what that look from my mom was for when i said "MOM, look what i made!"

but i wore this dress dancing and felt like a fashion genius when random girls where all about it... "like oh my god! where did you get your dress?" and and old boyfriend of mine was there... and yah, i don't know where i'm going with this, so i'll just stop.

anyway, i wish there was a pattern to share, but i pretty much just started cutting and sewing... the froof around the bottom is just scraps from the yellow shirt i stiched on with a zigzag stitch and red thread. the red waistband is from a different shirt i cut up... i could try to explain how to make it of anyone asks.
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap on: November 05, 2004 06:12:00 AM
i'm back to this website after a long time of absence. truth is i've been really uber depressed and havn't wanted to do anything at all, even be crafty. truly, i was lost. until recently i just decided to pick up those trusty knitting needles and knit my busted lil heart out... yah ANWAY... i knit a couple scarfs and some other things, but i'll post them later.. cuz this puppy, i'm really proud of...

here's the picture from the pattern...

i got the pattern off this website http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/patterns.htm it has a bunch of lovely little hat patterns, it is just a lovely page of loveliness actually.

they call it the Amelia Earhart Aviator Cap, the pattern is lengthy but i managed to tackle it only ripping it out three times! yah... but it was for my halloween costume so i was determined to finish it. and i did.

it's knit mostly in the knit/purl fashion with some increasing/decreasing and some wrapping/turning(this is what i found tricky at first but i got it pretty well figuired by my third attempt)an ambitious beginer or intermediate knitter should be able to handle this pattern pretty easily once you get going. i'll be glad to help anyone that wants to make this hat and has questions... http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/kpatt07.htm

it took two skeins of yarn, i chose a soft wooly chocolate brown... i'm in love with it, i have to figuire out what else to wear it with beside my halloween costume. i also want to knit another one in some different color... green maybe.

anyway... here's a picture of me from halloween in my hat. i was a gun moll.

*bang bang*
6  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / kitty hat on: March 02, 2004 08:22:05 PM
kitty hat. it was my first non-scarf knitting project, i'm a pretty new knitter and i was so excited that it came out looking like the picture. i thought it turned out cute so i made my little sister model it.. here it is. the patterns kinda big i think, or maybe my yarn was just fat.. i used that super soft jiffy, mohair type yarn... i love it, but yah.. i'm so attached to it, i wore it to the dmv when i went to renew my liscence but they made me take it off for my picture *poo* oh well
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / How to make a pleated skirt: 1 spiderman pillowcase = 1 hot little skirt on: March 02, 2004 02:42:09 PM
hey oh... check out what i did with an awesome 69 cent spiderman pillowcase i found at thrift town.. it took me about an hour to make.

i just cut 2 ten inch tall sections of the pillowcase sewed them together and pleated them and sewed them to a bottom of an old black t-shirt i folded over to make a waistband out of...
and voila, time to rock and roll...
8  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / boy beanie on: March 02, 2004 01:44:52 PM
Allo crafty bunch... yah, i've been addicted to this site for some time, so i decided it's about time i posted something, woot woot! i'm just a litlle excited about this if you can't tell... anyway i knitted this beanie for a *boy* but i'm modeling it because i havn't given it to him yet...
sorry, the pictures a little well, off centered, but you get the idea...I kinda used the pattern for the kitty hat from stitch and bitch, but left off the earflaps and did the whole thing in seed stitch so it kinda took forever, but i like how it turned out so yah, he just better apreciate my mad knitting skills or else i'll be stealing it back, AAaaarrgghh!
