okay so ive been a sewing machine recently and i recently popped this out...  I orginally baught this shirt for my boyfriend as an x-mas present but they sent a medium instead of a small, and his skinny body was drowning in it, so i thought of returning it but i liked it so i kept it for myself and bought him another one, any way i was just going to take it in.. but once i started i couldnt stop.

6  3 dead fish in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by minniemeggie on: July 19, 2006 09:23:49 AM
in this picture the collar just needs to be ironed down, its not funny looking i promise!

close up of the yoke:

you cant really tell in this picture but the fish are upside down creating me "dead fish"

annnd the ADORABLE fabric i used:

i would have modeled it but my boobs are too big and the yoke smooshes them and it looks awful as soon as i get my friend danielle (or skinny if you will) over i will get her to model it

anyway just a question if you saw this in a store, would you buy it??? and if so how much would you be willing to pay

7  i had two... so i changed one... now with a tutorial in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by minniemeggie on: June 30, 2006 03:08:08 PM
my boyfriend gave me his pinback shirt sense it was too small for him, he knew i had the same one but he said "i know you can find some us for it"  and i did!

its not my greatest creation, but it was fun to make and its good for the unbelievably hot weather we have been having (i live in san antonio tx, getting closer to 100 everyday...)

8  old shoes turned new and a wide and short thrifted shirt gets summer ready! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by minniemeggie on: June 28, 2006 09:36:32 PM
i had these shoes:

...but i had them for a year, and i basically wore them everyday they obtained the name "all terrian mary janes" by my friends as joke sense everytime we would go out, whether it was a walk in the park or a climb up a rocky hill i had those babies parked on my feet....   so, naturally they had faded to an ugly dirty grey color and the white piping turned brown.  no matter how much they were washed they were pretty pathetic.  so after sitting in my scrap box forever (i couldnt bare to part yet i had no clue how to fix them) i finally got off my butt and decieded to work on them...

 i really like the outcome. (i didnt have black piping so i used some lace i had):

and i found this really wierd shaped shirt at the thrift store but i loved the stripes so i made this:

hope you enjoy!

I want to create this:
