12  two of my dad's old shirts = one really cool shirt :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by laura1121 on: December 29, 2005 11:15:00 PM
ok so while i was away at school my dad cleaned out his closet.  i came home to a ton of old, huge dad clothes under my bed.  he told me "i wasnt sure if you'd want to make something from any of my stuff so i left it there for you"

mmhhhhm of course i wanted to make something Smiley

this is out of two different shirts, a huge short sleeved golf shirt and a huge long sleeved golf shirt

sorry for the lame phone shot, i was anxious to take pictures right away and was already on the phone Sad

"i have to put the phone down for a min, hold on"

close up

the stitching is really wonky in some places, and i originally wanted to put sleeves on it, but couldnt figure out how...oh well, i havent made anything in months (being at college in a tiny dorm isn't very welcoming to craftiness) so i'm happy with this Smiley

hope you like it!!! and thanks for looking!

p.s. excuse the messy room -- my mom took up all my closet space and i came home to a room with nowhere to put anything ! haha

13  purses, bags, and more purses and bags! (lots of imgs) in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by laura1121 on: December 04, 2005 01:06:45 PM
well purses and bags are what i do when i want to sew but am feeling lazy, so i have tons.  i barely use any of them (i'm more of a shove everything in the pockets kind of person).  i want to sell some but of course i get attached to everything i make haha!

this one is one of my favorites, i used to use it lots but now that i'm at college i don't carry bags AT ALL.  it has pleats but you can't see them Sad

close up of pattern

this was my beach bag and school bag for the beginning of the year but then the knot at the top got really uncomfortable when carrying heavy stuff haha

picture with the lining

gah i love this clutch but i messed it up a million times before it turned out okay

favorite part = the lining!


closeup of AWESOME FABRIC haha (oh yeah, see that crossword puzzle?  turns out my name is in there, which i didnt realize til after i made the bag!)
i also made boxers out of this fabric, too.  i couldnt get enough!

first thing i ever sewed...it's all handsewed and made from an old towel, with a zipper at the top, pocket inside, and cardboard in the bottom to keep it from drooping

then i went on a "clutch kick"

old bedsheet

prom bag to match my dress (which i posted in the promalong thread) Smiley

this is my favorite ever, i gave it away and the girl i gave it to promised to make me something kickass in return -- 6 months later and she still hasnt Sad  sighhh i miss this beauty Sad


SO MANY AHH!  thanks for looking Smiley

ORenIshii, i remembered yours in particular...LOVE IT SO MUCH.

i made this Feb-March 05 for my senior prom.  i really wish i could go back and do some things differently but sadly i have no proms left Sad  i wanted to make a dress for my boyfriend's prom, too, but by the time i decided to do that it was 2 weeks before and i had no time at all!

so here it is!

as soon as i hemmed it i HAD to get my mom to take a picture of course! hah

the colors and fabric look so ugly here Sad
purse i made to match it...this is what the top half of the dress looked like

day of the prom Smiley
hah i look miserable here, i hate boring posed pictures

me and my boy

this is all of us, i guess i'm just including this for fun since you can't even raelly see the dress  Cheesy

thank you for looking!!!  great job with everyone's dresses, they all look amazing!

15  redone tshirts & bedsheet shirt ADDED THE TUTORIAL! :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by laura1121 on: November 16, 2005 01:07:47 PM
i've decided to finally start posting in here even though i read it alllllll the time!  so here are just a few things i've done recently Smiley

huuuuuge plain tshirt from ac moore into this!  when i took the pictures it was just pinned shut but i've since added a really cute white button that's in the shape of a star Smiley

another huge tshirt from ac moore...my first attempt at stenciling and puffed sleeves, neither of which went very well...i definitely want to try the sleeves again though, i've become better at stenciling since then

^ closeup of pocket and "puffed sleeves" haha

^ i look so awkward !!!

old bedsheet and some lace i had lying around

^closeup of sleeve and design

^ worst picture ever but you get the idea Smiley

two extra large tshirts into a simple tote baggg

these are just reconstructions i've done, i usually do a lot from scratch...i made my prom dress and i have more purses than i know what to do with!!!

thank you for lookinG!!!  Smiley

well here's the tutorial, it's the first one i ever did so go easy on me if it's unclear! haha any questions just ask Smiley

i'm never sure if photobucket is going to resize something, so if it does here is the link!

once again thanks for all the nice words, this was a great way for me to start my craftster posting-ness!!
