1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / just another T-Shirt Recon on: March 20, 2010 01:32:04 PM
Hubby gave me a comfy well worn in Tshirt that he is now too fat for. So.. I looked around, saw nothing I wanted, and came up with something on my own. All materials used came from the T-shirt except for the string I sewed it together with.. my machine is still packed up, so I hand-sewed this baby.

2  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Advice for newbie on: September 22, 2008 07:38:31 PM
I'm planning on making a sunbonnet sue quilt for my daughter for christmas, and wanted some advice since it will be my first quilt.

She's just graduated up to a toddler bed so I was thinking of making it toddler sized, but at the same time I'd like it to last a long time, so do you think I should just make it twin sized and it'll just be big for a while?

I'm planning on using the patterns from "Sunbonnet Sue all through the year" by Sue Linker. The blocks are 12" finished, and are appliqued.

I'm torn about using the patterns from this book though. While I think doing the different backgrounds, etc would be a lot of fun- and work- to do, I also really like the traditonal Sunbonnet Sue that I fell in love with as a child, and am unsure of which I want to use more. Any opinions from those of you who also grew up loving her?

What kind of fabric should I use for the back? I'm hoping to hand-piece and quilt this... I'll be picking up books from the library this week, but any advice is welcome.
3  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Discussion and Questions / stenciling words and phrases on: May 05, 2008 06:41:53 PM
So this may sound retarted... and I did look everywhere.... but is there any advice for stenciling words/phrases onto t-shirts? I already have my fonts picked out... and my phrases... and I have freezer paper, bushes, acrylic paint and textile medium, but I don't want to wreck my shirts with doing the wrong thing if you know what I mean... Maternity tshirts are NOT cheap to buy. lol.
4  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Recycled bookshelves on: January 23, 2008 09:27:39 PM
I'm a poor college student who just moved into a one bedroom.. room with my inlaws, my hubby, and my toddler. I also happen to have.. six boxes of medium sized books and no money for bookshelves lol. So what could I do?? Well this is what I came up with....

CARDBOARD BOX Shelves!! Not great, but it'll do until I can buy real bookshelves... My books are sad. They deserve better.

Don't mind the books all over the floor... Little miss was reading again.
5  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / felt name book *image heavy* on: October 23, 2007 07:23:35 PM
Hey everyone. Wayyyy back in the beginning of the year I worked on making this felt book for my daughter's first birthday. It was finished on time, and then my computer crashed. So, here it finally is. It was inspired by this post: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=71926.0.

Without further ado, here it is... sorry about all of the imgs

This is the cover, it says Victoria.

V is for Vampire

I is for Ice Cream, for some reason this picture came out very washed out, it is actually very different looking and along the sides it says the flavors- mint, chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

C is for Catepillar.

T is for Turtle

O is for Octopus

R is for Robot. His little tummy says "Hi!"

I is for Island

A is for Angel.

The back cover, it says "Mommy 'n' Daddy <3 Victoria more than the  sun, 'n' the moon, 'n' the stars in the sky.

It was all hand stitched... this project went EVERYWHERE with me for a long time. Tongue
6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Habitat for humanity tshirts on: March 15, 2007 11:04:38 AM
When we moved into our new place, we found.... like 50 L Habitat for Humanity Tshirts.. Some are long sleeved, some are short sleeved. The only things I can think of using them for are rag quilts and cloth diapers. They're not attractive lol... So, any ideas?
7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Baby Showers And Gifts For New Babies / resizing baby clothes on: December 11, 2006 11:03:33 AM
Anyone have any advice about this? My baby girl was given all kinds of cute 6/9 mo xmas things at my baby shower, but she's still wearing only a 0/3 mo clothes size. I'd hate to not get to use the beautiful clothes we got for her.

And now, my feeding mounds lol don't fit into this shirt anymore. which sux because it's a really cute shirt. any ideas on how to fix it.. so it'll fit again?

10  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recon: Pants to Messanger bag of sorts IMG heavy on: August 17, 2006 11:08:30 PM
So my husband had these KIK wear pants that he *adored* from when he was younger, but they were all beat to heck, torn, grease stains, the whole works. Well, since he wanted me to make him a bag for him to put his PS2 in  Roll Eyes I turned those pants, a pair of his boxers, and one of his shirts into this.

The front

The back

Inside back

Logo piece on the connecting deal.

An "I am loved/Soy amada/Ich bien something" pin on the strap where it connects- this is a loop because he's got keys and tons and tons of wires he can hook on here.

An inside pocket that was a mini pocket in his pants

A belt loop + logo for keys and crap

Inside the front flap and front inside- it's made of two big side pockets.

My husband ohh soo handsomely modeling it.

I hand stitched the whole thing while I was pregnant... It took me months because I'd forget what I had been doing and stitch it together backwards or sew together wrong parts  Roll Eyes I did it this way because he wanted it to look "punk" and the pants were "punk" according to him. *shrugs* It's supposed to look DIY
