after studying a purse at target..trying to figure out the handles/shape of it...i got out some newspaper and sketched up a pattern...
nevermind the ugly floor!..i was going to take a picture of it on my bed...but my room is as dark as a cave!...hehe Tongue

i might add a some ribbon to it or something...it looks kind of plain..what do you think?
heres a close up of the material.

24  Re: Need ideas for redoing this retro shirt in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by xveganettex on: March 30, 2006 12:21:09 PM
you could make a skirt out of it...just cut off the top part where the sleeves are straightacross and add some elastic...  Smiley ..if its too small you could add material to the sides you could also add a waist band to it

25  Re: My chucks are better than yours (CAMWHORE) in Shoes: Completed Projects by xveganettex on: March 21, 2006 07:26:57 PM
those are awesome, i'm a color whore.

annnnnnd i'm not trying to be preachy or condescending, but i noticed on a similar discussion on another messageboard that a lot of people were unaware that Nike now owns converse.  they bought out converse in 2003.  so converse=sweatshops.  which also explains the price bump.

for a sweatshop free alternative, try

right now, No Sweat has some of their mock chucks on sale.  i picked up a pink pair for like $23.

ooooooh i know! it sucks soooo bad..i love my converse...theyre like 3-4 years old i think lol

your converse are pretty!

29  i need hugs! pillow in Stenciling: Completed Projects by xveganettex on: January 03, 2006 11:44:42 AM
my pillow was looking real boring ...so i found this cute stencil here :
and decided to make my pillow  not so boring...its not the best stenciling, i had to cut it out with scissors and it took forever  and  i had to trace it off the computer onto some decal printing paper because i dont have any ink in the printer Tongue  but it works pretty well considering one side is sticky so the edges stick down pretty well.

i used acrylic and textile medium  and glitter  Grin

(the dots are glitter)
