31  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Stripped Vest (sort of from pattern) on: February 24, 2008 11:16:22 AM
This was my first attempt at making something from a pattern.  Usually I post in the reconstructed section.  I made this vest using the Simplicity 4079 pattern.  Well I started out making it from that pattern but towards the end I kind of veered off and did my own thing. 

I am happy with how it turned out.

The back was supposed to have a buckle but I opted to be a cheapo and just tie it.  Plus the pattern was still a smidge big for me even after I cut it down a little so it is kind of ruffled in the back.

I also used snaps instead of buttons

except I did use these fantastic giant buttons on the shoulders.

32  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Result of a draw along on: November 12, 2007 09:35:16 AM
A couple of friends and I did a draw along one night while we were playing a game.  For those of you who are wondering "what the heck is a draw along?", a draw along is where you keep passing the paper around and each person adds something until you all decide it is done.

We drew it all on paper and then I took it into illustrator to trace and color it. I think it turned out pretty cool.

the lines are a little jaggedy because it is automatically sized down.  To see it full size, right click and select 'view image'
33  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ruffled Tank Top on: July 06, 2007 07:53:57 PM
I got the yellow tank top from my mom and it exposed a bit too much midriff for my comfort but I loved the cuts of the collar so I decided to put the cute little ruffle around the bottom to make it just a little longer.

34  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Beer Boy to the rescue! on: May 23, 2007 07:03:24 AM
What would you do if you found an unopened can of beer in your mailbox? 

I found a unopened can of beer in my mailbox and I decided to make a superhero costume for it.  It used to be just an ordinary can of Natural Light but now it is BEER BOY!

He has a floppy hat, a button down shirt and...

 A cape, of course

This is him saving a poor kitty cat

35  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / super sailor shirt on: January 02, 2006 06:22:47 AM
I call this shirt my "sailor shirt".  It kind of reminds me of the shirt kirk douglas is wearing in 20,000 leagues under the sea. 

It is made from two separate shirts.  The top striped shirt was too small but too cute to pass up and the material on the bottom is just from an old cotton t-shirt.  Since the top shirt was a bit snug on me I put a stripe of the blue from the bottom up the sides.

The pictures are kind of dark, but the shirt on the bottom is a navy blue color. I guess I should have waited to take to pictures during the day.

this is the stripe down the side of the shirt
36  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / NKOTB purse on: December 29, 2005 05:14:26 AM
I found one of my sister's old New Kid on the Block washcloths, so naturally I used it to make a purse. 

It was constructed with the random fabric that I already had, so the inside lining is brown and the back has fuzzy orange.  I used a piece of tow strap for the handle.
