3  Funky Tote from vintage fabric + Screen print!! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by ArmyOfMe on: September 16, 2007 05:02:21 PM
Phew, so much work has gone into this one! My first screen printed tote. I drew up the girl and leaf myself, tried to make it work with the funky vintage fabric as much as possible. I think it worked out pretty well Smiley Its lined with a pocket inside and has a vintage button w/ loop closure at the top!

Thanks for lookin! Wink

4  Dreaming of a Purple ZEBRA (a desk) bunch-o-pics in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by ArmyOfMe on: June 29, 2007 09:08:26 AM
Our (my boyfriend Miguel and I) adventure started at a flea market where we found this sturdy wood desk for $40. Looking back, it didnt look all that bad, but we had something else in mind for it.

We didnt know what we were getting ourselves into. Our power sanding thingy kept dying so we ended up sanding most of it down by hand. (my little sis in the pic)

We primered and added layer after layer of purple!! Then comes Miguel's drawing skills. He drew out the stripes on either side with marker and we got to painting the stripes in! [tilt head sideways hehe]

At this point, we took it home (we were working at my step dad's house) and my friend Curly came over to help with the border and stripes on the drawers.

Tito guarded the desk from intruders!!

And finally we started screwing in the lovely handles!

And tada! My new sewing desk!

All thats left to do it put a new lock on the bottom drawer where that hole is Smiley

We worked on this on and off for several months and I'm just so happy and proud of how it come out!! We're a good team Grin I hope you all like it too, and ofcourse comments and criticism are welcome with open arms! Wink

P.S. sorry so many pictures Undecided

5  Urban Outfitters Housedress? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by ArmyOfMe on: June 10, 2007 04:59:59 PM
I've been eyeing this dress for a while. I decided I wanted to make something similar for myself and bought some fabric, but I really have no idea how to go about making it. Does anyone know of a pattern that is similar? No collar, button down front dress.

And if you know how they did the buttons with the little loops, that would be helpful too (though I know I dont have to do it that way). Do they sell trim thats already like that?

Thanks in advance! Smiley

7  Cherries! Tank top with rouched bust in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by ArmyOfMe on: February 25, 2007 12:30:40 PM
Hiya! I have tons of fabric that I need to start putting to good use. And since it is starting to get warmer down here in texas, I decided to make a tank top!

Its longer than it looks in the pics, I should have straightened it out a bit

Close up of the rouched (sp?) part. I used elastic.

And a close up of the fabric/trim

Its a little sheer so I have to wear another black tank underneath it but I still love it! And it would be cute to wear over a swim suit at the beach Smiley Sorry the pics are a little orange, I took em in the bathroom :/ I hope you like it!

I used vintage fabrics for the owls and bow thingy. Beads include glass, vintage, swarovski crystals, gemstone, plastic and sterling sliver. Thanks for looking!
