1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Thrifted dress recon on: March 01, 2009 07:54:46 AM


I turned it into a bubble dress, cinched the waist and added a band of ribbon stuff that was also at the thrift.
Really simple, but I'm pleased.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Recon tee dress [pics] on: March 22, 2008 08:40:41 AM
Needless to say, it was a first, all the seams are slightly wonky, my gathering sucks, but I learned from it. Made from two tees that my friend was going to give to the goodwill. It's really comfy to wear with tights and a tee along with my recon legwarmers. The red fabric is 100% organic hemp & chocolate Grin.
If anybody has advice on sewing jersey fabric, gathering, or general whatnot that would help me in the future, please share! I'd love to hear it.
Thanks for looking.




Sorry about my messy teenage room.

Just a couple I made a little bit ago with my friend during class Wink
She was the one who figured out to make them a complete circuit.
Sorry they're a little worn and fuzzy.

6  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Lemon juice bottle on: April 28, 2007 01:53:30 PM
Its one of those bottles that's shaped like a lemon like this http://www.mybrandsinc.com/ShopOnline/Images/WB/131_1053300999.JPG

I thought about cutting it open and making a plant pot, and I might do that, but I wanted to know if you guys had any other ideas first, before I decapitate it.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re-furbished MONSTER Chair! on: October 07, 2006 11:28:17 AM
One day, while browsing the vast and bleak aisles of Wal-Mart (Mall-Wart) I came upon some monster fabric. I bought it, and hours later, finished the chair of my dreams! from ugly purple to fabulous fur!

close up of fur

 Edit: to tack on the fabric, I had to first take the back and the seat off. Then, I used a staple hammer (you could use a staple gun too) to staple the fabric over the old.
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Ribbon Pillow Tutorial! on: July 29, 2006 09:35:37 AM
okay since so many poeple asked how for one, here it is!
you need:
 fusible interfacing
blank pillow
fabric of your choice

So, After you pick out your color of ribbons, how much you need depends on how many colors you have. cut the ribbons into strips as long as your pillow (16 inch pillow, 16 inch ribbons)
arrange them in a pattern and pin them to fusible interfacing

Then, repeat the pattern while your weave it in, pinning the ends as you go.

When you are finished weaving, lightly iron on over the ribbon, then iron the back to seal the deal.

Then, you have the front of your pillow, jutst sew it up however you like, and put the pillow in. voila! Pillow!

I hope this is cler enough, just post your questions if you have any.

 I saw this on a website on shrinky dink pins, and they were displayed in a pincushon. It looked fairly easy to make, just two squares sewn together and stuffed. I put a magnet on the bottom inside to pick up pins...
