1  Re: Reconstructed band t-shirt into halter top! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by gorillagirl on: October 03, 2006 09:55:33 PM
Thanks so so much for this!  I have a t-shirt that I loved, except it had frilly sleeves.  I'm part of the 99% of the population that just can't do frills on a sleeve, but was at a loss of what to do...
End result

Thanks again for the idea!

2  Pesky seed beads? A solution... in Beads: Completed Projects by gorillagirl on: August 20, 2006 10:44:57 PM
I have a plethora of seed beads, and have finally graduated past just stringing them with a central large bead.  Well, technically, there's still a bunch of seed beads, with a larger one as the focus  Undecided

This weekend, I made these two necklaces, I'd say each took about 1 1/2 hours (probably less if there wasn't such good tv on  Cheesy)

Close up...

The original pattern came from http://www.geocities.com/Yosemite/Rapids/2216/proj1net.html
Unfortunately, although the tute is still up, no other identifying info is available, so I can't give true credit.  I apologize.  The only thing I changed was to add about 4 1/2 to 5" of plainly stringed beads, and wire wrapped the larger add on beads.

Well, I actually finished cleaning mine the night that I posted the unbelievable mess.  But I wanted to wait and see if it could stay organized.  Well, it's been almost a week, and it stayed clean - AMAZING!!  Grin  I lost floor space, but as a "dropper", I can drop stuff in drawers, and nobody ever knows.  And a note for the other droppers out there, record bowls are great to drop stuff in, and it will still look clean.

And look, I've still got space to store school stuff, and the most comfy chair of ever to study in...

Eventually, those cd's will make their way into storage.  Ultimately, I'd like to take all of my cd sleeves and make some sort of collage.  It would cut down on space, and make cool wall art.  Has anyone done anything like that?  Any suggestions?

After previewing it, I realized the pics are a little blurry - Sry  Sad

I had the BEST intentions tonight.

I started out with a fairly organized, altough extremely cluttered craft room (I was so gung ho about organizing, I didn't even think about taking "before" pics.

So I am going back to school in the fall, and I realized today that my craft/work room is totally out of control, and it will soon be cluttered up with school crap.  So I thought I'd haul a dresser up from the basement (no easy task, mind you), and then I could have added surface space, plus a way to organize and store my crafts.

Long story short, somehow I ended up with LESS room than I had before.  I realized the room would become more cozy, but now, I can't find a way to put all my crafts away.

HELP!!!!!  Angry

So, I tried it out and realized after I made one (the black n white one at the bottom), that I liked the lining better than the outside.

Hmmmmmm - I tried to figure out a way to make that work and this seems to work ok.  I cut the lining about 1/3 longer than the outer piece, then followed sweetpea74's original instructions.  After pulling through the top seam, I just folded the "extra" lining back and sewed it to the outer piece.

A view of the back after sewing

Oh wait!!!! I was so gung ho about the lining, I completely forgot to add the elastic  Sad I think I'll just end up adding a snap.

And the finished products - the lining that you see on the flap was used for both purses.

Thanks sweetpea74!

I tried my hand at it too - they're not nearly as nice though.  And I apologize for the bluriness in the photos, try as I might, I can't get the auto focus off.  I went with a video game theme, and found some rhinestones to add too.  The whole thing is covered with layer upon layer of decoupage, just as in the original.  I would recommend that if you make them yourself, walk around the house in them between layers of decoupage.  Mine are terribly stiff now, and have a tendency to cause blisters if worn for too long - but are well worth the pain Wink
