1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Faulty Adidas leggings into strapless LBD on: August 05, 2019 01:16:04 AM

Hi Craftster, wow think it must have been 5 years since I last posted! I'm branching out into the world of dressmaking!

Had a bunch of terrible quality Adidas leggings, the stripes kept coming off and they were pretty see through. Customer service weren't very forthcoming with help or a refund, so voila! A very stripy dress, just in time for a music festival later this week!

No pattern, just tried to piece the legs together keeping the stripes as parallel as possible and then kept trying it on and pinning and nipping.

Hope you like it x

ahhh--the joy of sewing!  Your skirt turned out really nice!

Now you will have the chance to make things to wear suited to your own personality...u which is the main reason I learned how to sew decades ago!

Good for your mom for passing on a skill that you will have always!

Cute fabric and nice style!
Thankyou! Yes I'm already excited to start making other thingsand learning how to follow more complicated patterns.

Ps I work in a primary school hence how I'm allowed to wear pink dolphins ha ha

My mom taught me how to sew today. I chose 4-way stretch fabric, much to my mom's chagrin. Both incredibly pleased with the result,finally a skirt I can wear to work that suits my personal style!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet inspired by patchwork: Sawtooth star (Work in progress) on: January 17, 2016 02:41:03 PM
Hi all!

Started working on this blanket for my mom's birthday. Two days' work so far and I'm loving how it's coming along.

My mom is an avid patchwork quilter so when I discovered half-granny-squares I loved the idea of piecing them together to make a patchwork quilt design!

This is a sawtooth star, one of my mom's favourite blocks (nearly, but not completely, joined together). I'm hoping to add some smaller sawtooth stars around the outside and keep building to a double bed size.

Oh wow, that's excellent! Have you seen their new Pitbull Terrier video? (Probably a "yes" if they're one of your favorite bands. Wink ) That would be a creepy hoop for sure! Wink
Thankyou so much and
Yes but I must say I was a bit underwhelmed by it...I much prefer the video for evil boy and the short film Umshini Wam
