22  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / messenger bag from fat pants on: September 09, 2006 06:19:28 PM
a couple years ago i lost some weight and I was stuck with a bunch of clothes that were too big for me. I kept a few things cause i loved the fabric they were made from, even though i had no idea what i'd do with them, well i recently got inspried and made a messenger bag out of a pair of pants. I used the messenger bag tut found on the ultimate tutorial list. the lining is some scrap fabric i had lying around from another bag i made.

23  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / it's dino-rific!!! on: August 01, 2006 04:41:21 PM
so I know this is probably the 80000 dino hoodie on here but I thought I'd share mine

it's very hard to get a good picture of your back so please excuse the crappy pics, haha Roll Eyes

this is my first tutorial so I hope it come out clear enough. I didn't take pics while making it so I'll have to rely on diagrams i made on the paint program on my comp.

I bought the hoodie at Deb on sale for like $13. it was a great deal and i wish i had gotten more, but i already owed my mom money, so i only got one. Sad

to make the spikes i folded the green fabric in half and used a straightedge to make a rectangle and divide the rectangle into triangles like so

cut out the triangles, make sure you cut through both layers of fabric. you also might want to pin the layers together so it doesn't slip and the fabric matches up right.

Next, with wrong sides of fabric together, sew two sides of the triangles together, the side you leave unsewed will be the base of the spike. turn spikes right side out.

Then grab your hoodie and start placing spikes. I started on the hood cause there was an easy seam for me to follow down the middle of the hood. I made the bases oval shaped so the spikes would stand up some and not flop over. pin and sew. I used my machine, but some of you might find it easier to sew by hand, whatever your preference.

once I got to the back of the hoodie the seam on the hood ran out so I didn't have a line to follow, so i just tried to place the next spike right behind the spike before it, trying to make it as straight as possible.

that's pretty much it, just sew spikes until you've reached the end of the back. once again i hope this was clear enough. if you have any questions feel free to PM me.

25  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / white military-style hat on: July 30, 2006 11:24:17 AM
I've been obsessed w/ those military inspired hats since i got one in toronto back in may, so I thought I'd try making one. I used the "topi" pattern from knitty.com, but i shortened the brim,  and I made a knit flower pin to give the hat some flair.

27  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Stenciling: Completed Projects / Andy warhol Marilyn monroe stencil on: July 16, 2006 01:54:50 PM
ok, I may possibly be insane, but i decided to stencil a shirt using the famous andy warhol painting of Marilyn Monroe, but it actually came out pretty good. I'm absolutely in love with it.
here's the picture i based it off of.

close up of the shirt

in some of the pics the faces look kind of smushed but that's just because the shirt was bunched up, it doesn't really look like that when it's laying flat.
28  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / knit flower on: July 14, 2006 01:39:23 PM
I saw this on knitty.com and I just had to try it. it was alot more work than I thought it would be but I love it and I'm probably going to make some more!

I gave it to my mom since she pays for most of my supplies, and she's awesome, and she loved it.
29  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / I've been busy! on: July 14, 2006 01:37:17 PM
I'm having a yard sale tomorrow to get rid of some of my old junk and I also decided to sell some of my handmade crafts. I was plnning to make a bunch of purses, but as luck would have it my sewing machine broke about a week ago, so I decided to knit some wristbands, phone cozys, and ipod cozies. here's what I'm going to sell

I used the patterns from Sn'B but got creative with intarsia and colors.
I'm also selling some bags i made a while ago.

I made another ipod cozy but I'm not selling it because i like it so much I'm keeping it for myself, lol



so what do you guys think?

30  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reversible beach bag on: July 07, 2006 05:36:08 PM
I had a couple of loose beachy coverup type dresses that were way too big for me cause i lost a bunch of weight. and I saw them in the back of my closet one day and an idea hit me, why not make them into a beach bag?! and so here's the results

 I basically just cut a few inches off of the bottom and sewed them together. I used the arm holes for the straps.
