wow so you just made up the pattern for them, hey? I was thinking about doing that today while I was walking through Nordstrom's looking at the skirts like that that cost about $200 each.. Do they fit well after you made the top from a skirt that fits you and then just ruffled the bottom? I'm planning on trying it with some stuff i just have lying around anyway.. we have so much fabric in my house it's not even funny..
343  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dad's old shirt on: May 06, 2004 11:03:10 PM
This shirt belonged to my dad:

And I wanted it but it was (obviously) huge on me and not very flattering so I changed it up a bit

I just used a pattern I had for a raglan sleeved shirt and used the front of the pattern for the front of the shirt, etc, and used some random blue knit I had sitting around (It matched the blue in the shirt perfectly) to make the sleeves and collar.. i had enough of the yellow for it but decided it needed jazzing up.

hm.. looks like angelfire is being stubborn and not showing my pictures.. maybe that's just on my computer though? let me know if they don't work.

Ok.. several answers here Smiley

The boy I stitched by hand, the girl was machine done. I think the boy actually turned out better on close examination because the corduroy was a bit stretchy and i had the tension a bit wrong on the machine so it got a little bunchy and stretched out in a few places.

The way I attached the head to the body was that I centered the front of the head and stitched it to the front of the body, and the same with the back, and then put the shoulder pieces in afterwards. For the legs I twisted together three pieces of yarn and then put them through one of those HUGE needles.. not sure what they're called, you know the ones I mean? and then poked it right through the piece of fabric that made up the bottom of the robot. I had to wiggle it around a bit to get it through but it looks really nice! Then I tied a knot inside and voila!

I'm considering selling them on my friend's website, I have some purses up there right now (http://omglikewoah.pure-sugar.net). I can't figure out how much I'd charge for them though, or how big an interest I'd get in them.

I cut the record by heating it in the oven at 250 degrees and taking it out every couple minutes and hacking away at it with scissors.. It warped quite a bit so i had to keep flattening it back down with the cardboard i had to guide my size.  I read on here about someone who heated theirs over an electric burner and cut it that way.. sounds like it would work a lot better to me.  Those ones you make (luckyklover) are super cute! I like how the front opens like that. my dad has power tools, but I'm at college right now, so I'll probably use them a lot when I get home...

I made a journal out of an old record cover but when I went to have it bound the spiral binding machine at Kinko's couldn't punch through the cover because it was too thick...so now I'm not sure how I'm going to bind it.  Anyone have any ideas?

After reading Anu's post about her record covered notebook and about how she actually had made the front of a journal out of a rectangle cut out of a record I had to try it.. so I did.. here are my results. It could use some perfecting.. but I'm excited about what I got anyway Smiley (oh yeah, and my pictures aren't so good.. no macro button on the ol' digi cam.. but here they are.. )

since it's hard to read.. the album is "Urban Chipmunk Featuring Alvin, Simon and Theodore"... I laughed so hard when I saw it I just couldn't resist..

I don't have an electric burner so I tried this using the oven method.. It did warp quite a bit! But i flattened it back down some and now it just has character..i need to smooth the edges too but i'm at college right now and I don't really have ANYTHING to work with!

Hmm. . I'm not sure when I'll be making another one of these, but if I do i'll make a tutorial Smiley If you want to attempt one yourself they're pretty easy.. just rectangles and such. If you had questions about a particular part of them that you can't see then I can answer it..

The inspiration for this project was my friend Luigi's birthday.. I didn't know what to get him and then I remembered how much he loves robots! So I made him a stuffed one. I had a really hard time sending it to him, so I made myself one too...haha..

His and hers robots, as it were.

I didn't want to spend a lot of money on this project, so I went to my thrift store to get the stuff... I came away with an old pair of corduroy pants, a pillow (for the stuffing..) shower curtain hangers (hands..) and buttons
