1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / WAHHAHA more skirts! on: July 01, 2008 05:12:11 PM
Nothing too difficult but there they are

The first one used to be these unsightly huge, and I mean huge, gauchos,  it is now a skirt.  Donated by: my mom 

and below is the pretty ribbon my friend let me have, she's always letting me use her stuff, thanks K!

This one is made out of fabric I've had for years.  My cousin bought from this store to use ask a window scarf and gave it to me instead. Oh yeah The waistband is yellow because that was the only stretch material I had on hand. 

^^Why do I always pose like that? lol
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / reconstructed paisley early 80's dress. on: July 01, 2008 12:12:41 PM
So I found this dress in my mom's old tub of clothes and I loved it but sadly it was too big.... Sad

So I took the dress in on the sides and added buttons!  it looks much better in person and fits perfectly. 

Below is the button detailing

Ignore my weird arms, lol

and one last picture!

4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Beads: Completed Projects / Infinite Dreams....new dream catchers on: June 21, 2008 04:41:47 PM
So here are some new dream catchers I did a couple days ago.  They are wound with leather and hemp with beads. I love the first one.  Sorry the pictures don't really do them much justice, but I thought I would share.   


Moon and the Midnight Ocean

waves and the sand

tribal inspired

tell me what you think! 

5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / cool leopard/cheetah/zebra bolero recon from huge ugly dress shirt. on: June 21, 2008 04:26:46 PM
My aunt gave me this huge ancient dress shirt to "mutilate" as she put it a couple days ago. 


...I chopped off the bottom and sleeves, and tah-dah a Bolero is born!  there are acutally 3 ways I've thought about wearing this but I'm only showing two because the third one looks horrible.  There actually should be four ways but it's too small to button up over my boobs. 

way numero uno. one button and the top and one at the bottom

And...way numero dos.

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / awesome sunflower fabric into one cute skirt. on: June 21, 2008 04:01:54 PM
I found this amazing sunflower print fabric at FabricLand, like the only fabric store near me, sadly.  Anyway I fell in love with it and had to make a skirt!  I love sunflowers, they remind me of happiness and freedom.  I'm not sure why but when I look at them I feel inspired.  The skirt is made from a simplicity junior pattern.  Tell me what you think!

close up of the fabric

on my bed

and on me in my favorite tee!  Make Art not War! Imagine the whole army deciding to knit instead of fight.  whoa, and my trash can and hamper, just pretend they're scupltures or something.     

Feedback appreciated!
7  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Hand Crafted one of a kind Dream Catchers PIC HEAVY. EDIT: would you buy these? on: May 31, 2008 08:09:56 AM
Hello hello fellow crafters, I make so much stuff it's insane but I've been lurking for so long.  Recently, well not recently, but I discovered how to make one of a kind dream catchers, something I created for my art club and I'm thinking about opening an etsy shop.  Here are pictures of most of the ones I've made so far. 

Would you buy them if I had an etsy and how much would you pay? 

This one was made for a boy so I can make masculine dream catchers as well

Tell me what you think!  thanks!  Oh and there are two different sizes the green blue yellow one is the larger as well as the first red orange yellow.  Almost forgot, they're all custom one of a kind, meaning I couldn't sell the same one, just similar and everyone has hand picked their own beads or just told me the colors they wanted.
8  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Trash bag skirt/halloween idea. First post. Tell me what you think on: August 31, 2006 04:21:15 PM
Well this is my first post. This is one of my earlier projects. (I didn't have a cam so I couldn't put the up)My mom doesn't buy halloween costumes for me anymore so I come up with them on my own. Last year I was confused hahha. It was fun.

This year my idea is fairy trash. Hence the skirt. I'm not sure what I'm doing for the top but I'm going to buy wire to make wings and drap caution tape on them...long story. But anyway I hope you like the skirt. My friend wants one now. Please comment

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Pair of old jeans HELP! on: March 24, 2006 01:59:34 PM
Well I have this pair of jeans I love d.i.y. I'm quite new to it but I make b-day presents and jewlery I'm also new on crafster so what's up. I have a old pair of jeans that's has a small hole in the waist band and the hooks to put your belt in have decided to detatch themselves. I was wondering what can I do with these and I don't wanna put fabrinc in the middle and make a skirt I've seen that so many times. That's cool but do you guys have any other ideas besides that? thanks!

I coudl make them into a skirt but I was wondering does anyone else have a cooler idea?
