1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Hamilton on: November 07, 2007 05:24:43 PM
What/where are some thrift stores/op shops in Hamilton?
Or some cheap places to get material.
I only know of spotlight.

Are there any emporium places that have some?
I used to go to Ikes emporium in Auckland.
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Reversable skirt [4pics] on: July 14, 2006 03:34:01 PM
I was bored one day and I've recently just got myself a new sewing machine (my old one stopped working when my house burnt down last year!!) and some cheap cute material just to test it out with.
I did all the different stitches, I made some cushions, and then! I made this super cute skirt out of the 2 materials I had. (They're pyjama material!! I should've made PJS! dangit!)

How cute is that!!! But its REALLY small. It may possibly fit a 3 year old. But I didn't do it perfect, no elastic or zip or anything, so it wouldn't stay on Tongue Its just a toy skirt!!

Then my flattie was so in love with it she wants me to make one for her 5 year old niece, so we bought some more cute material. Its going to be pink with white polka dots and green with white polka dots. But I haven't made that yet!

Anyway, THIS here is the reversable skirt. I wanted one for myself, so I bought some pink and purple material.
Its not my best sewing skills at all, I guess I kind of rushed it a bit, but thats okay, its wearable, reversable, and so cute!
Its my fairy skirt.

And heres what its like on: (Pink side out Cheesy )


I might make a longer one next time, just cause I love that shaped skirt.
And also a round one, not square one.

I would explain how to make it, but I'm sure you all know how Tongue Its pretty much the most simple thing ever!
Comments welcome.

Edit: The pics with the skirt on the floor - Sorry its kind of crumpled! Its just been thrown onto my couch with all my other clothes! eek! Tongue
Also - the pic where I'm wearing it... I just noticed it looks kind of funny. The skirt has a reasonably thick black elastic waste band, and the stripey top also has a longer than usual black band at the bottom. So together .. they look kinda odd!! haha.
