1  my holy hoodie is no longer drafty! :) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by woo_me on: January 10, 2010 11:48:46 AM
ok, so i got this really-super-warm-beautiful-chocolate brown hoodie a couple of years ago, and the first time i ever wore it i burned a hole right through it! (don't ask...)  fast forward two years and i'm still only able to wear it around the house over my pajamas because if I go outside in this thing with a ginormous hole in the front, it gets a tad bid drafty.  well, i found less than a yard of this beautiful gray blue fabric in my stash, and i decide to make my hoodie wearable again.  so i cut out some bird silhouettes in the fabric, and hand sewed 'em on!

right under this bird on the branch is where the huge hole was.  you can't even tell now that it was there!

i really need to lint roll this and get the little pieces off that frayed everywhere!

if anyone knows of anything i can do to stop the ends from fraying anymore please let me know! i tested out some extra of this fabric and tried the whole "lightly burn" the edges trick, but the entire piece caught on fire, so i don't wanna do that.  (i'm beginning to think me and fire just dont work well together.)  I like the edges a little frayed how they are, but if i wash it i don't want it fraying anymore!

cc welcome! Smiley

4  Framed Scrapbook Page! in Scrapbooking: Completed Projects by woo_me on: July 05, 2009 10:05:59 PM
I actually made this for my sisters graduation present.  It was a shadow box/ scrapbook frame that i found for 50% off at hobby lobby!  I got a lot of pics of me and my sis and made this huge collage and added pins, and fabric, jewels and rearranged them and everything to get this masterpiece  Tongue haahaa

the little jewels you see around the pictures were not connected on a strand...they were all individual and took a LONG time to put each individual one into place...but i think its worth it! Smiley

I think I may go back and add a little something in the space to the left of "sisters" just because it looks plain....any suggestions?

5  Go Team! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by woo_me on: July 05, 2009 09:57:56 PM
My boyfriend coaches a basketball team and I was gonna go to one of his games, so being the awesome coach's girlfriend that I am  Wink I decided to make a shirt to support the team.

I got this huge plain red Tshirt...painted the team name with some flames on the front....cut it up so it fit me and cut a little v in the collar. 

His team is not the fastest, biggest, or strongest, but he always encourages them to hustle, and PLAY WITH HEART! so i decided to put that motto on the back~!

sorry about the cell phone pics...my DC is broken Sad

6  Home Sweet Gnome! :) in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by woo_me on: July 05, 2009 09:50:49 PM
Soooo first of all a little history behind this yard gnome.  My boyfriend told me that if he ever got his own place with a yard the one thing he would want would be a yard gnome!   Well when he finally got his own place (he was living with his bro) he FORGOT to get a gnome...lucky me, it was the PERFECT house warming present.  He LOVES the dallas mavericks so i made him a little maverick gnome.  I found the gnome for 50% off at JoAnn's and repainted him to the maverick colors, I made the sign he holds because the mav fans call themselves Rowdy, Loud, and Proud!  (Previously the little guy was holding a butterfly net)  The little snail is an inside joke...but still cute none the less!! Smiley

Enjoy! and sorry about the cell phone pics i broke my DC ....  Sad

7  HELP! 21 and need ideas! UPDATE: *NEW PICTURES OF FINISHED PARTY!!!* in Party Planning by woo_me on: March 05, 2009 09:34:39 AM
Since I was little I've been collecting pink elephants, so with my birthday coming up, when I found some pink and brown invitations with pink elephants on them, I knew it was meant to be.  I'm turning 21 and figured the pink elephants totally fit in with the occasion..heehee!  Anyway I want to keep with the pink and brown theme...I just dont have very many ideas for decorating.  We will probably have a few tables, the tables with the food on them, a dance floor, a stage(I'm having a musician come play), and then of course wall space...if you have any ideas, please feel free to help me out its coming up really soon!

this is the banner i painted! i got a thick poster board type thing from hobby lobby its like 18X36 inches or something like that.

this is the ribbon i got to hang it with! i'm just gonna tie it in a cute bow. Smiley


finished product!
it took me forever to get these up here but here they are!

this is the present table where i set up my collection of pink elephants and asked everyone to right me a note on little pink elephants that i made!

this is the stage, and some seating, i asked my dad to make me some saw dust on the floor so that everyone could dance!

this is the table where we had the food set out, also you can see the margarita machine on the right!

some tables for people to eat, and my poster and pretty lights in the back! also you can see a space heater because it was so ridiculously cold that night!

SOPAPILLA cheescake was my bday cake!

TACO bar!

anyway, not too exciting pictures but the party was really awesome! Smiley thanks to everyone who helped with ideas! I did end up wearing a brown dress with pink shoes, put out my pink elephants, cut out pink elephants, the pink marshmellows dipped in chocolate were such a hit! thanks again! Smiley

8  TWILIGHT shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by woo_me on: November 09, 2008 12:14:07 PM
So, i'm extremely excited about twilight the movie!!! i'm going to see it opening night and decided that it just wouldn't be the same without a shirt i made myself!  A few weeks ago I went to a Movie Character Party and me and my friend were wayne and garth from waynes world...so i was left with an oversized black shirt which i promptly used for my twilight shirt!

i painted the "fanpire" on free-hand trying to be close to the book's font:

I cut off the original collar, cut the sleeves shorter, sewed it up on the sides to make it fit me:

and i painted on the back in white, and added red sparklies!:

it says. "everytime it thunders, i wonder if vampires are playing baseball"
its backwards in the pic because i took it in the mirror.

for some reason in the first two pics there are white dots on the black shirt....those definitely aren't there in real life so i dont know whats causing that!
