271  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Pirates get chilly too ...Hoodie on: August 12, 2007 08:23:57 PM
  Well My sister loves pirates too.....
                      But .. she doesn't like corsets or skirts much .. So when I got this free hoodie I decided to make it piratey for her .. the original fit was fine except she has long monkey arms so I had to lengthen the sleeves which i worked into the design using my awesome flannel parate ship and map fabric in a stagard stripe.. I also rit dyed the net fabric I used on the pockets ( it was originally baby blue) sewed on shells and an anchor button a few star buttons , Made a cool pirate skull and cross bones applique for the back and hand made and beaded an octopus applique for the front plus made a shell zipper pull ... I haven't given it to her yet .. Please tell me if you like it and if you think she will??

this is the original hoodie ( except I had already started on the sleeves ) but you can see it had the dreaded logos that needed covering

Now the Pirate Hoodie

Close up of the hand beaded Octopus
the bead represent his suction cups

and you can also see the shell zipper pull .. I poked a hole in some shells I got at the dollar store

Now  the back !

and THE BEST PART ! the googly eye! Shocked

 Thank you as always and have a wonderfull eavining
272  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Scary Pumpkin and News paper pants! on: August 06, 2007 11:11:44 PM
Hello ,

    Ive Long since wanted to make pants .. and ages ago I saw A great tute..http://community.livejournal.com/t_shirt_surgery/3597625.html
posted by theresat  And honestly I didint get it at first .. then spontaneously the other day ..it popped into my head again and this time it made prefect since .. so heres what I came up with ..

Scary Pumpkin man pants for me !

 Shocked I look like a Zombie In this pic ! LOL  Grin

to show the legnth

I loved them so much ...  I and had another scary pumpkin man shirt .. so I made another for my sis.. since she is bigger than me I added inserts to the side ! and now I actually like hers better Wink

the Idea was so fun and easy that I decided to try I pair from scratch using the same method

and I got these great pj's

here it as as a set with the top I made a few weeks ago

I don't know if you can tell .. but even though the waist is elasticated I it also ties with a decorative bow ( of the same fabric) on the side ..

Thanks so much for looking ! This is my first time attempting pants and I'm so Happy that I finally did .. Please tell me what you think of them

 Have a great night

274  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / criss cross back tank on: July 26, 2007 07:47:49 PM
HI Wink

   here is another stretchy tank top ( I told you I'm addicted now !)  Cheesy
This one is a cool Black and White sorta checked pattern .. But since I got neon green binding  .. I colored some of the squares neon green to tie it all in...it pretty much the same as the last few tanks Ive made only I have a huge problem with my straps falling alot so I made this one crossed in the back .. and it fits  SO MUCH BETTER ! 

ignore the little extra piece .. i got sticking out , I need to trim it .. but I was In a hurry Grin Embarrassed Cheesy

Thanks you for looking

Have a great night

276  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Extra Extra read all about it ! tank top! on: July 24, 2007 01:28:05 PM
Hello everyone,

Since I started sewing stretchy fabric .. I'm addicted now !... I went all over my town and couldn't find much of a selection of stretch fabrics Sad Angry  I went to3 stores and Finally Wal Mart of all places had some pretty awesome .. purple and blue news paper collage print stretch fabric .. id actually been eye balling it for a while but never actually touched it , and didn't realize it was stretchy  Embarrassed  Cheesy , I'm glad I finally did .. so I bought a bunch ! and here is my first .. projest with it ..tell me what you think ...
its a pretty simple tank .. I used some cool stretch knit lime green binding for the top and left the bottom surged ..

some close ups .. the cam doesn't do the colors justice .. they are really bright !

thanks for looking !
have a great day

277  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Stair way to a skulls mouth? on: July 21, 2007 10:13:56 AM
Hello ,
 well .. since I finally attempted sewing 2 way stretch fabric .. and it turned out pretty good .. i decided to combine a small scrap of stretch camo .. i had with a previously failed T shirt recon .. ( where i was only left with the front of the shirt salvageable )...
then I added bright green Binding .. I really like .. what do you think ?

and some close ups of the actual shirt print .. its a Halloween design of a stair was to a skulls mouth ...

thanks so much for looking
Have a great day/night
278  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / LPCOD: little peacock Christmas Ornament dress on: July 19, 2007 06:02:14 PM
hello everyone ,
   Ive been wanting to work with with 2 way and 4 way stretch fabrics, but haven't had the opportunity and .. didint want to waste money .. if for some reason it was really hard to work with ...any way .. I didint even realize that i already had some in my stash  Embarrassed Wink ..I found it today by accident and even though the print isn't my first choice I decided to use it as practice .. and I actually kinda like the results and my bF especially does ..
 tell me if you guys think it looks OK ..

the print is some weird like blue peacock feathers with what kinda look like red Christmas ornaments and some other type of leaf .... T tried to make a sorta Little black dress .. ( but not black ) .. i didint have a pattern but based the size off a favorite old tank ..( also i know the fabric being white and all is a lil see through ish  Embarrassed .. so it will most likely be worn as a nightie ..plus its really comfortable

I used some knit binding for the top .. but just left the bottom surged

The fabric was a bit tough to work with ( possibly because I was down to literally one machine needle and it was kinda huge ..my surger worked great .. but for reinforcing the seams on the regular machine .. I had to use paper .. Ive never papered seams before and I'm not even sure if I did it correctly ( BUT IT WORKED )  Wink Smiley Cheesy Grin I just used regular printer paper
here is a pic

and here is a sorta close up of the fabric ..

thanks so much for looking and Id really love some feedback on this one ..being that its My first time working with this fabric...

Have a wonderfull night/day
279  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Quick Camo skirt on: July 18, 2007 11:11:50 AM
Hello ..

here is a quick pleated skirt I whipped up from some lil boys urban camo pants I was given ... it has front and back pockets.. tell me watcha think ...

the back pockets have SUPER STRONG ! Velcro closures .. nothings falling outta these babys!

thanks for taking the time to look
Have a good one

oh and the bottom edge is finished with 2 rows of stitching ..but raw beneath that .. so there will be a cute fray to the bottom after its been washed ...
280  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Girl on a motorcycle .. and much much more ! on: July 18, 2007 11:05:12 AM
Hello everyone ...
 Ive been super buisy lately .. so tell me what you think of my efforts...

first off girl on a motorcycle ..
this fabric has tattooed girls on motorcycles and says stuff like vrooom and woosh

and me on my scooty puff Jr !

close up of the new neck line ( I finally did one a lil different)
plus I made the cool charm on my necklace

the back .. with the white grommet tape !

Valentines day Singles corset .. with lots o lace
this one is a little big on me .. plus its not tied correctly in thees pics either ...

I also made another pirate corset .. pretty much the same as the last only this one has some different details such as the octopus applique and features an awesome new strap closure that was my bf's Idea ..( necklace closure! )

I came across this recently .. I actually made it for new years 2003 I think ..It is ALL hand sewn .. and I'm actually pretty impressed at how well it looks .. I guess my hand sewing skills were much neater .. when needle and thread was all I had

its a shiny super soft velvet with a lace pattern of black and putter/silver.. its really hard to photograph
it also has a necklace for the top part ..

side view

back . it would look cuter If I weren't wearing a bra .. lol

well thanks so much for looking ..
 Id love feedback
 Have a great day/night
