1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / My Homecoming Dress. Leopard&&//Lace on: October 25, 2006 06:11:56 PM
OK. so i dont really have any good pics, but you can see the top of it, i dont have any pics of the bottom, and no camera to take some ...sorry

but anyways i looove it. it was super comfortable. i got a big huge moo moo looking dress at the thrift store for like 7 dollars, and some lace @ walmart and i made what is now my favorite dress ever.

i know i have wierd faces going on but those are the only ones where u can see my dress...

the bottom goes to about 3 inches above my knee and lace on the edge.

i got alot of compliments from my friends who arent craftsters, but what about my craftsters?

2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / This little Piggy went wee wee wee all the way to bed. PJ shorts. on: September 03, 2006 09:39:48 PM
Everyone knows the famous tshirt to pants tutorial. I sorta based these PJ shorts on that, but it was regular fabric, not a tshirt. Its a little wierd but i do love them, the pigs are so cute, and i just want to go to sleep when im in them. i also got the flamingo print ones, and made a makeup bag out of it (after i tried to make a pair of these but messed up terribly).

Wal Mart...if you're wondering where i got this adorable fabric. Oh and it clearly states that this material isnt right for childrens sleepwear.

3  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Happy Birthday to meee! :]] on: August 29, 2006 05:14:45 PM
I am so luckyyy!!!

I got a new sewing machine, it's a Brother ES-2000. It has 77 stitch functons. i only figured out how to use like 40 of them, cuz those are the basic ones, but im really super happy i got it...cuz i had a little mini crappy kid machine that the bobbin didnt even work right, so of course, im way excited, but of course i'm out of fabric, so i turned a tee shirt into a pillow. i think ill need to go shopping for fabric!

Just thought i would share, this is one of my favorite birthdays!

4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / How to make a circle skirt...the perfect circle? on: August 04, 2006 04:21:34 PM
how can you get a circle on the fabric, i can never draw a circle even close to good enough...how do you do it?

5  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Not Knitting, Not Crocheting..Dont by hand. LITERALLY [raggedy scarf knockoff] on: August 02, 2006 01:56:00 PM
I made a knock-off of how_german 's Colorful Raggedy Scarf seen here:

or the first item on the featured project list.
I started doing this in 4th grade, but i dont think ive done it since around 6th grade....so when i saw her scarf i knew i had to make one! But i dont know how to knit, and i remembered how i used to make tem in 6th grade.... i cant really explain it, its just like wrapping the yarn (fabric in this case) around your fingers and pulling it over.... but it doesnt come out tight at all, so im thinking of making something so its tighter...anyways heres what i came up with....

One side.

the other side...you can kind of see how its not tight...

How i'll probably wear it...

or wrapped around your neck...it looks kind of weird like that close up...

just because i like this pic!

i really like it, its pretty heavy but i dont care...

6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Dang, Brit. You DO have a ghetto booty. PIC HEAVY on: July 25, 2006 09:10:10 PM
LOL. its always obvious...but never this obvious. that this white girl has a much more than average badonkadonk. But these pants give a new meaning to the phrase ghetto booty.
inspired by the victorias secret PINK sweats.
I used an old XL sweatshirt and based it off the tshirt to pants tutorial that i finally mastered...
i wish i wouldve had a colored sweater...black isnt really my thing...but i like them just the same

They say bRiT across the butt and in the front it has <3.

heres a close up of the brit, and <3....you cant see the color [[pink]] but you can see the design better.

closeup of the bottom of one of the legs...half a pocket...

and you have to get the idea of how huge my butt looks in these sweats. so...side shot:

i like them...theyre a little too low to be lounger pants...cuz you cant sit and have ur underz pokin all out!
and maybe they make my butt look a little too big...i dont want anymore attention for my butt...so i cant wear them out lol...but ill still use them somehow.

what do you think??
7  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Pink Plaid, Makeup Bag. A total oops. Im glad i messed up! on: July 20, 2006 04:57:19 PM
It was supposed to be the tinafish hobo. well that OBVIOUSLY didnt work out.  Wink
it took another try for that one to work out.
BUT this turned out way cute. the side has a little Handle.
Its just big enough to hold enough makeup for a day.
[[my makeup tends to add up like crazy]]
But I love it.

Here it is! :

closeup of the handle

I dont know if Ill use it...is it sellable? if not then i will use it!

Comments !?!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Mini Hobo Bag. ((4pics)) on: July 20, 2006 04:47:57 PM
MUCH love to tinafish!

well i didnt want to waste fabric if it wouldnt turn out right, so i used an old sideot sweatshirt, and a pink t shirt for the lining, and i thought it would come out the normal size. so wrong. but it turned out totally cute. i got confused on the straps so i just ended up using the loops out of a belt that i picked up the thrift store. i knew it would come in handy. oh and the zipper was from another purse that was retarded looking that i bought a couple years ago without further ado. my mini hobo.

as you can tell from my hand, its really small. i love it though. it might be too small. if it is, its looking like this is going to my little cousin. ://

love to hear your comments!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / what exactly is this called? knitting? crocheting?...??? on: July 09, 2006 12:07:02 AM
