41  Photography Attempt in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by raining_dreams on: May 30, 2006 04:49:53 PM
 I am not a very good photographer, but I lately I have been wanting to get better at it. Anyway, here are my pictures that I took today:

 They are slightly digitalized becuase of the re-sizing I had to do  Undecided

42  My first shirt recon! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by raining_dreams on: May 29, 2006 08:13:11 PM
 I was inspired by justinexcore's (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51265.0) recon, so I made one of my own. It is very crooked and the piping looks awful... but I am going to make another one adn try to fix it.
 I started with a long-sleeved, woman's medium shirt (which was huge, and I had a picture but my mom accidentally deleted it  Roll Eyes), and I came up with this:

 Excuse the picture. I cannot take a clear picture when I shoot straight on, and everything else was fuzzy.

 All of you can bask in the glory of my horrific piping job  Roll Eyes I have never used piping, and like I said this i my first t-shirt sowing so it looks a little weird.
 I'm pretty happy with it... it's just a bit girly so I don't know about it yet.

 Ok, so you could just use the same pattern for the top, but handstitch some tulle into it, so it sticks out. Tulle is super cheap and pretty easy to gather that way.
 As far as the skirt, just make it longer than required in the pattern, and then fold and gather it- kind of like a bubble skirt. Then sew a skirt or even just a small piece of maroon fabric to the inside, and then make a sash sort of thing.
 Now that I look at it, this dress looks like a drop waisted dress, so maybe this pattern would work better:

 Simplicity 4399

 Again, you would just lengthen the skirt and omit all of the lacey stuff. Another plus with this dress is that it will show you how to make the sash. If you need any help, PM me and I will do the best I can  Smiley
 By the way, I was going to make that dress over the summer but I never got around to it. Maybe I will still attempt it. Good luck on your project!

 Do you know how to sow very well? If so, just take a pattern like this one:

 And just lengthen the bottom hem of the one to the right. Then just gather the bottom a little bit, all around until it looks right. Then buy red fabric and make an underskirt sort of thing. I forgot what the top looks like, so if you posted it I could help more  Smiley

 M-kay. Let's see. It looks like just three simple pieces. Like this:

 A front a back and the bottom piece, which I forgot the name of.

 After those pieces there is a small closure strap which is super easy. The only confusing part is the handles. Do you want them made out of the rope stuff?

46  This is what happens when.... in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: May 22, 2006 11:15:02 AM
 I have a boring weekend:

 I saw a picture of one sort of like it, and I had to have one. I winged all of it, which resulted in a really big waistband... so I had to tack it smaller and I have to wear a belt with it  Roll Eyes It cost about $4 dollars. I already had the black fabric, so the checkers and lace was all I needed.

47  Handmade Flamingos? in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: May 19, 2006 07:44:03 PM
 Does anyone know if it would be possible to make some flamingo lawn ornaments? If so, what would I make them out of?
 I just want some of the normal, run of the mill kind. Like this:

48  Skirt to Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by raining_dreams on: May 19, 2006 07:35:49 PM
 I love my thrift store. I bought a red polka dot dress, size 8 or so, for $1.50. A few hours later, I came up with this:

 Please, please ignore the lame pose. I am very bad at posing for pictures, and I was looking over my shoulder at the time :/
 Anyway, I just added a little shaping to the top, sewed on straps and a waistband. It came out super girly, so I doubt I'll ever wear it. Darn :/

49  *Whee!!* Toaster Messenger Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by raining_dreams on: May 15, 2006 07:57:24 PM
 Yes, you heard that right. A Toaster Messenger bag:

Detail of the Toaster:

 I got tired of having a plain old curdoroy bag, and everyone has a Nightmare Before Christmas, My Chemical Romance, etc. messenger bag... and I wanted something interesting. Also, it was very late at night... so that is part to blame.
 I pretty much just cut out a few squares and rectangles and sowed them togather. I sowed the bag together backwards so many times, it's not funny.

50  Making cap sleeves in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by raining_dreams on: May 15, 2006 07:22:03 PM
 I'm going to be converting another one of my skirts into a dress... but I need to have some sort of sleeve. I was thinking of adding a sleeve that's sort of shaped like this:

 The black is the actual sleeve and the red is the dress. I'm not sure what that type of sleeve is called. Anyway, how exactly would I go about making it? Do I just cut a triangle, or do I make an attached ribbon thing and then stitch the sleeve to that?
 Sorry if I'm being confusing. I just don't know how else to say it. Any help would be very appreciated!
