1  The Runaway Hat in Knitting: Completed Projects by kittty on: November 03, 2008 09:00:30 PM
This is my latest creation: The Runaway Hat. I call it that because I started with a basic pattern but didn't follow it all the way through and it sort of evolved as I made it. The pattern sort of ran away from me and the hat got a bit out of hand. I used a purple, worsted weight, acrylic yarn and I forget what size needles.

I tend to mostly knit on the bus or in tiny little spurts of time, so the hat took forever and there are different bits in it from different days, so it doesn't really look like one cohesive pattern. The first and second half of the hat look like two separate hats that got squished together into one. I think it turned out pretty well anyways. I'm not sure if I like it enough to keep it though, so tell me what you think!

2  Crochet Bangles!!! (a wee bit image heavy) in Crochet: Completed Projects by kittty on: September 15, 2008 12:52:22 PM
I've been seeing a lot of knitted bangles lately. Well really I mean old bangles that people have knitted over, so I decided I would try the same thing, only with crochet. I decided that my first one would be just a tester and instead of covering a plastic bangle, I would make one out of cardboard and experiment with that. I made it and it worked out so well that I decided to make the rest with cardboard too. So without further ado, here are my first two completed crochet bracelets!!!

The white looking one is actually a mix of white and pink, but the flash makes it impossible to tell.

And this is the cardboard base for my creations:

I made it out of about three strips of cardboard, all the same width. I stapled the ends together and stapled all the way around it, overlapping my staples, so that it is harder to bend the cardboard.

Here is the beginnings of my next bracelet:

It is a bright white wool with a somewhat lumpy texture.

I hope you like them!!!

3  ok I need help with this lime crime purple skirt!!! in Designer Clothing Homage by kittty on: July 07, 2006 10:50:45 AM
ok I found a pic of this skirt like a year ago and ever since i have been in love with it and want one that is the same!!! There are pictures of the front and back:



I'm pretty sure it's a lime crime design but i may be wrong. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what fabric that was and if anyone knew of any patterns that I could use to make one like it. I really am going to be picky though... I want one that is almost exactly the same!!! I'm not a great sewer but with my mom's help I should do pretty well. So if anyone could help that would be great!

4  betty boop shirt recon!!! *many pics!!!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kittty on: June 22, 2006 08:25:58 AM
ok so I had this betty boop shirt that was way too short and didn't fit my man shoulders so I cut it off under the armpits and added black and white straps. Then I cut it in the middle and added a bit strip of white material. I unfortunately forgot that the white stuff was not very stretchy so iy did not fit very well over my hips so I cut a slit up the side and stuck in some leftover polka dotted red material. It is now an awesomely fun shirt.

ok so here are the pics. Sorry but i don't have any before pics.

So tell me what you think!!!

Oh and please excuse my stoner face.

thanks. I really love the red polka dot material!!! I bought this skirt that was really long and really really large at a thrift store and I cut it up for extra material. I still have a ton of it left.

I sewed the bottom stuff on so that the jeans overlapped on the outside, but now as an afterthought I'm wondering if the jean material will fray too much and the sewing will come undone.

Here's a close up picture if it

Do you think I should redo it or something or do you think it will hold? I did it all by hand btw.

6  the skirt I just finished!!! *with pics* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kittty on: June 18, 2006 11:28:29 AM
this was inspired by many posts on crafsters. I used jean shorts that were way too short and a bunch of random fabric.

This is the front

This is the back

and the right side

7  corsety type shirt recon!!! *has a picture too* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kittty on: June 14, 2006 01:40:04 PM
this is a shirt I made from an old black t-shirt. Please excuse the bad picture. I'm wearing a red tank top underneath it, so that isn't part of the shirt.

It is one of my first recons ever and I got the idea from lurking on this site.

I'm thinking about adding some straps because I'm not the tube top type, but I'n not sure how I would go about that. If anyone has any ideas could they please share them?

ok I just made a photobucket account and I'm hoping this will work.

Excuse the bad quality of the pics, I don't have a digital cam so I used a webcam.

I'm proud of it even though it isn't that good. In the back I put little holes and strung a bit of ribbon through it and it held it tight so it was more fitted. I didn't sew at all on this and the back looks a little bit weird but I am proud of it anyways.

Please tell me what you think!

9  My first real t-shirt recon *now with pics!!!* in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by kittty on: June 11, 2006 02:52:26 PM
I made a very kool t-shirt out of a big t-shirt. It's one of those guys t-shirts that they don't make in smaller sizes so I cut a chunk out of it and laced it up. I also gathered it at the back a bit.

I only have one problem. I don't know how to put a picture up. I'm technologically retarded...
