41  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / beanies i made for all the menfolk in my life *pics fixed* on: December 26, 2006 04:54:01 PM
here are the christmas beanies i made for all the guys in my life. it took me so long to figure this out, i just kind of taught myslef to crochet and didn't follow a pattern, just winged it. I'm hooked! (pun intended :p)

my dad's- blue to match his eyes

my brother's

my boyfriend's.... he loved it, i also made him pillowcases in matching colors. it's actually a chocolate brown, not black. he got me The Happy Hooker for Christmas so i guess he likes having a crafty girlfriend hehe


42  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / so....uh been a while. img heavy... 2 shirts, hat, and dress on: July 30, 2006 08:33:15 PM
been a while... here's what i got...

simple resize, and I added the black bands.

this shirt is AWESOME.... bright blue with black stars. It was huge and ill-fitting. I just resized it, but I'm thinking of making it more "blazer-ish", with a lapel and rounded bottom hems.

I am so proud of this hat. I made this hat from an old robe all my myself with no pattern and not even a hat to look at. It is so crappy and unfinished but I am still proud. The pic doesnt really show it but its a newsboy style cap.

best for last!! and the only one with a before pic...

my face cracks me up, haha. the polka dots were the only thing this dress had going for it.


Yay! cute!

I love you!! peace out girlscouts

43  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sidepanel pants (old project) on: May 30, 2006 02:07:29 PM
hey guys! i left my digi cam at work so i cant show you what ive been working on these past few days, but i got the "urge", as they say, to post... so here's something i made like years ago... prolly like december 2004.

These were a pair of old navy pants that didn't fit (too small), but i liked the color of a lot. now... sidepanely goodness!:

from the front:

i still have them and still wear 'em, they are looking pretty ragged now cause i never reinforced the stitching... but no mind, gives an extra breeze on hot days Smiley

HI everyone, this is my first post, although I've been an avid DIY-er for years. I've been lurking for a while and finally decided to join. You all have inspired my so much!

Here's some things I've been up to lately:

My grandma gave me this HUGE light blue tee. I liked the design (It says something about environmental education, and I'm a big treehugger.) But it was... well look at it. Gross. So I turned it into...

It didn't turn out exactly like I wanted. I was trying to do that off-the-shoulder band top I've seen around here but I totally messed it up. the band was too loose and wouldn't stay on my shoulders and you could see my boobies.  Shocked  So I had to improvise. I pulled the fabric together at the front and cut two holes, pulled a band of leftover fabric through and tied it. I think it worked out okay. I like the cowl effect in the back. I'm wearing it right now, actually!

And now for the next one. I was a little apprehensive about this because the lighter red tee is my FAVORITE shirt. It's an Ani Difranco tee that I got at her concert a few years ago. But my grandma (I get a lot of clothes from my granny, hehe) had given me this huge ugly burgundy polo that I thought went well with the color of the Ani tee. Here they are in all their crimson glory:

I married them, and now they will live out their lives together as this spiffy shirt:

Basically I took the sleeves and collar from the polo and put them on the tee. I runched the sleeves and the seam connecting the sleeves and collar and also added the band at the bottom to give it a lil length. I love it!

I saved the best for last! Another grandma goodie, haha. I paired this ugly blue nightgown:

with the polo from the above shirt to make this!:

I lovelovelove it. It has ruffled sleeves, look!:

And little heart appliqués! The neckline was a bitch to do but I think it turned out well. I wore it to lunch today.

Well thanks for existing, Craftster! Hopefully I can hit up some yard sales tomorrow and find more clothes just waiting to be hacked up and show all you guys!
