1  bow top? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by waffley on: February 01, 2009 04:21:56 AM
I just learned that I got admitted into San Francisco State University. :') So to feed off my energy high I started sewing. I dunno if these are really called bow tops, but how it's gathered makes me think of a bow, so...

edit: I forgot to say I made this out of a red t-shirt and a black t-shirt that I bought a while ago because I was crazy and thought I would comfortably fit a child's small.

Right now it's strapless - but I'm thinking I should add straps, any opinions?

Thanks for looking Cheesy

2  Hooded t-shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by waffley on: May 04, 2008 04:55:01 PM
Hi all! Today's recon is project #23 from Generation T. I didn't like it without sleeves so I reattached the sleeves afterwards and tried to make them ruffly. The shirt is a design my cousin made (before he discovered fabric paint) Here ya go:

Oh and the maroon sleeve is the shirt I'm wearing under sorry Cheesy

3  Patterns for jersey fabric in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by waffley on: May 01, 2008 12:08:35 AM
Hey guys,

I bought 1.5 yards of really cute fabric the other day:

(sorry about image quality, my good camera is at a friend's right now)

I'm having some trouble figuring out what to do with this. Since it's a pretty busy jersey, I think it'd only really be good as a dress (please tell me if you think otherwise!) And a lot of patterns for jersey are really... shapeless. And would look like a potato sack on me.

Here's what I've found so far:
Kwik Sew 3414
Kwik Sew 3333
McCall M5575

If anyone has any recommendations please let me know Smiley Thanks!

(sorry this is a totally specific request :x)

4  Just in time for spring break! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by waffley on: April 16, 2008 05:15:45 AM
Hello all! Spring break comes late for me every year, and what better time for some bonding nights with my machine? Anyway I just finished this bikini using project 49 from Generation T:

(excuse the sucking-in tummy and webcam pictures Cheesy)

I forgot to take before pictures, but just imagine it as an L t-shirt on an XS person. These were t-shirts that Nintendo Power gave out to their third-place sweepstakes winners @_@;;

Anyway, thanks for looking Smiley This is my first completed clothing project (aside from hemming pants, etc but that doesn't really count does it Tongue)

5  Rushing... Chocomice variation! (complete w/ photos) in Winter Holidays by waffley on: December 24, 2006 03:48:09 AM
Hey, long time lurker, first time poster. Cheesy

Anyway, I'm putting together a huge present for my beau. He's somethin' special. Cheesy

He keeps complaining he's cold whenever I'm on the phone with him, so I made a fleece tie blanket out of these two blankets I got over at Rite Aid. I basically took two fleece blankets of different texture and shade and made them into one blanket. Unfortunately, he's 5'11" so it's not really his height, but at leas he won't be so cold at the computer. I'm REALLY sorry that I don't have any photos 'cos I wrapped it already, but I did get a neat scarf out of the leftover material from the fuzzier blanket:
(pardon the kitten on my lap and pajama pants hanging on the chair...)

So I saw this (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=69486.0) and thought, WHAT A REALLY GREAT IDEA. Now, I don't necessarily have the talent or fine motor skills necessary to make them as great as McJulie-O did but I thought I'd give them a try anyway... Uhhh... the result?

You may notice that I didn't use sliced almonds. Well, uh, I didn't have any. >_> So I used more chocolate chips. The darker heads are dark chocolate.

These two monsters got this way 'cos I made the mistake of popping the bowl back into the microwave for 20 and the chocolate seized, but I Was almost done so I didn't really care. <_<; Luckily it's probable that my beau doesn't care either.

I went photo-crazy. Sorry. :]

Materials...after the whole mess.

I got a chance to start a new foil ball!

I'm 15 and I still play with my food.  Grin

I found a cherry without a stem and got reminiscent of my school's Winter Ball so I just took some syrup and made a Shirley Temple. Grin

Next was a box of store-bought candles, so you don't have to see that. Tongue And the last part of his present will be a/some store-bought penguin(s) since I have like no fabric or stuffed-animal-sewing skills whatsoever. D: I'm going to have to do a lot of store-hopping today. (it's 3am) Wish me luck.

Hopefully my guy doesn't see this before he gets his present. :]

Wish me luck~

Oh yeah, thanks for reading through my tangents... ._.;
