1  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / feedbag wristlet! on: December 27, 2007 08:21:12 PM
I made this yesterday and i'm all smitten over it! I made this from a discarded alpaca feedbag. Comments welcome and encouraged! I didn't get a great pic of the back but it says "animal feed" on it. Anyways here it is!

Thanks for looking!
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / All Breed feed bag purse and wallet on: September 27, 2007 02:39:54 PM
We have lots of animals and they eat All Breed. The bag it comes in is  this stiff plasticy-coated canvas stuff and it seems so sturdy and such a shame to throw it out when they finish a bag! So i decided i wanted to do something with it. I made this awesome messenger bag and i had enough left over for a wallet!

what do you think?
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Hemp silk fleur de lis dress! on: August 24, 2007 02:40:10 PM

let me know what you think? Thanks for looking!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 2 awesome festival outfits i made :) on: August 08, 2007 09:52:58 PM
my sister in law and my niece came to stay with us for a few days before they went to a festival up near portland last month. They had gone last year and had mentioned they didn't have anything cute to wear to the shows so i offered to make them something fun to wear.
I had sooooo much fun making these outfits! my SIL's outfit is made of black stretchy velvet and is paired with a super shiny hologram rainbow fabric. the skirt is made of a sparkly dress i found at goodwill. i cut off the bottom and used the hologram fabric as a waistband. i really like how  it looks with the hologram legwarmers!!
My niece's outfit is a bunch of calico fabrics and the top is hemp (pink) and a soft flannel (purple) and has hologram straps and and a strip in the bottom of the shirt.
the LOVED their outfits!! they said they got tons of compliments all weeked : ) anyways here they are!

comments welcome!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / dumpy sweater-->sassy hooded bolero!! on: December 26, 2006 08:24:32 PM
this was really easy and with minimal sewing too! i felted the 100% wool sweater by washing it on hot and then drying it on high. i didn't bother serging or finishing the edges cuz it really doesn't need it. it's so felted that it will never fray.
so here it is! ignore my grody face, i swear i'm prettier in real life!

i haven't put a clasp/button on yet cuz i can't think of what would look best. any suggestions?
comments, criticisms welcome!

This is my first post in a super long time but i just had to show off my gorgeous new creation! it's felted on an old wool sweater and then i used the piece for a flap on a wool messanger bag. i just finished it the other day and i'm incredibly proud of it! check it out:

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / hat brims? where do i fine these? on: July 30, 2006 02:25:43 PM
so i've been making these awsome sunhats with a wide brim that goes all the way around. They look really sweet but i've been using this really expensive waterproofed hemp canvas to make the brims and i'd like to use something a little less expensive. Does anyone know another stiff fabric i could use to make the brims for this style hat? or where to get brims?  TIA!
9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / my first post! winged tube top! TINY TUT ADDED! on: July 15, 2006 04:24:37 PM
i couldn't figure out what to call this shirt hence the name "wnged tube top". i think this shirt looks like it gives you wings. I'm in love with it! i made it out of an ugly t-shirt from goodwill. please excuse my dumb facial expression and my wedgied pants!

the pics aren't the best but you get the idea. LMK what you think!
so here's the tut! sorry it's so small, it's my first try, give me a break! you get the idea though. if you have any ?'s just ask! enjoy!
cut the middle piece for the tube top. stitch sides
use the two side pieces for the sleeves
the 2 side pieces should look like this. unfold and cut along the yellow lines
the fluttery edge is the longest outside edge. i stretched it and tightly zig zagged, hem the other edge, attatch the sleeves et voila!
