61  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / ten minute skirt for my little sister on: May 05, 2007 10:11:44 AM
My little sister spent the night with me last night and part of the day with me today. My stepmother also gave me a bunch of her old shirts she didn't want anymore last night so I decided to make a practice skirt for my sister to see how it would turn out before I made one for me.

It's not the best skirt in the world as I didn't really feel like hemming it. It's also a bit short on her but you get the point Smiley

and a twirly shot!

I have issues with finding long sleeved shirts so I finally just made myself one out of two old T shirts. Then I figured why stop there? And I made a tote bag too Smiley

63  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / The most frustrating, (but rewarding) skirt on the planet on: February 05, 2007 04:23:26 PM
This was my bigggest thing I've ever done, I'm a stinky sewer so I'm kinda proud of my skirt Smiley
It took 338 squares, about two black shirts and two gray ones. The squares took forever to cut out and then sew together, it was really annoying after awhile. Sad

Me in mah skirt

It's nice and wide but not really long enough in some places so if I make another one I'll know how to make it longer.

I sewed a pair of shorts on underneath because I have a bad habit of tripping when I'm in a skirt

64  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / I tired of the skinny jeans, so I made bellbottoms and other stuffs on: December 09, 2006 02:02:44 PM
I didn't take a before and after pic, just an after.

legwarmers I made from an old T shirt, I don't ever wear 'em. Don't know why I made them but whatever I suppose

And a patch I have yet to cut out and put on my jeans, it's a koi fish ^.^

and finally (last pic I promise!) my kitty ears I made for Halloween but didn't post 'till now.

thanks for looking!

65  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Funky purple flower print totebag on: September 05, 2006 04:07:42 PM
I made this bag for school so I wouldn't have to carry my backpack to school on the first day. The fabric was hidden in the bottom of one of my grandmother's trunks. When I first pulled it out it was going to become a stuffed animal but I went for a totebag instead.

I didn't feel like pulling my books out of it so it looks kinda wonky but whatever. The inside material is a light minty sort of green.

I had this jean type of fabric laying around for ages and finally decided to do something with it, I made my first skirt :-) I plan to sharpie or bleach the skirt up with skulls and hearts. Maybe I'll post that some other time.


Gah! the waist ended up being two or three inches bigger than I thought it would turn out, and now it's falling off my waistless dress form


Don't mind my messy closet, My clothing is just lying on the floor 'cuz all I wanted to do was post my pics lol
67  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Napoleon Dynamite Poster Belt on: August 08, 2006 04:03:50 PM
Thanks to RubberDucky's Ducktape and DumDum's belt I was inspired to make a Napoleon Dynamite poster belt. I also made a bunch of Incredible Hulk ones.

Gah! the belts look horrible on my dressform but whatever.
68  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Incredible Hulk purse thing on: August 08, 2006 03:56:43 PM
It was going to be a messanger bag but I ran out of ducktape. *Sighs* Everyone and their grandmother can make a ducktape purse, it's nothing origional but I love doing it anyway.




Don't mind the messy closet, or the ugly American Eagle bag in the background, my sisters stuff was invading my space again.
69  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Stitch And BOTCH / Sewing machine crisis on: July 25, 2006 06:03:19 PM
I was in (grrrr) the middle of a very important (ok, ok, it wasn't THAT important but I was very involved in this project) skirt when oh! my thread snaps! I adjusted the tension not thinking anything of it and startd again when 2 seconds later it happens again! And again and again. I've had problems with the thread snapping before, I chalked it up as the thread was too thin/I was sewing too fast/the material is too thick/whatever but I never really got too involved with any of my projects on the machine before because I really enjoyed hand sewing (what was I thinking???) Anywho I dragged the sewing machine I got two years ago out from underneath the layers of dust and grime figuring this would be a faster/easier/more efficient way to sew my skirt I hooked it up made a simple skirt the thread broke several times but I didn't really think anything was wrong, I got used to the machine and was loving it and decided to work on a couple of very small projects and finally started a light denim type of fabric and started making a skirt. For the first hour or two everything was fine, the thread didn't snap and I had no problems with the machine whatsoever it neared 11 and my thread began to snap every two-five seconds, as soon as I would re-thread it it would snap again. Then the needle refused to move at all, the whole control system kind of jammed so that when I pressed the foot control the wheel would move as it was supposed to but make a noise that it wasn't supposed to and the needle didn't move up and down. I set the machine up for the night thinking it needed to cool down. Today I started sewing again and it still refuses to work, adjusting the needle doesn't work as it still refuses to move. Sometimes it starts as if it's going to work again but then doesn't follow through. I called the company and asked for help but their suggestions (unscrewing the balance wheel and flipping the washer around) didn't help. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? My step mother is ordering a new machine for me but if I can fix this one I would be very happy.

Yeah, being bored is always my downfall. I walked to the store with my friend and bought a bunch of poprocks, and ate waaaaaaaaay too many poprocks. So what's a girlie to do? Make a purse, that's the logical answer :-) I ran out of clear packing tape so of course the edges of the purse are collecting hair, and it's only the purses first day out :-( and yes, yes, those are safety pins.

The front


The back

Sorry the images are kinda fuzzy. The back of the purse says "Swear to shake it up and you swear to listen. Oh we're still so young desperate for attention" for you Panic! at the disco fans out there.
