1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / awesomely rad bottons on: September 08, 2004 04:41:01 AM
I bought this button machine the other day at our salvation army labor day sale, and have been going crazy witht these wierd ass buttons. they are huge!
well anyways, I was hoping if anybody who has a website and came across this and happened to enjoy them, would possibly consider posting them on their site for my sale, b/c i'm not very good at web design. so it would be a compliment and profit in your pocket, so just send me a pm.
let me know what you think, any idea's on how to make them even cooler?


thank you<3
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / sweater halter--cordouroy skirt--leg warmers on: June 09, 2004 04:25:04 AM
a few projects i've been jumping to a fro on. i hope you likes.


all very simple and fun. i made the halter after I cut the armsleeves off of a sweater, to make the leg warmers.

the pants where to small in the waist, so I cut down the seam on both sides and stitched a piece  of fabric from the legs going to opposite direction on each side. the bottom I pleated, but it came out with a slightly ruffled look, I don't really care which way though. i like it, and I'm taking it on vacation w/ me Grin
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / scarf skirt on: June 07, 2004 03:38:10 AM
I saw some one at my old skool made a skirt out of sheer fabric. I want to make  a similar skirt out of old scarfs i have lying around. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out how to construct a skirt like this.
i was thinking about hemming a casing in the top and stitching tgether on the bias. or maybe i could just knot all the scaves onto a piece of elastic or ribbon. i want to make it wearable w/ a slip but i don't want to be able to see the slip.
if you could just please help. thank you.
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Patch Shirt on: June 02, 2004 02:22:26 PM
I made this for my mom, it's a print cut out of a shirt and sewn onto another on using zig-zag stitch. It was difficult because the patch was a sticky material, but it should be easy using any other type.
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Budget Living Shirt on: June 02, 2004 02:17:43 PM
Here's a shirt reconstruction I found in Budget Living, there's detailed instructions and everything. I also made a skirt but I forgot to take photos of it, I'll add it on later.
this is the shirt
and this is a detail on the sleeves.

I just cut around the neck, bottom, and sleeves. Cut up scraps into leaf shapes, pinned them on the new sleeve holes and hand stiched them onto the shirt. I was so pleased after it held up in the wash and dryer.

Let me know if you want any more info.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / duvet cover on: May 14, 2004 04:35:27 AM
I spent nearly 6 months working on and off this project. I went to JoAnn's and bought a bunch of clearance fabric, that was colorful and adorable. then i sewed them together pressing and pinning and sewing! i eventually ran out of fabric b/c i'm making it for a size double cover so I bought and old sheet from salvation army and stitched it around the edges to finish off my time consuming piece. i love the colors in it so much and how it brighted up my room, it's a big step from a dark blue one. hope you likes.


thanx for all the comments, it was really easy to sew,
i just started with two pieces of fabric, right sides together, and stitched them up one side, cut off the excess, if one piece was longer than the other, and kept repeating on all four sides. adding and adding and adding. until i got this.
made a hem on the bottom, and sewed a piece of fabric to the back like a pillowcase and left the bottom open (the side w/ the hem).
and added snaps or velcro to the bottom to close shut.
simplicity, i'd like to what other people come up with if someone else tries it.
7  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / dresser on: May 14, 2004 04:31:11 AM
i painted this dresser, and spray painted the handles white, and with a tip i got off here, i put the little marbles on w/ the pic. behind them, and i am pleased.
