1  CLOTHING / Shoes: Discussion and Questions / make my own flats on: April 22, 2007 03:02:12 AM
Hello everyone!

I need your help. I saw this post https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35344.0 And now I really want to make my own ballet flats. I cant wait to make matching flats for my selfmade bags and stuff! At the moment I am still trying to make the pattern but I cant really figure out how they fit good.

Sorry for the many images ... How can I make them look more like shoes and less like slippers or socks. You can exactly see the form of my feet and the toe-cap is not round Sad What else do I have to change?? Please help me so that I can produce thousands of shoes Wink

PS: Ignore the bad sewing I just added some elastic really fast too look if that makes the fabric fit.

thanks, Magdalena
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / shirt to shirtdress and pullover to pullover :) +tutorial on: March 05, 2007 11:30:23 AM
Hello everyone!

I finally made my own shirtdress. I took an old shirt from my father:

Took off the arms, made it a lot mor fitted, added a small band out of the arms and added the skirt part (out of the arms too). Then I put little sleeves on it.

Here you can see the sleeves better:

And here the skirt:

Its far to short to wear it as a dress. I allready wore it over jeans and  I got many compliments... although it was more like a test. I want to make another one out of a more beautiful shirt Wink

My newest reconstruction is a pullover. I took a to big pullover...

(I allready started to rip of the seams here but it didnt look very different before Wink

and made it into this Smiley

I really really like it.
What do you think? I would like to know what you think about the fit of the pullovers arms. I took the pattern from a bought pullover and if it is good I would like to use it again... But I dont really know if I should change it and how.

Thanks for looking and help:) Magdalena
3  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / white fleece wraparound pullover on: February 17, 2007 02:21:15 PM
Hello to everyone Smiley

This pullover is almost finished... almost! I really need help because I dont know what the best solution for the closure is.

I hope you can see enough on this bad picture! In the pattern it is planned to do normal "stripes" of fabric and knot around the body (I hope you understand). But I dont want to do this because I think it would be cute do to something a bit more special. I just need the idea!

The rest of the pullover:

It looks as if the fit is terrible but it is not in real life  Wink

My favourite part, the hood Smiley

and the fabric that I love Grin

Please tell me what you think about the whole project and what you think would fit with it to close it!

Hey  Smiley

This is the first completed project that I show on Craftster. It took me about two and a half hour this afternoon (Im form Germany  Wink).Its maybe my 8th or so stencil. I think its not too original  Roll Eyes but i still like it. What do you think about the shirt? Can you still see where I filled in the bridges?

The pictures:
I hope you can see the placement on this

Hello everyone!

Im new here and Im from Germany... so my Englishis not the best Smiley

I searched before posting but I couldnt find an answer. I want to print a sentence on a shirt. How can I do this best? Is it possible with stencilling??? I dont want the letters to tall but Im a beginner and I wasnt able to cut out the little letters. Which material should I use to cut out the stencil? Which knife or scissors? Or would you use an other technic than stencilling? I hope you can help me , tanks a lot!!!

Greetings =)

PS: I want to have "Hey girl, have you seen that film with those kids in New York in the eighties? Oh, you have - Can I watch it with you anyway?" on my shirt. Its from "You cant steel my love" from Mando Diao. I just LOVE them and I neeeeeeeed this shirt!!!
