33  Another Book for My Sister in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by heini on: January 11, 2010 01:27:06 PM
Couple of days ago I posted a cook book I had made of Reader's Digest book. After I had made that, I thought that my sister might need a baking book too. So I made this, and gave it to her on Yule a year ago.

A cake index page. Made using rubber stamps, water colour, puzzle pieces and some random paper pieces.

A close up of the same page. Aren't those heart brads cute?

My favourite page in the book: bun/ plain coffee bread (pulla in Finnish) index page. After this page there are recipe for basic buns and several recipes for fillings.

Close up of the stamped tags. The glitter is embossing powder.

Another favourite of mine. Back ground is gift wrapping paper, couple of vintage pictures and recipes for swiss roll and apple and oat bake.

And the cover. The title means something like "Bakings".

All the pictures here represent sweet recipes, but there were also recipes for bread, pizza and savoury pies.

34  Cook Book for My Sister in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by heini on: January 07, 2010 01:56:50 PM
I made this cook book nearly two years ago and gave it to my sister as a graduation present, but I haven't had pictures until now. Back then my sister lived with our mother, but was about to move to live on her own, and I thought a cook book would be useful. She's omnivore, but since she likes vegetarian food and I don't know how to cook meat, I made a vegetarian book.

I used a Reader's Digest's book of shorter versions of novels, because nobody wants to read them. The title is "vegetarian food", but in colloquial language.

Some of the recipes are my own and some are from other cook books, magazines or internet.

I made couple of pages that are bigger than normal. When they're folded, they're same size as the other pages. The right page in the picture is folded and inside the green vellum envelope is a card with a salad dressing recipe. Left page is unfolded and you can see two sauce recipes. There's more sauces under the folded page.

I also used some of the pictures that were already in the book. On the left there's a recipe for carrot crepes with tofu and mushroom filling and on the right page the old man tells the cowboy how the recipe can easily be modified.

Some recipes are glued to the book and some are on cards or giant tags. I made pockets and envelopes for them.

May. Yellow and green, but it looks yellow and brown in the picture.


July. Again, green looks brown.

36  Shirt + Mens' Trousers = Dress in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by heini on: November 23, 2009 12:22:46 PM
I started studying clothing this autumn. One of the first classes was reconstructing. I bought a black shirt and blue striped men's trousers from a thrift store (and supported animal shelter). The shirt was a little too small for me and the trousers were huge. I didn't have a plan when I bought them, I just needed material to work with at school. Very quickly I got an idea of a dress. And here's the finished product.

I cut out the sleeves and upper part of the shirt and turned it backwards. I also made it more closefitting by cutting some fabric from the sides and making darts. Then I cut all the seams off the trousers and made the bottom part (is it called lap?) and straps. Here's what it looks like from behind.

I saved the back pocket of the trousers and used it as a pocket on left side.

And here's what I started with.

Once again, I'm behind and need to catch up. I haven't posted here for many months, but I have crocheted during that time (mostly fillers). Here's some pictures.


October. Not enough contrast in my opinion.

Finally I have some pictures of the loot Bigmouth sent me. I have used some of them, so here's not all.

Photo, vintage, local and postal. I think the flower magnet with delivery confirmation paper is my favourite.

Found, typography, altered, sender's choice (origami star kit), chunky (there were 2 postcards made of chunky hand made paper, but I have only one left) and botanical.

I also got fancy scissors (sharp) and funny vegetable stickers (whimsical). Was that everything? Well, at least there's a lot of cool things I got.
