I use/share Mamas Pfaff Hobby 301:

I guess its older than ten years, but younger than fifteen. I can remember that it was one of the less expensive Pfaffs.
Most things I do with it is changing the lenghth of jeans etc.(and Im really sick about this), so I dont have enough time for other sewing projects.

4  jewelry box in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by trashtash on: December 10, 2006 02:56:55 PM
 Shocked A real jewelry box, completely reconstructed!
The box was actually for shoes, the floral fabric a skirt and the velvet an old curtain.
Additionally I used lots of cardboard, a mirror from an empty powder box, velvet ribbon and my fabulous hot glue gun.

Closeup ringholder:

To compare:

I spend quite a lot of hours on my box, but it was not really difficult.
Im sorry if the photos look kind of shabby (Dear Santa, wont you buy me a real camera?!)...

6  zombie-themed shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by trashtash on: November 21, 2006 04:09:05 PM

7  old woolen sweater? - new cuffs! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by trashtash on: November 03, 2006 01:09:40 PM
This was formerly my lilsisters old woolen sweater...

...and now we got a lot of cuffs.
Just cut off the sleeves, choose your favourite length and sew the pieces tighter (it was a stretchy sweater).

10  wallet repair/makeover in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by trashtash on: October 02, 2006 02:25:24 PM
Yes, I read the rules and this cheap wallet was actually bought two years ago.
But according to bad quality I totally destroyed it. It had just a few seams and the rest was glued...

Im a greedy person, so I decided to disassemble the wallet and repair it.

I changed the black lining (too many holes) into a light grey and added new transparent foils. The thin old leather was in a lousy condition, but I had nothing else.  I started reconstructing it and it was a real mess (22 parts...).

The thin old leather looks like crap now... Well, I call it a "raw vintage-look"...most important are durable seams!

I dont know, if this is okay for the challenge...if not, Im just showing off.
