i have scars on my feet from summers of walking home from the beach with the sharp vinyl sides of the straps cutting into my feet. last year it was sooo hot i couldn't wear shoes, and i limped if i wore my sandles, so one night at work (i used to work at a dollar store) i took some of the no-sew hem tape and wrapped it around the straps, then i took some satin ribbon and wrapped that overtop, it took five minutes and it looked really posh too. i've also cut up some terrycloth dish towels and done the same thing on another pair, it's soooo comfy and soft.

i am on the same boat as everyone else here asking for a tutorial. i LOVE that and i would really love to see either a sketch, or a tute, or even a shot of the back, and sleeve detail, or perhaps one of you modelling it. it's so beautiful, although i'd be a little scared that i would totally mess up the lovely fabric if i tried to freestyle that. major props to you, my dear.

i like the skirt, but i love the kitchen. alas, if only my boyfriend would let me paint the house lime green. *sigh*

i love that so much, but i struggle sewing with patterns, i can usually follow the tutes on here, but thats only if they have clear pics to figure things out, all the technical terms and diagrams confuddle me. but your gorgeous jacket is inspiring me do one one for myself. does anyone on here know of a good site, or something somewhere, where they will explain the technical sewing terms that you come across in patterns in normal people terms?

i bet if you used fabric dye it would work as well, i'm not sure how it would react with shaving cream, but when i try this i'm going to mix up some rit dye and try it out. and i also was wondering about using it with a stencil. maybe if it works with the fabric dye i'll try that out. i can't wait until i get some money to try this project out, my minds going a mile a minute thinking of all the cool things i could do with this...

i love the blue and orange one, so pretty, it reminds me of coral in the ocean or something aquatic like that.

haha thanks, everyone. yeah, i LURRVE mr T. in my high school mr T was the perfect ironic icon. i have a t-shirt with the a team van on it, i was actually wearing it when i found the sheet at the sally ann. my friend who i gave the bag to actually just told me she saw the same fabric at value villiage so i gotta go down there and snatch it before anyone else can. i also just found some popeye fabric so expect a post showing that baby off too! and blackstar, i usually will do that on the inside of whatever i'm making if i make a present for someone, i'm all about making it a sentimental reminder as well as a cool gift!

how did you do the starry night image? an iron on errrr what? i'm dying to know, it looks so great!
29  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Attempt at a "Primp" Hoodie. on: March 18, 2005 05:38:53 PM
I am definitely going to wash it by hand, though, because I'm afraid the iron on will get messed up in the wash.

i gave up on using iron on transfers years ago, they never last more than 5 washings for me. i was thinking, that icecream cone is a really simple design, you could use some contact paper to make a stencil and then use fabric paint, it takes a little more time, but the effect is so much more durable, and you don't get the "film" that you get on the fabric like when you use a transfer.

this is a bag i made using the jordy bag tute, for my friends 19th birthday. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, now all my friends want mr. T bags, i'm going to make them for $10, which is pretty good since i got all the materials for under $4. I love thrift store sheets, they have the best fabric, and you won't find anyone else wearing the exact same thing! anyways, on with the pics... excuse the quality, but i've only got a camera on my phone...

hanging, it sags a little because i don't use interfacing but i love bags with sag... haha
