1  Re: T-shirt to hoodie with Tutorial (tons of pictures) in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by astrea on: August 04, 2005 11:00:45 PM
Thanks, everyone.  I'd love to see the finished product if anyone uses this tutorial!

i love you. end of story <3  Kiss
I love you, too :-)

argh.... i really want to make this but i don't have a hoodie i can pattern it after... where do you guys find your hoodies? (i only have one and it's really wonky with the stitches.... i don't like it much. Sad ) i've tried searching for it online but only heavyweight sweaters come up.
If you don't have a hoodie, you could easily use any long-sleeved shirt to pattern the sleeves after, and for the hood you can use this pattern:
This was just a quick Paint Shop trace job from the photo of the pattern that I used for my hood, so you'll probably have to play around with resizing it to get it to print out the proper size on your printer.  When you cut it out you'll probably also want to smooth out the lines where it's a little bit wavy from my poor hand-eye coordination.
Hope that helps!

2  Good-bye Safeway, hello birdie grocery bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by astrea on: April 05, 2005 10:47:30 PM
I had this canvas grocery bag that I got for free from a garage sale, and it had been lying around my apartment forever, just waiting for the proper modifications.  This weekend I finally made it to <a href="http://www.scrapaction.org/">SCRAP</a>, where I found this weird fabric for around 25 cents.  Much cutting and applique ensued.


Obviously it's not perfect, but this was my first time doing such a thing, and the fuck-ups are part of the charm, right?  Right. I'm hoping that the fact that it's no longer covered in corporate advertisements will help me remember to actually bring it when I go grocery shopping.

Sometimes cats get too curious and must be taught a lesson.

I'll let Delicious speak for herself on this matter:

that totally reminds me of the Nyan Nyan Nyanko characters by San-X...cute lil Japanese catoons kitties that dress up like food...more info (and cute pictures!) here:
Someone else suggested to me, too, and you're both totally right.  It got me thinking that maybe I should do a whole series...sushicat, anyone?

heh it looks like shes plotting her revenge while sitting there...if you had another cat you could make a hamburger..or an ear of corn..ooh yeah!!! i love it..i actually told my mom to take a look and she loved it too
I do have another cat, but she really would murder me if I tried anything of this sort with her. Glad you liked it :-)

4  Delicious little hotdog...cat? in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by astrea on: January 19, 2005 01:03:54 PM
This is my boyfriend's kitten, Delicious (that was the only alternative to the first name he picked out, "Ugly").  He's an art student, and for a project, he wanted to put her in a food costume, at which point we both thought of a hotdog, and I remembered seeing this thread awhile ago:

So with a few modifications, we made her costume. 

I added batting to the inside of the pieces to make them puffy, but this decreased the costume's coverage, so if I were doing it again I'd make the individual pieces larger.  And of course, we topped it off with the pickle hat. 

She looks more hot-doggerly when she's walking around and not squishing the costume, but she looked so sad that I didn't want to further break her spirit by making her get up.  Actually, I don't think she minded that much; she's a very permissive cat.  She hasn't tried to take her revenge...yet.

5  Ruffly pillowcase skirt and matching purse in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by astrea on: June 15, 2004 12:49:51 PM
Hi, I've been enjoying this board from afar for awhile now, but I just finally registered today and this is my first post here.  I felt compelled to show off one of my latest projects, a lovely little pillowcase skirt.  Having made your typical sack-with-a-drawstring type pillowcase skirts before, I got a bit more ambitious with this one and added a zipper, some lace, and a ruffle.  Except for the thread, every bit of this skirt is thrifted: 

Yeah, I know it's short, but well, that's how I like it.

It was an extra large pillowcase, so I had enough fabric left over to make a matching purse.  The outside is a thrifted sweater that I felted:

Perhaps I would be better off posting this question on the purse board, but does anyone have any tips for putting a zipper in a lined purse?  This is the first time I've done it, and I had a difficult time with it.

Thanks for your help!
