1  D.A.R.E. to be awesome!!!!!! in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by tekalinosky54 on: July 16, 2007 10:22:45 AM
hi guys! this is my first ever recon but here is the story!  So when we graduated dare we got huge shirts so that no one would feel bad or anything.  We had to wear them the next day. me being one of the shorter kids well the shirt went down to my knees.. eww plus well here i will just show the picture.

so a week or two ago i realized how long it had been sitting in my pajama drawer (sp?)  so i wanted to make a shirt... or dress. so this is what i came up with.. with the help of two other white shirts.

SO then i wanted a cool back and this is what i came up with!

The straps are a little tight on the shoulders and unless i hold my hands up in the air they stay tight and make the top of the dress pull under my armpits. 

comments and criticisms are welcome and are greatly appreciated!  oh i used patterns and ideas from www.whatthecraft.com i used the tube top and then added the side panels because i cut the top really small be accident and then i used the circle skirt variation 1

2  paper clips= deliciuosness(???????) in CHALLENGE 19 ENTRIES by tekalinosky54 on: July 02, 2007 04:56:43 PM
ok so one day i decided hey why not take a crack at doing this challenge?  well i thought ooooooooo ahhhhhhhhh sparkles, silver wire, dangles, yay! hooray for prettyness!  BUt then when i went to the store that i knew had the right beads, they had moved!!!! (oh the horror!)

  So then on the ride back to my house with my brother we passed a staples, and i said "well i could try something with paperclips" (i was joking). then he was asking questions about the challenge and craftster and (after me saying a lot of craftster is revamping, recylcing and reconing plus using things in different fashions than intended) said "recycle! oh well, we just passed staples, do the paperclip idea". i said "well..... um... sure?!?!?!?!". I had no idea what i had gotten myself into........

 I went in alone, with like fourteen dollars and a wierd sense that my ideas were going to be thwarted and i would have wasted 14 dollars.  well i walked out with a pack of 1000 paperclips, cool colors by the way, and a pack of 5 rolls of electrical tape, red, blue, green, yellow, and white.

  so after maybe only three or four hours, all in front of the tv and some realy hard glue of paperclips on the base i cam up with this!

the annoying paperclips on the base took me like 7-10 minutes each or something.... i like the way they look though

ACTION SHOT!!!!!!! ACTION SHOT!!!!!!! ACTION SHOT!!!!!!turn your computer... or your head

i hope you like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i worked hard and this is my first craftster worthy post ever!

By the way (sorry i forgot to add this earlier!) I am the queen of spontaneity (and reusing things in wierd ways!)!
