2  Boring Gray Dress Pants into cute little cropped ones in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sterlinggurl on: September 15, 2007 09:33:46 PM
I haven't posted in a while... But I have a TON of boring and/ or too big clothes I wanted to re-do into reconstructed pieces....

I turned these pants in cropped pants and then used part of the cuff to make loops on the inside so they would ruche and then added  black satin ribbon to make bows on the sides......Turned out O.K. I think

Thanks for Looking!

4  Liz Claiborne Tweed Pants made into MY " Infinity" Design Bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by sterlinggurl on: April 01, 2007 02:31:28 PM
I had an old pair of pants that don't fit my " curvy body" anymore... BUT I love tweed,.... so I made it into my first attempt at a handbag.I got the " infinity" idea from my mom who uses the symbol as a life guide.....

It was very easy since the pants were lined already so i had a lining almost already made.....I used the left over pants leg cut into strips for the " Infinity" rings for the handles and used Grey vinyl for the strap attachment.... Let me know what ya think... Comments and critiques welcome....

My best friend's little boy turned 4 this month... so his "Auntie" decided to make him a totebag for pre-school using his fav color Green and His fav things Dinosaurs and Trucks.... This was my first attempt to  TRULY sew something....let along a tote bag....I used a tute from another site...(Gasp).. and Hubby cut out free-form letters and Dinos and Trucks....I put them on with spray adhesive...(used a bit too much= some of the "greasy stains")... and then applied puffy paint for the finishing touches...

 Let me know what ya think... comments and critiques are welcome.... Thanx for looking...
