1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Blanket for a product of two powerlifters on: June 27, 2014 10:11:41 AM
I made this blanket for a pregnant friend. Her and her husband are power lifters and the are having a boy. I thought it would be a unique idea.
2  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Awesome Drawing Case from old VHS box!!! on: December 04, 2011 10:26:52 PM
Found this VHS box at Goodwill. My husband's brother's girlfriend's daughter loves to draw! I decided to make her her own drawing case fit for a young artist! I love it and am a bit jealous  Tongue

I basically just stripped it to the basics and rebuilt it. My sewing machine didn't really enjoy the cardboard, thus resulting in sub-par stitches, but she's 8 and probably won't care. Hope you enjoy it!



  Tada! After!

3  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / "Fanny Packin' Heat!" on: December 19, 2009 07:39:22 PM
I came across a tutorial on Threadbangers for an awesome fanny pack (Fanny Packin' Heat as they called it Cheesy)! And being the dork that I am proud of being, I could not resist making one for myself! I am no where near an expert seamstress, but this project seemed simple enough. So, I ripped apart this $3 backpack I found at Wal-Mart,

and went through a couple sewing machine needles and a band-aid or two, but I am victorious! And the result is this rockin' fanny pack!

4  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / A scarf without the bulk on: December 19, 2009 07:30:50 PM
I have seen many of these lovely "scarfettes" on a few different websites. I am not sure what they are called. Perhaps a button up cowl? Doesn't matter...Well, I finally made one for myself! And I love it!

Apologies for the cruddy webcam picture :oP
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / ugly XL thrift shoppe polo=killer skirt!!! on: July 05, 2009 08:42:10 PM
Found this shirt at a thrift shop in my college town. Not a flattering shirt, but an awesome skirt. Zipper was a bit difficult. The fabric kept running like pantyhose do. Looks okay though.

Here's the shirt before. I forgot to take a picture before I did anything, so this is after I made the first cut through the middle.

And this is the final project. Sorry 'bout the shower background!

Now, all I have to do is make a shirt to match!  Grin
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / 10 lbs less dress!!! (my first alteration) on: September 14, 2008 07:39:38 PM
i have always been a health nut but since i started working on my master's a couple years ago, i didn't have time to keep myself in shape or the money to buy healthy foods. i got fed up with feeling unhealthy and put my nose to the grind stone and lost 10 lbs! i bought this dress before the weightloss and now it's WAY too baggy and saggy. so i decided to make it a little more sexy to give myself back the confidence i use to have. here is the before...

and now the after!!! (my favorite part!!!)

and a side shot just to show off a little  Grin

sorry about the messy messy room!
7  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / hooded tank overcomes doubts on: September 14, 2008 07:22:16 PM
I told my boyfriend about what I wanted to do with a plain black tee i had sitting around.
he said, "A tank top with a hood?" and made a face resembling -> Undecided
o yee of little faith! i took another tee that was WAY too small but had an awesome superman logo on it and came up with this comfy tank...

here's a closeup of the logo that i sewed to the hip...

and finally, the shirt in all its grand glory!

thanks for looking, i hope you liked it!
8  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / ipod cozy [tiny bit gruesome and IMG heavy] on: January 18, 2008 08:22:34 PM
i got a little tired of my ipod getting beat up at the bottom of my purse, so i made it a cozy, with an earphone pocket! i saw the cloth on etsy and fell in love with it. it is a bit sadistic. the fabric has different scenes of a rabbit causing trouble/pain for the raccoon. this one is my favorite. the rabbit set the raccoon on fire!!! enjoy!

9  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / plain pillow sham-->pencil skirt on: January 18, 2008 08:05:45 PM
i've been stuck in my house bored out of my mind waiting for the semester to start. so, my boredom birthed this skirt.

this is it's original form...

and the finished product...

sorry about the skin!

now all i have to do is wait for spring to come rolling in!
10  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / 1st knitting project! YAY! on: January 18, 2008 07:57:37 PM
over christmas break i taught myself how to knit. and this is my first completed project!!! it's rather plain but since it's made out of wool, it's super thick and warm. perfect for the frigid weather of a wisconsin winter!
