11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Threads Magazine shrug on: September 26, 2005 05:29:26 PM
I finally remembered to get the Threads magazine from the library so I could remember the measurements of the shrug.  I did the ballet shrug, not the kimono or bat wing.  I like it.  It was worth 20 cents of photo copies.  This was just some fabric I had laying around.  It doesn't take much.  And it only took about a half hour, from cutting to the final seam.  Smiley

12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / purses for planned parenthood auction, img heavy on: September 08, 2005 07:06:07 PM
I made these for a planned parenthood silent auction/fund raiser.  I'm happy with how they came out.  They were made with materials I had laying around the house (except for the planned parenthood t-shirts that planned parenthood donated to me to make the purses).  I hope they get a decent amount of money for the organization.  The one with the black plastic handles is gathered slightly, but you still can see the writing just fine.  Both of these purses are reverseable, because you don't always want to announce your politics to the world!  Smiley

medium sized purse with black plastic handles and handmade flower (which you can't see).  The fabric is a boucle type fabric with browns and purples:

large purse.  Its filled with books for the picture - Its not nearly so stiff, which is good!  This one has hot pink zig zag top stitching on the white side.

A long time ago, I made these for the march in dc, which is why planned parenthood asked me to do the above purses:
13  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / vegetarian magazines? on: July 22, 2005 12:07:23 PM
I'm posting this here because its more food related - I didn't want to ask in magazine reviews.  Let me know if I need to move it.

I'm looking for vegetarian cooking magazine.  I already get veggie life and I just let my vegetarian times run out because i wasn't thrilled with the recipes.  I've seen vegnews and herbivore, but I'm really interested in vegetarian recipes, not news and politics. 
14  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / Mimosa Top on: May 01, 2005 05:42:42 PM
I'm really happy how this came out.  I love the fact that you can wear it in two ways, asymetrical or normal.  You can't see in the picture, but the band is a seperate piece from the top, which looks real nice in person.

15  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / kimono/jacket/robe on: April 24, 2005 05:24:28 PM
I made this Kimono this weekend,

Its a basic styling from my Simplicity's Simply the Best Sewing Book.  I tried to do the tie a little different... I made the under layer from the same fabric as the kimono, large and gathered like a cumberbund, and then I added a contrasting tie (from some fabric I had laying around) with a light color on one side and a dark on the the other.  There is just enough to wrap around twice for a little visual appeal.

Not bad for $7.00.  Smiley

My friend is working on a project.  He is looking for pictures of your shoes to collage together in a video. 
Here are two links:

and a quick statement:
Baltimore artist, Steven H. Silberg, is looking for participation in his most recent project, "A Mile in Another's Shoes." Silberg would like to connect with 5280 people each sending him a photograph of one pair of shoes for inclusion in this work. So choose your best shoes, your worst shoes, your favorite shoes, or your most beat up shoes take a picture. Digital and traditional photographs accepted.

17  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / One piece shrug from Family Circle Easy Knitting on: April 04, 2005 07:53:24 PM
I made this shrug (#8) from the spring/summer 2005 issue of Family Circle Easy Knitting.  I used some Berrocco Glace I had laying around, but the pattern called for Caron Jewel Box, so my gauge was very different.  I had to adjust accordingly.  It didn't take too long to figure out the difference.  It was really easy to do.  Its knit in one piece from the edge of one sleeve to the edge of the other.  It has five rows of stockinette and then five rows of reverse stockinetter - very easy.  The pattern shows up much more in real life and looks like thick ribbing.  MInimal finishing - my favorite!  This issue had lots of great shrugs and capelets in it.

18  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Long Sleeve Sweater to Short Sleeve Sweater - tutorial on: March 14, 2005 09:21:38 AM
Another piece I was going to give away but decided to fool around with first.  This was just an inexpensive wool seater from old navy.  Thought I'd adapt it for spring.

First, I cut about an inch (or more) above the rib cuff and at about the elbow

Pin the cuff, inside out, to the RIGHT side of the cut sleeve.  Match up the cut ends.

Sew seam right at the edge of the rib cuff, leaving about an inch (or more) of seam allowance.  Sew next to straight stitch with a zig zag stitch.  Trim seam allowance, cutting close to zig zag stitch.  Finish with bias binding, with a zig zag stitch, to keep the sweater from unraveling.

Turn seam up towards shoulder.


19  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Shrug from old shirt on: March 11, 2005 05:35:52 PM
Here's my shrug.  I made mine to go above my chest.  This is an old shirt that I never wore, so I thought before giving it away, I'd try this shrug thing once on an old cast off.  Smiley  I used single fold bias tape to finish the piece.  I'm pretty sure I saw the instructions on the tshirt surgery community on LiveJournal.

I tried to darken the flash... Hope it doesn't distort the photos too much.
20  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / decorated sweater with lace on: March 09, 2005 05:44:22 AM
Hope I have this in the right board.  I was going to give this sweater to goodwill because I never wear it.  But then I found this lace for 35 cents a yd at my local fabric store.  I loved the color, so I bought a bunch and hand sewed it on my sweater.  I also added this wire patch I had bought a few months ago.  Just trying to spice it up a little.  I can't decide if it looks like I'm the hall monitor or Ms. America with a little junk in her trunk.  Wink  Either way, I like it.
