1  Revamped Lamp Shade Turned Into Lace Chandelier in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by cokiethebaby on: January 18, 2012 11:39:26 PM
The white one is a lamp shade i covered with venise(or venice i've it both ways so not sure which one) lace, its hanging over the light fixture with ribbon,, i wanted it to hang it lower, but then you could see the light

The black one is just the lamp shade metal rings. i added extra rings made from wire coat hangers and connected those with jewelry wire, theres no light in this one, its just for looks

5  pinup bathing suit in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by cokiethebaby on: June 17, 2010 06:23:23 AM
i finished my ruched bathing suit, this was my first bathing suit using poly lycra, and it wasn't really bad sewing like i thought it would be,,it was going to be a tankini but then i just sewed at the bottom of the top to the leg bottoms, it's supposed to look like this one from pinupgirlclothing:


i think it's pretty close considering the price of that one, compared to just a yard of lycra fabric, i used a princess cut pattern.
heres my suit:

8  Re: ideas on altering a small shirt to larger size in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by cokiethebaby on: November 21, 2008 01:49:30 PM
sorry i haven't checked my replies on here,,,i can't remember who posted some pics of their shirts on here or my search words,,,but i am looking for them for ya,,,what i did was cut my smaller shirt down the sides (for shirts from the armhole all the way to the bottom,,,i haven't done any long sleeved shirts,,maybe for those cut from the underarm on down) and just roughly measured how big of a strip of other material to use,,,i cut up some contrasting old t-shirt material,,, i sew the ends folded or "hemmed" ,,,,,then i sewed the whole  strip on my shirt from bottom up,,,,that way if my strip was to long and needed to be hemmed again it didn't matter if it matched up with the edge of the shirt cause it's under my arm,,, no one will know Grin,,,here is a photo of one of mine,,,,,hope it helps
