921  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: Man sized T into little me sized T! (pics) on: May 09, 2007 05:38:08 PM
Sounds like you're on the right track.  A tip for the sleeves: when I'm re-szing a really large shirt into a much smaller one, I cut out the sleeve, cut the shoulder to the appropiate length, then stich the sleeves back in there.  It's not too hard once you try it a few times.  That way, you don't have the should seam end up half-way down your arm, as I learned the hard way.
Good job!  Re-doing t-shirts is a great way to learn sewing.

Very cute!  Halters don't usually work well on me, but maybe I can do something like this with straps, ie sleeveless.

Love it!  The skirt is definitly an improvement over the top.  And nice decor!
924  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Sunglasses holder on: May 09, 2007 04:27:36 PM
I got a lovely new pair of sunglasses a few weeks ago, but alas, they did not fit in any of my sunglasses cases.  Being too thrifty to go out and buy one, I decided to kniw one.  Basically it's two rectangles of stockinette knit sewn together, but you could use garter or seed stitch or anything else too.  I chose to have two layers so it would be a bit thicker and protect the lens from scratches.


925  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Orange you glad... that I love blueberries on: May 09, 2007 04:19:44 PM
So, I loved the Orange You Glad bag, but I live in Florida.  The only people that have oranges on their purses are primarily tourists.  And I never wear orange.  So I decided I would revamp the purse with blues and a blueberry.  I also changed up the strips on the strap, and made the strap longer.  I put in some snap closures after the photo was taken to keep it closed.  To make the blueberry star (I'm not sure what you would call it) this is roughly the pattern:
chain 3, sl st into first loop.  2 sl sts in each back loop (6sts)
2 sl st in each back loop (12 sts)
then I tried to be random, but for each of the points I would ch 3, dc in same st, hdc in nxt st, sl st in same st.  I varied it a bit with each one, so that it would look more organic and natural.
Hope you like it! (This is my first post!)
