2  sherbert inspired tank, round two! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lauren marie on: August 12, 2007 02:49:10 PM
I made one like this before, it was green and stuff. Well, there was alot of extra fabric and my boyfriend called it the maternity tank.. im not pregnant but it was pretty puffy. Then i told him that i made it, and he felt pretty bad. But hey, atleast i reached store quality! Well here is a less puffy and more orange version. comments are appreciated!!

4  a cute cube thing... in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lauren marie on: August 12, 2007 02:36:45 PM
On my way home from baby sitting, i saw this cube like wooden box on the side of the road. ive been looking for a little table for my room, so this seemed perfect, just a little boring. So i painted it up. Unfortunately, I had bever worked with oil paints before, and most of what my dad gave me was oil paint, but i didnt know it... i made a huge mess! I havent finished yet, because there is a white blank side and im gonna put my self portrait there.
So here she is.

^ my favorite side^

So anyways comments? Questions?

6  button bracelets [img chunky] in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by lauren marie on: August 12, 2007 02:19:25 PM
buttons and beading wire. the first was an experiment and the seccond actually has a clasp that im pretty proud of. the wat i did it was i put the end of the wire through a circle like crimping bead, and put a smaller crimping bead inside. so it was kinda the same as tieing a know at the end of a necklace. i cant even explain it.

Also, this is a chopped up duct tape tube.

8  tiny+large=cute? Adorable Sundress [img chunky] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lauren marie on: August 12, 2007 02:03:56 PM
Ok so i found this skirt from a few years ago in my closet. It didnt fit me then, and doesnt fit me well now. It's like a granny skirt, it comes up so high! But i loved the fabric and was determined to save it. At a craft fair/yard sale me and my friend beth both got these tiny girl shirts as a joke. They are both size 7/8. So here was my deliemma:

Not to mention how long the skirt was...not so trendy anymore.
So i decided to do this:

Heres a close up of the fabric:

I havent actually sewn the two together yet, but when i do i will add straps. And repost, of course ;]
thanks for looking, and sorry for poor picture quality.

9  Royal, Purple, half top [img chunky] in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by lauren marie on: August 12, 2007 01:58:38 PM
Even though purple isnt my color, i couldnt resist this top. I was at my local thrift store, looking for things to recon in the kids department, and i found this uglyu purple sweater. It had this weird huge 80's fringe, which would undoubtedly make its wearer look like a deformed mermaid. I kinda liked its odity and tried it on, to use as a half shirt. I looked ridiculous with that weird fringe, but i like the puffed sleaves and non-functioning buttons, so i got it anyway. I took off the fringe, hemmed it and took it in some. the picture you see here is not sewn yet, only pinned the way it will turn out. comments are muchhhh appreciated! thanks for looking!!

10  first ever adorable (and wearable) TANK! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by lauren marie on: July 06, 2007 06:48:10 PM
This tank was inspired by Sherbert's tanks... alot of you have proably seen them, as they were in like "the hottest new craft" thinger for a while.  Anyway, i dont think she posted a tut, but there was a similar tank with one, so i used that and just added the bottom.
At first, i just thought the t shirt material (yellow) was being a "female dog" to sew with, but then i realized it was just my crappy old sewing machine. Actually it was my moms. So we got like a brand new hand-me-down sewing machine a while ago, and i thought id try it.... and it worked like a dream!! It was a jamsung, i think... if im even spelling that right. Anyway i really love the way it turned out! Without further adue, (sp?) here it is!!

And the folowing pictures my little SIX YEAR OLD brother took... he is quite good, no?

And here's me with my little brother. My sister chopped his head off. Oh yeah, i give her credit for all the other pictures;]

umm.  I looove comments! thanks for looking everyone!!
ps the skinny jeans i also sewed, they were a recon for flares. I didnt make the tut but if anyone is interested, there is a tute for them in the recon tut list.
