3  Recycled fabric cuffs - quilted, Bedazzled, and corsetified. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rebeccalynnis on: August 18, 2010 03:05:11 PM
I've been making a bunch of things these past two weeks while my boyfriend is on the other side of the state working.
Here's a few cuff bracelets I made.

This first one was inspired by a threadbanger video I saw a long time ago... Just a bunch of left over scrap fabrics "quilted' together. wood beads are recycled from an old broken belt.

These were made mostly just for practice. Grandma gave me all her old grommet thingies... And even though we don't have the machine or any of the correct tools, I was determined to figure a way to use them. And my other grandma gave me a Bedazzler. lol Thses are both made with recycled and failed tie-dyed jeans.

The suede strip is also recycled from an old belt.

4  Couple o' shirts - Including my first corset! in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: August 18, 2010 12:27:38 PM
I've almost reached insanity! My boyfriend has been working hard on the other side of the state for a few weeks, And I've been so bored and lonely without him. the first couple of days were pretty bad.. I became lazy and watched doctor who all day... accompanied by a gallon of icecream and chocolate.
Well, The wonderful beau came back for an evening to surprise me, And I felt so bad that he was working hard painting and I was just being a lazy mope. So the past few days or so I've been working on a few new outfits (now that he's making a little extra cash we can actually go out... and now I have a reason to get dressed up! lol)

I received a giant bottle of grommet thingies from my grandma a few weeks  back, so i decided it's finally time for me to take a stab at making a corset ( my SO Loves them on me (: )
I'm not entire pleased with the outcome. I need more practice at getting the right shapes an measurements, but I'll get it eventually.
The wrinkles by the hips aren't usually there, but I'm all bloated and yucky right now, it's not fitting like it usually would any other time of the month. lol

And a flowy flowery shirt to take on vacation next week! (: This was pretty easy to make. I took a giant rectangle, folded it in half, sewed up the side halfway (the open part is the arm part) Cut the teardrop out for the neck, and added and simple waistband. Only took like 15 min to cut and make.

Thanks for looking!
Comments and criticism are greatly appreciated! (:
Have a nice day/evening!

5  Re: Hot pink flowery Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: July 29, 2010 09:12:17 AM
Thanks! I can't wait to see the rest of the fabric she picked up!  Cheesy

I made a little matching coin purse today. I think it's so cute! I still have troubles with zippers, but I think this one worked out nicely.

I noticed the color is a little washed out in these photos, the hot pink is REALLY bright.

6  Hot pink flowery Purse in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: July 28, 2010 09:23:10 PM
First note - Craigslist FTW!  Grin
My aunt called me up a few days ago and told me she had some scrap fabric that I might like... "Some" was more like "An entire TRUCK full" of fabric. This was heaven on earth for me! golly gee, there were piles upon piles up to the ceiling of left over fabric. And She got for -get this- FREE on craigslist. And what I saw wasn't even half of it. She stuffed her van full, and still has to make another trip to pick the rest up! Anyways, I pulled out a small stack of fabric, and immediately went home to make this purse. I owe a friend a purse, and i thought this fabric would suit her perfectly. Too bright and girly for me anyways.  Wink

alright, i'll just get on to a few photos and stop rambling about my excitement in all this free fabric.

By happy accident the flowers on the straps line up almost perfectly!

IT was a pretty easy sew, I did it all - cutting, measuring, sewing and ironing- in about 2 1/2 hours. II made a few purses like this before ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=254005.0 ) and I've pretty much got the hang of it. no patterns, just eyeballing it.

And as always, I'd really love to hear some feedback, and definitely critiques.  Thanks for taking a peek at my new purse.  Cheesy

7  Re: Show Off Your Hair--Dyed, Cut, or Styled by Yourself! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by Rebeccalynnis on: July 20, 2010 02:01:59 PM
Unfortunately I do not have any good photos of my favourite cut sdone by me - My highschool mohawk. Sad But here'es a few of my hairstyles over the past few years. I've been styling my hair all myself since i was 13. I haven't dare out to dye it yet... still building the courage. I really love my natural color.

I had loooong hair down to my rear until middle school. Cut it into this chin length thing. was really cute, until my hair started to grow funny curls and became to hard to manage.
This is where is started to give up. To curly and messy.

Then I had to show my hair who was boss. MOHAWK. (I can't find any photos of it up - I only did it for concerts, and that was maybe once or twice a month. Sad yes, I am piging out on ramen noodles. lol.

a couple months after mohawk - sides growing back in. Personally i thought this was really cute.

then last winter I  cut it ALL off short. it was an inch long from root to tip! I always keep the front a bit longer because i have a HUUUGE forhead.
This was my favourite for a while.

I love my hair now. can't wait until it's long enough to pull into a real pony tail. I'm almost there...

I'm growing it out. New years resolution was to not cut it AT ALL. (except trims every three months.)
Within the last two years i don't think i've gone more than two weeks without cutting it. It just kept getting shorter and shorter! lol. I don't have very great photos, but I plan on taking better care of my hair now. It's naturally curly, I gave up the flat iron, and wash it with apple cider vinegar. Smiley

8  Hemp wrapped stone necklaces! finally! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: July 20, 2010 01:05:42 PM
Years ago my father picked a bunch of stones off the Lake Michigan shore and had 'em polished. I remember playing with these treasures when I was younger. I just found them in our basement a couple of days ago, and knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do with them.

I think they are just the coolest looking things ever!

I've been making a lot of hemp knick knacks lately, since michael's 40% off coupons are coming regularly in the mail, and summer sales make it even better.   Getting the knots right were hard at first, but after making a few I've got it pretty down pat. I've made eight of them in the past three days - and have plenty more stones to wrap! lol   Cheesy

What do you think?

9  my first kanzashis! in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rebeccalynnis on: June 25, 2010 09:29:57 AM
Yes, I saw all the cute kanzashis floating around craftster, and just had to try my hand at it. IT took my quite a bit of googling and youtubeing tutorials on how to make the different kinds of petals. and after discovering all the videos were to fuzzy to understand and the text tutes were to confusing, I just fiddled around for a while.

I really like this one. I stole the vintage button from grandmother.
Fabric is salvaged from one of her skirts that ripped.

My first one didn't turn out too well, in my opinion. but the button I found makes it slightly more acceptable.  Wink
The fabric is from and old purse lining.
