21  simple black and grey scarf. in Crochet: Completed Projects by Rebeccalynnis on: July 21, 2008 08:27:38 AM
i'm glad this scarf actually turned out decent!
i'm no pro with crochet, as i learned the basic stitch about a year ago, so i'm still practicing getting all my stitches to be equal right now.
and i think i did a pretty good job on this one!

it's about 1.8 meters long, and about 7 centimeters wide. and it's got little fringies on the end that you can't see in the photos.
it's made with some old orlon acrylic stuff that my mum has been holding onto for years.
she says it needs to be blocked, since it's all twisty at the ends, but i'm not quite sure how to go about it.

thanks for looking!  Cheesy
and and suggestions or tips on how to get rid of the twisty-ness would be greatly appreciated!

22  making a mess with paints, jeans, and tee's. in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rebeccalynnis on: July 09, 2008 06:33:27 PM

recon no. one is actually a double recon. first, i turned a pair of old holey jeans into a skirt the day before i left for spring break vacation a million years ago. never posted them, mostly because i thought they weren't post worthy.
but now, i certainly do believe they are! (pics are clickable) oh, and the pants in the photo aren't the actual "before" pants, but they're the exact same kind as the ones that i reconed.

duct tape and fabric spray paint are my friend.
(yay molly! https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=256148.0 (we did all this together today))

this is a shirt i never wore before, but i'm sure i will now! ...even though it is insanely tight on me.
hopefully it'll stretch out after a while? (top photo is more real color)

and this i love. i've just come to realize that the front, though completely unintentional, looks like a bunch of little bunnies. does any one else see that, or are my mum and i completely crazy?   Tongue

thanks for looking!  Cheesy

23  simple dress to skirt... and maybe cardigan/jacket? in Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by Rebeccalynnis on: July 06, 2008 06:34:26 PM
a normal friday afternoon spent goodwillin', and i found myself a hideous frilly polkadotted dress.
i don't know what in the world may have caused me to buy the thing, but i did. and then had no clue what to do with it.
so i did the easiest thing possible: cut off the bottom, remove the frills, and add some elastic to the waist.
(and serge the frillies, tie around thy head, and BAM! new headband. ^_^ )

(i don't know why the hem looks so crooked... i'm sure it's really not)

but now i have this whole top part left. and while i do think it's rather cute as is, a few of my loved ones says it's ridiculous and not age appropriate (and that it looks like something great aunt bertha would wear)

any opinions or ideas?

thanks for looking! =D

ooh. kiwiblue has a good question. i'm bummed that i never entered the macro challenge. i wish i had.

iwannamessupmysheetsw_you: i love all of yours, especially the last two. they are gorgeous!

and those flowers are so beautiful, anwylaeth!

okay, alright, i know i posted a few photos not too long ago, but here are some that i took last night, and i'd just like some feedback. they're different, and just something new for me.

25  interchangable glass pebble ring. in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: June 27, 2008 12:24:20 PM
being the bargain hunter i am, i ALWAYS check the clearance at every store i go into. most times i find myself buying things not because i need them, but just because they were an amazing deal. that's what happened here. i found a bag of those flat glass marble things for a quarter, and a huge thing of thick blue copper wire for fifty cents. well, the other day i finally found something to use them for!

i just wrapped the wire around my finger a bit, and then twirled it around a pebble on top my finger. just make sure the wire is wrapped around the stone enough that it wont slip out. i did quite a bit of trial and error and flapping my hand around wildly just to make sure i'd never lose the stone. i bet i looked ridiculous while doing this. Cheesy i'm sure if anyone saw me they'd think i was making a wicked attempt to fly or something of the sort.

what do you think? comments and criticism is certainly welcome!
thanks for looking!

26  purses and pouches. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: June 27, 2008 09:31:56 AM
it's been quite a while since i've posted anything, and mostly that's because i didn't have a camera. i sure have been busy though, because i didn't have a job. my mum just got a new camera yesterday, so i've got lots to show. and bear with me, i'm not too much of a pro with this camera yet, but i think the pictures are decent, just a little grainy.

bag no. one: made of shiny lavender-ish upholstery fabric, lined with cadet blue cotton, and four re-purposed brass/metal rings from an old purse. simple, no pockets, but nice and roomy, and very sturdy. (please ignore my fresh-out-of-shower-not-even-finger-combed hair.)

no. two: same style, but only two pleats on a side, and one brass ring. made of thick blue ?cotton? woven fabric, with blue polkadot cotton lining. also no pockets.

bag no. three: an experiment. i took a long leather strap from an old purse, and cut it in two. the purse itself is just a square bag with for loop/tabs on each side, where the straps a threaded through. for now they're just knotted, but i will find a way to permanently fasten them. i'm not too sure how much i like this one. but i guess it turned out pretty nicely.

bag no. four: i love this thing! it's just a little makeup/whatever bag, i made for the convenience of switching purses so frequently. just my way of keeping everything together and semi-organized. it's just a plain zippered pouch, with amazing printed fabric. it's just lined with this stuff my mum calls muslin. i don't know what it's for but i just used it because it was there. i had to hand stitch the zipper in, since my sewing maching was spazzing on me.  i also added a loop so i could use it as a wristlet too.

and bag no. five: a little plaid handbag, with lots of pleats. this one was also a tester/practice bag. that turned out pretty nicely. lined with some purple woven fabric.

and again, i apologize with the photos. the camera itself is amazing quality, but i'm just getting used to all the features.

comments and criticism is, as always, welcomed and greatly appreciated!
thanks for looking!

... i LOVEEEE your photos! you have a knack for photography! they are really, really neat.

well, the story is... i've freaked quite a few times recently because i need to get a portfolio going for college, and i right now my mum's camera is being shipped somewhere to be fixed. well, last night she noticed how stressed i was, and just bought a camera on a whim for me! (okay, okay, she says it's HERS, but she knows i'm the one that's gonna use it a whole ton) it's a canon powershot, and i've only had it a few hours, but it's amazing! blah blah blah, end rambling, start with photos... i'm no pro, but i try my best.

this is me adoring the macro capabilities:


and this is me just adoring the thing in general. the photo is just so soft looking!


and this is me trying to edit with picnik. which turns out i'm not as pleased with as photobucket's editor, though picnik is MUCH faster.


thanks for taking a peek!

28  many new wallets and a loverly purse. in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: April 29, 2008 03:55:41 PM
alrighty! lots of photos!  Cheesy

i was planning for this to be a "practice purse" at it's best. i wasn't so sure about the shape of it, since it's not what i usually fancy. turns out, i really really like it!
i saw ScrappySue's "can't think of a clever name" bag, and decided to try her (wonderful!) tutorial.
i tweaked a few things, like the pleats, and added a little button and tab.

i LOVE that button!

and now... my wallets!
 i am addicted to making them! i just wanted something smaller and easier to deal with than my old one with the fussy zipper. they fold in half, and fasten with ribbon and buttons. one side has four credit/ID card slots, and the other has two deep pockets,, for money and change.

they were super easy to make. it's all just one long 13-ish cm wide piece of fabric, folded multiple times, and then sewed up the sides. they're just like pringles! once you pop, you just can't stop! i love these things to death.

and they're nice and small. 10 x 8 cm.

what do you think? comments, criticism, questions all welcomed and appreciated!
and thanks for looking!  Cheesy

oh man! my parents went to jamaica a few months ago, and i was bummed i couldn't go. it's so gorgeous there! your photo is great.

well, here's a few shots i took while on spring break last week. nothing amazing, but i like 'em.

lake mead, by the hoover dam. (yeah, i cheated and unsaturated it a bit. i think it looks neater this way.)

mile trail in zion national park.

driving down the vegas strip. my camera spazzed but i think the photo is wicked.

and this was my attempt at big baby blue eyes about a month ago, when photo bucket released their fotoflexer thing. i just greyscaled everything except the iris of his eyes.

man, i just love my nephew!

30  checkered star tote bag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by Rebeccalynnis on: March 30, 2008 10:56:50 AM
this is a bag i made, and i love it completely. 1st, i reconstructed a tote from an old tee, and loved it, but decided it was a bit small for all my books and folders. ( https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=229487 )
this one is much, much and roomier, though not as sturdy, but i'll work on that...

so photos!

that's supposed to be like a beveled star on the front, but it's kinda hard to see from far away or when it's really bright out. i'm working on fixing that, but i haven't really figured out yet.

my first zippered pocket!!

my friend helping with a superwoman action shot.

detail shot.

another detail shot , and the coolest pin ever.
