1  Re: No-Sew halter top anyone?! in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by Born2BMe293 on: August 23, 2004 07:14:52 PM
ok here goes....
i tried to do this w/out actually cutting up my tee cuz i have cut up endless amounts of sleepshirts exerementing and have about a zillion in this cut up style...but if this is still confusing just let me know and i'll steal one of my brothers undershirts and actually do it for ya!  Wink
mine is tied in the lower back because it was way too big, but if u have a shirt that fits right already you can leave that step out. i didnt explain how to do it here but lemme know if u need to  Smiley

the front:

the back:

cut on the black lines...the red arrows are showing that you need to continue cutting to the back of the shirt.

its easier to do the horizontal cut along the back of the shirt if you first cut off the sleeves of the tee at the seam, so it looks like a muscle shirt. then, line up the side seams of the shirt and just cut straight across. the piece is still attached to the shirt from the neck area tho. use that to make the tie around ur neck.

well, i hope i made sense...im not sure. i dont think i did a very good job of explaining w/ out real pictures. u might wanna try it on a shirt you dont care about first to make sure that my instructions were correct. You also have to make sure that the shirt you are using wont fray after you cut it. shirts they give away at parties, school, and charity stuff are what i use. I used shirts from camp, Relay for Life, Walk for the cure, and dance.  Smiley
hope i helped! feel free to speak up if something doesnt make sense or u need help. Good luck!! Cheesy

2  lots of necklaces w/ lotz of pics :) in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Born2BMe293 on: August 16, 2004 07:06:24 PM
ive was wearing one of those cut up piece of hose chokers and decided that it needed something new. I put a charm on it and my friends started asking for them. Smiley then they're friends did too. Smiley Smiley Then i thought maybe i might be onto a product to sell at craft fair w/ my other stuff. They are super easy to make and really cheap to make too. What do u think? I really want ur opinion on whether these would sell or not...i was thinking around $2-3 a pop.
meet my manequin head... i think she needs a name...

this ones a flower, its just blurry. I made it about 5 months ago and i never take it off and its still alive and well!! Smiley

ps- my necks not really that long...its just the picture. hehe

3  ribbon flower (w/ tute and pics) :) in Discussion and Questions by Born2BMe293 on: July 22, 2004 02:36:50 PM
This is the tutorial for a flower similar to the $20 belt for less.  Smiley
Mine is made w/ crepe paper because i didnt have any ribbon the right width.

The finished flower:

Start w/ ribbon, it has to be pretty long, i didnt measure. You could make the flower as full or as small as u want so its up to you.Then begin scrunching it up into a small circle:

COntinue to do this, w/ the circles getting bigger and bigger and wrapping around eachother, like a spiral:

The finished flower:

to finish it you could tape up the bottom or handsew a few stitches through it. You could probably use a wired ribbon, pull the wire out of one side, and scrunch the other side up by pulling on the wire a bit. Attatch it to the belt w/e way you want! Sorry its not a very clear tutorial! I can do a finished one if anyone wants, but i havent yet. Hope its helpful.
