For this summer I was selected to be in my school's summer arts festival. I chose to promote clothing reconstruction. I wanted to highlight all the different designs and things one can do with clothing, so I used only old clothing for the project: some I brought from home and some I had donated to me.

A majority of the pieces featured I did over the summer (the ones with 'before and after' pictures) while the others I either completed before the project or I completed during the project.

I also wanted to pay homage to craftster.org and its awesome crafter community, so I decided to have the exhibit be entirely online for everyone to see Smiley


Although I am happy that the exhibit was successful and I really challenged myself in creating these pieces, I am not entirely satisfied with the way the pieces were presented. Not to say I don't like the website idea, I'm totally cool with that, its just that not all the pictures/pieces did not make the website for whatever reason. So, I would like to show the other pieces and more of the others that were limited on the website. I also have a couple of pieces I made after the project was over, anywho enjoy!! and keep on crafting!!!! Cheesy

Before (originally, I tried making a shirt with both these but they ended up in different projects, the shirt became...well a shirt Tongue and the button up became a skirt Smiley ):

the other shirt i used for the "zapatista girl shirt":


Detail of skirt:



Before: (shirt used to have graphic on front of shirt)

After: (graphic on back! lol)

(my first time using the button maker!!! Cheesy )






After (it has a diagonal design):

Things I Made After the Project


(rest assured that is me Tongue lol i look like a skater Tongue lol Smiley )



Thanks for viewing!

Links to tutorials
Here's the tutorials I used for some of the pieces, but I mainly used them as a guide and then modified them as I went....

1st Shirt (dark blue and light blue shirt):

No Doubt Shirt:

Horrorpops Cardigan:

I'll try to make some tutorials for the others later, but for now here's a few Smiley  Enjoy!
