    Thumbs up

    Ladies, some time ago, there was a member who sent pictures of some clothes she had vamped up! It was a lovely jeans skirt, and it was the bomb! (she can post that again!) Anyone else who has re-done old or new clothes to something more interesting, or different? Not just clothes, but hats, or accessories...LetĀ“s have some pictures! IĀ“ll also try and take pics of some things I have vamped up...We might help each other out with ideas... :thumbsup DonĀ“t be shy...somebody might benefit from your idea....

    I made the bags and matching accessories. The denim & cowrie cuff w/leather ties shown with the pentagon bag was actually made to go with the sueded cotton bag and matching headband. I haven't figured out a way to sell the stuff yet. But it's fun to put fabrics you think compliment each other and then start to sew to see what comes into fruition. Making bags came real easy to me, just think of a cross and sew the edges or study one of your favorite styles and go from there.

    Sorry no clothes, but you said accessories :-cre

    More pics of bags are in the little house. Come on ladies, bring it on, I need some ideas for t-shirts other than that ripped look or the safety pin thing.

    here's a t-shirt idea... i cut the neckband away from the back of the shirt, and cut the sleeves into straps that i tied behind my back.


    & that's all i have to say about that. ;)

    here is my contribution to the reconstruction revolution.

    i had an enormous sized black star tee that was looking tired so.... i cut it up the sides removed the sleeves and made it a bit smaller. i sewed it all back together once i decided what size would work for me and added slits on the sides to give it a kindergartener's art aprony type of feel. the long sleeved shirt underneath just works right now for me since it's a bit chilly over here.




    teekdawg, i'm feelin' that cowrie cuff as well as your purses

    honeychild, the i *heart* nyc is cute as well as your comforter

    Wow! IĀ“m getting quite excited! :razz I didnĀ“t think there would be some post so soon! Skills girl!!! I love the second bag especially...more like my style........IĀ“ve never made a bag yet, though IĀ“d been wondering how to go about it coz I got a beautiful dark velvet material form my sis-in-law. I had planned to make a cusion cover but changed my mind...IĀ“m holding on to it til I find the best thing to use it for..... :thumbsup
