Finished projects...

Here's some stuff I have been working on, over the holiday season...







this is a tiny dotee doll I did for a swap...

here's my first reconstructed t-shirt I did for my eldest & I'm rather shocked that it came out nice ( ...not trying to gloat or anything...she LOVES it!!)





this is a re-enactment of what it looked like, because I forgot to take a "before" picture, it had short plain black sleeves originally...but it was a freebie shirt I had gotten from buying Kiss cologne. On the front it says"you never forget your first..." & on the back it says "Kiss" & has a picture of a woman's face painted up like Paul Stanley (which is my daughter's LOVE of a lifetime...) anywho, she out grew it last summer, but I know she absolutely LOVED this shirt, so I hung onto it in hopes to turn it into a pillow or something, but I kept reading about how people reconstruct clothing, so I thought I'd give it a try so here's what it looks like now...


sorry these are kinda blurry, but here's a closeup of the sleeve...anywho, it was hard to match the black, cause it was so faded from use...but I thought I'd try to match the red from the face...she loves it & is happy to be able to wear it again...i added a red panel on the sides to blend it all in together ( also to make it fit...) & hopefully she'll be able to enjoy it for a little while longer...


some ornaments ... I made a BUNCH of other ornaments for a swap I did, but forgot to take pictures of them before I sent them out ( I know...bad habit!) they were little teddy bears made form wooden beads & pipe cleaners, they came out pretty cute, so I'm sure I'll make more of those...
& some fleece slipper socks, I used fabric paint to make the flowers on the bottom so they can be used like a non-slip sock...gave some of these away as presents this year...
I'm currently working on these pins for girl scouts....our "Thinking Day" is coming up & I guess everybody gets a country to represent & ours is China, so I was asked to come up with something to make for a swap, so I messed around with some felt scraps & made this little pin. They liked them, so next week I'll show the girlies how to make them & they will use them to swap with other troops...



I apologize for the blurry pictures, still using my camera phone, it works in a pinch...anywho, that's some of the stuff I've been working on for the past month...now onto Valentine's day things, etc....
Have a wonderful day!
A hui hou,
Tina
