alissarose commented on the project Men's Shirt to Skirt Refashion
I love it too! I kind of tried to figure this out before, holding a shirt around me, but I couldn’t get it to look right… Now I know what to do! Looks great! Thanks!

alissarose added the project Tie-dye Crocheted
My third crochet experience! I did not use the t-shirt material as yarn this time, used a soft acrylic instead. Cut and fitted a tie dyed T into a tank then crocheted. Fast and fun!

I made this skirt basing the waistband on a pair of gauchos I have and the skirt on skirt I own. I love fold over waistbands a lot! The color (heather pink) is not at all my top choice but it was h…

I really like lace and crochet accents on clothing. I don’t even remember if I was looking for this or came across it by accident, but I’m sure glad I did! Now I’m getting all into crochet. It was …

alissarose commented on the project First try at reverse applique
Ooo, this looks great! I tried this on a tank top when I first started sewing, but it didn’t come out all that great. You’ve definitely inspired (and reminded) me to try again. Good work!

I really took my time on this, whenever I rush through something thinking it’s going just right it goes all wrong. I used a self made pattern and continuously compared it to the tank I made from it…

My second rag quilt. These quilts are huge confidence builders! I made this one real fast for a beautiful baby girl born February 6th.
alissarose added the project Beautified
This is from when I first started playing with a sewing machine last year, it’s just a cut out from an old embroidered tea table cloth I’ve always had and loved but never used.

I’ve had the material for this for way too long and I had even more ideas for it, but I decided to keep it beyond simple so that I couldn’t mess it up. My friend told me awhile back that she had a …
