It's no customization, my mom and I made it all by ourselves when we got inspired by a picture, but here's my cat purse!




Isn't it awesome??

oh, loving this thread!
When there are peroids when I can't go shopping, i have a huge need for some changes in my warderobe. Then i things like:

-Cutting 2 tops in half and sewing the together just right beneath the bust, sometimes I even sew a cute ribbin around the seam

- cutting off/replacing sleves

- with different pieces of clothing that fits me perfect I love pick it apart, and use it as a pattern to sew more in different colors and styles (later I can sew the original piece together again)

- make holes in, and a weared out look to my pants with sandpaper

- sew boleroes of way to short sweathers

- make hair decorations of different things I find in stores and so on

- spraypaint shoes, belts and beltbuckles

- paint on my t-shirts with fabric paint

- sew my own handbags

- buy pearls and make my own special bead necklaces and bracelets

- embroider my purses and t-shirts

I came up with this idea for shorts the other day, and just started making them today! They're not done, but I will post photos when they are.

Picture credit: Me + MS Paint. :p

as promised pics of the Undercover knock off.....am unsure if this is "customised" or "sewing".....the jacket is made out of 4 tshirts.

1. old skate company Birdhouse tshirt with Drew Barrymore smoking in a leopard coat says "I heart cigarette smoke" (I know it's Drew because I remember the photo spread in Details that had this shot back in the early 90s)

2. local artist tee purchased in Kentucky lungs with lightning bolts inside (I had no initial plan for them to be a theme, it just worked out that way)

3. sleeveless tee with a spiderweb used on back and one sleeve (turned to wrong side....couldn't have too much web )

4. Gentleman Jack, Jack Daniels tee used for lining on back and the other slv...turned inside out so it just has texture instead of the actual print.

the zipper is sewn directly onto the jacket so you see the tape....and the neck is left raw....haven't decided if it will get finished later. both sleeves are made out of the bodies of the tshirts one you will see has the rounded edge from the neck, the other was too short, so there are inserts to give it more of a layered length.....the body of the jacket is all double layers, the sleeves are only one layer.
