Welcome to my Introduction Page

I invite you to view my handmade vest, sewing, aprons, dolls, crafts, clothes reconstruction, recycling, free patterns and other interests my inspiration directs me to.
My name is Larysa Patury. First, I want to thank the people that have visited my site and given me their constructive criticism about it and in doing so made it a better site for others. Here you will find some sewing projects using anything from recycled men's ties and old shirts to new fine and casual materials. Craft examples will be seen of dolls made with recycled panty hose to lamp shades made of silk ivy leaves along with cross stitching and knitting. You are free to browse through my sewing instructions, free patterns and tutorials. Every thing on the pages of this site were all made using my own design from original handmade patterns and constructed by me (unless otherwise noted). My interest changes often meaning that you never know what I will be working on next, be it "T" shirt surgery, Russian dolls, flowers from recycled stockings, skirts, western shirts, pillows or recycled grocery bag rugs and other useful decorative crafts. As I do more and different things you will find not only examples of them but also tips on how they were done and sometimes even instructions or tutorials.

You are invited to share my interest and my creations. Maybe you will even share what you see here with others. I also hope to receive your comments and questions concerning what you might like to see or what you think of what is here. Please send any questions or comments via the "Email" link in the right side of the menu.

I enjoy sewing and making crafts, but making vests is my second love (my husband being the first). Vests are quick, relatively easy and make a great canvas for trying out new construction techniques or embellishment ideas. You can just slip one on over a top and a skirt or pants. It adds versatility, pulls together an outfit and makes a wonderful substitute for a jacket. Whether you want a business, office casual, or weekend look, the right fabric can make your vest versatile enough to meet your needs. Everyone needs a basic vest, which goes with many styles of clothes. It is like a little jacket without being quite as formal or restricting.

Vests truly are wonderful garments for making a showcase of special materials. If the fabric is wide enough, the garment will not be too expensive, since you only need one vest length. Further more you can make each one unique.

Don created this website for me at no cost to us by using free programs to create the graphics and the website. On the links page you will find a link to his site (Best Web Stop) for information on how he did this among other things.

Bandwidth Theft

Linking to images or other content on a site that is not yours is called Bandwidth Theft by the process of Hot Linking. This is considered very wrong and can cost the website's owner money and in some cases cause the site to be shut down. It is also not a safe practice as you can never be sure that the image didn't get changed and maybe the content you hot linked to and placed on your site is now something illegal, like pornography.

There are ways to get legal and good content for your site. The content on my site is all copyright protected but by following a few simple terms and conditions you can use almost every thing you find here free of cost. Since there is a limit on bandwidth from my server (which in some manner is limitted by all host I have heard of) I am concerned about this topic.

How to link to content and how not to link to them....
You may not link directly content found on this site. All content must be downloaded to your hard drive. Then uploaded to your website server. If you link directly to any site with out permission, you are committing Bandwidth Theft.

For backgrounds your background tag should look like this:
<BODY background=[your web server image location] image.jpg>
