1  my first try at making bottletop earrings in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by firefairy24 on: March 31, 2009 06:15:45 PM
hey this is my first time at making jewelry at all lol. But I had some bottlecaps lying around from my hubby and was like lets see what I could make out of these. My husband thought I was crazy hammering like a mad women lol. Hey I had fun gettin all my frustration out lol.
Its was hard to get the caps flat without denting but in certain spots you see little mistakes.But I still like the end result and I will just keep makin more.  
Any suggestions or comments would be great . Thanks for checkin it out!

2  blue corduroy totebag in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by firefairy24 on: March 28, 2009 08:03:47 PM
Well I just made another bag. I love upcycling and its great to reuse what you already have and no spend a dime lol.
With this bag I used an old button snap shirt. It was a little difficult sewing close to the buttons but I did pretty well I think. The other fabric I used for the side, straps and bottom was a corduroy materail off course from pants lol. I really engoyed working with that material because it was so durable to work with.
The inside for the liner was black and I added a pocket to the inside.

The other bag with the monkey is from a t-shirt I loved so much but didn't fit me anymore. I love monkeys.  Cheesy
I used old jeans for the sides and for the straps.
I hope you guys enjoy and let me know what you think.  
Thanks for lookin  Grin

3  (tote bag) new life to old clothes in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by firefairy24 on: March 23, 2009 09:12:28 AM
Ok so On my day off decided to pull out my trusty sewing machine and get started. I had some old clothes that I had been collecting for a project like this. So I got to work and cut up my old jeans that didn't fit anymore and my mom had dropped off a bag of clothes that I could use. found a shirt I could use for it. The lining was from prexisting fabric I had lying around and here's the outcome. I really like it a lot. Its been awhile  since I got back into sewing.So  let me know what you think.
I was thinking about starting a etsy store but I'm not sure yet. We will see.

Hope you like it!

Ignore the  kitty in the pic the kids thought it would look nice lol!
