11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Re: Memory vials from Half Blood Prince on: July 20, 2009 07:14:34 AM
I am thinking of the glass vials in which insuline or other medication that goes with a pen come in. They don't have plugs, but maybe you could use tiny bits of cork wood or something alike...
Like this: http://www.ster0ids24.com/imgprep/genotropin-04.jpg

The grey plug is rubber and at the deep end when empty and can be pulled out, so it would be completely empty.

ETA: And the writing on the vial is just a label which can easily be pulled off, so the vial is completely straight and clean. 
first off these are VERY hard to come by unless you have a script, secondly they are basically large glass straws, open at both ends, and taking them out of the "pen" or whatever they come in takes far more time and energy than you think, matter of fact, it takes a dremmel and lots of patience, and not hitting the glass while cutting through several layers of plastic is harder than it looks, also, taking the metal cap off one end can and usually does result in the breaking of said glass... i wouldn't suggest this to anyone if i were you, it's dangerous not not nearly cost effective even if you get the pens somehow... and the labels are on the plastic, there's nothing on the glass
Of course I didn't mean anyone should buy those pens, but maybe you know someone who has to use them and will throw them away anyways. I am using a pen for substituting growth hormone and the vials are a) very easy to get out of the pen and b) closed on one side!
There are probably different kinds of pens, ones you refill (which I have) and ones you throw away?
Well anyway, was just an idea.

I got a kind of antique-ish sleeve ironing board in a second hand shop today, cost me 1 Euro... yay! It looked really beastly, though, so I had to jazz it up, of course. I just took the whole thing apart and added new upholstery fabric and some lovely fabric tape and re-used the old upholstery nails and lots of staples to get the thing done.

I LOVE the fabric and I think it's just perfect Smiley

(on the "before" pic there's a tin and pinking shears I also bought very for very little money at the same shop! and on the "after" pic there's just everything I used in the process lieing around Wink )

Ok, Pictures.

After:



Hope you like! Smiley

Thank you! Purse Stuff, it's basically a slightly modified Jordy Bag! I just added the flap and zipper and pockets and made the strap adjustable. Smiley

I made something new! Yeehaw!

Made the bag as well as the wallet out of black cotton and 2 green Bandanas. I love it, unfortunately I had to give it away as it was a request by a friend. She wanted a bag big enough to carry a big folder, a book, her mobile, an extra pocket for chocolate and something to hold her daily 0.5 l Coke-bottle upright. I made the flap double as a zippered pocket. It's really sturdy and I love it! Oh, I said that already.  Tongue




(sorry, you can still see the chalk line from the seam above the zipper)


(action pic! the friend who received it... well I guess it looks better when it's filled!)


(Inside - I didn't have chocolate so I filled the space with a CD Wink )


(In the process; already approved by TEH KITTEH!)






Aaaaand, action pic!


C&C are welcome! Smiley

Thank you! I was just trying to figure out how to make a drawstring bag for a bottle, this helps a lot (I am sooo bad in making things up myself)!
I'm going to try it with a tin, too Smiley

Ok, I'm afraid I've got to back off. I just went through my finances for this and the next month and realised I'm almost broke. Maybe the next time, I'd be so happy to. Smiley
Have fun with your swap! I'll be having an eye on your thread Cheesy

I LOVE the color combo on the bag and the blueish wallet. Very nicely done, too. Smiley

Now I need to get to my sewing machine and make some more, too Wink

Aww that would be great, I've got to go search for that thread and send a PM Cheesy

I will also ask for the shipping prices to the UK. Lol, I am so used to seeing so many non-Europeans over here that it didn't even occur to me that OF COURSE there will be mainly british folks on this swap Cheesy

I'm so excited!
